Except wouldn't you need to be able to write in JAPANESE perfectly if you were going to be able to sell your manga?

I think this is a valid topic. There is such a thing as racial discrimination in forms of animation and media, such as Anime and Manga. Some people are stubborn to believe that Anime and Manga are exclusive products of Japan ~ hence, any production, though similar in style, outside of Japan is not considered Anime or Manga.

An example of this is Avatar: the last Air Bender. Some people will find it a sin to call this animation an "Anime", simply because it was produced in America, under Nickelodeon studios. However, some artists would argue that Anime or Manga is based on a certain style, not a cultural origin.

There's a similar discussion going on in this thread:

Anime is Different from cartoons!
http://www.crunchyroll.com/showforumtopic?id=3292

But this thread is a bit different, in it talks about manga. I'll keep it open for the time being. If another mod thinks differently, then they should feel free to lock the thread.

yep, i think so...
there are many mediums to be used too, i even think one does not need to be very good in drawing to become one.
in America, i think the counterpart of manga are the glossy comics but the artists dont call themselves mangaka,
i think every country has its own version/name for a manga artist
although the followers won't be as many as the ones in Japan

What if you just happen to be non-asian but was born in an asian country and lived there all your life?
