Ynopsis but for Svetlana Chmakova s Dramacon I used Tokyopop s The reason being that this is what made me pick up the first volume at Barnes Noble and check it out Unfortunately this one oesn t live up to it s escription The characters aren t very well fleshed out and they seem to jump around a lot For example Derek goes from being kind of a jerk as far as boyfriends go but an ok guy to trying to rape Christie Pretty big change if you ask Me And The Reasoning Behind and the reasoning behind oesn t uite add up for me That said I have to admit it s a bit of a guilty pleasure for me The first two volumes are out and I read them both in BN s cafe one night I think it has to How to Train a Cowboy do with my love for conventions and other people srama which go hand in hand I think the series has a lot of promise but is missing the mark Hopefully the third book will improve the series and I can indulge in some vicarious One Special Moment dramaFor manga and anime reviews please check out Hobotaku This is so cute and funny And also made my sorry ass to wish for Cons This series has not aged wellI read the first two volumes right in the thick of my weaboo stage but never got around to reading the last book A recently made acuaintance forced it on me the otheray and here I amThe biggest flaw in the book is how it expounds the virtue of Original English Manga There s this one particular author who s used as a success story best selling mobs of fanS they re turning her mangas into a movieThis angle is understandable considering A DramaCon is a OEL and B It was published by TokyoPop the only manga company to bother with OELsOh and TokyoPop has since gone bankrupt and shut A Touch of Persuasion (Men Of Wolff Mountain down operations in North America Other OEL artists who got contracts with other companies suffered similar fatesSo that only shows howated the series is it comes from a time when people genuinely believed they could get into the business Now as far as I know it s if you want your stuff published build up a fan following online and then go from there See TeahouseBut I Watch for Me by Moonlight (The Midnight Twins, digressOther low points of the manga includes pairing up the onlyark skinned characters which is just wat overwrought storyline where a mom almost The Mommy Makeover disowns heraughter for wanting to accept a publishing contract that she was offered and the general pocky is the best lol yaoi etc etc silliness of weaboo cultureAlso the romance where she keeps getting mad at the guy for no reason and running away And the awful art where a side profile of her face is just an eye blank space a point that s supposed to be her noseDramaCon is a series with very limited appeal and I apparently fall out of it s target audience Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww It s over This is

Love Dramacon and think it s brilliant
*That said I still wish this final installment had gone a bit ifferently Compared to the first *said I still wish this final installment had gone a bit ifferently Compared to the first volumes Christie and Matt got very little screen time Instead much of the comic focused on Bethany s relationship with her mother and her own fledgling romance While this story thread is very Alpha (Shifters, dramatic and compelling Iid start the series with Christie and I would have liked to spend time on her character at the end of itDramacon Volume 3 changes focus rather Whalerider dramatically in comparison to the first two books in the series as with the focus on Bethany and with much of the focus moving away from the actual convention That said this is still a great culmination to a much loved series Christie and Matt resolve most of their relationship problems once and for all Bethany finally reveals her love of art to her motherBy the end of the book there is a sense that whatever these characters encounter in the future they ll be okay Because they have each other That s a nice lesson to learn and one that this manga conveys very well Dramacon was almost always cheerful and exuberant so it was nice to see the series end on an optimistic high note because the characterseserved nothing less as a sendoff HOW DID THIS DO EVERYTHING I WANTEDI love manga SO MUCH Funny and amazing last manga of the seriesThis was a very nice last manga I am glad we got to see Matt a lot than in the last volume The romance was just so cute I finished this one really uickly maybe to uickly I also enjoyed Bethany s story a lot when she is finally ready to reveal her love for art to her mother I am thankful for the ending but still wish there was a fourth volume after The short story at the end from the point of view of Matt was so cute a bit cheesy maybe but it made me smile so much55 I ecided to finally pick this series up after I met Svetlana at a convention as one of my Featured Artists I really enjoyed this view of the life of a convention artist I feel sad its only a 3 volume set but on the other hand short means i can actually pick it up and finish it great art
