Meet some of Manga's coolest characters d=(´▽`)=b

The Lazy But Helpful Samurai

One of the best things about Japanese manga is the characters. From the heroes and heroines to their sidekicks and enemies, every character in a manga has his or her own personality. The manga artists' detailed depictions of the characters draw readers deep into the stories. Let's meet some characters from two manga that are popular with Japanese kids right now.

The first manga is Gin Tama. In this story, aliens suddenly arrive in Japan during the Edo period (1603-1868), when samurai warriors were still active and the city of Tokyo was called Edo. A long battle begins between the people and the aliens, but the aliens are so strong that the leaders of Edo have to accept their demands. The aliens walk around Edo, looking down on the people. Meanwhile, the samurai who fought against them have to give up their swords, and many of them lose the will to live . . .

The hero of this story is Sakata Gintoki, who keeps his samurai courage alive amid the despair. Gintoki runs an odd-job shop, where people come to ask him to solve all kinds of problems. He has a habit of prying into any sort of trouble that happens in Edo. Although he's generally lazy and is always cursing, what Gintoki values above anything else is giri-ninjo, or the spirit of keeping promises and being compassionate. He lends a hand whenever he sees someone in trouble and sometimes has to fight to help people out.

The Wizards Who Put Friendship First

Gin Tama is a fun, joke-packed manga that is a big hit with Japanese kids, who think Gintoki is cool for being so kind. Among the other colorful characters are a girl called Kagura, who loves eating and is amazingly strong, and Shimura Shinpachi, the son and heir of a sword-fighting master.

Another of many unique manga characters is Lucy, the heroine of the Fairy Tail series. Lucy is a young girl who is determined to become a great wizard. One day, she meets a wizard called Natsu, whose special skill is using fire. Natsu invites Lucy to join Fairy Tail, the guild of wizards to which he belongs. (A guild is a group that finds jobs for wizards, and anyone who wants to be a great wizard has to join one.) Fairy Tail is not like other guilds, though, because each of its members is an unusual, one-of-a-kind wizard. What makes Fairy Tail special is that all the wizards accept each other for who they are, including their strengths, weaknesses, and secrets from their past. They trust each other and are always ready to help each other, even if it means making a personal sacrifice. A lot of kids see parallels with their own lives as they read about Lucy and the other wizards growing up together as close friends.

What these two manga have in common is the appealing way that both the main characters and their enemies are portrayed. Even after a battle is over, the villains remain in the story as important characters, which means that the worlds depicted in these manga keep getting wider and wider. This is also one of the reasons why these works have become long-running series and have been turned into successful TV anime.
