Youthful wide-eyed artwork,
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.
