I hope from my deepest heart: this is a joke. I hope from my deepest heart that people who what to become an manga artist are not like that. But occurring to last issue on the how to draws, I am little worried. Any company published that kind thing will lose its reputation more than $2.19/issue. Any way, the only thing I am sure of = I will never buy that crap. Seriously, I will throw it in fire if its free.

Here I have a better idea to fulfill one's dream of becoming manga artist. In Japan, earliest adaption are mass produced cheep magazines like a telephone book, only those greatest pieces have a chance to re-master and reprint in the dedicated format (classic manga book) or even have a chance to be made in to anime series. How about we start at web comic first, and then base on the reader's rating and serious review like ANN, select a few good ones and make them into ... what ever better ...

You're probably thinking of the "edu-manga" version with the bolded SAT Vocab words.

... I wish I were joking about that last part. Sad

Haha yes, I've seen a volume or two that stuff. It had been blocked out of my mind until now. Good comic.

To clarify: I mean ANNina, not the dreadful SAT manga I have seen.

And yet, ANNina is an OEL. Thus proving there are good, competent OEL's by making you laugh about the stereotype of a bad one Anime smile [Though mind you, I think the OEL term'll die out at some point. I'm rooting for Mindy Comic myself... manga+indy!]

As to how Mike got published, maybe he took more of a parody angle?
