Uh-oh… checks calendar
Totally agree with you, I also prefer written text to manga.
For me it is just the other way around Manga texts are oral speech only, and as such they are the way people speak: slurred, slang, incomplete sentences and so on (especially Yotsuba ). I find that much harder to understand.
So, having said that… I would like to nominate:
おおかみこどもの雨と雪 Light Novel, slice of life ebookwalker
It’s about a young student who falls in love with a werewolf (he’s really nice though) - they have two children (called 雨 and 雪) together and the story is basically about the children growing up. Which is slightly more exciting than raising “normal” human children…
The book is 2nd place in the FloFlo wishlist, so maybe the vocab list will be available there at some point…
And, @QuackingShoe, what about nominating the book we recently discussed in the FloFlo thread? I would be interested to read that one.
Finally, to embrace all the manga lovers out there, I might make up my mind to nominate the キノの旅 manga… ebookwalker
There seem to be only 3 manga in the series, so there’s hope we won’t get stuck on that one for eternity…
