Comic Party (Komikku Pātī) is manga that was created out of a visual novel. A visual novel is a fiction game that is completely interactive and whose artwork is distinctly anime-style. The game usually follows along a story line that the player has to follow along with. There is generally only a small amount of game play, and the genre of games has been compared to an RPG (role playing game), but with less action. Comic Party is one of the few visual novels that has been turned into a manga and an anime series. The game focuses on interacting with a cast of girls, but the manga series is a bit different.


The Manga

The manga focuses on Kazuki, who wants to become a great doujinshi artist. Doujinshi is manga], or comic books, that are written by artists who publish outside of the mainstream publishing houses. Kazuki is determined to become the best. He pulls in his girlfriend, Mizuki, and is being trained by Yuu. The manga follows along, more focused on telling little stories than on telling one long story. The chapters are all written by actual doujinshi artists, which gives a surreal element to the manga, as it suddenly becomes a manga about a doujinshi artist that is written by doujinshi artists!
