Which industry is larger manga or anime
The dichotomy of these two markets are not easy to reconcile. From hindsight they may look the the same they are not. First both go on different time lines and story arcs, take for Dragon Ball both manga and anime took different story arcs with totally different endings. Look in One Piece the manga is really huge in Japan and not so much in America. It was reported that manga generated over 4 billion dollar last two years and anime industry over 10 billion. Despite the different numbers these industry are different and hard to relate theme their are so many different dynamics involved with them,however, they are still need each other in there respective industry.
