The Cost of Producing Manga

Generally it takes around 8,000,000 to 10,000,000 yen to make a 30 minute episode anime. In the case of manga, because there isn't much information available, for now we'll consider the pay for a one-page manuscript as 20,000 yen. Please pay attention to how the calculations are handled, since even by analogy the following calculations contain many steps.

In the case of a weekly serialization, because in 2 months a tankoubon can be compiled, a 100-page monthly production rate = 2,000,000 yen.

Even putting together the costs of toner, pens and paper, the necessary expense is around 100,000 yen. The rent of the office is difficult to evaluate, but we can assume it's about 100,000 yen. What requires the most money is the labor cost paid to the assistants.

1 chief-assistant + 2 or 3 sub-assistants + 1 background artist, it's a group of 4 or 5 people.

When we include social insurance and even pension (considering such cases are frequent), for one person, 150,000 yen should more or less be necessary. Moreover, in the case of the chief-assistant, due to his experience, it's not rare for the cost to be 300,000 yen.

If such salaries exist, and if the assistant start to work in their 20's or 30's, they can barely make a living (if they give up the idea of having a house, a wife and kids). So, the wage of a mangaka, counting only the labor cost, should be around 750,000 to 900,000 yen. If they have a weekly serialized story, with approximately 10,000 yen for each manuscript page, they should feel like they're earning money.

In the case of a tankoubon publication, there will always be problems on the publisher's side. Even with 10,000 copies, each costing 420 yen, the sales would be around 4,200,000 yen. Also, for tankoubon at the price of "New Book Edition", the minimum circulation required must be 10,000 volumes. For example, "Norakuro" is an old manga, but it is being re-published in a splendid format. The front cover is a hard cover, and it's boxed. The price for it at the moment is around 2,000 yen per volume, which is unreasonable.

If it takes 15 minutes to read a volume of manga, 30 minutes to read 2, and if we decide to use a minute-based cost of 8,000,000 yen for a manga, the cost becomes almost the same as the amount of money needed for an anime.

A movie at the theater for 1,500 yen can amuse a person for about an hour and a half, but there is no way a movie costing 24,000,000 yen would be possible, although the movie population and the anime population are different.

For a 20 to 30 year old person considering making a living by drawing, there are plans to increase the wage, such as raising a mangaka's wage (and perhaps the salary of the assistants as well), drawing without using assistants or a working place, raising the cost of tankoubon. However, when compared to business designers, fine arts school teachers and so on, the occupation of a mangaka is only "worth it when he or she scores a 'home run'", otherwise the occupation amounts to very little.

People that play sports, compose music, write articles, and so on, are in the same situation as people from a creative world. In the case of novels writers, generally there aren't a working place and assistants, and concerns of the circulation of tankoubon are very rare. Although there are many cases where the first issue comes with a hard cover, the expenses are only slightly better than a mangaka's. The fact that there are publishers who commission writings and manuscripts with newcomers, it's only because it's a period in which new materials are starting to sell well, and every year a newcomers comes out.

There's also this kind of article:

- Living as an Animator: The Cause

Most animators aren't company employees, but individual workers. There are deductions to the income taxes on the payday, but pensions, insurance premiums and municipal taxes will be claimed afterwards. Unless it gets into the government pension system, they won't reach the percentage of benefits a company employee receives, and there is no retirement allowance at all. There are no bonuses, paid vacations, unemployment insurance and worker's accident insurance. There can only be something like that if they spend a huge amount of money for insurance.

Therefore, to achieve a stable life like that of an average salary man, sometimes one hears that he or she needs to have three times the amount of money. That's why to be like a salary man with an annual income of 3,000,000 yen, one needs to have an annual income of 9,000,000 yen.

If we consider this, does even the job of a manga assistant at the chief level needs a monthly income of 1,000,000 yen (more than 10,000,000 yen of annual income)? At this rate, what would the situation be in Japan where the mangaka has to pay his or her assistants?

Post Best beer in the world? Reply with quote
I have 2 countries as favorits when it comes to beer.
Poland and Czech, i would say that my favorit from poland is Tyskie and my favorit from czech is probably staropramen!Though I never really dug on beer......
When I was in high school, Crazy Horse was pretty fun until they stopped making it.
Then the bride and I had to stay in England for a few weeks last year and our favorite beer there was Stella Artois. Though, when we got back to Colorado , we bought some and it just wasn't the same.
I'm going to say "vacation" beer is best... that which tastes good in a setting where you're not drinking it because it's a normal brew you're used to and in a setting that's not your home or local bar

Post Very Interesting Here! Reply with quote
Hello world! I'm from Latvia, I now have a computer and Internet! It's so interesting here! But on some forums I see strange posts, they offer to buy some pills or something and they look very stupid. It is robots posting? I thought moderators should delete such posts. Maybe somebody will explain me what's going on? But at all it is very interesting to speak to all you people!
Kisses! :)

Post my first poem ;-) Reply with quote
What do you say about my first poem ?: Winters on Ballybran were generally mild, so the fury of the first spring storms as they howled across the land was ever unexpected. This first one of the new season swept ferociously across the Milekey Ranges, bearing before its westward course the fleeing sleds of crystal singers like so much jetsam. Those laggard singers who had tarried too long at their claims were barely able to hold their bucking sleds on course as they bolted for the safety of the Heptite Guild Complex. Inside the gigantic Hangar, its baffles raised against the mach winds, ordered confusion reigned. Crystal singers lurched from their sleds. half deafened by windscream, exhausted by their turbulent flights. The Hangar crew, apparently possessed of eyes in the backs of their heads, miraculously avoided injury as they concentrated on the primary task of moving incoming sleds off the Hangar floor and into storage racks, clearing the way for the erratic landings of the
stream of incoming vehicles. The crash claxon pierced even storm howl as two sleds collided, one to dip over the baffle and land nose down on the plascrete while the other veered out of control like a flat rock skipping across water, coming to a crumpling halt against the far wall. A tractor zipped in to fasten grapples on the upside-down sled, removing it only seconds before another sled skimmed over the baffle. That sled almost repeated the nose dive, pulling up at the last second and skidding across the Hangar floor to stop just inches away from the line of handlers carrying the precious cartons of crystal in to Sorting. Only a near miss, the incident was disregarded even by those who had barely escaped injury. Killashandra Ree emerged from the sled, taking as a good omen the fact that her sled had skidded to a halt so close to the Sorting Sheds. She caught the arm of the next handler to pass her and firmly diverted him to her cargo door, which she flung open. She didn’t have much crystal, so every sp
eck she had cut was precious to her. If she didn’t earn enough credit to get off-planet this time . . . Killashandra ground her teeth as she hurried her carton into the Sorting Shed. As the man she had pressed into her service quite properly put her carton down at the Hangar end of a line of ranked containers, Killashandra’s patience evaporated. “No, over here!” she shouted. “Not there! It’ll take all day to be sorted. Here.” She waited until he had deposited her carton in the indicated row before adding her own. Then she strode back to her sled for a second load, content management service amistad poesia barcelona hotel bagnoles orme turismo austria commandeering two more cmm handlers on the way. Only after eight cartons were unloaded did she permit herself to pause briefly, coping with the multiple fatigues that assailed her. She had worked nonstop for two days, desperate to cut enough crystal to get off Ballybran. Crystal pulsed in her blood and bones, denying her rest in sleep, surcease by day, no matter how she tried to tire her body. Her only respite was immersion in the radiant fluid bath. But no one cut crystal from a bathcube! She had to get off-planet to ease the disturbing thrum. For over a year and a half, ever since the Passover storms had shattered Keborgen’s old claim, she had searched unremittingly for a workable site Killashandra was real
ist enough to admit to herself that the probability of finding a new claim as important and valuable as Keborgen’s black crystal was very low. Still, she had every right to expect to find some useful, and reasonably lucrative, crystal in Ballybran’s Ranges. And, with each fruitless trip into the Ranges, the credit balance she had amassed from her original cutting of Keborgen’s site and from the Trundomoux black crystal installation had eroded beneath the continuous charges the Heptite Guild exacted for even the most minor services rendered a crystal singer. By fall, when everyone else she knew — Rimbol, Jezerey and Mistra — had managed to get off-planet, she had labored on, unable to make a worthwhile claim in any color. During the mild winter, she had doggedly hunted in the Ranges, returning to the Complex only long enough to replenish food packs and steep her crystal-weary body in the radiant fluid. “You really ought to take a week or two up at Shanganagh Base,” Lanzecki had said, intercepting her on one
of her brief visits.

Post I am getting tired of fake reviews online Reply with quote
Hi everyody

This is maybe not a good place to say that but I am just very dissappointed and simply wanted to share this with you guys here on www.dostscholars.com.

Everywhere you surf online you find reviews of different things. From the best Laptop over casino reviews to pills that make some parts of your body grow and others shrink and it is all fake The reviews are written by some content writer that never saw the product and the product that pays most is on the #1 spot.

What can we do to make the web a better place for everybody?
