The British Museum will be putting on the largest exhibition of manga ever to take place outside of Japan.

Manga is a narrative art-form that has become a global phenomenon, telling stories in real and imagined worlds through comics, animated movies, computer games, and now the new phenomena of 'cosplay' where manga fans dress up as their favourite anime characters.

This ground-breaking exhibition will explore manga's global appeal and how it achieved its cultural crossover, showcasing some original Japanese manga alongside some of the artwork it influenced in the west.

"Oh Jesus Christ, are you serious?… continued”
