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.

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.

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.
