66 Types of Manga Mania

From Bizarre Anime to Unique Halloween Costume Ideas

— October 31, 2008 — Pop Culture
Manga mania has officially become a worldwide phenomenon, and it will inevitably be the source of unique Halloween costume ideas this year.

From anime contact lenses to manga makeup and 2-D-inspired costume play, it’s easy to get Halloween costume ideas from anime characters.

Manga’s place in pop culture, however, lasts long after October 31. Cartooning has become a year-round phenomenon, going well beyond Halloween costume ideas into the realms of fine art, music, photography, fashion, and even public transportation.

Check out the articles in this cluster for Halloween costume ideas, cartoon inspiration and animated innovation.
