CREATING CHARACTER CONNECTIONS FROM MANGA

Harumi Murakami, Ryota Kyogoku, Hiroshi Ueda

Abstract

We presented a method to create character connections from manga using the frequencies of characters and their co-occurrences by referring to frames. First, we input characters and frames with a data input tool. Second, we calculated the frequencies of characters and the relationships among characters and group-related characters. Third, we created character connections. Preliminary experiments using Dragon Ball vol. 32 suggest the usefulness of our approach.
