Manga Come to Life?


I’m a chronic manga and comic reader as well as graphic novels. I do love Josei titles but unfortunately there aren’t a ton of offerings in print that are English. I’m EAGERLY awaiting Saga Volume 3. My close friend Angel owns a game shop in Flushing and he sells manga, graphic novels, etc so I AM HOPING that he gets an early release on it, I can’t wait until April OMGZ!

Anyway…I just discovered Drawn by Marian Tee as Amazon recommended it to me, must be all the pre-books I did for upcoming manga like Happy Marriage!

Anyway, Marian sounds like a complete geek which is one thing that drew me in. The other thing was I thought it was interesting that this was her version of a naughty manga for adults sans any actually drawings…just more story, less comic.


It seems rather odd reading a manga based story without pictures…

But I thought I’d give a whirl!

I’ll let ya know what I think! Seems like straight up smut but lord knows I’ll read anything with words and smut never bothered me.

What are you reading right now?

    Oh man, I’m reading so much manga right now. I’m loving brides story; it’s beautiful. I can’t wait for the next chapter! I’ve also been rereading a bunch of old favorites, like honey and clover, and sailor moon.

    Also, not a manga but Gunnerkrigg Court is my favorite web comic/western comic in general and the most recent chapter has been so good and interesting! I can’t wait for tomorrows update.

    Anything by Nagae Tomomi I always will buy. I’m not sure if any of her works have been released officially in English though.

      No :(

    I just finished the Richelle Mead Dark Swan books. Before that I read the latest Yasmine Galenorn and Chloe Neil. I’m not sure what I’ll be reading next.

    On the note of manga come to life, I feel like Teen Wolf is a live action anime. I love it to bits!

    I love manga but never really got into the josei genre. Titles like Vagabond and Pluto are more my thing. Recently I got sucked into Attack on Titan. It’s a convoluted mess of a story but I absolutely love it :)


    • 2/12/14 17:12 Isabella Muse:

      I love all forms of manga 😀 but def venture into josei from time to time, it’s good fun ;-D Vagabond is awesome!

    My faves among josei are anything by Ai Yazawa. It sucks that she hasn’t released anything for a while…

      Ai Yazawa is awesome :) Nana is truly epic!
