3.0 out of 5 stars Nice Set for teenage girls., 24 Oct 2012
FAMOUS NAME (UNITED KINGDOM) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Manga Tarot (Cards)
I purchased these because I read `Manga' and as a Collector for my growing collection of Tarot and Oracle Decks - even though they looked as if they'd been designed more for girls (the predominant colour being pink) and having received them, one can see clearly that this is who these Cards are aimed at...

These are very `teenage girly' and cannot really be taken too seriously - this comes out not only in the design and packaging, but also in some of the very juvenile interpretations in the included book. (i.e.; you need to do your homework!?? It's a long, long time since I've been advised to do any of that!! LOL)

A child - and preferably a girl would delight in these - but don't go buying them for yourself or for an adult, unless like me you just wish to put them to a Collection, as they are NICE!

Hard to find, and can be a bit `pricey'!

3.0 out of 5 stars Youthful wide-eyed artwork, 16 Nov 2006
B. A. Venn-lever "BeBe Ve" (Berkshire, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Manga Tarot (Cards)
Japanese comic style artwork of youthful wide-eyed charaters in a very collectable Managa style gives this deck a childlike appeal. Soft in colour, the fully pictorial Higher Arcana cards loosely reflect the tarot's traditional images. The Lower Cards show the correct number of traditional symbols or pips on each card, numbered one to ten. These represent the card's placement in each of the four suits, e.g. four cups are all you get to represent the meaning of the card the Four of Cups. The Court cards are pictorial and titled Page, Knight,Queen and King.

The slender cards are very cleverly boxed in a two tier tray which swivels open at the bottom and makes for easy storage and access. The deck of cards is suppoprted by a small token hand book explaining the barest principles of the tarot. This offers a simple interpretation for each card and shows a few basic card layouts.

A lovely deck for Manga collectors to covet but it may not offer enough or be mature enough to use as a 'working deck' if you are a professional reader. I would say that it is more suited to those in their early teenage years and those who just love to collect the tarot in its many formats.
