The purpose of this research is to explore the role of trust in the creation process of Japanese manga (comics) using the case research method with focus on the dyadic relationship between the mangaka (manga author) and the editor. Though creating manga is an individual effort, interactive production is rather common in Japan. Ideation is personal but there are bound to exist factors that can act as drivers of the creation system. It is necessary to explore how this dyadic relationship works and evolves, and to identify the factors that facilitate ideation and the subsequent manga production process. Further, in this research, the case of one of the most famous professional duos of manga will be examined.
