Top 5 Manga
Stemming from Johanna's idea my top five current manga series:
1. Hot Gimmick - Fun and insightful soap opera drama dealing with teens living in a corporate housing unit.
2. Kindaichi Case Files - Outstanding mystery series with teen leads that are as interesting as the mysteries they solve.
3. The Malay Mysteries Books - Hauntingly detailed horror stories centered in Asia.
4. Othello - Fun series about a teen girl with split personalities, one of whom is a real heroic figure.
5. Planetes - Great sci-fi series that though the series is based a lot in outerspace, has real down to Earth emotional stories.
