What is manga you ask? I wondered the same thing. Basically is a comic book (or graphic novel) written from right to left. So it's read backwords. It is a very weird style of writing. I read one for a challenge called Aqua. It is all about a female gondolier (yes really) living on planet Aqua for the summer. The president is a cat (yes, I did say cat). Needeless to say manga is not for me. I read one, glad to have had the experience but not again. Any book that gives you directions on HOW to read it is not for me.
