I really miss the days of manga chapters coming out as comic books because there was so much beautiful color art! Graphic-novels only lost a lot of that, except with some newer releases with a few color pages/etc. at the front. Adorableness within. Call Me Princess, one of Tomoko Taniguchi's graphic novels. This came out as a comic-sized paperback, though I think it later got a manga-sized reprint. Share any favourite shoujo holiday moments or pictures below, and have a safe, happy holiday season, whatever you celebrate. What British (and Antipodean) girls had instead. Kodama, Mar. 1962 cover by Kishida Harumi found via monkeyday on Pinterest Comic-Sized Issue 1 of the Saint Tail manga! On the back is an advertisement for Miracle Girls, which I'll post another day. Tokyopop had some great old shoujo titles! Finding random comic-style issues of Tomoko Taniguchi's manga in college was my introduction to shoujo. (Also, those are both young men on this cover!) On the back of Saint Tail 1, there's this lovely advertisement for Miracle Girls, which is a series about twins with the power to teleport!
