    I don't like to use the word Manga-ka cause im not one... I'm a Comic Artist but eitherway you need : Patience- ALOT of it! , skill, The ability of story telling!, decent equipment, to not be afraid to show EVERYONE your work, a team of critiques , not to be afraid to go out of the box (e.g. look at other forms of comics) and alot of Faith in your own work!
    Hey Check out my blog! where I add my Comic BREAKER- and all sorts of fancy artwork

    More than anything I would say it takes focus.... I consider myself to be a decent artist, but I doubt I could even successfully create a comic for one reason: I lack focus.

    But then again, I suppose I don't know much about the life of a manga-ka. I imagine they get tired of their own work at some point though.

    To be a mangaka you need:
    -live in japan.
    -have publishers who want your work.
    -work with others.
    -Sell your shit (if you shit doesn't sell you are doomed).
    Well with the way manga and anime is spreading all of the world do you think that in the near future you have to actually live in Japan to become a Mangaka? I mean, there is all kinds of talent in the world, why limit it to one country?

    I call it many names. The two that seem to be most accurate tho are "Hell" and "Work".

    Then you will become a comic book artist/writer.

    I think the only difference I have seen between manga and comic is mangas are only made in japan (I know, it's a silly difference). So if you can do a manga outside of japan, then it would be a manga? or it would be a comic?

    Also the industry of the "manga" is way different at the one of the comics and sadly, in japan, publishers are more interested in sell stuffs that have merchandise potential, and only few people are supported to do other things.

    Exactly, so can you become a manga artist?

    If you don't live in Japan, you don't, people are going to call you comic artist, no matter what you say.
