Snowbound - A Magical Girl Manga
- Snowbound -
Imagine if you lived in a world where a simple thing seen by millions of people every year simply didn't exist anymore. Where something people saw as both beautiful and terrifying, depending on the conditions, were to just one day vanish? This is the world of Yukino Maeda, a teenager who lives in a world that is just about identical to ours, right down to the names of places. The only major difference is it hasn't snowed in over a hundred years for her.
One day, Yukino comes to a startling discovery; she has the power to create and control both snow and ice, a gift from a strange being. However, with this gift comes a price as creatures known as daemons begin to swarm her city. Though she doesn't know it yet, these creatures are after her to take the power she has. Lying deep within her power lies something deeper, something that should be kept from the world.
With the help of her friends, Yukino must master her powers so she can protect those she holds dear. She must learn what the daemons are after and what power she holds deep within her.
Snowbound is a magical girl manga designed to take place in the real world. It's a character-focused story based in Toronto, Canada, the home of the story's creator and writer. The world shares all of the history and events of our world, making it virtually the same world.
Left to Right: Chung, Aly, Tallara, Yukino, Erick, Tamsyn, Maria
A Japanese teenager who recently moved to Toronto to live with her older cousin, Yukino is friendly and open, though is often quiet and rather introverted due to past events in her life.
A monk from a temple known as the Carsepholus Temple, Erick has come to Toronto to deal with the growing number of daemons in the city. He's a bit two-faced, sometimes being stoic, quiet and serious and at other times being a brazen show-off. He's generally a nice guy, though, always helping others.
A genius inventor who is known to study things like aerospace engineering, computer science and particle physics in her spare time. Maria is rather anti-social and has a rather high IQ. She has few friends due to her not wanting to be around people she thinks are stupid. Oddly enough, her best friend is Tamsyn.
Both active and sporty, Tamsyn is often the life of the party. She's incredibly social, sharing a large number of friends though she considers Maria her best friend. She's a bit boy-crazy and loves to get attention, but is always willing to help someone out even if they're a stranger.
Chung "Chu" Luu
Born in Australia, Chu is known for her love of video games, art, and of the macabre. A tough girl, Chu won't put up with anyone's nonsense. She's quick to protect her friends from trouble, and likewise she can be pushy with them if they won't keep her in the loop.
A rich girl who has anything she wants, Aly is a bit of a ditz. Despite her incredibly friendly personality, she can be rather dumb to an almost stereotypical degree. She doesn't mind, though, since she accepts that everyone else has their own strengths and weaknesses.
An Inuit from the northern reaches of Canada, Tallara is proud, arrogant and very stubborn. She's the greatest hunter in her village, which says a lot given she only has a few years experience. However, she's helpful to those she respects, and she respect those who show great bravery.
The artists I'm working with all work in art for a living, so you can expect a professional level of quality in the manga. However, it'll read from left-to-right as Western comics typically do. While we love the style, we felt that, since most of our readers would be from North America, we should make everything read as people from North America and Europe are used to.
Alright, there we go. I had some issues with this post as... well, truth be told I wasn't aware of some of the forum rules and some of the links I posted weren't allowed. Everything's fixed now, though! My apologies to the admins!
I'm posting this up to get feedback on my up and coming manga, Snowbound. Along with thoughts on the general story and the characters, I'll be posting up more artwork, more story details and possibly even the first chapter script to hear what people think of them!
