My manga collection is relatively small compared to everything else I drop money on. Maybe that will change with time. But I greatly appreciate the medium itself for a variety of reasons. Death Note is the most compelling story I ever read in my life. Detroit Metal City is one of the funniest stories I ever read, as well as one of my favorites. And if you ever want to marvel at spectacular, wordless art for hundreds of pages, hunt down some volumes of Gon. Recommendations are in bold.
