Why do you translate the

Why do you translate the company`s name to "manga"?

Chinese and Japanese are using the same hanzi/kanji for "comic", but in Chinese it is not pronounced "manga", it is pronounced "manhua".

Hmm good point, in this particular case manhua would be a better choice... I wonder where this whole manga/manhwa/manhua thing started... in each language (JP/Kor/CH) the words simply mean comics (from Japan mostly)... in Chinese when one wants to distinguish between Japanese comics and Chinese comics...they simple add a Japanese or Chinese in front of manga/manhua/comics/whatchamacallit. ;)
