Learn techniques from popular Japanese creators at Anime Art Academy!
Hello, I’m “Staff No. 4,” an in-house creator at MediBang Inc.!
Those of us living in Japan are exposed to anime and manga on a daily basis and are able to learn a lot from it. But what about those who live outside of Japan?
There are many people who want to learn unique Japanese techniques but are not able to improve their skills as much as they would like.
So this time,
I love the look of anime and manga, but have no way to learn how to draw like that.
I want to learn from Japanese creators.
If this sounds like you then
Anime Art Academy
is the online learning service you’ve been looking for!
As a Japanese creator, I feel that this is a great service, a definite must-try!

Reviews from students who have taken the course.
Riku Dola Wow. I’m very surprised that the course actually is teaching important stuff. Usually anime and manga tutorials, courses, or even books just suck at teaching beginners especially when it’s in English, but this course actually has value and is teaching things beginners should know. This first lesson did a very good job at teaching the students to understand 3D and learn proportions, anatomy and technique (ghosting, drawing with shoulder, drawing arcs/curves) that will be very useful, while providing a very fun method to practice it. The method is not the most efficient but people will do it more because it’s fun and will improve multiple skills at the same time. So far I’m really enjoying this and it is obvious the instructor knows what he is talking about.
Anime Art Academy is absolutely the best way to learn about drawing in the Anime/Manga style. I have tried many other ways to learn this, such as YouTube channels, Udemy, and art books, which are definitely good resources, but nothing can compare to the speed of the progress I’ve made since joining Anime Art Academy. The instructors are absolutely top notch. Everytime you post in the comments section, you get feedback that is actually useful and applicable. Not to mention, I also felt like they cared about my progress as an artist. Submission after submission, they would notice the little ways that I have improved every time. I started from absolute 0 on learning how to draw anime and manga, but now I am able to confidently produce authentic anime illustrations after only 3 months. When you join Anime Art Academy, you don’t just sign up for online classes, you become part of a real community which supports each other, and provides you with more than enough to help you reach your goals.

Anime Art Academy has helped me improve so much in a year! It has helped me learn the fundamentals, and understand why certain things are the way they are. This is all thanks to the teachers and staff who help me in every way possible by giving me advice, and correcting any mistakes I might have made. Looking back now, I can see that some advice that people give out on the internet, like TikTok, do not do a great job explaining what they’re doing in depth. This is why I highly recommend Anime Art Academy! Also, we have a great community on Discord who help each other out on our journey.
