Hey CF members,

Was curious to know if anyone had suggested websites, books or other resources regarding casual comic book reading in either of these languages. I found a very helpful thread that was discussing this very topic for Chinese learners, but I'm looking to start reading some basic (Doraemon level)  comics in Japanese and Spanish as well.

Any resources or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Never read them myself, but heard good things about the Asterix Spanish editions.

For Spanish:

 

 - Basically anything that is of French or Belgian origin since the 1960's onwards is great in Spanish: Tintin, Asterix, Spirou, Valérian and Laureline.... As a kid I read them in both languages and the message was exactly the same. Very good translations. In Spanish you also have a great Comic industry between from the 60's to the 90's: basically everything that is done by Ibañez or similar artists, like Mortadelo y Filemón, 13 Rue del Percebe, Superlópez.... Don't know about a website in particular, but if you google the query in Spanish there are many.

 

For Japanese:

 

- Mangadex is a great place for any manga (if you like to surf the Caribbean with an eye-patch). I don't really read anything else outside of Dragon Ball, One Piece or Detective Conan, and I do so in Chinese mostly. In either language those manga seem to have a rather simple vocabulary, so you shouldn't have much trouble... even at lower levels (used to read them as a kid as well).

They have a Chinese version of Dragon Ball and other Shonen animes?!?😲 Mind Blown.  Where did you go for that?

Of course, many of the popular/old style animes are even dubbed in Mandarin (you can find them in Youku/Iqiyi/QQ), although the sound/video quality is mono or crappy at best for most. 

 

As per manga, I usually read them in Chinese instead of English/French/Spanish because it's the fastest translation out there. Just google/baidu/bing the manga name + chapter + chinese and you'll get many Chinese scanlation websites.
