I just started watching this series a few days ago and marathoned my way through it. Pretty good show but thing that stuck out the second most about it (the first being a super super hot redheaded slut maid with enough service shots to rival an anime) was this from the "Halloween, Part 1" episode was this:

She's reading Nana, which is my favorite manga. She's pretty early in as, that's volume 1, but I thought this was super cool. I might be late on it since it's called "Halloween, Part 1" and it's mid-November, but this really made my day. So much that I decided to do a creepy teen girl imitation photo:

I don't know if I should actually be happy as *spoiler alert* this girl isn't exactly well adjusted, but hey I'll give the thumbs to someone writing that she was reading a manga and there wasn't really any focus on her reading it, it was just another book that kids read.

Maybe this show was inspired by some anime/manga?

@MohsinMan99: If anything, I'd say it's directly lifted from the first and best Goosebumps book

Totally missed that, cool catch there! :) I will say as someone who has seen everything but the season finale, while Violet has issues so does everyone in the show who is actually a character.

As for airdates, yes it aired around halloween but eh. that was only 8 episodes back.

*spoilers*
Plus I would say Violet has one of the best character arcs. She's my favorite character in the show, and scenes like thus with her being a normal teenage girl add to that.

Now that is classic right there. I guess Manga is finally becoming more mainstream now?
