This is Naoki Urasawa

I’m not Naoki Urasawa. I’m just a supporter of his work.

On this site you’ll find English subtitled versions of “Urasawa Naoki no Manben”, the interview series created by Naoki Urasawa himself, where he interviews other mangaka about their creation process.

The 4th episode of S2 and the majority of Season 3 and 4 weren’t translated originally so I had them translated into English, then annotated the videos and subtitled them.

I’ve taken notes on the episodes and created summary pages of the advice given, tools used, inspirations and much more so you can get the most out each episode.

The episodes can be viewed in any order. 

Disclaimer: This website was created for educational, reporting and inspirational purposes to share the advice of the creators with a wider audience. I am not the owner of the video material created.

If anything is wrong with the site I’d appreciate it if you could send me an email: 

…or if you just want to say hello that’d be nice. Happy drawing!


**UPDATE JAN 2019**
Hey guys, so I was going hard on editing these episodes from Japanese to English, got to S3E3 and had to stop for 2 reasons.

1) NHK flagged my videos for copyright violation and my youtube account got taken down.
2) I had to go through cancer treatment which I’m still doing, radiation in Feb.

However I’ve received lots of positive emails from people requesting more episodes and showing appreciation for the project.

So now I have a new lease of life and want to continue with this. 

If anyone has any good suggestions for where to upload the videos let me know. Dailymotion seems to be having issues. 
S3E3 will be out soon so stay tuned.
