    Re: How Come Americans Don't Read Manga?

    <- american, and i love to read, but i can't get into mangas for some reason and will always resort to anime versions...even though everyone tells me the mangas are much better and follow a better story line without fillers and unncessary dialogue.

    I thought about it for a few hours one day and here's what i came up with.
    Mangas don't show action as vividly as anime or books. Anime of course you can see it, and normal novels use as much description as they feel is necessary.

    I'm not a huge action fan either, but mangas can't depict a punch or a playful slap on the shoulder as well as others.

    I'm American, and I love anime and manga. However, I'm starting to like manga more than anime, for my own reasons.
