Overview

The adorable characters from Manga University's best-selling "Manga Moods" leap off the printed page and onto the screens of your Nook or Nook-enabled device! It's an art class and a language lesson all rolled into one. And in full color!

A raised eyebrow, a curled lip, a wink of the eye. All it takes is a clever stroke of the G-pen to instantly change a manga character’s mood from one extreme to the other: glad to sad, sneaky to shy, angry to embarrassed. In "Manga Moods: 40 Faces + 80 Phrases", Saori Takarai presents a series of full-color drawings to show just how these transformations take place.

In addition, each of the facial expressions is labeled with the English and Japanese words for the mood being, along with Japanese conversational phrases and their translations. The phrases are romanized for easy learning, and at the back of the book you’ll find handy charts of the hiragana phonetic alphabet that you can use to transcribe the romanized words into authentic Japanese writing.

"Much more than a collection of cute characters, "Manga Moods" provides you a fresh new way of looking — and laughing — at life.

    LOTS AND LOTS OF ADORABLE PAGES!

    The review that says this book only has 15 pages is wrong. There are many more pages than that. I counted 40 different full-page illustrations. And every one of them is adorable!

    That grouchy reviewer was probably just in a bad "manga mood" ^_^

    So Cute

    I love this book. It's cute, and very helpful (to me anyways) I especially find the various phrases funny. Very worth it, or, as my friend would say, "Kawaii Desu~!"

    For your information

    It does not actually teach you how to draw the faces. But it is really cute. Fun to look at! If you want to see my favorite, look at page eighteen!
