Anyone can do it if they really try!
It might sound optimistic, but I think it's true.
Although, I think the Comics are the Western version of Manga and I'm sure that even if you don't become a manga-ka, there's always the back-up of becoming a comic creater/writer/artisit
In fact, can anyone explain the difference between Manga and Comics? The only difference as far as I can tell is the fact that most Comics tend to be in colour...

Anyone can be a manga/anime artist, but if you're looking to work with major known companies like from Japan (example: Kyoto Animation, GONZO, TV Tokyo), that will require experience and education. Your artwork has to be original and unique. Age, race, gender shouldn't matter, as long as you know the ways of Japanese cultures (sometimes not required but it is a must), and Japanese language fluently. It wouldn't hurt to learn these things to get where you are going or what you are trying to do. Also, traveling is required, you must obtain a passport to travel to Japan for business purposes if requested to do so. Good luck!

It's possible for anyone to do it. However I believe that the Japanese are not so high strung about tv viewers and manga readers like Americans are. Every little thing or mistake that's made is blown up in America. Not so much in Japan. Or at least I haven't heard about it. Whatever you do, do it up. That's what I say.

If you have the talent to capture reader's attention like the drawing style and plot. no matter what nationality or race. you can still be a mangaka. Plus you have the advantage, a manga in English since readers are not all Japanese.

Anyone can certainly become a manga-ka. The market is just a bit more difficult to get depending on which country you are from. Japan, Korea and Thailand have a big market for manga. In the US it is a bit more difficult, but not impossible. One of the most successful American manga-ka is Fred Gallagher he draws an online comic known as megatokyo. He gets his paycheck through site donations, auctioning off art, ,hard copy versions of his comic, drawing special request art as well as selling comic related memorabilia in his online store as well as at conventions. So take a little inspiration from him, doesn't matter the market you are in if you are determined and smart about it you can be a success anywhere :-) Good luck

No... I've read stuff from Korean manga-ka... But I think Its easier to become a manga artist in Asia rather than the rest of the globe

why not? everybody can make manga as long they not make a plagiarism in story or in character.
