International Manga Library!

Last month Meiji University in Tokyo opened the International Manga Library on its Surugadai campus.   According to this article from the Japan Times Online, the library has over 2 million volumes of manga, and if you’re ever in Tokyo, you could become a one-day member.

The Carnegie Library system doesn’t have a manga collection that’s quite that big, but ours isn’t too shabby.  Our librarians have put together a booklist of recommendations over on the Books and More section of our teen page, or you can browse our holdings by clicking here.  That’s 678 records, and some of those records are for series with 20+ volumes, so it would take someone a while to work through them all. 

Other Resources:

  • If you are getting a gift of money for the holidays and need some fun Japanese swag to use it on, there’s a shop in Pittsburgh called Kawaii that might be able to help.
  • Shonen Jump and Shojo Beat will give you previews of new manga on their websites.
