    Another solid entry in this series!

    This is an easy-to-use and very affordable how-to-draw-manga guide. I already had this on the Amazon Kindle, and now will get it for my new Nook (which I think is better than the Kindle).

    Beautiful

    I love this book. It shows you how to draw different hand positions and the correct size ratio of hand to body. I found it really useful to get me started.

    .w. adding onto 'to olivia'

    I watched 3 anime/manga shows. Only one of the three were a little sexual, but thy just talked about pornography. Soul eater, my favorite of the three, was appropriate but swore at times. It also had a bunch of insanity and madness toward the end. It was also hilarious. The only innapropriate parts were with Blair, a neko witch who likes Soul. The first one ive seen is Hetalia:Axis Powers. Its very funny and swears rarely. The worse swear word i heard was 'Damn'. It has like, two gay episodes but thats what made it adorable! Chobits is the one that talks about pornography. There is a little nudity but you barely see it. All these animes are rated Tv-14. (But of course me being 11 and still watched them, tehee.) Also one of the animes tha are kid appropriate are Pokemon. All of them dont involve hentai,yaoi, or yuri. But ive seen a really innapropiate one called 'kissxsis'. I reccomend no one under 14 watches that. (But of course, i did. Lol.) I saw thr first thre on netflix and Pokemon comes on in the morning on Cartoon Network so when i got up early i watched that as well as beyblade. Kissxsis i watched on youtube. Reply To Miranda.

    To olivia.

    Absolutely not. There are many wonderful manga out there that contain no sex. For example, some of my favorites: Attack on titan, madoka magica, pandora hearts, monster(which might become a live action hbo series), my little monster, karneval, clannad, canon, and FMA. Some of those are emotional but there are funny/cute ones like my little monster and karneval. It's just that nook sells the sexual manga on here, rather than instore i believe. Too bad. Also, all of those have become anime's so it's worth checking the animes out too. They're all available on crunchyroll and hulu :) anyway hoped that answered and gave you good suggestions!! :D

    I don't think that manga is always about sex.
