No, not Japanese comic book porn. Manga usually come before anime. It is comic books or print cartoons, all in one book. Genres of manga are action-adventure, romance, sports and games, historical drama, comedy, science fiction and fantasy, mystery, horror, sexuality, and business and commerce, and more, sexuality being your comic book porn. In 2006, in Japan, 481 billion yen (4.4 billion dollars) worth of manga was sold. In the same year, in the United States, 175-200 million dollars worth of manga. Manga is usually in black and white, but they some full-color manga exist. A Japanese manga artist is called a mangaka. Manga, literally translated, means 'whimsical pictures.' The word came in common usage in the late 18th century. The first manga magazine was created in 1874, Eshinbun Nipponchi is the name of the manga magazine. In 1905 the manga magazine publishing boom started with the Russo-Japanese War, starting with Tokyo Pakku. A female version of the manga was made, Shojo Sekai, the first shojo (heterosexual romance) magazine was made. Shonen Sekai is the first shounen made, created in 1895. Scanlations exist in this world, fan-scanned manga, either for fun or for helping expand the manga-loving community.

First of all you have to get straight that Shogen Ai is guy-guy action and Shoujo Ai is girl-girl action so if your not into that check out the description first ^_^; and manga is the comicbook virsion of any and all anime. Usually anima shows start out becaues readers respond well to the manga!! (So buy Kill Me Kiss ME)There are tons of them out there and you can tell in drawing which is anime or manga becaues manga is lighter and anime has bolder lines and more color and realistic. yep......

A word used to describe a new level of uncool in north american contemporary culture. Ranked on a higher and larger scale of wierdos, due to their liking for animated porn rathen then something a little more humanistic they have grown to replace the rediculousness of the emo cultue, believe it or not. Aside from the general definitons relating to graphic novels, television, art, etc. Someone who is manga is generally an awkward individual, with either bad hygene, low self-esteem, few friends, and a craving sense of individulity. In some cases they will resemble all of the above. This term is generally used to define the individuals over the age of 13 that continue to enjoy pokemon and sailor moon. As far as the manga children go, we can't have hopes too high in the field of literacy, considering a graphic novel takes less then an afternoon to read, though i will admit it does take skill to follow a series of speech bubbles and caption boxes.
