Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Japanese comic books and print cartoons. A high proportion of Anime are adapted from these, so many of the Japanese Visual Arts Tropes got their start here. Sometimes, an existing anime series gets a manga adaptation; see Anime First for examples. You generally read them right to left, unless the manga was flipped during its English printing, which rarely happens these days, or the Mangaka decided to write it left-to-right for some reason, which happens even more rarely.

Korean-made comic books (called Manhwa), however, are generally read from left to right. Some manga scanlation sites have started showcasing a few manhwa, leading to some confusion in reading order when readers assume them to be Japanese manga. Chinese comic books are known as Manhua, and read from right-to-left like manga; they also tend to be in color, like mainstream American comics.
