Newly Acquired Manga

by Maureen Puffer-Rothenberg on March 24, 2009 in Odum Library

We have nine volumes of Sho Fumimura’s Sanctuary available to check out. It’s the story of two friends who take different paths in life– one to become a Yakuza boss and the other a struggling politician.

The call number for Sanctuary is PN 6728 .F86 S36. That’s on the Library’s third floor, in the older part of the building– near classroom #3270 and study room #3629. If you need help finding any call number, just ask.

You can read other manga online (including Fumimura’s Fist of the North Star) at One Manga.
