It doesn’t really matter to me, I only started reading manga a few years before I turned 50 years old, and I find that something like “Kimi ni Todoke” is just great to read. But if you want something with more maturely behaving characters, I would recommend “You’re Under Arrest”, “Honey and Clover” and “Genshiken”.
Oh, Honey & Clover is my favourite! ;) I haven’t really researched what’s good or bad, but pick up the odd book now and then at our book outlet–it sells copies with defects really cheap…and most of them are shoujo, hahaha.
Ugh same… I still love reading manga and watching anime but very few works deal with adults, usually if I’m lucky it’s “Young Adult”, but still… I feel sorta bad about it sometimes. Need more manga/anime with adults/older people as protagonist!
The worst part may be that anyone 20+ is referred to as “getting old” in those comics… :'(
Haha…!! Same with me…:D)! But after some time you notice how you get older and the those characters stay forever young ;)! I just found out about Harlequin comics around 2 years ago, I read them online – romantic but super cheesy ;)! Do you read them too? I don’t really read manga anymore but growing up it’s a huge part of my life – so I was mostly spending my free time reading (and trying to create manga myself) instead of studying *lol*. My fav genre was historical though (and of course with bits and pieces of romance). But I think now I am getting too old to be excited by those corny stories – no offence intended, since I think we are about the same age ;)!
