Like the anime thread but for manga. Read a good manga? Wanna share? Post your thoughts here! :D I only recently started reading manga, but even after just reading my second I'm really starting to see why people say the books are better than the animations. So much story and character development is cut from them to adhere to the tight restrictions of commercial television, you never get the true beauty of the manga and what the artist/author wanted to convey. My first manga was Kodomo no Jikan, and although it was borderline child porn, it was an amazing story that enveloped the reader in the lives of the characters, and had you wanting more till the very end. Just recently I read Prunus Girl, a story about the daily lives and eventual love life of a couple. But with a twist, the female, is actually male (trap). Although the story is nowhere near as deep as Kodomo no Jikan, it does a great job of creating humorous situations and making you laugh. The love story isn't half bad either. Was kinda cutesy. So after just those two I'm really starting to love romance manga's and I doubt I'll be stopping here.
