    Great news, GP, congrats. At least it's not Anime...can't stand those gigantic eyes, no noses, big heads, overdeveloped bosoms, school-girl dresses, cliche personalities and uber spikey hair. Although, Manga has been heading in this direction too the past decade. Well at least they don't have fuzzy tails and cat ears. Good luck, bro and I'll certainly keep my eyes open for whenever it drops.

    Usually anime = animation and manga = comics. But, it is my understanding that the term manga is sometimes used to describe animation but usually by older Japanese. The definition that my Japanese-English dictionary has for manga is "cartoons, comics, caricatures".

    I thought Manga was the company that imported a lot of the Japanese art and the term got coined for the style of art since they were the only company doing it. Maybe I am completely wrong tho - I am not into it in anything more than a token way.

    I have a question about the Kaiden stuff too. Will the maps for it be CC licensed in the same way as the rest of the CWBP ? You said it would be expensive to produce which would be hard to reconcile with the free distribution model of CC stuff.

    From Wikipedia: Manga are comics and print cartoons (sometimes also called komikku), in the Japanese language and conforming to the style developed in Japan in the late 20th century.

    Anime (taken from half of the Japanese pronunciation of "animation") is animation in Japan and considered to be "Japanese animation" in the rest of the world.

    And GP, that artist is the shiz.

    Post Some of Hokusai's work is called Manga

    Although technically not related, there are a series of sketches done by Hokusai the Ukiyo-e master whose career was during the first half of the 19th century, that were called Manga.

    They were somewhat "cartoony" in style. I think the original term for Manga meant "sketch".

    The modern term basically means "cartoon". The style of course, is big eyes, etc.
