Abstract:Manga is a Japanese style comic. Nowadays, production of manga in the digital environment is widely accepted since authoring/drawing tools on PC have become popular. However, the digitalization of manga production is only in the later stages of the whole production process. The goal of this research is to improve productivity of manga production using information technologies in the earlier stages of the process. A fundamental problem exists in information resource management in the production process, e.g., reuse of unused scenarios for a new content, revision of existing character image. In this paper we propose a manga production support tool which helps creators (re)use existing resource in the production process, e.g., annotations attached to design memos, communication history, and so on. The tool uses metadata for various resources used and created in the production process. This paper describes the background of the study and overviews the production support tool.
