Hey! KandiRaver here giving my nerd thoughts on the world of anime!

It's been a while since my last post, 'Character of the Week'.
This week I'm going to be talking about manga, and what it is.

Manga-  a Japanese comic book or graphic novel
So, basically manga is like an American comic book, but so much more cooler.

This first interesting point to manga is how it's read.
Instead of reading the book front to back, you actually start from the back and read to the front. It seems confusing to alot of people, but once you've read it a few times it's actually very easy.
The second interesting point to manga is the art.
The art is very detailed and always in black and white.
As seen in the picture above, you also read the manga from left to right.

Manga is important because all anime's are based off of the manga, though the show will usually be a little diffferent than the manga.
There's also another thing about service! (Sounds awkward, but I love it!)
Basically it's where the author of the manga draws pictures that fangirls will go crazy over, like the one below.


Okay, but that's all for now! See ya next week!
