have i thought about making my own manga? OF COURSE!! XDDD becoming a mangaka is my biggest dream <3333 i have two manga in progress right now and several stories planned for the future.

what type of manga would i write about? i have several different ideas from slice-of-life to fantasy, but they're all shojo. i like girly things XD and my stories are lots of fun. they have humor and romance, although there are some dramatic moments as well. and i'm going to try very hard to have interesting and likeable characters. (and bishonen of course... lol)

would i move to japan? no. i'm just fine living in the US and i don't want to move anywhere. plus, manga popularity is spreading around the world because of the internet. people around the world want to be mangaka. i predict that several years from now, it will be common to find famous mangaka all over the world instead of just in japan.

i have big plans! if anyone wants to keep up with updates about my manga plans for the future, follow/watch me on one or more of these sites:

Have you thought about making your own manga?

-Of course, I have made some example in the past.


What type of manga would you write about?

-Seinen, Slice of life...


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 don't think so. The problem is that I lose the interest so fast... I have to draw a page with like 5 panels of something not that interesting, i get boring and quit. I'm not that great drawer as well.

I probably won't have the discipline to spend enough time to actually produce quality manga. I just don't see myself getting by with just 2 hours of sleep.

Hi everyone,

I have an original manga web comic I'm working on that's a love letter to shonen manga like one piece, naruto, and bleach. I'm looking to kickstart to raise money to produce a years worth of updates. You can read the pilot chapter on the kickstarter right now I hope you'll check it out.

I yes have thought of manga but more anime or television series with a cool twist of live action and anime combined to form a whole new show type with a complex story line and love interest plus sacrifices we people make every day it has 5 seasons so far in my head with about 12 episodes each season and already 3 movies to this show

genre- action, religion, demons and angels, comedy, romance, drama

if i could stay where i am and get a whole crew to make this idea of mine a reality than i would

if you wanna know more about this show just go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/220073244834176/ and read up on the story so far

Have you thought about making your own manga.
I most certainly have!

What type of manga would you write about?
I've though of plenty ideas when I was in middle school and high school, one of which was an action comedy about a delivery service. Another was bout some gang of assassins that took out cheesy villains. Though most of these ideas were pretty half baked ideas that never really had any good depth to them.

Though after going to school for graphic design and illustration, and find out that making an indie game is tough when not everyone can agree on things, that I wanted to legitimately take a shot at writing and drawing a manga. Though as appose to just being contempt with "It's good enough for America" standards (no offense, a lot of OEL manga SUCK), I've been neck deep in researching other manga and anime to better compose a story that not only is fun, but also deep and engaging enough. A bunch of whimsical words, but with a lot hard work they're being poured into my current work which is a mixture of a lot of things but at the core revolves around Hip Hop culture, free running, and your favorite typical high school romance that dips it's spoon in drama and comedy as well.

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.
Honestly, I would rather live in Japan. The United States offers a lot of opportunity, and the internet has really opened up a lot of doors, but there isn't as good of a market for Manga as there is in Japan. I would as stretch this into anime as well to say that Japan celebrate anime and manga so much to erected a 59 foot statue of a cartoon robot (Gundam RX-78-2). The United States is more suited for traditional comic books and fine arts. You'll be pushed into working on some new take on Spiderman or Superman the second you finish art school if Disney didn't already brain wash you (not a joke, it really happens!). It takes a lot of determination to go against the grain in the US, and it doesn't always work out, forcing people to make cute hoodies for pokemon on tumblr because of a lack of originality, or make a chibi batman.
Thanks to crunchy roll we're getting a faster look at some of the best and most popular series that keep raising the bar (except when it's over saturated with terrible CGI). Additionally Japan has some of my favorite experimental musicians in Funk and Jazz, and also Hip Hop. Sure the difference between Japan and the US is huge, and a lot of people in Japan would hate of me because I'm a forefinger, and I would miss Detroit, Japan just has more of what I like as a staple in the culture. Plus the general work either there is pretty admirable, not all the time, but most of the time. The US is more for Rock stars, Pop singers, celebrity actors and pro athletes.

So again, even though I'll probably be stuck in the US for most my life, I would like to be able to live in Japan because when it comes to a better appreciation for manga and anime, or just comic books and cartoons in general, Japan is where it's at!
