Any easy Japanese web comics out there with furigana?

Postby englishsushi » August 5th, 2012 3:41 am

I'm looking for an easy (so maybe even for kids) web comic with furigana. I figure bite-size Japanese like this might be easier to study and enjoy. Does anybody know of any web comics like this?

englishsushi-san,
I agree with you! It's always good to have "bite-size" materials :wink:
I don't really know any good websites of comics, but it might be a good idea to look for manga with 4 sceans (4 koma manga).
4-koma manga has 4 boxes of images with short (complete) story in it. It's usually a humourous.
I tried to search online, but it might be difficult to find one with furigana.
Hope this little info will help you a bit.
Good luck! :wink:

I found this Furigana comic, and really enjoyed it. Maybe it will work for you. <a href="http://amzn.to/1egs0rg">Rashomon and other Stories with Furigana: (In a Grove, Nose, Spider's Thread, Hell Screen, Autumn Mountain)</a>
