Welcome to Manga University — How to Draw Manga

Welcome to Manga University — How to Draw Manga
Manga University’s founding company, Japanime, marks its 15th anniversary this year. For the past decade and a half, we have given manga-and-anime fans throughout the world access to the resources and tools they need to create their own works of art. Today, “Manga University” is synonymous with “How to Draw Manga." What began as a small toy store in Kawaguchi City, Japan, on February 26, 1998, has evolved into the world’s leading publisher of English-language educational manga. The Manga University publishing imprint was up and running within two years of our company’s launch. We published our first book, How to Draw Manga: Getting Started, in October 2000.
