Manga Recommendations for Your Reading List

—-This post was updated and refreshed in October 2018. Happy reading!—-

I started reading manga WAY later than when I started reading Western comics. When I first published this post in 2016, I’d only read a handful of titles. Now in October 2018, I have so many favorites.

So I’m converting this post into an index of manga titles recommended across my blog. It’s organized by blog post, with a link to the post where you can find more info about the titles listed. Or just look them up on your book research site of choice.

    YES to A Silent Voice and Azumanga Daioh. I as a fan of A Silent Voice when it was originally a one-shot, and was delighted to find it became a full on series.
    Don’t know if you’ve done a list on this yet, but if you haven’t, I’d love to see a list of the best animal-based comics.

      There are definitely animal-based comics sprinkled throughout my lists, it might be fun to pull them together and add a few new ones. Thanks for the inspiration!
