Manga has a long and glorious past steeped in their homeland and special culture. Japan has witnessed capitalism and democracy, and theories that no other western states can compare. Art and culture flourished and grew under its numerous rulers, and today Japan has a distinctive culture and art movements that are characteristic of Japanese. Manga is one of those genres of art that has grown and flourished in Japan but is admired worldwide.

Manga has its origins in Kibyoshi, influential 18th and 19th century Japanese picture books, and they were considered to be the first strictly adult picture books for adults. Some people believe that Manga was originally influenced by scrolls drawn on in the 12th century, but Isao Takahata, and others like him maintain that there is no clear link between the scrolls and modern Manga. Others still believe American films and cartoons inspired Manga.

Two Manga series were introduced in the middle of the 20th century as Japan was dealing with a political transformation, Machiko Hasegawa's Sazae-and Osamo Tezuka's Astro Boy (originally called Mighty Atom), a fan favourite that endured through the decades and influenced many of the later series.

Not only because of their stylistic excellence, but also because they reflected a changed society, free from dictatorship and military regime, these Mangas were revolutionary. The characters were brave, and the nation reflected a new century.

Manga is now a global power, and is being read in several countries. Its success is due to its distinctive drawing style, as well as stories that smash the language barriers. Mangas adapts many American films and TV shows.
