My name is Kathryn K Williams, but most just call me Kat. I've just returned to the world of manga this year after a 5 year break in which I spent the time writing novels.

Before anyone asks my nick comes from my first Manga, A Shadowlander's Dream, and has nothing to do with Death Notes or Bleach. I took it on 10 years ago and it literally mean “Death Sister” which is how I felt about myself back then and now the nick sort of has stuck.

I've been drawing anime/manga style for about 15 years now and created my own self published manga between the years of 98-03 in which I attended way to many convention and finally my life took a nose dive so I was in for a much needed break. I turned to writing novels for the next few years and have finished 7 so far, all online, mostly insane psychological stuff, really messed up things for the most part. Last year I finally got back to art again, then due to the insane amount of requests I began working on a new manga, which brought me here as I search for other places to share my works and maybe to find others to talk shop with for I've become pretty much a recluse after my crash.

I'm actually disabled, for life, and so spend much of my time in front of the computer working on art and writing. My fav topics of discussion are psychology and the inner workings of fear, hence my being a horror writer. LOL I watch and read way too much anime/manga and when I'm not doing that I'm reading novels, just finished the 6th book in the Demonatta series.

Well that is enough of me. Don't want to bore the hell out of people.

jaa ne

Oh hey.

You know what's better than manga? Jam. Jam is better than manga.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

Not for me. I read comics for years and got tired of it. Turned to manga 15 years ago and have been enjoying it every since. The thing is I'm a shoujo fan and there is not good comics that focus on female audience.

Thanks for the welcome and for looking at my works. I'm glad you liked it. I usually do horror so this is my first attempt at something different.

Thanks for the welcome.

Funny about 5 years ago I barely heard of anyone with the same name as me and then I meet a whole bunch at once. Strange.

7 in 5 years I should say, 2 are series which people keep demanding more of. I was finishing one a year for a bit there and have way to many unfinished novels now. This new manga I'm working on started out as a novel, but it works better as a manga. Funny how I return to manga after years of horror writing and end up writing a romance. LOL

Well back to work with me. I have 5 pages to complete this week and so far only 2 are done.

Kat

Thanks, all the 15 years means is that I've been hooked on the art form longer then some of my fans have been alive. *nervous laughter* There are a lot of artist who have been at it much less time and are hundred times better. Everyone is a beginner one day and the good artist are the ones who never quit.

Well thanks for the welcome, off to sleep with me I think… 2 pages finished in one night…

I have no idea how you could stand reading the same thing over again for 15 years.

Hello.

Hello.

Because there is a never ending supply of great shoujo stories and even after all this time I can't keep up with it all. It is not the same that is for sure, sure some stories are recycled, but there is a lot out there that is inspiring and very beautiful. I just wish more would realize this instead of instantly thinking all manga is the same.

I say that because I used to read tons of manga and I eventually stopped because it was all the same.

Anyway, no sense starting a debate in the hello/goodbye forum.

I can't see anything in the forum rules that says we can't have a debate in the hello/goodbye forum, as long as that debate involves being welcoming, uplifting, positive and generally nice to the new poster.

Hello Kat, I would like to propose the motion that this is a wonderful place and we all love you dearly. Anyone care to oppose the motion?
As sure as I believe there's a heaven above, Ozone,
I know there's something much more,
Something even non-believers can believe in.

I would have to say the opposite stands for me consider I spent years reading Marvel, DC and Image only to find a few interesting stories and the rest just never seemed to end.

If North America started making comics that actually targeted girls then maybe I would be more interested, but for now I'm sticking with my shoujo manga. Plus considering I'm mainly interested in lesbian love without the porn aspects manga is where I stay.

After as many years as I've heard the debate it is one that I would end with, “You read what you like and I'll read what I like.” because it is one debate that I have grown rather tired. I'm 34 years old and have been interested in Anime since the 70s. I've read a lot of different comics and shoujo is my fav. It is like trying to tell someone to stop reading horror. I just happen to like high school girls drama and there is not much to change that. If you know of any comics like that I'm willing to read them, I tend to read everything, but shoujo manga will always be my fav.

Hello Kat, I would like to propose the motion that this is a wonderful place and we all love you dearly. Anyone care to oppose the motion?

Not sure how to answer to that considering you barely know me, but thanks for the welcome all the same.

Greetings, I am Goumranthrandar, resident tiefling, wizard, and crazed alchemist. I love manga as well, been reading Yen +, they have quite a mix of styles in there. Loves me some Maximum Ride manga
Tieflings have no lands to call their own. They make people feel uncomfortable and are generally shunned.

Personality:
Due to their fiendish heritage, tieflings are a sinister and cunning people, often drawn to the path of a rogue and mercenary work. The majority of tieflings have an evil alignment and do not get along well with most other people.

Nice to meet you.

I've not read Yen+, been addicted to Yuri Shimai and works by Morinaga Milk.
