Spotlight on Anime

With the addition of a new club for teens in the library, Anime-niacs, it’s the perfect time to showcase some of the manga that have been adapted into anime series. Anime-niacs is open to teens ages 13-17 and the group will be watching anime series rated TV-14 or below.

Are you already reading manga, but you’re curious to start watching anime? Maybe you’ve already seen a lot of anime series but haven’t explored the original books. Or maybe you’re already doing both!

Check out a few of the manga series available in the graphic novel sections of the library, listed below. If you’ve read…
