Are you a lover of Japanese manga? Summer Reading 2015 is all about celebrating heroes! There is no better way for a manga lover to start out this summer by checking out our Manga Superheroes summer reading list. Here are just a few selections from that list that come recommended by KDL staff:
GRAPHIC TEEN BLEACH
Ichigo Kurosaki has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn’t change his life nearly as much as his close encounter with Rukia Kuchiki. While fighting an evil spirit, Rukia lends Ichigo some of her powers so that he can save his family. But much to her surprise, Ichigo becomes a Soul Reaper himself.
GRAPHIC TEEN FAIRY
Across the Fiore kingdom, wizards join guilds and make their pay by filling magical needs—but one guild has a reputation as the roughest, rowdiest, most dangerous of all: Fairy Tail! When four young Fairy Tail members unite, their bond is forged by a power found in neither muscle nor magic and grows stronger with every mission.
Fullmetal Alchemist Hiromu Arakawa
GRAPHIC TEEN FULLMETAL
As young boys, Edward & Alphonse Elric dabbled in alchemy to try to resurrect their dead mother. As a result, Ed lost one arm and one leg, while Al lost his entire body and had his spirit sealed into a suit of armor. Now, they are searching for the fabled Philosopher’s Stone to restore what they’ve lost.
Inuyasha Rumiko Takahashi
GRAPHIC TEEN INUYASHA
Transported back to Japan’s feudal era, high school student Kagome accidentally releases the feral half-demon dog boy Inuyasha from his imprisonment for stealing the Jewel of Four Souls.
