Newswise: Why Are Manga Outselling Superhero Comics?

Why Are Manga Outselling Superhero Comics?

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Last year, the Japanese or Japanese-inspired comics and graphic novels reportedly outsold old-fashioned superhero comics for the first time ever in the United States, a trend expected to continue. Satoru Saito, an associate professor of Japanese literature at Rutgers University–New Brunswick, teaches courses on Japanese pop culture and anime which explore the foundations of these narrative forms and how they relate to the wider Japanese culture.

Can 3D-Printing Musical Instruments Produce Better Sound Than Traditional Instruments?

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

Music is an art, but it is also a science involving vibrating reeds and strings, sound waves and resonances. The study of acoustics can help scientists produce beautiful music even with musical instruments fashioned with high-tech methods, such as 3D printing. Researchers studied the sound quality of a 3D-printed ukulele and compared it to a standard wooden instrument, and will present the group’s results at the 178th ASA Meeting.

Finding Meaning in ‘Rick and Morty,’ One Burp at a Time

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

One of the first things viewers of “Rick and Morty” might notice about Rick is his penchant for punctuating his speech with burps. Brooke Kidner has analyzed the frequency and acoustics of belching while speaking, and by zeroing in on the specific pitches and sound qualities of a midspeech burp, aims to find what latent linguistic meaning might be found in the little-studied gastrointestinal grumbles. Kidner will present her findings at the 178th ASA Meeting.
