Submissions are closed! Check the voting thread here to vote for your favourites!



This year, we're taking our very first MALentine event (from 2014) and recreating it to see what new, fun submissions our community can come up with!

Everyone knows those scanlator group pages where they take a manga scan and change all the text bubbles to mean something completely different than the original text?
(See to the right, for an example!)

You are tasked with creating a MALentine Story out of either:
Anime Screenshots or
Manga Pages

Each MALentine Story must:
Have some kind of Valentine's Day themed plot! Sappy, romantic, bitter...
Be PG-13.
Be original!
You need to make your own story, you can't just take the same story where the image(s) come from.
The story can use the series' characters, original characters, or relate to current MAL happenings.
Be nice. No slander.
If you include MAL users as your characters, you should be 250% sure that your story won't offend.
Not be a novel. Try to keep it short since voters will read many!

Need some inspiration?
2014 Winners
Check out some of our FREE MANGA!


How to Submit?
Send Cupid-nyan a PM with:
Your story's title. To help us refer to them.
Link(s) to your image story! Obviously.
Link(s) to the original source images. This is so we can see what you changed.
Link(s) to the MAL database entry(s) of the source(s). So we can source it back to the creators.
Creator(s) of the story. Group submissions are welcome!

Once we collect all of the entries, we will create a voting thread where the community can view all of the submitted stories and can vote on their favourite one!

Submission Deadline
Friday, Feb 14th, 23:59 PST

You must send in your story before this date!

Voting Thread Posted
Saturday, Feb 15th

Once the thread is posted, you can start voting!


For image editing, you can use a program like MS Paint, GIMP (free), or Photoshop.
Then upload your finished image(s) to a site like Imgur (no acct needed) and send!

If you need any help with your submission, please post in this thread.

Happy MALentine writing~

ReLIFE is all 3 of those. Tsuki Ga Kirei is great too, but it's a little more on the drama side than SoL.

And can I use multiple manga for one story?

Since anime screenshots aren't like manga where you have multiple panels on one page, does it mean that there is a limit to how much screenshots I can use. I just don't want to seem like I am adding an excessive amount of pictures because of choosing anime instead of manga

Actually I already watched Relife. But I really haven't heard of tsuki Ga Kirei before, so thank you for the suggestion :)

No limit, but remember users will be reading many stories when voting.

No one ever asked that before but... sure, go for it.

Isn't it a good thing we've got Free Manga? (:
You can also subtitle anime screenshots.

I saw it in the inbox, but didn't read it. If there is an issue with your submission, we'll msg you back.

Yes, any font you like! Anime Ace 2.0 used to be a commonly used one.

Aw A Gore Valentine's Story would be interesting though but it sounds like that would be ruled out by the guidelines. It would be unique and I don't mean the Yandere type or the cheating stuff. You could call it an Anti Valentine's concept
