Manga has a long history, starting in the 12th-13th centuries with the scroll “Choju-jinbutsu-giga”. The concept of manga began to take shape in the Edo period, and it gained popularity in the late 18th century. In the early 19th century, well-known manga books were published, and in 1876, Rakuten Kitazawa became the first professional manga artist. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Japanese artists used advancements in printing techniques to publish comics criticizing politics, leading to government censorship.

After the American occupation of Japan, the style of American comics ( comics ) had a clear influence on the style of manga. For example, Tezuka Osamu (1928 – 1989), a Japanese manga artist, created works such as “Astro Boy” (1952 – 1968) that combined Western themes with traditional manga elements.

Today manga has developed into a worldwide craze with many publications in many genres , possessing a huge readership in almost every country. Manga has also been adapted into anime, movies and video games, attracting the attention of many fans.
