Ubau Mono Ubawareru Mono (Light Novel)

on

The last few years, summoning/reincarnation plot has become cliche.  For some reason or another, I like that type of setting.  Some title do it better than other, maybe because of world building, MC objective or the characters in the story.  The reason I am enjoying this LN, is because of the pace and the MC.  The pace is faster than Isekai Mahou wa Okureteru! and Maken no Daydreamer.  The MC went through terrible abuse in his past life and continued in his present life, until he became slightly stronger.  However, he still kind to those who are kind to him, but what I like...

Isekai Mahou wa Okureteru! (Light Novel)

on

The story has potential, with the characters, but their is an excess of internal dialogue between some of the characters.  Their is not much speaking between the characters, only thoughts.  I like the MC, but he is narrating almost everything (Re:Monster does it well).  I am skipping most of the side comments of the narration and it does not seem that I am missing much.  Also the MC is contradictory, because he says that he like researching magic, but looks down on the magic in the world he was summoned and has not tried to research it, yet.

As far as titles set in the Middle Ages (or whatever fantasy settings that mirror that period) are, there's no denying that the bar for many has been set incredibly high. Such a time period of course embodies the idea "life sure ain't fair, the fuck are you gonna do about it". These stories involving folks that have to flounder about to in order to overcome harsh environments and extreme oppression tend to offer plenty of room for character arcs paved in blood and guts. Stories like Vinland Saga, Berserk, Vagabond, etc all easily satisfy those looking for well-drawn violence and well-handled... See full review

Last Game

The type of romance and twisted love stories kept me reading it. The story was cute and so are the characters. I feel bad for Yanagi. WHY won't they just confess???The story was great and and In my opinion,the art was good.I  think it is for people who like long stories. My most favorite part is when their classmates thought they we're dating but Yanagi a d Koujo said they weren't during the class reuninion. LoL

GOSH~cry~ the end is so sad but it was also a great ending. I don't usually give 10/10 scores but It was really good. So-quit the drama- so basically It is about a group of people thought we're more like angels the boy actually helped her(main characters) and she thought of him as so kind though it all starts when he asked her to be a take girlfriend to entertain ppl though they liked each other and in the end it leads the girl to part and--....(not spoiling..too good to be spoiled)

Happy Cafe

I absolutely adore this manga! I enjoyed reading this so much, that I'm sure I'll be reading it again in the future. The characters had me laughing out loud, and I have no idea how many times I squealed because of cuteness.  I feel like if you're looking for something more serious, this isn't for you. While there are some "Oh shit." moments, there definitely isn't a whole lot of intensity. Basically, I would say this an enjoyable, reaxing read. :) I will say, I didn't particularly like the ending. I kind of wanted a little more time to accept what was going on, but everything was kinda... See full review

Love in the Mask

WARNING, FEW SPOILERS Although, the release was a bit out of order, meaning it wasn't organized chapters. But it was still understandable to know what's going on in the story. The story is a gang love story with a bit of twist and emotional sadness. Despite the fact that I did not like how Bi-rak died and leaving Hyu-bin all with fake memories until the end. The story itself was good, it's just one of those type of manga that you only read once after experiencing the loss or tragic of a dead person. If you like gender bender, gangs, and tragic romance; I would suggest this manga because although the... See full review

I already read this but--I put the story as 9 because it was actually good but I wish they added more to it and the boy seems like to be playing with the girl at the same time and loves her I guess. I liked how it ended but I don't know if she answered to him or just thought of it to her own thoughts.

Bleach

I love Bleach. I think it has some great story arcs, awesome characters and some cool action scenes. However, amongst that is the 9 volume wait for the main plot to start (athough it's well worth the wait), some seriously underdeveloped characters and that stupid but necessary story arc in volumes 49-54. However, if you are willing to push though all that annoying stuff, Kubo has created a complex, interesting plot line that is so well thought out there are characters that appear to set up their next apperance 30 volumes later. There are many plot twists even until the end. There are also some very... See full review

Actually,I hated manga and only liked watching animes. THOUGH,.the anime didn't finish the story so I read the manga. I turned out really good but I put story 9/10 instead of 10/10 because in the end they saved the future though... *cry* they had to go to the past again and forget everything. Though only when they met Jon-kun they forgot everything. AND they ended the manga with Jin-kun on TV and them almost remembering what their memories we're.

New Life Project

This is basically just a gag manga, with a bunch of short, funny stories. They aren't all at the same level of comedy, but I still think it's a nice time-waster for when you're bored and don't know what else to do.  It seems obvious that I can't can't really rate the story in this kind of manhwa (except based on comedy), which means the next thing would be the characters. And well, most of them only get one appearance, but those few who appear multiple times are actually quite memorable: be it Mr. Hwa, the flower-man, or the old man who wants to be a female flight attendant, or the female flight...

Tokyo Ghoul

This is a personal review, not an objective one. This manga just didn't click with me like I wanted it to and I honestly don't really get the hype around it. In fact I can make many, many parallels to Deadman Wonderland, which I personally feel pulls off the "depraved, crapsack world" full of tragedy, special abilities, persecution, sociopathic "heroes", and insane villains with a bit more finesse and feeling. I got a similar feel with Ajin, in that it seemed promising but way too much bureaucracy was thrown in. I honestly did not give a crap about the Ghoul Squads (or whatever they... See full review

UQ Holder!

Where to start? I picked this manga up about a year ago, when CR first added manga. I only had about 30 chapters up then, and it was one of maybe 15 other series. This one is one of two that I still read, and one of one, that I would trade my soul to get animated. This isn't a very official review, and I'm probably exaggerating beyond normal human capacity, but in my honest opinion, this manga should be as popular as Naruto. The main storyline is actually different for once, no "I'll be the Hokage", or "I'll be the king of the pirates" In fact, I really have no good idea where the story... See full review

Shinka no Mi (Light Novel)

Story-  Overlooking a couple of things, the story was doing pretty well though the early chapters.  However, once the mc left where he was original living, the story became ridiculously stupid.  I could not believe how much the story change in just a few chapters.  Maybe it was supposed to add some humor, with it was over done.  After those chapters, I had to drop the series.

Characters-  I actually liked the main character at the beginning.  His life has been crappy and he was still positive and kept a sense of humor.  I figured spending months in the forest... See full review

So it's actually really embarressing to admit you're reading this because it's almost a full out hentai manga series and the only reason it's not is because it's you know... blocked from sight but otherwise there's no doubt in anyone's mind what is happening with the characters. hehee.  So I found this manga while I was having my "alone time" so I was literally asking for it XD but instead of flipping through all the main story line and getting to the good stuff I actually- for the first time ever- read it from page one and on.  The story is about this nerdy shy guy who really wants a...

Dendrobates

This manga is one of my favorites. As time went on and I continued reading, it became one that I liked so much that I couldn't wait for the weekly releases to come out. The only real issue was at the beginning of the manga it seemed that Dendrobates comprised of many seperate yet similar stories that had very little to do with eachother, other than The Police Accountant Sengawa. However, by the end you will completely understand how it ties in and pushes the story forward to it's conclusion... which was exceptional by the way.

SPOILER ALERT, DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE MANGA. So, Half & Half, the story about two people who die. Doesn't sound very interesting does it? WRONG! In all honesty, I was looking for a manga with a dark story, yet romance. I found exactly what I was looking for.  The beginning of the story will have you fooled, making you think Yuuki was trying to commit suicide by jumping of a roof. Which results in her falling on top of a guy, who died together with her.  Now, God plays a role in this manga, giving them seven more days to live and having them decide who will live and who will...

Manga Messiah

An intrersting take on the story of Jesus Christ. I bought this manga for a low price. The manga tells the famliar story of Jesus Christ from birth to his resurection. Although the manga was published in 2006 the artstyle is similar to that of the 90s. The character designs range from natural to Judas having red hair and an angel with purple hair. Other than these small things, this is an intresting way to adapt bible stories into manga.

Cross Game

Cross Game is a 17 volume manga than ran in Weekly Shonen Sunday from 2005-2010. It advertises itself as a sports manga, but the second volume 1 ends, you realize that truly, it’s a psychological Slice of Life romance that happens to have baseball in it.

I wouldn’t say I’m a sports anime professional. I’ve seen Haikyuu, 15 episodes of Hajime no Ippo and half of Shokugeki no Souma. All of which were fantastic, by the way. But they all had one thing in common. They existed solely to hype up the audience. Cross Game, on the other hand, deliberately undercuts the hype of some... See full review

Since I wrote a review some place else, I will just copy and paste it here. For some reason, this manga caught my attention. I was not expecting anything great, but I was also not expecting it to be this bad.

Story: The mc loses wakes up in a strangers house to find out that he has become a manservant and has no recollection of his memories. I guess it was supposed to be a comedy series, but I did not find anything funny. I used to like wrestling, but the early fights was just ridiculous, it is as they were forcing the comedy on the reader. It is too over the top with some of the fighting... See full review

Love Sick

Okay, so this is my first review. I finished this manga a few weeks ago.   I find the story very much like a dark version of Ouran. If everyone in Ouran was evil, or at least wicked, this is how it would be like.  Out of the main characters, Shiki seems to develope the most, while being obsessed with revenge she connects with each of the 4 guys (surprise, surprise!) especially Haru, who is one of the very few good characters. Relatively good, anyway. The main characters are each strong in their own way, their behaviour and interactions between them is in fact the only carying point in the manga... See full review

A truly heartfelt story about bullying and redemption for ones past mistakes. A Silent Voice is lovable and cringeworthy, creating a narrative that feels very real, very relatable, very human. Without spoiling anything I will say its a story with fun, heartwarming highs and heartwrenchingly lows. Theres no heroes, villains or anything. Just kids. People. Who are complicated and flawed, yet come together to form a fantastic narrative with a good message that bullying can be, and frequently is harmful to the victim. Or despite ones past actions, anyone can redeem themselves if they commit to it, and own up... See full review

GENRES: 9 This is obviously a martial arts and fantasy genre if you guys are into that. In terms of its genre of Fantasy (which is basically magic), I've read dozens of light novels and fantasy books and it has some of the most interesting magic I've read, and the mystery of the magic is also intriguing, the magic system is very comprehensive and keeps me hooked, it has a vast array of different magical items I guess and more than I think I've ever read which makes it even more interesting. So in terms of the genre of fantasy purely based on magic, I'd highly recommend it as its magic system is... See full review

Okay this is a short Harlequin. Keep in mind that these types are taken from books and compacted into short manga so a lot is left out of the original story. This one in particular mashes the whole story into 65 pages. However, given what I was able to see about this manga I would never touch the full novel. If I had more than a digital copy of this I would burn it. It's that bad. How this could be considered romance is beyond me... I guess getting married and spouting a few words is enough to constitute romance in some peoples view but in my eyes there are some big no no's that you never do in a romance... See full review

The Voices of a Distant Star

The manga for The Voices of a Distant Star is an improvement over the film in some ways.  The characters and their longing for each other is expressed more clearly in manga form and the bland character designs of the original have been improved on by Sahara's art.  The shadows and shading give a sense of melancholy.   Whereas the original had virtually no dialogue and a cast of (as far as I remember) 2 characters, the manga expands on the basic plot quite a bit with new characters and conflicts.  The overall character arcs of Noboru and Mikako end up resembling an alternate universe's 5...

I watched the anime of Soul Eater about a year ago. I enjoyed it a lot, and thought it was a very solid, above-average, but slightly flawed anime series. I heard from one of my friends later that the manga source material of the series takes a much different turn about halfway through that ends with a much more satisfying ending, which interested me since I sort of felt the ending of the anime was a bit lackluster. So I read it and I am very glad I did. There is so much more depth in manga, so many loose ends (I won't spoil anything) that kind of get ignored in the anime are tied quite beautifully here...

The manga is still ongoing, but I had to drop it after the plot-line started getting ridiculous after chapter 19.  The premise of the story caught my attention, but so far by inferring it seems like the male protagonist will not fullfil his revenge and the opposite might happen.  I may be wrong, but the worst part is the intrucduction of the new male character and the actions of the minor characters.  Actually, both main characters have crappy personalities.

There is nothing about the art that is extraordinary to the point that it would force me to continue to follow it. The art is definately not bad.
