Japan is not all manga, because it’s obviously not. But I do like it. A lot.
Manga is great.
i used to like many kinds when i was younger, now days, i am more selective. and it takes style and artistic freshness to capture my attention. but you can always find an enjoyable title that fits your mood.
Manga is, in fact, a great way for me ( and for anyone) to improve their Japanese language skills. I do try children books sometimes but the lack of pictures can easily cut my concentration very short.
Manga can often be, grammatically and vocabulary wise, harder than children books, but they keep the interest alive and so very visual.
Now I am going to save poor you from a long manga talk and just show you some of the manga(and not manga) I’ve collected here in Japan. It was very cheap or free.
