Hey everyone, we’re the Crystal Hunters team, and we’re making a manga in really easy Mandarin Chinese. Four weeks ago we [released our manga](https://www.reddit.com/r/ChineseLanguage/comments/xkv69h/were_making_a_manga_in_really_easy_chinese_that/) for free in Traditional Hanzi, and due to overwhelming demand, we rushed to make a Simplified version as well! Sorry it took so long, but here it is!
About our manga:
You only need to know 79 Chinese words and 89 Hanzi to read all of the Chinese words in our 100+ page manga of monsters and magic, and there is also a free guide (in both Simplified and Traditional) to help you read the manga from knowing zero Chinese. Both the manga and the guide are free to read.
