When I read manga I notice that the styles of drawing are always a bit different and it a raises a question: There are specific styles of drawing manga?

There are different styles under it. Styles can range from simple & cartoonish, more realistic, artsy or something in between. Shoujo art, for example, have very distinctive style which originated from Osamu Tezuka's drawing style - most likely from Ribon no Kishi - which later evolved to have the more realistic art style but still feminine at the same time.

Ribon no Kishi (1954-1968):

Glass Mask (1976-ongoing):

More current styles of shoujo include Vampire Knight, Crimson Hero, etc. This style is also used in yaoi manga. Example:

Different styles have sub-categories depending on the genre of manga. I'm pretty sure you won't see Goku looking characters in an anime/manga about love and friendship.
Or a really technical style like GITS in an anime like FLCL.

GITS = Ghost in the Shell, manga by Masamune Shirow. It's been made into anime too.
FLCL = Furi Kuri or Fooly Cooly, an OVA series made by lots of big names in anime industry.

Heh,

Man ofcourse manga's have different styles....

Its also easier to read and get better in the story when there is a style suiting your story (read bakuman xD)... Like shoujo's usually have twinklie girls eyes, hot guys, blush and like flowerly stuff with scenes. blablabla but psychological manga's are drawn more like eye-powerness >.O perspective stuff to make more impact, more realistically? . And you also have that the mangaka all have their OWN STYLE you can even go through mt's art gallery stuff everyone has its own style cuz you never copy everything completely. but it all just depends on the mangaka, i can't say there isn't a shoujo manga that will be like different style youknow.

Shoujo:

I disagree with the idea that a style has to be attached to a genre, prove of this is Devilman, Strongest Man Kurosawa, 20th Century Boys, Uzumaki, Parasyte, Noramimi or Takemitsu Zamurai. And if you want one of the big examples of this challenge, Hellboy (a cartoon-ish, dark glam comic with lovecraftian creatures).

That's why i said it isn't always like that... it really depends on the mangaka.... but you can't deny the difference in styles

Dudes, keep yourselves sane here

Yea I agree with Clock to a degree. But for the most part, mixing styles within a genre is a pretty big leap. And it either works or it doesn't.

Devillan

Mixing styles should depends on the scene

No, it mostly depend on your understatement of styles and appreciation. It mostly about making work art theory, style and genre features.

It depends on the Mangaka.

It's really how he/she wants to portait it right? what he/she is capable of no? its what they think we see.... it doesn't always work out, but meh everyone has their opinions

No, it mostly depend on your understatement of styles and appreciation. It mostly about making work art theory, style and genre features.

Which is why some things fly, and some things crash. Most of the creators find it easier not to make things too complicated.

ClockHand

yeah and most of the creators replicate styles and then you have million of dragon balls or sailor moons with different names.

The 3 big problems with mangas (japanese comics) are: Need of good writers, need of personal style and need of risks.

The first and third point are true with any story-telling medium. I don't think style is really a problem though, I'd rather see slightly warped styles I'm cool with and familiar with than stuff that just isn't pleasing to look at.

When I refer to personal style its because the manga industry foment the production of the same style of work, because is easy and commercial. I'm making referent about that point, and how the over production of the same aesthetic is killing the products.
