I had no idea this even existed, but it’s quite fantastic! It’s a segment from the NHK series Shojo comic o kaku about drawing shojo manga, where they visit a new manga artist in every episode and film them drawing. These 12 segments are up on youtube:

The commentator is Satonaka Machiko, herself a legendary manga artist.

eta: This is also quite funny because a lot of the artists are drawing manga while dressed in pretty dresses and wearing perfect makeup, lol. They would never unless there was a camera there.
