Top Ten Tuesday – Manga for Your Library

Every public library that wants to have great Teen Services needs to have a great manga collection. This is just a fact of life. Teens love manga, and to keep them coming back for more you’ve got to have the next best thing for them to discover. Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is a list of manga that all public libraries should have. Note that I’ve left out the big names like Death NoteNaruto, and Bleach. Those are easy; this is about new/upcoming/uncommon series that your teens will know about and love, and you’re unlikely to find reviews of in Library journals.

I do have to mention that several of these belong in the ADULT graphic novel section of your library. While Spice & Wolf is the only one with a “Warning” label on the cover, Attack on Titan and Deadman Wonderland also contain a lot of violence, blood, and gore. However, they are incredible stories that have a lot to say about identity, authority, history, and culture.

Next, I have to apologize for the lack of links and such. Me and WordPress are fighting a lot lately, and it ate my links. What can you do?
