Article from Expatica (an online magazine for English-speaking ex-pats in Germany):
"The cult Japanese 'manga' comics have conquered Germany, with fans spending hundreds of euros a month on comics and dressing up as their heroes at conventions. Yuriko Wahl looks at the craze."
Replace the names and places, and you'd have exactly the same kind of article that appears in the American press whenever a reporter 'discovers' The Manga.
