i think the japanese is REALLY good at anime stuffs. BUT, (here comes the big BUT) since you used the word 'MANGA', then are you refering to jap? cause manga is for comics in jap? but as far as im sure, 90% of anime comes from japan.


I heard a statistic somewhere that about 45% of all the world's animation comes from Japan.

wait i think i got it

if you write in japan it's a manga

if you write it in the US it's a comic


but there are so many sub-genres of western comics. There are comic strips, superhero comics, web comics etc. I refer to it as manga because of the stylizations typical in manga.

Yes, manga is what the books are called in Japan... They say it different words each country, I think.. Like, COMIC BOOKs in english amd MANHWA in Korean..

Manga is from Japan, no ifs ands or buts. Does that mean comics drawn in manga style and made by a non-Japanese person are bad? No. (Unless, of course, it sucks.) I love Megatokyo. Amerimanga (and other countries' manga) rocks!

Its just that Japan has invented a good style of drawing cartoon and thats called Manga
u can also hav american manga but most of it is in manga style which the most people will consider it as Japanese.

I really like Bizenghast, yet I have some friends who say that Bizenghast isn't really manga and that all manga has to be from Japan. Bizenghast set in Massachusitts, and it's made by an american author, but it looks like manga to me artistic style wise. So I was wondering. For somthing to be true manga or anime does it have to just stylisticallly look asian, or do you think it has to be from Japan or Korea to really be manga/anime. So is it an artistic or cultral category. No wandering off topic although you can discuss similar anime and manga. Here's a pic for those wondering what the art style of Bizenghast is like

anime is strictly japanese STYLE but doesn't have to com from japan
south park in no way is related to anime

Manga is a Japanese graphic novel
marvel comics has nothing to do with manga for example
