◆ 2020 GIGAZINE Manga Award 'Prize' work announcement
From the works submitted in 2020, Mr. Sukoyaka 's original name work 'Secret Miyazono' was selected as a 'winning prize'.
Rin Miyazono, a girl with the same surname as herself, met Kanon Miyazono, who has a constitution that makes her friends unable to make friends. Rinne claimed to be an android developed to play an active role as an astronaut, and in return for his success, he was allowed to 'marry someone he likes and make him an android.' Rinne, a bright, active and smiling android, which is the opposite of Hanane, creates a big whirlpool in Hanane's life.
In the final selection, in addition to the examination of the editorial department, GIGAZINE secret club (GSC) examination of readers point of view by, ' ceased lie touch Ameamefure ' Yumeki's drawing in charge, same examination in tiger Taro's original name in charge Since I received comments, I summarized the points of evaluation.
Editorial department comment
Even if it is not a perfectly completed manga, we can see the future where a good manga work will be created if any one of the characters, drawing power, and scenarios is satisfied. Anyway, this work has a strong 'composition power' of the story, and it is the timing and way of showing the SF setting that is strong against the heartwarming development, the way of showing pretending and punch line from the introduction, if it is calculated, it is amazing natural Greater. In addition, the basic interaction between the characters functions as a good-tempo bokeh and tsukkomi, and even the pretending part that makes it boring in terms of development has the power to read with 'momentum'.
GIGAZINE Secret Club (GSC) Closed evaluation
Even just one episode was interesting, and it was even more interesting to see the plot up to the final episode. Both the so-called 'Yuri' genre and the 'SF' genre are strong and likely to be received by fans. It was a little difficult to understand because the text information settings came out in episodes 1 and 2. The SF setting is interesting, but I felt it was a waste to have no design that could be understood in the characters and background even though the stage was in the future.
Yumeki ('Ameame Fure Fure Usoyande' drawing) Judging comment
While strengthening the SF setting, it was good that it was easy to stick if you did not feel the SF feeling as a whole. I think it's good that the interaction is expressed like a romantic comedy!
It was easy to read because the frame division was good and the facial expressions of the characters were cute. I think it will be even better if you focus on parts of the body, skirts, wrinkles of clothes (fetish parts), etc. in a sex appeal scene.
It seems that there are many serious scenes in the latter half of the story, so I think it will be important to be able to draw them well.
Tiger Taro ( 'Ameamefure touch lie stopped by' the original name) examination comment
I felt that it was very good that the character was cute and lively, and at the same time, was raised as a personality with a solid backbone.
Since the lines and actions are focused on momentum, I was worried that the part that convinces 'why it will happen' is not drawn, so the order and selection of the information to be explained, the development assuming the target reader I think it would be nice to be aware of emotional movements.
We will continue to aim for serialization in the future, so we hope that both members who participated in the judging and those who do not can look forward to the development.
