Everything is great in this comic maker so far. But here are my suggestions for the developers: include a option to add/change

1.) Skin tone variation. (tanned and darker options)
2.) Ears (elven, dwarven)
3.) body type (short, medium, tall heights and builds of more weight and less weight characters, the businessmen are excellent though so far)
4.) More indication of where to find tutorials, there is a bit of a learning curve to get through
5.) More English sound effects. The Japanese ones aren't useful to a English demographic unfortunately
6.) Eyebrows. Thick ones!

This program is amazing, however I didn't care for the price. ( I personally think it is overpriced. ) So I waited till it went on sale and only paid $13. [ 75% off ] Anyways, it does help if you have editing software to go with it. I use Photoshop CS5.5 . But SAI, Gimp and Paint ( if you have the time and the eyes. ) would add to your spectrum of powers. ( Also editing programs are really good for changing skin tones since that option is not avaible -- yet.



Also, ( Updates ideas: More "ragdoll" like if possible aka, most poses don't look right if character is turned / angled view. Maybe also a "Fancy" DLC? and a "Seasons" or "Holiday" one would be awesome. Not just summer... )

Jumping in to Manga Maker Comipo i had no idea i would enjoy it like i do now. At first i saw this when i open steam store and thought maybe so.... so i put it on my wish list and forgot about it. But after one week i saw my email say that it went a 50% off sale and so i bought it thinking i got a good deal even if i would never even play it. After a half a week or so, i was listening to some music i desided to play it and see what i could make, and before i knew it i sent over 10 hours!

Manga Maker Comipo for me is an enjoyable game to make a manga, because for me i'm not a artist and can't draw... but i am good at making stories and thats where this game helps me.

But even though i love this game i am not blind on what the cons are, or thing that can be changed/added

Cons
- the game has a limit on the characters to what you can make them look like and what kind of poses you can make them do
- they could added it for mac (i know it can be a job to do but i think it would good idea)
- this game can be too basic for what you want to do
- needs a maker to add poses and 3D obect icon

Pros
- easy to jump into
- lots of things to add to make your manga look alive
- simple to add your own images or 3D obects

For me i'm tring to make a big manga story and i am having fun doing it and as a gamer, having fun is a key for games.
i recommand this to people that want to start a manga thats easy and simple for anyone make a short/long story, or maybe just curious (like i was)

When I first started out making my non-Comipo webcomic (www.troidzone.com), I would often join sessions with my artist in Open Canvas. Together, we'd draw and get each page perfect, but some time ago, the program stopped working.

Unfortunately, communication became more difficult and time constraints lead me to drawing stick figures in MS Paint accompanied by many references and notes, but then I discovered Comipo.

Yes, it's limited but for my purposes, it's absolutely what the doctor ordered.

I can now pose 3D character models, size the comic boxes the way I want to quickly and accurately, show my artist where I want the speech bubbles, and even though accompanying notes are still required (specifics of a pose not achievable in the program, facial expressions, etc.), this has saved me a lot of agony as well as allowed me to storyboard ahead quickly in remarkable detail.

For those looking to make a fun-filled comic, this may or may not fill your needs. It's true that the character customization is severely limited, but thanks to 2D and 3D imports, you can import extra stuff to expand your library. The program is user-friendly and you can have a comic made very quickly. For small things like changing skin tones, hair colours, and eye colours, the generous Steam user Minena has provided a Photoshop-based tutorial to show you how.

For those looking to make something professional, you may need to look elsewhere, make time to draw, or hire an artist.

And for those of you looking to simply improve your art, you may want to look into programs like Poser 3D and/or Manga Studio. Poser 3D provides you with a fully customizable 3D mannequin which will give you ample poses to work with whereas Manga Studio (which is closer to Photoshop) provides amazing features alongside decent bases to keep your anatomy intact.

All in all, a very satisfactory program, however I wouldn't buy it off sale. =P

For those who have never bought RPG Maker, which is sold by the same company, this would seem like a good product to buy, however, if you do own RPG Maker, never buy this software unless you are offered one heck of a deal. In this software,you get nothing but the basics, as in barely enough to make a couple of characters. I bought this because I do happen to own RPG Maker, though not on steam, thinking I could merge some of the manga into cut sceens to spice the game up. However, I found a somewhat lack luster interface, a poor array of options with the basic package, and found it some what annoying to use. As I tryed to get something good out of it, I relized that its nothing more than a bare-boned program that offers alot of add-ons on the dev's site. I don't know if its just me, but this seems to be nothing more than a way to sucker people out of money by giving almost nothing for $49.99. That money is best spent on other things such as buying RPG Maker, a much better product with tons more content, or for an actual game. I can truely justify RPG Maker only because it can provide at least a bit of fun and has alot more things in it. If you want to check out my review on Amazon where I bought the steam code, im still the only review on the product as of this posting. Save your money what ever you do, don't buy unless you are truly Willing to buy add-ons to make up for the lack of content.

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.

Very interesting software, considering it's nothing like the RPG Maker games. RPG Maker offers a large variety of options without the use of DLC, but this game on the other hand requires money for DLC to add to your manga, at a very hefty price let me tell you. I could actually by RPG Maker with the costs of the DLC, if of course it was on sale. This maker is very limited unless you buy the DLC, and that does not fly in my book. Don't buy unless you have the money to buy the DLC, not worth it. I'd recommend RPG maker over this.

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.

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.

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

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.
