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

If you are really good, you can always get some company to publish your manga. Manga just generally means comic in Japan. Everywhere there is comic, but it's a distinctive style of Japan, that's all.

For example if you were Dutch, you can still draw comic, and make the manga-style your style for your comic.

real or not, the manga is about himself with another name(understand a gaijin in japan) he likes a woman who likes another (jp) guy. while she waits for that guy to end his relationship with his girlfriend, she accept to be the gaijin girlfriend. kinda sad for the gaijin. a loveless relationship. or one sided one.... anyway. not your typical shoujo manga. and as i said: like tanizaki san.

It's true that the majority of manga artists are Japanese but that doesn't mean a non-Japanese can't be a manga artist.

Nah...I know some Korean manga artists that drew popular manga. Park Sung Woo, Park Hui Jin, Lee Hyung Sook etc...

It it is not required to be japanese to become manga artists, it just takes talent and skill.

I think other people can be manga artists as well. They just have to be good with plots and drawing. Also, deadlines are okay with them

Maybe. Because "manga" is the term they use in Japan. There are other terms they use in different countries.
But if you mean people who draw those comics then no. -_-
I wonder why the person even made a thread like this. No common sense? Jk.

But if you mean "manga artist" then still no. Because anyone can be one. Some people in Japan aren't Japanese, but are Japanese citizens.

No. I`ve seen numerous foriengn speaking mangakas published with profiles on deviantart.

However, i`m sure that the editors look for japanese people, in the japan area, because of viously manga originated there, and a majority of the manga we read are japanese. So, its natural to look in that area.

But yes, you can become a mangaka.

Well I never heard of a career that is limited to race. Maybe if I google it I can find one but still. If it's something that you love and really work hard for I think you can definitely do it.^^

Nope. I think it's fine for non-Japanese to be manga artist. But what makes manga good is the story and all. not really the artist. But in my opinion, I'd rather read a Japanese-cultured plot manga than comic books like Spiderman or something.
