¡Manga Expedition, all aboard!
Hello, fellow explorers, it’s my duty to be your guide on this amazing, vast and yet barely known world of Manga.
Yes, yes, Manga IS indeed one type of “comic”. Actually, the inspiration for the “manga” style of foreigners were comics released and sent all over the world to gain popularity, thus, people from the Eastern culture adopted the “comic” style and adapted it at their own style, creating now these awesome and now, worldwide style of graphic drawing that can transmit so many feelings and can make you so immerse on the story that you completely forget about time.
(This is the part where I suggest you to take a look at manga on your free time. Please, don’t procrastinate! )

Story of Usagi Tsukino, a clumsy student, begins to unfold as she discovers her power within gathered over the milleniia, and what the destiny’s held for her. In the name of the moon!
