    Thumbs up Manga Popular?

    Do you think manga is as popular as it should be? I mean, not a lot of people know about manga, even though it is said that manga has been spreading quickly. I think it hasn't been treated as it should be.

    Manga will grow in popoularity and fade as the next big thing comes. Frankly, i'm very happy with anime/manga forever being a niche market. The more mainstream it becomes, the lower the standards become in translating and we will be treated with the likes of Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon while quality titles are ignored. I'm happy with the industry peaking at this point.

    peaking? The industry is an $11 Billion dolar industry. and It is still growing! I dought very much that the popularity of anime and manga is nowhere near peaking! Like Everlasting said. Not many peeople know about it. So anime and manga have alot of room grow. I believe that anime and manga will be here to stay. like WB or Diesney.

    Manga's the same as comics. There's certain types of people who are into it, and certain types of people who would rather just sit there and watch a movie instead of read a book. It's popular, don't get me wrong.

    Mnga is bigger in japan then the us, so i think it will grow but it isnt great to read manga as much as watching the anime. I know alot of people thik manga is better i disagree.

    depends on the series. if it is going from manga to anime the mange series is usually better. But if it's going from anime series to manga then usually it's the anime that's better. It all depends of the series.

    Maybe you're right. Maybe manga/anime are going to remain here as long as time will take us, but I'm not trying to say that it's leaving. I'm just saying maybe it's peaking, as said before. To make it short: I think it's peaking, but it's still here to stay.

    Manga's arent that popular. I made a fan comic that spent a fortune and it was pretty well done and the story was so special to me, but in the end no one bought it and I was so sad.

    Manga definitely isn't as popular as it should be. Most anime fans don't seem to understand that the series leaves out things that the manga has. The distribution of manga may be one reason why people don't know much about it. Here I know of 2 places you can buy manga out of like a few hundred stores and things there are very few that sell manga. I think that if more stores would sell it and display it prominantly that it would become more popular.

    Yes, yes, yes, i completly agree although there was a thread on this called 'Anime vs Manga' and manga was winning, had like 30 votes i think, can't remember, i'm not gonna give some long paragraph just so people will ignore it, but it's the roots, it's uncut, and it's better!

    Manga is basically Japanese comics, and like anything, will have those that like it and those that don't. I guess it depends on where you live if you want to talk about popularity (it's popular where I am). As for how popular it should be: why generalize it? There's so many different types that saying that it should be popular is like saying a certain type of music should be popular. Ir may gain in popularity, it may lose (and I'm pretty sure it will do both), but like anything else, what happens will happen. I still like it though.

    I have a problem with that, people saying they don't like something without trying it. The ONLY time I don't have a problem with it is when it crosses into something you consider sacred. Seeing as how manga more than likely doesn't fall into that category, it just gets annoying, people judging it when they don't know what they're talking about!

    lol, manga is very popular. yet in my school, a lot of people don't take it out in public and read it. They call the people who read manga and watched anime, "anime freaks".
    -.-;;; Like i care, they all know me as the artist. blah. But thats besides the point! Manga should be treated like any other book. And yea! Plus its interesting to read. Also your voc. list expands more. and they said that reading "comic" books won't teach you anything. But Manga is not a comic book. It's a Japanese comic book, so theres a difference! (better pictures and story-lines)

    I don't think distribution is a problem cause in every major bookstore here like Barnes & Noble and Borders manga is sold. Though I do think the price for manga is a turn off.

    We think a flower on a cliff is beautiful
    because we stop our feet at the cliff's edge,
    unable to step out into the sky
    like that fearless flower

    it may be true about the distribution problem.
    in my country the distribution's quite well. but they would put more effort for children and shoujo type manga as they can draw more attention for the income. as the high quality manga that contain something children may better not see are restricted to be published, but it's the reason then many illegal publisher take their effort to publish those. and thus become problem and.... ah I don't know

    the lower the standards become in translating and we will be treated with the likes of Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon while quality titles are ignored.
    How is this not happening now?

    Any way, manga/comics are still a niche market and will likely always be that way. Comics were MUCH more mainstream not thirty years ago. But thanks to declining interest, and other sources of engrossing fanatsy readily availible such as video games an tv comics have become passť so to speak. It doesn't help the comics have become very expensive case and point a single manga can cost 12$ or more. American comics are generally cheaper but they have a problem all there own. U.s comic are ludicisly self indulgent. You have these ridiculously long story arcs that span hundreds of issuses leaving newbies to that comic totally screwed. One of the reasons I stopped buying u.s comics.

    Manga is basically Japanese comics, and like anything, will have those that like it and those that don't. I guess it depends on where you live if you want to talk about popularity (it's popular where I am). As for how popular it should be: why generalize it? There's so many different types that saying that it should be popular is like saying a certain type of music should be popular. Ir may gain in popularity, it may lose (and I'm pretty sure it will do both), but like anything else, what happens will happen. I still like it though.

    I agree, here in holland manga is far from populiar atlist i never saw any comic laying in any store around here. We are mostly in donald ducks, tina and some pony magazine. i woulden't mind if some store sold it, now i have to borrow the movies froms friends not bad but still a own little collection would be nice. The only japanese movie i have seen in a store is puca and i am not even sure if thats kwalified as anime.
