What exactly does a assistant to a mangaka do? Do they draw the panels/do the lettering/help add shading to a page? Or do they actually help draw what fits into the panels by imitating the artstyle of the main mangaka?

They do all the work. Some mangaka are more like directors than comic creators.

Sucking the author's dock.

It's said they mostly do background and effect work. I'd suggest that manga about mangaka's if I remembered the name. Anyone?

Depends on every mangaka. There are artists who do everything (or almost everything) by themselves like Iwaaki, Yasuhiko, Miura, Nihei, gekiga artists, etc. Then it differs from mangaka to mangaka, some are letting assistants draw backgrounds, other let them draw background characters, SFX and so on. Almost everyone let them apply tones.

For example, Yukimura Makoto draws "relevant" characters, backgrounds, SFX. And lets assistants draw background characters and apply tones. On pic related you can clearly see what Yukimura drawn and what was done by his assistants.

I think that's what Araki does, but he only started using assistants more when he went to a monthly schedule. He still does all the characters but will let assistants do the backgrounds, tones, etc

One of my favorite manga, even if the gag arc in the middle was shitty.

Fuck, long post numbers feel so weird. It took me a while to get used to /vp/ after 10M, it might be much harder now on /a/. They're unnecessarily long.

>Aito-san doesn't understand the feelings of the characters in his stories. So he asks Ashisu to help him. Ashisu would do everything for the work. She would even grope her own breast so he will know how it feels like?!

Hata started out as Kumeta's assistant.

Kumeta is grumpy about it at times.

What does an assistant to a hentai artist do?

Why?

>What exactly does an assistant to a mangaka do?
Usually they do the bitch work that the Mangaka doesn't want to do.
Tone, backgrounds and/or background characters, inking, lettering, scanning, cleanup, assembly, formatting, digital delivery, etc.
Basically the things that keep the mangaka from doing what (s)he wants to do and is good at.
Every Mangaka is different and might have assistants that do 90% of the work, or do hardly anything at all because the Mangaka is a control freak.

>>100051384
>What's the incentive for someone to become an assistant?
It's how you become a Master Mangaka yourself. Ignoring the fact that Japanese business is super traditional and all about "promoting up from the bottom", starting as an assistant also puts you in front of editors and all the people who make the choices of what manga is produced. It shows you can work regular deadlines, shows you know what is needed to make manga professionally, and gives you the contacts to get your work off the ground. All that and you're usually working 8+ hours a day drawing, which is great practice and a good way to pad your portfolio.

Because its such a great opportunity thou, you're usually payed dick, treated like an ass, and fucked over regularly. Because if you won't do it, 100 other manga nerds will do it.

Because Hayate makes bags of money compared to what Kumeta makes
