Advantages: gently thought provoking, yet affirming, entertainment
Disadvantages: I think the age recommendation is a bit off

I have to hold up my hand here and admit I have loved anime and manga now for well over 20 years. It's not something I am ashamed of by any means, but I think I should mention the fact in passing as it then follows that over the course of twenty odd years ...

Exiles: Volume 15 Enemy of the Stars
