We are back from a well deserved week off, and we are kicking our return off with an all-new Gaming History You Should Know, where we highlight some of the best independently produced content focused on the history of nerdy culture. Today, we’re going to talk about a major component of Otaku culture, manga.

YouTuber Red Bard, who has an incredible channel focused on Japanese animation, produced this informative video about the rise and fall of a former staple of manga publishing in the US, TOKYOPOP. This kind of history fascinates me. I missed out on the original Manga boom in the US so it was great to have this video fill me in on what I missed out on. Take it away, Red Bard!
