Kind of old news but still inspiring nonetheless. Too bad this is probably never going to head stateside, if the crickets I got from Seven Seas when I asked them about it on their ask.fm are any indication.

The artstyle is surprisingly decent, seems like it would fit in the Shounen category.

Very cool. The artwork itself looks very like standard manga-character-fair coming out of Japan regularly. The plot sounds interesting too.

Hrm...if this got a North American release would the English translation come straight from the French version or the Japanese version? *thinks of all the possible well-that's-not-quite-right-oops translation possibilities* lol

Good news. I hope it has a good plot and has success in Japan, so foreign otakus will stop saying gaijins can't make manga.

The shading makes me think of Waqfu, another animesque French work. I wonder if that's the overall national style there. The linework, on the other hand, is totally different.

I hope Radiant is good though. But it looks promising.

Oh man, that looks basically like a more refined version of One Piece. Absolutely beautiful coloring.

That guy actually reminds me of Rurouni Kenshin's Yahiko. Now, to me, a true way that you could this series success is if they make an anime of. Not some web shorts. I am talking about the full 20-something minute length. It could be just a few episodes.

Any scanlations of the manga? Would like to read this manga from outside Japan. Freezing also was published in Korea first before it made it to Japan and it's a smash hit.
