Two Manga Artists in Action

Kodansha has uploaded videos of two mangaka at work to on YouTube Channel. Furthermore, they plan to stream a series of videos following Ishikawa Masayuki, known for Moyashimon, drawing his latest manga.

The first video is Makoto Raiku (creator of Konjiki no Gash!!) working on his current fantasy manga Doubutsu no Kuni (Animal Country). Raiku started this manga last September in the first issue of Bessatsu Shonen Magazine published by Kodansha.

In the second video, mangaka Ooima Yoshitoki draws a page of his manga adaptation of Tow Ubukata’s Mardock Scramble sci-fi novel series.

In early May, Kodansha will stream another video, Ishikawa drawing the ninth chapter of his Junketsu no Maria – Sorcière de gré, pucelle de force manga. This manga is serialized in Kodansha’s new magazine, good! Afternoon, since its November 2008 launch. The ninth chapter is due to be printed in the 11th issue of the magazine on July 7. It hasn’t been stated whether the live video feed will be available worldwide, but the first issue of good! Afternoon did become available online for free, worldwide.
