Anime Fan Communities: Transcultural Flows and Frictions

How have animation fans in Japan, South Korea, the United States, and Canada formed communities and dealt with conflicts across cultural and geographic distance? This book traces animation fandom from its roots in early cinema audiences, through mid-century children's cartoon fan clubs, to today's digitally-networked transcultural fan cultures.

        Anime/Manga are not very popular but there's a lot of culture in "Manga" from Japan.Many people confuse anime as manga so.........
