I love Colette from Memoirs of Amorous Gentlemen!!! Her character is so strong and beautiful.
This manga is such a refreshing breath from the usual shojo love story.

I've never heard of this mangaka before, but after looking them up and reading the synopsis of a few of their works, they sound like someone right up my alley.

I'll defiantly be entering after I read through a few things of theirs.

YES!! I will be entering I buy all of Ms. Anno's works, been a fan since Happy Mania was released here in the USA. She's one of my role models as an artist and as a story teller. I'm psyched for this!

I love CHOCOLAT from SUGAR SUGAR RUNE because of her relationship with her best friend VANILLA. It showcase her will power to save VANILLA no matter what happens between them she will still be there to save Vanilla.

For my character I chose Shigeta. Since the first time I read Happy Mania Shigeta's antics really stuck with me. So many hated her as a character, understandablely so! She was rash, a flake, made horrible desisions, and was pretty vapid, but that made her oh so REAL!! I've seen girl's act in similar stupid ways, but you know what, it's a part of growing up and it made Shigeta relatable on some level.

Many of Anno Moyoco's work is amazing but the one character that stood out to me the most is Matsukata Hiroko in the manga Hataraki Man. Her character was refreshing, cool, and not tiresome. I thought Hiroko's characteristics of being strong, Intelligent and independent gave a message of inspiration to woman which makes it intriguing as well. It's also one of the few manga's I've read that are like that, and I thinks that's what makes this character and manga appealing.

I chose to draw Chocolat from Sugar Sugar Rune because as cheesy as this sounds, I found her character inspiring as a child. When I first read this series, I was roughly in grade 4. I was that one timid, shy, and un-social-able girl in class that only had 1 or 2 friends. Reading and watching Chocolat's character develop throughout the series was what made me pull through that "awkward stage" as a kid. Her bright, fun, and enthusiastic self made me strive to become like her. I know even though she wasn't "real", Chocolat was the very few role-models I had back then and I'm glad she made me become the person I am today. Even though Moyoco Anno herself might not even get to read this, I would just like to thank her from the bottom of my heart for creating such a heartening and uplifting series.

I chose to draw Noko from In Clothes Called Fat

I have always been a shy person, and teased all the way through school, people avoiding me and calling me disgusting etc. Then in high school my supposed best friend hurt me and broke my trust, she would treat me terribly. So reading her In Clothes Called Fat I can't help but feel for her. I have never been fat myself, but I know what it feels like to hate your body.
Reading the manga, I just felt so bad for her... And stories that make me feel tend to be my favoutire. Just want to give her a hug. </3

Plus she is so cute!

I chose Shigeta from Happy Mania. Happy Mania was the first Moyoco Anno manga I ever read and I instantly fell in love with the comic and with Shigeta. She's fun, loud, not afraid to be herself and say whats on her mind. She can be mean, rude, and she makes tons of mistakes which was so new to me in a manga heroine. As I got older, I found myself making some of the same mistakes she made. She's so human and so impulsive and I really loved that about the comic. Since Happy Mania, I have actively sought out every Moyoco Anno comic to own. She's definitely one of my favorite of all time. But Happy Mania and Shigeta stick out the most.

The beer says "Runaway Girl" in kanji and I wanted to continue on where I think the ending left off.

Chocolat from Sugar Sugar Rune is my favorite. She's cute, tough, brave and fiery but nice to her friends. She wasn't popular with her classmates when she started school in the human world unlike her bestfriend Vanilla but she still won them over with her fun and nice personality. She didn't need to change who she is to make friends as everyone liked her for what she is. Even when there was a problem in her friendship with Vanilla, she stayed as a good friend and was determined to be her bestfriend again. I liked her character cause she seemed like a very fun person to be with. I wish I had a friend like her. XD
