Summary

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a disability that hinders a person's ability to socialize effectively with others. From my own experience growing up with autism, I've only been able to sympathize with characters in books, TV, and films, such as manga and anime, due to the scenery, plot, and characterization. Autistic minds gravitate toward image-rich media such as manga and anime, and they tend to replay these images in memory. Sometimes emotions, setting, and storyline are key aspects of the drawings, which help convey the main life lesson. This helps the reader find the manga imagery relatable, inspiring the reader to continue to read the next chapter.
