I love reading manga! It is a different reading experience because of the art work and I find that manga storylines can be totally insane at times. Manga is a fun and fast way to get more books read in a year or to simple take a break from novels. I love reading manga when I am in a reading slump because they are fast but interesting.
I am going to try too post about what manga to read based on books that you like! I want to help more people read manga but it can scary to pick up manga if you don’t know where to start so hopefully this post will help you!
If you like Contemporary books with a magic/sci fi twist then the manga series Orange by Takano Ichigo is for you!
Orange doesn’t deal with Aliens BUT it is a manga that have a sci fi aspect to it. Both of these series have loveable characters and a great story plot.
Retelling are one of my favorite types of books! There are many retellings out on the market today to here are a few of my favorite manga retelling: Snow White with the Red Hair by Sorata Akizuki and Pandora Hearts by Jun Mochizuki.
Snow White with the Red Hair is obviously a retelling Snow White while Pandora Hearts is a retelling of Alice and Wonderland.
If you love the series The Lunar Chronicles then you will love Sailor Moon by Naoko Takeuchi.
The author of The Lunar Chronicles also loves the manga/anime Sailor Moon! I love both of these series so much. The girl power in them is what I live for! I need more good books with strong female friends.
If you are looking for a story about a princess fighting for her kingdom then look no farther than Yona of the Dawn by Mizuho Kusanagi.
These books are different in many ways BUT they are both about a princess becoming stronger and trying to get her kingdom back.
If you want drama like from the book We Were Lairs by E. Lockhart then you want to read Blue Spring Ride by Io Sakisaka because they both have lots of drama.
We all love a cute romance such as Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. A manga that will give you all of cute feels is My Love Story by Kazune Kawahara and illustrated by Aruko.
I hope that this guide have helped you find a starting place for reading manga. I will make another one if you guys want because I love recommending manga. Thank you for reading and I hope you are having a lovely day.
