Oh, I'm definitely prejudiced against manga/anime, but not because it is Japanese... U.S. comic books produce some of the same reactions, but mixed with a little nostalgia for the 1960s when I read them a lot. Violence of course is also a matter of purpose. Maus I/II is violent enough: after all, it's about the Holocaust, but I think the violence is entirely justified. -- John Cowan Please leave your values | Check your assumptions.
