For less than $15 and much less heartache you can get a taste for the manga that you've heard so much about.

Bleach

Ichigo Kurosaki never asked for the ability to see ghosts--he was born with the gift. When his family is attacked by a Hollow--a malevolent lost soul--Ichigo becomes a Soul Reaper, dedicating his life to protecting the innocent and helping the tortured spirits themselves find peace. Find out why Tite Kubo's Bleach has become an international manga smash-hit!

Fullmetal Alchemist

Or maybe you've caught Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood on Adult Swim? The harrowing tale of two brothers in the quest to regain their humanity from Hiromu Arakawa will be available starting this month.

The law of equivalent exchange: in order to receive something, something of equal value must be given in return. This is the cardinal law of alchemy, the science of changing the material world and its minerals. The Elric Brothers are on a quest after trying to break this fundamental rule. After an alchemic experiment gone horribly wrong, Edward is left without an arm and leg and Alphonese without a body at all.

Kekkaishi

By day, Yoshimori Sumimura is your typical middle-school student dealing with typical problems: an obsession with sweets, getting too little sleep, and a crotchety grandpa. By night, Yoshimori works as a "kekkaishi" a demon-hunter who's charged with protecting the Karasumori site from ayakashi.

Naruto

Naruto and his classmates are about to embark on an adventure that takes them far beyond Ninja Academy, beyond Konoha, beyond anything they ever imagined. What is Naruto's true destiny? The epic story that has sold millions worldwide begins now!
