This is the shit that is killing manga.
Seriously, Tokyopop is encouraging western people to further corrupt the manga industry. Oh boy, I can't wait to go to my local manga section and see less of that dirty FOREIGN manga.
Seriously, these guys are not "manga-ka", tokyopop, and stop trying to make people think they are.
Sure, there is talent there, but it is not manga and if I want to read american comics I will read them as AMERICAN COMICS. Stop blurring the lines.
Pic related as indication of NERDRAGE.
Yeah, well they have weekend long anime course at my college, and their head visted us, and spent half an hour telling us how awesome tokyopop is,
Also check out this archie comic. It's made by an alum of mine
Half of that shit is only similar to manga in that it's not colored.
Stop with this fucking "Japan is superior!"-attitude. Americans can draw manga just as good.
OH GOD, kill it with fire.
I threw up a little.
You asked for it...
>Americans can draw manga
Americans draw American comics.
11s draw manga.
I read manga because it is from Japan
I read comics because they are from america
I like each for its own merits and they should NOT mix. Seeing Megatokyo in my library's manga section next to Eden pisses me off.
no, they try to copy the bad japanese mangakas, what makes em even worse.
Doesn't change my point, there's plenty of awful japanese managkas too.
Some of these "American Manga" are even drawn right to left just like the Japs
talk about Weeaboos...
Nips fuck us up too. Don't worry: the rape is consensual.
"Manga" is the japanese word for comics, it's NOT a fucking style or genre.
What? That's vastly superior to the original.
This there's jap scribblies next to the title, that makes it a manga
> it's NOT a fucking style or genre.
I'm pretty sure it is.
I dont know who's the bigger weeaboo.
The faggots that draw amerimanga or OEL Manga or whatever the fuck you want to call it,
the faggots that complain about it. HURR HURR ITS NOT JAPANESE THEREFORE ITS NOT REAL.
But when they do it it's cute!
It's funny, because every single Amerimanga has that ONE thing in it's art that totally exposes it for being not authentic. It's like they don't even really care, if their art were better, I'd have no problem with it. I mean hell, when I draw, I'd say it looks pretty damn close to authentic. But the ones who get published all of shitty art that nobody buys.
I'm pretty sure you're wrong.
Conflicting opinions! Whatever shall we do?
That's what it means in japanese. In english it means a comic which was drawn in Japan.
BEES TOE WAH ZA
MANGA means it was DRAWN by an Eleven.
Sure, there may be other differences, but this one is a DEFINITION of manga.
No, I don't refuse to read other comics, but they're BY DEFINITION not manga.
And "Hentai" is Japanese word for pervert. But we speak English here, and how we use this word may differ.
Still, manga = Japanese comics. Nothing more, nothing less.
SHOW US OH GREAT MASTER OF THE NIPPON ART.
That said, it's a shame that a lot of comic are actually okayish. Then again, "okayish" doesn't bring in the money so they slap on the words manga and bingo. MONIES.
Do I need to remind you the last time this happened?
LET THE BODIES HIT THE FLOOR!!!!!!!!!!

Calling it a 'manga' is clearly an attempt to garner people who are fans of manga and want to draw manga, but unfortunately were born in America.
Manga-style, sure. But I really doubt calling manga 'manga' in korea makes sense if its a manwa, unless its japanese.
Same thing with anime and cartoons, got dang weeaboos.
CAN'T FUCKING UNSEE
Oh god moar pleez
This is fucking retarded, it's not in a different category just because it has a different name in a different language.
I jumped on a random comic and read Soda Pop. I'm normally a tolerant person but seeing the artist say, "I'M TRYING TO SAVE PAGES" twice is fucking stupid and not funny.
>Same thing with anime and cartoons, got dang weeaboos.
cause 'anime' is a japanese thing and has nothing to do with 'animation'
WHAT AM I POSTING?
WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW... not here of course.
Wouldn't have a problem with this if they were actually good.
But they aren't. Therefore, RAAAAAAAAAAGE.
where u been oblien?
Amerimanga is awesome you guyz!
american pseudo shit koreanpseudo shit fuck no
Because you too share my form of masochism.
We love things that make us cringe and fume and RAAAAAAAAGE!!!!
Hong Kong... and /v/.
Planning to camp out here because of Smash Bros Brawl. I really want to play it but lack the money to import it into the UK.
This isn't my best, but I thought you might like it specifically for content. I drew it for one of my Japanese friends. He thought it was hillarious, as PPD was his favorite anime. Then again, I drew it on a train.
...uhh, yes it is. There are lots of examples, and not just japanese.
God I hate those fucking BLUSH WHISKERS!!!
Neat! Any more?
Something horrible sprung to mind. I was browsing for torrents one day and I saw an ISO for something called MANGA STUDIO. Apparently it's meant to be used to create manga. Being the curious fuckwad, I spent a few hours downloading it and installed it. Holy shit, it was like they played about with Photoshop and tried to recreate it from memory but with MOAR SPEEDLINES.
tl;dr. Slap the word "manga" on anything and people will buy it.
Sigh. I hope they get better. Much better.
I've got a reeeeaaaal good one, but I haven't scanned it yet.

So... are they outsourcing to Mexico?
Well, let me tell you something. When me and your mother were just in junior high we went on our first date. But later as we grew I was also somehow two different people. Your mother was a powerful Mew Mew as we have told you. Your mother is a Mew Ichigo. While I was the Blue Knight. Deep Blue and me and myself, but all in the same body! I and Deep Blue had white skin and pointy ears and yellow hair and a BLUE CROSS looking outfit, and saved your mother. But until that form went bad, I was known then as PURE EVIL. Deep Blue. I had white skin and my same hair color was MUCH MUCH longer. I tried to destroy all mankind and all worlds, until I came back as a new me, same as I am now. And me, and Ichiko beat him. We saved everyone and the Earth. Now I just want to tell you, if you become a Mew like your mother, PLEASE fight for good and everything you are born for. Do NOT be afraid to tell your boyfriend most of all tell us, Toya. Please do not HIDE it from us, as well as Ichiko told her parents she was a Mew, Ichigo. As soon as we saved the earth. Just wanted you to know.
Archie: At the core of the character, who is Sabrina?
Tania del Rio: Sabrina, despite all her magical powers, is just a regular teenage girl! She's not the "popular girl", but she's not the one that everyone picks on, either (well, except for Amy, of course!). I think she's a character many teens can relate to... she's got a good heart but she can also be selfish and short-tempered. She doesn't always want to take the advice of those who are older than she is, and she gets distracted easily. At her core, she's just a girl who wants to love and be loved, and who wants to know what her place in life is... as she gets older she has to start thinking about what she wants to be when she grows up and that scares her! I put a lot of my teenage self into Sabrina, because I remember how stressful and confusing it could be! But I was never quite as fashionable as Sabrina, that's for sure!
Archie: Whose idea was it to make Sabrina evil?
Tania del Rio: My editor Mike and I discussed it as a way to spice up the Sabrina storyline and I realized that it fell right into place with the overall story I wanted to tell. I think this is Sabrina's personal "test" she has to endure before she can become the person who can help save the Magic Realm.
