Should Manga Animation Remain As
Current Form Of Entertainment?
Besides socializing with friends and sports, entertainment is what we
need to destress and recharge our mind. Such as movies and music. But
what about manga animation? Should it be remain as current form of
For your info, manga is an alternate term for Japanese animation. You
know the characters with big eyes and colourful hair? Those are the
common characteristics that gave Japanese the edge over their American
counterparts in animation and comics where they are the only competing
countries in the 80s and 90s.
Shows like Astro Boy, Spaceship Yamato, Battle Of The Planets, Mobile
Suit Gundam and Macross are their trademarks. Just like most Asians
tend to be influenced strongly by Americans, the Americans themselves
are influenced by Japanese who always remained original in their works
and ahead of the game
One example is their joint venture animation series of Robotech by
Tatsunoko and Harmony Gold Studios. They comprised of 4 totally
unrelated animation series such as Macross, Southern Cross, Mospeada
and Sentinels as well as 2 major blockbuster movies Robotech The Movie
and Robotech: Shadow Chronicles.

Ninja Turtles and Resident Evil Damnation. Other than just normal
comics and videos, they produce games that can integrated into ipads,
iphones and Smart TVs. Same goes for movie download licences into
It is much easier for those born in the 1980s and current new generation
to accept manga animation than the older generation unless the latter are
The fact remains that Japanese are the original creators of manga, CG and
3D. Henceforth their artwork is second to none. Not even the Americans
and the rest of the world as they still have a long way to go. It is precisely
this reason that Americans often merged with Japanese into translating
their works from Japanese to English before showcasing to everyone else.
With that said, manga animation should still remain as current form of
entertainment. Despite the current technology, there is still a huge
market of not just fans but aspiring artistes wanting to learn drawing and
create their own manga. This is apparent with the children, teenagers
and young adults.
