"Manga" are Japanese comic books/graphic novels. The word literally means "whimsical pictures" in Japanese.

Manga is different from American comic books in many ways, which is why it is sometimes translated as graphic novels. Comic books in America tend to be colored, sold in thin booklets, and written for a teenage male audience. Manga is almost always black and white, serialized in manga collections before being sold in bound books, and has many different genres appealing to many different audiences. There are romantic manga for adult women, mob dramas for older men, cute fantasy comedies for young girls, and much, much more. Just about everyone in Japan reads manga, and there is something to suit every taste.

Manga series are often animated into television shows and movies. See anime.

Manga or "to do a Mange" is a word that can describe a comic situation which usually, but not exclusively can happen during the influence of alcohol and/or drugs etc.

For a classic Mange situation we need to go back to the roots, to a dark and chilly night in Stockholm, Sweden 2016.
Step 1: Get so drunk that you forget what the time is and miss your train home.
Step 2: Convince a colleague/friend that you can crash at their place.
Step 3: The friend sends an SMS with the address, code for the gate, floor number and promise to leave the front door open and put a blanket on the sofa.
Step 4: Go to the above mentioned address and pass out on the sofa.
Step 5: Wake up in the morning and pat the head of the little girl who is standing next to you and wondering who you are.

Step 6: Quickly think that your friend is a great guy who is babysitting a child so early in the morning then go back to sleep.
Step 7: Wake-up by a massive dude standing above you in his underwear wondering who the F**K you are and why you are in his sofa.
Step 8: Sober up, fast!
Step 9: Quickly realise that you by accident have walked into a strangers apartment. Same floor, same Surname on the door, unlocked door, same address but different gate, for which the code worked for.
Step 10: Get the hell out of dodge without sustaining any injuries or before the police arrive on the scene.
Step 11: Become a legend at work the day after having done a Mange / Manga / To do a Mange

Noun. Either Spanish for mango, or a Japanese-style comic book. (Go to mango for more info on the first definition.) Manga is a Japanese-style comic book, (Like I said earlier.) Manga has grown lots of fans in Japan, U.S.A., Europe, and other countries. It has 2 basic styles, Shoujo and Shounen. Shoujo is the girly, romantic, comedy types, like Fruits Basket or Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama. Shounen is the action, violentish types, like Dragon Ball and Naruto. There are 2 ways to read it: Translated (The Japanese words are translated to your language) or Raw (No edits, the original Japanese thing). Manga is commonly black and white, sometimes with color pages. A manga story is divided into chapters. Every chapter comes out each week. A group of chapters in one book is a volume. Manga has evolved into anime, a animated version of the story. (See anime for more info about it)

1. A Japanese graphic novel.
Not to be mistaken with Japanese porn comics called HENTAI, which is actually a sub-category under the general category, Manga.
Manga is generally read from left to right, and from the last page to the first, unlike an English book.

2. A Malayalam\Tamil word for mango(a sweet tropical fruit that usually ripens in the summer).
1. I have read a manga about a samurai warrior.

2. I had a 'manga' after lunch.
