Win a Chance to Appear in the Crayon Shin-chan Manga
posted on by Egan Loo
Japanese publisher Futabasha is offering a chance for one lucky reader to appear in the New Crayon Shin-chan manga. The winner (and his or her family and friends) will not only appear in the manga in Monthly Manga Town magazine, but also in the eventual compiled book volume.
To enter the drawing, readers have to cut out the entry form from the wraparound jacket band on the manga's first two volumes. (The campaign marks the release of the second volume on Friday.) Entrants must send the form with a promotional self-introduction, their written thoughts on the manga, and a photo (of you and everyone else you want to join you in the manga) to Futabasha by August 31.
The actual cameo will appear in the magazine's December issue on November 5.
Monthly Manga Town began running Shin Crayon Shin-chan (New Crayon Shin-chan) as a sequel to the original manga in 1990. The manga's original creator Yoshito Usui passed away in 2009, but UY Studio, the team of assistants who had been creating the manga with Usui for many years, resumed the series one year later.
CMX Manga released part of the original Crayon Shin-chan manga in English in North America. Funimation adapted the television anime into dubbed English, and America's Adult Swim network used to run episodes every Sunday morning.
