Are you ready for The Fuccons
? We can certainly help you get ready, since ADV Films
and Anime News Network
are giving away 50
copies of the first special introductory DVD, which hits stores on December 20th! All you have to do is show us your funny bone in what we like to call, "Top The Fuccons
."Here's the basics:
Use your action figures, gashapon, Barbies, whatever, and make a 4-10 panel comic strip. That's it. You can make it about anything
you want, as long as you make us laugh. But, keep it PG-13, and try not to use any foul language.
We'll look at all the entries and pick our 50 favorites. All the entries will be posted online, so if you have a nickname or handle you want to go by, let us know. All pictures must be JPG, GIF, BMP, or PNG. Still images only, so no animated GIFs. Contest entries are due by 11:59PM EST (GMT -5:00) on December 20. No exceptions!
Please send all entries to Fuccons
[at]animenewsnetwork[dot]com, along with your full name and primary email address. Please attach your entries to the email. You can enter as many times as you want, but you can only win once. The contest is open to everyone, but prizes will only be shipped to the United States and Canada.
Need some inspiration? Get it from The Fuccons
! The series was broadcasted as part of a nighttime Japanese variety show called Vermillion Pleasure Night. It stars a mannequins and focuses on the Fuccon family, displaced Americans who are getting a feel for Japan for the first time. Wildly popular in Japan, the show has even inspired Fuccon-theme restaurants. Think the episodes are mildly creepy? Imagine them leering at you when you're trying to eat a burger.
Still curious? Check out the 24th episode here!
