Yes. I got into them in the late 90’s and mid 2000’s. As I mentioned before they’re Japanese comic books. Each book consists of about 5 to 6 chapters and most are full-blown series – so you normally have to wait months to a few years for a complete series. I have had some books that only have five in the series while others can range into the late 20’s to 30’s.
Manga is just like normal books they have all types of genres so there’s always something for everyone. (Horror, mystery, magical girl, romance, comedy, action, sci-fi, etc). Art styles can vary depending on the author’s though, and after reading them for so long there are a few writers that I can recognize just from their art. (Yuu Watase and Arina Tanemura)
Most book stores I have found have a small section for them depending on how popular they are in the area.
Some of my favorite guy ones would be: Code Breaker and Noragami. I might have read some more action ones but those are the two most recent for me. ^^
Favorite girl stories are: Fushigi Yuugi, Full Moon wo Sagashite, Sailor Moon, etc.

I've tried to get into several Manga/anime series, but in the end, It's all just too weird. Every time some Japanese comic book, or game catches my attention, I research it a bit, then realize It's way too foreign for my taste.

Japan has actually made some really great games, Nintendo was and is still currently based in Japan, they have made great games,
I believe the operative words here are "has" and "have".
Seriously though, I haven't touched a Nintendo game in many many years, and I don't foresee a bright future for the international audience of Nintendo if they don't start upping their game. Their last 2 consoles have lacked hardware to match the competition, and third party support for the consoles. Sure, occasionally some great classics sneak in there, but for the most part, It seems like they're just rehashing the same 2 franchises, and hoping the fans will keep wanting them.
My lack of interest in most Japanese media like Manga, Is just the cultural barrier. I'm not particularly fond of the art style, stories, mythologies and such. Most of it seems too extreme for my taste.

Unless Nintendo's next console begins to match up to Microsoft's and Sony's, I believe Nintendo will follow in SEGA's footsteps eventually, focusing only on publishing games, instead of supporting their own console. The Wii U was the first 8th generation console to be released, but the sales numbers remain lower compared to PS4 and Xbox One sales overall, even though both consoles were released much later.
