What I've Learned from Reading Manga

I know most people will dismiss this as childish. How could an adult possibly learn anything from Manga/comic book?! Isn't it just for children? Well, despite what you may think, I have learned a lot about life from these stories and I think it would be good if people did as well. Perhaps I'm just reading more into it than is there. Whatever the reason, the message in my head is clear and here they are.

(In no particular order)
  • You should always work your hardest to be strong. If you're not strong (whether physically, mentally, socially, or even economically), you will not be able to protect the innocent or the ones you love
  • No matter how strong you think you are, there will always be someone bigger, badder, and better than you. Always strive to be better
  • If you choose the right people to trust and believe in, they will go to the ends of the world with you
  • Taking advantage of the weak is not power. Power comes from being able to stand up and protect the weak
  • Believe in your friends and those that you trust, but most importantly, believe in yourself. Find the strength from within
  • Always believe. Even when the odds seems overwhelmingly against you. Always believe you can succeed
  • A life without honor is no life at all
