Hello all you Anime Vice lunatics! Are you preparing to risk everything by moving to Japan to create manga? Well, I'm not (yet). Especially since I suck at drawing. But if you have the talent, the passion, and a dream..it still may not be enough. Nothing is easy, according to the creator of Peepo Choo and MBQ, Felipe Smith. ANN had two videos posted (one in English and one in Spanish) of an interview with Mr. Smith (no, not that one) about his advice for wanting to create manga in Japan as a foreigner. As your everyday anime fan I cannot say anything better than the man himself so you can watch the interview here. Videos are courtesy of Marc Baernabe from mastersofmanga.com.
