Dipping my toes into the sea of manga: Destiny's Hand by Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir, illustrated by Melvin Calingo

This was pretty easy to follow. There are a lot of different characters but they all have very specific distinguishing marks. Plus, the story was...pretty much Pirates of the Caribbean with a few other cliches thrown in. Plucky young girl, doesn't want an arranged marriage, joins the pirates who are led by The Gentleman Pirate. They're off to search for a treasure. There's a new breed of pirate that are nothing more than rogues and killers in their way. Etc.

The only problem with this story was that I don't like pirate fiction or fantasy. At all. Ever.
