What is Manga? I asked myself that same question. I saw a flood of Japanese teenagers outside this museum dressed up as these crazy anime characters. They were outside the Kyoto International Manga Museum.
It's three floors of lined wall to wall with every possible collection of manga you could think of. Manga can basically be described as a Japanese stle of comics that originated in the mid-1900s. It's become a huge hit with the younger set in Japan and the grassy area in front of the museum is fenced in so teens can act as their favorite characters.
