More About Manga

The day I bought that manga for junior high school girls (- -); I also got two others. "Honey and Clover" was one, and "Ouran" was the other. I know both stories, well more or less, but Honey and Clover was impossible to read. It doesn't have furigana in some places, and I have to look up every second word up in the dictionary.

Ouran was a bit hard to read too, but there is furigana everywhere, and it wasn't every second word, it was maybe every third word that I had to look up. It's still a lot, but I am really going to give it a go. I think it will be a pretty good way to study, even though it's a bit too difficult. I love Ouran so much anyway :D. It sure beats reading junior high school romance manga O_o... I mean, maybe that other manga is a good book, but it's quite way below my level, and the story isn't so great, and also I don't really like the illustrator either.

And of all the illustrators whose work I've seen, Watsuki Nobuhiro is my favourite. He is the one who made Kenshin manga.

~ Studying Japanese reminds me of studying English back in the day. Then me and my brother used to watch movies with a valid excuse that it was for the purpose of studying English. Now I can read manga and watch drama with the just as valid excuse that it's for studying Japanese, because it actually is. Don't you love language study? ^ ^
