How to Profit from the World of Japanese Animation

By Amuro Reyes Subscribe to RSS | April 19th 2012 | Views:

Except for Japanese and Americans, not everyone knows about the world of Japanese animation and how they can possibly profit from.

The only ones are those who are passionate about watching and drawing. Other than just comic books, there are graphic books, magazines, VCDs, DVDs, toys, computer and video games as well as T-shirts, mugs, mousepads, stationary and other merchanise. These are what people are spending thousands and even millions of dollars on be it consumer or franchise.

One major difference between Japanese and American in their comics brand is that Japanese are much more hardworking and willing to go the extra mile in their marketing and creativity. Those products I just mentioned are the best examples. Ultimately because of this, their products have greater demand and attracted interest from Americans which resulted in their alliance for over 30 years.

Think of American comics like Superman, Spiderman, Ironman, Incredible Hulk and Batman. Then think of Japanese comics like 5 Star Lovers, Gundam, Macross, Masked Riders and Votoms. In name and reputation, they have equal standing.

But in merchanising and branding, it is obvious that Japanese have cutting edge which is precisely why Americans offered to work with them than the other way round.

From six years old til now, I have among the loyal followers who still enjoy watching animation, reading comics, learning to draw, collecting merchanise and playing video games. Especially when they added CG and 3D effects on all their entertainment works.

But 2 significant animation series still stood out the best to me. Robotech and Transformers which are released in 1985 and 1986 consecutively are both results of American and Japanese joint venture partnership.

Robotech is the trilogy of 3 original Japanese animation series Macross, Southern Cross and Mospeada plus their bonus and uncompleted series The Sentinels while Transformers is of 2 robot races - Autobots and Decepticons spanning over 5 generations in an exhibition show on Sentosa within my country Singapore recently.

However, loving and learning to draw manga are 2 different matters entirely. For learning to draw takes a lot of time and dedication.

Other than just comics, you not only need to invest your time in DVDs, graphic books and magazines teaching you how to draw but in basic materials like A4 drawing block type paper, merchanical pencils, markers, colored pencils, brushes, poster colors and filler trays. That is the traditional way.

The modern way is using ebooks, digital video courses, software tools that not only accelerate your learning curve but improve your drawing ability much faster. But whichever way you choose, investing your time and money is still a must if you ever want to master Japanese animation.
