AsSalaamualaykum everyone. All the submissions were awesome and it made us very happy to see Muslim Manga’s characters drawn by all of you. So many awesome drawings. But even though it was hard to do, we had to pick some to be the winners. And here we have the winners: congratulations to them. The winners should see their prizes soon. If a person other than Muslim Manga has promised a prize, then that prize will be given by them and not by Muslim Manga.
– first place:
I was originally going to give a 24 hour extension for any last minute submissions, but I’m going to be busy until next week anyway, so I won’t be able to do anything related to this contest anyway, so now you have a 1 week extension…
A New Challenger is Approaching …
So…………. Everyone remember Sura from the last contest, right? Sura was introduced here: muslim-manga.deviantart.com/jo…
Good. This time, we have a new character to add:
Back story: (kind of long, but maybe you’ll enjoy reading it)
So, the other day, Aya and Sura were going to school, but Aya decided to go to a used video game shop near her school, since she had plenty of time. Sura decided to go ahead and go to school so he can study a little more. Aya was just browsing the shop to see if there was any games that she didn’t already have. In the end, she didn’t find any games, but when she was looking in the Nintendo section, there was a stuffed lion toy sitting there, next to a used Game Cube. Aya suddenly fell in love with that toy and decided she had to buy it. It was just soo cute, she couldn’t resit. The salesman at the shop didn’t even remember having such a toy, but he went ahead and charged 200 yen for it (about 2 dollars).
Aya went ahead to school, super excited because of her new toy. She decided that his name was going to be “Poji” and that he was going to be a permanent member of the Muslim Manga club at school. But Poji’s story hasn’t ended just yet. No, this is far from the end.
Aya left Poji in the clubroom while she went outside for a moment to put up some advertisements for the club, so Poji thought he could relax and stop acting like he was a stuffed animal.
“Finally”, Poji said in a really deep voice. “I thought that girl would never leave me alone.”
He started to stretch and move around and that is when Sura came inside the room. Poji was in shock and his secret had been discovered and Sura couldn’t believe his eyes. Sura quickly went and look to see if there was any batteries in Poji. But, no. There was no batteries.
Sura quickly went to Aya and asked,”What is this?”, pointing to Poji. But Poji had reverted to being a non animate stuffed toy again.
Aya said. “Oh, that is out newest member, Poji.”
“Yeah, Poji. I bought him at the Yamada Video Game Shop.”
“Umm Sis, I think this thing is alive.”
Aya, wasn’t surprised. ” Of course he is. Aren’t you, Poji-chan?”, hugging Poji tightly. “I don’t care what those others girls say about you. I know that you’re alive.”
Sura realized that Aya was just in her fantasy world and didn’t realize he was actually alive. “Sis, I’m serious. I mean, he’s really really alive. I’m not talking about anime real. I’m talking about real-life real.”
“No, you don’t!”
Sura grabbed Poji and started shaking him around. “Talk. I know you can. Talk.” But it was no use. Poji just wouldn’t talk. Sura continued to try to use different ways to get him to talk, but it was all in vain.
Eventually Sura calmed down and went back to the room to study. He put Poji on the desk next to him and opened his book for math class.
Sura said to himself, ” I must be tired. All the studying must be getting to my brain.” Sura started to stair at Poji again, and just at that moment Poji blinked.
Sura got excited again. “You are a live. I knew it”.
Poji screamed “ouch! my eyes!.” Angrily, Poji continued to shout “You got something in my eyes while you were shaking me around. Come on, what were you thinking? Ouch Bro. Ouch.”. Then suddenly Poji called down “look kid, I’m a lion. You can’t treat me like that. I’ll eat your head off the next time you do that. Also, keep me away from that girl. She’s crazy. She was putting dresses on me. I’m a man. I don’t do dresses. Also, No one should no about me being alive. No one. You already found out, so it can’t be helped, but you must prevent anyone else from finding out. You understand boy?”
Sura had a puzzled expression on his face. “Oh..kay… So, in exchange, what will you do for me?”
Poji, “How about ‘I won’t eat you’ in exchange”?
Sura, “Wow you’re so violent. Fine. Fine. I won’t tell anyone. Just let me get back to studying. No that I can, after seeing such a weird thing today.”
And so, the adventures of Poji began as a member of the Muslim Manga Club!
About the Contest
Draw Poji together with Sura and or Aya. He hangs out with Sura mainly, but he will be with Aya too sometimes. Sura knows he’s alive. Aya doesn’t Aya just pretends that he is alive. Don’t forget, Poji has a beard and a tale with a fluffy hairy thingi on the end of it. If you don’t draw that, especially his beard (oh no.. don’t forget the beard), he will be very upset.
