Manga Giveaway: Anonymous Noise Giveaway

Not only is it the last Wednesday of May, it’s the last day of May, so it is once again time for a giveaway at Experiments in Manga! For this month’s giveaway you will all have the opportunity to win the first volume of Ryoko Fukuyama’s manga series Anonymous Noise as published in English by Viz Media’s Shojo Beat imprint. And as usual, the giveaway is open worldwide!

Anonymous Noise, Volume 1

As a musician, I have a particular affinity for manga which incorporates music in some way, whether it’s tangentially or as a primary theme. So when Anonymous Noise was licensed, it immediately caught my attention. The series’ lead loves to sing and many of the other characters introduced are musically inclined as well. As I was reading the first volume of Anonymous Noise, it occurred to me that there were a fair number of other manga that I could think of which aren’t music manga per se but which do include characters with notable singing voices. (For example, Tomoyo Daidouji from Cardcaptor Sakura or Yuzuki Seo from Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun.) And for some reason, that realization made me really happy.

So, you may be wondering, how can you a copy of the Anonymous Noise, Volume 1?

1) In the comments below, tell me about your favorite singer or vocalist from a manga. (Don’t have a favorite or haven’t come across any? Simply mention that instead.)
2) If you’re on Twitter, you can earn a bonus entry by tweeting, or retweeting, about the contest. Make sure to include a link to this post and @PhoenixTerran (that’s me).

It’s as simple as that. Giveaway participants have one week to submit comments and can earn up to two entries. Comments can also be sent directly via email to phoenixterran(at)gmail(dot)com if needed or preferred. I will then post those entries here in your name. The giveaway winner will be randomly selected and announced on June 7, 2017. Best of luck to you all!

VERY IMPORTANT: Include some way that I can contact you. This can be an e-mail address in the comment form, a link to your website, Twitter username, or whatever. If I can’t figure out how to get a hold of you and you win, I’ll just draw another name.

    Sadly, I can’t think of anything. However, I enjoy music and love manga/anime, so manga with music doesn’t sound bad to me.

  10. Candy Ha says

    I have not read many manga with singers but my favourite singer has to be Sakuya Ookouchi from Kaikan Phrase. He’s cool and I like him.


  11. I’m not sure about “favourite”, but one that hasn’t been mentioned yet is Maria from A Devil and Her Love Song. Her singing abilities play an important role because they’re one of the few ways she can communicate openly with people without being misunderstood. There’s a scene I recall liking in the first volume where a group of girls invite her to karaoke to with the intent to bully her, but she sings so earnestly they’re ashamed of themselves for a moment. It’s a pity the English translation felt so off and the series fell apart halfway through; I really enjoyed those earlier volumes.
