Description
From Mangascreener:
Nawoki Karasawa is one of the longer-active and more prestigious names in the typically small time, lesser-known world of gag manga. In a genre where art skill is second to just about everything else, Karasawa's dialogue is hilariously sharp and witty.

A gag parody of Shinji Nagashima's immortal "Mangaka Zankoku Monogatari" (Karasawa's title only differs by adding "Chou" (super) to "Zankoku"), a manga about the dreams, ambitions, and suffering of a group of bright young mangaka. Karasawa brilliantly takes the piss out of just about everything involved with being a mangaka. It's lewd, raunchy, endlessly cynical and laugh-out-loud funny.

Originally published in Ikki and the Big Comic Spirits special issue "Casual" from 2000 to 2003, it was collected into a single book in 2005.

this is for all the half-hearted wannabe thinking they want to become a mangaka. bottom line it - you actually DONT. its a hard and harrowing life. it doesnt matter how good your art, how brilliant your story, the life of a mangaka is not an easy one, you easily die, go crazy, get fat, get forgotten etc the last chapter is the best, showing you even that half-heartedness is the worst. i personally think this is more realistic than bakuman or heaven's door - its over the top, but at least it really try to dissuade you from this perilous path.
