    Okay, sorry for abandoning this thread for a while, never thought there would be troubles with it... i'm sorry if the purpose of this thread was a bit vague...

    the thing we're doing here, is to nominate mangakas who can be described as successful, now being successful here means that they were able to develop a manga or two that can be widely recognized as a great success in their own field (eg. all the people in the current list.) and discuss the reasons they were able to do this, like what they did, how did they go about doing it, what got them started, etc. in other words, people who were able to achieve their aim completely, something that (supposedly) all of us want to do. and before you ask, no, achieving an aim of doing a two page manga with blank panels is not called success... (i think it's better if i add this to the first post... )

    and i just added evil-cake for the hell of it, can't you guys stop being so damn serious?

    btw, i must agree with whoever suggested amatsu ken. he fails probably in love hina but if you read negima, you won't see anything like his action packed drawings!

    naruto, bleach and onepiece are no match when it comes to battle packed stuffs!

    although the first chapters in negima are kinda shit, but in chapter 80+
    everything becomes thrilling

    Takeshi Obata- Death Note

    Yusuke Murata- Eyeshield 21

    Kentaro Yabuki- Black Cat (he's drawn others though I haven't read them)

    Nobuhiro Watsuki- Rurouni Kenshin, Buso Renkin, Embalming

    Funnily enough, the last three were mentored by Obata.

    This guy is such an odd bird.

    He totally went from writing stark, deep and extermely realistic cyberpunk stuff in the late 80s/early 90s to basically being a megaweebo hentai producer now. I own all of the Appleseed books; Their art and design style should, by all rights, have become the new macross.

    Perhaps he just became disillusioned?... >_>

    Or he just lost his mind. Lots of great SF writers eventually went crazy and went on to writing creepy fetish porn crap. Asimov and Herbert come to mind, and I'd say Heinlein, too, but he started off a crazy deviant so it wasn't a sudden change like with others.

    Do you like big boobs? Dragons? Ninja? Martial arts? Wizards? Then click here and make all your wildest dreams come true!!
