updated their review of Ultra Cute
Score 2/10

Why would anyone want to read this manga? Really what is the point? The characters...the story...the plot...everything in this horrid of a manga is just awful. The story follows around two teenage girls named Ami and Noa. For all of their lives they have been competing with one...

updated their review of Dream Saga
Score 8/10

Dream Saga, although it begins to be a very typical Fantasy Shojo Manga, soon begins to reveal it's very unique take on a very ancient, but much respected Japanese legend. When ten year old Yuuki on her way to school is suddenly surprised when a curved shaped stone literally falls right in her...

Score 5/10

I don't expect one shot mangas to be anything extraordinary, heck I may be the most biased one shot reader on the planet. But with certain authors it is wise to maintain high expectations and Arina Tanemura is one of those authors. However Arina, whom I found to have written some of the...

Yes folks here it is. The example of everything a Shojo manga should not be. The one that if your mother finds you reading you feel instant shame. The kind that...oh never mind you get the point. Gatcha Gacha really is one of the most terrible mangas I have ever read. And this is coming...

I am a huge fan of the works of Megumi Tachikawa, from the wonderful thief "Saint Tail" to the sweeping story of "Dream Saga," Megumi Tachikawa has created some of the mangas I am most proud to of owned. So then...you begin to ask...what went wrong with this story? Well...

*Notice Because Saint Tail holds such a special place in my heart this may be one of my most biased reviews. This is one of my most favorite mangas. Period. This is the manga that started my love for collecting manga, the manga that I searched high and low for as a young child...

Okay I admit it, I used to collect terrible manga, no I used to collect cringe worthy manga. Name every generic Shojo you can think of and I probably have it hidden in my collection. But what can be expected from a nerdy third grader who just thought she was so hardcore just for owning manga?...

I am open to any type of novel. Western, Horror, Science Fiction, you name it, I have probably read a book of its type. But one thing the younger version of me was always skeptical about was reading novels based on well...TV and movies. I mean that is pretty much fanfiction. Which is mostly...

I rarely give out tens, heck most of my most beloved mangas in my collection have only received an eight or higher. Hibiki's Magic is a special exception though. It is that one rare manga that is not flawed in anyway. The problem? The writers cancelled it. What could of become a manga classic...
