2nd Wacom Anime/Manga Contest - My First Love

2008.4.8 – It's that time of the year again when school kids in Japan return to school beneath the showers of cherry blossom petals, and draw hearts on envelopes containing love confessions to their future sweethearts (a few heartbreakers too...but we're optimists here at Wacom). To celebrate this time of year, we'd like to invite anime and manga artists to illustrate your own anime/manga scene of your first love for the 2nd Wacom Anime/Manga Contest on the Wacom Community. Good luck!!

I just dunno why Taiwan is in it. Since they are all basking in the light of freedom for not being included in China, they are full spamming the Wacom site with entries. TOO MANY TAIWANESE ENTRIES!!! LIKE 60% ARE FROM THEM!!!
