as we're fond of Japanese Cartoons, our club also collects "Manga"
or Japanese Comics. Personally, I collect manga because of the

in most "action panels". Even though I don't speak a
word of Japanese (save the occassional phrase or two) and I don't
understand Kanji, Katakana, or Hiragana; I'm still able to enjoy
