Raiden, You'd Make a Wonderful Teenage Manga Character Japanese manga artist Hiro Mashima (Rave , Fairy Tail ) was blown away by Raiden at the recent Metal Gear Solid event. So, he decided to do his take on the character—see above!

The result looks younger—like a manga character should—and quite different from the way Konami's in-house artist and character designer Yoji Shinkawa draws the character.

Mashima is no stranger to manga adaptations of video games. Previously, he did a Monster Hunter manga called Monster Hunter Orage.
