Card Captor Sakura, Volume 1 by Clamp
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
My first exposure to Japanese manga (or at least the first manga book I've read in years!), and it was a good one! Very predictable, but I still enjoyed it, and might just finish the other 5 books in the Cardcaptor Sakura series. Cute illustrations, as is typical of Japanese manga and anime. And BTW, I learned that it is pronounced Mon-ga, not Mang-a. And this is specifically Shojo manga, meaning a girl story. Shojo manga is typically about a heroine striving for love and friendship (as opposed to Shonen, meaning boy, which are usually about warriors striving for more power), but not lacking in any way the adventure a Shonen book may have. See? I did learn something in my graphic novels class. :) Fun.
