Where should I start reading if I just finished the anime/drama?
B-E-G-I-N-N-I-N-G. The first chapter. The reason for this is because mangas and anime are NOT ALWAYS the same. Sure it might have the same character or main idea or setting, but you might have missed out on some information. If you want to be stubborn then go here: Volume 11 chapter 64 It's better if you start here and get use to the manga.
