Many anime and manga fans often thought about creating their own manga. Sometimes you have a really cool story in your mind but you can’t make a manga out of it because of lack of drawing skills. Worry not, because Shonen Jump will be launching a new app called “World Maker”, that will let you create your own manga without having to draw. Here we will talk about how you can register to be a beta tester for this app.
What can you do with “World Maker” app?
World Maker will provide you tools to become a mangaka. In first step you will write script (dialogues, lines, sentences) of your manga. “World Maker” app will automatically divide your script into frames (manga panels). Than you will be able to place character images from “World Maker” app library. Also, there will be an option to add your image in your manga as well. Currently, app has more than 600,000 images of backgrounds, effects and characters you can choose from to express yourself in manga.
