MANGA, What is it REALLY?

Manga are comics created in Japan, or by Japanese creators in the Japanese language, conforming to a style developed in Japan in the late 19th century.They have a long, complex pre-history in earlier Japanese art.

Kanagaki Robun and Kawanabe Kyosai created the first manga magazine in 1874: Eshinbun Nipponchi. The magazine was heavily influenced by Japan Punch, founded in 1862 by Charles Wirgman, a British cartoonist. Eshinbun Nipponchi had a very simple style of drawings and did not become popular with many people. Eshinbun Nipponchi ended after three issues. The magazine Kisho Shimbun in 1875 was inspired by Eshinbun Nipponchi, which was followed by Marumaru Chinbun in 1877, and then Garakuta Chinpo in 1879. Shōnen Sekai was the first shōnen magazine created in 1895 by Iwaya Sazanami, a famous writer of Japanese children's literature back then. Shōnen Sekai had a strong focus on the First Sino-Japanese War.

Sorry for the quick history lesson, I really thought it was the same thing as ANIME... I really need to get my terms right or Anime Central Convention will eat me alive...


 You might ask yourself what that is, well look below in today's earlier posts. Also... I am really hating the CAPTCHA sites, I have great friends with great posts and still they leave these damn things on. Topper too is then they have the "Approval" on too... trust me you can just turn off "ANONYMOUS" and 95% of your worries are gone. So to those friends, sorry I visit... no more comments.

  1. I like anime but never a big Manga fan. I don't think I'm the target age group anyway.
    I have a couple people I visit that I'm going to mention the word verification to because I don't think they know it's on.

  2. Jeremy, I agree about the captcha, but I won't go so far as saying no comments.

  4. I love anime and manga - for a while I thought they were the same thing as well. I like both, though each has their own positive aspects. Manga is the original form of anime, so it's often more true to the intended story, and has less fillers, but anime can make the story more in depth. I love them both :)

  8. hahahaha I do the same thing as you do! I set it to no Anonymous and it's perfect, no captcha and no spam all at the same time! Hahaha I was seriously thinking about doing a post letting people know there is a way to get rid of these pesky things and eliminate spam, now you've convinced me. I'll have to now.

  9. I draw the line at Captchas. Just not worth it to try and leave a comment. If people don't get it by now then there's nothing I can do to help them.

  10. so now that you know the difference between manga and animee will you feel offended if I call animees "some Japanese cartoons" - that's the best way to drive my boyfriend crazy... :)

  11. 1874! I had no idea it was such an old traditional. I am not a robot!

  12. Wow. I never realized Manga was that old. Will I burn in hell if I say that I look at all stories like that as comic books? *ducks behind a table...

    I hate captcha. Seriously. Have of them take me 3 or 4 times to be able to read the damn code. I no longer allow anonymous comments and yes, that helps. And while I'm not as rabid over *approval* delays still they aren't my favorite blogs. I tend not to visit either very often.

  13. Don't know much about Manga, but my friend Jeremy wrote a post about it, so at least I know something ;-) Not an anime fan because the one movie I saw a fish turned into a girl...just sayin' that's weird man...
    CAPTCH? I have two great graphics free for the taking dear readers of the great Retro: CAPTCHA FREE BLOG, one with figures, a human and a robot and the caption "Together, we can make a difference." Stop by, grab them and join the revolution. I won't comment on those either.

  14. That captcha stuff really turns me off of a site quicker than anything else. There was only one I continued to visit during the challenge but the rest saw me "one and done". I read but give no comment.

  15. The only manga I have read is OH, MY GODDESS, and I have watched the anime of it as well. I like the anime, NOIR, but distributors charge too much for those DVD's!! :-)

  16. I'm a fan of 'old school' anime....."Speed Racer", "Gatchaman", etc. I'm not quite up to speed on the new stuff, though.

[Retro] Love the Comments, not so much the Spam... so I have enough man-pills, fake gold watches and link-back options that I need. Thank you!

No More Anonymous Monkeys to much of the above mentioned, sorry sometimes I get some nice things.
