Head Judge

The creator of Naruto,
Masashi Kishimoto!

A message from Masashi Kishimoto to all aspiring manga creators!

It's a no-brainer that manga is being read around the world,
so come to think of it, this contest is actually a great idea.

There are many different types of people and ways of thinking in the world.

That’s why I expect to see manga that really go outside the box and I think that’s what makes this contest worthwhile.

Even if you don't really know how to draw manga,
then the only advice I can give you is: don't learn how to do it but rather get used to doing it.
I'm not sure if it'll be of any help, but for the time being, "Get used to it!"

Lastly, manga has to be interesting so don't give me any strange works of art! I'm looking forward to seeing the most interesting ones out there.
