Koshin Manga Dojo & Kuroshio Manga Taisho

   Do you regularly read the Kochi Newspaper? Each month, they have a manga column, called “Koshin Manga Dojo,” to which readers can contribute their own manga. This special column was started in February 1987 for amateur manga writers who wanted to put their skills to the test.

  Since August 2001 winning works are printed in the newspaper once a month, after being judged by the professional manga writer and “Koshin Manga Dojo” leader, Riki Kusaka. Submissions never fail to be interesting, dealing with unique themes such as politics, sport, seasons, and daily life.Whether you love writing manga, or are only thinking about trying your hand at the art, why not submit your work? You may win and your manga would be featured in the Kochi Newspaper!
