A future of animal people manga

Anybody know of a manga title that takes place in a future where humans were turned into animal hybrids? Somebody in a different threat mention it, but didn't told me the title.

Sometimes it is hard to understand his writing, and he tells a lot in his story.

Re: Fantasy or Sci Fi

In the beginning of the Lord of the Rings book, JRR Torkien wrote a brief history about the Hobbits before he began his story. He really goes into detail.

Re: Fantasy or Sci Fi

I guess getting new ideas is now hard this year. Most of the Japanese manga still follow the cliche', however they make the setting and the races look different. Final Fantasy is one of them.

Re: Fantasy or Sci Fi

I guess because a lot of fantasy books became as cliche' as the original books, the authors don't have to explain a lot. But that kind of kills their originality. Writers don't have to add elves, orcs, and dwarves in their fantasy setting. They can invent new creatures or races that are new. But I b...

Re: Fantasy or Sci Fi

Good ask. Also do you think there is too much science explanation in most science fiction books, while fantasy seems to be more character focus?

Re: Fantasy or Sci Fi

Cool. I always wanted to play a good Sci Fi game. Are there any good ones that are MMORPG like World of Warcraft. I don't care about Star Wars the New Republic one.

Re: Fantasy or Sci Fi

Those books sound interesting. I only read some cyberpunk manga. The Ghost in the Shell manga has good artwork, but the story drags out. I think the anime ones are better. Although a perfect future can be good, there will still be some conflicts like alien invaders, machines gone haywire, and scient...

Re: Fantasy or Sci Fi

Your welcome. Most new Sci Fi novels I heard on the bestseller list are dystopian novels. Besides Hunger Games, there is also Legend series and the delirium book series. They have romantic teen concepts too much like the Hunger Games trilogy, which made me think writers are trying to make the next H...

Re: Fantasy or Sci Fi

One of the bestselling sci fi books I found so far is the Hunger Games. Perhaps Sci Fi is climbing way back up now.

Re: Fantasy or Sci Fi

If you check out the bestselling list at Barnes and Nobles, and Amazon.com, you will know what books are hitting the market really well.

Fantasy or Sci Fi

I heard that fantasy is a bestseller right now. There aren't many science fiction novels and manga on the bestselling list. Basically because most characters in sci fi are cliche and the setting limits the readers' imagination. I do believe sci fi will become popular again soon, but we need writers ...

Re: Julianna

Your style almost looks simple, but it is very detailed and good in ink. Nice work.
