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 grouprelated characters. Third, we created character connections. Preliminary experiments using Dragon Ball vol. 32 suggest the usefulness of our approach.
