Make your own manga with ComiPo!
The next gen manga software!

ComiPo! is a revolutionary new software application that allows anyone to make high quality comics and manga. Users can easily create their own unique stories and situations simply by choosing and posing one of the 3D characters included with ComiPo! The program also offers over 100 unique body poses and facial expressions to choose from, along with many background images, items, sound effects, word balloons... Everything needed to make a visually impressive and professional looking comic come to life.

Posing 3D Characters
Drag and drop a character from the "3D character" menu! Select a pose and face from the templates. There are over 100 poses and faces to choose from! They are categorized by the character's emotions, so it's simple to choose the right expression for any situation!

Changing Camera Angles
The character model is 3D data, so you can pose the character from any angle just by dragging the red circle.

Background Images
You can import data, such as a picture you took with a camera, and then use it as a background image.

Balloons
You can choose from many different kinds of word balloons and thought balloons.

Comic Marks & Sound Effects
Additionally, you can use icons called Comic Marks. You can show the character's feelings by adding Comic Marks and Sound Effects. There are many Sound Effects in the assets menu. Various Japanese Sound Effects are available too!

Effect Lines
Drag & drop an Effect Line from the assets menu. You can make a dynamic panel instantly! Effect Lines can be used as balloons to make it look like a monologue is taking place.

Character Customization
You can create your own original character easily by selecting items such as hairstyle, clothing, eye color and accessories. Customize your own unique characters and add them to your manga!

Judging by the other comments some people expected the program to magically create a manga for them without any effort on their part. That is simply impossible. That said there are are a few cons to this:
Cons:
-Not enough furniture items even with the DLCes.
-DLCes don't come out often.

But that's as far as the negatives go. Apart from that Manga Maker Comipo is EXACTLY what it promises to be, allowing you to create wonderful images in a matter of minutes. The only limitation is your imagination!

As much as I love to recomend this I simply cant.
the program shows great promise. but the lack of moddels and clothing options is simply to great.
you cant really make a comic until you buy more dlc.
so far in the base software there are no house or background options like making streets or homes.
atleast not that I found.
I also found the lack of tuturials anoying but not hard to figgure out if you are used to these kinds of programs.
if you really want to buy this.
I suggest you wait for 90% Discount as you will have to buy dlc aswell to make it worth your while.
hope this review helps.

A pretty solid program for those who can't draw and would like to make their own manga, those who want to do something quick for their blogs and such and... yes, even those who can draw a little but aren't good with paging, effects, inking and such (Like me). But I advise against getting it at full price without at least one or two expansions, for the program alone is only limited at school setting and clothing. At least the casual wear expansion is mandatory.
Aside for that, it's pretty easy to use, and once you learn a few tricks (Deviantart is chunk full of tutorials, extra resources and such), you can pretty much do whatever you want with it.

So I got this game for 10 bucks, for that price its not bad. But for 50 its a joke. The game has few updates compared to rpg maker. right now all u can do is make a manga in a school , with bascily teenages all with one body shape and same skin compextion.

Yeah this is my first ever review....

The program is really easy to use but it is also
really limited, when you start up the program
you get this cool comic that teach you the basic of the progam
and you learn how to quickly put someting that looks like
a comic.

if you thinking about getting this program i recomend you waiting
for it to come on sale since i really belive it's not wort the full price.
even tho it's is limited and you create something really simple
funny and dumb thing.

And that is just a bad example of what you can create using this program..

i would recommend this software
but the price is just to high so im giving this a negative score

This is a really good software when you get use it. If you need help learning there are a lot of tutorials on YouTube and deviantart. If you're not that good at drawing or are too lazy to draw I really recommend it. :)

I could draw better than this and I could create a comic by hand faster than I could use this program. I am not an artist. I'm just some dude who enjoys writing. I could go as far to say I'm one of thoose ♥♥♥♥♥♥-bags who consider themselves a writer, when they haven't published anything. Either way, do not get this it is a watse of money. don't get it.

Not many options here really. The number of clothing items and the limited selection of ... everything really makes this less of a manga maker unless you want to make a very simple school life type manga.

This is however very useful for planning out scenes that you plan to rehand draw later, as you can quickly setup a comic page with poses and simplified placeholder characters, to see how it would look before sitting down to draw it.

ComiPo! is a great program, easy to pick up but patience is needed to master. I am having fun with it...lots of possibilities. There is one thing though...the lack of content from the main program and the dlc... lots of things missing and i don't think the dlc prices are justified yet, it needs some work...how can you not have any winter clothing when you have summer? Not enough casual clothes and hair styles.....It need improvement on the available content side...But still a great software.

The program is pretty basic. I've read other reviews that have said similar things, but I was still pretty neutral until I looked around the program myself. I agree with them. I bought this game for 10 bucks and I don't see how this game is even worth the full $50 it originally sells for.

Character editing - It is extremely limited and not very diverse. There is no adjusting the eye sizes, no making different body types, and no changing skin tones. As far as it goes towards making characters with unique physical features, you're out of luck. No busty heroines, no dudes with scars, no people with rippling muscles... I can't even make my characters look all tanned up from a vacation in Hawaii. All the characters look pretty generic. A saving point is that 3D mods like hair styles and facial expression can be imported from external sources, but the character-making feature still leaves a lot to be desired.

Character poses - There are somewhat of a variety of making characters pose differently, which is good if you're an artist and want some reference. All the models are set in stone, only allowing you to change angles from which you view them. You can't adjust the poses manually.

2D models - There isn't much to work with. Luckily, images can be imported.

As I said earlier, it can be used for basic things. Maybe it can be used for a project or presentation, maybe it can be used as a ref for drawing. It's not a very compelling program to use otherwise, at least for me.

A tool running images under .CPD images, giving individuals models to use, pose, and edit their emotions on each scene. As "Manga maker," you can effectively make scenes like comic strips out of a manga... With color. It is effective, compared to tools where you physically have to draw each character, but Manga maker does fall a bit short, having only a thin ammount of characters to choose from. You can also set the background with an image from your files, either it being dumb, or relevant is up to you.

I do recommend buying this software if you really dream to build your own comic, but not at its full price. The lack of character customization and of models available makes ComiPo! feel more like a demo than the real deal - there are DLC and mods that can kinda fix this, though. Kinda. Nevertheless, its interface is easy to master and the level of possibilities with the contrasting limited dummies is astonishing high.
Get it as soon as it is on sale.

This software is pretty decent, if you want to scrap some quick comics to show to friends for fun. Otherwise, the limited poses, clothing, and eye/hairstyles makes this not suitable for serious comic making (besides, I'd assume you'd command decent artistic skills if you wanted to make a serious comic anyways).

This is a purchase you should make if it is on sale, and if you know you're gonna make lots of comics...for fun. :)

It's a very excellent, fun progam to play around with. There's so many ways you can use this software creatively, if you have the know-how to use it. and it's already easy to learn how to use this progam.

Plus, it has a growing steady support group where you can find custom downloads such as clothes, hair, etc to customize your character even more.

However.... I do agree with others that the oringal progam isn't worth the price it's at. only buy when it's on sale... otherwise you might feel like you overpaid for such a simple progam. I orignally got this progam for 8 dollars, which is why I can still enjoy it and not feel like I got ripped off.

I wish I had read the forum for this program first, teaches me. This guy summarize what I would like to say so I just quote it here instead of adding curses every second phrase.

Edit: Extensive downloadable content is at time being.... not existing. There is a few downloadable crap items on their webpage... but as a steam subscriber, you dont have access to them, so, their not available atall.

Quote from forum (Poster: Not a bear)
Do NOT buy this program! Massive ripoff and extremely limited!
Let me be straight with you, I bought this program from the official site shortly after it came out years ago for $50. It was a gigantic waste of money.

Here's the deal. First off, the program is insanely limited. You are given virtually no freedom whatsoever to design or pose your characters. By default the ONLY outfits are school uniforms in only a couple colors and identical styles. There's maybe less than 10 different hair styles per gender and only a handful of hair and eye colors. The poses for your characters are fixed and you cannot freely move them at all, and there's only a few dozen poses to work with.

There's also a problem with layering. For example, if you wanted two characters to hug each other... well, you can't, because every character is on it's own layer. You cannot pose two characters "together" and have them wrap their arms around each other or something. There's also no real guideline for perspective either so it's really hard to measure characters' positions if they're not at roughly the same distance in the background.

The backgrounds, comic effects and the like are all acceptable. Very little to complain about there. Aside from the fact that there's quite a few backgrounds that simply do not match with the character designs as they're basically just photos that have been run through photoshop filters to look more animated.

But there's more problems. For example the text input has no option to center your text, so all of your text must be manually centered. The program is also extremely slow and takes a long time to load pages and export things even if you have no custom assets on the page. Speaking of custom assets, there's a 3D model importing feature, but it only allows models done in a very specific format and in my experience, half the time they don't import properly and either come out incomplete or outright invisible.

But possibly the worst part of the entire program is the DLC and lack of updates. Here's an interesting fact - the Japanese version came out well over a year before the English version did, and when the English version did come out, it launched with LESS CONTENT than the day 1 Japanese version did. Their excuse was that the English version was cheaper, so they didn't want the Japanese people to just download the English version. They felt it was more appropriate to give the foreigners an outdated product. It was SEVERAL MONTHS with absolutely NO updates to the program before we even got what was available AT LAUNCH for the Japanese version. Of course, by then, the Japanese version was more than a year and a half ahead of the English version in updates and features. I would not doubt that this has continued to be the case.

But it gets worse. The Japanese version had several extra packs of free props to insert into your scenes released prior to the English launch. Several of these did make it into the English release for free, however they actually had the nerve to charge foreigners extra for some of them. When they first launched this pack, it was $15, which again, cost nothing to the Japanese users.

Then there's all the other DLC. If you want to make ANYTHING besides a generic school life series in precisely one single outfit, then they expect you to shell out extra money for crap that should have been in the program from the beginning for free. Well, then again, you can't make anything beyond generic school life series. You've got packs of more school uniforms, some casual clothes, some swimsuits, and stuff like that. And they expect you to pay extra for all of it. It's a ripoff, plain and simple, and even worse is that you get very little for the outrageous prices of the packs. A couple new outfits and a couple colors per pack. I don't know how much they run for these days, but they were about $15-$20 when they came out. For each one. And there was like 5 or 6 of them. On top of the $50 program.

In summary, DO NOT BUY THIS PROGRAM. It's too limited to be of any use, you will be mocked for using it and no one will take any of your comics seriously, and it's just plain a complete ripoff and not worth the money at all. Avoid at all costs.

There's very limited options in this software, I just got it hopping for good refrence poses, but apperently they're not customizeable and they're preset. Which really dissapointed me, Though the only thing I find use for it for is poses and refrences to brush up your manga / anime art skills or for trying to set up mock enviroments, but yeah its not really recommended considering there's very little customizing.

It's a fine program with many limitations, but may not be useful for everyone, here's an extended review for the potential costumer and hopefully feedback for the devs.

ComiPo by it's own grounds is very limited, you can't edit the character's height, proportions, width, etc. so you'll never see old people looking old, nor a younger character looking younger from the rest, so you've got all cookie cutter models, you can't even adjust parameters such as eye size and such (I wanted to adjust the chin and cheek width so badly but I can't).

There's not many customization options, there's some very limited set of accsesories and hair styles, so the combinations end up very limited, you can't customize the colors of items or clothing either (altough there's some very nice filters for the final images), so far it seems like there's no in-game option to change the character's skin colours.

The DLCs barely add anything to the mix, I bought a bundle, I think it contained 2 or 3 DLCs and when I used the program it felt as if I didn't had any DLCs, as they are pretty missleading telling you they offer a two digit amount of clothing each, but in the end it's just 1-2 clothes palette swapped, if they allowed you to recolor the clothing it would be very helpful and add many possibilities, but as it is, the DLC is good to have but not a must buy.

Now, with all this said, you may be wondering why I recommend this program.

To me it's helpful, I like to draw to relax, I use CSP, but the dummies included (on CSP) are extremely hard to pose (altough more versatile), but it consumes A LOT of time to get the desired pose and angle to me at least, so I prefer to use this, make a vanilla character, pose it as I need, convert to png and use as reference on CSP, on the downside, even when there are a lot of poses here, camera angles and such (which btw is very fast compared to CSP's), they arn't very flexible, you can rotate the head and such, but (may be a newb mistake here, so I apologize if I'm mistaken, I'll make sure to edit if I find out later on) it seems like you can't rotate hands or other body parts.

With that said, I think the devs can have a very nice and versatile program if they work on it, specially the customization options, Steam workshop for this would be awesome to allow people to upload their models and such.

To the costumer: if you want a quirky program to have a giggle and such, this may be for you, if you need some quick reference dummies like me, this works as well, but if you're looking for something serious to do comics and such, you may not find what you're looking in here (mainly the customization, it's so limited, otherwise the filters are awesome).

To the devs: I think the hardest part is done (the core software), just add more customization options (body proportions and clothing), more interactions betwen models, more hair, and accesories and such and you'll have a solid program backed by a clean and intuitive interface, just stop with the DLCs please as they barely add anything, they're quite expensive and may be overwhelming to the new users, unless you plan to add more to the current DLCs so they're more worthy of buying and owning, as it is, it's just not worth it.

Also some glitches need to be fixed, it's kind of silly that firefox and ComiPo can't co-exist without comipo crashing.

I hope this review helps potential costumers with their purchase and the devs on improving the experience so we can get a better product.

Cheers!

Only 4 character models, only 4 changes of cloths, very limited on what type of models can be imported, and no community workshop or DLC.

In conclusion, do not get this program. There are others cheaper programs that do more out there.

I should have read the reviews before buying this. It is so limited in choices that its basically unusable unless youre trying to do some school yard short story, because literally all of the clothing choices are school uniforms. You have to pay for the rest of the DLC, which is free to japanese users, but not anyone else, and even with the DLC, the options are still insanely limited. And with no return policy, i am now stuck with completely useless software. DO NOT BUY THIS! It is not worth the money.

Seems good at first but I am not liking this at all... Maybe if this had some DLC but right now... I would say do not buy this.

Let me start by saying this:
ALL THE REVIEWS ARE CORRECT, the software itself is VERY limited and if you're looking to make a professional-looking manga/comic then it's going to be a bad purchase for you!

When I was gifted this, I knew exactly what I wanted it for: References!
I'm not trying to make a manga with this, but it helps in drawing poses and details like hands (since you can change the angles of the 3D models, it is an ok software for that).

So, to make this short:
- Is it good enough to make a decent-looking manga? Not really, unless it's just as a quick joke for your blog/website.
- Is it good enough to HELP me draw an actual manga? It's not the best, but it's a nice tool to have! But there are other 3D modeling/posing softwares that have a lot more options.
- Is it worth the price? If it's 75% off or a gift, sure!

I recommend this software but only considering what I just wrote on this review.
But please, if you're considering buying it, read the most reviews as possible and maybe even watch some tutorials on youtube so you can see the software in action!
Make an informed purchase!

Must read review from a die-hard anime/manga fan: Save the money, folks.... unless it goes on sale again.

[Edit]: I did find at least one redeeming feature for this program... I do like that you can make simple things using this. So lets say you want a game ID, PC wallpaper or want to design a T-shirt with simple anime characters, but can't draw (like me), this program can actually come in handy for that. Or like some other reviews said, as references if you CAN draw. Otherwise, my review still stands.... This has so much potential that wasn't really realized, so I'm still disappointed. But at least I can make a few banners with this thing, so I guess the money wasn't totally wasted...?

[Now my old review:]

And I purchased it because it was on sale, figured at less than 1/2 the price, maybe it'd be worth a shot? Figured I could use it for character creation, not manga creation....

Even then.... As other reviews have stated it is very, very limited. The DLC's show many 'new options', but in reality they add about 1 new article of clothing to the characters.... Not anything significant at this point. I would be satisfied if the DLC was free, and they promised to release more/better DLC packs.... But no dice. Might record some 'gameplay' of this, so people can see what they'd be getting into before they actually do.

The game came directly from Japan, so at the very least I suppose I helped with the economy a slight bit? I love Japan, but I'd rather have something I can really work with. Even if I didn't write any manga or anything, I'd really love to be able to create entirely custom characters as references for tabletop games, instruction manuals, etc.

Even at a discount.... I'm really kinda regretting purchasing this now. And a DLC pack (had to see if it changed anything...)

Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll update someday with more (& better) software.... But I doubt it, sadly.

This software serves only two purposes, primarily as a method for those with limited drawing skill to tell a simple story. The resources to do this, as noted elsewhere, are very limited and specialised. With add on packs of 2 simple clothing options priced around $18, it is an incredibly expensive, if easy to use, comic creator. You must realise when purchasing it that you will have very limited options for customising the characters you use and no control over the posing of the character unless a pose already exists.

Secondly, it is an adequate resource for reference purposes thanks to the useful camera and 3D rotation features. This should not be mistaken for altering a pose, it is simply a way to reorient your model for the 2D panels. The limitation here is as above, the inability to alter the model in any significant way means all characters have the same cookie cutter look.

First of all, Comipo is a great software where you can develop your story-making skills with certain constrains. The User interface is very user-friendly and easy to use. If you're the type that can't come up with character ideas, this software is a big help to you.

Don't get confused by the sofware name, Comipo is more like a story maker with built-in characters rather than a manga maker. Most of the users say that it's not worth it because the biggest reason is that they were expecting more like the Manga Studio. Comipo is drag and drop story maker presented in manga/comics form.

For me, Comipo is worth the money and worth the time.

Pros:
1. It's the first software with this kind of story making system.
2. If you're bad with drawing, the built-in characters can cover that up.
3. The limitations can exercise your mind in coming up with story ideas.
4. A lot of character poses and facial expressions are available.
5. Tests your efficiency in using limited backgrounds and characters.

Cons:
1. Costly because of the DLC packs.
2. Limited character modifications.

Note:
If you plan to buy this, I reccomend that you buy at least 3 DLC packs depending on what story you want to make. I planned to make a shoujo school life manga series out of this so I bought Swimwear, Summer & Sports, and Casual wear.
If you plan to make a manga series, this software is very worth it. If not, then practice your drawing skills and try Manga Studio.

It cost me quite a lot but this is like my hobby now. I already made 15 chapters of my manga series using this sofware. If you keep on whining and ranting about this software then go on. In some way, you're just not just flexible enough in making stories.

And one more thing regarding DLC, buy only what you NEED and not what you want. I save up some money for DLC that can help my manga series become more and more interesting.

For good story writers out there who want a visualization of their ideas, this is the software for you. Be a good story writer, Be a Comipo user! :D

While I'm not the type that judges software after only a few minutes using it, ComiPo is simple enough that you can try every features it has to offer in that limited time for a quick review. A lot of people already gives accurate opinions about Comipo, so I'll keep mine short

This software is good for quick comic-making, be it for Facebook, community forum or your blog/website that just needs a bit more "picture talk" - it's perfect to transform daily joke or something you came up on-the-fly to a few manga panels so everyone can enjoy it without having to read through a wall of text. Literally EVERYTHING in Comipo is drag 'n drop and most of the time you are just moving things around, rotate them to fit together, throw in a few speech bubbles and maybe some expression/comic effect - simple as that.

Now for the bad thing - lack of customization is obvious. Even though you are given 3D models with a bunch of preset pose, you are unable to modify them further and just gotta use whatever the devs gave you. I know this is to simplify editing process, but it would be nicer to have an Advanced option so you can custom-pose 3D models (Maybe also within some limitation set by devs to make thing more logical). On the same subject, texture editing is also very limited - even a simple color change to character clothing is not possible at all, so if you really like a clothing set but its color is not your taste, you have no choice but to post-edit it after exporting image from Comipo. Finally, I don't understand why there's no skin color option - you can't make black/yellow skinned characters within Comipo, which is quite stupid. Just a minor complain though, but you can only add 32 pages per CPD file, so good luck managing your comic if you have tons of pages.

While Comipo is mod-friendly to a degree and there are some very nice-made stuff out there, it's still not enough for you to make anything better than 4-koma manga - likewise, new updates just seem to add more useless stuff rather than what we truly need (though, maybe it's too hard for the devs to come up with the moment so we can only wait). The DLCs didn't help much either, as they don't offer much more than a few preset outfit and objects/backgrounds to come with. What I think is the worst is that character pose are not getting updated fast enough (not even DLCs), forcing you to just play around with the old one for a LONG time (And how many do we have, like 200+ which half are only usable on certain angel?). At least the devs are still being active on Steam forum, but whether or not our idea/suggestion can make it to Comipo is up to them. Me personally, I'd agree that a basic puppet tool would be MUCH nicer than those preset pose, and the ability to change skin/clothing colors is pretty much a must if Compio wanna get more customers.

Overall I'd give this software 8/10 - it suits well for me in assisting comic work, and I feel like I can play around with it for story-telling when I'm not up to making an entire Photoshop CS page. Although it might not worth the full price in some way, but feel free to pick it up on a sale.

#DLCs WARNING: After grabbing most of the packs available on Steam (Minus the Business Person that I don't need since I'm into making school life manga), here's what you guys need to take into consideration:
-Most DLCs will only give you 1-2 new clothing styles - their numbers are actually available colors for that specific set. Take a look at the preview image rather than the text, I'm not gonna blame the devs for false advertising but this is rather misleading.
-Some DLCs come with additional poses but ONLY for characters made with that DLC - example you get a set of "swimming pose" for the Swimsuit DLC but only for characters wearing swimsuit, it's not carried over to other characters (I know it's only logical to swim with proper swimsuits but hey, what if we make a scene where a character swims across the river to save someone?). This is also another reason some DLCs got heavily negative rate due to inflexibility usage of poses, making the DLCs not so useful for its price.

#2.40 UPDATE: After a few patches bringing Comipo closer to its JP version, the tool is getting a lot more features, but still lack a few critical one to make it more functional. Only one new DLC added since I wrote this review and that's a shame because not only the devs won't give us customize freedom, they also don't care much on offering us paid/free content. This is what I seriously hate about JP/KR software/games, but well, that's how the world works.

#2.50 UPDATE: Okay, things are getting a little better now; at least our feedback are still being appreciated. The support of PMD import makes it much easier to add custom characters/pose now - I haven't got the chance to try it out though it this is quite welcoming. I like the "sorting" menu that allows you to separate all / preset / custom models (with separate folders for custom models) so you don't have to scroll through a long list to find something to attach to your character. There is also a Color menu but sadly it can't be used to anything other than preset assets that you can actually choose colors (i.e stray hair...).

#KNOWN ISSUE: I've been running into this strange issue recently - don't know if it's because I installed too many custom contents that my x86 system can't handle or just because my VGA card is getting old (It's a GT 620 with only 1 GB memory). When exporting image, there is a chance that the process will fail and you will receive an error messenger - during that time, your VGA driver STOPS working and sometimes it can recover (so you can see the messenger) sometimes it cannot, forcing a hard reset. Lately I tried to close everything in the background and just use Comipo, and hasn't seen this error, so maybe it's just me. If you guys plan to use Comipo on not-so-powerful rig, especially x86 like me, be warned that Comipo may demand significant resource to run flawlessly (and with custom contents too).

I do recommend this software because it is a gold mine of possibilities and it really helped me for things like perspective and poses for character. BUT, you must be able to use at least another software like Photoshop or Gimp to complete this one. As some people said : it is limited even with all of their features and DLC for the choice of clothes, type of characters and objects, but you can import a lot of thing such as 2D images, 3D objects and with an image editor on the side, it is the most useful program I used for manga creation. So if you are ready to work and know a thing or two about image edition, this is a wonderful software for you.
