...Now, France prides itself as the world's second-largest manga market after Japan. In fact, manga is the only genre of books whose sales are rising at a time when the book market in general remains sluggish.

Books bound on the right-hand side may perhaps be one of the greatest effects Japanese culture has had on people outside Japan.
