Yes...American manga is probably just as much as a paradox, if it even exists. But then wouldn't Korean manga have the same contradiction? It is, after all, not Japanese.


they're called manhwa


Interesting...are they a whole separate thing from the Japanese manga scene?

Thats a whole other can of worms. Manga = Japanese, Manwha = Korean, Manhua = Chinese....


Impressive, though. That couldn't possibly be it. Different names for all sorts of different countries, I guess.

only the drawing style and the language i believe. i think remember reading that some of the manga (Japanese comics) is actually drawn in S Korea to save on costs and what not.

That makes sense. And by drawn, do you mean literally drawn or printed and published in S.K.?

I know Korean webtoons are (and they are actually called webtoons). Are primarily online and are a completely different format from print manga/manwha. Plus they tend to be free to view, especially while they are in serialization.

Every artist has their own distinct style... Shin-chan vs. Death Note for example.

Huh. Would it be easy to find them subbed in English? I'm interested in sampling these...

Koreans and Chinese have their distinct style, you can tell if it's their work...
Korean, Chinese and Japanese languages are similar :).
Manhwa most of the times does not look like manga. Webtoons look more like Comics.

Ah someone said it. Oh well.

Personally I think that there is more to it than location. Based solely on how I have observed the term being used Anime is both all animation produced by Japan, regardless of style, as well as artistic styles that are considered Japanese in origin.

Well, i would disagree, some manhwa and manhua looks more jap than others
and there are jap mangas that are , well really untraditional and distinct

also, dont forget Hong Kong comics, they are really really nicely drawn, better than most jap seriously and they are coloured, its sad that their industry is super small

In fact, there's enough demand that one of the Korean sites made an official English language site, http://www.webtoons.com/ . There are a few non-Korean ones, but you can generally pick those out by their low ratings. Noblesse and Tower of God are two popular ones that are up to date.
If you hunt around, it's also easy to find other ones that have fan translations.
