Exciting times at the library.  We are starting to build our manga collection!  Thanks to all the students who have helped us non-manga literates find some awesome titles.

What happens when an elfin prince, a Yokai demon-warrior and a human thief are thrown together on an epic quest?  In the case of Rune, Rath and Thatz, there’s  a glaring lack of fellowship.  The Dragon Lord Lykouleon has sent the bickering trio of knights to recover the head of his enemy, Nadil, to prevent the demon king from being resurrected by the powers of darkness.  But with a man-eating witch, a pair of evil psychics and an army of werewolves out to get the head for themselves, the Dragon Knights are up to their necks in trouble.





As a child, Monkey D. Luffy was inspired to become a pirate by listening to the tales of the buccaneer “Red Haired” Shanks.  But his life changed when Luffy accidentally ate the fruit of the Gum-Gum Tree, and gained the power to stretch like rubber… at the cost of never being able to swim again!  Years later, still vowing to become king of the pirates, Luffy sets out on his adventure… one guy alone in a rowboat, in search of the legendary “One Piece,” said to be the greatest treasure in the world…





A shaman in Tokyo.  To most people, ghosts are the stuff of horror stories and nightmares.  But to Yoh Asakura, a transfer student at Shinra Private Junior High, they’re his friends! Yoh Asakura is a shaman – one of the gifted few who can speak to spirits.  By channeling ghosts into his body – like the long-dead samurai Amidamaru – he can allow them to possess him and use their powers.  But a modern-day shaman faces great responsibilities, because spirits – and the people who work with them – can be very dangerous indeed…






All recommendations for YA manga (yes, there is manga out there that is definitely NOT meant for youth) for boys is welcome.
