 Since the corona disaster, it has become difficult for contributors who wish to become manga artists to bring their works directly to publishers in the manga industry, so the event is being held online.At the review meeting, students bring their own manga works and receive direct reviews from editors of manga magazines in a wide range of genres.By receiving specific advice from multiple perspectives, it is a valuable opportunity to analyze one's own work more deeply and explore new forms of expression.

 Kyoto Seika University established a manga class in its art department in 1973, and has been working on manga research in depth and earlier than anywhere else. In 2006, the Faculty of Manga was established, and Japan's first comprehensive manga museum, the Kyoto International Manga Museum, was opened jointly with the city of Kyoto.It also has an international manga research center, and has a strong track record as a manga research institution, cooperating with the large-scale manga exhibition "The Citi exhibition Manga" held at the British Museum in England.
