But with all that, there are some manga that set off alarm bells - especially in the Western world. At New York Comic Con 2022, the New York Public Library's Cener for Public School Education organized a group of scholars and librries to talk about the popularity and changes manga faces in a panel titled 'Defending Manga.'
