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.

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.

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.
