German Mangaka: DuO


Deutsche Mangaka has translated an article from Sajonara titled "Mangaka made in Germany," which explores the German manga scene, and looks at a two-member mangaka team called DuO.

Manga are, to somewhat simplify it, Japanese comics. Mangaka are what the makers of such comics are called. In Japan, the term mangaka has been institutionalized, and is an official job description. Oversized almond eyes are reknowned as the most obligatory mark of comics in this style. In Germany, the business is currently winning ground with the help of young girls.
