In the Manga adaptation of The Jungle Book, a series of stories about Mowgli. a young boy raised in the jungle, and a number of animals is shared.
This was my first Manga, and I wasn’t sure how I would feel about it. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of this style of reading. I found the pictures distracting, the different-sized fonts unappealing, and some of the sketches were a bit too dramatic. This might be my last graphic novel, but that’s not to say others wouldn’t enjoy the book.
For one who hasn’t read the original The Jungle Book, I was a bit shocked that a good portion of the book did not focus on Mowgli, but on other animals. I wasn’t a big fan of this, but that was probably because my expectations were set a certain level and I was disappointed.
Overall, there’s really not much to say, except that I wasn’t a fan of this read. However, it was more of the style than anything else, and I feel fans of Manga and/or comic books would enjoy this.
