Manben: Behind the Scenes of Manga with Urasawa Naoki

Sakamoto Shin-ichi

Manga, where drama is created with just the tip of a pen. In this program, we show you where manga is made — usually off-limits to the public — and explore the craft.

Get a behind-the-scenes look at how a manga is created with Sakamoto Shin-ichi, a master of realistic imagery and digital creation, and find out how much technology has advanced as the creator works on his newest serialized manga about Dracula. How does Sakamoto fuse analog and digital creation? Why does it take half a day to finish one panel? And what did he gain from turning the novel "Kokou no hito" into a manga? Learn all that and more in this episode of Urasawa Naoki's "Manben."
