Im Dal Young's Coaching Clinic...   
Rating: 7.5 / 10.0

... are pretty much concludes everything about this comic. The artworks are typical (Even while he works with LOTS OF different artists), while the story are pretty much about either Dal Young opinion's about manga/manhwa or about how he do his works (Boobs, twisted characters, etc.), this one is pretty good if you want to be an insane (or dark-styled, to be precise) mangaka like him. So, 7.5 is enough for this one.

The main character fails to stick to his morals and ends up being another cog in the machine. Seriously, why does the author take time off from other series in order to write this drivel?

Someone found a way to add a power up system to a manga about drawing manga. I half wish the story wasn't as dramatic and was just a few chapters of that system being exploited. Anyhow, on to serious stuff:

Ignoring who the author is, I'd have to say I like this manga. The art is gorgeous, and sometimes little details pop out that I would never have expected to be there and just are. The panel layout is amazing, and during one scene, I even got shivers.

The male lead has a bunch of beautiful females surrounding him, but only one woman who is obviously interested in more (but it's downplayed so it's in the background of the story, not the focus...it feels natural), and has a pretty weak personality. Sometimes he has moments of awesome, but it's usually just before a moment shame or shortly after so he's pretty pathetic overall. Still, he has a dream, a dream of making manga.

If you think too hard about the story, you'll realize that none of the background stuff that's going on to support it could ever happen in reality. You could say it makes the story pretty weak, but that's only if the story wasn't so character driven. Basically, the stage has been set and it's a bunch of people add libbing .What's on stage with them can only help to support with driving the story forward, the characters themselves are the ones telling it. This is my favorite form of story telling.

Going to who the author is, I can say I wish he'd change the formula on his male characters a bit. But if I stop and think about it, the reason why I'm so irritated with them is because I can sometimes picture myself responding that way or remembering a time where I have. I haven't been in the same situations, but some of the words his male characters tend to use I have also used. Seeing my weakness inside of a character in a story is a bit unsettling.

What a weak plot. Same old crappy plot by IM Dal-Young, and like he says in the manga, it sells cause the girls are soooo hot. And he doesn't even draw them. Seriously, he should just focus on Maian.

When the manga took off, I kinda thought it's gonna be interesting. But after some time the whole plot just turns to be ridiculous. More so the last chapters. The main guy always runs somewhere off being all EMO and the whole tension is just too weird and unfitting. I guess ecchi concept and a story about manga creation just don't work that well together. Also it's kinda sad to me that Im Dal-young doesn't work on his other stuff, which I thought was better.

I simply like this manga, in my opinion it has not so original, but quite firm and addictive storyline, nice characters and cognizable Im Dal Young's style. I don't find it boring or bad-done, the title has it's own charm, and on top of that - yeah, it's about making manga, about something close to nowaday realities! ^__^ Maybe Im Dal Young tells us a story of his own manga-beginning, who knows... He-he... ))
I'd say it's like Bakuman and so on, but I didn't read Bakuman in the first place, so wonder they really are that similar...
So that's why I can't understand all this dull complaints - too many titles at the same time, no one finished yet (UxU is), boring storyline, old drawing... Man, there are just a bunch of fake complaints. There are not so many authors that can write something like an autobiography, especially painted in such dark colours (I have weird feeling that's what Koimoku about >_<).
Yeah, Im Dal Young, you're doing it right, keep going! wink

The Dark Side

Basically, this is the Dark Side version of Bakuman. Where in Bakuman, hard work and love of manga prevail over factory created works and other corrupt methods, this is basically the exact opposite. It's not even a good story. There are no redeeming qualities to this manga, boobs aside. If you want boobs, there are plenty of better manga out there.

I really like Im Dal Young's works. I have read Freezing, The legend of Maian, Zero, UxU, and Onihime VS. I must say, this is getting old. I write novels for a hobby so I understand the feeling a novelist has when they feel they have an idea worth an entire series. But their are limits to HOW MANY series you should be writing a one time. Eight Manga's all circulating at once is insane and quite frankly I don't feel like reading this one until the others are finished. I mean seriously, haaa

Anyone unfamilar with Im Dal Young's work by all means read and enjoy. The main character is pathetic right now but the mahwa usually turns it around and makes him cool. But be warned, this manga will take a VERY LONG TIME TO FINISH. Because when this manga's chapters reaches the half way point for him. The mahwa WILL start a new series. You have been warned.

Although the comments below me state some true facts about the characters in this manga, I believe they are woefully overlooking some of the main issues in this manga that makes it interesting. The manga industry is not idealized in this series; the author poses many hard questions concerning the creation of manga. Is manga an artful form of storytelling or a commercial product that needs to be tailored to the customer. How much credit does the original mangaka deserve if the work behind the creation of his/her manga is split between several assistants?

In a nutshell, is manga an art or a business? This manga explores the conflict between those two views.
