8 Manga I Want to Read in 2018

August 27, 2018

Similarly, to the graphic novels post (here) I got into manga really late on. I found it again, very intimidating. There are so many series', so many variations and so many different stories. Now that I've started down the rabbit hole I don't want to stop. I've collected the quite the collection and there are so many more series' that I want to read. For now, these are some of the series I want to get to this year.

Alice in Murderland V1

Alice is one of my favourite stories regardless of what format its in. I love all the various incarnations of the film, the original text, simply anything. Of course I was going to want to read a manga based around the story! The fact it appears to have a gothic twist? Even better.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Maid Sama V1

Yet more fluff. And more fluff involving a school at that! I don't really need to say much more than that really. This has been on a list of must read manga lists and honestly, I'm easily swayed.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Ouran Highschool Host Club V1

I love pure fluffy manga. It makes me happy, its like my version of chick flicks. I've heard wonderful things about Ouran High School Host Club and looking at the plot it seems perfect for me. An elite school club where undoubtedly a romance will blossom? Yes please.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Norogami V1

This sounds like the perfect blend of cutesy and fantasy. it reminds me vaguely of Is it Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon. Can't wait to dive into this series, and theres plenty of it!

You can find the Goodreads page here.

4. Manga

I adored the anime of this series and I've heard the manga is even better! it's so dark and twisted. I can't believe I haven't already read this!

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Assassination Classroom V1

I have absolutely no idea what this is about, but I've seen so many recommendations for it that I just have to give it a go. I saw something about an octopus teacher? Um okayyy...

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Forbidden Scrolley V1

I adore the premise of this. A girl with the ability to translate any book she finds. As a book lover this is a dream come true. I love languages too so I'm really excited to give this one a read.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Fruits Basket V1

I blame Fi for this.

You can find the Goodreads page here.

Those are the Manga I want to read in 2018.

Do you want to read any of these?

Or are there some others?

Thank-you for reading,

Katie x

    You totally need to read Maid Sama! The anime leaves you wanting for so MUCH MORE. And the manga more than fullfills those cravings :3 Usui and Misaki are such a cute power couple and I’ll always miss their story.

      It’s so cool!
      Oh, I’ve seen that at work but never actually picked it up. It looks like something I’d enjoy.
