Manga to Promote
US-Japan Military Alliance


August 3, 2010

The US military is to use manga-style comics to teach Japanese children about the two countries’ security alliance.

Four comics featuring a Japanese girl and a visiting US boy will be posted online, each exploring how US and Japanese troops work together.

A US spokesman said they were intended as a light-hearted explanation of the history of the alliance.
