Since I didn't see any thread about it, the results from Shonen Jump's Manga Competition came in.
The Team Before Daybreak won the grand prize of 1500,000 yen and will be printed worldwide. It was also the most popular in Japan and China.
El Viento Del Norte was the most popular in America, getting 500,000 yen and being published in America's Shonen Jump.
The other four works have good expectations and will be shortlisted.
What are your opinions on the whole thing? Honestly, Team Before Daybreak was too Hellsing for me.
And here's the link.
I missed the chance to read them and they don't seem to be up anywhere anymore. Which sucks.
You can read them when they are printed digitally online.
But what of the other contestant?
Were all of them from American artists?
This one was from Taiwan.
The other ones I couldn't find, but you could probably get to them in a few google searches.
Just look at the fucking picture, fuck's sake.

I'm surprised no Japanese entries made the top 6. I wonder if the US entry was a pity entry just so they could have 1 US entry in there.
Seems like. It really was half baked.
>nto Del Norte was the most popular in America, getting 500,000 yen and being published in America's Shonen Jump.
Don't worry, not to be that guy but most of them sucked. Specially Sweat Man
Person who wrote it seems pretty cool.
Not surprised , team before daybreak is the strongest of he entries (supposedly the author has years of experience in the trade already) while not being very original. The Spanish entry was genuinely interesting though visually not as strong.
What's suprising is that el Norte made it. Its artistically decent but its premise and story is insultingly bland
Boom was the best one.
>The entry was lacking in terms of edginess
Boom was the worst one, all it had going for it was art
