Manga Study Guide: Barefoot Gen/Pace
Pace is an important factor in Manga conventions. The pacing of the story is essentially how fast the story is progressing and how important the scene is depending on situation.
Slow pace: It makes the reader focus on the scene and gives us an impression of close up, that way emphasises the scene. It shows that the scene is an important aspect that is worth slowing down the pace and that it plays a vital role in both story progression and character building.
Fast pace: Fast pace is used for showing quick action. The fast change of scenes give the reader the impression of fast movement as quick change enables the reader to understand and move quickly from panel to panel and imply the feeling of action on the reader.
