Do you think you will do "If I were to write a story, It would probably be about the difference between lower class citizens and higher class citizens." any time soon? It's not like I have interest or agree about rich and poor since I thought I understand what is life is, and it's accepting what you have and enjoying it or trying to improve it. It's just I wanted to here your opinion about lower class citizens and higher class citizens.

Have you thought about making your own manga.
Yeah I have and I started one, but I soon realized the reality. I dislike drawing non exciting things and if your manga is going to have any story at all, there are 10 unexciting, non fighting panels for every one that is.

What type of manga would you write about?
Action, maybe with romance subplot. I'm a horrendous writer though, so if I ever did one, I would probably draw someone else's story



People make manga's outisde from just Japan, if you had the choice, would you continue to do manga from where you live or go to Japan.
I would do it from where I live. I used to want to live in Japan, but with all the ridiculous bullshit you hear about that goes on there I don't even want to vacation there anymore. Maybe take a 24 hour trip to Akihabara, buy a ton of stuff, then gtfo

I have no artistic ability so making a manga is out for me unless I partnered up with a good artist. That being said I am writing a novel that I'd like to eventually have done into a manga series.

As for what kind, I guess it would fall in the Seinen category its about a hero dealing with the burdens of being the person responsible for unifying the worlds nations when they were on the brink of destroying one another. He is forced to return when otherworldy invaders move in and try to take over. The main character has already lost a lot of people who were close to him due to the fate he carries. There are a lot of themes so it's not just going to be all action their will also be love interest that appear during the story as well. However; I don't want to get too in depth. I'll have the first volume finished soon if anyone is interested drop me a line and I'll give out drafts once its ready.

As for living in Japan, I grew up there so I'd return if I got into that business. It only makes sense because the bulk of the manga audience is going to be in Japan. Really isn't something I want to get into professionally anyway so not something I have to really take seriously.

I have, and I have tried. My first attempt to write a Manga was when I was 8 and I inked everything out with a ballpoint pen. I am pretty good at scenarios and ideas, but my art skills are pretty meh. The most I can do is a name.

What type of manga would you write about?

When I was younger I wrote SHOUJO Manga. But right now, I have a psychological Seinen Manga project in the works. Now these days I like Manga like Liar Game and Life Is Money, those type of dark Manga, with a hint of romance.

People make manga's outside from just Japan, if you had the choice, would you continue to do manga from where you live or go to Japan.

I don't really think it is necessary to create Japanese Manga with Japanese characters in Japan. It would be cool and all, but I don't think I would leave for Japan in order to create Manga when I can do it here.

I started to try after coming up with an epic idea with a few mates. Some kind of satirical parody of Western superhero-themed comics.

Then I remembered that I can barely even draw a stick figure, so that kind of crashed and burned...

I've tried to do it for years now but I'm somewhat of a terrible writer so I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to "start" it. For me and ideas, if I had a good concept, I can run with it well but it's that brainstorming stage that I'm terrible at. I'm a decent artist that can do quite a wide range of styles. I did commissions for a few months and racked in about $3000 or so.

What type of manga would you write about?
I have a broad range of interests so I'm really down for anything. The one I'm trying to piece together right now is sort of a shounen/action...which is kind of ironic because I'm a fan of comedies.

I'd like to visit Japan at some point (but more as a visit than to actually live there).

I've been writing manga/anime since I was 15 yrs old. I also wrote ideas for video games as well. Sadly though, the fact that I can't draw has been giving me little to no recognition. However, I still do it on my spare time every now and then. :)

I have a (Incomplete) series called Zer0's Legacy. If you wouldn't mind, please check it out and tell me what you think. Hopefully with a decent amount of approvals, it'll give me the energy to continue. :P

Warning: It contains blood, violence, strong adult language, strong adult content, partial nudity, and crude humor.

I did. I always wanted to be a Mangaka... I've already thought of more than 7 ideas... Including RPG games.

Mostly I had ideas or done some drafts of Shounen Manga but at some point I get ideas that are more Shoujo or just simple Younen. So I dont mind doing anything as long as the idea and story is GOOD lol

Naaaah! JAPAN is the ONLY place for me to start everything... I want to learn and improve more so most likely I'd be an Apprentice to someone.
