Naoki Urasawa’s Manben

If you haven’t watched Naoki Urasawa’s Manben Go watch it now!..well if you are into manga or comics and want to see the process, tools and lives of famous Japanese manga creators in a documentary style program exploring all that then you’ll surely like Manben!

The series is hosted by Naoki Urasawa who is the mastermind behind a body of work that includes masterpieces like : 20th Century Boys, Monster, Pluto, Billy Bat and more. I’m a huge fan if you haven’t noticed, however, it’s not just about him..it’s got so many different flavors and inputs and I really enjoyed it and learnt (learning still) a lot from it.

I recommend that you looks it up and watch it if you like what you read.. and I’ll put links to what I found on the interwebs .so if it doesn’t work or if it violates any rights please let me know and I’ll fix it/remove it. (it’s still ongoing so there will be more in the future..like this month of September!..and I don’t want it to stop! :D) 

But first..some pictures:

Second, comes the English subbed episodes that I found that I’m not sure about sharing them..let me know if there is other sources that should be here instead or where to buy them..etc

When your talented Artist friend redraws your work

Artist Friend: “Dude, this is pretty solid”

Artist Friend: “But I’m just gonna leave this here for you”

Its funny to think that One Punch Man started off as a jokey Web Comic and the Mangaka saw it and was like “BRUH I’m gonna make this look SOOOOOO DOPE for you”
