Hello everyone! 

I'm  trying to know what is needed for a manga to be made.

I'm also here to make friends as well. ^_^

I really don't have any particular knowledge to help, but I'm interested in what you find out.

If you were to twist my arms and say "tell me what you think anyway" I'd say to create one you need art and a storyline. I find storylines really separate manga for me. There can be certain forgivances (plot-Ki) but the way a good manga ties all (even the seemingly unimportant) details and scenes together throughout the series can make or break it. Consider the blond girl's fight stance in Attack on Titan or L and Light's duel of wits in Death Note. There are often constraints for the characters and world to build character development, tension in actions, etc. That's what like about manga, the intertwined stories and speculations. Same reason I like shows like Breaking Bad or The Walking Dead.

Again, no real experience, just my 2¢ bump. What are your plans for it? Publication? Just for yourself and some friends?

Step 1: Put tails on all your characters, make their gender indicernable, and equip them with non-sensical swords

 

Step 2: put your pages in reverse order

 

Step 3: -CENSORED-

 

Step 4: Profit.

Well I plan for this manga to be on tv. Either though you may not have experience; I appreciate the time you took out just to help out a stranger. ^_^

In all seriousness, unless you live in Japan, are fluent in the language, and have an "in" in the industry, your chances are slim to none.

 

*** THE MORE YA KNOW ***


Manga = Written form

 

Anime = animated cartoon.

I do understand Setzaroth. I am learning japanese by the way. I know that getting inside the manga industry is no joke. I would have to go through failure in order to reach success.
