Alright, for those of you otaku fans who just happen to have an affinity for the cultural phenomenon that is Dance Dance Revolution, boy do I have a treat for you. Here’s the general concept:
Sorry about the pic, but bear with me here and click the damn link!
The 10K Commotionis a Dance Dance Revolution™ Tournament held in Honolulu, Hawaii. Sponsored by the creators of the original game, this promises to be the biggest tournament ever in the USA.
Thousands of players will register and hundreds will win prizes ranging from cash & in-store prizes, modeling contracts and music video agent consultations, to endorsement agreements with clothing and merchandise sponsors and prizes from local sponsors.
The ultimate prize: $10,000 USD and the contract to model and motion capture for the yet unreleased DDR10K Mix.
Each team of 5 players will compete for top scores in Maniac and Trickster Divisions — The most athletic, charismatic, and stellar-scoring team will rise to the top and be immortalized as the newest DDR All-Stars in the International Version of DDR10K. But over the week long competition, exactly who is the top team may not be so clear.
The webcomic is centered around two rivaling teams: Team Psycloneand the Platinum Mark. I’ve really enjoyed the doujin, despite it’s pace on updates. Though, looking through the strips, you can see how much work Yukon Makoto has put into it! It’s truly worth the wait! – the characters are charismatic and believable, and you go through some pretty complex times with them. I love the unique coloring style, and I love the way Makoto censors her characters in here. She really does know how to set the mood for a scene with her use of watercolors. If you really what you see you should check out her sketchbook. She’s got a couple of great fan comics up as well. So go on ahead, check it out – what’ve you got to lose?
