Hello everyone, how are you?
Here is part 6 of my journey to publishing a manga in Japan. This time I will talk about the editor response on my second manga. For real XD. I postponed it like 3 times but the moment of truth has come!
You can also find some good news I got, some considerations and for some reason a lot of off-topic XD.
I am in a really good mood and I hope this journal will cheer you up if have been feeling down recently ^V^. Enjoy!
Because for my first post I ended up having people answering in many different pages not having a chance to notice that they did this time I will ask you guys to read the original journal on my page ^V^. You can find it here :…

Hi everyone! How are you?

Here is Part 5 of my journey to publishing a manga in Japan *v*. I am sorry it took me forever to write it >.<.
It will be a little shorter than usual because I have been very busy >.<, but you can still find some more thoughts about cultural differences and learn how manga contests work (or at least the one I was entering at that time).
Because for my first post I ended up having people answering in many different pages not having a chance to notice that they did this time I will ask you guys to read the original journal on my page ^V^. You can find it here :…

Thank you!

3. A Group For Publishing

FanaticalPublishing said the following:

I'm a publisher and I'm making a group to help publishers and artists meet; each publisher has a folder in the group's gallery in which writers and artists who want to publish with them may submit their works to that folder so publishers may easily browse through them.


MangosliceNET said the following:


I'm in the process of creating a forum for people who are serious about becoming manga makers.

The forum is geared towards having artists and writers help each other by posting resources and giving/receiving feedback.

I was wondering if you could help spread word of it within your group. It would be of great help to me, and hopefully to aspiring manga makers as well. ( You can find out more about the community on our front page )

You can view the forum here:

We're also interested in looking for moderators who can contribute to the community... so if you're interested, please let me know.

Thanks for reading!!,

6. GMI-Deviantart

GMI-Manga said the following:

This is Peter Johnson (aka Petenks from dA). A few of us on dA started an online anthology dedicated to helping independent Manga-artists called the  Global Manga Initiative, and we're giving away $5000 in awards to the best aspiring manga-ka on the web. I'd like to ask about working with MangaAnimeArtists to help spread the word.

Basically, it is our goal to find and reward the best indie-Manga creators out there on sites like deviantart, MangaMagazine, Batoto etc. and we have set up a system of nomination/voting to allow the creative-community to determine which works deserve the recognition/reward the most. However, our group is still very small, and we are having trouble getting notoriety for our project as we lack any major promotional-outlets. To this end, we're trying to spread word of the project through various dA groups to reach as many artists as we can so we can really find and reward the best OC-manga out there.

We'd like to ask if it would be possible to work with AnimeMangaArtists to help spread-awareness of what G.M.I. is trying to do and possibly help find people interested in getting-involved with the project. Nothing too fancy is necessary; we'd be happy with something as simple as a Journal-post or a mention from an admin, just something to get the ball-rollin'. While we'd certainly appreciate any additional-aid, the important thing is simply to get word out there that we're trying to reward creators around dA. I have included a link to our information-pages  here and our dA Group at :icongmi-deviantart:.


-Sincerely, Peter B. Johnson

Hi everyone, here is Part 4 of my journey to publishing a manga in Japan ^v^. To the poeple that have been reading the prevoius parts I promise this manga I talk about in this post is better then my first messy one ahah XD!
This time I went to “La Stanza del Giudizio” myself and that was quite an experience. Also, I had a chance to learn a little about how to make manga from an amazing friend so I was way more confident in showing it to the editor ^v^.  Even if that clearly isn't enough since I couldn't win the contest -.-.

Because for my first post I ended up having people answering in many different pages and I wouldn’t get any message notifying that they made a comment, this time I will ask you guys to read the original post so that I will have all comments in one place and everyone will be able to read them ^^.
Here is the link :…

Thank you.
