    Default Some people should just stick to their "strengths"...

    Okay, I'm sure you've all heard of Avril Lavigne.

    Ya know.. she's that fake punky singer with her best song being "Complicated" and her worse song being that cheezy new "Girlfriend" stuff.

    Anyway... she's starting to do...

    MANGA!

    wtf?!

    I've heard of singers entering the acting field and vise versa...

    but... entering the manga field?!

    EHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH?!

    ...She better draw well and have a good plot.

    Edit: This is from ANN site
    Both the manga series and the music videos deal with an introverted teenager, Hana, whose life is changed forever when she meets her hero Avril Lavigne and, through her, finds the courage to conquer her own personal demons.
    ...Plot fails.
    That Hana better be hot or else it's not gonna be sold, except maybe to the Avril fanboys. Bad plot + unhot/unsexy main character/characters = Fail

    I saw her name when I was looking through Tokyo Toshokan the other day and I was wondering why it was there.

    And this won't work. Not in 1 million years.

    If she adds sex, violence, and drugs into the manga plot, it could sell.

    Naturally she is not drawing it, its just her agency using her name to rake in money from all the 13 year old girls by cashing in on the "emerging pop culture phenomenon of manga". Its just standard bandwagon stuff, take the latest fad, slap a brand name or a famous person's face on it, make money from guliable trend obsessed teens. Unfortunately, its that kind of quick buck capitalism that kills them medium and turns it into just another flood the market throw away accessory that plagues our society today. Very soon western made manga and anime clones will be forced into the mainstream and our close nit community will be flooded by relentless idiots who read manga, not because they like it per se, but because its fashionable, the latest craze.

    And that's when the rabid merchandising begins.

    Naturally, just look at otaku culture in Japan, the diference being that things will be sold for fashion value rather than fan value.
