Manga Poverty

This year I translated another book: "Manga Poverty" by Sato Shuho, a famous manga artist in Japan. This is a nonfiction novel about his experiences with the manga industry and battles with Japan's ruthless publishers. Not only is it a quick, exciting read filled with Sato's unique wit and unusual experiences, but it also contains a wealth of information as to what it's like to be a manga artist in Japan. If you're interested in manga, publishing, or how artists in Japan live, then I highly recommend it!

Below the Japanese are links to the different E-book formats. Happy reading!
