Well there's only one way to find out, and that's to try it out. But it should work fine with the paper seeing as though Copics are non-bleed markers and dry extremely fast.

I would suggest just experimenting with them to see which one works best for you, do remember that you can also scan in images into computer programs and then lineart + colour on them

I've used Copic markers on manga paper before and had no problem. Although, I would recommend putting a sheet of copy/scrap paper underneath the manga paper just in case. Manga paper is fairly thick but, when you're layering colors, bleed does happen even with markers that are not supposed to.
