I have always loved manga ; from dragon-ball z , Naruto,and bleach to even fruit basket . However , as great of an art form that manga is, it does come with some flaws .
here is my list of areas of improvement that manga artists and readers around the world should be conscious of :
1) MANGA SHOULD BE FULLY COLOR (...sort of).
manga books almost always come in black and white , which is great. However, I would absolutely spend a few more cash to see fully HD color mangas. The main excuse of mangakas and manga companies for years has been the cost of color printing is to high. This is 2013 ,we mostly read online manga from our phone, computer and ipad .I feel that full color will increase our reading experience and we will notice all of the artistic details that many mangas are known for. We need to see full color mangas , at least have the option to get one. Therefore , the manga I'm currently working on will be FULLY COLORED.
2) EXTEND THE CHARACTERS STORY-LINE
Manga publisher have this habit of ending great manga series and not build on the foundations. Example : marvel comics have, among many things, the x-men comic book series ; however , I could always read an entire comic book series base on wolverine , who is a member of the x-men. In the Naruto series, i have to wait like 2,000 episodes before I learned about kakashi's childhood . There are no kakashi volume 1. If my manga ever reach 10 successful volume ( im totally dreaming here) , all popular characters will have their independent manga volume.
3) INTERTWINE THE SIMILAR STORY LINE
The best mangas are ending their series simply because they have exhausted their story line ( ... which is sad, i'm running out of good manga to read) . Every now and then , mangakas or publishing companies should mix up their similar manga plots . Example; imagine some characters from the Bleach manga confront Light Yagami and his shinigami in some new plot twist . That could spur a new line of manga, make both the bleach series and death note series run a little longer . Marvel comic does this all the time . More recently , with its Avenger series.
There are many more thing i see that might improve the manga world . What do you think?
