Reception[edit]

Pat King from Animefringe commends the manga for its "excellent parody of the manga industry" and its artwork that "would be right at home in classic issues of Mad Magazine".[6] Johanna Draper Carlson from Comics Worth Reading comments on the "vulgar but funny" adult contents of the manga with its "nudity and various scatological gags".[7] Carlo Santos commends the manga for its "rundown of every major genre, by demographic" and praises the manga above other "How-to Art" books.[8]
