Azumanga Daioh Plot – Girls go to high school. Characters – Chiyo, a 10 year old genius who skipped many grades, is most likely the protagonist. Her friends, stereotypical buffoon “Osaka”, annoying and self-centered Tomo and Sakaki, an intimidating badass in appearance...

Score 8/10

I'm a Kyousuke Motomi fan. His writing is excellent, his art is spectacular and his characters are, for the most parts, phenomenal. However, Beast Master isn't the example of this. Beast Master IS pure fun. Through out the entire manga, I was having a good time. It's not inspirational, it's not...

Score 6.6/10

In an unbelievably large step up from his previous work, the horrendous manga "Rave Master", Hiro Mashima throws off the shackles of unoriginality, cliche and inconsistency to focus on what he does best; characters. You can really tell that he was holding back in Rave Master, as each...
