But it has a course that studies manga

Now you can watch anime and be academically recognised...twice! From next year onwards, JPN 223 will be offered with JPN 123 as a prerequisite. Why not enrol in JPN 123 today? Remember, if you like what you do, then you'll never have to work..."
JPN123 Japan's Contemporary Culture through Manga
Department of Asian Languages
It is widely acknowledged that manga holds a significant place in contemporary Japanese culture. This unit, offered in the second half-year, provides a unique insight into modern societies through manga. A number of representative works comprising comics/animations will be examined from various perspectives, with regard to their socio-cultural, mental, philosophical and literary significance. This unit will include an examination of manga creators and their particular artistic effects on symbolism.
This is a general education unit conducted in English and no prior knowledge of Japanese language is required.
JPN123 will be a prerequisite for a new unit, JPN223: Manga and Representation of Identity, which will provide a close examination of manga/anime's rich and profound representations of issues of identity, paying particular attention to the fashioning of self and the individual's quest for subjective agency. Various important works by, for example, Osamu Tezuka, Riyoko Ikeda, Moto Hagio, Keiko Takemiya, Hayao Miyazaki, Katsuhiro Otomo, Mamoru Oshii, Naoko Takeuchi, Rumiko Takahashi and Clamp, will be examined.
