Check out a day in the life of a Manga Author!


No 5 minute recap included

If y'all haven't noticed, we like manga here at Japanator and we're sure that y'all are as well and we found a video that might be pique y'all's interest. PAOLOfromTokyo is back with another video in his 'Day in the Life' series and now it's all about a manga artist. The process of making manga has been something that has been shown in manga and anime but with this video, we get to see real people do actual work.

The mangaka featured in the video is Reiji Miyajima, and his manga is Kanojo Okarishimasu, looks pretty interesting and I'm sure you'll go check out after watching this video. Miyajima's office is one of the more modern ones with a lot of the process done with computers, which is quite a different process than what we've seen depicted in some anime and manga that involves pens and papers.

As you would expect, most of his day is spent on the actual drawing which doesn't make enough exciting footage so it's other side and prep stuff that becomes the more interesting parts to see in the day. As with the other videos in this series, it's not the most in-depth but still quite fascinating to see a snapshot of someone's daily working life from a different culture.

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more + disclosures
