|Along with the speedy expansion of Japanese anime/manga industry, anime/manga fan culture has spread globally. Many sub-groups of anime/manga fandom have been developed prosperously in countries like Taiwan and the States. Hebdige (1979) mentioned subculture is highly dynamic and capricious in essence. When a subculture is transmitted to other countries, it is often assimilated or transformed in local senses of the destinies. It is therefore questioned whether any dialogue, negotiation, resistance and adjustment between anime/manga fan culture and local cultures have happened when anime/manga fan culture is transplanted to Taiwan or the United States. What characteristics and implications can be found from the anime/manga communities in Taiwan and the United States? To search answers for these two questions, this study analyzes and compares the answers for these two questions, this study analyzes and compares the socio-cultural phenomena of te doujinshi conventions/anime conventions in Taiwan and in the United States from my personal experiences of participation and observation. Based on the findings and interpretations, this study will provide insightful suggestions for art education.
