Inu wo Kau

on May 13, 2016

Story The first four chapters of this manga are domestic slice of life stories that are connected to each other.  The first chapter deals with a couple losing their beloved dog (and if you ever owned a dog or any other kind of pet for that matter, you will cry).  The second chapter takes place a year later when the same couple takes in a skittish cat.  They continue to bond with the cat (as well as several other things I won't mention) in chapter 3, and in chapter 4, the couple's niece in thrown into the mix.  The four chapters are nicely written and will appeal to animal...

Regatta: Kimi to Ita Eien

on Apr 24, 2016

Story Regatta is the story of a young man whose goal is to compete in compettitive rowing in the Olympics.  This goal was put on hold after the tragic death of his teamate, but he eventually regains the drive to reach for their dream.  There is also a nice well written romantic side-plot.  The story over-all is well written and mostly well paced.  My only criticism with the story is that the ending felt a little abrupt to me.  Basically, I feel like the events of the last chapter should've been spread out over two or three chapters instead of being crammed into...

La Pomme Prisonniere

on Apr 28, 2016

Story This manga is basically about the daily life of a crazy, frequently naked woman and her cat.  To be honest, nothing much happens.  The woman's antics are a bit amusing and this manga does get some points for uniqueness, but there is very little text and not much of a plot. Art The art is for the most part very detailed and quite nice looking.  However, it loses a few points due to the fact that the female characters look a bit too much alike. Characters Due to the fact that there is hardly any dialogue and barely any plot, there is... See full review

Houkago x Ponytail

on May 1, 2016

Story This manga is the story of a girl who falls in love with a mangaka.  While the plot is nothing particularly groudbreaking, I did find it to be cute, funny, and enjoyable.  Though there are several shoujo cliches, this manga does them well and even seems to be self aware of it. Art The art isn't great, but it isn't terrible either.  It does it's job, but not much more.  The character designs are fine, but the lack of backgrounds and the occasional use of stick figures (though to be fair, those were comedy relief scenes) hurts it. Characters I... See full review
