Welcome to the group Anime-And-Manga~!

This is a place where you can find those who love anime and/or manga and art in that category. Anything related goes!

We accept every member who wants to join. All join requests are automatically approved. To submit art, it is not necessary for you to be a member of the group. However, please note that our Featured folder is restricted to members, and therefore to submit there you need to join.

Please follow group rules, as well as DeviantArt's own rules. If you break a rule, I will either let it slide, give you a warning, or ban you, depending on the rule.

Rules: These are the rules for this group. Please read and follow them. Bannable offenses are listed in its own section, as well as next to the related rule. They can be changed and added to at any time without any warning whatsoever.

General Rules:
• Treat other Deviants and the Admins with respect.
• Please do not advertise yourself in the comments.
• Don't fight in the group [comments]. If you feel the need to argue, please take it to the notes.
• No cursing in the comments or at anyone else. By this, it means no major curses such as the F-bomb.
• Follow dA's Terms of Service.
• If you find stolen artwork, please report it to me via a note.
• If you are banned from the group, then you can try to appeal and be allowed back in. This only applies to the marked offenses in the "Bannable Offenses" section, however.

Art Submission Rules:
• Art must be related to anime and/or manga. Anime-style games are fine as well.
• The art does not necessarily have to be a drawing. Fanfics and literature ARE allowed. These belong in Fanfics and Stories, respectively.
• Each member can only submit one (1) piece of artwork to the FEATURED folder per week. Each member can only submit five (5) pieces of artwork to each of the OTHER GALLERY folders per WEEK. The latter means that you can submit up to five (5) in EACH folder, not five total.
• Please submit to the right folders! Art submitted to the incorrect folder will be rejected. If you've accidentally sent it to the wrong folder, just resubmit it to the correct one.
• If you've used a reference, then please say so and give credit.
• NO TRACED OR STOLEN ART WHATSOEVER!!! We don't want art that you've stolen from another artist and taken credit for. --Bannable Offense--
• No horribly erotic or nude art is allowed. For males, the groin and behind area must be covered. For females, the breasts, groin, and behind area must be covered.

Featured Folder Submission Rules:
The submission process for this folder will be different from all of the others. There will be a limit of one submission per week. For a piece to be included in this folder, it must get 3 votes of acceptance from the Admins. Submission rules still apply. Judging will be done by the opinions of the Admins. There are also restrictions on what you can and cannot submit.

What will not be accepted:
• Lineart (like the ones in the Line Art folder)
• Coloured in lines/manga pages
• Comics/Manga pages
• Memes (Completed or blank)
• Bases (Used or created)
• Art dumps
• Demotivational posters

All works must be done yourself and completed. We will not be accepting any WIPs. It doesn't necessarily have to be in colour. If it isn't listed as a type of work that won't be accepted, then by all means submit it. OC's, Fanart, etc. Submissions to this folder are restricted to group members only.

Bannable Offenses:
• Being rude to other members and the Admins. Three warnings will be given. If you continue to disrespect others, then you will be banned from the group. --Appealable--
• If you are found to have submitted stolen artwork, then you will be banned AND blocked from the group.

Hello everyone!

This Journal is just an inquiry for events that you guys may or may not want to do at the end of the year.

So, firstly the Secret Santa. As you may know, we had one last year at the last minute since somebody suggested we should do it and we did through popular demand. I learned from that experience, and so we are doing things earlier this year. C:

If people want to do it, sign-ups will take place throughout the month of October (or maybe even the end of September). The match-ups will be randomized at the beginning of November and notes sent out around then as well. That will leave almost 2 months for completing the gift. Though signing up means commitment, I will probably update the sign-up Journal allowing for people to drop out before the match-ups are made because I did have people dropping out after I sent them the note as to who their giftee is.

How many of you would be interested in participating in a Secret Santa this year?

Secondly, the group's 5th anniversary is coming up in December. Would you guys want to see an event to commemorate it, and if so, what kind of event?
It does come very close to the Secret Santa date, about a week or so before the gifts need to be finished and posted, I'll say that. I don't know if you'll want that, haha.

Obviously we don't have to do both of them, or either one of them. If demand is popular, then it will be held.

-- SakamotoNadeshiko, Founder

EDIT: For those of you who do not know what a Secret Santa is, it's an anonymous gift exchange event. Everyone will have someone to give to, and someone they get a gift from. Whoever is your Santa is a secret until gifts are given on December 24th, so your present will also be a little secret. C:

I've been thinking about participating myself, but I don't know how you guys will feel if I do that since I'm the one who does the organizing. Basically I'm the one who knows all the match-ups and am also the one who hounds you if you don't give your gift by the cut-off date. I know it's weird I'm asking your permission to take part, but it's because of the fact that I organize the event that I want to know if you're okay with me joining in.

But uh, yeah, would you guys mind if I participated in ours? Or would you prefer that I don't and join another group's SS instead?
I don't know how many of you have noticed, but you probably can't submit to the group right now (( 6:48 PM EST/GMT-4.00 )). ;; Yeah, my fault entirely. I tried changing a setting and it ended up resetting all of the submission settings for the group. |l|OTL

Give me about an hour to put everything back in place. Sorry for the inconvenience you guys. ;; I'll update this once they're back open.

The submission settings are alright now, so you guys should be able to submit again.

A new Adoptables folder is also now open. We've been getting tons of those lately so might as well bring it back. The first one lasted only a couple of weeks or less before I removed it. If you have an adoptable inside another folder already, don't worry. I'll try to move as many as I can find over once I finish with the settings.

Hello! ^^
I'm just curious of why my submission of "Haruka Nanase" (realistic) was declined. I'm not upset or anything (I know the drawing isn't that great), I was just curious.

Thank you!
