    Spray King by Shin Mikuni



    Spray King by Shin Mikuni starts as two oneshot in Shounen Rival's 2008 May and October issue, before becoming a full ongoing series starting from Shounen Rival's 2009 February issue onwards. Shin Mikuni, the mangaka of this series, is an assistant of RAVE Master, Monster Soul, Fairy Tail and Monster Hunter ORAGE's mangaka, Hiro Mashima.

    Summary
    In the city named Kotobuki, there is a rumor of a man who defeats bad people and only leave the giant, beautiful graffiti in the scene. Since no one has ever seen that man in person, they called him "Spray King." Kuroda Miu, a photography student in an art academy and part-time photographer for one of the weekly magazine, wants to capture Spray King onto her photograph in order to create a good scoop in the magazine. One day, she met with Tanaka Torateru, a boy who just entered the academy but wasn't that good in art. How could the meeting of the two lead to the "truth" about the city they lived in and about the hero in the shadow named Spray King?

    Seems interesting to be honest, i will wait for scanlation since i can only appreciate the artwork now without the translation...

    Happy New Year to everyone

    Ooh, I like the art on this one. Story seems a little unoriginal, but...
    If nobody translates it after awhile, I'll give it a shot

    Thanks for the raw!

    I was wondering why the art reminded me of One Piece (no offense to Mashima). I like the idea of including graffiti, but neither the story nor the characters really grabbed me.

    If he dropped the Spray King angle and went with a plot about Miu chasing scoops, particularly involving the shadier side of the city, I would be much more interested.

    i agree with Do Kesubei and slippy. the artwork isn't bad. the characters seem intriguing. but from personal experience the graffiti lifestyle isn't interesting enough to be put in manga form, imo. if it gets picked up for scanlation i'll give it 10 chapters before i make my decision.

    Re: [NEWCOMER]Spray King by Shin Mikuni

    The graffiti was the part that grabbed me the most XD
    I think the story is a little cliche... but I know many mangas with a weak synopsis (is that the word?) and that are still very very good!

    ^ I think you were looking for "a weak plot"

    But yeah, just scimming the raws make it seem like a generic super hero with super powers (that graffiti can did some magic, I dunno), but I'll still read it once its scanlated.

    Re: [NEWCOMER]Spray King by Shin Mikuni

    I will only judge this manga by its art for now. And the art is great, if you ask me. Sure, the story seems a little.. unoriginal, not so interesting but I won't really say any more on that topic until there is a scan of it. If someone starts scanlating I will probably get stuck in it anyway. x)

    There sure are a lot of assistants of Hiro Mashima that are becoming mangaka's.
