Go West?

The space for shelving manga at the West Duluth branch has doubled! So I need to buy lots of new books for the branch. The patrons there seem to prefer boy’s manga, but I thought I should throw in a few girl’s manga titles as well.

Here are some titles I am thinking of ordering. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

Beet the Vandel Buster is a fun book, rated for all ages. The story features a boy, Beet, who has dedicated himself to destroy the monsters known as Vandels. Some Vandels are barely more than mindless beasts, but some are very clever.

Hunter X Hunter follows the adventures of Gon, a country boy who wants to become a Hunter. This series is rated T+ for older teens.

The .hack//Legend of Twilight series has been rather popular at the main library so I decided to add these two new series to the main library and West library. The .hack stories take place principally in the virtual game called “The World.” Real people create or are assigned avatars; the characters which they use to interact in “The World.”

.hack//xxxx is the origin story of the famous avatars Kite and BlackRose. In the real world, a boy is suddenly sent into a coma when he takes a hit to protect his friend, Kite, in “The World.” The game turns dark as Kite must unravel the mystery behind his friend’s coma.

.hack//g.u. is set in the far future of the.hack universe. “The World” has become a vary dangerous place; overrun with lawless characters. Haseo tries to protect “The World” by hunting down those who attack and kill in the game. Things turn deadly when the avatar killer TriEdge threatens Haseo’s real world friends.

Both series are rated T for teens 13 and up.

Gakuen Alice and Muhyo & Roji’s Bureau of Supernatural Investigation are two more all new series for the library.

In Gakuen Alice, Mikan follows her best friend Hotaru to the exclusive Alice Academy. To stay with her friend, Mikan must prove that she has a special talent that makes her worthy of the Academy. This series is rated T for teens age 13 and up.

Muhyo & Roji’s Bureau of Supernatural Investigation battles evil ghosts, exorcises unwanted spirit possessions, and otherwise deals justice to the spirit world. Rated T for Teens 13 and up.

And last, but not least, is Spider-man! The Marvel Adventures Spider-man series updates Spider-man’s earliest stories. Green Goblin, Sandman, Doctor Doom and more villains battle Spider-man in this exciting series. Marvel rates this series for All Ages.

  1. Sadly, Beet the Vandel Buster was discontinued in Japan so there isn’t any more here.
