Pratfalls of the Shonen Fighting Genre
As some of you may or may not know (as I have mentioned this many times in the forum) I am working on a webcomic that is a parody of the Shonen Fighting genre and I am also trying to make it one of the best pieces Shonen Fighting on the internet. What I am asking from you guys is the flaws of this particular genre and ways to fix them. I already have:
- Super long battles lasting at least a volume of manga or 5 episodes of the show (I will have only epic battles, war battles not fights, last more than one chapter)
- Storyline that could continue indefinitely (I will write the story and that will be what happens with only minor alterations and maybe some extra character development)
- Characters yelling out names of attacks and giving away what will happen (there will be named attacks, but martial arts will provide a much larger role than the magics, names will not be yelled out but will show up in the panel. This is really only for differentiating moves.)
Can you guys think of anything else? You can also ask me about characters and story if you wish if it helps.
