'Seven Hearts' Doujinshi Warms Hearts

The Mega Man fanbase is known for its immense creativity; an undying devotion to pay homage to the Blue Bomber's world through music, video and art. In Japan and China however, there lies a fourth medium for Rockman fans to explore, a medium that remains largely untapped in most cultures: the "doujinshi", self created comics depicting everything from tales of forbidden shipping to original stories of parody.

Enter "Seven Hearts: Little Bird, Little Kids", an adorable Rockman doujinsh written and illustrated by the ever talented MRi. The premise is simple and delightful: Axl and Cinnamon attempt to nurse an injured bird back to health while avoiding suspicion from X and crew ( apparently, animals of any sort are not allowed onto resistance premises). In time, "little white" is once again able to fly, forcing Axl and Cinnamon to bid it heartwarming farewell.

Okay, so it's a little cliched but it's still quite charming with some great art to boot! Check out the comic here and a complete page by page translation here.

  3. Very nice. I also think this should be published. As cliched as it is, it was worth the read.
    sidenote: While reading the last two pages, play the theme song from Air in your head for added effect.

  7. Actually, that comic is in Chinese... not Japanese. I don't know if the original is in Japanese or not, but the linked version is most definitely Chinese.

    Just an FYI. Love your blog. <3

  11. That most definitely is not Japanese. It's in all Kanji. It's Chinese, but it's a great manga. Hm, I wonder if the original was Japanese or Chinese.

  12. It's definitely Chinese, as the Japanese text and sound effects used in the manga itself has some mistakes in it...although, it can easily be forgiven, since it is an extremely well done piece of work.
