Okay, I haven't read much Shoujo so far but this is an ok manga. Only thing is, I wouldn't reccomend it unless you've had the birds and the bees talk from your parent/gaurdian...if you don't even know what i mean, then you probably shouldn't read it.See full review
I thought the "Darker than Black" anime was a kickass action show, so I was thrilled to find the manga (it came second, just saying). I eagerly read it, and can easily say... THEY TOTALLY EFFED UP THE ANIME! Story: There are basically two intertwining scenarios in the manga's two volumes. The first follows a young girl named Kana. Her dad is dead, but, one day, she sees him walking down the street. Kana is startled, but then is determined to find him once again. Her only lead is the name he said--"Klang." (At least, I THINK it's Klang. I don't really care.) She's strolling along... See full review
I reviewed the anime version of "Fruits Basket" a while ago, and I hate the low review I gave it. This being the first manga I continued after reading volume 1 (okay, it was actually volume 6, but shut up!), I truly love it. Here, to complement my review of the anime, is my review of the manga. Story: Honda Tohru is a goody-goody girl living on her own in the woods. After the tragic death of her mother and father, she was to live with her family. However, since she didn't want to burden them (and because their rude and inconsiderate of her feelings), she decided to make it on her own. So, she... See full review
There are some days when it'd be better to just stay in bed... so says Kazuma, an apprentice demon-hunter, on the day when he finds a strange creature in the forest. It's not a bloodthirsty monster, but a young half-human, half-dog girl. Just what type of creature is she? And why does Kazuma sees her at his school right after escaping from the encounter?See full review
STORY Despite the middling score I'm giving this, Garden is far from average. I've read a fair share of manga, but have yet to see anything else quite like it, and the atypicalness of the thing makes it difficult to shove into a tidy 10pt scale. As for the actual plot: Some characters break into a garden and explore. Granted, it's not a normal garden: instead of trees and various shrubbery there are huge, inorganic structures. But that's it. There's no drama, no mystery, no conflict beyond "how do I cross this river made of balls?" or "why is there a mountain made of glass?". Though... See full review
A short series of one-shot yaois all interconnected (except for the last chapter) Not much of a story line but still quite gripping for each chapter. The Charaters in the first two chapters were both quite similar with a uke who longs for the seme but is still quite innocent, and a seme who has felt the same way all that time. Once you get to the third chapter the character personalities change alot. Then again with the forth chapter. To me the forth chapter was a little strange because of the shota involement but it was okay. The fifith chapter, was the chapter i found to be the best. It seemed to have... See full review
I started reading Rave Master after I started reading and watching Fairy Tail. I had high expectations for it since it was another one of Hiro Mashima's works. So when I read the first 100 chapters I wasn't disappointed at all! The story is really good and it's very easy to get into it. It's very simple. Boy lives happily with his sister on an island, he meets a strange old man with a powerful weapon and he gets drawn in the old man's mission. The story is not complex at all and is really easy to understand. It is also very good and as it progresses there are some very nice... See full review
This manga is great, and I say this because I'm not into shoujo manga, but this manga captured my interess and made me want more of it. I mean, the moment when Futaba and Kou meet for the first time it's genius, there's like this group of friends who want to play "cops and robbers". Futaba and a friend of hers join them and she ends up a robber. She then runs and finds the same exact hiding spot that kou chose. And it's just sweet how a simple game can join so many good emotions into a scene. And when they meet for the second time, both of them are completely different, as stated by Futaba in...

Before Serial Experiments Lain was made into an anime series, writer Chiaki J Konaka and artist Yoshitoshi ABe both collaborated on the story itself, and ABe created a doujinshi based upon their idea. This was a short one-shot doujin, yet didn't get too complicated for newcomers to not completely understand. This doujin was Serial Experiments Lain: The Nightmare of Fabrication The concept of Serial Experiments Lain itself focuses a lot on reality and what defines it, what is God or what religion is, who we are and other things focused on identity and on communication.

Naruto is a story about a ninja who is chasing after his dream of becoming the number one guy in his village, all while keeping something extremelly dark hiden inside of him. As the story progresses Naruto (the ninja & main char), matures, and the enemies he faces become more and more evil and powerful. I really enjoy reading Naruto, this may be because it was one of the first manga I ever read or simply because I like ninjas and the supernatural, but Naruto can mean something different to everyone. Naruto is a story about believing in and following your dreams no matter what stands in your... See full review
If it isn't obvious, CLAMP seems to love their own work. The crossover manga of "Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle" and "XXXHolic" also includes plenty of past works. Story: Syaoran is good friends with the princess Sakura. However, something crazy happens and Sakura passes out. Syaoran meets the witch Ichihara Yuuko, and she tells him that Sakura has lost her memories. Yuuko will give Syaoran the power to cross worlds and collect these memories, but Sakura will forget her love for Syaoran. Syaoran, desperate, agrees.

STORY Meh, That's basically what I said after finishing it. Just the way the romance between William and Emma dragged out until the end of the 7th volume, just didn't go with me. ART When I read this I dind't feel like it was in Japan, that's what the character designs normally do for me. No I properlly felt like it was england in 18-whatever. CHARACTERS The characters felt like your average cahracters, except they were put in 19th century england. They fit their roles perfectly, but didn't go beyond expectations. OVERALL I came into this with highish expectations, but was more or less a let-down... See full review
When I began reading this manga, I loved the art. Ootsuki Miu is a great artist and one of my favorites. In this manga she focused on a more extravagant style of clothes in contrast with the businessman look. She introduced the basic plot right in the beginning, and it was a sweet, heart-melting one! I loved the main characters, their flaws and fears... Even the side characters were interesting. I don't want to spoil anything, but I'll say – you're going to rethink your life views! :)See full review
A replica of One Piece? Seems like it.
Worth reading? Yes.
Fairy Tail undertakes another fantasy setting. I have always been skeptic of fantasy anime's as most of them is always obscure, and prone to be uninteresting as the story progresses. But that mistake isnt repeated here in Fairy Tail as Mashima Hiro performs excellent on making his own fantasy world out of thin air.
In this manga, all sorts of mages roam about the world. Some of them even bond together and form a guild that takes requests from people in exchange for money, there are even such guilds that are "dark", who are... See full review
I would not recommend this manga to anyone. It is 1. Illegal, 2. Disturbing, 3. Wrong, 4. Incest. Sometimes I can overlook the incest thing but in this instance no I cannot. This manga does not even have a plot besides two little kids having sex with a man in his tweenties. I cannot say anything possitive about this manga.See full review
If you see 'pokemon' and think of Ash memes and stuff nah ur really wrong *Skip to bottom for overall Story~ The manga closely follows the games, that is great, there are no fillers and annoying things. Theres a new story for every arc in it and theres a ton of arcs, cuz theres just that many games. Um all the arcs have something to do with a Legendary Pokemon at the end, likea 'boss' sorta thing. The story is much deeper nd actually has meaning to it..! And im glad it does :D Srsly, the Pokemon concept is really pretty good and Ash abuses it...! ~Its more like that the anime is just no one...

Aha! Here we have yet another manga which falls victim to my "choose a random manga or anime and review it" strategy! Congratulations! Story: "Busou Renkin" (or however you want to spell it) is about a boy named Muto Kazuki. He is walking around one day (or whatever the hell he was doing) and is nearly killed by something. Well, actually, he IS killed, but a girl named Tsumura Tokiko gives him an artificial heart-thing and saves him. Kazuki is now able to fight, Shounen Jump style! (But that makes sense. T.T) If you have never read a shounen manga in your life, this story may sound... See full review
The epitome of sexy friendships, "Beast Master" is a short manga which has girls everywhere swooning. Story: Kubozuka Yuiko loves animals, but, unfortunately, suffers from Sakaki ("Azumanga Daioh") syndrome, so animals hate her. The persistent Yuiko won't give up, and she ends up meeting Aoi Leo. Leo is covered in blood and has feral-looking eyes... but Yuiko isn't afraid of him! Well, turns out Leo is a little like a beast, and Yuiko tames him (SPOILER ALERT XD). So, if the title didn't make it obvious, this is going to be a kind of S/M-type shoujo romance. Well, it's actually more of... See full review
Ai Kora, or more commonly refered to as Ai Kora, is a great manga to read. The main protaganist Hachibe Maeda, who has a strange fetish for different girls body parts and is a self proclaimed pervert who will protect the women whoes parts he loves. I found the manga to be hilarious, generally when one reads comedy,romance,eechi, and harem mangas they tend to get pretty stale. Ai Kora gave us a wide array of diverse and intriguing characters that formed a sense of growth throught the series. I am disappointed that it ened, but it had a good ending in the end. My one major concern was the lack... See full review
Anis Yamamoto was given a rose choker as a child by her father, telling her not to take it off under any circumstance because if she does a severe "punishment" will be given.

After chasing the little guy who bumped into her, she came across her teacher! Dun dun dun! And there she learns she is the "Rose Princess" and her knights are also students of her school!

So basically, this is another one of the hundreds and thousands of romance manga out there. I know, but, I'll give this manga a 10 out of 10 of the story. The plot doesn't have too much tragedy on it and that's what I love most about it. It is just so calm and relaxing. ART: Ahhh, A 10 out of 10 also for it is one of Kozue Chiba-sama's works. Just like the plot, it's the art is also calm and relaxing. You can also fully and clearly see the emotions each character is giving. CHARACTERS: Chihaya-kuna and Kinoshita-san. A perfect pair. Bishounen and Bishoujo. Nothing else to... See full review

Arakawa Hiromu's smash hit manga "Fullmetal Alchemist" inspired an anime series, a remake of the anime series, a few movies, and a sequel. So it should come as no surprise that this is perhaps one of the most popular anime/manga franchises of all time. Story: The story of "Fullmetal Alchemist" covers nearly every topic out there. The Elric brothers, Edward and Alphonse, are state alchemists working for the government. (Okay, that was kind of redundant.) Having lost an arm and a leg (Ed) or a whole body (Alphonse) in an attempt to resurrect their dead mother, the brothers set forth to... See full review

Go down to Slum Street and meet the Necromancer, Asutsuo Faust. It's an interesting premise and so far it has delivered. Mostly episodic, a plot has begun to emerge and I think it was worked in quite well. Each episode itself is interesting though. Probably my favorite part of the series is the art, especially the character design for Asutsuo. The art is clean and dark, with a stark black and white style. Somehow the mangaka is also able to make cuter characters cute too. Most of the characters are perhaps underdeveloped, but are all intriguing in their own way.See full review
While there is not too much of a plot and the art is mostly average, I must say this is the most hilarious manga I've ever read. Maybe other people won't have my sense of humor, but I laugh pretty much whenever I read it. The characters are wildly varied, and yet, they're all believable. I would recommend this for anyone who is looking for a fun and funny read.See full review
Deadline Summonnr is an otaku's MMO dreamworld in a 'brought-to-life' type of scenario. The first thing I noticed about this one-shot was how incredible the art was. By incredible, I mean it really is beautiful and well drawn. Both the characters and scenery are bold and detailed. For it being a one-shot, the characters seem to be pretty decent, nonetheless. As for the story, it seems like it will make a good dream scenario if this manga goes on to bigger and better things. It's definitely worth looking at, and I would read it if it came into the main works. Kudos to the mangaka, this is a well... See full review
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is the first comedy manga that I've read. While the overall story that encompasses each chapter isn't that important (a teacher that wishes for death has to teach a class with the most optimistic girl on earth), the subject seems to change from chapter to chapter. While some of the humor is hard to understand for those that aren't Japanese-born, there are helpful explanations at the end of each volume, so I laugh a lot at myself for not understanding some of the humor. While I've just started with this manga, I'm going to continue reading. I suggest you check it out the next time... See full review
Story: The story is as simple as it can get. A boy, Saiki, who seems tough and fights all the time, but is in fact a little bit of a softy, meets a girl, Lilim, under mysterious circumstances and over the course of the manga become closer and closer in a romantic relationship. The girl happens to be a succubus, which is a monster known for feeding on male humans, but has a sweet and warm natured personality. Due to either coicidenceor fate, they both have moles on similar areas of the body, which doubles the power of Saiki's energy that Lilim feeds on, and due to this Saiki... See full review
I remember starting this manga a while ago and dropping it because I'm not a fan of the gender bender type of manga. However, I picked this up again recently and realized that I was missing out on a very original and captivating story. Story: This story features a very interesting mix between shoujo themes, such as relationships and falling in love in high school, and psychological horror themes, like paranoia, dark secrets, and deep rooted hatred. Because of this, the whole entire story tends to feel surreal, like you are watching a dream. Considering the fact that one of the key plot devices is... See full review

i just finished this manga... It was so captivating, that it kept me by monitor till I read all those chapters in one day. I havent seen manga with such a deep storyline in a while. You could also say, that characters were amazingly realistic, that it took your breath. Sometimes i really speculated if its even possible to write story like that if you didnt go trough it yourself (but those are too sad and depressing thoughts). It was scary, deep, horibble, but also sweet. Bitter Virgin gave mi many conflicting feelings. Its not for ppl, that are looking for some light entertainment. You... See full review
I don't know much about reviewing profesionally but I'm going to express my opinions here.
The storyline was great, it was original. I mean, I know all stories are unique in their own sense but this idea was greatly developed and put into something that made sense and actually touched my heart. I go about watching anime and enjoying it but in reality, there's only a few that touch my heart to the core and Kobato is one of them. Certainly, it migh not be the best but it definitely is one of the best.

Based, strangely enough, on a contemporary theatre play, this four-volumes manga I discovered by pure chance immediately caught my attention with its title (I was studying the Kojiki at the time, so reading two names like “Takeru” and “Susanoh” on the same cover was enough) and with its simple but interesting “sword-and-sorcery” premise. What I found is a small, hidden pearl, a shōnen manga that doesn’t need years of serialisation and a three-digit-number of chapters to develop an intriguing fantasy-action story.

What is about us anime and manga fanatics that draws us so much into everything related to that world, like videogames, action figures, conventions, cosplaying…? And what is it about being an “otaku” that causes us to bathe in the self-glorification of our pathetic lifestyle, that makes us love it and yet be ashamed of it, that we get so friendly and open with fellow “otaku”, and that any work depicting our lifestyle becomes an instant hit?
