Interested In Manga Review Videos?

Tue Jan 24, 2017, 8:54 AM
Although I am finishing up FaLLEN Vol. 2 for the next couple of months, I have been considering doing videos for youtube besides what I do on my Patreon. I have hit a video review goal on my Patreon but haven't had time for it since I was globetrotting so much last year, but starting in the Spring I should be able to work on one.

I was wondering how much interest you guys would have in me talking about published manga from a creator's point of view? I don't want to be on camera, so I'll probably have an animated (badly) version of me instead, and a few live action shots of my hands drawing or something but mostly shots of the manga and artwork.

I don't want this to focus too heavily on making fun of bad comics, like a lot of movie review shows do these days, but I will not be afraid to point out problem areas, either. I just noticed there are very few quality manga review videos compared to anime or movie reviews, so it's been on my mind for a while.

Manga series would be judged on four areas: story, characters, artwork, and overall themes/presentation. 

Do you guys have any interest in such a review series? Or is there a reason there aren't many manga review videos...

My name is Brooke, and I live in Japan where I draw comics for a living. I have worked as a professional manga assistant off and on but now I'm focused on my webcomic FaLLEN, which has been really rewarding. I also do a lot of freelance translating and artwork as well as publishing independently for comic shows, and I even did a quick stint as a storyboard artist for a kid's show in the US.

Check out my webcomic/webmanga FaLLEN! I work so hard on it ;_;

dA is a pretty great community! I think they are a lot friendlier than, say, Tumblr or some other places.
