The history of manga films in Japan fits into the broader history of films. The films described by Tanaka, Shinbi Iida, and others—who were active film critics from before World War II—were probably the first. Nihon eiga hattatsushi (History of the Development of Japanese Films) also describes the history of manga films, but this work offers more detail.
