Bland-new CYBERMANGA for you
Tsugumi Nishino and Kohei Nishino have tried to create a next-generation manga style since 1996. Computers and the Internet changed not only our life but also the way of reading manga. When manga were released from paper media, we found the big possibility of manga expression. We formed a new manga artists group "GADGET'S200X" for that purpose.
And now, finally, we would like to propose a new manga style called "CYBERMANGA" for manga fans all over the world.
We hope you'll like them!! And please tell me what you think.
