Academic Content of Manga
You would think that most people who decided to study manga at university would be of the same belief. However, that does not seem to be the case. Most of the people who took Manga and Japanese Contemporary Culture took it as a bludge subject.
One person in my class told me openly that he thought the class was a joke, both because of the students who did not take the class seriously, but also because he does not believe that manga and anime have any academic content whatsoever.
So, what do you think? Do you believe that manga and anime have any academic content, or do you think that they are merely forms of entertainment?Ambercrystal.
