VISITOR RATINGS & REVIEWS
few countries have embraced manga (comic books) so eagerly as Taiwan.
Leisure-Manga, as its name suggests, it dedicated to every facet
of manga culture - not only the comic books themselves, of which
there is a fine selection, but also to posters, stationery, VCDs
and DVDs, computer games, picture books, stickers, badges, baseball
caps, and trinkets. This basement store also has a good range of
youth-oriented magazines (most in Chinese, some in Japanese, but
none in English), while the first and second floors offer Internet
access, comics and magazines for browsing, plus fax and photocopying
facilities. Customers pay by the hour; food and beverages are extra.
Given Leisure-Mangas proximity
to the Kaohsiung Train Station and its spotless, bright interior,
this looks to be a pleasant place to kill time before a journey.
For manga devotees, of course, it could become a Mecca. By Steven
