    From what I've seen, most manga artists in Japan still do it the old fashioned way of paper and ink. Most Western comic artists though are a bit more open to non-traditional methods using computers* but there are still those who do make it the traditional way.

    * Software's used here in the west are generally one's like Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, and so on. Manga Studio is a known software but I don't know if anyone actually uses it to make their manga. It definitely has a lot of tone resources which is great as tones are kind of hard to come by in this side of the world.

    Speaking of software, I do know lots of manga artists like coloring their work on Paint Tool Sai and Photoshop.

    Yup. Either one is preferable but in a nutshell: Whatever you want to use is usually the best.

    I have to shout out for using Paint Tool SAI. If you want to do draw or paint, this program is amazing. You won't find another program that has brushes that are as responsive. However, there are no layout features that you will find with other more general use programs like Photoshop. If you want to do manga, I highly recommend either pairing SAI up with another program such as GIMP or Photoshop. Or just use Manga Studio 4 EX. I work with all three of these programs and they're all very good, but each requires a bit of learning to realize the full power of the program.

    What do they use to make anime? Flash nor Anime studio cannot be the answer to that.
    I remember an anime where they actually explained it, it had something to do with a kid and a bat
    it was on adult swim for some time. Whatever.

    What do they use?
