Manga are comic strips that originated in Japan during the 19th century. The stories have a variety of genres, usually telling stories of young protagonists going on adventures (Shonen) or much more mature content dealing with topics that adults relate to (Seinen). Anime is an animated adaptation of the Manga stories, usually animated by Japanese animation studios.
