Horror/Mystery: An investigation's happening after people start mysteriously dying and dissappearing. Our MC starts realizing he can't remember certain things, and slowly start's going mad after he realizes that he's somehow involved, but can't remember a thing about the incidents. His personality and actions change, and slowly he remembers less and less of the time. By the end, he's trapped in the insanity he created.

Romantic Comedy: Amaterasu and Susanowo the two gods make a bet regarding whether or not a Someone from earth could make 10 girls fall in love* with him within a 1 year time span. Uzume(Another God) would have to pick the person and help him out the condition being that if he fails it means his life. The protagonist 18 years old, just out of high school get's chosen. Having little to no experience with women he is now faced with getting 10 girls to fall in love* with him even though he's never had a girlfriend to start with.

The God's are based of Japanese deities
*Not necessarily fall in love like deep romantic love but Actual affection and compassion that's not as strong.

Note: I have read all the entries thus far. I enjoyed reading them all. I have included my thoughts on each. I may have asked some questions in regards to your plot. If I did this do not worry as I just want to know more about it and where it can go. I do apologize if I say hmm the plot gives off a <insert anime title here> vibe....it's nothing against your idea. I just want to bring it to your attention and keep you from going down the "it's too similar to <insert anime title here>". We wouldn't want the audience to feel like they have seen this/read this before. So far I've enjoyed everyone's ideas. Thank you to those who have submitted now. I await anymore submissions. Good Luck to everyone who submits an idea. I really hope I don't come off as harsh, I just wanted to bring up some things.


This is a pretty good idea. It's definitely something I would watch. You seem to have been inspired a little by The World God Only Knows...or am I just noticing a coincidence? I loved TWGOK and this seems to have a similar formula while still being fresh and original. We just should be careful not to have this plot be too similar to that of TWGOK. I do like the fact that the protagonist has little to no experience with the ladies. So not every girl will be in love with him like in most harems,right? Also how in depth would the characters be? With a lot of comedies I notice that some of the characters are only their archetypes. This some what bothers me. How would you flesh out the characters more? Good Job sir. I really liked your idea.



Hmm I find this to be an interesting idea. I'm big on the psychological horror/ mystery genre. so the plot has intrigued me. So there are people disappearing and MC is part of the case to solve this mystery, correct? "However MC soon learns he can't remember things and goes mad when he learns he is involved." This is definitely were I am intrigued. I want to know in which way the MC is involved and why he is not remembering things. In the end he let's his delusions consume him and becomes trapped in his insanity, right? Very interesting. I do really like your idea and am intrigued to know more. Do you mind explaining your plot a bit more? I would just like to know a little more so I can get a better vision of what you are saying. It sounds like a very complex plot and explaining it a bit more might help bring it out.



I like the idea. This plot definitely seems like it will follow the Hero's Journey as it ends with the MC's call to action(well what you gave me does). Therefore you may want to keep the hero's Journey steps in mind just to keep the pacing. How else is the government more corrupt other than not befriending peasants? I could be wrong, but wasn't that a common thing in a lot of kingdom governments whether law or not. It was taboo to interact with those of a lower class? How else could you prove to me that the government is corrupt. I also get a small sense of a Code Geass vibe. It does not seem to be going to being a Code Geass clone, but it seems to have a similar idea.

Also I think that me saying the genre would be a RomCom is quite misleading, my bad. It would more be like a psychological romance with a nice amount of comedy if that makes sense. It's would be quite a lengthy story too.

He's suffering from having Multiple Personalities or some kinds of dementia. He's losing memory of him being near any of the acts, so he suspects he's the cause. This causes his mental state to slowly get worse, into hallucinations and being more angry/depressed from things that have no meaning. His anger and hallucination drive him to do these things, just to forget they ever happened. He's trying to figure out if he's actually the killer, but he's slowly losing it from the realization he's unknowingly doing terrible things. However, since he doesn't know a single thing, It's not like he could easily prove either innocence or guilt. The town itself is investigating, but it's going no-where, since it happens that anyone involved in the search or near crime scenes would be the next victim. He wants it to end, and he realizes there's no way he can do that, since he has no evidence against himself(Other personality or him destroys or hides it first). That's the main plot.
