    So fascinating! I'm working on a personal art project, and I'm still trying to figure out what helps me focus so I love seeing other artists' processes. One big question I have is how does an artist maintain relationships? What about a mangaka's non-coworker friends? When does he see his wife and kids?

    "Sensei" more literally translates to "honorable master", not just "teacher". Adding this for anyone who might be wondering why his assistants might call him that.

    100% digital…wow. I was also expecting a horror story where the assistants never left the house/office and everybody was always working 24 hours a day, sleeping under desks, and figured the assistants would cook dinner & everybody eat from the same pot. This is so clean and modern, thank you.

    Comic book Writers need to see this and re-evaluate their lives. Most comic book Writers hardly do any research and spend most of their days spreading their political agenda on Twitter. The stories they write sucks ass.

    Which is why the comics are on a decline now and manga is taking over the market. They are really hardworking ppl who work on these manga.
