TitleManga Segmentation and Vecteorization
People Chih-Yuan Yao   Yu-Chi Lai  

Comics and Manga are popular medium for conveying ideas and entertainment.Manga, Japanese comics, have gained worldwide audience from not only Asia but also North America and Europe. With advance in mobile technologies, Manga digitization is important for distribution on these devices. However, scanned conversion still dominates digitization and requires manual intervention to clear up noise, artifacts, and distortions. The process is strenuous and time-consuming, and results are incapable to transform to different resolutions after scanned. Furthermore, the size of a page cannot be fitted into the mobile devices and thus, we would like to segment them for better readability
