3. Research the History of Manga

Mikele Ray

a. What is the origin of Manga (date and place)) Describe the artform.
The word manga was popularized by the famous woodblock print artist
Hokusai, but, contrary to a popular myth, it was not invented by him. The
word is composed of two Chinese charactersthe first meaning "in spite of
oneself" or "lax" and the second meaning "picture"and has been used to
describe various comical images for at least two centuries.
It was in late eighteenth-century Japan, when a growing middle class of
urban merchants had developed a vibrant consumer culture, that a mangalike medium produced for popular consumption first appeared. Printed in
book form using woodblock technology, kibyshi ("yellow covers") were
storybooks for adults in which narration and dialogue were placed in and
around ink-brush illustrations, often in creative ways that consciously blurred
the distinction between text and picture.

Manga, in Japanese, means "flowing words" or "Undisciplined words". It is an
ancient art that has been used for centuries as a form of entertainment. It's
basicallt Japanese comic books, which can be easily translated to English.
However, just saying manga are comics from Japan is wrong.
First of all, in the US and in Europe, most comics are addressed to young
children between the ages of 9 and 13. That is not the case of manga. There
are 6-7 major types of manga, each having its own audience. Kodomo manga
is for children. Shonen manga is for boys ages 12-18 , Shoujo manga is for
gilrs age 12-18. Josei manga is for adult ladies above the age of 20, mainly
working women. Seinen manga is for young men between the ages of 18 and
30, and Hentai manga is pornographic, adult manga.
