Description

The manga phenomenon continues its unprecedented growth on both sides of the Atlantic. The stylized graphic-novel or comic-book art is now used to illustrate a wide range of subjects from science fiction and horror to comedy and romance, and it's easy to see why. The style is immediately appealing to a readership used to the fast action and drama of computer games, and the wide-eyed characters express a wide range of emotions with fewer words, a combination that attracts shy readers to the genre. And, anime - animated-film version of manga stories - has contributed to the trend so that the manga experience has now reached a hip, cult status among young people who consider it their own. Manga is the 'new rock 'n' roll'. Shojo manga is designed to appeal to young (13-16 year old) girls, and as tarot is already a firm favorite with female readers, "Selena's Shojo Manga Tarot" is guaranteed an enthusiastic reception. "Selena's Shojo Manga Tarot" comprises a full deck of 78 cards, made up of the conventional 22 Major Arcana cards, and the four suits of Swords, Cups, Pentacles and Wands each with illustrated pip cards (from Ace to Ten), plus four character Court cards. There is also an accompanying book that offers a brief background to the tarot, with information on: how to prepare for reading the cards, how to select cards for a reading, and how to consult them. Layouts are presented that cater for the kind of questions and issues that are likely to be posed by teenage girls: How can I make this boy interested in me? What does the boy I fancy think of me? Does he/she like me? How will I do in my next exam? How can I improve my exam results? Will it make a difference whether or not I go to the library today? And, how can I get on better with my parents?
