Once upon a time, one had to read Japanese in order to enjoy manga. Today manga has become a global phenomenon, attracting audiences worldwide. The style has become so popular, in fact, that in the US and UK publishers are appropriating the manga style in a variety of print material. Comic publishers such as Dark Horse and Viz are translating Japanese classics, such as "Fruits Basket", into English. And of course it wasn't long before Shakespeare received the manga treatment."@en ;
