Summary:
The story consists of students in a particular class starting to disappear for wierd yet somewhat plausible reasons such as suicide or becoming psychotic. These can happen but often the causes are hard to find. Our super student, Tsuyoshi Mandai (a.k.a. Tosh) starts to see a pattern with the disappearances and ends up digging too deep.

Background:
Aku Chi is my baby. i first came up with the idea when i sketched out my main character at age 14. I wanted him to be a hidden and somewhat harsh character but regarded as a super student. A little bit like Sasuke but i didn't want him to be Sasuke; a douche bag. I want him to represent the human ideal. but he is still human. he will make mistakes, be overjoyed but also sad. so not emotionless but not emo lol.

So i've planned the story over the past 3/4 years and i've basically got the first 25 chapters solidly in my head and the first 5 written up or sketched out.


so the cover:
I was horribly stuck for cover art ideas and trying to draw someone on a biycle is incredibly difficult so i decided to go for this instead. the odea kinda borrowed from Gantz's cover pages but i hope i made mine a little different. at least ym atyle is very different.

i think it is probably noticable which character i started first and ten which i quickly ended on. The quality of the drawings are varied lol At least Tsuyoshi Mandai (main character at front) i kinda got right. And pretty happy with Honmori Aota (female character second from right).

i hope you like this cover for my epic project. i'm pretty surprised i even did this tbh. it was mainly because a group i'm a part of are revamping their folders and so deleted everything and now want people to resubmit their original mangas along with a cover page xD

please comment on whether you like this type of cover or if you think covers are better with big epic scenes of the main characters??

:bulletred: PLEASE CRITIQUE HERE ABOUT THE COVER PRIMARILY BUT ALSO THE MANGA SO FAR, IF YOU HAVE READ IT AND CAN BE BOTHERED TO THAT IS XD

I know you thought about Gantz when you did this. But if you think about it, it's not that similar.

:P well that's why the words influence and inspiration were made :P

I mainly did this coz 1. i couldn't think of a better cover and 2. i tried to do the normal style of cover and it flopped hardcore lol.

thanks ;)
