This manga is old and like they say, it was fair in its day. It didn't strike me as anything special or extraordinary because we have an abundance of manga like these today. It tells the story of Claudine, a young, intelligent woman with identity disorder how her doctor calls it. To complicate things, she can only love girls. She claims for herself to be a boy and unfortunately, her sense of identity isn't accepted by others except her neighbour Rosemarie. Rosemarie confessed to her, but was rejected. She claims to be the only one who understands Claudine's nature. During the manga, she falls in love 3... See full review
The story of Renai Shikou Shugi is just annoying. You have main character that is thrown into a situation right away without building any reason to care about her. And she meets a guy that treats her like shit, and she likes it... Honestly that just bothers me. I'm not done yet. The first arc isn't too bad. Its kind of interesting to see their relationship develop, and the struggle that they overcome, but the second arc is the same as the first. Thats what really killed it for me. This whole story feels forced, and nothing about it seems organic in any way. Art: the art is generic. Looks pretty but it... See full review
Warning this review contains spoilers- You know a manga is good emotionally when even though the ending was predictable you still felt sad at the end. Well this is one manga that manage to keep this emotional idea in a secure place despite being really predictable, but it was a good short manga. Plus it has sports (which does end up being a minor element of the manga). STORY The story is predictable, you'll probably find that everyone who reads it can telll what would happen by the 3rd chapter but it still had a solid story that was gripping to the end. You also get this feeling that even though you... See full review
There is a REASON that this manga has continued for over 20 years. The beginning is rather slow with a number of filler cases, but the further you get through this series, the closer each occurance of seeing main plotline progress is. Though in reality, all early cases are improving Mouri Kogoro's reputation and thus progressing the plot. Edogawa Conan, the shrunken alias of Kudo Shinichi, solves cases with his intelect and gadgets given to him from his inventor friend. It's a cross of Sherlock Holmes and James Bond. But that was just the set up for the story. It was made to be a... See full review
Juuni Banme no Tenshi isn't your typical sports manga. Its starts off a little slow, but gets clear in no time! ~ Story ~ The story started off a little slow, but picks up momentum over time. For a five chapter manga it does a good job of storytelling. The story was pretty predictable, but there were some moments in the manga that I would have never guessed would have happened. However, the story did a wonderful job at making me cry. The ending felt a little incomplete; so much more could have been done with it. Rating - 3/5 | Ten Scale Rating - 6/10 ~ Art ~ To me, the art was... See full review
Warning this review may contain spoilers- Now, this is one manga I never thought I would read and enjoy especially when there are heavy elements of cross-dressing (and a lot of these short cross-dressing manga don't normally please me) but this one is different. A boy who was forced to dress as a girl to get married to this prince of another country who turns out to also be cross-dressing and so on. Might not sound too interesting as I explain the first chapter but it's worth a shot.

Best Girl Becomes A Magical Girl! - The Manga, Kosaki Onodera one of the best waifus ever made gets a spin off in which she's the main character and while, unlike her, it's not the best thing ever it is a pretty enjoyable and fun to read. Story: Just like the original manga it is filled with clichés but they story always manages to be enjoyable nonetheless, the comedy is pure gold and just like every Mahou Shoujo manga, it has a fair amount of fanservice and girls kicking a whole lot of ass, while obviously maintaining the focus on the relationship between Kosaki and Raku but since the story...

This is one of my favorite manga, even though it's actually pretty strisght forward. I really enjoy manga with op mcs who just totally destroy everything in their way, but the usual problem is that I also like characters to develope. This manga does have character developement, but not in the personalities of the characters so much as their strength. To be honest though, I really enjoy their personalities so it's not really a downside. The humor is also really funny, but if you don't like it you won't like the manga, since humor is infused into pretty much everything. The arts pretty good, too.See full review
Don't believe ANYONE who says that this manga is 'good', 'worth it', 'cute' or anything like that, these are nothing but filthy lies that they are telling you, this is nothing but wish-fulfilment for women's (or gay's) rape fantasies, it has a horrible art, it is one of the poster childs of the 'yaoi hand syndrome', it has clichéd plotlines and clichéd characters, cheesy and embarassing melodramatic moments and little to no redeeming factors and before you proceed to read this review please be advised that it contains unmarked spoilers.

Natsu no Zenjitsu is one of those odd manga where you will feel terrible reading it, but it is impossible to put down. I started it, and found myself aching halfway through, and I couldn't stop. Its an intriguing story of the development of an artist and how his pain drives his painting. The hardest part about this story is that is a tragedy... sort of. The way everything intertwines makes it really difficult to avoid feeling the same feelings as the main character. Art: As always, Motoi Yoshida does a wonderful job in the art. The characters are all beautifully designed, and there are subtle... See full review
I'm literally only writing this review because I saw this manga has none and I kind of felt bad for it, but I also feel responsible to prepare you for what this manga is if you ended up here for whatever reason, like wanting more Matsuri Hino manga, expecting this to be similar to Vampire knight, etc.
I'm one of the people that dived into it only because it was Matsuri Hino's new project after Vampire knight ended and I seriously expected it to at least reach the same level of expectations, mostly because it sounded like something nice and something that I could enjoy. Well... See full review
<<In short, you can as well avoid it if you're not a big fan or really like Ace.>> My story with the Alice in the Country of Hearts series is long, I've been following Hoshino's manga from 2010 when it was initially released and I'm a big fan of the games as well, for as much as I was able to play and it's a great series with great characters and a great concept...However, I have always had an issue with Ace in the manga adaptations; I kinda dislike him. In the games, he comes out as bearable, his personality is justified and delivered quite well, despite him creeping me out for most of... See full review
<<In short: it might be one of the best Heart/Clover/Joker no kuni no Alice mangas>>
Before starting though, for those who don't know, this is actually a spin-off manga from the original Heart no kuni no Alice, so I recommend you read that one before this manga to have more context and be able to fully understand this one. Actually, I do strongly recommend to read this after the first Alice manga! So...Off you go to read that one and then come back here! Ok? Good.
Now..I must be honest, when I started this manga, I was in only for the pretty art which Mamenosuke Fujimaru... See full review
An adaptation of a horrible Light Novel, I honestly don't know what exactly I was expecting, I'm going to make things short and simple, the manga adapts the first novel within 8 chapters and like its original source it barely has anything good to point out. Story: A group of characters, a swimming club, lots of melodrama, just like nearly every CCDCT barely anything happens, but instead of girls we have... flat-chested girls? Because I'm yet to find a male character in this series. Character: Every "character" befits those generic and overused tropes, The stoic one (Haruka), The... See full review
So, overall I liked this manga. It's not the best I've read, but it's far from the worst. My main problem with it is, in part because it's so short, the manga has a tendency to tell you what happened instead of showing you. You know that her brother died, and that she's mourning him, not because you see what she felt like at the time, but because she straight out tells you how she felt. Also, at least for me, this manga didn't get me to feel that pain when something bad happens to a character. Some manga are good at that (take Koe na Kitachi, for example), and others aren't. To be fair though I'm not sure... See full review

So the basis of this manga is a bunch of romance related one shots. They all know each other, and that adds to the impact each individual story has. Most of them are sad, and the imagery is powerful enough that it despite the brevity of each scenario, it still punches right in the feels. As for the art, well Yoshida Motoi has an old fashioned style. Its generic for its time, neither good nor bad. The characters are all one dimensional, but thats what you get from a series on one-shots. This manga is driven by situation and small scenarios, not character. They work perfectly for this sort of thing. ... See full review
Komugi moves to Hokkaido and doesn’t want to draw any kind of attention. Especially like getting involved with the most popular group in school. She becomes friend with them and falls for Ookami Yuu (half wolf). The story is nice and it really makes you feel. It is somewhat similar to Fruits Basket. One thing that’s really positive here is the art. Love the art. The story is short and is only about the romance between Komugi and Ookami. There isn’t much about other characters. Would’ve loved to read about other characters. As a character, I liked Kurou Yata. You could tell why he... See full review
I really like this manga. The story is cute, and the comedy is funny and sweet. It's especially funny because, since the manga alternates perspectives between a reclusive author and his cat, you get to see what happens from different perspectives. The gap between what the human thinks is happening and what the cat thinks is happening is really enjoyable. The art is actually pretty detailed for this kind of series, which is kind of unexpected. The characters are all unique from eachother and they have good chemistry, even in the non-romantic sense of the word. Overall, I find this manga to be really cute and... See full review
The story is pretty good. It's about a guy who gets transported into an RPG -like universe along with some of his classmates. This is a pretty common set-up so far as fantasy manga with game-like worlds go, but there's twist. He's an outcast, since the world's religion worships the three heroes who will save the world, and he's the unwanted fourth hero. I also liked that he doesn't act like a good guy. (MINOR SPOILER ALERT) After he's betrayed, he doesn't just keep going and being nice to everyone like a lot of other mcs do. He actually has a personality, which unfortunetly is a bit rare in this kind of... See full review

The story to this manga is outstanding and super refreshing. If you loved the Grimm brothers' fairytales then you most likely will love this, but do not be put off by the gender bent characters because it just ties in with the all around humor of the story.See full review

At least some of this story appears in the novels, but the manga does a good job of showing the early life of Tatsuya and Miyuki in great detail. Readers might feel a little disappointed at how Miyuki is cast early in their lives as a heartless emotionless monster who treats Tatsuya as horribly as his own mother. However you will also be treated to how and why Miyuki changes her opinion of him and what might be called the 'final straw' the moment when all her prejudices are destroyed in an instant. Until it gets to that point, there is a fairly gradual build up in how Miyuki is constantly... See full review
This was a pretty good and fairly original story concept. The first manga does an excellent job to pull you in and grab your attention. Urara is one of the prettiest girls in school and cutest and would make a strong contender for one of the top ones ever. She is however more than a tad overly logical, dispassionate, distant, cerebral, and lacks a certain feminine charm like personality. Yamada is barely more than a thug though one who like Bruce Banner in Hulk, often finds himself helping people despite his abrasive personality and punk reputation. Where the manga starts to lose...

If you are gonna pursue this type of story, few concepts are better than when one like this occurs beyond the control of the character it is done to. This is partly because too often such stories are so obviously told by either bl leaning female authors or gender confused male authors who lack any sense of a good believable way in which anyone would find themselves trapped in this sort of situation. Pretty Face stands head and shoulders above nearly all such gender bender stories for that very reason. Randou has a crush on Rina but a nearly fatal traffic accident remarkably puts him into...

There seems to be this odd hatred for Stone Ocean that I really don't understand. Personally, i love this part, but it's certainly not flawless. Story: So, we can start right off with the weakest part. And i'll tell you, having the story be the worst part of the manga, is never a good thing. Though that's not to say it's bad, because it most definitely is not. It has a strong premise with an interesting location, and lots of interesting twists. Some fights really didn't hit home, and you can see araki had to change allot of his ideas while writing(note Anasui's initial appearance) which led... See full review
Spirit Circle is a rather short manga by Satoshi Mizukami, mainly known for Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer and Sengoku Youko. I haven't read Sengoku Youko yet, but Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer has a relatively big fanbase which made me pick it up about a year ago (I gave that one an 8/10). I had heard less praise for Spirit Circle and thus wasn't expecting as much going in... but one binge-read session later I found myself adding it to my short list of 5-star rated... See full review
I am guessing this must be an alternate reality version of the main manga where it perhaps takes place in a regular high school instead of a monster school. The story is not greatly different from the early part of the original manga. The president looks to me to be similar to that creature they encounter on the roof of the school when Tsukune has his first glimpse of backbone against dizzying odds. This guy actually comes off as creepier than any of the monsters in that original manga and he is human. Weird huh? I think I would rather go to the monster high school than to the... See full review
It was a decent enough story, but too short. It doesn't have enough there to fully flesh itself out as the solid story it could be. I can not say it is the most original story or concept as I have seen similar things before for example "Rosario to Vampire" the manga not the anime. The basic premise at least is simliar as are some of the details. It puts a bit of a unique spin on it by placing it in a WWII like setting in Europe but against werewolves. Many of the details about this setting are a bit sparse but at least the story puts some plausible reasoning behind... See full review
Story: The story is kind of plotless, and jumps around a bit and has a confusing ending. However, it is nice and fuzzy feeling, if you are into that sort of thing. I think that this should probably be in the shoujo category rather than josei, but whatevs. Art: Is generic, but really really well done. Just beatiful everywhere. Characters: They are all one dimensional, but refreshing compared to your normal fuzzy manga characters, because they aren't the generics. That being said, this is so short that it only has time to explore one dimension of each character. Also, some of the lines they make are... See full review
Story The story starts out somewhat similar to Trigun (as in it involves an ultra powerful dude with a large bounty on on his head). However, what starts off as a fun bounty hunter romp sudenly turns into a "Man vs. Machine" story. Also, while the setting initially seems to be the Old West, it quickly becomes apparent that there are alot of elements that don't fit in with this setting (such as dinosaurs, unicorns, and robots, to name a few). Of course, since this manga involves people with crazy super powers, I didn't expect it to be realistic anyways; but, the... See full review
Shinsekai yori is a wonderful novel and anime, but the manga is basically just pandering. The characters are wonderful as ever, the art is lovely, and the story is very interesting-when it's not filled with nudity, skimpy tight outfits, and lesbian sex scenes. This is so gratuitous and unfitting that it completely changes the tone of the manga. In the novel and anime, there are also male relationships that have an impact on the story. They're pretty much nonexistant here. Bottom line, don't read it if you don't like drawn-out unfitting lesbian sex scenes and check out the novel/anime instead.See full review
Its so close to porn. That being said the story is charming, and the plot is entirely driven by misunderstandings, which makes the situations quite funny. In short, this is funny, sexy, and you should not let your parents find out about it.See full review
The high rating comes from my love of this author's artwork. As far as her other manga are concerned this one isn't really her best, but is good nonetheless. I don't like way it seemed to try and force the reasons for the plot, but overall it was enjoyable. I think it's worth reading, if not for the art alone. Cheers!See full review
I found this after I read Crookclock which is from the same author. The story of this one is the best one the author has made. It's more thorough and has more depth. The artwork is also amazing. It's unique and doesn't have the manga factory feel to it most others have. That alone is worth seeing. The characters are all likable, but some seem to lack growth, which is fine since some characters won't grow. I really enjoyed this, and I think it's worth reading. Cheers!See full review
I really enjoyed this one. It seemed to me like a nice short story about a very cliché premise, but I found myself enjoying it more than most. The author was able to come up with a plot that managed to but heart-warming. That being said the author also seems to dislike making these longer as the story wraps up rather suddenly. The artwork is unique. It has a flow to it that is not like your typical manga, and that alone is worth seeing. I definitely think this is one that is a great manga that's worth picking up at least once. Cheers!See full review
It's an extreamly interesting premise, and it delivers. The story processes at a pretty decent clip where you have the struggle of the main character with landing in a life very different than the one he knew, and his struggle with coping. The artwork is very top-notch, and typical. There isn't anything in the way of amaizing, but the point I think is to progress the story effectively; which it did. The whole thing is about the characters rather than the plot. Not to say the plot isn't interesting. It is, but it's also somewhat cliché. In any case, I find myself wishing this were longer because... See full review
First off, Fushigi Yugi: Genbu Kaiden took place a hundred years before the events from the anime, Fushigi Yugi: The Mysterious Play, happened. Personally, it isn't really necessary to read this manga before watching the anime. There are just episodes (& OVAs) which involved some of the characters in this manga to the series. It's not really something you're gonna miss nor will it spoil you whichever you decided to dedicate your time into first. If you have seen the anime, this story is basically another school girl, just like Miaka and Yui but is the first girl transported into the book world... See full review

I read this for 20 chapters and I may come back to this manga but I felt it was very boring. The manga is about 2 3rd year students one a failure and one popular having an accident and both of them somehow travel back in time, back to 1st year. This premise has being done so many times and if you do it right it can be a wonderful and deep storey amount re-living your life.

We've long heard the oft-cynical refrain that there is nothing new under the sun, but, in the case of Kuroneko, at least, that's actually true. If you've seen Oreimo—and, let's face it, it's unlikely that you haven't, if you're interested in this book—there isn't really anything new to gain from this story: it's everything you've already seen (starting with Kirino's departure), just from Kuroneko's perspective. Which, even with the POV shift, is still 96% of everything we saw on the show, truth be told—and, fair warning, most of the book is reliant on that fact. You see... See full review

Doubt tries to be your standard scary death game manga and the suspence/mystery is enough to keep you entertained if you dont think too hard but unfortunately it is filled with plot holes and unjustified character actions and will leave you underwhelmed. ~Story~ 2/10 The biggest issue with the story is that the upon arriving in the set up death game, no goal is given to the players and they simply wonder around trying to find an exit which everyone including the characters should know is pointless.

I had read the pilot previously and it was a very touching.
Actually I am looking forward to see the movie to evaluate if it is as good as the manga.
In this manga we can know more in detail about the main characters, both perspectives.
But I have to say from this manga I was expecting another type of ending.
I found the pilot online and read it rather quickly!
It was very emotional and I wasn't prepared for the way it unfolded.
I recomend this manga, definately.
Short, sweet, and simple. It's a 4-koma about two women who seem very different from each other, one being an intelligent bookworm type, the other being a showy girly type, but are actually very similar. The story is sweet, funny, and to the point. The art is sort of what you would expect from a 4-koma, but it serves its purpose. The characters are sort of one dimensional, though they do have some depth. Overall, though, I really enjoy this manga and find it to be really adorable.See full review
