This is the first manga I've read (with the exception of the one that my husband and brother-in-law wrote for a high school project), and I must say, I'm just confused. This book was done in the traditional manga, where it's read "backwards." It took quite a lot for me to get used to it. The pictures were really crowded and sometimes I had no idea what was going on. Plus, the main character was super whiny. I should probably give the manga genre another chance, but it's not going to happen for awhile.

Bekka Thats very funny, Beth! I did Fruits Basket, and, once I got used to the direction being wrong, I quite enjoyed the story. Kind of silly, but some great artwork in it.

Beth I think a lot of manga is very silly! :)
