There are many comics published across the globe every day, and you probably have come across several Japanese comics, also called manga. The term generally pertains to comic series produced and released in Japan. Other countries, especially Algeria, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, have released original comics which are heavily influenced by the manga style.
Oldest semblances of manga date back to the Heian period, dubbed Chōjū jinbutsu giga, commonly abbreviated as Chōjū giga, which directly translates to “animal cartoons.” Japanese manga has had widespread renown because nowadays everyone can easily access international entertainment content.
With digital technology services such as tankōbon localization, offline and online readers consistently help manga’s popularity spread worldwide. Important manga titles are often distributed across different continents and countries, and then localized into multiple languages right after the release of single series book volumes in Japan called tankōbon. Tankōbon is most frequently used in reference to independent volumes of a single manga title. From the midpoint of the 20th century until today, most series initially emerge as individual chapters in famous publications in Japan such as Weekly Shōnen Jump, Weekly Shōnen Magazine, etc.
