Please help me!

I am a mangaka from Germany, and I would like to add
some japanese characters to the title of the comic:
"RIVALRY" I already did, but I'm not sure, if it's
right! (See at Rivalry

I need the word "RIvalry" (Soukoku?) in katakana-
characters. Please, can someone help me out?
It's very important for me!

Make sure you find out the original title. "Soukoku" is not used in daily language, it became more of a literary term. Rivalry itself can be translated as follows (if you use IE make sure to reload the page with Japanese encodings turned on):
【名】 競争{きょうそう}、競争意識{きょうそう いしき}、張り合うこと、対抗{たいこう}、対立関係
rivalry against
rivalry among reporters
報道合戦{ほうどう がっせん}
rivalry between factions
rivalry between the two powers
rivalry in a competitive entrance exam to enter a prestigious kindergarten
有名幼稚園入学{ゆうめい ようちえん にゅうがく}をめぐってのお受験競争{じゅけん きょうそう}
rivalry in a competitive entrance examination to enter a prestigious kindergarten
有名幼稚園入学{ゆうめい ようちえん にゅうがく}をめぐってのお受験競争{じゅけん きょうそう}
rivalry in love
恋の鞘当て{さや� て}
rivalry over territory
Rivalry with best friend // Rivalry with one's best friend
rivalry within the Church
教会内{きょうかい ない}の抗争{こうそう}
Besides, if you use the word "soukoku" in katakana, it is difficult to grasp the word's meaning.
I have just read the story on your web site, it's very impressive! ;)

Below you find a graphic displaying the word "soukoku" in different sets of katakana. Hope this helps. And good luck with "Rivalry"!

Thank you very much!

After you've read the comic you saw it's only for
Layoutreasons, but important though.

Soukoku means rivalry. It is 相克 in Japanese. I think that you can understand meaning from Kanji.
Sou means another one. Koku means win.

Arigatou, NANGI-san! ;)
Now I am real Japanese! hehe
I had never seen the kanji "相克" in my life.
Cool! I learned a new kanji today ... ^^;
