Genres: comedy
Themes: parody
Plot Summary: Part parody of "how to" manga books, part cutting satire of the manga industry as a whole. Even A Monkey Can Draw Manga tells you everything you need to know to be a successful mangaka - how to choose a pen name you won't regret in later life, why it's okay to copy art from other manga, the evolution of the panty flash, why not being able to draw is no impediment to success, the difference between drawing porn for men and porn for women, how to avoid producing "art", how to produce sure fire hits in shonen, shojo and other genres, how to incorporate subliminal messages into your art to keep readers interested no matter how bad your manga is and much, much more.
