Hi everyone and welcome to My Manga Books (ノ^∇^)
Violet & Suzuran
We have two authors on this site:
Violet – The one writing this About Page（⌒▽⌒ゞ and the main writer of this blog. A huge fan of 07-Ghost, shoujo manga, and female mangakas (≡^∇^≡)
Suzuran – Violet’s sister and the secondary writer of this blog. No particular preference on what she likes to read so she basically reads mostly anything d=(´▽｀)=b
Our Manga Lives
Like most manga fans, we discovered anime first when we used to watch Naruto on cable TV. We then discovered Bleach then the corresponding manga and the rest is history d┃･∀･┃b
We both prefer to read manga before looking at the anime so we read more manga than watch anime in general and stop if we see that the anime is not fulfilling canon. We still love anime! We just don’t watch it as much.
This blog is pretty much us sharing our thoughts on various manga genres, our recommendations for our readers, and places where to buy physical copies of manga. Even though we use online sources to read most of the time, we do have a collection of hardcopy manga that we absolutely love. There’s something wonderful about faded and yellowed pages don’t you think?
Just a disclaimer: Most of our thoughts and recommendations are solely based on our opinions. We may not follow trends closely but if our interests align, you may see some popular trends being mentioned in our posts.
So please don’t be butthurt when we don’t mention popular favourites or your favourite manga ∩( ´∀` )∩
Official vs. Fan Translations
We know what you’re thinking. We don’t have anything against fan-translated sites or free-distributing manga sites. In fact, we love them very much and appreciate all the work they put in ೭੧(❛▿❛✿)੭೨
However, it is insanely hard to discern which sites keep track of manga that has been licensed and which ones don’t.
Which is why our general stance regarding looking for free manga online is: Read but please support the original publishing companies and mangakas by buying the physical copies.
In addition, we will also not recommend any anime-reading sites because of this. We want to keep our site safe φ(*⌒▽⌒)ﾉ
We love sharing what we find enjoyable and we hope you take joy back with you when you read our lovely posts based on our experience with manga (*＾v＾*)
