SILENT MANGA AUDITION® is proud to announce an exciting new feature called… “Ask a Mangaka”! Starting from September, we are offering YOU the chance to ask a professional Japanese manga artist those burning questions!

What’s it like to work as a professional manga artist in Japan? How do you get started? Are the hours really brutal? Do you ever sleep?!

Introducing the new “Ask a Mangaka” feature, the SMA editorial team will choose the 5 most interesting questions submitted by YOU the creators, to send over to a professional Japanese mangaka each month to answer!


An “Arte” anime adaptation is currently in the works, too!

We are excited to announce that Kei Ohkubo-sensei, creator of the hugely successful Arte will take time out of her busy schedule to “kick-start” this amazing opportunity, so please stay tuned to our various social media channels as we prepare to open the “hotline” between you and our guest creator! The 5 best questions chosen will be asked to Ohkubo-sensei directly with her responses being published later in September. More information regarding this exciting new feature will be revealed in the near future, so be sure to stay tuned!


In the meantime, please click on the banner below to check out the work of Ohkubo-sensei, and get those questions ready!!
