Meet the judges : Here we have comment from the man who has witnessed the hottest period of Manga, responsible for some of the most loved Manga of our time!
It’s been over 60 years since the manga authors of Osamu Tezuka’s generation developed manga into a accepted form of expression. Historically, manga was the storyboards that showed the flow of action for movies. The dialogue was minimized and any words that were included were the most basic. Manga’s unique ability to convey situations and emotions without relying heavily on words led to its widespread popularity in Japan and beyond. In some ways, manga may be a universal language. This is the idea that was the foundation for the Silent Manga Audition. We hope you will enjoy exploring the expressive nature of manga alongside all of the other authors throughout the world.Even he could not estimate the fantastic reaction we received from around the world, for the first year round of Silent Manga Audition! Let’s blow his mind away once again, for the second year running!
