Key Points

Fueled by her love for the iconic anime series Sailor Moon, Liz became a passionate fanfic writer. She immersed herself in the captivating world of Japanese manga.

Manga production stands out from traditional western comic books with its anthology format. It provides readers with an exciting opportunity to explore a variety of titles in one convenient place. They can make informed decisions on which series to follow.

Mangaka dedicate months of painstaking effort to create masterful manga, collaborating closely with editors to craft compelling stories.

Manga offers an unparalleled experience that allows readers to form deeper connections with their favorite series. Each story is crafted by one dedicated writer and illustrator. This creates a seamless and uninterrupted continuity.


“This is a, uh, sort of follow up episode to the anime episode that I have previously done”

“But regardless of what your opinion is of what is or is not considered manga, it is a very popular media”

“In fact, at that point in time in my teens, the only novels I was reading at that point was purely schoolwork related reading because I was so into manga at that point.”

“So I was still invested in wanting to find out how some of these manga series I was reading, like how does the story end?”

“A tankoban is basically the collected chapters that are put together in a single volume.”

“It’s very common for a tankoban to have anywhere on average, from four to six chapters per volume.”

“The term tankoban, it sometimes gets translated as a graphic novel, but that’s not an actually accurate translation.”
