Back when I was in high school I used to keep the fact that I liked anime/manga a strict secret. Only Sarah and a handful of others knew that I liked it. I made no mention of it outside of the safety of my own house and when someone learned that I was a fan…they tended to be completely shocked. Now, not so much.
Manga was a big part of my life though. I read a lot (probably too much, I mean, I AM a bookworm) and it inspired a lot of my early illustrations and drawings.
My first mangas were Tokyo Mew Mew followed by Card Captor Sakura.
My all-time favorite mangas are:
Uzumaki (Spiral) (And everything else by Ito Junji)
Kobato (and basically everything else by CLAMP)
Do you read manga? Do you have any favorites or something you’re currently reading? I’d love to hear about it!
