Popularity can only be explained by one thing: People like it. It's all a matter of preference, my friend.


I would think anime would be more popular due to the fact that the new generations are just becomming more and more, lazy... Yes, I will go with lazy.

Why read a real book, when you can read manga, why read manga, when you can watch anime!

Obviously that's a grouse over generalisation and your right, there will be alot of people with their own personal preference as well, but part of that preference might be that they are lazy.



umm wouldnt the people have to read subtitles ... unless they like wacthing dubs

You think subtitles contain as much written communication as a book?
The laziness also lies in their inability to turn the page.

Because manga is like a graphic novel-- no need to read chunks of writing, and you get to look at pictures too. haha
and because I think in japan reading manga is widely accepted as if it were an everyday thing. So you'll find mangas for little girls all the way up to older men. And quite a few animes were originally mangas. -- and so why shouldn't it be somewhat popular?

OH! and apparently the new prime minister of japan loves manga, and when he was campaigning to be elected (or something like that), the manga sales in Japan went up. lols

i like manga's better because its faster to read and you can finish like ten chapters in one day if you have not much to do. anime on the other hand will take you a whole thirty minutes and if you skip the intro and the ending song thingys you have like 28 minutes
plus mangas you can read anywhere. school, bus, mall, subway, store, church, and lots of other random places
anime however you can only watch at certain places t.v, laptop..

point proven.

i don't care what people say, this is my opinion, anime rocks although most of them are off manga.
