I would make one like naruto, one piece, High School DXD, or bleach but would continue it up a long way like 300 epiosdes andthen start introducnig hentai and continue making it so it has action adventure, blood, psychological thriller, and hentai with the best art in anime ever so it will have everything to make it more like in the real world plus the benefits of being in an anime like magic and stuff!!

Have you thought about making your own manga.

I think about that a lot whenever I browse manga, and I realize how many crappy stories get published. But I don't think it'd ever happen and I'm more interested in webcomics anyways. Much more experimental with multimedia elements.

What type of manga would you write about?

I think I would focus mostly on character developments/relationships (not necessarily romantic/sexual). But after I get some experience, I'd put those well-developed characters in interesting settings to watch how they adapt/react. Yeah, I'm practically thinking of this from the perspective of creating real characters who I just document in the process. That's what I want to reach. I'd probably also write some stories that are more preference geared but still well-written nevertheless because some areas are very dry in that. Idk I don't want to limit my creativity to genres. But knowing myself, I'd probably attempt at some satire/deconstruction stories and they'd come off crappy.

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.

Well, assuming that since I was writing manga and profiting from it, that must mean I have a good grasp of the language already. I still might hesitate because their culture can be quite different in many ways. I'd consider it.

I don't know if it has been mentioned already, but sites like Mangamagazine.net and Tapastic.com allows you to upload your own manga and if you gets popular, you can make money from it.

I thought about it and yes, i have been trying to create my own manga.

I have thought of it to be a fantasy with maybe a little romance set in a parallel world based on the Victorian era but with magic.

If i want to, i would like to live in japan but i would not mind living in America until then(i don't want to do it with Marvel or DC at all)

Have you thought about making your own manga.
Yes! I was trying to make my own manga for about two years, but I would never finish because I was either too lazy or I just wasn't satisfied with the story. But about three month back I saw there was some kind of competition, so I pushed myself. I worked for 2 weeks and slept 3,4 hours a day. But I managed to finish it, and I was rather happy with the results. Also after finishing it, I realized that I really love making mangas. I mean I love drawing and I was always very creative kid, so I could make up and write stories pretty easily. But manga combined both, picture and the word. And in the end it was amazing and exciting to see your finished work.

What type of manga would you write about?
hmm, I seem to aspire to slice of life ( I try to make my characters realistic as possible), with a touch of pshological, maybe fantasy and romance( but not plain shojo mangas). I tend to mix everything in.

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 definetly go to Japan, because my country doesn't have a market for mangas, so going to Japan would give me a chance to continue my development and would give me a chance to become a professional mangaka.

Same here. >_< *glomps*
Plus I'm too impatient to wait till my drawing gets better, so I've settled on writing light novels.

I have thought about making my own manga. I actually have several story ideas but I've never put them down on paper.
I would write about any type of manga, really. Although I would like to focus on a type of shounen manga with a female protagonist who does NOT provide fanservice and can fend for herself.
As much as I would like to visit Japan, I would prefer to create the manga where I live. There's just WAY too much competition in Japan. I would never survive...

Have you thought about making your own manga?

Sure! Lots of people here have, I'm sure. I try to come up with new stories all the time. I notice on here and other sites, that a lot of people like to use stories that came up with a long time ago. They drag them on forever, and they put their characters in everything... really, it's kind of annoying at times. It's good to come up with new stories. Stories of different genres and styles. I couldn't stand doing the same thing forever, haha.

What type of manga would you write about?

Well, for the most part, I enjoy seinen manga. I've come up with a lot of stories over the years, ranging from shounen to seinen and everything inbetween... but I think that if I decided to sit down and really pull something out, I'd want to make something a little serious, dark, and misleading. I'd be tempted even to try a horror manga, haha.


People make manga outside from just Japan. If you had the choice, would you continue to create manga from where you live or go to Japan?

Aa.... Maybe. I've spent time overseas and really enjoyed it. I'm planning getting my masters in Chinese Mandarin, specializing in translation. While I'm doing that, I want to take other languages as well, with Japanese at the top of that list. My Japanese is alright as it is for reading and listening, but I have no formal training, so it's hard for me to construct detailed sentences.

That being said, I could probably get behind going to Japan for a while to study manga making, but I'd like to further my Japanese skills first. Haha, maybe I'll do it at the same time! Who knows. I know that to me, the one big advantage to creating manga in Japan as opposed to doing it here in Canada, would be the materials. It was so much easier/cheaper for me to buy the materials I needed for comic making in China than it is here at home, so I can only imagine how easy it would be in Japan.

Have you thought about making your own manga.

Yep! My friend and I would plan about a manga we were going to make together: I was going to draw and she was going to write it, but we never really got around to it lol xD we just made all the characters and had different elements of the plot already made up
What type of manga would you write about?

The one my friend and I were going to write was a slice-of-life-ish comedic thingy about culture clashes in an international school or some stuff like that I've also tried on my own and it was a serious, seinen-type thing. I think if I were to start one now it would probably be a reverse-harem/romance/action or some thing like that.

Probably from outside of Japan, I would make a manga that is not centered in Japan most likely. I guess though it would be nice to be where all of the latest manga is coming out and the special pens and stuff, but I would just visit for a while. I'd like to travel anyways, but not specifically to Japan.

Since I'm 14 lol, I'm now 22. What a life I had.

What type of manga would you write about?

I got 2 Ideas in my mind right now, One of my main which is something like naruto, one piece, etc. Long story with some crazy adventures, showing how the main character progresses through hardship. I started making this story since I'm 14, after 9 years the story seems to be totally different tho. another story I thought out was a survivor action genre, to be honest...... the another one was much more creative than my main lol.

Most likely I'll do it in my country, if there's a chance my manga got noticed by japan. I'll definitely go there and try

Oh definitely.
Since I was 11 and could wrap my mind around the idea of "original content". I still don't think I'm ready for it though. I learned not too long ago that even if my idea isn't terrible, my execution was awful. I left too much to the reader to figure out, and the pacing was like a marching band in a parade set on fast forward. Also my motivation during the draft and sketch process was like a wet noodle. ;-;

I'm still considering it though, but maybe a few more years down the line after my story telling skills have seen some more use and my idea has fermented a little. Webcomics are becoming a standard. It's more accessible than a bookstore, and without the need to pass a publisher's approval, you have a lot of freedom in story telling and print formats. Seeing works like Cucumber Quest and Ava's Demon and Cut Time, where the authors lay it out straight that they've been planning for years before finally rolling the ball gives me hope~ As long as hard work, not genius is the answer, I can do it!

I wanted to write something like a fairy tale, but the more I had to add to make the story line make sense, the more it deviated from fairy tale and wandered into an action adventure category. I don't want it to go that way, so it's kind of stuck in limbo and I decided to live life, absorb some culture, and figure it out once I have a more concrete view of the world. You can't write what you don't know.

I would not go to Japan. ;-; Never. Not after reading Bakuman. Nope, nope, that kind of job is way too brutal. Here in America, your audience's expectations for production are much more reasonable.

It technically cant be a manga if it inst Japanese but i get what your saying.

Have I thought about it?
I have thought about making one ever since i really got into manga's. I've always wanted to see how it would be like to be a mangaka, but I have a long way to go until I really find what will suit both me and many readers. I also should brush up on my drawings. I want to to be a bit better with bodies. That for me is a pain in the neck. I could do it sometimes but other times they look deformed depending on the angle.

what would it be about?
I've always found that a post apocalyptic world or corrupt government leaving people to fend for themselves is where I have pulled the most ideas from. I used to write short stories about a small society that had to find means of power to over throw their extremely powerful communist leader. I took inspiration from devil fruits to gain power.

Would I move to japan?
As much as I love The States Japan would be better fitting for me. I really find interest in their architecture, their religion, and their History. Also We all know that manga do way better in Japan, so Yes i would most likely move.
