Anime like Death Note has made it possible, simply by proving to be so popular.
Not to mention those thronging into Bangalore Comic Con last April, or the hordes expected to descend upon Mumbai Film & Comics Convention and Comic Con Delhi, both in December 2015.
The fact that so many events are now teeming with Indian fans of anime and manga is only the visual face of how the genre is gathering pace in the country. But it's been slow going.
Two factors have been credited with making such headway as exists.
The first being first day guest speaker at the Hyderabad gathering - Kevin Hamric, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing at Viz Media. He might be merely the human face for a company increasingly making manga available in India, but he's quite a active one.
Returning time and time again to the sub-continent determined to make manga appear approachable to Indian readers.
These are the fore-runners forging a route into the Indian entertainment industry on behalf of all other Japanese manga to follow.
Hamric himself highlighted the second major factor, in an interview with Hans India newspaper (We are Bringing More of Manga to India: Kevin Hamric, Sept 14th 2015).
“One of the reasons why there are more takers to manga is because, most of the time when these animes were screened on TV, it was dubbed in Hindi and even Telugu. This helped a lot.”
In short, more manga is now being introduced to the country - plus being printed there, as demand grows to justify it - because Hindi dubbed Death Note et al made the genre popular enough. Through the anime laying the groundwork, Hamric was able to build a market for manga too.
Thus does the Death Note fandom grow, and all others too, eventually.
