Media went as far as to say that “true manga” was made only in Japan.
"To say that you can’t draw it because you don’t have the DNA is just silly.”
it's true that most people are hostile to foreign mangaka.
i myself find the idea a bit repulsive and odd although i KNOW that technically speaking, a "foreign manga" could equal a japanse one .
maybe it's beacause i got used with the manga=japanese concept...which could also be true because manga IS a japanese word ... so does this mean that comic books that resemble mangas in every way cannot be named "manga" just because the ppl who drew them were not japs?
please tell me what you think about this.
