Webtoon and manga are two different forms of comics. Manga is a traditional form of Japanese comics that dates back to the early 1900s. Webtoon, on the other hand, is a more recent form that originated in South Korea in the early 2000s. Now, it is also popular in Japan, with Piccoma making the biggest revenue among the smartphone apps in the country in 2019.
Manga is typically printed in black and white and is read from right to left. Manga artists often use a lot of detail and shading in their drawings. On the other hand, webtoon artists use bright colors and simple lines to create their animations.
Webtoons are usually read from left to right. They are also often released as episodes or “chapters” usually 10-15 minutes long. Manga is typically released as tankōbon, collections of chapters that are often released quarterly. Manga is serialized in Manga magazines, while webtoons are published online.
Now that we know the key differences between the two, it is time to explore the same thing that the enthusiasts are raving about: Manga and webtoon animation. What is it, why do you need it, and how do you do it? Find out with CCCI!

Imagine your favorite characters coming to life. Through animation, your readers can see the characters move and interact with each other in ways that were not possible before.
The secret to the popularity of animating manga and webtoon animation is that they can capture the essence of the original story while also adding their own spin to it. They are also gaining popularity because they can tell stories that are not limited by time or space. In other words, anything is possible!
Manga animation is the process of animating manga. This can be done by either hand-drawing the frames or by using computer software. Manga animation is often used to create promotional videos or “trailers” for upcoming manga releases. It can also be used to create music videos set to popular songs.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Bleach, or One-Punch Man–all these mangas have already been brought to life through animation! You can allow manga readers and enthusiasts to see their favorites in action.
Another great thing about animating your manga is that it does not have to be limited to traditional black and white drawings. Manga artists can now use color in their drawings, which opens up a whole new world of possibilities for the art form.
Like manga, webtoon animation can be done by hand-drawing the frames or using computer software. It often uses a “panning” effect to simulate the reading experience of a webtoon. This means that the background remains stationary while the characters and objects move across the screen.
Webtoon animation is also often used to create promotional videos or “trailers” for upcoming webtoon releases. Naver Webtoon, one of the most popular platforms for webtoons, has already started animating some of its most popular titles.
We have all seen the trend of webtoons being adapted into K-dramas. Another way to make webtoons even more appealing and popular is by animating them! Fans of the original webtoon can see their favorite characters in a new light.
The thing about webtoons getting animated is that you can use them to create a wide variety of effects. For example, you can use animations to create the illusion of movement in a still image. You can also use animations to create “skeletal” versions of webtoons, which can be used for many purposes.
