While Marvel comics show their American appeal around the world, Manga is easily gaining popularity within the United States. Today’s manga has been enjoyed by Japanese culture for more than half a century and its popularity in Japan spans all generations. Manga is a Japanese word for a style of comics that illustrates a certain cinema technique with continuous action, great plot lines and characters within the story that have wonderful expressions. In American culture, comic book sales are aimed at a group of young people of a certain age, while Japanese manga is aimed at all age groups, young and old.
Today’s manga has its own style of art and in particular they have their own style of drawing faces, fronts, chins, noses, eyes and expressions. You read Manga story books instead of how English-speaking countries do it. You start reading from the back of the book and read each page from right to left. Manga is a narrative style that is also artistic in the way it is done. Great works of art have been published using Manga style techniques and are highly appreciated in Japanese culture.
The differences with the Japanese manga style and the American comics are found in each American comic volume, each comic has its own separate plot. The Manga style will follow the same pattern throughout the life of Manga’s volumes. This is the reason why Manga books are sometimes thought of as a graphic novel. Many of the inner pages of Japanese manga culture are illustrated in black and white drawings and also each volume is serialized within a bound book. In Japan, manga is read as a continuous serialized monthly volume or as a novel compiled in a complete series of a book as a graphic novel. In the United States today, comics are not respected too much as art or literature. In Japan, manga is a highly respected form of art and literature. Since the manga is highly respected in Japan, many of the series find their way into television shows and movies.
Being Manga the ideal medium for Japanese culture, it is easier to tell a story about what you want to your readers. This makes it easy to describe complicated descriptions that matter in a story. Using Manga as a tool to deliver a message like a story is really helping companies realize the power of Manga. If you took full sales of American comics against Japanese manga all year, the manga exceeds comic book sales in just 1 week. That is the power of manga literature. Manga has a reach for all young people to seniors and in all areas of life.
