Fans of vintage Japanese comics can now get a high degree in the art form.
Kyoto Seika University, a private college in western Japan, is launching the nation's first doctoral program in manga, according to Australia's The Age.
The institution reportedly began an online degree program in manga and anime last year, the newspaper says.
The on-campus program should prove to be popular. Kyoto Seika has already gotten requests from people overseas to do their cartoon research there.
