Manga are comics created in Japan or by creators in the Japanese language, conforming to a style developed in Japan. They have a long and complex pre-history in earlier Japanese art. However, the manga industry has expanded worldwide, where distribution companies license and reprint manga into their native languages. An anime is a Japanese hand-drawn or computer animation.
Outside Japan, anime is used to refer specifically to animation from Japan or as a Japanese-disseminated animation style often characterized by colorful graphics, vibrant characters, and fantastical themes.
