i love it, the story is rich with mysteries and stories about the romanov family and it excite me especially the thought of the survival of one of the imperial family anstasia romanov. the art and the characters are very good to me. i recommend it.See full review
This anime is insanely fun to watch and read, if you want more detail read it if you want action watch it. I highly suggest this to guys that like funny, awesome and interesting anime/manga like this where you have people with guns fighting fantasy themed enemies. Because seriously who wouldnt want to see a Dragon shot by a AA and Rockets? Who wouldnt want to see those silly Knights attempt to charge are base while hit with mines, artillery and snipers?See full review
Hmm. Koi Kaze is a rare treat of a manga. It pushes boundaries, but in a realistic bittersweet way. It is hard to not root for Koshiro and Nanoka. However you can feel the confliction they bare in their respective minds about their growing feelings. I have read a few incest themed manga in the past, so I feel quite confident in saying that Koi Kaze has the most plausibility out of the bunch. My only gripe is about the ending. I wished it had been developed more. I can't say anymore without spoiling it. TeheSee full review
i really liked the art in this story but the characters werent that real for me. it was kinda hard to relate to ichika or satauki and their behavoir didnt make that much sense and the little side story at the end bothered me because that guy was a jerk and hit her and how that chapter was written it felt like maybe she would stay with him.See full review
I unfortunately bought all 4 books of this series and all I can say now is, don't waste your time with these books. You might as well get the anime film. Nothing annoys me more than a cut and paste job.See full review
I don't particularly like dolls, but I thought I would give this first volume a go. It's good if you're into stories that involve relationships with dolls, but my phobia got in the way of my enjoyment. Elements of it remind me of the "baby and favourite blanket" culture that has been seen in Japan news stories, which also turned my feelings to become irritated. At least I've tried it though and I can safely say I found it far from sexy (elements of fetish are present) and far from appealing.See full review
Despite all the recommendations, I just don't care much for this book/series. Friends think I'm mad for not loving it, but quite frankly, it's another story about homosexuality for the sake of homosexuality, with the backdrop of a music industry.
First time I read it, I couldn't understand why someone would be attracted to a complete stuck up and it never got any better each time I tried to return to give it a go again.
Oh well. Never mind. It's one to sell on for me.
I think this one has got my typical response to a shojo / girl comic. It ticks a few good boxes, considering I can relate to the main character who's got the delightful name of Hanabi (which means "firework") but all the faffing around done between the characters as they continue to be be in denial about how they're feeling, annoys me frankly. It's great for what it's meant to be, but this particular shojo is just not my cup of tea.
I did enjoy reading this, as I have most of Sanami Matoh's other work, but this is definitely not my favourite. :) Matoh openly admits that the page layout isn't to her best standard and that it almost didn't make it to publication... Matoh's project does seem to be a worthwhile read despite this and if anything, my main disappointment is that this is another one off!
Definitely worth the read if you enjoyed her other work!
Don't know what else to say but I found this book too shallow to hold my interest. The logic the story runs on isn't believable, but considering it's based on (from what I gather) a fighting video game, this may be why it's so lacking.
Waste of space. Promptly dropped.
I picked this up with a fairly open mind and I wasn't disappointed. I only regret not picking it up sooner considering it near enough ticks all my boxes!See full review
Quite an incredibly sad story. I think most people won`t be able to relate to this story unless they've had at least a brush with the subject of suicide. I do not like sad stories that are too real, they tend to make me very uncomfortable and this is one of those stories. The artwork is different to what I'm used to too, but it is very beautiful. Hopefully other stories by this amazing artist will be of a happier theme.See full review
Not bad - especially considering all I could find was the second volume to start on!
Fun, light hearted read. Very enjoyable. :)
This one leaves a lot to be desired. I kept coming back to it because the concept appeals to me, but as for a story, it fails to get beyond skin-deep which in turn makes it a bit of a dull read so I have not yet got the drive to go pick up the next book. If I see book 2 in the library, I may give it a quick glimpse to see if the situation improves, but I don't think this is likely.See full review
This one didn't really keep my attention. I felt there was a lot of wandering which is an interest killer, almost as if the author themselves weren't sure where they were going with the story. The artwork is okay I suppose, but nothing spectacular.
Didn't care for it much.
Story: One Punch Man is probably one of the most hilarious, Action-Packed and amazing manga's I've read in a LONG time. It's so entertaining and different. Usually when a story starts it's more built up to where the protagonist is becoming stronger but with One Punch Man it gives this sense of what if the Protagoist is already over powered and with that you would think it would be a boring plot but it's not! :D It's actually a really interesting story of "What can you do if your too over-powered?" Characters:(Some Spoilers) Most of the characters are very dependent one Power or rankings... See full review
1. Story You might say it's cliché, yeah... kind of. The characters are forced to play, shit happens, and even more shit happens. You won't get any epic battle of wits nor gameplay like in Epicmafia - they just run around and kill, not even searching for clues. I guessed the wolf from beginning since author is baiting you whole time, while trying to do some clown twists, but the ending is so illogical that I doubt someone will get the mastermind. Still though, pretty neat, short story, not much of thinking involed and not much to write about since the author gives you everything on a... See full review
*I do not mean to undermine the existing review, I just wanted to add one of my own.* Warning - this manga has high gore content, and it is not "cleverly censored". There is a reason this is listed for having "mature content". It is pretty disturbing, but truly interesting. If you're into gore style horror and a whirlwind plot that grows more complex as more is revealed as chapters pass - Pupa is something I recommend to you! As the reader, you're introduced to the back story from the viewpoint of Utsutsu by way of adorable teddy bears in tragic scenes. You move on... See full review
First off - this is a one-shot COLLECTION of short high-stakes games. NOT two volumes following the amusement park game. -.-* Get your synopsis right! (It was split into 2 volumes for English release, I was told - it is one volume in Japan) Most of these shorts are pretty interesting, some very similar to Deadman Wonderland style, and I think they could have branched off more on those. A couple had good back-stories but of course are only 1 to 2 chapters long so you don't really get to enjoy it much. If you're looking for a quick read, it certainly gives you that. The final game was the only one I... See full review

I tried my best to make sure this review doesn't spoil anything big... which was kind of hard. Ashita Dorobou is a romance with supernatural / sci-fi elements. Story The premise is very interesting: after a huge black UFO appears, a man meets his ex-girlfriend, who mysteriously hasn't changed at all in 9 years and who seemed to shoot lasers from her fingers. I won't spoil any more of the story, because it's really best to just sit back and enjoy the ride: it's full of twists, packed with action and romance, and overall just great. The manga deals with the theme of reconnecting... See full review

Haiiii~ (~◠▽◠)~♥ Lately, it appears to me that it's easier to find a good Manhwa (korean comics) than Manga! Manhwa are usually webcomics in full color that have a less detailed art and non complex stories... at least that what I think *shrug* So this time I'm reading & reviewing a manhwa called ''Crepuscule'' and I gotta say, this name immediately got my attention because I'm familiar with the word (it means dusk/twilight in old english). I plan to review all 3 parts of the story. I have read 40 chapters so far, will update this review when I read more. STORY The... See full review
If you thought Itou Makoto was a jerk before - wait til you see him in this short series that takes place at the same time as the original series. While the manga doesn't follow Makoto, we get a much darker insight into his motivations and character, which will eliminate any pity you may have felt before for him. Quite opposite to Makoto is our actual protaganist - Yuuki, who is in a relationship turmoil of his own too - but he is a much more righteous character and is appalled at makoto's actions. The series is a similarly well-written work and a nice view of some of the background events of... See full review
Yuureitou is not finished yet, so I'm basically writing this review just because there's no synopsis nor tag. The story follows young Taichi and Tetsuo, as they try to solve the mystery of a ghost clock tower and find the hidden treasure, around 1950. Taichi is a poor NEET of the time, who can barely afford living expenses and thus is mesmerised when seemingly randomly he meets Tetsuo, who is beautiful, charming and seems to have lots of money. As one mystery is solved another is posed and the story unravels in horror, some gore and explanations that can have the reader on the edge of their sit. There... See full review
THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! The detail in the characters in all their aspects is exellent. I loved the story Line. And I am highly satisfied with the Art. This manga is quite humorous. The only thing i wish was there is romance. This is my most favourite manga i have ever read and most likely will always be. I saw the anime and fell in love with it. I even produced my own fanfiction about OgaXKunieda. I wish this series never ended. I want them to make a season 2 of the anime and I know that won't happen but there will... See full review
When I first started reading Yankee-kun it grapped me right away with the characters personalities. With the main group of characters able to always complement the each other. The story was entertaining with each arc and I ended up finishing the series in a couple of days. The ending was the only disappointing part of it. And that is for you to find out. Wish there was more of the series to read since I enjoyed it greatly.See full review
Tokyo ghoul is an amazing manga! The story line is very captivating, lots of plot twist and foreshadowing. Its very interesting psychologically. I have read the whole story multiple times and I keep discovering new hints. the one really big down side about Tokyo ghoul is the ending, it broke my hart in to a million pieces. But the story is so good it’s definitely worth it. The story took me in immediately, during the middle part there are some chapters that might seem a little on the slow side but once you have read them you will start to appreciate it and later see more depthSee full review

Once I finished the anime that left on a total cliffhanger (didn't even feel like an ending because it wasn't). I had to find out what happened, I was not disappointed in the least. It's cute, it's interesting, and it ends very very well on a very clever note. I had an ache in my heart when it was over. *SPOILER ALERT* I am so happy/relieved/refreshed to find a harem anime that ACTUALLY picked a girl and stuck with her. I have been watching/reading way too many romance "blue balls" anime/manga where they never commit to a couple.See full review
I'm a fan of Rumiko Takahashi in general, so I've read most of her work, my favorite being Inuyasha. So I started reading this expecting a whole new journey, and I'm not disappointed. But I'm not over the moon either. The story is new and interesting, a few parallels with Bleach that I thought funny. It's shounen type, so there isn't necessarily one set storyline, but multiple small stories put together, again almost like Bleach or Naruto. It does get repetitive, but the character personalities keep me interested. They may look similar to a lot of Inuyasha characters (almost turned me off from... See full review
I'm going to start off by saying this, gangsta. has really taken me off guard, though in a good way! Before I stumbled on this gem, I wondered "why can't I find any characters that aren't wholly good? Some that maybe do rotten things, but aren't necessarily rotten people?". Then I started reading, and I was hooked from the characters mostly. The only reason I give the characters 8/10 is because they are more mature adults, and I don't think they'll be changing much anytime soon, and I'm big on character development. They all seem, at least to me, set in their ways. Other than that, I love... See full review
This manga is only 7 pages long. And it's effing weird. Story A mysterious figure comes across a girl whose arm is stuck in a wall and being gnawed on by some demons(?). If I went any further, I would have spoiled the entire manga, as it's not very eventful. Art The art is unique... It doesn't look very much like any manga I've ever seen. I honestly expected some mindbendingly gruesome and realistic art because of the list I found this manga on; it's pretty tame and visually pleasant for a psychological/surreal horror manga. Characters There are two characters. They do not develop other the course... See full review

It is an good story that loosely follows the plot of Dragon's Dogma game that was released during the same time as Skyrim. For those who never heard of it: it is a not to bad game with good combat dynamic's IE: Able to climb large foes to deal damage in hard to reach places. Another nice thing about it is the Pawn system that is sort of A.I. and the amount of Vocations (classes for those who don't understand) too is nice: Strider, fighter, mage are the 3 basic vocations. Warrior, ranger, and sorceror are the advanced vocations, then there is 3 more vocations known as hybred vocations that combine 2 basic... See full review
Shibata is a 29 year old pushover that has simply rotten taste in men. Her current boyfriend was just using her as a meal ticket and for freebies. I really like her even though she is clueless.

All the characters are great in this story so far, and I really find myself rooting for the MCs to get together at the end. They just seem to compliment each other and I don't see them happy with anyone else. This manga is... See full review
Seriously, Missions of Love is one of the few mangas that really made me obsessed. I really like it. Plot It's about a girl called Yukina who is secretly a popular cellphone author, Yupina. Her fans want more romance in her stories, so she blackmails the school's most popular boy, Kitami.See full review
I was suprised with the series, the plot is pretty original and strong. Unfortunately it didn't keep my interest, overall the same events will happen, they encounter a gang and will beat them. It is inevitable in series like these where twists that immensely change it are hard to create. I read everything released but I'm not going to continue. I don't think it is a series that can create new and better arcs in future chapters, again the repetitive nature will catch up and is apparent in the first 70 chapters.See full review
Hungry Joker is one of the many manga that showed enough potential, got a place in Weekly Shounen Jump, and then failed so hard that it got axed. So don't waste your time on it if you only want to read stories that have/ will have a decent ending. If you're wondering why I decided to read it then: at the time, I had gotten interested in Black Clover's premise, but because there were so few chapters out I decided to try the other work by the same author instead... honestly, that was a mistake, because this series felt like a waste...

So anyway a bit of background in the story of this webcomic, we have Bell who was brought up as the Cinderella pretty much in a family where she was bullied and tortured.

Each page has its own punch line and together they form a greater storyline. Art Simple but... See full review

One of the best horror stories I've read. Story: Stories are short but still pretty good. Some of them doesn't have end and that's pity.
