Japan’s Cartoon Culture

Why is it that “a nation with one of the world’s highest literacy rates would become so obsessed with cartoons” Men and women of all ages can be seen on the subway, in coffee shops, or at racks in convenience stores, poring over thick, bound comic books. And Japanese TV is filled with anime shows. Can’t get enough of ’em. And it’s not just the shows and books. Animation pervades the entire society.”
