VoxWatch: The Japanese try to work out why foreigners like manga. By asking visitors to Comiket.
Japanese manga have great stories. On the other hand, American comics can be very dark and depressing. Japanese manga also use male and female characters who are normal, everyday people and so its easy to relate to them.
I read a lot of shounen manga (manga oriented towards young males) and I think the stories are interesting. The way characters learn new skills is drawn out in depth and its very fun to watch. And I like how not just young people, but everyone in Japan reads manga.

They say I am a work in progress. The fools.
As one could guess, this put severe restrictions on an industry that, in large part, had been selling horror, war, and romance comics. So how did the industry cope? Did the storytelling suffer? To examine this, I was able to track down some comic stories that were published before and reprinted after the imposition of the Code. These stories provide a sort of litmus test to see exactly what effect the Code was having on comic book stories.
