^_^ Featuring Apple Pencil support! ^_^


Download Manga University 101 and start drawing! That’s right — you can draw right inside the app, using your finger, an Apple Pencil, or a third-party stylus. Then, share your art by texting or emailing it, or save it to the camera roll.

Manga University 101 was made in Japan by the art professionals at Manga University, publisher of the worldwide bestselling “How to Draw Manga” series of books.

We created this app so you can enjoy all of our drawing tutorials on your iOS devices. Now you can learn manga and anime techniques wherever you are!

Manga University 101 has a full-featured digital drawing toolbox, complete with multi-width pens, pencils and markers in a rainbow of colors.

The app also comes with a complete catalog of Manga University books (with links so you can get them on the Apple Books store); our popular gallery of YouTube videos (including the "How to Draw Manga" series featuring Mosoko Miyatsuki); and news and interviews from our Tokyo Campus Blog.


If you enjoy our app, please be sure to tell your friends about it. We’d also love for you to rate and review Manga 101 on the App Store ^_^

What’s New

Version 3.0.1

iPhone and iPod touch users can draw immediately with a finger when opening a drawing canvas. No need to toggle from Pencil to Finger input. Pencil drawing remains the default setting for iPad users.

We also fixed a bug that caused the Draw tab to put up an alert if the device was offline.

It should go without saying that no manga characters were harmed in the making of this app.

Ok. this app is kinda just😬bad. I have three reasons why....first of all why doesn't it have more than two colors? Second of all it actually isn't giving us a how to. Actually quite the opposite!( literally nothing!they are just telling us, "put more detail in it then it's easy!") Lastly the app gives the picture examples so much detail in the how to guide, but we actually don't get any of those materials we need for the actual drawing in the sketchpad. Oh and I also forgot, just like the colors it only gives us TWO and only two drawing options... writing and erasing! I don't want to be harsh but,😐in other words this app is an obstruction.

Great, but room for improvement

I opened up the app and dove right in ( I personally never had it crash) its a great app, but it needs to be updated with the hair pictures actually there, and you need to go in depth on the male body. the tutorial really opened up my limits on drawing. I went from ehhh on anime/manga to beastly. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a tutorial that will help you, whether you don't have te slightest idea of how to draw this, or if you already got a lot down. Best free tutorial app you can get.

In short- give the app an update on hair pics and male body and it's 5 stars
