The most important point when creating a story

You might have worked very hard to come up with a manga, but it will be in vain unless the story is understood by the readers.

The most important point in creating a story,therefore,is to make it easy to understand. To do so, you have to make it easy to read...

WHEN (time) WHERE (place) WHO

WHAT is done or being done

And you must make it clear how and why it turned out that way.

What is happening now is related to the past, and will affect conclusion

Only she is not scared of me.

Only she is not scared of me.

Future (conclusion)

Manga Characters

What is character?

The most important elements of manga are the characters. Both the theme and the past story are carried by the character.

Interesting Manga CharacterPersonajes Luffy Uno Por Uno Manga

An interesting work has above all, a strong main character, who lives vividly within the story. Even though readers may not remember the story the character lives on in them.

Short Stories Cartoon

Short-story cartoon should have only one theme. The theme is central.

Feature-length serial cartoons may have up to three themes and they may have further subplots, but... /

One theme only for short pieces

Basic theme

Digressions, subplots, etc.

Hntagonists and supporting casts are important!

Assuming that there is a hero, as in the example.

[Express his character| and shine.l

fJOnly when there is| ¡villain, can a hero

Some basic examples are : When you draw a cold antagonist vs a passionate hero, their mutual personalities, coldheartedness and passion will each clearly bring out the other's character.

However, it will be a little difficult if the hero and the antihero have the same character, unless both of them have passion. When both of them have just ordinary characters, it will be difficult for them to play off one another, and you run the risk of a story that just goes through the paces.

I think fighting is bad.

And one more example, this time of a love comedy. If the leading boy and girl are both shy and cannot say around that they like the other, the story will not develop and there will be no sense of character.

Passiue

But if a rival with a positive presence shows up, it will bring out the characters of the protagonists, and as a result, the story will develop.

Positiue

But if a rival with a positive presence shows up, it will bring out the characters of the protagonists, and as a result, the story will develop.

The antagonist and supporting cast are very important in creating and showcasing the leading character.

In manga, it is important to think about the personalities of characters. Even with theme alone, a story will follow. This is the secret fundamental to manga.

Individuality and personality are created from how the characters interact.
