Manga Mad – Video/Short Documentary

Sorry that my blog has been dead as of lately all. During winter break I went into hibernation and it has been hard to get back into the blogging sphere. I hope to write up something on Hotel Dusk: Room 215 soon… and since those words have now been etched into blog-stone, I have to hold myself to it!

Meanwhile, here is a short and interesting documentary called Manga Mad, which is about manga in Japan, and its impact on Japanese culture. Some of the subtitles made me go :/ but overall it was a fascinating video that I would recommend people to watch – especially manga beginners (and it’s free to watch on YouTube. Which makes everyone happy in this age). And if you’re an offical manga guru/otaku, it’s worth watching for the images of Japan alone.

If you ever wanted to know what manga is, but didn’t have a clue where to start, check this out. You’ll learn something.

    So why does Eastern culture embrace video games and cartoons while us Western supporters are forced to languish in the minority, it’s not fair I tell you!

    @Drake Sigar: I know right? I feel left out in the scheme of things. I'd like to see more people reading manga on the bus as it would make trips a lot more interesting. Or creepy.

    @Kenton Larson: I laughed out loud when I read that. Awesome.
