Manga Contest World Manga senbatsu - Manga Kingdom Tosa × Niconico Manga × Comic Walker

Result of the Final Round

Regarding the Final Round

Manga is usually something that is drawn with a variety of quirks and personalities, so it is not something you can use to compete with. However, by establishing a theme, a contest can be held. All the artworks were well drawn, but I feel that the contestants who were not able to get an award this time around were too focused on the drawing. Manga is formed by creating a good balance between the art and the story. Keep this in mind, and I’m sure that you will see improvements in your future works. The culture of manga has spread across the world, and with digital entry contests like the World Manga Senbatsu, anyone from around the world can participate. Thus, I hope that more people will draw manga and participate in such contests.
