Writing a Fighting Series.:

 1 Chagen 46, Wed, 13th Oct '10 12:12:30 PM from I don't really know
Well, I'm writing a Touhou fanfic, Even A Chance Meeting, that is primarily a mix between a Rom Com and a Shonen Fighting Series, and I'm having trouble with that last part.

While I haven't really planned out any Story Arcs yet, I'm still wondering; How many fights is too many? How many can there be before readers go "Oh, god, not another one"? Also, how long should fights be in the first place? I don't want them to be so short there's no point, but I don't want them to 10 chapters long for just one. Coming up with a Shonen Fighting Series was harder than I thought would be.

Thanks in advance.

Two chapters per fight is a good length, especially if your chapters are long.

As for number of fights overall, it depends on the number of characters.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
