For this reading year, I was introduced to mangas. I did read them from time to time but I didn’t really get into them until this year. If you don’t know, mangas are Japanese comics. Mangas get a bad rap for not being sufficient enough for a story, educational enough or could be demeaning to genders. However, mangas could be more engaging and entertaining than a prose novel. And this year was no exception. So if you are new to mangas or looking for newer ones, here are some great series to get you started:

Manga Classics: Pride & Prejudice by Stacy King
Pages: 308 pages
Published: August 19, 2014
Publisher: Udon Entertainment
Genre: Graphic Novels, Mangas, Classics
If you are looking for an exact adaptation of the is beloved, then this is not the right book. But don’t let that deter you. This is another delightful edition in the Manga Classics series. It might be a tad dramatic but that doesn’t stop it from being a great story. The text was appropriate, especially if it’s targeting a younger audience. It felt more like teenagers were talking to one another which oddly enough made it more enjoyable . The art was fantastic as usual. I really loved how during the intense and important moments of the story, the weather reflected that such as raining during Darcy’s second proposal. So although this version does takes this classic in a new direction, don’t fret Austen lovers. It still brings all the charm and wit the original emits. Another successful adaptation!
