hope I can help 2004/5/25 05:44
the best way I can think of, is wait for a competition, and then send it in, that's how alot of good manga artists get published

Become a manga-ka in your own country? 2005/7/6 18:58
I work as an illustrator in Sweden and I sometimes get the question from a customer - can you do this in manga-style? Unfortunately I can't, but from this you can tell that there are other ways of becoming a manga-artist, doing illustrations for magazines, books, commercials... In Japan they even have manga in their manuals, so why not here? Just sell it!

How do I become an anime writer? 2007/7/25 02:42
Hello my name is Chris Brown and I love manga and anime especially the action ones like Naruto and Yu Yu Hakusho. I have known since I was young that I have wanted to be an anime writer even though my drawing skills are below average I have started writing many anime stories. I have even begun a card game even though it is far from finsihed. I know that I might not have the fame and experince of a professional writer but I have a passion and drive for it. I know that I would rather do nothing than work for adult swim or some other professional company that promotes anime and manga. Most of my work is unfinished but I am pretty confident in my ability and that I could really be one of the best anime writers in the buisness beside the original japanese authors who are obviously ingenius. I think that anime is the best art form of them all with a stunning mix of realism and fantasy that captures peoples minds and hearts. I believe it should be proclaimed one of the greatest things to ever come to televsion. I really hope to become an anime writer. I would appreciate any help you could give me towards schools or companies that participate in this field. Thanks in advace for your help.

Work or play? 2007/7/25 08:33

The anime (and manga) industry is about working to tight deadlines, so if you can't finish a job, no one will want to employ you.
If you really do have a passion for this kind of work, I suggest you complete a number of stories and put together a portfolio to show to prospective employers.

What do you think the supply for amateur manga artists in US? I suddenly have an idea and can start a business/web site on this topic :p. If I start a web site will you be interested in publishing your works?

Getting noticed by comic industry 2010/3/30 20:20
You have to print and bind your own manga to do this but you can sell manga at anime conventions, and the more the word spreads around about youre work you make get contacted by a publishing company or you should probably contact one after enough people buy it, another good thing to do is while you are sellin it you can postit as a webcomic

Any writers want to do a manga? 2010/8/9 02:22
Hey, my name's Mel. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, and have been drawing manga style for about 2 years. I also started learning japanese a few months ago, and can write in Hiragana, Katakana and understand a few basic words and grammer. I live in London, and my goal is to become the best mangaka in the world. Thing is, i'm not a very good writer.
I would like to do a manga for Weekly Shonen Jump, after winning a contest or few - so if anyone wants to make a manga with me (I'll draw it) please contact me via email (

you are all exactly what I've been looking for, I'm a new mangaka based in brisbane, looking for anime fans, who want to try and make a difference in the anime world in places other than japan.

I'm looking to get a group together and show off what we can do together even though we're not japanese.

I'm looking for new writers/artists/translators/web designers/fans. everyone.

I have a few stories well into the final stages, just looking for solid artists, if that's you message me back. or if you're just interested in writing you're own story.

email me at:

I'm already waiting for your replies.
