I've only recently started to read manga, and I must say I'm really enjoying it! I find it very exciting as an art form and it offers lots of opportunities for storytelling that other things (novels, films) do not.
(Also, I'm looking for recommendations. I've only read a few, but I've really liked things like Death Note and FMA. If anyone has ideas, please reply or message me!)
I'm not sure exactly why I don't like them, there's just something about the focus on the pictures and not the words.
Also, the fact that all the girls (in the mangas I've read) are, like, size zeros bothers me.
Manga is like a book but with pictures, which makes it funner for people that cant stand a page with a bunch of words. XD
But I think it's great for having a laugh when you're bored, artwork is awesome! I'd like to see your bro try to draw like that! =.= Manga is definite do!
Do do do! Manga can be amazing art. The stories can have a point, and can touch on some crazy stuff, just depending on the witer and/or artist. It's no different that another book, or a cmoic, and to each his own, or her own so you have the freedom to read what you want to.
I know, that really bothers me too. Except for some of the characters in Fullmetal Alchemist, the girls in manga really annoy me.
However, there are a few redeeming factors... I'm starting to get into cosplay, and it's really common for girls to dress as male characters (exciting!). Also (if I may mention how much I love FMA again) there are some excellent female voice actors who play male characters. I know these have more to do with manga culture than with manga itself, but eh. It helps sometimes.
