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 everybody! This is the sign-ups for the 2014 that you've been waiting for! C: The feedback from inquiry was "Let's do this SS!" and not so much anniversary (which we're not celebrating). The deadline is set to be October 29, 2014, at 8.00PM (EST/GMT-4:00).

If you don't know what a Secret Santa is, it's a large anonymous gift exchange. Everyone will have a Santa that will give them a gift, and they will also be the Santa to another person.

How to Participate:
• Create a Wishlist of what you want from your Santa in a Journal Entry so your Santa can get an idea of what you'd like. That said, references are always lovely. Please try to be flexible in order to account for the various strengths of people.
• Comment down below with a link to your wishlist
• Wait for me to reply to it and watch for your name to appear on the participants list in a separate Journal entry that I will link here:

If I don't reply in three days and your name doesn't appear, then comment again stating so and that you commented before. Should the participants list get long, use CTRL+F (I don't know the Mac command for this since I don't have one) to search for your name.


Don't post your gift until December 24th.
If you're going to be away for the holidays and won't have Internet access, just tell me, yeah? If you finish eary just hold onto the gift until this date.

Label your gifts with [Anime-And-Manga SS] or something along the lines with the group's name in it.
It's just to mark it as a gift part of our Secret Santa. It'll make the submission to the Secret Santa 2014 folder much easier when the time comes.

Submit your gifts to the Secret Santa 2014 folder when gifts are posted.
It won't open until the afternoon on December 24th, but when that date arrives feel free to post your gift. This folder is only for those participating in this group's Secret Santa, so if you have an SS git gtom another's, do not submit it here.

Don't be the jerk that neglects the gift-giving portion.
Obviously there are extenuating circumstances that may come up between now and the late date in January, and it's fine if you can't get your gift up because of something out of your control. But if you decide that you'll just sit back and let your giftee go giftless, you will no longer be able to participate in this group's gift exchange type events in the future. "I forgot" and "I procrastinated" are not extenuating circumstances that excuses you from not giving your gift.

Do not complain about the gift you received.
Your Santa took their time and effort and tried their utmost best to give you something you wanted. If you didn't like it for whatever reason, keep it to yourself.

Group submission rules still apply.
Sorry, the rules regarding exposed private areas will not be lifted for this event, so please refrain from asking for this. It's fine if it's for some other Secret Santa, just not this one.

Want to Volunteer?
Just let me know and I'll add you to the volunteer list here. Volunteers are those who give a gift to those who end up giftless because their Santa didn't give them their gift.

The match-ups this year will be decided with a name randomizer because I'm participating myself. First I will put the name list into the randomizer, and I will give that new list to an outside party to randomize again. It'll get sent back to me and that will create this year's match-ups for the Secret Santa. I will go through and make sure that no one is paired with themselves because that obviously beats the purpose of the event. In the case that there is a person matched with themselves, they will be switched around with the recipient name under them.

There are 9 people who can't participate at all, and another 2 just for this year because their gift was late. I still have all the info from last year's so I know who they are. If you're one of these 11 people, then I will tell you that you can't take part if you try to sign up.

Please don't be discouraged from taking part if you think your art "sucks" (which it doesn't). This even is to have fun and give to others.
Do spread the word, as it is open to all! The more the merrier, so everyone is welcome to participate!

The deadline is October 29, 2014 at 8.00PM (EST/GMT-:400).

This is the participant list for the 2014 Secret Santa event. As people sign up, I will add their names here. Volunteers will also be listed here. This is not the place to sign up. If you want to sign up, please do so here:

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.

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?

EDIT II: I will try to open sign-ups tomorrow, 9.26.14 sometime in the evening or so. If not tomorrow, then Saturday.
