[This book] is the book for you" -Japan Today"Any youngster unable to resist the Japanese animation wonders of Pokemon, Digimon or Sailor Moon will love learning how to draw their favorite characters. This easy to understand book teaches kids and budding artists the ins and outs of drawing this popular style of animation. Great illustrations and clear instructions make this a great guide for creative projects." -New Idea Magazine (Australia)"The book moves into very complete instructions, delivered by a manga character and supplemented by photos of the necessary materials and equipment, for starting up as a manga artist yourself. ..if you want to become a manga artist, this is a very good place to start." -The Daily Yomiuri
Explanations are brief, and there are plenty of illustrations, but the content has plenty of meat, and the book would suit older children or teenagers who already have a strong interest in drawing.

Overall, though, very good.
-It doesn't describe how to draw people very well. If you've mastered that (which I haven't), the book's fine.
-It barely has any information on paneling.
-The first few pages are colored digitally. A bit ironic that there are pages colored digitally in a book that gives instructions on how to draw traditionally, don't you think?
Overall, if you're still a beginner, this book is not for you. But if you've gotten pretty good at drawing people and are ready to move on to publishing your own manga, buy this book immediately!
Tip for you all: Ignore page 73. It doesn't know what it's talking about.
I don't consider this a "how to draw" book but rather a "how to get started making manga books with all the appropriate materials." Give me a black marker and some colored pencils and I'm happy. This book isn't worth it.
This book is divided in 6 parts(chapters).
2.Draw your own Manga: All the basics
3.Lesson 1: Materials
4.Lesson 2: Drawing Characters
5.Lesson 3: special effects
6.Lesson 4: Background.
Part 2 tells u alot about materials and how to finish a draft while part#3 explains in more details all the materials you need and alot of variety you can and should use if you are serious about profesionaly final drafts. This chapter its very good because it gives u alot of insight on materials and how to take care of them!!!
Part#4 Drawing Characters is very good as well for a beginner. The only thing is that it focus only on the body proportion, the face/head position and the eyes, of course. Nothing about ears, hands, feet, clothe, chibis,fairies, dragons, etc.
Part#5 Special effects its all about what it says. Very good chapter and a lot of basic techniques to make your drawings look very cool.
Part#6 Background. This chapter is more about "Perspective". There is no how to draw a Beach, Forest, Sky or any fancy background.
Overall: Half of this book is informational and half Instructional. If you are looking for a book saturated with examples and exercises and how to draw body proportion from lots of angles, many eye style, ears, dragons, chibi, etc...This book ain't for you. I still love it and i will keep on using it and learning from it.
