The series like Vagabond, Vinland Saga, Ichigo Mashimaro, Made in Abyss, Planetes, I am Hero, Gantz, Inuyashiki, and Yotsubato have such a surrealist and detailed background style. Did they get paid more than a regular one? Or the wages for every chapter they made are same with the other mangaka?

"These" mangaka have put a lot of effort for like adding detail to the background and such, the character, the environment, and so. I know other manga had some detail for their own style like Akame ga Kill, Toriko, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh! (in this context, the monster illustration in all of Yu-Gi-Oh! cards).

Compare it with "other mangaka", I thought they should get paid more but, but did they?


I think a mangaka gets paid according to how popular his/her manga is, but new manga artist get paid +- $100 per page. They don't care if it's more detailed or not, they only care about how popular the manga is.

Read the manga Bakuman, it will answer all your questions on manga.
