"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.

A word coined by fans of the Dynasty Warriors video games with two usages. Derived from Lu Bu, a character in these video games.

"Lu Bu'd" is sometimes used as an adjective by fans to describe a character whose attack power has been substantially increased, making him or her as powerful as Lu Bu and as difficult to defeat.

"Lu Bu'd" can also mean the act of being defeated by Lu Bu, or a Lu Bu'd character. With this usage, it means the same thing as owned.
"OMFG, Lu Bu'd Zhao Yun in the Nanman Campaign is almost impossible to defeat."
