Kyuusen no Shima

on Apr 27, 2015

I think it's only fair to review this in two ways: The Main plot and the Omake plots, but in some ways, they overlap. And by overlap I mean titties. After the jump, boobs. Story (Main) So, it starts out great: This guy is running, he has a mask over his head, or some kind of sack with an eye hole (Eye, only one to make it even more frea-kay) and a mouth hole; screaming for someone to save him because OH SHIT He is being chased by this fine ass woman in an ox head mask! Who cuts him down as blood splatters on her fine, fine rack. And let me tell you, it is a fine rack. That pretty much sets you up for a... See full review

Amairo Islenauts

on Mar 19, 2015

Story: You know why I read this? Fanservice. What did I get? Fanservice. About 80% boobs, 20% butts, something I can't entirely approve of because who doesn't like a fine rump? Everybody loves well-rounded butts! Ass man, it's all about the ass. And it's all about the service, because this has a lot of fetish fuel, and to namedrop them all is not only spoilery but time consuming. But there is plenty with some girl on girl action. That bit alone gets it an extra point. And the actual plot? Easy: Floating island where non-humans gather and a guy goes to teach there while meeting all these fine ass honeys who... See full review

Rookies

on Feb 11, 2014

Story: In a nutshell, it's about delinquents playing baseball and their coach/teacher who talks about dreams and inspires said delinquents to stop doing delinquent behaviour and play some baseball. It really is about delinquents and baseball and those two aspects, together or separate, are 90% of the manga in it's 24 volume run. Seriously, baseball. Loads of it, and you can bet your ass it's some damn good baseball. Baseball games, like any other game in manga form, take place over a few volumes, to better display how fucking awesome it is. Here is no exception, be it length or awesomeness. The games are... See full review

Kurogane (Haruto IKEZAWA)

on Dec 24, 2013

Secret Santa 2013 Review Story: Cutting out the filler, it's about a guy who has super eyes but a weak body so he gets the help of a sexy ghost whose previous life was a swordswoman of a school of badass swordmanship, "Fist to Face Sakura Sword Style". She helps him become a kendo practicioner by using her methods and techniques and his super eyes. That's the story in a nutshell and it goes through plenty of training, angst at being too weak, all the shit that any main character who has to rise to become the top has to face, except it cuts out most of said shit and as a whole feels like that...

Region

on Nov 9, 2013

Story: Straight up, I had some real fun with this. It's an apocalypse that isn't entirely brought about by humans, but by mother nature getting fed up with humans being the top dogs and opening up a can of whoop-ass. The real nitty-gritty of it is that the environment is changing and in turn, so does the ecosystem. The ecosystem in thos case doesn't bother with the large species but with the small. Rats, for instance, beasties of those size and even smaller. It almost feels fresh in that it isn't humans that are the worst enemy here but the species that lived in fear of us or those we crushed because we're... See full review

21st Century Boys

on Nov 8, 2013

Not nearly as sublime as the uncannily sublime 20th Century Boys (2 volumes compared to 22 but shush) but a solid follow-up nonetheless on one of the most magnificent and unbelievable works in manga ever. You fall into two camps: The first one, the uncultured heathens who haven't read 20th Century Boys, and the second one, those who have walked the path of Kenji and Friend. First camp, leave this page and begin reading. Second camp, this is the grand finale of the series. It wraps up the saga of Friend, the Kenji Faction and all inbetween. As a conclusion, it does a fine job all things considering and is a... See full review

Amagami: Love Goes On!

on Sep 1, 2013

It's a sweet, adorable tale about the adorable Ai, swimmer and gal who trolls Main Guy in her arc. This is strictly for fans of her and for those who watched the show. It does her justice with some great art to boot. The quick story wouldn't appeal much to other people but if I remember correctly, it's faithful to the show and probably faithful with the length as well. I adored her and the show so this is right up my alley so once again, fans of the show and more specifically Ai, pick it up. Everybody else, watch the show instead of reading about Ai's arc. It'll be better that way and more filling.

Ai Kora

on Sep 1, 2013

Story: Ai Kora, a heartwarming tale about a guy who loves parts. I don't just mean an ass-man or a titty fiend, this is a guy with class and expectations, specific taste and a gourmet palette. He wants a specific kind of bust, eyes, legs ass neck waist etc etc. Each part needs to be a specific size and shape and this form of fetish is aptly called "Parts love". The series runs on this theme and is the absolute driving force behind his actions (Lets call him Maeda) and his need to protect and desire for said parts is also a running theme in the chapters within the series. Of course there's ecchi... See full review

Story: Sinner goes to hell, meets up with a cute demon whose his... escort through hell. Or coordinator. Leader? She guides him and helps him get rid of the debt he has for his sins through sadistic torture, mutilation and bodily harm because at the end of the day, he revives it. So lets say for an example that he, and I'm just laying down an example, he gets his nuts crushed like grapes and his dick smashed with a mace. He'll have a new johnson and pair before the day is done and thus, black comedy and titties ensue. Wait, titties? Where did titties come from? What does titties have to do with hell? Why...

See Me After Class

on Aug 6, 2013

Story: I doubt it'll continue anytime soon but what's there is story-wise, crap. Absolute crap. But the cover is a giant pair of boobs with some little chibi guy there for no reason. I mean, the mammaries are as big as the title! Obviously this is about tits, and that guy is getting some. And he does, he gets all the bitches. No rack is safe from the bitch magnet that is his immeasurable sexual appeal. And his junk. So, the plot is a lead in for tits because it's a scenario that's fit for a school porno- Think of this as a college with- It's just a set up for tits. Typical ecchi start up where the girly...

Kamisama no Iutoori (Akeji FUJIMURA)

on Jun 13, 2013

Story: I'm a fan of this kind of stuff: Survival, youngsters being tossed into "life or head explosion" situations, high stakes games, head explosions and turning mundane games into high stakes games (Totally different from "high stakes games" on it's own) or turning childhood games into horrifying nightmarish trials. And psychological breakdowns, those are always fun. The manga tackles all of that and for those who are fans of that kind of stuff, it should satisfy despite a high turnover rate, questionable plot developments and in my opinion, somewhat poor reasoning and it was...

Conveni-N

on Mar 6, 2013

Story: It's nonsensical, it's stupid, it's shamelessly perverted in it's perverted progression and it's crazy, absolutely bug nuts absurd. The progression is progress, it continues as if it's natural and it does feel natural in a way. It flows, doesn't feel disjointed or frazzled but what's in the flow is a load of crap. It's- Ugh. A convenience store, run by ****-san (No, really. Unless you want me to call him Manager) who gets hit by an 18 wheeler, on a green light, while the driver was sleeping off a booze run (Fabricated). I'll keep this brief. Guy fucks up, gets blackmailed to join the ranks of the... See full review

Mizugi no Sekai

on Mar 1, 2013

That's my face through the entire thing. Not only is it a one-shot, it's a one-shot about a world where people wear swimsuits. All the time. And this is at school, where they got out of the wet, wet outside, in their swimsuits. It is exceptional: in it's delivery, in the art, the colour, the wetness of it all, dat milk, even when writing on the board it's delicious. Considering that it's swimsuits and nothing else, I'm scoring it appropriately, with 90% of the score going to art, fanservice and swimsuits with the remaining 10% to everything else. Which is nothing.

Story: All you need to know about plot is that this guy has a heart condition and... etc etc etc... chugs down a banriku- Banrink- a drink that gradually turns his heart into a macguffin for ultimate power among oni. And he's protected by two hot oni chicks. Sorry, 10,000,000 yen and an extra year of life for his heart to be eaten at the end of that year. His delicious heart needs to mature and all. That's pretty much it for the spiffy premise. What then progresses is combat, fanservice, a bit more combat, more fanservice, mammaries, some truly dispicable content and more fanservice.

Me and the Devil Blues

on Feb 26, 2013

Story: Legend has it that if you stand at a crossroad at midnight and play your guitar, a man will come up to you and ask for it. If you give it to him, he'll tweak it and you'll play like no other. To be able to play music beyond measure, all it would take is your soul. The same legend goes for Robert Johnson, one of the most legendary bluesman in history. King of the Delta Blues, he is a bonafide legend. Me and the Devil Blues is all about him, from the start of his time with Virginia and the birth of his blues. It's like no other manga I've read and not just because it's one of the few based on the... See full review

on Feb 21, 2013

Story: I just loved this straight from the first few pages, where the main gets the taste smacked out of his mouth by a rogue tennis ball while playing voyeur on a distant third or so floor with some peeping specs. Comedic moments like these are present throughout, by means of slapstick, comedic dialogue or what have you but never consistent, as interspersed within the pages of this series is some truly heartwrenching moments, tearjerkers, heartwarming and it's a torrent of emotions. One chapter may leave you laughing, another may tug at your heart strings and convince you to read just one more chapter... See full review

Garden (Yuichi YOKOYAMA)

on Jan 10, 2013

So, there are these characters, characters as in these... characters. They go into a garden full of geometrical shapes, rife with abstract patterns, constructions and the ordinary made into something obscure and unusual while keeping in the bounds of what we see today: Trees made of cars, mechanical whozawhats in the form of a piece of nature, all sorts of jazz. If you got any of that, then give it a go. If you're like me and didn't entirely follow that then go read something that is more structured. The only way this is structured is the progression through the garden. There is no end goal and the only... See full review

on Dec 17, 2012

Story: I'm going to be writing this review in a manner that suits it and to make sure you know what I mean, here's some statistics from the first 100 chapters on two words: Rape: Used over 250 times. Fuck: Used over 250 times. You can't make this shit up. There's even a 10 rapes per second feature that shows up. And killing your mother and fucking your dad the day after, all in a song's work for DMC. Things like that, killing and rape, it makes mention of it in spades and considering it's split between Krauser and Negishi makes it even more impressive. One page has fuck 20 times on it!

"Fairy Godmother", who is more like the classical witch, complete with that awesome witch hat but minus the wart on the nose, green skin (Black and white) and all-around ugliness.

Alive!

on Nov 10, 2012

At War on Halloween MM I truly don't know where to start with this one. It wasn't outstanding, but it also wasn't bad. Pretty good for a one volume work though, which is a plus. Has a good premise and deals with inmates saved from death, isolation and comfort within said isolation. And a deal with the devil, but that's what you get when some mysterious saviour gives you a choice of death or coming with them. So, good premise and it delivers. After the introduction of the girl, things get dicey and more interesting and once the second half kicks in, it takes a turn for the odd. It's... certainly not what... See full review

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai - Tsumihoroboshi-hen

on Nov 9, 2012

This one's kinda tough to review. It's a pie slice from the Grand Higurashi Pie that goes well with the other slices, even though they have different flavours. There is a hint of flavour of the other arcs but it still has it's own distinct flavour. So, pie. It's a late bloomer in the baking cycle, considering that it's in the mid teens of the series and being Kai, here meaning Answer. Answering questions from earlier on and providing it's own. Lets say you read one or two of the arcs preluding this, that doesn't mean you should dig your fingers into the squishy innards of this one from your half-baked... See full review

Drifting Classroom

on Oct 23, 2012

Story: Survival Horror, one of my favorite genres, and this one does it justice. It's a tale about an elementary school, like the one you went to, except they deliver bread to it. But one day, it gets sent to a wasteland devoid of life. And the kids, teachers and that delivery man, are stuck there. What ensues is the usual by human standards: panic, hysteria, denial and the usual, except for a twist or two that elevates the shock and disturbing factors. The series is quite good on being disturbing, and not just because it's focusing on little kids. They're human still, and think like humans and being in a... See full review

Ouran High School Host Club

on Oct 2, 2012

I truly adore this series. Started reading it when it was still ongoing, waiting for each chapter to be released, up to it's conclusion. It's a simple premise; a girl has to crossdress as a guy to pay off a debt to a host club and while it starts as a comedy with any hints of romance played for laughs, it later on delves more into romance as feelings become clear and hearts become known. So comedy -> romance, but it does both quite well and the comedy isn't completely absent when the romance kicks in. First and foremost, Haruhi is the straight man in a world of boke, thanks to Tamaki and the Hitachiin... See full review

A Drifting Life

A Drifting Life has been at my library for lord knows how long. Sitting there, amongst all the short volumes of more known works and volumes numbering in the teens. Picked it up when it finally dawned on me that it was on my to-read list and immediately started on it when I got home. What ensued wasn't a fast-paced tour-de-force or a high intensity rollercoaster or anything that encompassed speed or particularly excitement. What it was was history, life, the old way and a realistic view on a budding mangaka. This was the age of Tezuka, as the A-P description states. It was an old era, where rental book...

I'll be honest, I laughed at this one. Might have been from some brain contagion corruption, the amount of fetishes it packs in in 20 pages or how completely eye fucking crazy it is. Most of his stuff is off the wall and has some crude sexual content that might scar the brain and some shitty art and this one has it's fair share of it, that and on par. There's no main character but it's snippits of other people and their fucked lives of getting the wrong room. It's perverse, it's twisted, it's Kago and it's quotable!

Look Me in the Eyes When You Talk

on May 12, 2012

It's decent enough, with the premise of a merciless beating and some recovery that makes the man who never looks someone in the eye unable to see anyone's eyes. It retains a bit of a creep factor with those eyeless faces but doesn't have a whole lot of suspense. I did like the aftermath of his hospital stay but the ending left me confused. As a one shot, it's worth a quick read.

Hideout

It goes from dramatic reasoning to psycho lunacy and only gets better from there. From a man's good intentions of trying to reconcile with his wife to his intent to commit murder, it starts off a tad dreary and goes to hell as things take a turn for the creepy. It's an unpleasant read, but in a good sense. In the single volume that encompasses it, we get to know enough of the main to feel like he isn't just a cog in the machine to move the plot along. He has depth and his wife is given some padding out, who is simply more than a miffed miss. We know more about how they got there instead of just a... See full review

Alternating between 4-Koma and the normal... non-4-Koma format, Hozuki-san Chi no Aneki is about a brother, Gorou, who lives with his sister, Haru, (Not related by blood; step siblings?), and has a sister complex. A huge sister complex. BIG. It's what drives most of the jokes, concerning him at least, and how the sister trolls him about it; with him ending up in compromising positions infront of his classmates and peers; him trying to prove his worth and manliness, the usual stuff. It has the requirements for a comedy about a brother/sister duo and it works. The short volume series does work in it's favor... See full review
