Fujio Akatsuka(1935-2008) and Yoshiharu Tsuge(1937-)

in 1954, Akatsuka left his hometown in Niigata and moved to Tokyo at the age of 18.
he had worked at a chemical factory to support his family, and dreamt of becoming of a professional manga artist, kept contributing his manga manuscript to a magazine, Manga Shounen.

soon a manga artist, Yoshiharu Tsuge who interested in Akatsuka’s work got to close to him.
Tsuge was 2 years younger than Akatsuka, had already made his debut as a professional manga artist and worked at a factory for his family as same as Akatsuka.
he strongly recommended Akatsuka to become a professional artist, so introduced him to a publisher of kashihon manga(rental comicbooks).

in 1956, Akatsuka moved to Tokiwasou and created syoujyo manga for kashihon manga and some shoujyo magazines while he worked for Shoutarou Ishinomori as an assistant.
Tsuge often visited the apartment to see Osamu Tezuka and Akatsuka.
except for Akatsuka, the residents of Tokiwasou couldn’t get along with him, because he was extreamely shy.

in Akatsuka’s several autobiographies, he wrote they had discussions so many times over their manga and art style.
Tsuge told him, ‘manga is an art, so it should be. I won’t sell out for money. manga can be serious and creative.’
but Akatsuka wanted to be popular, to become mainstream.
one day, they broke up because they had different artistic directions they wanted to go in.
today, Tsuge’s works are rated highly among the world of manga and art.

A QUICK REMINDER THAT...

… Ishida Sui, the creator of Tokyo Ghoul, has a webcomic named 

THE PENISMAN

ITS A SUPERHERO WITH A DICKHEAD

HE TALKS TO BIRDS

I DIDNT BELIEVE IT FIRST BECAUSE I DONT SPEAK JAPANESE BUT THEN I SAW THIS

he made detailed artwork for it

Ishida Sui, the creator of the famous horror tragedy manga, Tokyo Ghoul, made webcomic of 56 chapters…. Of a guy with a dickhead

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”

now its blowin up but ya know whats Great, the guy who does the webcomic didnt get disheartened. HE’s Still making it cause without it Yusuke wouldnt have a series xD  

Watch the American version of the cartoon be his style

Hello!  Long time no see! \(≧▽≦)/
I’ve got a new job in an advertisement workshop and it’s pretty hard! (>﹏<) During one month of a physical work I had to make four extra holes in my leather belt (⊙_⊙). Every day I’m so tired and I’ve got no time at all for EVERYTHING. ┐( ̄ヘ ̄)┌  But YAY! Little doodle for you is already done ♡ . It’s Kaneki Ken in three versions (^ v ^). I hope you like it! I’ll try to find more time for drawing, promise! .。.:*☆
