Introduction to “Silent Manga”

Posted on Posted in SILENT MANGA GUIDE

If you are new to the concept of Silent Manga, here is a quick guide to the concept.
If a manga had to rely solely on words to express its story rather than the visual aspect, it would be an illustration, not a manga.

“No Words, No Story ;- Just darn good PERFORMANCE”

A manga is like the storyboard for a silent movie.
Words are extremely limited, and usually rely on minimal everyday conversations.
If a manga had to rely solely on words to express its story rather than the visual aspect, it would be an illustration, not a manga.

The Silent Manga Audition is about seeking out and rewarding Manga’s that live up to their maximum potential!

Entries are judged solely by the manga artist’s most important tool, “performance”.

If you love manga and have considered drawing manga, but were previously discouraged by the language barrier, this is your chance to make your mark in one of Japan’s manga magazines!
