Even a Monkey Can Draw Manga (サルでも描けるまんが教室 Saru demo egakeru manga kyōshitsu?) is a parody instructional book by Koji Aihara and Kentaro Takekuma. The series was serialized in Shogakukan's Big Comic Spirits and in Viz Media's Pulp from May 2001 to August 2002.[1][2] Shogakukan published the manga's three tankōbon volumes between October 1990 and May 1992.[3][4] It is licensed in North America by Viz Media.[5]


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] Carlos Santos commends the manga for its "rundown of every major genre, by demographic" and praises the manga above other "How-to Art" books.[8]
