Why do so many people like manga?
Because it's interesting and another component of anime, which I find people like because it's better than Western animation (story and at times art-wise).

What's the purpose of it?
To entertain

Why do you like it?
A combination of the two previous answers

What effects does it have on todays society?
In Australia, slim to none.

What are you top three manga?
Can't pick Razz

I'm bored so I thought I may as well answer all your questions. Here goes...

Hey i was just wondering a few things about manga?
Okay then.

Why do so many people like manga?
Same reason so many people like anime, or any other popular form of entertainment.

What's the purpose of it?
To tell a story, to entertain, to make money.

Why do you like it?
It's enjoyable to read.

What effects does it have on todays society?
I don't really know why this matters.

What are you top three manga?
Zetman, Lady Georgie, and Black Butler.

Why do so many people like manga?

Why do people like TVs? Why do people like going to the cinema? Why do people like books? Manga is just a medium through which good stories are told. People like manga because they like stories, I suppose.

What's the purpose of it?

See above

Why do you like it?

See above the previous 'see above'

What effects does it have on todays society?

It decreases life expectancy by increasing peoples chances of contracting cancer, bird flu, leprosy, syphillis, AIDS, down syndrome, alzheimers, arthritis and the common cold. Readers beware.

What are you top three manga?

It changes all the time depending what mood I'm in. At the moment, probably Orange Marmalade, Anatolia Story, YKK.

Why do so many people like manga?
Because people like comics and it's a big industry in Japan. People who get into anime generally tend to start checking out manga too - It's a natural and logical progression.


What's the purpose of it?
Stupid question. To entertain. To take the reader out of their lives for half and hour or so...


Why do you like it?
Because I love comics/graphic novels in general and I'm also fond of Japanese culture and anime. There are certain stories that can only be told via manga, IMO. I enjoy the art style as well.


What effects does it have on today's society?
See Drae's answer. He forgot to mention it'll make your hair fall out though, blindness and you'll get fur on your palms.


What are you top three manga?
Really tough question but I'll say Inoue's Vagabond and Real, followed by Gantz, which I've only started recently. Urasawa's stuff is really good. Akira and GITS should really be in there though. I love Sadamoto's NGE manga also; keen on volume 13 dropping later in the year.

Righty-o.

Why do so many people like manga?
Why do people like anything? Because they can be entertained, have their minds expanded, have their beliefs challenged.

What's the purpose of it?
See above.

Why do you like it?
There's a greater variety of storytelling styles than mainstream Western comics. They are also the source of some franchises in other media, and seeking the original is usually worthwhile.

What effects does it have on todays society?
Define society. Here in Australia? Western society in general? Japanese society?

What are you top three manga?
At the moment, Fullmetal Alchemist, A Certain Scientific Railgun and A Bride's Story, I think.

This is the same as your other 2 threads. I'v already answered in 1, so I won't bother answering the same questions here.
