Alrighty then.

Currently watching episode 4 which gives even more information, this time about the time you use for Manga drawing. There are kabura pens which are convenient to use, but there are also G-pens, which pros are using. They make it possible to determine the power and thickness of a line, but that's what makes them difficult to controll, which is pretty interesting because so far I never cared about the pen I've been using. Just a regular lead pencil. I wonder if kabura and G-pens exist in Germany too. It would be nice to try them out.

I doubt you'd get those pencils by conventional methods. If there's a place you could get either of those pencils, if any, I bet it'd be a Japanese products store of some sort. By the name of those pencils that's the idea I get.

There is a TCG/Manga shop I can go to anytime. Maybe I should check if they have some interesting stuff. Right now, I can only draw the front perspective, though, and not that well yet, but I just started to study intensively. The hair's pretty damn difficult.

More information how to become a Mangaka: In order to submit a Manga, you need an Editor. In order to get an Editor, you submit a manuscript. The Editor is going to read through your manuscripts, and if he deems you as good enough, he'll approve of you and become your Editor. There are several Manga competitions where you submit your manuscripts, and getting a good place will get Editors aware of you, and might even apply by themselves.

I'd say, submitting your manuscript for a competition seems most convenient and most exciting.

One little bit of criticism for Bakuman: They are trying way too hard to beautify the female MC. It's quite unnatural.

Y'got it right. I'll see if there's any Manga shop here on Uruguay, I might be able to get some tools too. And yeah, the hair is the most difficult part of a character design and draw, basically because you're free give the character any kind of hair style, hence no pattern to follow.

Also, what do you mean by MC?

True about the hair. If you got the hang of it, you do it spontaneously and it probably turns out looking good. But if you are inexperienced, you don't know where to start and in general what to do. When I was drawing hair, I'm like "oh no this sucks, better start a new copy". I once was like, "it's okay if it looks stupid, I'm a beginner after all, but I have to try something out" and made some random lines. It didn't turn out well, but much better than expected because you could recognize it was hair.

MC means main character.

Finished the fifth episode of Bakuman. I'm taking my time with it, yeah. But man, it's so good so far.

E: The sixth episode was amazing! It's when the MCs submit their manuscript and get a brief review. Man that sure was interesting, and it felt so realistic, too. I hope that's how it's going to be IRL, so if it happens for me I'm prepared.

Yeah, exactly. That's why you have to practice a lot with hair, to find your own style of hair if your liking. Also, if it is so frustrating you could just draw a sketch of a head with nothing else and start drawing the hair, it might produce better results for the hair.

"I actually gave one condition about moving to Tokyo. If I become Jack's number one, give me the power to end a Manga I hate." Wow, Eiji actually is a pretty interesting character.

Also, nice to see the relationship between Saikou and Miho advancing a bit. Looking forward to that new competion Shuujin and Saikou are participating in.

Believe me, you'd be surprised of which Manga would Eiji choose to end. And yeah, you ain't gonna see much about Saikou and Miho's relationship, you'll see what I mean.

Aw, that was a mean spoiler, because Jack didn't agree to Eiji's condition yet, but Eiji agreed to move without his condition being approved. And Eiji didn't become the number one yet.

Watched episode 8, and man, I loved how Shuujin punched that ugly guy calling Saikou and his drawing crap.
