#AtoZBlogChallenge: Manga

#AtoZBlogChallenge Topic: Manga

Manga are serialized comic or graphic novel stories created in Japan using a drawing style first developed in the 19th Century. This style includes characters with large eyes, small mouths, and, in many cases, with unusual hair color and/or style.

Other than the artistic style, what I also like about Manga stories are that they are not limited by genre.  A single Manga series can have multiple genres within it. Below are five of my favorite manga stories and the genres that are represented within them:

Vampire Knight

Genres: Romantic Fantasy, Vampire Drama, Young Adult Drama, School Comedy, Political Drama


Sailor Moon

Genres: Romance, Teen Comedy, School Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Science Fiction (Time Travel), Magical Girl


From Far Away

Genres: Romantic Fantasy Adventure


One Piece

Genres: Comedy, Fantasy, Pirate Adventure


Fruits Basket

Genres: Fantasy, Romantic Comedy, Teen School Comedy, Family Drama
