View topic - Kids Manga Recommendations?
My nephew is 9 and getting into graphic novels (according to his father). I think Manga fits this category and would open an avenue into Japanese. He is a smart kid and would enjoy learning Japanese if inspired.
So, can anyone recommend any graphic novels/ manga series or one-off's, suitable for a 9-yr old boy, with English translations to start with because I want to inspire him to learn Japanese by himself rather than suggest he learn it by giving him manga written only in Japanese?

For example, Hunter x Hunter is my favourite anime/manga, and it would be great for 9 year olds except there's a lot of violence and gore that a lot of parents I know wouldn't tolerate, if only because its a bad influence.
I'm not an avid reader, but I'd recommend Naruto or One-piece which are very famous manga in Japan and I personally love them too.

I've never read One Piece, but it looks like it might be lighter than Naruto. They're both incredibly popular.
