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.

Here are some samples of manga videos:

UNWomen “Finding Her” series is on display in exhibition at the Design Museum Holon in Israel (www.dmh.org.il)

“State of Extremes”
will reflect on how design, and the world, have changed in the past decade, by exploring our current condition of extremes — of extreme weather, extreme political polarization, extreme wealth disparity, etc. — in order to examine design’s role in mediating, articulating, moderating and, possibly, exacerbating these phenomena.

Japanese illustration

Japanese creation has been receiving much attention in many fields – Manga, animated film, product design, industrial design, architecture, etc. However, we don’t see so much Japanese illustration and surface design used outside Japan. There are so many talented Japanese illustrators and surface designers but they have been recognized only in the Japanese market. We wanted to change this situation, and decided to start a new project. We are aiming at spreading Japanese illustration and surface design around the world!
