[91] University education Kyoto Seika University in Japan has offered a highly competitive course in manga since 2000. [92] [93] Then, several established universities and vocational schools ( 専門学校 : Semmon gakkou) established a training curriculum . Shuho Sato , who wrote Umizaru and Say Hello to Black Jack , has created some controversy on Twitter . Sato says "Manga school is meaningless because those schools have very low success rates. Then, I could teach novices required skills on the job in three months. Meanwhile, those school students spend several million yen, and four years, yet they are good for nothing." and that, "For instance, Keiko Takemiya , the then professor of Seika Univ. , remarked in the Government Council that 'A complete novice will be able to understand where is "Tachikiri" (i.e., margin section ) during four years.' On the other hand, I would imagine that, It takes about thirty minutes to completely understand that at work." [94]
