Check it out.
That's right, finally ViR has started.
ViR is a fantasy series that Cinos Hedgean and I have been planning for years. We're not sure how long we're gonna go with it. Could be years (which it most likely will).
The story of it's creation dates back to April 2003. Cinos came up to me and said he wanted to make a webcomic to replace Sonic Hai. All he gave me was Ami, a character he created, and a school. About an hour later, I thought up the crapfest of Ryuuko X. Ryuuko X took place in what we thought was a fictional city of Tokai (we were wrong when we bothered to look it up) dealing with a feud between two dojos. The stars were Ami Kyara, a video game fanatic and Kaoru Nyanya, a serious martial artist. It was more or less a ripoff of Ranma 1/2, which was a favorite of mine at the time.
Cursed with bad art and even more horrible writing, Ryuuko X was quickily abandoned. We attempted a ninja series which I think was called The Sealers. I don't even remember what the story was because we went nowhere with it.
Quickily afterward, we began what was to become ViR. It was shortly after I finally played Ocarina of Time, saw Slayers (which Cinos was telling me to watch) and The Return of the King. So I was in a state of being hit with multiple fantasy stories. We decided on starting a fantasy story almost 3 years ago.
There's an older comic we did of it, but that's been lost forever. Two animations were made for the project. The first is a flash film based off one of the horrible first drafts when it was called Seigi no Honoo (Fires of Justice). The second, a story of female empowerment done to appease Cinos' animation teacher. An attempt at a game in MMF was also made.
If you want to see the flash, that was created by Cinos to generally poke fun at all the holes in the script click here, be warned it features sickmen and a scary voice.
The reason why it's taken so long to release is that I've thought of so many possible storylines and thoroughly scrapped them quickly. Earlier this year, we finally became satisfied with the story we've made and started producing the comic with the name ViR (from a latin word meaning worthiness and hero), which is also the name of the world and it's meaning follows the central theme of the series.
I'd rather not reveal too much about the story since, well, I want alot of it to be a suprise. So with that, let ViR begin!
