How do I become a foreign mangaka in Japan? 2020/11/5 05:10
Look, guys. I am 15 years old, and I'm not stupid. I am a lazy dude who is trying to change his ways. I know for a fact that even if I make my dream there is gonna be hard work and a LOT of dedication.

But.... even if I'm not in the best position to start, I don't want to give it up. So, anyone who respects this, and feels like there is some way to do this, please help. I have about two years left and I want to be able to think about what I have to do, and how I'm gonna do it.

And for anyone who has gone through similar stage in their life. Good luck.

A quick search of this site should show quite a few threads asking the same question.

Online web comics have also revolutionized how specifically overseas talent is started to be spotted. For example - Tower of God.

Others will know more

there is no road to be a mangaka.
in some schools, you may learn some techniques to write manga, but, it is not essential way to be a mangaka.

Nationality is not an issue at all. Just keep writing and keep knocking editors' doors. Needless to say, your manga needs to be written in fluent Japanese language, and you need to understand the advice the editor might give you in Japanese language.

Another option is to be successful in your own country first, and get support from a reliable and skillful translator/interpreter/organizer.
