Manga are Japanese style comics. If you’re expecting spandex and super friends, you’ll be sadly disappointed though. Manga spans a much wider spectrum than mainstream Western comics, with everything from accountancy exams to grand romance making its way into manga. Correspondingly it has very wide readership in Japan, with Bleach getting estimated weekly sales of around 387,000 for the latest edition, compared with Naruto’s 741,000 or One Piece’s 2,075,000! Whoa! That’s a lot of manga fans.
