What do women want to read? While comics in North America has been mostly a "boy" thing, in Japan, manga and anime for women have been a major force in the comics market for many years. From shojo manga to boys love manga to reverse harem "otome" video games and anime filled with delectable guys, these media have been catering to the tastes of female fans in Japan. These stories are reaching readers and inspiring comics creators worldwide more than ever. See what manga publishing pros Leyla Aker (senior vice president, publishing, VIZ Media), JuYoun Lee (editor-in-chief, Yen Press), Lillian Diaz-Pryzbyl (head of comics, Sparkler Monthly), and manga creator Jamie Lynn Lano (The Princess of Tennis, Denkiki) have to say about "female gaze" in manga, why it sells, and why it matters. They'll also share their picks for your next must-read manga that'll make you swoon. Moderated by Deb Aoki (Publishers Weekly, Manga Comics Manga)
