Whilst its roots date back to twelfth-century Japan, modern Manga is a postwar phenomenon, originating with the pioneering Astro Boy and increasing in popularity and cultural importance in the following decades. Here you will find greats of the genre like Death Note, Naruto and One Piece as well as modern day favourites such as Assassination Classroom and My Hero Academia. We have also put together a series of helpful blogs for new Manga fans, or anybody looking for their next favourite read.
