Hello everyone!

We have some amazing news!

First of all we would like to inform you that our city, Thessaloniki has been voted as the European Youth Capital for 2014. You can see this link for more information.

The Municipality and the Cultural Section of Thessaloniki have chosen our team to make a manga one-shot for the European Youth Capital, where we will portray the city. The main characters of this one-shot will be the characters of RuN and some of the characters of Mythos.

This one-shot will be published by the Municipality of Thessaloniki and it will be printed as a tankōbon, which will be shared free of charge in all the events regarding Thessaloniki European Youth Capital.

In order to promote manga culture in Greece the Municipality of Thessaloniki and the Japanese Embassy of Greece organized with us a two day event, called "RuN Thessaloniki & Japanese Anime Marathon Day" on 21st and 22nd September.

In 21st September the attendants could enjoy our artist :iconsmolb: live sketching and choreographies of Naruto and RuN from the Parkour Academy in Thessaloniki. There were also an Origami workshop, a cosplay workshop, two shops with Anime and Manga collectibles, and a DJ who played J Music all day long. It was a fantastic experience. You can check the videos below.


At the same day our team gave a speech in the Central Hall of the Municipality of Thessaloniki, about the manga culture, the world wide manga industry and the independent scene of manga and comics. In our lecture, the Mayor of Thessaloniki, Mr Boutaris, made an introduction as Sanji from One Piece. You can check the video below and watch our Mayor as Sanji and our lecture (the video is in Greek)


In 22nd of September the attendants could watch in cinemas the six following Anime Films provided by the Japan Foundation:
- Chibi Maruko-Chan
- Galaxy Express 999
- The Prince of the Sun: Hols' Great Adventure
- The Girl who Leapt Through Time
- Frantz Kafka's A Country Doctor
- Captain Harlock in Arcadia

It was an amazing experience for us to participate in the organization of such an event in our country. We also feel really honoured to make a manga for the European Youth Capital! We hope everyone will enjoy it!

Mangatellers are the Hellenic duo Voutsidis Rafail and Kariofillis Chris Hatzopoulos.

Our hobby is to write screenplays for manga and comics in general. Our dream is to become professional screenplay writers for manga, also known in Japanese as Gensaku-sha. We know each other from our childhood years. The passion of reading manga and researching comic history in all kinds of genres was born in our hearts at the same time.

We started making our first manga stories, based on classic screenplay format in 2008. Until now we have create two long scale stories and many small scale stories (31-45 pages), aka "one shots". Our first story is " R.u.N." We have already finished three volumes, but the story continues in our forth ongoing arc. The second story is "Mythos". For the time being Mythos is an one volume story, expanded in 50 chapters. We hope we will have the chance to continue the story in the second upcoming volume. The collection of the screenplays of our one shot stories cover a variety of fields, shonen, seinen, sci-fi, sports and lots of more.

We are going to participate in different competitions for new comer manga artists with some of these one shots. Our dream and goal is to work with Japanese manga public houses with our projects and have a chance to release them to the country which bears this form of art.
