hooray someone has the same idea lol. don't know how many western manga type stuff is out there but there certainly needs to be more of it. I'm going to go into a webcomic based on a comedy character I'd create, then fan based/comedy stuff and probably the hardest thing to do some way to publish my original work. nowhere near a proper start yet though

Good luck!

I'm making an animated pilot episode as well. My manga was published a while ago and was available in comic stores. It was called "Shadow Magic" lol. If you're interested in chatting or checking out my works, my FB page is at http://www.facebook.com/kagepro and I also have a Patreon with information about my anime pilot. http://patreon.com/tiffa

I've also been an artist on the web manga Code of Amanis and recently completed Onkei, another graphic novel available in print and ebook format.

Woohoo! Better get back to work!

In the first place, a thriving cultural industries in Japan do not fit well with the Japanese emphasis on cultural tradition especially when compared to the more culturally liberal US (the thriving cultural industries in Japan can be explained by their historical economic condition). The idea of promoting a manga-inspired or anime-inspired industry in America is a good way to emphasizes the American liberal culture. I had written some scenes for a story called "Fall of Utopia Fantasy" which touch on an something that the US citizen experience but that is not experienced in Japan: the displacement of workers by 'those that do not belong to your kind'.

age is not really an issue. in fact, it's probably better to start at a young age.
Nakayoshi and Cyao (and maybe other publishers as well) offer courses in how to create your own manga (taught by veteran artists).
at the end of the course, they select a few manga to be featured in their magazines. it'll of course cost you, and you need to be in Japan.
(they also feature competition for best manga artists between elementary and middle schoolers)

Kodansha accepts written work (novels) through their website, and if a work is considered worthy enough, they may choose to make a manga adaptation, and only the top tier is even considered for an anime adaptation. all work is subject to the critique from Japanese natives though, so there's plenty of competition to have your work accepted by Kodansha.

pity as I don't remember the west doing anything like that. I don't know the magazines but I do know it's essentially how new manga is spread, they pick up an artist's work and commit a few pages to maybe one or two new chapters of manga, depending on what they have at the time. obviously after a while they put them into volumes and the most popular work benefits the mangaka greatly. all we get in magazines is more ads.

so ye, if you want to make it as a mangaka watch the sales of those magazines, and pray that popularity continues onto the sales of volumes

bahaha! well you got it kind of. if you know about fanfic.net I'm there as hannya sayu. only one story so far about my custom character in one of the dbz games, not sure if anyone's read it though. but ye practice just writing things as plain text first. pick a premise, stick with it, make sure you'd know who the characters are. starting doesn't have to be good, it's just practice for grammar. spelling. and chaining events together
