The French unite against mangaka Seguchi Shinobu to protect a fan’s work | Spaghetti code

One of the social networks where you can have a really weird time is X, because it doesn’t matter when you read this, there are always fights between users or good gossip to learn about. Today’s story features several users from France, and the manga page is colored by fan and mangaka Seguchi Shinobu.

It all starts with French user X, Atsukyoo, who uploaded the Prisoner Riku manga panel and tagged the manga’s author, Seguchi Shinobu. The answer that a native of France will receive will be negative.

In his response to X, Seguchi demanded that the post be removed because it could be confused with the mangaka’s original work. Something completely normal, since scanning work is illegal in Japan and the actions of a French user could be misinterpreted as theft.

However, Seguchi Shinobu also gave Atsukyo a bad review, noting that “the coloring has neither wit nor meaning.” To which the fan replied that his coloring was made out of admiration for the author’s work.

The Frenchman’s words did not change Seguchi’s opinion, who continued to disparage his work, causing the French community to unite and harass the mangaka through memes.

The author would later take advantage of his 15 minutes of fame in X and announce on his account that he would be working on a new work, but this did not stop the French community from continuing their attacks.

Fortunately, the outcome of this story is pleasant, as on April 10, Seguchi Shinobu went public with his reconciliation with Atsukyo, where he revealed that he had given him full feedback on his coloring and would make a number of changes to his work policies. mostly with Prisoner Riku.

Among the new conditions, the mangaka explained that he would allow Prisoner Riku’s pages to be colored as long as they were not published without his own permission. In this sense, the Japanese will offer professional feedback on works that he does not like, just as he did in the process of apologizing to Atsukyo.

We’ve all had a fight on social media at one time or another, but few of us can say that it got us talking to one of our favorite manga artists. Of course, we should also take care of ourselves in these discussions, as some community of fans will always be on guard with an endless arsenal of memes at their disposal.
