Our library is home to several manga series. People seem to be a little daunted when they see these rows of books that can take up an entire shelf, so I thought I would highlight a few of my favorite ones. Unlike many of our American comic books, these comics from Japan are full-fledged, ongoing stories and must be read in order. Although most are aimed at a younger audience, manga series are produced for virtually all ages and interests. There is a little bit of a learning curve to read these books, but if you’ve never read any before, don’t fret! Each volume will have a little page of instruction and it doesn’t take too long to get used to it.
Is there another series you want to know about? Do you have questions about the ones I just discussed? Just want to talk about manga? Email me anytime!
