Japanese culture and animation have evolved to become a phenomenon that is truly unstoppable. MANGA's popularity grew out of this fan base for those who loved Japanese animation. Here is a sample of User Generated MANGA created with the TOKYOPOP MANGA Creator.
This type of explosive growth in the book industry over a short period is highly unique. MANGA has taken over America and is here to stay. Graphic Novel sales in book stores and mass market chains are now consistently out pacing the sales of traditional novels. MANGA's roots started with Speed Racer back in the 1960's and took hold with Pokémon and the Power Rangers in the 1990's.
In response to these rabid fans, TOKYOPOP and Planetwide Media have joined forces to deliver a new interactive MANGA experience. The TOKYOPOP MANGA Creator interactive self-publishing software enables MANGA and anime fans to freely use their creative imagination and their own stories together with officially licensed TOKYOPOP digital content to create personalized MANGA, anime and comic books.
Fans will now be able to post their personalized TOKYOPOP MANGA to a blog or social network, HyperComics.com, email to friends or print out in MANGA format. TOKYOPOP MANGA Creator software uses the power of Planetwide's Drag 'n Drop technology to allow users to create and publish their own MANGA. Aspiring artists simply create a storyline, drag and drop TOKYOPOP art and MANGA-Ka tools and MANGA facial expressions into over 100 templates, and add their own words.
TOKYOPOP and Planetwide Media announce the TOKYOPOP MANGA Creator "I LUV HALLOWEEN" Contest.
