Day in the Life of a Japanese Manga Creator


Mangaka day in the life in Japan also known as a Manga artist and manga creator. This documentary style video show the life of Mangaka from morning until the evening at the mangaka workplace, home and general mangaka working schedule. Working in Japan and Tokyo life is unique in itself, but even more unique for a Manga artist creating manga in Tokyo Japan. Mangaka illustrate manga commonly known as comic book. Maybe in Western societies, Mangaka are referred to as cartoonist or comic book illustrators. Manga creators in Japan with rensai status work with publishers to produce weekly manga. This Manga artist day in the life follows Reiji Miyajima, who lives in Tokyo Japan and creates the manga Kanajo okarishimasu which translates to Rent a Girlfriend. Mangaka working in Japan often work in their home and set aside office space for them and their assistants. In fact, we also get a look into Mangaka Assistant life as well as how manga is created. Many Manga Creators work on serial comic books with weekly deadlines, meaning that each day of the work week in Japan is different as the manga creation process has to produce 1 new manga per week. Manga artist must not only know how to draw and create manga, but they also must know how to manage manga assistants. We even touch on Mangaka salary for first time manga creators. An inside look on how manga and comic books are made in Japan.

  3. BvsMAcosh says:

    dude lives MY dream.

  4. tokitaro kisetsu says:

    how cool this manga author’s lifestyle is, successfully making a living as an artist.

    although not so obvious poverty is prevalent in japan, if you’re part of the successful folks it’s really awesome.

  5. Grant Balmer says:

    I’d recommend having less scripted dialogue. It kinda comes off as fake.

  6. Sombraelerizo says:

    5:59 Pleased to see they were showing Go-Toubun no Hanayome.

  7. Golvellius says:

  37. DanzoStrife says:

I reallllllyyy love that manga, can’t wait to continue reading it weekly. And keep on doing what you do paolo, you’ve got great content.

  56. Tom Hajdari says:

    Ngl that pen flip at 10:17 was pretty smooth

  57. Saad Ehsan says:

    just something smal i noticed but how come when you ask questions, you voice-over it in english? i think it would be more authentic to have the original audio of you asking them in japanese with the english subtitles over it

  58. ーはる says:

    W-what about his family? He didn’t interact with them once the entire day…from what I saw anyway.

  59. Kavan Puranik says:

    Wait… So this is an 8-6 job? Is it generally compulsory to stay overtime? Is working for/as a Mangaka as taxing as the other jobs in Japan? Do people get Karoshi-ed in this Industry? How does one get to be an assistant to a Mangaka? How does one get to be a Mangaka? Someone please answer my questions, I REALLY wanna know, I’m in the final year of my college and I want to consider my options.

  60. Adam Bowser says:

  72. NomNomBerry says:

    I’ve been waiting for this video for a long time and it was very interesting and informative!! The mangaka seems pretty cool and “relaxed, comfortable” with his assistants, I was quite positively impressed (I thought it would be more like “business atmosphere”)!! I would love to see a video about a “day in the life” of:
    – maid cafe employer
    – geisha or maiko
    – hostess or host
    – fashion magazine model or fashion magazine editor

    Thanks a lot for this video <3

  149. AnimeToonS HD says:

    What if I want to become a mangaka? I’m a Dutch 13 year old girl so I’m not sure. My parents don’t know I’m into anime and everything I draw they call it “Japanese doll-figures”. They don’t know what anime is. If I ever want to become a mangaka I should learn Japanese, write a story and so much more. I really want to work hard for my manga goal, does anyone have any TIPS? Please let me know :”)

  167. JoeysRattata says:

    i have a question about drawing for long periods of time: how do they do it? i can draw for max 4-5 hours before my hand is completely burnt out. i asked an artist i follow and her response put an emphasis on focus, which i don’t think is my problem. i’m not distracted, i’m just physically tired (in fact i’m so focused and into my work that the tiredness bums me out and i wish i could keep going). are there any tricks or hand exercises i can do to increase my stamina?

  168. cevrim says:

    As a Nikon and Fuji fan I would like to see a day of someone who’s working in one of those companies.

  169. Burn With Fire says:

    Manga series about “Day in the Life of” would be so freaking cool.

  170. Matt Apple says:

    I realy start to wonder why almost every YT who lives in Tokyo Show´s the same topics over and over again ( Onsen, Shopping, Akihabara, how to ride the Train and so on…) the channel of ” Life where i am from ” seems to be the only exception, why dont you show more, not Mainstream topics, there are always negative sides too, maybe you could show more Real stuff ?

    Feel the twisting of my internal organs as I am reminded of how much my life has been completely wasted by having big dreams, and lived in a shitty area with no hope or future.

  213. michael nakasone says:

  220. Doutor Gori says:

    I feel a little sad when I see everything is digital nowadays.

    • Pleb McPleb says:

      Half the current mangas I read are still done traditionally
      There’ll always be a place for it for sure

  221. Gunjiro X says:

    I love how easy you show us the everyday life of persons. Things you only see if you meet them in person. Its so cool.

  222. Luiz Henrique says:

    He forgot the main advice for becoming a mangaka: being Japanese.

  236. Villegas Family says:

    Hi Paolo san, hopefully one day you can make a video about the life of a pro gamer in Japan. There’s a lot of famous Tekken pro gamers out there and we would like to know how much time and effort they do just to win at any tournament.

  237. Philson says:

    This day in the life series is awesome.

  238. Mirrorwarrior says:

    I heard that mangaka had a very tough schedule and man, it’s scary from what I have seen and read about it. They give us opportunities to fantasies and windows to other worlds but it does come with a lot of blood, sweat and tears. Kudos to you all! All the best!

  239. Greg Gruenewald says:

    I’m not really a fan of manga comics, but this was pretty interesting. Maybe for your next day in the life series, you can try like a Japanese policeman or woman.

  277. TwilightWolf032 says:

    I have submitted my fair share of manga to Japanese publishers and now I’m working on a doujinshi on pixiv. I have got in contact with one mangaka via twitter who said the same thing to me – if you want to draw a manga, just do it; don’t worry about being good or bad, just draw the story you want and improve from there.

    Too bad I can’t make money with my art yet, because the time I spend working is time I could have used to draw. I can’t make money with my art because I don’t have time to draw, but I don’t have time to draw because I don’t have money to spare. ( TT ^ TT )

    Nice video, by the way. I’m amazed at how much he made on his first job, all I get are US$5.00/500円 for commissions.

  278. David Hodges says:

  321. Rakshak 458 says:


  322. Hiroto Josh says:

    I don’t know why but I always expect mangaka to look good for some reason and I’m always disappointed to see them not matching what I thought. ALWAYS

  323. Biaka Hauzel says:

    It must be so nice to have a job that he’s passionate about.

    Bakuman made it look like mangakas and their assistants are constantly dying and living off Red Bull; in reality it looks like the team is very calm and finished work by 6pm, then has some fun together.

  372. Otaku-Sama says:

    Lol, what a coincidence yesterday night I saw SYDSNAP video on this manga and today I watch your video on the mangaka or Kanojo, Okarishimasu.

    Hey Paolo, I was thinking of moving to Japan at some point in the future but wanted to know what the Martial Arts life is like over there. I’m really into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as well as a few other art forms. It’d be awesome if you could do a video on this for me. ありがとございます.

  377. c4os says:

    Please Paolo keep it up with such incredible job, these videos are superb

  378. Daniel Nguyen says:

  396. wx says:

    Hey Paolo would you consider showing a bit of the behind-the-scenes of Day in the Life of Series? How do you find people to film? Do you leave multiple cameras around the location of the person you are shooting, or is it only your main camera?

  397. Rian Setiawan says:

    Hi Paulo, I love watching your videos but I usually never comment because I’m too busy binging them haha ! I just wanted to say that I absolutely love this series. I’ve seen so many of your videos that I almost feel like I could take on Japan and be accustomed to their culture and lifestyle like THAT. Keep up the good work, I just wanted to share my token of appreciation. Japan is awesome !

  402. OliAnims says:

    Magaka? Is that Japanese for “God amongst men”?

  403. Nik Stavitsky says:

    Hmm I thought mangakas used “possesion” to make mind slaves create for them. I guess Japan isn’t as mystical as I thought. 😛

  404. Espix says:

    Wait isn’t that “how to rent a girlfriend” ?

  405. Pixcel Channel says:

    his character design is good

  418. fateh beroual says:

    Fantastic video ! Thank you

  419. Susana A says:

    I love your vlogs.

  420. Chris T. says:

    Damn Chapter 118 of kanojo okarishimasu isn’t even out yet.

  421. Ales Striy says:

    Awesome! How do you find these people?

  422. Gil Asakawa says:

    Fascinating episode! Thanks for giving us a look at a world that most of us aren’t familiar with, even if we like manga. It’s great to see the “behind the scenes” view of the industry, and to see the creativity and artistry that goes into each issue. Thanks for the insight! Suggestion for a future episodes: Someone in rural Japan, like a farmer? JET program teacher? Tour guide? Monk? These are so cool, kudos for a great job on them!

  423. Chris T. says:

    You should try reading his manga too (kanojo okarishimasu), its a very fun romantic comedy manga.

  424. gridokun says:

    Watching quintessential quintuplets while working..

    Awesome Sauce!

  425. Eirik Faber says:

    Loved this episode!

  426. EJQ FINDZ says:

    Cool man

  427. Ariel Alonzo says:

    Kanojo okarishimasu is the best hope it gets a anime adaptation

  428. slaiyfershin says:

    Man he is paid very well. I hope his assistant are too, unlike the animator in Asian Boss.

    Also RIP his assistant’s personal life, having to wait till 8pm for even dinner with the boss to start. After work activities are a huge pain when they become obligatory, no matter how nice the work environment.

  429. Mirazu says:

    come on i got a spoiled

  430. Mike L says:

    Great video! I’ve seen other videos on mango creators and often they were underpaid and overworked. But these guys have it good.

  431. sophia sevilla says:

    Loveee all these Day in the Life videos kuya Paolo!! 😊🤩👌👌👌

  432. Whiyu says:

    Reiji has a really nice voice… and it doesn’t befit his appearance at all haha

  433. SlipperyTube says:

    similar to korean work culture.. work insane hours, then go drink and eat ^^
    its so different to western culture
    how do japanese and koreans live so long with that lifestyle ^^

  434. Klark Del Rosario says:

    More of this!!!!!!

  435. Ricky Salazar says:

    Watches video out of general interest stays because its the mangaka of rental girlfriend

  436. Logan says:

    I think these “day in the life” videos are dope. Seriously, no one else is doing something like this and it looks like you have found something unique and original. My only critique would be to have longer interviews with the staff and the head mangaka. Some more in detail backstory would be nice

    • Nor leans says:

      looks like Asian boss has just copied Paolo’s format of ‘day in the life’ ; they had just started it in the korean episodes though.

  437. monkofdark123 says:

    …. Hentai voice actors…. do it. Day in the life.
    Are they just anime voice actors who do the hentai stuff on the side or as a gateway in to the industry?

  438. Sean Brooks says:

    What about his wife & kid??????????

  439. Yusi amelia hidayat says:


  440. TheDiamondDude says:

    6:40 There’s a 22/7 poster on the wall. 22/7 is actually an anime that Miyajima is working on as a writer.

  441. Violet D says:

    after so many requests it’s finally here 😆
    i really like your Day In The Life videos, good job. can’t wait to see the next one

  442. Lp Trace says:

    what is the device name at 02:43 ?

  443. sBurban says:

    This is the guy that makes “Rental Girlfriend”! :0 .

    Nice, thanks for the video!

  444. marcyy says:

    this was a really nice, well-made video- i really enjoyed it!

  445. Matthew Johansen says:

    Do a day in the life of a Host club Host

  446. Fab says:


  447. hugo_ 0.004 says:

    One of my most favorite manga

  448. stavros hiras says:

    Great video!!!

  449. Emil Hultling says:

    Is it just me who thinks it’s annoying that Paolo dubs himself when speaking to the interview subject?

    Just use subtitles for yourself as well.

  450. りな says:

    do anyone know which program the assistant used here? 08:00

  451. Marlon Figueroa says:

    are they responsible for the AKB49 Manga?cool great content asual Sir Paolo 👍

  452. Gustav Barnard says:

    i love this kind of video!!!!!!!!!!!!

  453. Somis The Madman says:

    i think this might have been the most chill one so far. keep it up 😀 really enjoy these ” Day in a life of ” vidoes.

  454. Andrey Zhiltsov says:

    That was one of most interesting from this series! Never knew about mangaka

  455. AK knight says:

    Can anyone tell me why are the girls are wearing a mask ?🤔

  456. Kronos says:

    Everyone in Japan works *so* hard and for *so* long _every_ day.

  457. peppermintvalo says:

    Clearly I’m in the wrong business. But alas I don’t have the talent to be a mangaka! 🙁 I may start checking out his manga though!

  458. ayumizz says:

    Wish you were meeting with One Piece mangaka, more tougher!

  459. Random User says:

    This is by far my favorite episode, but I like the ‘day in the life of a japanese …’ format in general it just gives so much insight and I think you are doing an awesome job Paolo! Can’t wait for the next episode!

  460. Ramón Luis says:

    Absolutely loving these insightful videos Paolo!!!!

    IDEA!!! 💡💡💡 Do you think you could do “Day in the Life of a Professional Japanese Gamer”? In my heart of hearts I’d love to see you chop it up with Daigo Umehara 😍 but I know there have to be others striving to reach his level of notoriety and the business aspect behind the gaming competition has to to be CRAZY.

  461. Abe Blanco says:

    Damn kanojo one of my faves
    What a coincidence

  462. cardsakura says:

    I really like this “A day in the life” series.

  463. Jackie Toong says:

    this is so interesting, great job 😀

  464. Richard Fatkan says:

    The plot sounds wierd but i guarantee you that the story is intersting!!!

  465. Luciana Milano says:

    Sooooo cool, man! Congrats, great editing! Kiss from Burajiru!;)

  466. Mikeztarp says:

    Very cool!
    For those who want to see more of how -the sausage- manga is made, I recommend a manga called Bakuman, by Ooba Tsugumi and Obata Takeshi (the authors of Death Note – although it’s a very different vibe ^^).

  467. Bruce Anthony Gamboa says:

    that RUKA SHIRT!!! <3

  468. Nowori says:

    So this is the cuck that made that shitty ass mc from rental girlfriend

  469. Avalon Phoenix says:

    Quality video. Thank you!

  470. deewonda1952 says:

    I loved this video!! I’ve always wanted to learn about Manga artists for years because I used to draw my own comic book stories back in the day. Thank you, Paolo! These Day in the Life videos are STELLAR! Please keep them coming! Is there one coming for Anime, too?

  471. Dicky Teenz says:

    Really want to know more anything about manga, or anime, or something like that. Nice video 😁

  472. jerome solomon says:

    Please keep it up whit this series, is interesting and funny i never get bored at work when I watch this series! 🤗🤗

  473. TGP 25 says:

    Mangakas when they get caught watching hentai: ” i swear its just a reference for my manga “

  474. Lan Hoàng says:

    just what i was hoping for the other day! Thank you!

  475. NightFore says:

    It looks way more casual life than Bakuman., they’re all so friendly to each other without any tension.

  476. Jonathan Li says:

    Is this what normal mangakas are like. He seems to be really wealthy but this manga doesn’t sound like it’s that popular? How can he afford to have such a nice home and an extra apartment?

  477. You Leh says:


  478. Vanguarded_Heart 117 says:

    >Spends his life on a neat studio and equipment
    >Writes comics about rent-a-GF’s.

    Feels sad man.

  479. Green Bug says:

    Your daily life documentaries are the best, Paolo.

    I don’t like shojo mangas still this mangaka seems to be very skilled. But this guy is so wrong by living apart from his family, LOL.

  480. yanot lei says:

    i love how he draws manga while anime plays at the background.

  481. PulverizerA says:

    When does the poor guy see his family?
    At least he got to spend some quality time with his dog at lunch.

    • DW T says:

      Yeah didn’t Paolo say he only has assistants on Wednesdays since it’s deadline time? The rest of the week he’s working solo so probably more family time after work those days

    • Animepro100 says:

      It’s a “day” in his life, not a week in his life. He had a deadline to complete this day. He probably has a better schedule on other days of the week.

    • 93erso says:

      @Ahiku I think it might just be because of the nature of the video, he wanted privacy for his family. That’s what I like to think, at least.

    • Ahiku says:

      I guess arranged weddings are still pretty common in Japan, so maybe he doesn’t really care if he can’t see them…. ): (Hopefully not…)

    • 93erso says:

      THIS. When he went to dinner with his assistants, all I thought was “wait, what about your family??”

  482. Monir Qasha says:

    “requires complete silence to work”, “working late”
    *Fridge full of beer and a gaming console*
    I love this office/man-cave concept XD

  483. Abhradip Acharya says:

    Isn’t it rude in Japan to eat while walking? Just thought of asking as you said yourself in a video of yours. By the way, I love every video of this series sand the other regulars too.

  484. Peter Pan and Claire の 小旅行 says:

    I like to watch the comic books, and I am curious about the career. Thanks for you to share their life. I thought they draw the paint by using a pen originally. But the truth makes me surprised.

  485. Sakadayumi says:

    Not only he draw “how to rent a girlfriend”
    He also drew AKB49 manga.

  486. Hana Ma says:

    My favorite is the “Day in a Life of” Series 😀

  487. milikoshki says:

    it’s fascinating that he has a family. I’m super curious how that works out, it seems like he never spends time with them!!

  488. Rider Faiz says:

    WOW I like his manga very much. Chizuru banzai!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  489. Hustle 2 Muscle says:

    Ahhhh here’s a good one, a day in the life of a bboy breakdancer!

  490. Rudolf Star says:

    Now you have to do “A day in a life of a Japanese animator”

  491. weiwei li says:

    I like the ‘Day in the Life of a Japan’ ,hoping you can make more video about the serires. Also I am the ‘彼女、お借りします’ manga’s fan.Looking forward to seeing your picture in 118 13 page.

  492. spaghetti guy says:

    This is my favorite series in your channel! please keep on doing this forever and get more insight to show to the world!!

  493. perrytheply says:

    Looks like I’m gonna be a manga artist lol

  494. Tumz says:

    Mann.. im feel poor for this things as a cartoonist :’)

  495. Diane Chaniewski says:

    I really enjoy this “Day in the Life” series!! This is one of the most unique ones. Like most things, you do not realize how much work goes into something that the general public has simple access to. The next time I pick up a manga, I will think of this episode. (Also, I think I will start reading this one! 🙂 ) I hope that he gets to see his wife and kids at some point though, I felt bad about that aspect. 🙁

  496. redhaegar says:

    Nice teeth, Paolo!

  497. SWAD says:

    10:18 pen trick noticed

  498. Higgo91 - TTG says:

    this is so cool! it would be nice to see the daily life of an animator or a light novel writer

  499. Atlacy says:

  500. Tran Khanh says:

  501. Shiro Yukimura says:

    cant w8 for chapter 118 to see your line lmao

  502. Sekti Ginanjar says:

    he is ‘Kanojou Okarimasu ” creator ?

  503. muzikazaposo says:

    I love this video, thx Paolo 😀 Reason more is because I’m following “kanojo okarishimasu” manga, it’s really easy to consume it’s content. It has an amazing art, and one of the thing that is really prominent is how Chizuru and other characters are always dressed fashionable no matter is it in their home environment, or going somewhere outside. I really like the details.

  504. bryan covarrubias says:

    1 monitor was showing gotoubun no hanayome for the whole day.. lol

  517. liopleurodon 155 says:

    Speaking of mangaka, I can recommend the anime “Bakuman”. It’s not widely known, but a very rewarding watch!

  518. Chris Talbot says:

    Love to see a day in the life of a professional wrestler

  519. Marko Senica says:

  523. Golden Trout says:

    Wow this is some good insight into the mangaka life, albeit a more successful one. Thanks for this!

  524. Vinanda Andar Kusuma Atmaja Arifin says:


  525. Shafiksz says:

  530. Abhishek Yadav says:

    Who think this types of videos inspired you by seeing this particular types of videos of Japanese People and their hardwork🙂.Thanks Bro!

  531. rayekasai says:

    Can’t help but wonder what Togashi’s office is like…

    “Meh, maybe next year.”

  532. Kryp toNytz says:

    Yeah, Finally a Mangka, i wish it was Eiichiro Oda(one piece),Koyoharu Gotoge(Demon slayer:Kimetsu no yaiba),Nakaba Suzuki(Nanatsu no taizai) or the other famous mangaka.

    4:48 Maou sama retry in the background xd

    • Ducky says:

      That anime was a load of shit. Man, what a waste of time. Can’t believe how terrible the story was.

  541. joker81216 says:

    I love what’s inside the fridge

  542. C says:

    The Japanese seem so formal but they also seem super honorable. It must be nice to be around people with such dignity.

  543. CrossXaberS says:

    Oh Rental Girlfriend! I want everyone to be happy but harem end feels kinda wrong.
    Anyway, great video. This is very informative. Think I’ve heard about artists using nunchuck controller as shortcut before but this is the first time I see somebody using one.

    Can you guys go check how Miura Kentarou’s doing? LOL. I hope he finish berserk while I’m still around.

  544. Aquas Thicc says:

  560. Renegade Aotearoa says:

    All your content is awesome but this was super interesting!!

  589. Maria Teresa Jimenez says:


  590. Wra8h says:

    As usual, amazing. Your series is one of a kind on YouTube. Neither done ‘too professionally’ where it’s distant and purely factual nor is it plainly a vlog. Keep the good work!

  591. MiTwo羋兔 says:

    Kanajo Okarishimashu is not all that great. MC is an absolute idiot but damn can he draw the girls well. At this point I’m so deep in the story I cannot stop. I just want to see where the train goes.

  617. ivan calvin says:

    i read his manga, it’s so great!!

  618. hesogelo says:

    Damn he must’ve gone through a lot before building up his career that it is today, mangakas usually get worked to the bone and their pay is not that much but dude is living it up

  619. Oisif says:

    so this is the man that made Kanojo, Okarishimasu….
    and damn i never knew even seating formation has a rule around it…. i guess when youre japanese you need to always know and realize your position in society huh

    Kanojo okarishimasu right? Cool dude. He even goes to try rental girlfriend.

  654. Rahul Gaha says:

    I’m astonished that very few people know about Kanojo, Okarishimasu. I mean it was very popular when it started. The art work is great too. Though people will have hard time adopting to plot.

  655. Aceras Fire says:

    he look so young for 34 yrs old. im 23 and i look like 28 =.= you know college……… but damn i want those CARDS.. 13:31 where can i buy one ?

    Recommended anime: “Bakuman”
    : To get more insights about the life / work pressures of a mangaka

    • Johan Kurniawan says:

      @skllzr That is true actually, a lot of my friend know about popular anime like My Hero Academia or Tokyo Ghoul but not actually know Bakuman. It’s a great anime 🙂

    • skllzr says:

      Honestly…Bakuman is one of the best anime what i have ever watched, yet it’s really underrated. :/

    • Ferdinand Miles says:

      @wx I mean I watched BAKUMAN the creator of Death Note 😅

    • wx says:

      @Ferdinand Miles Sore ga Seiyuu! which is about the voice acting industry is also interesting, not sure if you watched that as well. Although I find it less detailed both plot and information-wise compared to Shirobako.

    • Ferdinand Miles says:

      Done watching

      The creator of Death Note

  658. lostinhorizon says:

    Thank you thank you thank you. You are God sent for these series. I really love this ❤️❤️
    I hope you someday do the A Day in the Life of A Geisha in Kyoto, A Day in the Life of a Sumo Wrestler, A Day in the Life of Seiyuu, A Day in the Life of Train/Shinkansen Driver… 🤣👏👏👏👏👏

  661. Brigitte Elsayed says:

    What a nice video. I see why they choose to stay in their job for so many years. It seems like a nice place to work and a nice community.

  674. commentator passing by says:

    wow,so he got 82$ for 1 paper?I thought that is cool,but then i remembered,art is really hard to do,even if you have great imagination,my sister was paid about 200$ for per 1 illustration for companie’s business needs,but this is what she got after around 5-7 years studying and orders are not that often,it’s not a conveyor,more over usually clients don’t know what they want,so it’s rlly big problem for artist/mangaka e.t.c,i think most of them do it not for money,but for the soul.

  692. Jacqu J says:

    This is impressive.

    You must have some serious pull to get a published mangaka from Kodansha.

  693. YXXREM says:

    oh okay it’s a day in a life of mangaka, what could be better than this?.. it’s miyajima reiji

    Thank you for this video! Its very interesting how it was changed/ I was visiting Takehiko Inoue sensei studio and several publishers. 10 years ago everything was drawn in a paper. office was in a tons of paper! Now its very interesting how mangakas working on tablets, what is make work more fast and comfy. ^^ How about make day of animator(saff of anime studio?) Im very curius how they working in modern . Thank you!

    Day in a life videos are the reason i am subscribed. 🙏🙏

  712. Being Japan says:

    Its interesting to hear two of his assistants will stick with him. He must be paying them well, and it shows in their attitude and manner. Anime/manga artists are some of the poorly paid people in Japan. They do it for the passion of the art.

  713. Karlok says:

    I love this serie! Thanks for your hard work!

  714. Opu says:

    His drawings are beautiful! I will definitley check out his manga

  715. Alibek Murataliev says:

    Man, incredible video😍😱

  716. Double X says:

    Still want to create that manga now? When I hold an omnibus in my hands, I very minutely get the idea of what it takes to create that many pages. You will toil, quite possibly, to your death, and maybe never finish your work, completely. This medium is no joke from the creator’s side of things.

  717. lost says:

    Hey I don’t wanna be rude but there’s something I notice in some of your videos. You always make the time stamp say 12pm even though it’s 12am. Just wanted to let you know

  718. Riggyuh says:

    anyone know the anime in the background at 4:48?

  719. Ashitaka1110 says:

  734. Hop E says:


  735. Nodoshikuru Aridomeri says:

    Could you upload more videos like this, I wanna see how other mangakas are like pleaseeee

  736. MebiAnime says:

    Your Japan Day in the Life videos have been on individuals who seem to have better working lives compared to what we usual hear of Japanese workers. It might seem like an inaccurate representation, but at the same time, to me they also represent an optimism that yes, there are indeed those who seem to have work-life balance.

    Also this ep is sick, read up that series awhile back and forgot about it, maybe it’s time to continue reading it. Many thanks for your videos!

  737. Ahmet says:

    Yes finally a mangaka
    Lol read that chapter today before I watched this episode 😀

    That man was eating while walking. I heard that’s a no-no in Japan.

  747. Tushar Panthri says:

    Just finished reading Kanojo Okarishimasu. It’s a good read, light romance just what I like. I am amazed to see how much efforts go into making it. Would love to see my favorite mangaka Eichiro Oda’s workplace as well.

  748. fluxgate says:

  751. EmpressNoriko says:

    Wow things have changed now that the drawing is done digitally. One of my favorite manga is Bakuman which follows 2 boys/young men, an artist and writer, as they struggle to create a hit manga. It seems that drawing digitally has made things a little easier. I guess we need Bakuman 2.0, the digital era. Thanks for the interesting glimpse into how one of my favorite forms of entertainment is created. Hmmm wonder how many mangaka still draw on paper?

  752. John Chang says:

    seems like a good job if you are good at it.

  788. Beautiful Wanderess says:

    awesome episode! haha he seems like he enjoyed hobbies and work! and a cool. It seems easy but it takes a lot of hardwork and creativity after watching anime Manga and his assistants,( check it out guys its funny!) . Arigato gosaimas for everyone showing us. Also, can you feature a day in life of a seiyu ( japanese voice actors) or animators/anime? 🙏

  796. Chris Hanson says:

    Really awesome! Was watching terrace house and one of them is a manga artist, was always curious about the subject since I can remember and that exposure tied really well into your vid which cast a much wider net and it was really informative. Love it!

  797. John Walker says:

    I really enjoyed this episode. It is good to see how the Japanese work ethos translates to different industries.

  798. pary16 says:

    Does he ever see his family…?

  799. Momomin says:

    After watching the other episodes in this series where people go to sleep at 2AM and wake up at 5AM and seem to never be at home, i thought a mangaka would have a day like that or worse, but I was wrong lol glad to see his day is not a crazy packed as some other peoples’, this is waaay better for his health. and the work environment he created looks so cool nice!! props to him 🙂

  800. Kevin Dang says:

    these are awesome! its interesting to see the lifestyle of someone else thats across the world from me just living the same way i do, albeit with a different taste. I hope you can do more occupations that people don’t really know about, like an engineer construction worker or a teacher or a seiyuu! lol

  801. Dino Saurio says:

    You ask great questions! Thank you.

  802. SKOENIOS 01 says:

    I’m a reader of kanojo okarishimasu. So this video was super interesting to me. Please do more of them

  803. Fauzi Farid Muttaqien says:

    Acctually for a mangaka, his time schedule is pretty lenient, many mangaka have little sleep time mostly for the one who still use paper base drawing and with high detail drawing. Number of his assistant is also pretty low, for a weekly published manga.

    Manga he draw have quite nice story and romcom, if his manga is licenced in your country, please consider to buy it to support his creation.

  804. Benny says:

    Can we get a Day in the Life of Paolo filming a Day in the Life?

    He could be 90 years old but look like 50.
