Manga Outside Japan-Introduction:- Manga, or Japanese comics, have appeared in translation in many different languages in different countries, including Brazil, Korea, mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, France, Germany, Mexico, Argentina, Spain, Italy, and many more. France represents about 50% of the European manga market and in 2003 manga represented about one-third of the comics being published in the country. In 2011, this number grew to 40%. In the United States, manga comprises a small (but growing) industry, especially when compared to the inroads that Japanese animationhas made in the USA. One example of a manga publisher in the United States, VIZ Media, functions as the American affiliate of the Japanese publishers Shogakukanand Shueisha. VIZ Media has published many popular titles such as Dragon Ball, One Piece, Detective Conan, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Rurouni Kenshin, Naruto, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Fullmetal Alchemist, Bleachand the various works of Rumiko Takahashi. The UK has fewer manga publishers than the U.S. In 2007, 70% of the comics sold in Germany were manga.
