Manga origins

MANGA ORIGINS

The History of manga originates from scrolls dating back to the 12th century,however whether these scrolls are actually manga is still disputed, though its believed they represent the basis for the right-to-left reading style. Other authors report origins closer to the 18th century. Manga is a Japanese term that generally means “comics” or “cartoon”, literally “whimsical sketches.” Historians and writers on manga history have described two broad and complementary processes shaping modern manga. Their views differ in the relative importance they attribute to the role of cultural and historical events following World War II versus the role of pre-War, Meiji, and pre-Meiji Japanese culture and art.

The first view emphasizes events occurring during and after the U.S. Occupation of Japan (1945-1952), and stresses that manga was strongly shaped by United States cultural influences, including U.S. comics brought to Japan by the GIs and by images and themes from U.S. television, film, and cartoons.According to Sharon Kinsella, the booming post-war Japanese publishing industry helped create a consumer-oriented society in which publishing giants like Kodansha could shape popular taste.

Astro Boy is the first Japanese television series that embodied the aesthetic that later became familiar worldwide as anime.It originated as a manga in 1952 by Osamu Tezuka, revered in Japan as the “God of Manga.”After enjoying success abroad, Astro Boy was remade in the 1980s as Shin Tetsuwan Atomu, known as Astroboy in other countries, and again in 2003. In November 2007, he was named Japan’s envoy for overseas safety.An American computer-animated 3-D film based on the original manga series by Tezuka was released on October 23, 2009.

MANGA GENRES

Shounen Ai/Yaoi:
Often synonymous with yaoi, this can be thought of as somewhat less extreme. “Boy’s Love”, so to speak.Yaoi (やおい?) also known as Boys’ Love, is a popular Japanese term for female-oriented fictional media that focus on homoerotic or homoromantic male relationships, usually created by female authors. Originally referring to a specific type of dōjinshi (self-published works) parody of mainstream anime and manga works, yaoi came to be used as a generic term for female-oriented manga, anime, dating sims, novels and dōjinshi featuring idealized homosexual male relationships.The two participants in a yaoi relationship (sometimes also in yuri) are often referred to as seme (“attacker”,攻め or せめ) and uke (“receiver”,受け)The seme and uke are often drawn in the bishōnen style and are “highly idealised”,blending both masculine and feminine qualities.Shonen Ai/Yaoi manga:Loveless,Junjo Romantica,Black Knight etc.

Seinen means “young Man.” Manga and anime that specifically targets young adult males around the ages of 18 to 25 are seinen titles. The stories in seinen works appeal to university students and those in the working world. Typically the story lines deal with the issues of adulthood.

Ecchi:
Possibly the line between hentai and non-hentai, ecchi usually refers to fanservice put in to attract a certain group of fans.

MANGAKA

Mangaka (漫画家?) is the Japanese word for a comic artist or cartoonist. Outside of Japan, manga usually refers to a Japanese comic book and mangaka refers to the author of the manga, who is usually Japanese. As of 2006, about 3000 professional mangaka were working in Japan.[1]

Some artists may study for a few years at an art college, manga school, or take on an apprenticeship with another mangaka, before entering the world of manga as a professional artist. However, there are some that just start in manga, without being an assistant by applying to contests that various magazines run. For example, Naoko Takeuchi, author of Sailor Moon, who won such a contest sponsored by Kodansha, and Osamu Tezuka, creator of Astro Boy started out without being an assistant.

A mangaka will slowly rise to prominence through recognition of their ability when they spark the interest of various institutions, individuals or a demographic of manga consumers. For example, there are various contests which prospective mangaka may enter, sponsored by some of the leading manga editors and publishers in the field. They are also recognized for the number of manga they run at one time.
