we love Anime, not because we are afraid of reality. Anime is just a higher version of reality which only we can understand

A number of artists in the United States have drawn comics and cartoons influenced by manga. As an early example, Vernon Grantdrew manga-influenced comics while living in Japan in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Others include Frank Miller's mid-1980s Ronin, Adam Warren and Toren Smith's 1988 The Dirty Pair, Ben Dunn's 1987 Ninja High School and Manga Shi 2000 from Crusade Comics(1997).
By the 21st century several U.S. manga publishers had begun to produce work by U.S. artists under the broad marketing-label of manga. In 2002 I.C. Entertainment, formerly Studio Ironcatand now out of business, launched a series of manga by U.S. artists called Amerimanga. In 2004 eigo MANGA launched the Rumble Pakand Sakura Pakk anthology series. Seven Seas Entertainment followed suit with World Manga. Simultaneously, TokyoPop introduced original English- language manga (OEL manga) later renamed Global Manga.
Francophone artists have also developed their own versions of manga, like Frédéric Boilet's la nouvelle manga. Boilet has worked in France and in Japan, sometimes collaborating with Japanese artists.
