Trending: MangaHolic’s Reading Lounge in Cebu City

Even with the rising popularity of streaming TV and movie shows like Netflix and other foreign influences like K-Pop, many are still fond of watching anime and reading manga. In fact, I know some Cebuano friends who wish there would be a manga-theme cafe in Cebu or at least a library dedicated to anime and manga.

If you are one of these fans, you are in for a perfect treat! MangaHolic’s Reading Lounge has finally opened its doors at Gaisano Country Mall – Banilad Cebu City, serving guests daily from 9AM to 10PM.

As its name suggests, the MangaHolic’s Reading Lounge is a dedicated library space where guests can take a quick (or long) break from reality and curl up with a favorite manga—or a stack of manga. Definitely a haven for anime and manga lovers, this newly opened lounge offers READ ALL YOU CAN Mangas on an hourly basis — for as low as ₱100 per hour.
