The other was a bit more serious. For a few years, they ran a "''Rising Stars Of Manga''" competition, inviting people to send in short one-shot manga (though some people would send in prologues to larger stories, and Tokyopop figured that as long as it stood on its own as a story, it was fine) and published ten winners each year. Many of those winners were offered to do full series, such as ''ComicBook/PeachFuzz'', ''Manga/AtomicKingDaidogan'' (made by Nathan "Captain K" Maurer, famous for his uber-popular ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' fancomic, ''Webcomic/DoubleK''), ''Manga/DogbyWalksAlone'', and even Endling of ''Webcomic/EverAfter'' won the second competition! Unfortunately, after seven contests, the entire competition ceased from existence, and most of the artists who were offered deals [[ScrewedByTheNetwork have had their series pulled]]. That was just the beginning of those creators' problems, though.
