Anime and Manga is another thing Japan is known for, and no its not a comic book and a cartoon.  Manga is the book while Anime is the show.  Some very popular ones are Sailor moon, Dragon ball Z and Avatar the last air bender. My personal favorites are Fruits Basket, Soul eater, and black butler. Anime and manga is most poplar in Japan. For fun if you really love the anime or manga you can cosplay. Cosplay is when you dress up as a character. For exsample I could say Halloween is cosplay day.
