    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    Does anyone know if Takeshi Obata trained an apprentice or had any assistants that became successful? The only reason I ask is because THIS MANGA has art that is strikingly similar IMO. Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this question.

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    When I searched the artist's name (Kanazawa Nobuaki/金沢伸明) and Obata (小畑健), there was no mention of the former being an assistant. The resemblance is definitely there in the artwork so I wouldn't be surprised if he was inspired.

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    For my brazilian blog, I made a image, after some research, with the relations between some mangakas.
    Here's the link: http://mangatologia.wordpress.com/20...akas/#more-408 (it's all in portuguese, but the image is self-explanatory)

    (For partners, I even consider one-shots)
    (And yes, I know I forgot Ode-Watsuki relation)

    Yeah you forgot Oda-Watsuki and also Shimabukuro worked as an assistant for Watsuki. And some green between Oda and Mikio Itou and Takei. IIRC, they're called the Watsuki Gang. But meh, that visual is great.

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    I was checking out Amano Akira's Japanese wiki page when I noticed that she has quite a number of assistants who have/had their works serialized:
    • Sakaki Kenji (Vol 1 to 16): Enigma
    • KAITO (Vol 6 to 39): Cross Manage
    • Saizaki Ren (Vol 11 to 16): Zetsuen no Tempest
    • Aimoto Shou (Vol 13 to 15): Hokenshitsu no Shinigami

    Three of them were published in WSJ (or is in Cross Manage's case), and one has been successful with an anime airing right now. This track record is pretty impressive imo! Amano must have been a good "tutor".

    Re: Mangaka Assistants

    Out of Amano's assitants I'd say that Aimoto Shou is my favourite when it comes to artwork (I love her style), and Sakaki Kenji being my favourite in terms of story (even though the latter portion of Enigma's story was confusing and badly executed).
