Anime is popular, mangas are popular, and hentai is, well popular too. That integral part of Japanese culture has long made its way into the West and kids are crazy after manga stuff.

Face Your Manga tries to take advantage of the fact by providing its visitors a way to create Manga avatars that visitors can use in forums, social bookmarking and community websites.

Face Your Manga

The process reminds of the Mii creation on the Nintendo Wii. The user picks a gender for his avatar and can then customize various facial features like the hair, eyes, and nose. Nintendo Wii users should experience no difficulties creating the avatars, and everyone else won't run into a lot either.

It's pretty much about picking the right facial feature and color to go along with the avatar. Face, Eyes, Nose, Mouth, Ears, and Hairs are the six main parts of the face that can be changed. Most containing subcategories; Eyes are for instance further divided into Shape and Eyebrows.

Add clothes, stuff, and background to that and the opportunity to add makeup to the avatar. Want your avatar to wear a tie, a peace logo, tattoo, and piercing? No problem. The avatars are sent to an email address that has to be entered with some additional data. It's probably a way of collecting emails, and I would advise using an email account that does not receive private emails for that. It has to be able to receive attachments, so most disposable email services are out of the question.

You need to create an account before you can get started creating your Manga-self. The site operators have recently released an application for Apple's iOS operating system that offers similar functionality. A free and paid version is available for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

    The site is fun, but painfully slow. The results may be ok, but I think that having one drawn is a better option – you get a professional product that can be used in a wider range of ways.

    I tried it out (two times, first time server was overloaded).

    It’s cool in general but it’s impossible to create something that actually looks like you in real life – that would be way cooler. :) Maybe some lucky people actually do look similar to what you can create but not me. :)
