About meI work in a library, though I'm not a librarian.
About my libraryThere's a lot of shoujo manga (Japanese comics created for girls) in my collection, but I do read some shounen, seinen, and josei. Quite a few of the manga titles in my library are in both English and Japanese and most of the Japanese titles were bought when there was little to no chance of them ever being released in English (which was not all that long ago...).
