Manga 101: The Philippine Daily Inquirer offers an introduction to manga, then reviews a handful of titles, including Eerie Queerie, Fruits Basket and Petshop of Horrors:

"In the world of manga, imagination knows no rules. You can very well find yourself addicted to manga soon after your first book, and craving for a daily fix of it like you do for your daily soap opera. After all, the drama, comedy, action and romance quotient run as high as TV serials. That's why it comes as no surprise that popular manga stories are routinely translated into animation."
