Problems with the New Artist Award

Haruyuki Nakano's "Manga Industry Theory" points out that although it is a rookie award aimed at finding newcomers, there is a problem from the standpoint of the development of the manga industry.[2].

  • Most of the people who apply for the New Artist Award are readers of the magazine, so they are influenced by the manga artists who are serializing them, and their styles are similar.
  • Commercial magazines are looking for immediate fighting power, and popular comics are selected instead of novel and experimental comics.
  • Applicants are biased toward major popular magazines rather than minor magazines.
  • Even if he wins the rookie award and makes his debut, the style may be corrected by the editor.

And publishers and editors insist that new manga artists should not be thrown away under the name of "competence principle", but should be carefully trained as up-front investment.
