Thus begins the Wild West Show!

Fifth one-shot down. Used a lot of 19th-century America references to design this manga - Winchester rifles, prairie dresses, the works. The result is a more believable manga than the previous one... so my teacher says, so he was able to enjoy this manga as a reader more than the last.

Only problem... I absolutely hated drawing it. And people sensed it when reading it.

Shown to: [Shonen Gahosha] Young King OURS
GRILLED FOR:
1) For the target audience for Young King OURS, the content of this manga's too juvenile. It would be more fitting to show this to either a middle-school shonen manga editor, or a kids' manga editor.
2) Very hurried or throwaway art, as if the artist didn't care to really render the rifles cool-looking, or to make the background really 1800s' America-y.
3) Some editorial misses (at the time), like missing text in some speech bubbles, no page numbers at the bottom, etc. (Once again, shows artist didn't care for the work.)
4) Editors can tell... the artist didn't enjoy drawing this manga. No energy, no pep, no conviction. It was just a story.

PRAISED FOR:
1) Foreign-ness. Once again, maximizing my capital as someone born overseas.
