    Thanks in advance for the translating.

    Btw, should I edit one post or post as I find?
    Great! I appreciate your help.

    If you want to edit one post or post as you find the mangaka is up to you.

    Oda was the assistant for Shinobu Kaitani, Masaya Tokuhiro AND Nobuhiro Watsuki.

    • Tetsuo Hara (Hokuto no Ken) Masanori Morita (Rokudenashi Blues - Rookies)

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    Yoshihiro Togashi -> Naoko Takeuchi
    It is only for a while though. And it happened after Naoko completed Sailor Moon... I heard she quit because mangaka assistant's life is tough.


    Iwashiro Toshiaki (Psyren) -> Tamura Ryuhei (Beelzebub)

    Yet another mangaka whose assistant become more popular/successful that he is.

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    Kinda suprised nobody linked into this website yet: http://www.ktr.to/Comic/assistant.html

    (I always hate when I take on a project then stubble across that one website which can really speed this whole thing up)

    It's not broken up by magazine (or era), so it's kinda hard to work through, but an English version of that would be very helpful.
    That huge Hiroyuki Takei fan, who's has been around for a long, long time....

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    @andyislands: Thank you so much! I'm sure there are A LOT more mangaka left to cover so this project is not quite done yet.

    The next step is to organize these mangaka/assistants into categories, but that's for me to worry about so keep on posting!

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    Oh, it looks like I am late after everyone posted so many mangaka and their assistants.


    Oh well, I guess I can help out with something else then, I can see what I can find but it is hard after everyone posted so much.

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    So if I understand this diagram correctly: http://www.ktr.to/Comic/assistant.png
    Then Kishimoto wasn't assistant under any well known Mangaka (or at least not amongst one of this list which seems potentially Shounen exclusive to me? Dunno, there are only few English names) and hat at least five assistants who later published their own works?

    Perhaps they won't give him so many assistants anymore and that's why he's continuisly complaining about having to do so much work

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    It's not shounen-exclusive but Jump-exclusive (with non-Jump gray-colored)
    In the site, there are also links to Magazine and Sunday assistants diagram.


    Finished translating names for the Jump assistants diagram.

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    I updated the original post to include all the mangaka and their assistants in one thread. For simplicity I categorized them according to the head mangaka's demographic. It means that even though Mochizuki Akira's assistants (and their assistants) work primarily with shonen, I placed her chain under shoujo because that's her demographic.

    We still don't have any examples for josei, and we need more shoujo artists!

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    Miura Kentaro's (Berserk) assistant, Mitsuhiku Kyuji, seemingly just started with Ookami no Kuchi: Wolfsmund (thx to Kaiten for telling us )
    Also has a rather similar scenario, like Berserk it's a medieval european one.
