After binge-reading Deathnote, I was on the lookout for some series which was equally dark and suspenseful. I tried several manga series but didn’t feel like continuing any of those. I visited Kinokuniya bookstore and asked the staff to recommend me some series which was like Deathnote and they recommended Erased to me. They were absolutely right when they said it was like Deathnote.
This is the second post in my series of posts on bookstores. Link to my previous bookstore visit post.
I first came to know about Kinokuniya bookstore when I enquired about Death Note funko pops at a Japanese store in a local mall. The shopkeeper asked me to check in the Kinokuniya bookstore. I visited a small local branch of this bookstore in South Bay which is inside a Japanese super market but I wasn’t that impressed with the manga collection there. Recently, during a visit to San Francisco, I checked their San Francisco branch and it was amazing.
I have not read many manga but my first manga was Naruto Vol. 1 which I liked but did not feel compelled enough to continue. I then picked Death Note and absolutely loved it. After finishing Death Note series, I have been planning to read more manga. This month, I finally read some manga which I picked from my local library and liked all of them.
