  • The comeback of Japan is on the way

  • and people near and far are taking part

  • across the country students from overseas

  • continue with their education in Japan

  • On today's Manabi-ya, we'll need a student

  • from Italy who's learning manga in Kyoto

  • Manabi-ya is all about overseas students

  • living and learning in Japan

  • First up: School Days.

  • Keeping up with what's going on, on campus

  • Kyoto is not just a city in Japan.

  • It's a place that's known and loved around the World.

  • Japanese tradition resides here

  • as part of everyday life

  • Traditions come in many forms.

  • They attract people from other countries

  • who want to learn about them in their natural habitat.

  • People like this young woman from Italy

  • My name is Daniela Russo.

  • Daniela has made good use of those years in Japan.

  • Her language skills have come along quite nicely.

  • The 22 year-old attends Kyoto Seika University,

  • majoring in one of the more recent

  • artistic traditions to come out of Japan.

  • Kyoto Seika University started

  • offering instruction in manga in 1973.

  • The first university in the country to do so.

  • The curriculum includes courses for those

  • who want to become professional manga artists(Manga-ka).

  • But it also has classes for students who

  • want to get involved in editing (American cartoonist).

  • People can also learn how to express

  • irony and humor in a single picture

  • and how to put pictures into motion

  • through animation (Animator).

  • About 60 students from abroad are

  • learning about manga here.

  • They come from such places as China,

  • South Korea and Sweden

  • and of course Italy,

  • Daniela's home country.

  • She's enrolled in the comic art sequence(Story Manga)

  • to become a manga artist (Manga-ka).

  • And has been at it for 2 years.

  • The assignment for this day was to draw 8 manga pages

  • in line with the particular theme.

  • This requires not only deciding the story development

  • but also figuring out how to set the range

  • for the pictures, the size for dialogue and the locations.

  • Daniela does her project in Japanese.

  • The professors in this department are practicing

  • manga artists (Manga-ka) whose work is seen across the country.

  • They know the ends analysis of the industry

  • So, when they give advice it's based on experience.

  • The teachers cast a critical eye on everyone's work

  • International students get no slack.

  • “I just have change to erase

  • and redraw the bottom part of this page.

  • That way it should be alright (LOL).”

  • Repetition helps develop the skills

  • needed to develop a reputation

  • so the students draw over and over

  • to reach the essence of the subject.

  • When Daniela goes home

  • she's still surrounded by manga.

  • Her monthly living expenses amount

  • to just under 15 hundred dollars.

  • About 6 hundred of that goes to rent.

  • All those manga she buys upper that too

  • Daniela was born (in Milan)

  • and raised in Monza a suburb of Milan.

  • As a girl she loved drawing.

  • She started watching Japanese anime and

  • reading translated manga.

  • Before long, that world had become her world.

  • She study Japanese by herself at 16 and

  • learn enough to understand some manga.

  • Moe Kare!!” is a love story about a girl

  • like Daniela who's crazy about manga.

  • Daniela was drawn to this tale of

  • dreams and romance

  • but she also found that it made her

  • aware of cultural differences.

  • The obvious part for her was

  • to study manga in Japan

  • and in Japan, Kyoto Seika University

  • is THE place to go to, to do just that.

  • To pave the way, Daniela needed to build up

  • her communication skills in Japanese.

  • So, for her first 2 and a half years in the country,

  • she attended language school.

  • She now sees Kyoto as her other hometown.

  • Part of the reason is that she's been there quite a while.

  • But her attachment to the city

  • goes far beyond nostalgia.

  • This is Japan's first manga research facility.

  • It was established by Kyoto Seika University

  • and the city of Kyoto

  • and its influence reaches around the World.

  • 50 thousand manga line the walls, a historical

  • record of an art form that still evolving.

  • Manga are now found in places across the globe.

  • They make for a multi-million dollar

  • business in markets such as the USA and France.

  • Daniela says the institute reminds her of

  • just how prominent the profile of manga is internationally.

  • From a dreaming girl

  • to a woman with an actual career.

  • Daniela still has a ways to go in making a

  • living and a life as a manga artist (Manga-ka).

  • But with everyday the picture

  • becomes more realistic.

  • Even in her early age Daniela

  • had a sense of where she was headed.

  • Manga became part of her childhood

  • and when she got older

  • she found the courage to follow her dream

  • to the other side of the World.

  • Her story continues to be written in Japan.

  • Before we go, here's a bit more

  • information about what you saw today.

  • The manga department of Kyoto Seika University,

  • where Daniela studies,

  • encourages applications from international students.

  • The process requires

  • sending in information and documents

  • and later, an interview in Japanese

  • along with the review of your portfolio.

  • Classes are all in Japanese.

  • So you'll need to drawn on your language resources

  • See you next time on Manabi-ya.
