Decay Summary
Genre: Older Teen/Seinen, Fantasy, Fighting, Supernatural

In the World of Archipelago (group of islands), justice has reigned for many generations, but evil has lay dormant in this world of peace. Archipelago has been ruled by the Kingdom of Pandoras, who keeps peace by their own rules which have started to become corrupted. A cursed evil woman, Saliria Tombs who has been living in secret her entire life, soon emerges to execute her own mission and to show this world can never be truly peaceful.
This will be aimed towards a Older Teen/Seinen manga. It will have deaths, but no extremely violent scenes. We're going to be on other platforms to release chapters, so places like this will probably be not updated as fast. Thank you to anyone for viewing. We'd really love for you to subscribe to the Youtube, and if you got a Facebook, join the Facebook Group. Youtube will be the center source of most information. We're planning to do chapter previews with videos. We will update this post with replies showing updated info. Thank you for being interested!

The 1st Chapter is in production. We are looking for it to be released in the Summer and latest being the Summer-Fall. Also, the cover was revised and redone and audience demographic.

We've made some updates to the main post. However, we have taken down quite a bit of information to leave it for the chapter releases and to clean the main post up a bit. Youtube and Facebook will be our two main places of news and info when we start to get the ball rolling with chapters. Before chapter one releases, we'll be giving updates, videos, and more on where to go to read the chapters.

What are the main influences (inspirations) for your manga, because it looks interesting? Your artwork reminds me of BLAME!.

I've been inspired by a number of mangas as well as real life art. As far as manga and anime go, I'd say Bleach, Berserk, Gantz, Trigun Maximum, and Ghost in The Shell all have inspired me to work on my art. I like the roughness of Berserk, but Gantz is smooth. I have an image in my head and try to replicate it the best of my ability.

Is it going to be a one-shot manga or a long series?

We'll be doing a long series. We're looking at seasonal chapter releases (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall), and some cool videos on the Youtube Channel to accompany the manga. We might do some original music as well!

Yeah, Berserk really influenced me in both story and art style. Gantz I just love how smooth the finished product is. Hellsing is another one of my influences.

First chapter will be releasing last month of Summer or close to Fall unless delays. We'll be on Webtoons for sure, and more than likely Tapas. Public releases will be free, unless anyone wants read it before public release. It'll be available for purchase before release. Still working on most of those details! Updates will be put on Youtube and Facebook faster. =)

That's an awesome drawing! You should make this one the cover art and, of course, draw an epic background behind the character. That would be sick!

Thanks Noodles! We're are actually thinking about putting this drawing on the back cover of the book as well when we hopefully get to a level of physical publishing. I'm going to be seeing what else I can do with it :)

@Abysmal Flop

We've got the dates on when the book will be releasing:
  • August 29th - 1st Ch Two Month Pre-Release
  • September 26th - 1st Ch One Month Pre-Release
  • October 31st - 1st Ch Worldwide Free Release on Webtoons and Tapastic
A lot will be led up to the free release. Pre-release going to be available to purchase. It's awesome we'll be releasing it Halloween. We're looking to get into some comic and anime/manga cons in the future.

The channel will have more awesome stuff on the way!
