Some time ago I learned about the uses of で particle and one of them is scope for example:


but now with the uses of 中 says that when it's used after a place indicates the scope of an action in that place, so I found on internet this example:


My question is in second sentence, What is the difference of put 中 in relation to the scope? Why not just put で? or if i put 中 in the first what does that involve?

日本で "in Japan" vs 世界中で "throughout the world". Does that help?

I think the difference here would be the emphasis that is put on the idea of throughout. Pick a different language, say German or Navajo. These two are languages spoken in the world, but not throughout the world.

Yet, in order to be famous, then such a broad scope doesn't have to be specified. In fact, 日本で localizes where manga are well-known; elsewhere in the world, manga may not be so well known.
