Why isn't manga made in color?

 Welcome, dear visitors of the Content Random, to this new article about why manga is not made in color. If you like the article, you can share it with your friends through the social networking buttons, so that everyone can benefit. As for after,

The manga itself was, and still is, black and white. During the early days of its mass production, the manga industry was supposed to be just affordable entertainment, at a time when printing in color was considered completely unreasonable. 

However, today color printing is not as expensive as it used to be (although it is not cheaper than black and white). Many people today read manga through screens that are usually in color (except for electronic ink readers), so why not print manga in color since we have the capabilities in this era?

While many manga magazines carry some color pages at the beginning of each chapter (usually as a special feature when the series is on the cover of whatever magazine it is featured in). These pages are designed by the mangaka and he spends a lot of time and effort to design them, the manga artists are really struggling to produce and finish the work before the deadlines. Also, coloring is an extra burden that most cannot handle regularly, and the burden is much less when working on regular productions. Ask any illustrator, coloring their work is a side task that takes a lot of time and effort. Not only do they use the fill tool in Photoshop, but they often spend a lot of time drawing a crayon line to start from.

Manga artists are also known to stick to their work, so many of them hire assistants to help them with writing, inking, applying drawing and shading techniques on screen as well as all other tasks related to the manga industry, it is important that the work is delegated, discussed and closely supervised, and more staff Helpers for coloring pages simply won't solve the problem. For animators who are usually happy to deliver their black-and-white manga on time, overseeing the production of color copies of their work at the same time is in itself a crazy proposition. The illustrators and readers are so used to black-and-white manga that it's not worth the trouble.

But that hasn't stopped several attempts at colorizing manga, from Akira's Marvel illustrations to numerous digital and visual manga projects over the years. However, it never seems plausible, the artwork is shaded and altered with the intention of seeing it in black and white, the layering of colors simply makes everything look very dark and dark, so the artistic effect loses its luster and the end result is disastrous, and many manga artists do not agree with this change in their work (The transition from color to black and white usually doesn't sound very exciting, but it had to be pointed out.)

Manga is ultimately a mixture of black and white, which is the format that most illustrators and readers alike love. This limitation is a central and necessary focus of manga and is one of the main reasons why so many serialized long stories see the light of day in this world. I am sure that with time there will be many more colorful and impactful spin-offs. There will also be many other attempts that are not considered a tradition of the manga industry.

But the pure nature of manga lies in the sanctity of black and white. I don't expect that to change any time soon.
