PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

manga (countable and uncountable, plural manga or mangas)

  1. (countable) A comic originating in Japan.
    • 2001, Gilles Poitras, “What makes anime unique”, in Anime Essentials: Every Thing a Fan Needs to Know, page 63:
      English speakers are quick to notice the at times incorrect use of English in anime and manga. Many English words are customarily used in standard Japanese speech, and sometimes they are pronounced and employed in a manner quite different from their native use.
    • 2007, Yukako Sunaoshi, “Who reads comics? Manga readership among first-generation Asian immigrants in New Zealand”, in Popular Culture, Globalization and Japan, page 94:
      Manga (Japanese comics) are everywhere. Even here in Auckland. One can find various titles in their original versions as well as in Chinese, Korean and English translations.
    • 2012, Jason Thompson, “Introduction”, in Manga: The Complete Guide, page 46:
      Manga-influenced comics by Western authors are frequently sold alongside manga, although in most bookstores the decision is primarily a matter of format and packaging (i.e., whether the book is printed in the compact manga size or the traditionally larger American comic book format).
  2. (uncountable) An artistic style heavily used in, and associated with, Japanese comics, and that has also been adopted by a comparatively low number of comics from other countries.
  3. (rare, countable, chiefly proscribed by fandom slang) A comic in manga style, regardless of the country of origin.
    Lately I've been reading a Brazilian manga.
