I didn't sure if I have a GPU that does not match to the spec. or, the software's algorithm is failed in my PC.
But, I founded the shadow goes wrong render every time.
I would suggest my self to check version of Pixel Shader on my card... but, how?
I think my card has PS 1.9 but, didn't check yet.

Read the most helpful reviews before buying this software! It will help save you moolah and prevent spending 50 whole bucks!!

Managed to buy this at a decent discount of 50%. All the people's reviews saying there are limited options are right, even if I haven't checked them for myself. This would be an extreme downer to those who bought this for the full price. The sample tutorial seems to have some spelling mistakes, but I managed to see what it was meant to say before making your first comic on this software. I may suggest buying it, but ONLY if you can catch this very product at a hefty discount! Discounts are always good for this very sort of thing!

I absolutely LOVE this! It gives you just what you need to put your creativity into play, not making the comic for you. A lot of people are complaining on here but I for one am really happy with this!

Manga Maker Comipo is very close to what I think is the most ideal lazy and or untalented artist software you can find. I must admit that without the downloadable content for the Manga Maker it is a bit flat. Once you have the DLC all kinds of creative possibilities open up. In my opinion out of all the DLC available, I believe the two most important would be the Office Wear and Business Person collections. Also one of the most surprising and over looked features of Manga Maker are the build in filters that you can not only apply to the preloaded 3D models, but also to your own imported models, it is quite nice. After applying these filters the models begin to look really nice, and it truly does in some cases give the image a realistic hand drawn look. My personal view on where Manga Maker falls short is in its lack of diversity of skin tone. Yes even with the software coming from Japan I find this inexcusable, especially considering the wide range of popular Manga characters that are not single color pale-ish. Look carefully at popular manga such as One Piece for example, or even the Dragon Ball series. I mean some of the characters in the Dragon Ball series have blue skin for gosh sakes! The characters in One Piece all have different skin tones also some of the more classic stuff like Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water, Mihoshi: Tenchi Muyo!, Kaolla Su: Love Hina and of course Momo Adachi: Peach Girl. I do hope that a selection of skin tone will be added in soon coming update.

Ok, its true that it is lacking...
But I find that it can be used to make reference sheets and simple slapstick quite well.
The 3D charecters are slightly tricky to use, but they are ok... though, again, lacking a bit...

I would recomend using other software like GIMP and so on to draw detailed stuff and use ComiPo! for layout, tones and Backgrounds.

Even though I recomend the software, I would not buy it if it isn't on offer and you have read through all the other reviews first.

The character creation and assets are very limited. Using software such as gimp, photoshop, 3DS, or maya is encouraged however more expensive (minus the gimp part) Character creation and poses have their limitations. 3d Character creation is very limited and has very few options for hair and decorations. The poses however offer a wide range of character action but all are not ideal for the situation. There is a small library for scenery and most will not fit the style some people are looking for including me. I can not recommend this software because I believe just playing a 3d game and manipulating the emotes and images are far easier than using this product.

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.

A very easy to use program, but don't expect a lot of character customization as the software doesn't allow for customizing outfits such as removing various clothing layers while leaving other still on. Severely limiting the variety of characters you can develop. I cannot recommend this software at it's full $50 retail price, but since I managed to pick it up on sale at a significant discount, I am still going to recommend the software if you can pick it up around $30 or below as there is still a lot to work with. Just don't expect to design a lot of varrying characters.

Unfortunately, this severe crippling of outfit customization is baffling as it reduces the product from a professional tool to a hobbyist grade product. Even if their model was to sell Clothing DLC packs it would make far more sense to still have more control over what article was worn on what part of the body at any given time and I hope to see an update to correct this in the near future, especially if they want to truly make this software worth the full price. Until then, pick it up as cheaply as you can if you're interested as there is still enough here to play around with.

I really should have looked at reviews. I figured at $12.50 it would be nice for character creation. It wasn't. Options are extremely limited, not a good collection of characters customization options. It doesn't seem like it would be good if you were serious about trying to make manga. If I had gotten it at full price I would have felt extremely ♥♥♥♥ed and ripped off, but as I got it at 75% off I'm just kind of annoyed and disappointed and still not thinking it was really worth it even at that price. I am off to play dress up games to make my OCs cause at least there I get more options.
