The other day, I had a wave of nostalgia hit me. It was while I was scrolling through the web looking for a new anime that I stumbled onto an old friend. An old friend that was a manga I read during my middle school years, and was making its reappearance again.
The best way to describe manga is the Japanese version of comic books. They come from all different genres. It can be dark or playful. I was first introduced to this style of story telling in middle school with the series, Fruits Basket. (I think everyone remembers their first fondly.) I reminisced on this series when I saw a news article talking about an animation company trying to reboot the series into a modern version. It brought back memories of the story that I followed for so long.
