I'm a junior high art teacher and use some lessons from this with students in my advanced classed in the 13 and 14 age range. I wouldn't recommend it for someone with no figure drawing experience at all. My classes had spent some time on the head scale and drawing realistic figures before we move into assignments in which the students can distort figures and add characterizations such as with manga or anime style drawing. I think it's important to understand the difference at first or you'll never be able to draw figures well. Some of the examples of drawing lessons and instructional steps in this book will be difficult to understand if you've NEVER drawn before, it's not beginner level, even for adults. Out of the entire book, about 2 pages of images were too sexualized for me to allow public school kids to look at but I just cut those pages out with an exacto. Nothing serious, just nude figure issues with how to shape breasts, etc. I bought a used copy of this super cheap but wouldn't of paid full price for it. I consider it middle of the road in terms of drawing instruction books, okay for what I needed but not mind blowing. There are easier ways to teach and explain some of the concepts but the illustrations are nice.

The title of the book says it all. This book is incredibly beginner friendly. Manga figures are broken down into fundamental shapes and even further into stick figures. I found this method the best way to learn. Other drawing books barely scratch the surface and feel like an brief summary; this one goes in depth - walking you through each stroke. Tips, tricks, and advice on what to avoid are included. The book also briefly goes into mechas, animals, weapons, perspective, words, word bubbles. I would not recommend this book to intermediate drawers and up. This book moves in pace very slowly and with a lot of detail, but this is what makes it so beginner friendly.

Introduction
Beginning Body Building

Action Poses

Ears, Noses, and Mouths

Part 3: Character Types

I've just recently started to gain a interest in manga style & wanted to try it out for myself. Within the first two days I was showing much improvement with the help of this book. (Even thou I had no experience at all) I do have a feeling thou that if your not a beginner you may have to skip a chapter or two because some things you may already know - but in my opinion, this seems a perfect starter book for the beginner. Informative & easy to folks instruction for someone like me.

First of all, I love the 'Complete IDIOT'S Guide' series. And their guide to drawing Manga has proven to be another winner, in this house.
I looked long and hard to find an exceptional book of 'how to draw manga', for my daughter. This was NOT the first one she's been presented with, but it IS the first one she has totally immersed herself in! Now, she's filling her art pad with loads of lovely manga heroes and heroines with large, sparkling eyes. She's even starting her own story series with them.
So, from all of us 'idiots' out here, thanks to all the talented creators of 'The Complete IDIOT'S Guide to Drawing Manga', for such a complete tutorial - another overall great product!

So far it has reached my expectations, though it has left more to be desired. Just got the book, so I'm not so sure if it covers everything, but I bought the book expecting to learn more about the basics of literal body building, and facial drawing. It does explain away, though their methods may not suited for everyone. Just love it as a source of reference though. To me, it doesn't explain faces well enough, but that's just me.

This book includes a LOT of information, which I really like. However, for the "drawing manga" part, not so much. Though suitable for beginners, more advanced drawers should definately get a book more focused on drawing.

This book shows the basics for drawing a human figure, and some basic poses. It's good for people who have a hard time drawing proportionally. Though I certainly didn't gain much drawing experience from this book, all the information and many drawings are great to read through. Overall, I feel that it should be titled "Complete Idiot's Guide to Manga" instead.
I purchased both editions of this book so i was really disappointed when i realized that it was the exact same book as the second edition. The only thing really different is the cover. As for the book itself. It has a lot of the basics covered but i wouldn't recommend this book to a beginner because it only briefly goes over broad sketching and does not break down the drawings.
