What is manga?

Manga is the commonly used term for "Japanese Graphic Novel." You could say that manga is like a combination of a novel and a comic book. Some manga is formatted like American comic books, but most of the more recently printed books are read "backwards." When the book is formatted "backwards" it is simply the Japanese way of writing; still, you read the words right to left, but you look at the pictures left to right. The original formatting of manga often throws off beginning fans. Manga is made about anything you can imagine, in Japan. There are fashion, drama, girls, guys, fighting, dancing, action, horror, and many more categories for manga, made for everyone from pre-school students to the elderly or business people.

    Ok. so you answered your question. That's good.
    Everything seems ok except fo a few punctation errors.(misplaced commas) Yea, i think people would find it informative.
    (commas not needed)- "You could say that manga is like a combination of a novel, and a comic book." (no comma)
    "Manga is made about anything you can imagine, in Japan"
    (no comma or you could disclude the "in japan part" either way is fine.
