Mars

woodenstarfish's avatar By on Dec 30, 2011

 The only reason I will not give this manga a full 10/10 is because of the basics - bad boy meets good girl... she wins over his heart and brings forth a change of heart. However, don't be too put off by the cliche that this presents. As 'Mars' progresses the story unfolds to reveal twists and turns that draw you in more than you would anticipate at first glance. Story: It is truly a complex story. It explores the dynamics of two opposite people falling for eachother, but what truly shines is how it handles personal struggle... even including the secondary and some background characters...

Yu-Gi-Oh! GX

mdchan's avatar By on Dec 29, 2011

This is, by far, ten times better than its anime counterpart.  On this, add 1 point to the Overall if Judai (Jaden) is your favorite character.  From volume 7 onward, subtract 1 point from Overall and 2 from Characters if Judai isn't your favorite. The story is a little cliche by shounen standards, but actually interesting and engaging.  There's a mysterious air about it later on that makes it even more of a page turner. The biggest difference between this and the anime? Well, there's a lot, but the first one is that Judai is using a completey different Hero deck given to him by a pro... See full review

After School Nightmare

Arisa12's avatar By on Dec 28, 2011

Alright, let me break this down for you <3

Story-

Call me stupid, but a lot of the story can be hard to follow and everything seems to be drawn out, it's a very dark manga to say the least I at first thought it might be deep.

The author seemed to be all over the place with what they wanted to happen, the ever annoying relationship between Mashiro, Kureha and Sou was something that I both liked and disliked, as there are many moments when they just seem to throw Sou into the mix for drama and the fangirls.

Now, when it comes to a lot of twists and characters, nothing is... See full review

School Days

FreddyCrab's avatar By on Dec 28, 2011

Story: Itou Makoto, a boy who has a crush on his classmate Kotonoha, enlists the help of his friend Sekai to get the girl of has dreams. But unknown to him, Sekai loves him just a much as he loves Kotonoha. This may seem like some typical love-triangle manga, but theres a reason why its been labelled one of the most violently disturbing and suprising mangas ever.  The whole of the story shows the progressions of a variation of love confessions, as well as how all the characters' feelings for each other develop- mostly love and hatred. The very end of the story, just like in the anime and the games... See full review

Bitter Virgin

FreddyCrab's avatar By on Dec 27, 2011

Story: Bitter Virgin isn't as sexualised and hentai-ish as it sounds, its actually a very respectable manga what isn't too over the top with lots of fanservice and meaningless sex like the title suggests. In Bitter Virgin a boy by the name of Daisuke accidentally finds out that his classmate Hinako has had a lot of bad things happen to her in the past- her stepfather was abusive and shes had a child as well as an abortion before because of her fathers lustful ways. The story of this was very good, but I think for it to be further improved it needed to be a few volumes longer, it seemed a little to short... See full review

daysie1234's avatar By on Dec 25, 2011

This manga threw me for a bit of a loop. I'm a romance fan, so I did finish this manga all in one day, but the plot was still missing something... Story: Kurumi, female lead, meets Hakuron, male lead, who's injured, takes him home and gives him first aid. He is so amazed at her kindess that he kidnaps her and brings her with him to Hong Kong, where he is none other than the head mafia boss of a major Hong Kong mafia syndicate. Things start to get ugly when his other lovers get jealous of Kurumi and, in my opinion, the entire story just starts to fall apart. The story gets very dark, with frequent... See full review

Unbalance x 2

ashman711's avatar By on Dec 25, 2011

Story: 8 Okay, so I’m going to totally admit that when I read the synopsis, I believed I’d be reading a comedy with more focus on the ecchi side of things. Woman loses her wallet and is promptly returned by a young man only to find he took a trivial amount of money for his reward. Woman demands he pay her back. Later young man finds out this woman is his homeroom teacher and other slightly compromising incidents ensue(seriously who wouldn't think that ecchi?) The story is pretty far from being crude or ecchi and actually has some decent drama and surprising moments, as well as the... See full review

Boys Over Flowers

kitkatcrunchy13's avatar By on Dec 24, 2011

This was a very good, and promising story, and I honestly can't recomend this to others. I can't recomend this to others because of how a disapointing ending the manga has. Don't get me wrong, I loved the whole thing, just not the ending, if you love romance, then go ahead and read it, im not tring to say not to.  While the story was great, the charectors were the best. I love the development of the charectors and the feelings it made people feel, especially me. The story shows what a girl can feel when she's in love. It also shows feelings of sadness and pain. OVERALL this story was a wonderful, and... See full review

Hikaru no Go

colourmyworld's avatar By on Dec 24, 2011

Hikaru No Go is my favourite manga. I've read it again and again and I can't get enough. I love the art style, I love the comments throughout it made by Yumi Hotta. I think it's fantastic that it's based off of a game (that I still wish to learn how to play, but haven't). The plot is just so original, and it's carried through so nicely. You would think that 23 volumes about go would be boring, but it's definitely not.  Not to mention the characters in the manga - so fantastically made.

Gentlemen's Alliance Cross

I'll come right out and say it, I'm a hopeless romantic so I love to read shojo romance stories. That said, this manga had been on my "To Read" list since 2008? I just never had time to get around to it. I enjoyed it, for the most part, but a lot of it just plain irritated me, as I will describe below. -After writing this review, I realized that it sounds like I hated this manga more than I liked it. I liked it enough to finish it four days after starting it, but that does not excuse the quality of the story- Story: Haine dedicates her life and love to a boy who drew a picture book that was...

Record of a Fallen Vampire

RedMoonShadow's avatar By on Dec 19, 2011

An absolutely amazing series. Fallen Vampire was perhaps one of the most enthralling things i've every read. The characters are all intrieguing, and they only gain further levels of depth as we explore their pasts during the series. Throughout the story it intentionally gives only half sided recounts of events, meaning that our opinions of each character is constantly in flux. When all is revealed near the end, it was one of the saddest moments i've seen in a manga. I will admit that the enemy that forces Strauss to work with Black Swan seemed a bit cliche to me, but in the end it worked. Fallen... See full review

Kotonoha no Miko to Kotodama no Mahou to

Bronia's avatar By on Dec 17, 2011

Short review for you guys. Story- 7/10 As my first GL genre manga I don't have much basis for a story. To summarize, a witch (who is also a Japanese architecture otaku) breaks into an ancient shrine where she meets a young woman (Tsumugi) who's been bound there for 10-16 years. They talk, and the witch (Letty) ends up freeing Tsumugi, who then convinces her to take care of her in the outside world. Art- 8/10 The art was fantastic and adorable. At first Tsumugi's character design baffled me because it didn't seem.. right. Still not sure what I found wrong with it, but once I got past that it was... See full review

He's sent to a special jail known as "Deadman Wonderland" (yes, we know the reason behind the strange name right off of the bat, imagine that) where prisoners are constantly putting on a show for the entertainment of the average cable viewer. Also he finds out that the collars everyone is wearing slowly poisons you, and every three days or so you need to eat antidote candy. Or you'll die. Amazing... See full review

Story: Liar Game starts off with a simple enough concept. A girl gets a package in the mail from the "Liar Game Corporation" full of 100 million yen, and finds out that she is playing against her old teacher. At the end of the month they each have to pay 100 million yen back to the LGT... but the catch is, if you can steal the other person's 100 million yen, then you get to keep the extra and the other person gets put into debt that they can't possibly ever pay back.

Hevn's avatar By on Dec 15, 2011

Finished one of the best fantasy manga's i've read so far. First the story: If I look back at it now it's really a complicated story to explain, although it's rather easy to follow and understand. In some cases there are unnecessary characters and twists, but still it is not something that distracts you from the main "adventure". A timetraveling story that keeps changing the future and present, wich strangly doesn't effect the story in a bad way. Although the subject is quite heavy (timetraveling, special abilities, saving the earth) it reads really fast. Characters: Surprisingly the... See full review

Alien Nine

squidybit's avatar By on Dec 13, 2011

I love this manga. It's got a perfectly cute premise - schoolgirls fighting aliens on roller blades - but after that it's completely different from other fighting-schoolgirl series. The characters have to deal with all sorts of unsettling biological life forms, (drawn in gorgeous creepy detail) and they are not safe from manipulation, infection and mutilation from these creatures. The scenarios are eerie and disturbing and real, and complemented perfectly by the cute, innocent art style.

Ichinensei ni Nacchattara

squidybit's avatar By on Dec 10, 2011

This manga is pretty obvious loli fanservice, but it's actually done very well. (And after a while I think the author does shift more focus onto the characters and story, but don't worry, it doesn't lose the loli.) The characters are genuine and sweet, (except for the doctor, who is gross, but she's supposed to be) and it's interesting to see what Iroi does in different situations. Iori (17-year-old boy in the body of a 7-year-old girl) spends a lot of time protecting the purity of his young classmates from the freaky doctor who is always trying to get a little too close to first-grade girls. He also has... See full review

Chibi Vampire: Airmail is a little scary manga with short stories about karin &co or other new persons. I liked it, but i think you have to read chibi vampire first then you can understand it much better. overall it's very "interesting" and a little bit scary (and bloody). if you read chibi vampire and you liked it, then you will love c.v. airmail too! my tip: read it when it's dark and scary! best time: midnight! then you will LOVE it!

Watashitachi no Tamura-kun

showstappa's avatar By on Dec 7, 2011

This one is a very short but a very sweet series. It is a very unique love triangle story and somehow it leaves you wondering while reading it who will the main character choose at the end. Although the downside of the story is that it is quite fast paced for me. By that I mean the way the characters develop their feelings for each other is quite fast. But that doesn't make the story dull since it is not focused on that. The main focus of this is who will the character choose between the two girls arount him. One who really she loved in the past or one that always wanted to be by his side.

The title and synopsis really scares a lot of people and prevents them from reading it. If you think this is one of those ecchi manga with lots of fan service then you are definitely wrong. Though it has some explicit content this one is a very serious and dramatic story that gives you a dark atmosphere as you read it. The story deals with different kinds of situations like bullying, vengeance, jealousy, falling in love, being heartbroken, friendship. It is kinda a death note type of anime where the MC plans his attacks. I'm sure you'll find the first parts weird and perverted but things will become intense... See full review

To start off this review, I will give three  general reasons as to why this series is awesome: The main character is a squid-human This series is hilarious The main character is a friggin' squid-human! The story, in my opinion is pretty good. Ika Musume decides humanity sucks, and that she is going to conquer it. That plan falls flat on it's ass, due to her breaking the wall of the first building she encounters, and she is forced to work at a beach house restaurant to repay the debt. This device has been used before in several series, but this series has the charm of having a character... See full review

This manga, illustrated and adapted by Akira Himekawa in 1998, came out in English quite a few years ago as part of the 'Viz Kids' range. There are tonnes and tonnes of Zelda manga, and nearly all of them see some form of official English translation. Since Ocarina of Time is my favourite of all the Zelda games, I picked up both volumes when Forbidden Planet was selling them for dirt cheap a few years ago. To be honest, though I wouldn't say I regretted the purchase, or was incredibly elated. They were just 'okay'. But I read them again earlier tonight and was pleasantly surprised.

Story: This manga doesn't really have much of an interesting story to it, its just 6 girls at High school telling their stories to the population.

A good thing about it was, unlike anime like Momoiro Sisters or Futari Ecchi the period puns and explicit nudity didn't seem blatant ecchi just for the pleasure of the male readers; in High School...

A very cute and light-hearted Manga that can entertain many with its creative humor, well drawn panels, and a well thought through plot. Now despite how much i like this Manga there is one thing that always gets me a little bugged on these types of Manga, and that would be that there are far to many girls to guys,(Now dont get me wrong im a 100% straight male), for in my opinion this hurts the plot by putting to much focus on a single guy and dosnt let the plot become more expanded and wild (such as having about 6-9 Inukami trainers instead of 2-4).

This manga is weird. The synopsis should have given that away, but the weirdness goes beyond merely the plot. What I find most peculiar about Ryuuguuden is its tendency to switch genres and moods every volume. The first volume is a whimsical supernatural fantasy, then the second turns into a sort of post-apocalyptic science-fiction, and by the third (final) volume, it has become a time-traveling super-powered action story, complete with light sabers. Don't get too attached to anything (and I do mean anything) in the story, because it will change. The artwork is sparse. Screentones aren't used at all, and... See full review

WARNING: Short manga, pretty long review. :P

Heavy Object is a nice little manga to read. Nice because it has got interesting (main) characters, action and an overall good-looking art. Nice, but not great, and that's because the protagonists' enemies are what one would call flat characters: they're cruel, ugly and obviously evil. No clever character design here, pretty much of a shame I think, but maybe the author did not want to make it too complicated. Anyway, I think you'll enjoy the main characters. They're human and experience a perceptible development. However... See full review

So the story turns after a few chapters from horror to a "Death Note like" thrilling duel between the mastermind Chicken George and mankind.  I don,t want to go in a detailed describtion of the story.

At first its about Mitsuki, a small 12 year old girl with throat cancer who has only a year to live and wishes for nothing more than to be a singer, but then about 15 or so chapters in it turns into a story of Mitsuki aspires to do nothing with her life but to find her first love, Eichi Sakura who moved to America two years ago.

Story: This manga is one volume, but is divided up into several one-shot stories that are sometimes related. The stories are random and there isn't really any continuity. It's not interesting to read. If one or two of these were tweaked they could be cool horror one-shots, but alas they throw in some humor and ruin that mood. Art: Nothing special. However, I'm a fan of the few horror scenes. Very creapy looking. Characters: We don't learn much about them and there is no development.

Maid Sama!

Psyche's avatar By on Nov 13, 2011

Story The story is simple, but it doesn't need to be difficult in order to be great. But when you read further, where the anime ends, the plots gets a little more difficult. But this also makes it more interesting. If you thought Misaki and Usui will now change completely and won't have those great moments since they confessed: you couldn't be more wrong. Misaki is still very shy when it comes to love and Usui still has his great actions which makes you laugh everytime. After this confession you will get to know a little bit more about Usui, who he is and what his history is. Problems are also starting to... See full review

Chu-Bra!!

Seijurou's avatar By on Nov 13, 2011

All right, I will be blunt about this. Chu-Bra!! is a boring title. It is like a kids' slice-of-life with a little ecchi. Oh, and unfunny 'comedy.' There is nothing really mature here, not story- or risque-wise. Yes, do not compare it to the brilliant Kodomo no Jikan. What we have here is a girl who has just become a middle-schooler, in class 1-A, and it turns out she is obsessed with underwear, which she wants to be happy (yes, I am talking about the underwear). She also wishes to make some friends. After she, Hayama Nayu, does, the steps (chapters) focus on the daily... See full review

Claymore

One of the best manga currently running. A wonderful story with epic battles. This is one manga that truly puts it's anime counterpart to shame. If you haven't read it, then you are missing out...

Wanted

Adonerisu's avatar By on Nov 11, 2011

Wanted was a new impression imprinted on me, I read this after I had read the first chapter of Chibi Vampire, and it made me a little confused with my emotions.  No manga has ever done that to me, let alone very few movies.  I could relate to this manga in many ways; back then in 2009 I was going through something with similar emotions and feelings.  So it was very easy for me to understand this manga. Normally, there is always that one thing I never like when reading a manga, be it a character, a place, or just something.  But I didn't have that problem while reading this one. ... See full review

The One

MageOnx's avatar By on Nov 11, 2011

INFO: This manga has over 80 chapters out on mangareader.com, and is being regularily updated. ------ I'll come back some time later to review it properly, hopefully. :P It just bugged me how some entries are really not regularily maintained here on AP, like chapter & episode number and stuff...

Skip Beat!

XACiel's avatar By on Nov 6, 2011

Skip Beat! Is a manga that I did not expect much from. The summary given did not give a very interesting inlook on the story, but once I began reading it, I couldn't stop. I'm on my fourth, (yes, fourth,) run of re-reading it, and the humor of it still makes me literally laugh and giggle at nearly every page of the adorable, quirky, hilarious spaz that Kyoko, the main character, brings into the story, as well as all the other characters. The characterization of every character in the story is amazing. Kyoko's character is so complex and yet relatable that she is quite unlike any character from an anime or... See full review

Tokyo Mew Mew a la Mode

FreddyCrab's avatar By on Nov 5, 2011

Story: When I heard there was a sequel of Tokyo Mew Mew, I was ecstatic- I soon got down to reading it in the hope that it would live up to its predecessors name and bring a whole new level of Mahou-Shoujo out onto the surface for all to see. But sadly, I was badly dissapointed... The story itself was a mildly interesting concept at first- A Mew Mew is created accidentally with an infusion of TWO animals instead of the usual one. But that, I'm sorry to say, is the only interesting point of this manga, the storyline only goes downhill till, when it gets to the end, it becomes ABYSMAL. Without exaggeration... See full review
