^_^ Featuring Apple Pencil and 3D Touch support! ^_^


Download Manga 101 and start drawing! That’s right — you can draw right inside the app, using your finger, an Apple Pencil, or a third-party stylus. Then, share your art by texting or emailing it, or save it to the camera roll.

Manga 101 was made in Japan by the art professionals at Manga University, publisher of the worldwide bestselling “How to Draw Manga” series of books.

We created this app so you can enjoy all of our FREE drawing tutorials on your iOS devices. Now you can learn manga and anime techniques wherever you are!

The app also features a complete catalog of Manga University books (with links so you can get them on iBooks); our popular gallery of YouTube videos (including the all-new "How to Draw Manga" series featuring Mosoko Miyatsuki); and news and interviews featured on our Tokyo Campus Blog.


If you enjoy our app, please be sure to tell your friends about it. We’d also love for you to rate and review Manga 101 on the App Store ^_^

Ok. this app is kinda just😬bad. I have three reasons why....first of all why doesn't it have more than two colors? Second of all it actually isn't giving us a how to. Actually quite the opposite!( literally nothing!they are just telling us, "put more detail in it then it's easy!") Lastly the app gives the picture examples so much detail in the how to guide, but we actually don't get any of those materials we need for the actual drawing in the sketchpad. Oh and I also forgot, just like the colors it only gives us TWO and only two drawing options... writing and erasing! I don't want to be harsh but,😐in other words this app is an obstruction.

Ok I’m gonna state some pros and cons

It does give a tutorial on some things better than others, but it doesn’t do a very good job describing how to get to each step on some of the parts. It’s very clever that there’s a drawing pad in the app, just maybe unlock some abilities a bit more, it shouldn’t just be the way it is.

Lastly, I would like to test the app for like troubleshooting and stuff so where can I contact u

I would never recommend an app to help someone learn anything, but MU is an exception. I quickly learned the basics and was able to find more material at Manga University's website to "level-up" my manga skills. I will warn you that this app does NOT teach you to create characters, only the basics ( eyes, clothes, hair,etc.)
