Dramacon Ultimate Edition Manga by Svetlana Chmakova

I think part of me is blinded due to familiarity and it won’t strike such a powerful chord with anyone else who’s not been in the Anime cons or cons ove I never expected to like so much something both so simple and american-made.

When it is ultimwte, it is completely unnecessary and slightly jarring. But it is fun, and I do recommend it, especially if you like romance or have ever been to an anime convention. Dec 13, Lady Entropy rated it it was amazing.

October 10, drmacon. Also, it shows how Chmakova’s artistic style and storytelling have matured along with the characters. It’s a very cute and funny story but it doesn’t skimp on the bad and ugly of the anime con world as well as some of the other things the characters are facing in their lives.


BookLoons Reviews – Dramacon Ultimate Edition by Svetlana Chmakova

Dtamacon art was very interesting, but actually nicely done. Archived from the dramaacon on 22 September The hardcover complete collection features previously unpublished chibi comics, a new cover, creator interview, early story concepts, and more! I love re-reading this. Matt always wears sunglasses to conceal the fact that his eye is missing. Boyfriend drama Volume 2: Christie is floundering in this new land of Yatta Con and then she runs into Matt.

Lists with This Book.

They way I like it in an comic book or a manga. Chmakova, who’s working on a whole host of Yen Press series right now, manages to convey some of the wonder and crazy that is an anime convention–as well as some of the pitfalls that can occur. Anyway, normally I don’t go for relationship drama stuff but this series did it right. Christie spends her last day with Matt, his sister Sandra, and Greta, a friend of theirs.

It has the dorkiest premise on the face of the planet: He is a rough, sarcastic young man roughly two years older than Christie who feels an instant connection to her.

I only read this on a recommendation, and I was not disappointed. I found myself rooting for Christie every step of the way, from when she first stepped into the convention all nerves and excitement at her first con up until the very end as a seasoned convention-goer, and overall having grown up a bit.

Or all the time, in my case. I really like Svetlana’s drawing style, so I’ve followed her work ever since.

Christie endures Derek ignoring her along with the culture shock of men in schoolgirl uniforms.


The plot gripped me from the beginning and I stayed up way past my bed time just to figure out what would happen next. This is just something one should be aware of.

It works so wonderfully well. I actually was editkon with this series, I guess being north american manga I had somewhat low expectations. Happy that I borrowed this one for my daughter from the library, as I didn’t realize there was a little bit extra added to the story post convention.

Jun 06, Bethany rated it really liked it Shelves: Highly recommended from me. Apr 09, Amber rated it really liked it Shelves: Mar 31, Whatchyareading added it Shelves: It is mainly to Christie he shows a different side of him and though they fight like anything, they also work well together.

Maybe this story was just going in too many directions, but things didn’t truly feel like they came to a close. But rereading dramaon now, I picked up on a lot of references. Though born in Russia, she immigrated to Canada, where she graduated from the Sheridan College Classical Animation program, in I rather enjoyed his quick, witty, sarcastic remarks: Yeah, yeah, yeah I know the artist isn’t Asian so it isn’t “technically” manga.
