I'm familiar with the concept of educational manga. I think with clever writing and artwork, a manga can be an engaging educational aid, but when done wrong it runs into the edutainment game problem of trying to jazz up a topic players don't really care about. The only previous experience I have with them is with The Manga Guide to Statistics my mom got me while I was taking a statistics class. It wasn't all that useful by that point, since the course was more than halfway over, but for the subjects that were left it explained a few things to my visual learning mind better than the class's textbook did.
