Manga are comics or graphic novels created in Japan or by creators in the Japanese language, conforming to a style developed in Japan in the late 19th century. They have a complex pre-history in earlier Japanese art; the term manga in Japan is a word used to refer to cartooning. "Manga" as a term used outside Japan refers to comics published in Japan. In Japan, people of all ages read manga; the medium includes works in a broad range of genres: action, adventure and commerce, detective, historical, mystery, science fiction and fantasy, erotica and games, suspense, among others. Many manga are translated into other languages. Since the 1950s, manga has become a major part of the Japanese publishing industry. By 1995, the manga market in Japan was valued at ¥586.4 billion, with annual sales of 1.9 billion manga books and manga magazines in Japan. Manga have gained a significant worldwide audience. In 2008, in the U. S. and Canada, the manga market was valued at $175 million. Manga represent 38% of the French comics market, equivalent to ten times that of the United States.
In France, the manga market was valued at about €460 million in 2005. In Europe and the Middle East, the market was valued at $250 million in 2012. Manga stories are printed in black-and-white, although some full-color manga exist. In Japan, manga are serialized in large manga magazines containing many stories, each presented in a single episode to be continued in the next issue. Collected chapters are republished in tankōbon volumes but not paperback books. A manga artist works with a few assistants in a small studio and is associated with a creative editor from a commercial publishing company. If a manga series is popular enough, it may be animated during its run. Sometimes manga are drawn centering on existing live-action or animated films. Manga-influenced comics, among original works, exist in other parts of the world in Algeria, Hong Kong and South Korea; the word "manga" comes from the Japanese word 漫画, composed of the two kanji 漫 meaning "whimsical or impromptu" and 画 meaning "pictures".
The same term is the root of the Korean word for the Chinese word. The word first came into common usage in the late 18th century with the publication of such works as Santō Kyōden's picturebook Shiji no yukikai, in the early 19th century with such works as Aikawa Minwa's Manga hyakujo and the celebrated Hokusai Manga books containing assorted drawings from the sketchbooks of the famous ukiyo-e artist Hokusai. Rakuten Kitazawa first used the word "manga" in the modern sense. In Japanese, "manga" refers to all kinds of cartooning and animation. Among English speakers, "manga" has the stricter meaning of "Japanese comics", in parallel to the usage of "anime" in and outside Japan; the term "ani-manga" is used to describe comics produced from animation cels. The history of manga is said to originate from scrolls dating back to the 12th century, it is believed they represent the basis for the right-to-left reading style. During the Edo period, Toba Ehon embedded the concept of manga; the word itself first came into common usage in 1798, with the publication of works such as Santō Kyōden's picturebook Shiji no yukikai, in the early 19th century with such works as Aikawa Minwa's Manga hyakujo and the Hokusai Manga books.
Adam L. Kern has suggested that kibyoshi, picture books from the late 18th century, may have been the world's first comic books; these graphical narratives share with modern manga humorous and romantic themes. Some works were mass-produced as serials using woodblock printing. Writers on manga history have described two complementary processes shaping modern manga. One view represented by other writers such as Frederik L. Schodt, Kinko Ito, Adam L. Kern, stress continuity of Japanese cultural and aesthetic traditions, including pre-war and pre-Meiji culture and art; the other view, emphasizes events occurring during and after the Allied occupation of Japan, stresses U. S. cultural influences, including U. S. comics and images and themes from U. S. television and cartoons. Regardless of its source, an explosion of artistic creativity occurred in the post-war period, involving manga artists such as Osamu Tezuka and Machiko Hasegawa. Astro Boy became immensely popular in Japan and elsewhere, the anime adaptation of Sazae-san drawing more viewers than any other anime on Japanese television in 2011.
Tezuka and Hasegawa both made stylistic innovations. In Tezuka's "cinematographic" technique, the panels are like a motion picture that reveals details of action bordering on slow motion as well as rapid zooms from distance to close-up shots; this kind of visual dynamism was adopted by manga artists. Hasegawa's focus on daily life and on women's experience came to characterize shōjo manga. Between 1950 and 1969, an large readership for manga emerged in Japan with the solidification of its two main marketing genres, shōnen manga aimed at boys and shōjo manga aimed at girls. In 1969 a group of female manga artists made their shōjo manga debut ("year 24" comes from the Japanese name for the year 1949, the

When he was young, he was taken to a movie theatre and watched 300 movies for 4 years. This had influenced his current job. Realizing his love, he attended the Kunitachi College of Music in 1969 to major in music composition. Hisaishi collaborated with minimalist artists as a typesetter, furthering his experience in the musical world, he enjoyed his first success of the business in 1974 when he composed music for the anime series called Gyatoruzu.

In traditional Japanese architecture, a shōji is a door, window or room divider consisting of translucent paper over a frame of wood which holds together a lattice of wood or bamboo. While washi is the traditional paper, shōji may be made of paper made by modern manufacturing processes. Shōji doors are designed to slide open, thus conserve space that would be required by a swinging door, they are used in traditional houses as well as Western-style housing in the washitsu. In modern construction, the shōji does not form the exterior surface of the building. In his book on Japanese aesthetics and architecture, In Praise of Shadows, the Japanese writer Jun'ichirō Tanizaki comments on the role of shōji in the interaction of light and shadows; the word shōji was used to refer to both fusuma, formally known as karagami shōji, shōji, referred to as akari shōji.

Enka is a popular Japanese music genre considered to resemble traditional Japanese music stylistically. Modern enka, however, is a recent musical form, while adopting a more traditional musical style in its vocalism than ryūkōka music, popular during the prewar years. Modern enka, as developed in the postwar era, is a form of sentimental ballad music; some of the first modern enka singers were Hachiro Kasuga, Michiya Mihashi, Hideo Murata. The revival of enka in its modern form is said to date from 1969, when Keiko Fuji made her debut; the most famous male enka singer is Kiyoshi Hikawa. The term enka was first used to refer to political texts set to music which were sung and distributed by opposition activists belonging to the Freedom and People's Rights Movement during the Meiji period as a means of bypassing government curbs on speeches of political dissent – and in this sense the word is derived from "enzetsu no uta", meaning "speech song." Another theory holds that modern enka means "enjiru uta", meaning "performance song."The genre called enka is said to be an expedient classification for record labels as well as J-pop.
For example, Harumi Miyako, considered as an enka singer, said "I don't think that I sing'enka'" and "In fact, there was no such term as'enka' when I debuted." Modern enka's mainstream scale is called Yonanuki Tan-Onkai or "Minor Scale without Four and Seven," and is a modified version of Yonanuki Chō-Onkai or "Major Scale without Four and Seven," which came from an older Japanese scale, the "Ryo Scale". One of the earliest Japanese songs, said to have used it is Rentarō Taki's "Kōjō no Tsuki,", called shōka in the Meiji period; the seventh- scale degree is not used in "Kōjō no Tsuki", a song of B minor. The music, based on the pentatonic scale, has some resemblance to blues. Enka lyrics are written around the themes of love and loss, enduring hardships, persevering in the face of difficulties suicide or death. Although enka is a genre of kayōkyoku, it is considered to be more expressive and emotional, though there is no clear consensus on the matter. Archetypal enka singers employ a style of melisma—where a single syllable of text is sung while moving between several different notes in succession—known as kobushi.
Kobushi occurs when the pitch of the singer's voice fluctuates irregularly within one scale degree: This compares with vibrato, which vibrates in a regular cycle. The kobushi technique is not limited to enka, as can be heard in the Italian song "Santa Lucia." In the late 1930s and early'40s, the music of composer Masao Koga began to resemble Buddhist shomyo-chanting because his record label asked him to produce music. Although Koga became a composer whose work is considered seminal to the creation of the genre, present-day enka is different from Koga's primary music because the singing styles of many postwar singers were different from the kobushi of Koga's musical note. Modern enka singer Takeshi Kitayama himself admitted in 2006, "I was confused because musical note was different from that of an old singer."Enka suggests a traditional, idealized, or romanticized aspect of Japanese culture and attitudes. Enka singers, predominantly women perform in a kimono or in evening dress. Male enka performers tend to wear formal dress, or in some performances, traditional Japanese attire.
Nods to traditional Japanese music are common in enka. The melodies of enka are fundamentally Western harmonies, electronic instruments are used, such as synthesizers and electric lead guitar with plenty of distortion, but its musical instruments include traditional Japanese instruments such as the shakuhachi and the shamisen; the political songs called enka in the Meiji period are called Sōshi Enka to distinguish it from modern enka. Street singers were called enka-shi; the first enka song is said to be "Dynamite bushi". The songs during this time include Otojiro Kawakami's "Oppekepe Bushi."In the Taishō period, enka-shi began to incorporate the violin, thus their songs were called violin enka. An enka-shi of the period was Toshio Sakurai, who in turn taught Haruo Oka. In present-day Japan, Road Traffic Law regulates the appearance of street performers. However, Japanese performers such as Utaji Fukuoka have still sung enka from the Taishō period; when the 1995 earthquake struck, Soul Flower Mononoke Summit, a musical project of the rock band Soul Flower Union, played sōshi enka to help buoy the spirits of disaster victims.
In the early Shōwa period in the late 1920s, record companies produced ryūkōka in place of street performers.? Enka-shi began to use guitar and were dubbed nagashi. Haruo Oka debuted with the 1939 song "Kokkyō no Haru" on the Japanese record label King Records. However, the term enka became uncommon in the postwar years; as jazz became popular in early postwar Japan, Japanese singer Hibari Misora released her debut song "Kappa boogie-woogie" on Nippon Columbia in 1949 at the age of only 12. She went on to sing jazz songs throughout the 1950s and 1960s, she did many enka songs in the 60s and 70s. In 1948, Hachiro Kasuga won King Records' first talent contest, he joined the record label the next year where Haruo Oka was his senior. His debut single "Akai Lamp no Shū Ressha" was released in 1952; the Kabuki-style song "Otomi-san" was made for Oka, but was sung by Kasuga, in 1954, "Otomi-san" became a popular hit in Japan. Kasuga took part in the NHK Kōhaku Uta Gassen for the first time with "Otomi-san"
