Hey guys,

There’s been some buzz going around about a cool new kind of software from Japan called ComiPo! It allows anyone to make high quality manga and comics with just a click of a mouse, no drawing skills necessary!

The English version of ComiPo! will be released very soon, and as part of the roll out, we’ll be giving away 30 full retail copies.

And, we’d like YOU to make some manga using the software and send it to us for display in our ComiPo! gallery.

To qualify to receive a free download and license key for ComiPo!, let us know the following via email:

1. A short message expressing your interest in making manga with ComiPo!
2. A brief statement that you understand that we will be using your comic in our ComiPo! gallery.

PLEASE send your entry emails to comipo@crunchyroll.com. We’ll be selecting 30 entries in all from the submissions we get.

DEADLINE: Saturday, September 10

IMPORTANT: Sorry, Mac users! The English version of ComiPo! is for use with PC computers only. Please enter only if you have a Windows compatible computer.

To whet your appetite, be sure to check out the official ComiPo! English demo video:

One thing I'm curious in - are there any regional restrictions?

Many of the greatest comics made today are created by someone who cannot draw. They hire people instead to make their vision come to frutition.

Software like this can help those writers that don't know any great artists who wants to work with them. It might look like stock material, but even a Manga based on a Hemmingway Book would be great for those who can't read heavy litterature, but enjoys the comic medium.

Now in order to compete with this, real manga-artists just have to do their best to make their work less "stock". I'd let them be smug and even arrogant about it, but only if they really are as amazing as they claim to be.

I don't really think it's cr, it's more that japan is not mac friendly unless it's portable related.. ahem still this does leave some people out of the loop.. However i can see patches being made.

on the other side this is great for people that want to start their own web comic... I am not talented in the least of the sense however I do wish those that enter the best of luck.

Software looks decent, although for future releases they might want to add a wire-frame editor to make some decent custom stuff rather than ultra-stock stuff.

Now someone just needs to write software that can make a stock story and life is good.

I find it rather amusing. XD id want it for making rough drafts of my own manga...simply because I could so them so much faster this way in stead of constantly redrawing each panel.

I am eager to see this gain in popularity and see what others may make with it. Certainly there was much benefit that came out of making MikuMikuDance available to fans for easy content production. I think this has potential for even greater results with it being all the more accessible to people with creative minds.

regarding the comic on crunchyroll, does that mean every comic we make will be uploaded to crunchyroll? or do we have to make one comic only to be posted for crunchyroll? if so whens the deadline? i got a busy schedule for this semester. but used to make hundred of hand drawn comics so i am interested since this should be alot quicker than by hand.
