^_^ 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.

Needs more.

I really liked this. I just wish it had more. I'm very good at drawing the head, face, and hair as it is. Body's not so much. Hands for me are real easy for me to turn out. I just wish you had another tutorial for guys body's. What's the point of being able to draw the head and hands if there is nothing to attach it to. My body's always come out very misshapen and just look horrible. I did a little better with drawing the women's body. But still needs work. I hope u update this app and put more tutorials on it.

It’s a very good app, don’t listen to others

I saw some bad reviews on this app, so I decided to take a look at the app to see how it’s like (tl;dr at the very bottom)

First off: the tutorials, while they aren’t completely step-by-step, they give very good advice on how to enhance and detail your drawings. They also give general details to look out for, which are fundamental to help give basic structure to your drawings

I took a quick look at the videos and books, and to be honest they’re merely entertainment and advertising, respectively

Additionally, the “draw” section is quite unnecessary since you can literally practice with pencil and paper...

(TL;DR) Overall though, I think the app is good for helping give detail and further structure to your drawings; it’s not really supposed to give you a complete course, rather it’s just there to help a bit. I actually bought the book “How to Draw Manga: Basics and Beyond!” recently and from what I can tell, the book is TONS more helpful and I’m looking forward to using it!
