Monday Manga #1

30 Nov

I’ve been a fan of anime’ ever since I was a kid. Most anime’ are based on original manga (comics) by Japanese artists (mangaka). However, in the past couple of years, I’ve stopped viewing anime’ and have read manga exclusively because of the following reasons:

The storyline in the anime’ can deviate from the original manga plot especially if the story can’t catch up with the production. In the Philippines, if you don’t have cable subscription to the Animax or Hero channels, you can’t be updated with the latest anime’ episodes. Episodes are available online but I find that browsing through online manga with English translations is faster. So, in an effort to share this hobby with you, starting this week, I’m going to provide updates on my favorite manga reads, and provide links to good scanlations.
