DID YOU KNOW?

The origins of Japanese comics or manga goes all the way back to the 11th century? Toba Sojo was an 11th-century priest and painter known for his whimsical sense of humor. He made chobu giga or animal scroll paintings depicting Buddhist priesthood. He would draw priests as mischievous animals doing silly activities. The way that people read manga from right to left stems from the way you unrolled scrolls in the same way. From then on, various forms of art and sketch appeared that influenced manga. Western culture made its way into the country and mixed with Japanese ideology. Manga artists began creating works drawing inspiration from both. There was not anything that art did not cover or emphasized on. Some of today's best manga has a little bit of everything in them. These have also spawned anime adaptations and proved to be as popular as the source material.

A lesser-known but no less important part of Japanese manga culture is Doujinshi. These are self-published works by amateur artists. There has been controversy about the nature of these doujinshis and their inspiration. Doujinshi artists would get inspiration from existing manga works. They would then incorporate in their own creations. They would sell these doujinshis at Comiket (or known as Comic Market) events. They would sell in small quantities to avoid attention and possible litigation.
