What is manga video?

August 18, 2022

A manga video is a new form of manga marketings developed in Japan.  It is a new way of using mangas for marketing with much lower cost compared to animated films. 

In Japan, it started about five years ago, and it is getting more and more popular these days, and there are many companies using manga videos for their marketing.

The difference between manga videos and animated films is the way it is constructed. In a manga video, they use still manga images, and a conversation, sound effects,  background music are added to the images.
