A History of Japanese Manga...and Japanese Tendencies

CDG: "Ah. The Japanese Manga, or Japanese comic. They are dissimilar in style from their Western counterparts: comic books. Comic books that are not short on colorful pages of super heroes, heroines, villains, and an extra dose of testosterone -- all taking place in action packed and enthralling scenarios. However, one major difference between the two styles of comics is that Japanese Manga is read from the left to the right, and from top to bottom. And when people think of Manga, they often associate it with Cos-play. As the Information Age swung into full swing, scanlation groups begin to walk a slippery slope -- however, they were not put on ice just yet. The problem stemmed from some of the more obscure Manga not seeing a postmortem release in the states after being published in Japan. My personal history with Manga dates back to being a child and falling in love with the characters and artwork. I wanted to imitate these characters in my own artwork." (Anime, Cosplay, Manga)
