Ok, so here's a question...  For a while now I've thought about getting into manga as a way to learn to read Japanese.  I can handle most spoken Japanese in anime - "anime Japanese" is easy(er) anyway - and I can do a decent enough job sight-reading kana.  With a little practice I could probably read it pretty well.  (I'm very good at reading English material btw.. I can read a whole novel between bedtime and breakfast and have absolutely no trouble keeping up with subtitles in anime.)   My only real problem reading Japanese seems to be the kanji.  I've tried reading regular Japanese text, like in a novel or newspaper.  It is not pretty.  Every kanji character becomes a speedbump or pothole and getting through a page of that is exhausting. 

OTOH, a lot of Japanese-language manga is aimed at younger, school-aged people and often either avoids kanji altogether or uses "hint mode".  (aka furigana.)  I'm thinking that might be a fun way to practice reading Japanese for someone at my level.  I did once impulse-buy a copy of Toradora that had furigana but the text was a little too small for my eyes so that experiment turned into something of an exercise in frustration.  It almost worked though.  I just need to find an engaging story that has easier-to-read text.  And/or uses only kana, though I think I'd actually prefer it if it had kanji+furigana, since that way I can get used to seeing/reading manga the kanji as well.  As long as the rubi text isn't too small I should be ok.  :)

Anyway, if any of you manga-readers are reading the Japanese versions and knows of such please feel free to make suggestions.  Unfortunately that's not the kind of information that is typically available in online stores, and the nearest good brick-and-mortar store with anything like a decent selection of Japanese-language manga & graphic novels is far enough away that I don't go there much.  ISBN #s would be super appreciated if you have them so people/I can order it online and still make sure to get the right version.

Currently a big fan of Chainsaw man and Jujutsu kaisen right now. I don’t get your critique of them. Also currently reading and loving: Radiant, Kengan Omega, Out, Kemono Jihen, Gleipnir, Jigokuraku, Ragna Crimson, Aposimz, Made in Abyss, Mononogatari, One punch man, Tsugumomo and alot more but those are the best right now

Started re-reading Eyeshield 21 volume 1 today.

Probably will read this volume only. I like the beginning of the story.

I usually read and re-read a lot some of my manga.

Good day. Why do you like just the beginning? I liked it entirely. I also like to re-read my beloved. Probably, many do this in order to immerse themselves in their favorite environment with the heroes of the story. I usually read on Novel-Sempai, and what is your source? Will you provide a link? Maybe your directory contains something that I have not read yet. Share?

I've started a few new ones recently:

I picked up the Seven Deadly Sins sequel, Four Knights of the Apocalypse, and it seems really good so far. 

I'm trying a couple of the new JUMP series too - Blue Box and Neru: Way of the Martial Artist. There's some other really interesting new titles coming out too!

Right now I am reading My Hero Acdemia. It’s very popular so you may have heard of it. It is about a world in which people are born with superpowers known as “quirks”. The main character, Izuku Midoriya was born without a quirk so he was destined to be an outcast for the rest of his life. However, he looked up to the number one hero and wanted to be just like him. He wanted to be a hero that everyone liked. But how could he do that if he had no quirk?

It’s really good. I’d recommend you read it if you haven’t already.

Cathleen Bate/Star and Stripe is now my second favorite MHA character. 

On Chainsaw Man ch. 92. 

The Culling Game arc in JJK has been interesting. Higuruma has surprisingly become a favorite, so I hope he's not used to give Itadori more trauma to seek proper justice with. 

Man I've been hearing all kinds about Star on Youtube and can't wait to see how they animate that.

Is Jjk a good manga? I've never read manga before but I've been thinking about jjk and Tokyo Ghoul. I tried getting into manga in the past reading it backwards and slant on page sucked the fun out of it. That was back when my attention span didn't hold up xD

@Kit I love Cathleen/Star! There's a lot of debate about her that left fans pretty divided but, if you like and enjoy something all it takes is a bit of filtering out. Should be interesting, nonetheless!

Manga definitely takes some practice to get used to. Some artists like adding their personality to the panels and do something whacky with the frames entirely. Personally like the Jujutsu Kaisen manga but if you're interested in the anime, you should give it a go. Only way to know for sure if you'd like to invest in it yourself.

Would love to take a moment and thank Gege for Higuruma. 🙏 It's real Game of Thrones with all the manga I've been reading lately. Crossing my fingers for Hiromi but it's the Culling games, so it's going to be like drawing straws. 😭

Currently reading "Blue Giant". It's about a boy who discovers Jazz and falls in love with playing the Saxophone. His big dream is to be a great Jazz Musician. 

Honestly this Manga is fantastic! Love the artstyle, the heartwarming story, and the overall warm feeling you get while reading this Manga. Highly recommend!!! 

If anyone is curious, I got the Manga with Volumes 1-2 in it :)
