What anime and manga are? All I know is that they're this weird way of drawing and they're Japanese and the people have weird hair colors.

Example: In the U.S, there are cartoons.

 In Japan, there is anime. They're basically synonymous.
'Manga' is the physical comic-book, and 'anime' is the show. The funky hair colors and stuff is just a part of the modern Japanese culture, a product of their creativity.

Also, it bears saying that true manga is read fight to left. If you read it from left to right, that means it had been 'flipped', and the artwork is an iferior quality.

nah, manga that's written left to right's probably just an eol. It's still manga.
