漫改 [màn gǎi] and 國漫 [guó màn]

漫改 [màn gǎi] n. Short for 漫畫改編 [màn huà gǎi biān] “adapted from comics / manga.”

國漫 [guó màn] n. 國産漫畫 [guó chǎn màn huà] “domestic comics.”

These two words showed up a lot these days because of the domestic comics-adapted animated movie “Ne Zha” broke the box office record by pulling in over 700 million RMB within the first week of release.
