Choose A Flavor
Iím willing to go in three different directions where it concerns the inspiration for the story. I donít have a preference myself as I love Ďem all equally so Iíll swing whichever way my writing partner prefers.
Flavor 1: Inspired by American superhero and science fiction genres. Think Marvel or DC verse, X-Men, Watchmen, Heroes (tv series). The setting would take place in a western location like the USA, Canada, or UK.
Flavor 2: Inspired by Japanese anime, specifically the mahou shoujo (magical girls) genre but obviously weíd be writing magical boys instead. Think Sailor Moon, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, or Tiger & Bunny. The setting would take place in Japan.
Flavor 3: Mashup of the above two. Iíd be pleased as peaches to write a Japanese magical boy opposite of an American style superhero or villain.
