“name that mangaka” answers
And all things must come to an end. Thank you very much to everyone who participated, and thank you for the support of those who couldn’t participate because they are too young, too new to BL manga or just have taste in mangaka that clashes from my own. Really, you are all too nice to me. ♥ Again, thank you very much for your continued support over the past year and for making my little anniversary celebration a success—in the past couple days this blog has gotten more hits than it usually does in a week and a half. It was quite shocking, but a pleasant surprise nonetheless.
Anyway, I hope all those who participated enjoyed the game even if they didn’t necessarily win anything! I wanted to get more people involved and wanted to promote the mangaka I used, and I consider my attempt at least vaguely successful. If you won a prize, expect an email/tweet/PM from me in the next day or so. But as promised, here are the answers for my little mangaka quiz.
From left to right.
Aniya Yuiji (of course she was first—too obvious!)
I tried to make it difficult, but not too difficult which is why I used mangaka who I have reviewed on here or specifically mentioned liking on iamfujoshi, etc. I’m sorry if the images I used were difficult—my friend even complained to me that the images I used weren’t necessarily all that representative of the mangaka’s general art styles. So don’t feel bad if you had trouble, even if you feel you’re quite good at mangaka recognition!
The highest anyone got was 29 mangaka out of 30, and the one everyone recognized was Nekota Yonezou. The two people seemed to have most trouble with were Yamanaka Hiko and Miike Romuko. Also, very many people said “Kamuro Akira” for Takao Hiroi’s image! Haha I still gave it to you since they collaborate, but just fyi Takao Hiroi is the mangaka and Kamuro Akira is the writer.
Anyway, if you’re curious about which manga each picture came from, feel free to ask.
