Hmm, I don't know. Seems more like the exception to the rule. I don't see a doujinshi mangaka making that much. Sad to know semi-popular manga don't make much.

The money amount is in Yen by the way.

>People have been saying that the depression in the publishing industry is caused by the youth becoming alienated from print, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Even manga hasn't been selling well. Just in February of 2013, one of the oldest mangas, Manga Sunday discontinued publication. According to a study, there have been 23 manga magazines that disappeared in 2010, 10 in 2011, and 14 in 2012.

>On the contrary, it seems that dōjinshis have been doing relatively well. The Comic Market, or better known as the Comiket, which is held twice a year in summer and in winter, is the world's biggest dōjinshi marketplace. The Comic Market 83 which was held at Tokyo Big Sight from December 29 to 31 was attended by a total of 550,000 people for 3 days -- the record attendance for the winter edition of the event. According to a past study, the average amount each male attendee spends on merchandise is \33,740 while females spend \30,100. It is estimated that the 3-day event has an economic effect of over \15 billion. It seems that the outlook of the dōjinshi market is relatively bright, as the Japanese dream of "being a popular manga artist and have a huge mansion built" is still well and alive.

>But the sad reality is that only a handful of professional anime and game creators get to earn 10~100 million annually. The basic pay a newbie manga artist receives is around \4,000 to \6,000 per manuscript for a Shojo manga while it's \5,000 to \8,000 for a shonen and young adult manga. It's also common for a semi-popular manga artist who has a regular manga in a popular manga magazine to only be earning around \2 million a year. There's no way these people will be able to have houses built with that amount.

>But on the contrary, there are a lot of dōjin mangakas who earn over 10 million a year. This is because their mangas are sold directly; the mangaka may have to shoulder the printing and shipping costs, but without publishers and distributors in the way, almost all the profit go to the artist himself.

>And since the sales figures are not made public, there are also some who fake their taxes. There was actually a dōjin mangaka who was busted in 2007 for not declaring his true income. He earned \200 million for 3 years, but only declared 20 million in earnings. He was arrested for evading taxes that amounted to \67.5 million.

>Even through simple calculation, this mangaka earned \66.6 million a year. Even most presidents of major, first-rate companies do not earn this much. And what's more surprising is that there were over 300 mangakas who earn on a similar level, or even higher, at the Comiket.

>shitty porn is selling better than serious manga
What a surprise. Otaku are worse than cancer and AIDS. Probably the most pathetic, tasteless fans of entertainment in the whole world.

editors are out of touch, they should all be fired

That's just fucking sad. You can probably make more money by flipping burgers.

2mil / 4000 = 500. おk

Fucking Japs and their porn industry. When Yakuza will take over the Comiket?

>sure
Makes sense to me. Comiket is huge and popular doujinshi authors can make plenty of money.
>>
Even the worst manga can be salvaged through porn.

Is Japan dumb?
>>
It's like this everywhere. Porn is a huge industry making more than Hollywood.
Who the fuck buys porn, though? We all know that otaku are borderline retarded so they buy fuckton of doujinshi, but what about 3D porn? Or JAV?

Isn't JAV the second biggest porn industry in the world? It's definitely dominating in Asia.

>>101953927
It is. I'm okay with 3D porn, but I watch it for free... I mean, it's just porn. You'll cum one or twice and it's over. Is this really worth its price?
