There's like no set salary for these guys and it just depends on how popular the series is or how well it sells and manga making is a stressful and competitive job.

Indeed.

I would rather become a novelist.

I love drawing, but I can't imagine myself drawing volumes and volumes of manga; would drive me mad/insane. I can maybe do 1 chapter (also known as Oneshots).

It actually takes a lot of work to draw 1 page of manga...

Well from my experience because I wanna be a mangaka and has don extensive research it all depends of the amount of pages they produce and they work nonstop. The publisher will pay for stuff you do not have. And it does not matter how popular you manga is it's all about the pages not the popularity

Yeah I mean maybe it might deal a little but it's is mostly about how much pages is made per week or Mont weekly being around 20 and 50 for monthly. And it's basically like as soon as they finish a chapter and hand it in they immediately start with the next one and its calculated by how many pages they draw weekly or monthly. And also with the Japanese yen the dollar is a lot more

Thanks a bunches.


Explain your opinion in great detail.

______________________________________________________________________________

I just always wondered how much mangaka make even if they do get successful. Mangaka like Oda, Kishimono, Isayama, and plenty more some get good enough pay yet how much. I'm just a bit curious to know.

Bonus Questions:

1. Can a mangaka make near or the same amount as a novelist?

2. How much do you think American comic artist make?

3. Would you like to publish your own manga?

_________________________________________________________________________________

Enjoy!!!



1. I really don't know how it is in Japan, but I'd imagine that people like Oda, Kishi and Tite Kubo among others are probably set for life.

2. Another topic I don't know about but I'd imagine someone like Frank Miller is probably set for life as well.

3. I can't draw but I'd love to collaborate with someone!
