our story

Passing on Skills to the Next Generation!

Katsushika Hokusai, one of the most renowned Ukiyoe artists from the Edo period, is widely known for his series "36 Views of Mount Fuji." However, he also created manga, a term first coined for his collection titled "Hokusai Manga." Hokusai referred to his manga as "Sozoro-ga," which translates to "pictures drawn freely without any specific plan." Hokusai's manga generously shared his profound drawing knowledge. Therefore, the name "Sozoroo" was inspired by the ambition to generously offer the advanced production techniques of Japanese manga and anime to people worldwide. Upholding the motto, "Learn Manga & Anime From Japanese Professionals," our online school, Sozoroo, provides users with easy access to learn the most cutting-edge production techniques of Japanese manga and anime. Aimed at becoming professionals, our service offers an affordable and convenient solution for all.
