At least there will be chance to see another manga reaching 1000 chapter. Anyway this is a good news imo.

saaame but I'm... older than 23.

... tbh I think I do draw as well as those samples, but I haven't finished a comic yet, so I'm still behind.

To be fair, it's legal in the Nagano province, I think. And a lot of countries if you're married.

Edit: Heh, I read that wrong. Huh though, 13 year old working in a lewd magazine is a bit weird though, even if it doesn't have explicit porn. Technically.

To be fair, I doubt the adults working at Cheese have much more experience of the subject.

13 and she can write a coherent narrative about a sexual relationship and draw? I'm impressed.

The page samples they used really don't show us anything about her drawing ability tbh. No to minimal Backgrounds, and just head shots/face crops. The page that isn't a splash page has no establishing shot. Her inking is really rough, and there are issues with anatomy. And this is just my preference but I don't think the text bubble layout is very good. But despite all these flaws if she keeps it up she'll be a force to be reckoned with in the future, provided she improves rather than stagnates.

^ Yes, there are artistic issues with the drawings and layout, but considering the artist is only 13 (or so they claim), it's fine. Hopefully, in a few years, she can look back at her first title and be amused as to how much she has improved. Besides, many mangaka improve during the course of the work, and it's not uncommon for chapter 1 characters to look very different from final chapter characters.

Looks like your typical shoujo manga to me. It's hard for me to differentiate them when so many use alot of the same visual styles and plot devices.

13-year-old me would have been so jealous.

...23-year-old me is still kind of jealous.

Still though, I kind of doubt a 13 year old will really be able to write this subject matter very well. I could be wrong, of course, but I just can't help but expect this manga to be really...off.

A 13-year-old middle school girl drawing manga, and this type of story to boot... What is this, a light novel? I just hope the poor kid doesn't have an older brother who also decides to work in the industry...

That aside, amazing. I mean, you can tell she's young from her artwork, but like?? I was about that good at 16-17, and even then I could never have finished a freaking manga chapter, let alone a series! Incredible.

A Japanese 10-year-old kid might be reading such content as such stories are common in shoujo and shuonen (perhaps more common in the former).

Well the drawings look alright so that is a tick. No proof of your first assumption though, so gunna have to wait for some reviews! Razz

lmao, did you ever read a shoujo manga? this is litereally what you see in thousands of these mangas, also, i don't see any issue with anatomy in these pages that i don't see in so many others, with only 13 years she already has better art than a good number of shoujo artists with way more experience than her, you soud very pretentious when talking about a kid with only 13 years that is already working as if you are any professional or expert.
