About Our Manga Club

[manga kurabu]

Come to Next Chapter Booksellers at 5:00pm on the second Saturday of every month to talk manga with other otaku! Hosted by our resident manga-dork Graham, the Manga Club provides a forum to casually discuss a new title every month -- no RSVP required!

The title for the upcoming meeting will be 15% off all month, every month. Shonen, shojo, seinen, josei – we’ll be covering a little of everything, so get ready to discover some new favorites! You bring your opinions and ideas, and we’ll bring the Ramune and Pocky. 

Below are some titles we might be reading later on. For a list of titles we've discussed in the past, go here. Check the Manga Club meetings on our events calendar to see upcoming books we've decided on for sure -- including what we'll be discussing at our next meeting!
