Description: www.kirucomics.co.uk

In a world similar to ours, a select few individuals are able to develop extra-ordinary abilities. After a period of chaos and destruction known as “The Dark Days”, the world nations decided the best way to manage this phenomenal was to create a nation that could monitor and contain these individuals. This nation was called the Almier nation. Individuals with supernatural abilities (known as flame users) have to join the Almier nation and successfully become an Almier before they are allowed back to their normal lives. If they refuse or cannot achieve the status of Almier, these individuals are permanently sealed away from their abilities and can no longer access them.

A small group of flame users who do not wish to be monitored or contained by the Almier set out to take down the nation. At the same time the Almier Nation decides it can do much more than just monitor extra-ordinary humans. It decides it can help to achieve world peace and begins trying to convince the world of this via diplomatic means.

Ah, c'mon.  This Rose person was really supposed to believe that the kid would quietly stick around and do what he was told?  How dumb would you have to be not to expect that bed to be empty?  If this is the quality of the good guys' operatives, methinks they've gotten used to relying on their powers so much they've forgotten how to use their brains.

The characters interactions seems good, although the stuff about the watch was out of place and useless. A joke would have been better instead that scene.

What?  Obviously the toughs are about to try to steal or extort the watch, which he will be extremely reluctant to allow because of its sentimental value/his feeling of being responsible to his parents for it.  That stuff was just setting up that conflict, has to be done.

The lore and characters. Theres a ton of useless information (do we really need to know their nationalities?) being dumped on the reader and then theres even more information thats hinted out but not (yet?) explained.

 

Ah yes, this is a comon feedback we've received... we aim to rectify this moving forwards. We hope you can stick with it long enough to see us improve. Thanks.

 may I ask what is meant by that?

Seems like the writers look this place over sometimes and are interested in feedback.  So I'll give a bit more in-depth reaction than I usually might.  Let's see . . .

Basically, it seems very "X-men".

Overall, I think this has potential, but it hasn't fully shown it yet.

 

Thank you for this in depth feedback, you've mentioned a lot interesting points, that we'll be taking into consideration as we move forwards.

I really like the concept at the moment, it's just that....I don't know, I can't seem to get into the story or the characters, and when I read it I always feel so detached and uninterested.

 

I really like stories about super powers and users, and the art is quite good, but right now everything is pretty loose and it's not grabbing me in...or maybe it's just me ^^;

Thick and dense.

The art is good, the story is not new but has great potential, and your comic may become really good, keep up the good work.

They are from London so...

My (not so) humble opinion:
I have feeling that i'm reading american cartoon made into mangalike comic. A\nd i don't like it. It's done properly, nicely drawn, good typesetting but story is just... i don't know? Childish? Immature? Like Airbender or Witch. Of course it's not bad, but it's probably reason for such low rating.
 

 

Hi Racky

 

Keep up with the story, next issue comes out next month. We hope to change your mind about it. :)

Aaand kinda late again for the response. How far are you ahead with the chapters ? If you have plenty of them, you can try doing weekly uploads, you will get some more subscribers this way. If you are having your own website, like just post it in the info of the comic. Always good to have original source.


Oh, and keep up the good work.

 

Hi again Ku4eto

 

Thanks for the advice. Will be sure to do that.

 

As for putting the chapters up weekly, we can't do that because we're not that far ahead and also because we cannot produce chapters that fast, we're independent and unfortunately not as efficient as Jump yet :) ... this is why we've elected to put them out monthly.

Some of the japanese mangas have employed more western approach and they were quite successful. This has more japanese look than american, although it still has it.

I think that Delphi wrote everything that should be said about "japanese look". Also, i've never said that it was bad, it's just that it's obviously western work, no matter how you look at it.

I have firstly started with japanese anime, then moved into the manga as well, then started reading korean manhwa + some chineese manhua. Aand then watched Avatar : The legend of Korra. The amount of difference between the art is huge. But is alos very much dependant on the author/artist. Some of the japanese mangas have employed more western approach and they were quite successful. This has more japanese look than american, although it still has it. Have you seen Freaks Squele and Dreamland ? Both are available here on Batoto and are from french authors. The art is really different, but it is western style, and it doesn't do any bad to the comics, since both are really popular.

Very exposition heavy, and the banter feels really false and cheesy, But I'm willing to keep giving this a chance.

 

One thing I notice about the art style, and this is something I see in most manga-style western comics, is the heavy reliance on screentones over pen and ink shading. Maybe it's just that we're used to western comics being in full color, but it seems whenever a western artist tries to imitate the manga style they'll have very insubstantial lineart and overuse screentones, especially for backgrounds and environments. This is just a pet peeve of mine about western manga because it kind of shows that their focus is on the shape of the style they're imitating and not its substance.

Good job as well. I like how you are using the way british talk. Maybe you have done your research :) I also like the art, for a self published, this is on whole another level.

Sorry, kinda didn't notice this, did not followed again after 2-3 of no response -_-.

Anyway, seems like you got it fixed by yourself. You can also upload chapter 2 now.

Hi guys, first of all i want to say a great big thank you to all of you for taking an interest in my work... I am so very sorry about the confusion in the upload... i have requested for this chapter to be deleted and then I will start again... loool please bare with me. This is my first time ever using batoto and as you can see i'm pretty rubbish at it.

 

I can't express how happy i am to see people taking an interest in it, even if you're commenting to criticise the work we are happy to hear from you. I will read every comment and consider the feedback carefully because only through that can we improve our work. :)

 

So first of all, @ku4eto you said several of the bubble got doubled text, can you explain what you mean by this. I would really like our team to have a look at the matter and see if we can fix it.

 

Secondly @VawX you think it will be better categorized as other? does anyone else agree?

 

Much love

Hameed

"Coppers is slang for police"

#DEAD!!!!

Why is this even here? I think this is in the wrong website...

 

There are few problems here : First the Chapter says CHAPTER 2 : CAPTAIN OBVIOUS, while this one is listed as Ch.1 Hero. Also, several of the bubbles got doubled text.

 

Chapter 1 said its chapter 2

 

Hmmm

 

wait.. is this really manga mmm...~?
isn't this more like Reon Merryweather work and be categorized "other" mmm...~?

Sorry like i said i messed up the uploading... is it possible to fix it at all and actually upload the real chapter 1?

 

If so does anyone know how?

Batoto is perfectly fine with self published works being put on it, evidence being that i've seen staff say so on other works like this. secondarily despite my confusi9on on what counts as chapter one or two this is really nice looking for self published stuff

Sorry guys this was put on a delayed timer... chapter 2 wasn't supposed to come out yet i messed up the uploading

Yes, for a self published manga, this actually has the best quality i have seen here. All others were horrible...
