2010 Great Manga Gift Guide: Week 2

Hey everyone! Luckily this week was a bit more exciting than the because the Great Manga Gift Guides came rolling in steadily all week!

If you’re still looking to do a Great Manga Gift Guide or if you just want to read them all, you can check out the announcement post, the complete archive and the week 1 reminder. We still have until December 15th, so keep coming back for more Gift Guides and remember that you still have plenty of time to work on your own!

This morning started out with David Welsh of Manga Curmudgeon posting his One Piece MMF/Great Manga Gift guide crossover, the MMF: The Great Shounen Manga Gift Guide for 2010. For his gift guide, David kept in mind One Piece lovers, but recommended different shounen manga that would satisfy similar tastes. (And then added a few recommendations that didn’t have much to do with One Piece at all.) For more MMF goodness happening this month, check out his blog.

Anna over at Manga Report has one of the most well-rounded gift guides I’ve seen this year, covering everything from classic shoujo to seinen, alternative manga, box sets and a few things in between.

Keeping in the spirit of my favorite genre, I wrote another Great Shoujo Manga Gift Guide this year. It was a challenge as I kept venturing into manga that were shoujo or josei-like, but not actually of either genre. It’s very much a reflection of how my tastes have changed this past year to include more seinen and other mature titles, but hopefully it will please recipients who are beginning to mature in their tastes as well.

Angela Eastman wrote a great gift guide over at Bookworm’s Corner which includes something for just about everyone, including herself! Most of her picks were of the shoujo variety, but she also spiced it up with some seinen, biographical manga and shounen picks.

Reminding us that gift guides shouldn’t always be lists of manga that would please us bloggers, Katherine Dacey of The Manga Critic has a wonderful gift guide for the little ones, including elementary school readers as well as tweens and young teens. Just in case you wanted to expose a few of your younger relatives to manga or just spoil them with something they already love.

That’s all for the gift  guides posted this week, but don’t worry because I expect there will be plenty more to help you fill up those Christmas stockings (or just in case you need to cover a few more nights of Hanukkah.) Happy Manga Shopping!

If I’ve forgotten your Great Manga Gift Guide somewhere, please let me know!
