Do you think Japanese People are the only ones who can become "Manga Artists"?

Yeah, I disagree with that.
What annoys me is non-Japanese mangaka who write a manga in an English format (front to front and left to right) rather than the Japanese way, why would they do this? It's like destroying the biggest market for your books.


Manhwa that I've read uses the English format too.
At first I found it annoying that Manga, other than the Japanese format didn't follow the traditional way. But now I see it spoof like when western Manga mimics the Japanese format.

no ,almost anybody can be one if you set your mind to it and that you want to be one. Theres no rule aganist people who want be a manga aritist and that you have to be born in japan. If they were then thats just plain rude. so yeah if you want to be a manga artist then never give up keep on going and live your dream!

Somehow.. I think japanese are the only ones that can actually bring out the feel of manga... I mean,,, I've read... korean mangas... (i didn't really like them)... and malay manga... now that sucked even worse.....
*sigh*...but then again... this is just my opinion... and mine alone... and everybody has different opinions... so don't get angry at me if you disagree...

So, for the people who are not Japanese and who doesn't live in Japan but wants to be a manga artist someday, do you think Japanese People are the only ones who can become Manga Artists?

No flames please.


Nice dreams you have there... and good courage for you to admit....
... I hope you can be a successful Manga-ka in the future... if you do...please inform me....^_^

Anyway... mangas are not only for the japanese... although Japanese managas are generally more popular and well-known...
it doesn't mean you have to be Japanese to make a manga of a equal standard....
Thus... i hereby wish you luck....
May "Luck" be with you....
...Good luck..... you need it....

Well, manga is actually Japanese comics, so why will a comic be a manga if it's not Japanese made? But it is definitely a manga if it is first released in Japan, published in Japan,
Koreans have their own, its manhwa
while the Americans, I don't know what they call their comics, or may e just plainly called "graphic novels" or more simple, "comics"

EDIT: people who are not Japanese or do not live in Japan may not be a manga artist because manga means JAPANESE COMICS, but you can definitely be a great COMIC artist if you persevere, and if you really like it, go to Japan, publish your comics there and it will be an official manga now!:)
