Hey guys, we’ve already taken a look at my Light Novel collection so far, so this time, we’ll take a look at my Manga collection! Before we start, though, I must confess that my Manga collection is not nearly as impressive as my Light Novel collection. In fact, it’s actually kind of pathetic, but it’s still growing, so cut me some slack!
First off, and most prominently featured, is my My Hero Academia collection. I currently have Volumes 1 through 11 (though you may notice my Volume 1 is on loan, at the moment.) HeroAca is a series i’ve been following online for years, since around Chapter 1, if i’m being honest. However, the paperback English translations only started coming out very recently, but i’ve been buying them up as soon as they release (Volume 11 only released a few days ago.)
Next up, we’ve got Houseki no Kuni, otherwise known as Land of the Lustrous. This is a relatively recent addition to my collection, as the recent Anime adaptation of the manga absolutely blew my mind, with gorgeous visuals and a very interesting story. I have 4 volumes currently, which combined, have just about caught up to the story from the Anime. I can’t wait for Volume 5, and i’m loving Haruko Ichikawa’s ethereal, haunting art style. The manga has a very different feel to it than the Anime, but they’re both still fantastic.
Last up on the shelf, we’ve got a single, lonely volume of Made in Abyss. Another recent addition, I just couldn’t help myself; I needed to read the manga that had created such an enthralling, frightening, beautiful world, and the manga has definitely delivered. I’m waiting on 5 more volumes on pre-order, which should arrive sometime within the next year or so.
Obviously, this is not all the Manga i’ve read. It’s just rather difficult to get my hands on the stuff, where I live, so it’s a very slow process to accumulate my collection. I’ll come back to this shelf in a year or two, after I expand my collection enough to show it off again!
