About

HERE WE COME!
HERE WE COME!

Hey gang, it's GM! Some of you know me as Sahn, Fallen Angel, etc, but we'll stick with GM!

THE BEGINNING
When I was a kid, about 9 years old, I made my first connection with a Dragon Ball volume. As I read it, and being mindblown by it, I knew from this moment what I wanted to do in the future. I wanted to do a manga of my own. Hell, I even wanted to be published by Shonen-Jump! Talk about being ambitious!

I think it would have been as such at Shonen Jump.

In between, until 16, I wrote loads of fanfictions. I even mixed characters of Dragon Ball, Digimon, Pokémon, and even Megaman in the mix. (Yeah, I had a crazy imagination.) In high, I met Hagane and we became great friends due to our love of manga and also our aspirations towards creating a mangas. And we've been on it since then. It was at that era that HEART OF WILDFIRE was as she had given the first breath of life by drawing the characters. 

I only gave the ideas, but she did the heavy lifting. Yes Hagane, you did! Don't be so modest!

Despite my huge desire to work at Shonen Jump, the same magazine that published my all-time favorite manga Dragonball, I realized I was much more immature than I thought. Piercing through this business was hard and harsh, and even more difficult for non-Japanese one as myself. 

They were times I almost gave up. But I thought to myself, was it really important to reach Shonen Jump. And as stupid as it was, I simply said, "no." Just like that. It was as if I needed that simple answer to tear that wall down.

And with the rise of independent platform that came years later, I realized my dream could come true. At last.

What's HEART OF WILDFIRE's story about?

It tells the story of three brothers, Sahn, Tairo and Ryo Lamarey...

Sahn, Ryo and Tairo, the Lamarey brothers

aspiring to become living legends like the late hero Senthann Kameyata...

Who passed away by defeated the Shadolus, queen of calimities and goddess of chaos.

But the brothers' plan suddenly takes a fateful turn when they stumble on a medallion shaped as a flame: a Heart of Wildfire.

Learning the mysterious artifact is seeked by the armies of the Sirken Cross, the forces formely leaded by Shadolus, the brotherly trio are engaged on a mission to find the remaining medallions before these hellish forces do and plunge Gaelice into chaos by the hands of their new leader, the one called the "General."

What better way to become a living legend than saving the world?


I decided to found our small group of people that gathered around me to make this wonderful story a reality:

THE RED RONINS.
Hagane:
Character designer, co-writer and cat lover!
GM (me): Author, writer & creator of the series (also the only dude to can't draw at all...)
Memer: Page artist & secretly a Transformer (What? I'm almost sure he is!)
Lumaga: Colorist & Super Wizard (Colors like that are magical! Deal with it!)

With the team of these wonderful friends I have around me, I believe the road will be long, but it will be worth it through this great adventure. If it wasn't for them, I would have never made it to this point. 

(Hagane, Lumaga, Memer, thank you so much!)

AFTER FUNDING REACHED...Sending the countless rewards would be one of my main priorities. But the one one would be quite interesting. The script of HEART OF WILDFIRE's first chapter/issue is completed. All it needs is to be made, then published. 

The pages would be drawn and made in the process. Considering the artist would be busy as well on them, along onto other projects. I'd estimate an amount 5 to 6 months to be completed, for April 2016. Less if we're lucky.

After that...

THE OFFICIAL LAUNCH OF THE FIRST CHAPTER (70-page) WOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR SALE! (except for those who got it in two of the rewards, it will be free!) With the profits reinvested into the project to supply our finances to keep on working on this beloved project.

Our goal is giving HEART OF WILDFIRE a good kick start, to finally get it out there. And I believe with your support, this dream will finally come true.

Risks and challenges

Making such a project is not a one-man task. Luckily, I have not only a good team around me, but great friends as well.

Challenges will always be on our way, and we're ready to face them on. No matter the problems and setbacks we'll have. Know this: we'll let you know everything along the way through our social network addresses and our continuous updates. (Which is why I strongly recommend to follow us on Twitter and Facebook.) And we're positive that we'll get the best of support from you guys.

More than that, this project will come in fruition. You're asking yourselves how can we be so confident.

If you've seen the video already, then you must know by now that I've been on this project since I was high school. In other words, 15 years ago.

Considering I'm still on it, this time with great support friends and teammates, it's safe to say that I'm going to make this happen. ;-)
