No doubt about it -- manga (Japanese comics) are popular in the west. And there are plenty of manga-based tarots on the market. The Italian tarot powerhouse of Lo Scarabeo jumps on the Manga bandwagon here, with a deck that's not based on a specific Asian manga, but attempts to capture the manga style in its imagery. The results are mixed -- the artwork is beautiful, and definitely Asian in flavor. But manga in style? A bit debatable, although it's clear that the style is manga-inspired. But, nickpicking aside, you could do a lot worse than to employ this deck for readings. The imagery is pleasant on whatever yardstick you use to measure it.
