Title "The Role of trust in the creation of popular cultural products: The Case of Japanese Manga"
Contribution Type Single
Journal Management Review Asia University
Volume, Issue, Page pp.57
Details This research aims to explore the role of trust in Japanese content development, focusing on the dyadic relationship between the mangaku(comic strip author) and the editor, and to examine the evolution of trust between these two creative actors in the course of their relationship. It also analyses the creation process used by the major Japanese publishing companies. This analysis allows for an understanding of the foundational role of trust in creative development and the factors that facilitate the creation of popular cultural products.
