The PlayStation Vita is getting a new downloadable manga-making software called Manga ka keeru, made by Granzella, former developers from Irem, who worked on titles such as Disaster Report and Steambot Chronicles. Famitsu gives us a look at the Vita manga maker.

Once you start, you’ll have blank frames, or koma, in the Manga Edit Mode. It’ll prompt you to start out by choosing which characters will appear in the manga. Next, you can place backgrounds, speech bubbles, effects and more.

 

Additionally, there are other editing options like changing the thickness of lines, and fine tuning the size of certain parts of the characters, so you can basically customize the drawings to fit your style or to give it a little more personality.

While drawings are important in manga, the stories are also a big factor, as they both go hand in hand. In the “Chapter 1 Generator Mode,” you’ll get to play a visual novel-style game tat lets you make a manga story from scratch.

 

There are four different genres to choose from, and the stories can then be edited in the Manga Edit Mode, so if you’re not sure about where to start, this could be a good way to help exercise your creative muscle.

To give you an idea on how it works, the above picture asks what would you like the protagonist to reply with, which ranges from different answers like “Of course I’m the pitcher,” to “I suck at baseball”.

 

Manga Ka Keeru will release in Japan sometime in November for PlayStation Vita.

    Very cool, in my opinion. I’d give it a try if available in the west at a sensible price.

    • Neppygear

      It probably won’t be brought over at all.

      • JonathanisPrimus

        I wouldn’t say that. An English release of this game has already been announced for Asia. Doesn’t make much sense to let it stay there, does it?

    • FreeLancers

      you should get the 3ds manga making, at least you can create your OWN!! manga from scratch. I use it everyday and you can port your manga sheets to a PC.

      • michel

        But the problem is exactly that I can’t create my own manga from scratch…

  • pokeslob

    Looks like between this and tagforce special I’ll be needing a new vita here soon

  • CycloneFox

    Is it known, whether the characters are only pre-set ones, or is there the option to add own characters from a character editor?

    And is the price known, yet?

    • michel

      looks like it’s four or five dollars.

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    Eh….it’d be better if you could type in your own dialogue.

  • DyLaN
  • Yan Zhao

    This needs an English version. Imagine what we could do with this! Based on real people we know!

  • Learii

    is this base on school sitting?

  • JohnNiles

    This software will probably be used to make super Kawaiiko-chans

  • Snorlaxation

    Lots of potential….for hilariousness.
