Happy Friday! It’s going to be a fun weekend. We’re going to Kami-con on Saturday. My husband and his brother are really into anime and manga, so this is a trip for them. But I’m looking forward to it too. I’ve been dipping my toes into the manga genre recently, and so in celebration of Kami-con let’s talk about the manga that I want to read.
Witch Hat Atelier
I started Witch Hat Atelier on a whim last year. I saw it in the store and thought it seemed fun. And it was. I really want to pick up the next chapter because I’ve only heard good things about it.
The Girl from the Other Side
Honestly, I don’t know a lot about The Girl from the Other Side but look at the artwork! It’s gorgeous. Then I read the synopsis and it sounds even better. It’s described as a quiet fairytale and I’m here for it.
I’m not knew to Junji Ito so of course I had to add one of his to the list. I really want to pick up Frankenstein next. I’ve been drawn to it ever since I started reading his work, but I haven’t been able to get my hands on a copy yet. But if I don’t find it in stores soon, I’m just going to order it.
So those are a few manga that I want to read.
