Shonen (pronounced “shown- in”) is the action style of manga, made famous on TV and in graphic novels by such titles as Naruto, Ful/metal Alchemist and Bleach. This is the first book in the Manga Mania series that focuses solely on the action styles of Japanese comics. Within these pages are the heroic teens, amazing female fighters, bad-to- the-bone villains, samurai warriors and giant robots that have built the manga section of bookstores into such an enormous size and success. This is the style that’s got it all. Step behind the scenes and see exactly how shonen manga is created. First, tackle the basics of drawing the head and body proportions.
