In the last month of 2015, I really started getting into anime. I began watching a series called ‘Blue Exorcist’ and just fell. In. Love.
I literally binge-watched the series, guys. Whenever I had the TV on, it was highly unlikely it wasn’t this anime. And so when I came across the manga section in Waterstones after Christmas, I thought I’d check to see if they had the manga of the series.
And they did.
I read it the day after, and loved it. I’d never read manga before, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I did know you read it back to front, but I didn’t realise until after a couple of nonsensical pages that you also read it from right-to-left too!
And though I was a little skeptical at first, it was really awesome! I considered doing a review on it, but I had no clue how to review it, and I still don’t. It’s not the same as reviewing a normal book, you know?
I also read the first Tokyo Ghoul manga on New Year’s Day – and dare I say, it might have been even better than Blue Exorcist. I’m planning on watching the anime after I’ve read the manga, which I’m hoping to get the next of soon!
So as a conclusion, my first taste of manga was great. I loved pretty much everything about it – sure, did I get a bit confused in places? Of course! But it doesn’t take away from the fact that they’re super good!
Have any of you guys read any manga? If so, what’s your favourite so far?
