Japanese manga suggestions?
Does anyone have any suggestions for Japanese mangas (preferably with furigana to help learn kanji) that would be good for helping to learn the language? Either ones you can get online or buy from amazon or something?
If this gets a few replies I'd like to compile a list in an edit for others to use as well broken up into beginner, intermediate, and advanced. So if you have a suggestion please also add which level it would be best suited for.
- Polar Bear Cafe
- Slam Dunk
- Kowai! (short stories rather than manga)
- My Hero Academia
- Tokyo Ghoul
- The Promised Neverland
- Jojo's Bizzare Adventure
- Pure Girl
- Komi-san wa Komyushou Desu
- Full Metal Alchemist
My favorite beginner manga are Yotsubato and Polar Bear Cafe. They both use furigana and are focused on everyday life.
I've never read any manga in the original Japanese (I haven't gotten that far yet.) But i do know a manga that you can read for enjoyment. Komi-san wa Komyushou Desu, you have probably already read it, I mean, its pretty popular. The best way to explain the manga without spoilers: A ❤❤❤❤❤ for your heart, and fanservice for the soul. (i say this in a non-sexual way, its just too cute.)
My personal favorite is Osomatsu-kun! It's a kids' manga about a group of sextuplets and has been adapted into three animes (Osomatsu-kun in 1966, Osomatsu-kun in 1988, and Osomatsu-san in 2015! Note -san is not for kids lol.) The manga has furigana and is relatively simple language.
