Manga are comics originate in Japan and have a uniquely Japanese style. These comics have started being produced at the end of the 19th century and have been influenced by the Japanese art.
In Japan, the term ‘manga’ is associated to both comics and cartooning; instead, in the rest of the world, the word ‘manga’ refers only to comics which are produced in Japan.
Different are the topics covered by manga including action-adventure, business and commerce, historical drama, comedy, detective, mystery, romance, science fiction and fantasy, sports and games, suspense and sexuality.
Nowadays, many mangas are translated into different languages and have become popular and read all around the world. As well as this, since the 1950s, these comics have been a major part of the Japanese publishing sector.
Despite the existence full-colour mangas, these stories are usually printed in black and white and serialised in manga magazines. If the series is successful, this can be published again in volumes, as well as converted into animations.
With the digital development and the advent of the Internet, mangas have started being uploaded and sold online. In Japan, web mangas have become popular and many manga creators have started promoting their mangas online.
