Azumanga Daioh Now Sexy Bikini Manga



The rereleased “remastered” version of Sakaki-san manga Azumanga Daioh caught no small amount of attention with its distinctly oppai-centric additions in the first volume, as well as having substantially redrawn portions, and it appears this direction continues in the later volumes…

    You should try shoujo manga rather than shounen because most shoujo manga tend to have school settings and tend to depict a wide range of everyday situation. I learned Japanese with Cardcaptor Sakura and Aka-chan... More
