A little question for all you manga readers: did you ever have manga/currently have manga in your school library (if you're still in school)? If you're a school librarian, do you try and get manga for your library?

My current school has a few random volumes of series like Kamikaze, Ultra Maniac, Yotsuba, etc. Mostly shojo, with the only shonen being Orphen. I've found a few decent titles through there.

However, out of curiosity and boredom, I started going through Chicago's school library system for manga, and I am...both jealous and bewildered. Lots of manga. Pretty much every title I could think of, even stuff like Firefighter: Diago of Fire Company M! (Which had only been checked out once, I may add.)

Plus one of their high schools had High School DxD. o.o I question if some of these librarians know what they're buying, as I saw Vampire Knight, Gravitation, Death Note, and Chobits just to name a few not-quite-suitable-for-young-kids manga series listed in elementary schools.
