I saw a while ago a interesting post in /r/manga and was just reminded of it now. Here's the original post

u/toomuchkalesalad was a finalist in a manga contest in Weekly Morning (the manga magazine that published Space Brothers and Vagabond) and she made me realize the fact that it is actually possible to publish manga in Japan even if you

Don't know Japanese

Don't live in Japan

Which I believe are the two biggest obstacles that hold people back from trying to get their manga published.

Basically, what she says is if you don't know Japanese, you need a good Japanese localizing person (I assume that means translator). As for communicating with editors and sending your manga, you can talk by email, skype, or phone, and you can send your manga by fax. She mentions other manga artists who don't live in Japan, such as Mari Yamazaki and Saori Oguri does this as well.

I still have my doubts if this works for every magazine, so more info might be needed. Still, it's great to know it's possible. Check out her post for more info. Hopefully this helps some of you who are looking to get published in the future.

Of course! One word of warning: It won't likely be easy by any stretch! If that's your passion, go for it! Start now with whatever you can do now. Publish your stuff on the Web. Give it away to friends. Find one or more (more is better) person(s) whose work you admire and emulate, assimilate, and integrate the aspects of their work that most resonate with you. Work to find your own "color" or "flavor" of work as well. Respect them all in your work. 8 Ball Pool Google Hangouts Omegle

By all means, learn Japanese. If you're not willing to learn the language, you'll never learn the culture, aesthetic, perspective, or the people... to say nothing of actually being able to actually communicate! Leave it alone and pick up software engineering if you're not willing to do this (-_- ). Visit/move to Japan as well. In fact, don't just learn the language, give yourself to the language and the culture... your existing one(s) won't go anywhere.
