The Manga Tarot is from Taiwanese artist Selena Lin who specialises in shojo, a romantic style of comic especially for teenage girls. Her 78 cards are pretty and filled with cute, big-eyed characters. Packaged as a set in a hinged, rigid cardboard box with a 64-page book.

Manga Tarot review by Kate Hill
Selena Lin is a Taiwanese cartoon illustrator with work featured in teenage comic story-books, magazines, and calendars, who especially loves the romantic style of ‘shojo’ that is especially for teenage girls – just like the Manga Tarot.
The art of the Manga Tarot, published by Connections, is typical line-drawn cartoonish anime. The major arcana and court cards featuring characters with pale skin, huge eyes and an elfin appearance, dressed in flowing robes and costumes, and inhabiting a dreamy, sparkling and romantic world. The minor arcana cards stick to the same theme and colour palette, though sadly they are undecorated pips rather than illustrated tarot scenes.
