Manga Course news
こんにちは。九段の山中です。 おうち時間、みんなはどのように過ごしていますか。 ニュースは情報収集には必要だけど、コロナウィルスのニュースばかり見ると元気がなくなってしまいますね。
Alas, the final week of the Manga course arrived. The imminence of the culmination of this whole manga-learning endeavor was something I felt as early as Monday, even though I had worked a bit more on my graduation project at home over the weekend, and the next session was on Tuesday. I still vividly remember the moment when I thought of my genius idea of including a parody of one of the biggest manga publishing companies in Japan, which you may notice when you look at my final project.
Basically the whole week was allocated for working on our graduation projects – the cover pages I mentioned in the previous post. The first day was dedicated to mostly finishing the inking traditionally. I inked as much as I can, keeping in mind that I can eventually make corrections and adjustments after it gets scanned.
I just realized that I'm more than half-way done with my conversation course, and only 2 weeks away from my graduation from the manga course. Time definitely passes by quickly when you're busy!
Another fun week had come and gone! In our conversation lessons we tackled the difficult task of giving directions in Japanese, as well as teaching people how to cook different dishes.
Collaboration course with Kudan
The dream course of Japanese language and Manga is now here through the collaboration of Kudan and Mangajuku!(Professional Manga School) You can learn both Japanese and Manga during your short stay of 3 months in Japan.
This course is completely original and is a special course made for those interested in Japanese manga, but is only for students of Kudan Institute of Japanese Language and Culture.
In this course, a professional manga artist together with a bilingual coordinator will assist you according to your level, and whether you are someone who likes reading manga but is a complete beginner in drawing, or for those who are experts at drawing but would like to broaden their expertise, you can be assured that students of any level can take the course.
We have already produced more than 100 student graduates from 37 different countries. While studying Japanese language, you learn how to draw manga characters, and you would be able to create an original character of your own. At the end of this course, along with the Certificate of Completion, you will also receive your works and a manga sketching textbook.
Why not try to directly experience the manga culture that has taken over the world?
