    I remember reading this when I was in elementary school (6-7 years ago). It used to be my manga drawing bible. Looking back on it, it's not that great. I was surprised looking at the cover, because I used to think it looked so professional and amazingly awesome. Now I've grown a lot in drawing, and I'm glad to say that I've improved a lot. But it was a great beginners book that got me started.

    This book was made by a kid for kids really. Unlike the more refined "How to Draw Manga" series, this book is easier to follow in its steps, and none of the content is seriously offensive to adults. Katy Coope's style was (yes, WAS as she doesn't draw much like this anymore) simple yet cute. Though it's outdated by the modern Anime industry's more cutesy "moe" style, it still holds its place as a "manga" style, if not a retro one that shouldn't die off.

    I just stumbled upon this in recommendations, this was the first manga drawing book I got,at a school book fair I think. At the time I thought it was fantastic and I remember I did learn a lot from it. However the art style is far from beautiful or detailed as seen from the cover art, this is more of a Digimon/Pokemon style than the exquisiteness of Arina Tanemura,but if you're completely new,it'll get you going!

    I read this when I started focusing more on my art, and I truly believe this book held me back. I liked it as a child, but looking back as an adult, I regret it.

    This is a pretty good Manga tutorial book. It’s great for beginners and I’m sure more advanced Manga artists could find something useful in it as well. The Things I Liked: I love the way the artist draws eyes. They are simple to draw and it is easy to modify them to create different characters, which the author shows you with examples of different faces. Quite a large section of the book is dedicated to eye tutorials, which I think is a good thing, because eyes are definitely one of the most impor This is a pretty good Manga tutorial book.

They are simple to draw and it is easy to modify them to create different characters, which the author shows you with examples of different faces. Quite a large section of the book is dedicated to eye tutorials, which I think is a good thing, because eyes are definitely one of the most important parts of a Manga character. I like that the author shows you how to draw faces from different angles, i.e. looking up or down, towards or away from you. I’ve never seen this in a Manga tutorial book before and I think it could be really useful, especially when conveying different emotions. Another thing I’ve never seen in another Manga book before is example of different expressions shown on the same face. Usually authors give you examples of expressions but use a different face each time but I liked Coope’s approach because it is easier to see differences in expression when you use the same face every time. Probably my favourite thing about the book was the chapter on colour, which is not a subject that most Manga tutorial books go into detail with. Coope explained the colour wheel as well as complementary and contrasting colours, which I thought was great. Coope also shows you how to create different textures using colour, for example clothing fabric, metal, wood or soil. The Things I Disliked: There were SO MANY typos in the book when I was reading it I thought ‘did no one even edit this?!’ The mistakes were usually things like putting a random capital letter in the middle of a word, for example ‘coloUrs’ which I thought was a bit strange really. I think that the author could have devoted more time to Chibis in this book. The section on Chibis was very small and I know that they’re only a sideline of Manga but still, I wished for more. I found that I had little interest in the very large section in which the author talked about her own characters. Sorry, but I want to be shown tips on how to create characters of MY OWN. I suppose I can’t complain too much. I got this book at a discounted price of £2.99 (the RRP was £12.99!). And I think it has enough useful stuff to make it worthwhile.

    I was only 9 years old when I got a hold of this and it changed my life. I never knew what manga was and I my peers around at the time called it "anime" even though manga was the correct term. This book was the stepping stone for getting me into line drawing as well as basic figurative drawing. This book gave step by step guides on how to draw characters as well as getting a basic form laid out. If it weren't for my eagerness to learn new things as a child I wouldn't have been where I am today a I was only 9 years old when I got a hold of this and it changed my life.

For anyone who would like to start manga drawing, this book is definitively recommended!

    This might not be the wonderweapon that teaches you how to draw like Leonardo DaVinci but its a very nice primer for the foundations of drawing things, especially if you always thought that drawing and painting is magic and voodoo. If you want to buy some book for your kids and they have zero experience then this is better then the good lot of these books around. However do not expect wonders from it, it should only be seen as something that is fun to read and gives stuff to try out.

    If you are a newbie, a reeeeeeeeeeally n00b newbie, this might be useful however, in the moment you start gaining skill, don´t look at it again. Faces with sharp corners, stiff poses, dull coloring and don´t get me started with the blush in EVERY. SINGLE. FACE. always OVER THE NOSE. Nope. Instead of wasting your money on this, it´s better to look at tutorials on Deviantart. It was a present from a cousin and I regret that they wasted their money on this.

    This book isn't going to make you the uber manga artist that you'll see touted in various art magazines and such, however for beginners it does a lot the other "How to draw manga" books don't. It breaks things down a lot better. I particularly loved the chapter on drawing hair. I found it the most helpful. Overall this book is a good start if you've never draw much of anything yet, however more advanced artists might not find much in it.

    I literally looked this book up for fun. I figured there would be tons of results but this exact one was the first result and it was the one I imagined. Such embarrassing elementary/middle school memories...so many bad sketches....still good times though. A true memory of my gen. Haha

    I really wish I hadn't read this when I was 11. Or any age, frankly. I expect it would have saved a lot of time getting out of bad drawing habits. I really wish I hadn't read this when I was 11. Or any age, frankly. I expect it would have saved a lot of time getting out of bad drawing habits.

    This book had some interesting diagrams, but it wasn't overly insightful compared to others I've read. Definitely liked the visual resources in it though.
