According to the Asahi Newspaper, Osaka may open the Osaka Sougou Manga Geijutsu Kouka Daigaku (Osaka Comprehensive Manga Arts Institute of Technology), which will become the first university to have the word "manga" in its name. Ueda Gakuen, the legally incorporated education system responsible for the new university, aims to raise students not only capable of manga expressionism, but also capable of utilizing the newest of digital technology as well as business and commercial management.
Although Kyoto Seika University
had officially announced the opening of a manga department/manga major back in 2006, MEXT
claims that this is the first legal submission that ever had the word "manga" in its name.
