The Favorites Alphabet

Welcome to the Favorites Alphabet, where the Manga Bookshelf battle robot glances through our respective libraries to pick a favorite manga title from each letter of the alphabet, whenever possible. We’re trying to stick with books that have been licensed and published in English, but we recognize that the alphabet is long, so we’re keeping a little wiggle room in reserve.

  • B is for Banana Fish, Basara, Black Blizzard, Black Jack, and Bleach
  • C is for City Hunter, Club 9, Cross Game, and Crown of Love
  • D is for Dominion, Dororo, and DVD
