Manga has a long and glorious history steeped in their unique homeland and culture. Japan has seen capitalism and democracy, as well as ideologies that no other Western states can compete with. Under its various rulers, art and culture flourished and developed and today Japan has a distinctive culture and art movements that are characteristic of Japanese. Manga is one of those art forms that has evolved and flourished in Japan but is admired all over the world.

Manga has its origins in Kibyoshi, popular Japanese picture books of the 18th and 19th centuries, and they were known as the first purely adult picture books for adults. Some people claim that Manga was originally inspired by 12th century scrolls, but Isao Takahata and others like him maintain that there is no direct connection between the scrolls and modern Manga. Others still believe Manga influenced American movies and cartoons.

Two Manga series were released in the middle of the 20th century as Japan was struggling with a political change, Machiko Hasegawa's Sazae-and Osamo Tezuka's Astro Boy (originally known as Mighty Atom), a fan favorite that lasted for decades and inspired many of the later shows.

These mangas were groundbreaking not only because of their stylistic perfection but also because they represented a changing world, free of tyranny and military rule. The characters were courageous, and a new century reflected the country.

Manga is now a global influence in many nations, and is being read. Its popularity is due to its distinctive style of drawing, as well as stories breaking language barriers. Mangas adapts several American movies and television shows.
