gotta have good grammar, a strong imagination, open minded, be creative.

If your someone who just wants to do this because you feel like it or you were suddenly inspired by something quick....save yourself the trouble and just drop it

Well it depends... first you start poor and work hard to earn fame and reputation (competition & magazine slots & online community)...only after that you'll be able to earn big. It's a mountain to scale and it's a serious decision to be a mangaka... many have ''died'' (failed to achieve) trying, but don't let go of your dream ^.^

I'm also aspiring to be a manga-ka, i'm taking illustration as a major now in college... good luck to you too~

I think it just like an author, depend on how popular your manga are.

It also depends on how long you've been working, how much you work and how reliable and consistent you are. The majority of manga in Japan is published as chapters in weekly or monthly anthologies. A veteran author may not be as popular as someone who just recently started writing something that's become a hit but might make more money because of his seniority and his reputation for making deadlines. A lot of artists might get into the business because they love to draw but, in the end, it's a job. They have to work like anyone else to pay the bills and it's probably not as glorious as they, or us, originally thought.

Most people read manga online for free and don't buy the books so majority don't make a lot of money.

It's just like being an author. Not every book turns into bestsellers/wins over Oprah/gets a movie deal. The ones that earn millions upon millions are few and far between.

Manga accounts for over half the published pages in Japan so this certainly isn't true. Yes, illegal online versions and downloads do hurt but most Japanese buy their manga.

Based on what I hear.. mangaka's are... eating ramen all day.. you know.. like a college student would.. xP some however... make it big... like movie star big where their mangas are adapted

You OP. From my own opinion, I can tell that ppl who watch anime tends to aim for these kind of things, either they are childish or they're just those things you have to work hard for. I once thought of this but I realized that being someone who does this things isn't exactly my type. If you're just being an immature kid who thinks that he's going to make it there then I suggest you don't make a shitty thread about it, most ppl will boast and post shit about themselves.

To all those self proclaimed drawing fucks, FUCK YOU. This is about the job, don't you dare go on that topic you fucking assholes. In fact, just shut the fuck up, no one needs a high headed faggot claiming that he's going to be making those animu shit with his fucked up drawing he keeps posting cause he's too proud of himself.


Er... I dont understand the second part and i'm a girl not a boy.


You don't have to understand, it's for ppl who purposely post some of their drawings here to prove that they are capable to make it there whilst in reality, it's just a child's daydream.


youre really mean, TriPad...
some peples dreams do become a reality.... but its easier to have a backup plan just in case - make sure you have a decent job ar education before you start to do manga.
I've been wondering - did you get up on the wrong side of the haystack, TriPad? Lol calm down! lifes a bitch but if you treat her right, she'll become marginally less of a bitch to you XD
x


I don't give a damn shit to what you ppl think about me, who the fuck gives a shit to opinions coming from the usual 13+ fangirl on CR. Think about it for a second, if you're a foreigner, do you have the guts to make a manga? You'll be makinga fucking rip off right there unless you went to jap where it'll much worse for fucks. Let's see now, a decent job right? Well then, a decent job would actually BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF MANGAKAS since it can support you well unlike the manga making thing which is pretty much unsure. Who are you to tell me things like that? For all I see, you're just like those faggots who run the previous threads like this one then after awhile, stopping and realizing that his dream is a hard one which will give him very little benefit at all. Listen here you fangirl bitch and answer my final questions, do you seriously think that you can make mangas(setting you as an example)? And if you can, can you actually try and support yourself with this job knowing that you deserve something more than that? Oh yeah and I forgot this, can you even travel to Japan and start a life where you'd be making mangas and such?

The usual "dreams become reality" reason, it's for someone with a fucking attainable goal.

And can you not being malicious nor irrational, thereby hurting a lot of the innocent people here on the CR community with your negative opinion? Because dream can become reality, when you know how to set attainable goals with positive thinking.

Your dream can come true, if you know how to set attainable goals with positive thinking. And first, you need to know just what are you trying to obtain, is it happiness, or is it success? In another word, just what is your ultimate reward for fulfilling your dream as a mangaka?

You just agreed with my last sentence you fuck, go back to your fansub hate threads and fuck off.

No, for all I see is you being a victim of your own negative outlook on your unresolved dream to be a mangaka.
