Kelly (kelstretch) Welcome everyone!

Wednesday, I just read up a little on Fruits Basket, I must read that!

It starts off light and comedic, but gets deeper and more endearing as the series continues.

Vicky (librovert) Hi! I'm Vicky.

I read a ton of manga when I was in high school, got busy through college and just never got back on track again. I'm hoping some challenges will help me get motivated to read some more!

Some of my favorites are...

Mangas: Mars, Vol. 1, Wild Act, Volume 1

Comics: Lady Mechanika, Mind the Gap #1 and honestly almost anything Image puts out, though I'm sadly quite behind in my reading due to the fact that I'm broke. :P

Graphic Novels: Maus, Laika. I'm also really into Graphic Novel Tie-Ins for TV Shows and Games that I like; Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Promise Part 1, Dragon Age: The Silent Grove, etc.

That's what libraries are for! I love libraries, except that my library has this horrible problem of manga and DVD's being stolen. Almost every time I go to look for a series various volumes are missing. But, that's where my manga Kindle app comes in. I can download and read whatever fantranslated manga is in the database. So, i can use it to make up for stolen manga at the library. However, I still prefer having physical copies.

Thanks! I've been reading a lot more now that classes are over and I have a bunch of free time, haha, so I've got a lot of new favorites :D


Athena Shardbearer | 11 comments Hello I'm Athena.

I have too many favorites. But I am really liking Vinland Saga, also my favorite webcomic is Romantically Apocalyptic.

Hi Simeon! Hi Athena!

Welcome to the group. :)


message 47: by Kevin (new)

Kevin Wright (kevin_wright) | 1 comments Hi, I'm Kevin. My favorite comics are too numerous to list. I'm a bit more cautious about which manga series I read and I'm looking to broaden my horizons. I need a new manga series now that Negima is over. I see this group is reading or just finished reading Vinland Saga. I just finished Planetes and loved it. I’m curious to see how Makoto Yukimura went from space travel to Vikings and dragons. I tend to gravitate toward harem comedies like Love Hina, Mahoromatic, He Is My Master, and period dramas, especially samurai stuff like Lone Wolf and Cub, Samurai Executioner, and Path of the Assassin. I’m also slowly working my way through Monster. I’m not a huge fan of mystery or horror generally, but I’m a fan of good stories in any genre. I’m looking for good recommendations and discussions.

Hi Kevin, welcome to the group!

Haven't read Planetes yet but I love Vinland Saga so far. Monsters seem to be the latest trend in harem comedies, and both Rosario Vampire and Monster Musume are quite good. Rosario actually gets quite serious and plot driven in the second series, and Monster Musume is more risqué/ecchi than typical of the genre. A Bride's Story is a phenomenal period piece about tribal life in 19th century Asia, although it's slice of life / romance, not action based. If you end up liking Monster the same creator has some other great stuff, including Pluto.

Thank you! I love the Vinland Saga. I read it about a month ago and planning on reading Vol. 2 soon.


message 50: by Samantha (new)

Samantha Hello all. My name is Samantha. I got into reading comics/graphic novels and manga starting with the Buffy series. But now I have learned to love a great many different ones. I utilize my library for all my reading materials and sometimes have to be on a very long waiting list, for The Walking Dead Compendium 1 I had to wait almost 6 months. I am currently enjoying Y The Last Man, Fables, and Locke and Key in-between my Buffy fixes.
