Haven't found any black and white anime, save for Astro Boy. But I think for it to be done well it would have to be truly black and white. As in no grayscale. Maybe the occasional use of one other color. But I think part of what makes anime so beautiful is the contrast, and taking that to the extreme, could be really cool.

Now that I think about it, I don't think I would like colored manga. Part of what makes manga so cool, is the creative ways they use two colors, to create such great works of art, and compelling stories.

Actually, isn't this kind of how it used to be? Most comics/Manga, albeit thinner, were in color, while most television was black and white, or worse; sepia. I suppose if you preferred it that way, you could dredge up a bunch of stuff from years back, but I think things have changed for the best.

Regardless, I would like manga to be in color, but it's already expensive as it is, and having worked in a print shop, the idea of printing it all in color would make the price skyrocket.

In truth, though, I really don't read much manga; If I'm reading, I prefer a good book over a comic book.

I don't know if the Japanese have ever made color comics. And its not like comics are the old style and manga, the new. The comic book industry is still alive and well.

Besides I think a better question, is whether black and white anime or colored manga could work in today's world. As I said before B&W anime would be really cool if it was just black and white, and not a grayscale. I tried googling around, but all I could find was an anime called Black and White. Does anyone remember that scene from Samurai Jack, where he was a white ninja fighting a black ninja in a room of shadows and light? I'm talking about something like that. And if anyone could find that clip, I would be eternally grateful.

Yes, they made, and still make color comics. I had a friend of mine go to Japan and bring back a stack of them. Half were... innappropriate...

He then expected me to be able to translate them..

I remember that scene from Samurai Jack, and if my computer didn't suck, I could get you that segment, as I have all of the Samurai Jack DVD's. Well, I'm missing one or two, but I'm pretty sure I've got that episode...
