Hey Hey Blerdy Tribe! Do you ever feel overwhelmed? Between work, responsibilities, and bills… life can be pretty stressful and it’s kind of hard to fit in time for just relaxing. Hell, even hobbies can seem like work. So when I start to feel burn out rearing its ugly head I like to take a step back and chill with one of my tried and true comfort manga. A comfort manga is a series that you love, that you can read over and over again without having to worry about how the story ends. Comfort manga are like a warm embrace or an old friend, it makes you feel good to read it and when you’re not feeling your best these series are great for relieving stress. Comfort manga don’t have to be the best and they more often than not aren’t wholesome or comfy, in fact they can be downright trashy (most of mine are pretty questionable), but what’s most important is how reading the series makes you feel!
So today, I’m sharing my comfort manga, these are the series that I can read over and over again and even though I know how they end I never seem to get bored… When life gets me down these are the series that I read to mellow out…
