Reception[edit]

Manga Life's Kelvin Green comments that the "eclectic nature of the book is one of its strengths".[6] ComicMix's Andrew Wheeler comments on the Mammoth Book of Best New Manga series about how most of the work are "nearly all British and that none of them are, oh, Japanese" despite having manga in its title.[7] Paul Gravett comments on the diversity of the works in the second book that are "compiled from as far afield as Sweden and Thailand."[8] Dan Murphy from The Buffalo News commends the third book for doing "what it sets out to do and serves up a sampler platter of a variety of styles and forms."[9]
