Angel's coffin... At first i had my doubts because it sounded a little weird. but then i read it... it suprised me. even though its a short story. i loved it. sure it depends on each person's veiw but still. the peopl who made this blending so much into so little. it was amazing. well maybe i am overpraising it but maybe not. i give this a 10/10See full review
Digimon Next isn't a very entertaining manga, even for someone like me who loved the original tv series. Story: The story was simple; kids get sucked into the digital world to save it. They each have problems that they must face and overcome at some point to beat the baddies. Other than using Tamagachi-type things, the story isn't much differnt from any other digimon series. The one difference is it's not as long, so events are more rushed than in the tv shows. Art: Extremely average, some pages were too blank. Characters: Very generic. ... See full review
I just finished Gokujou Drops, and I have to say that I loved it! Very cute, funny, and romantic. Story: It wasn't a very complex, intricate story line, but it was really sweet. I really enjoyed reading it because it seemed to flow well and the relationship between Yukio-chan and Komari-chan was well described. The story itself wasn't very deep or original, but the characters and situations really capture what it means to be in love and to have friendship. Art: I liked the art, it wasn't amazing, but it was cute which seemed to go well with the story and setting. Characters: I loved the characters in... See full review
The premise just begs for some absurd crap to happen and the magic shrooms or plants did their work. It's completely bonkers in it's premise and downright ridiculous as it progresses to the sexual content. Absolute lunacy. It's ugly, crazy and a disturbing ending to launch the last firecracker. Santa doing fly-by's had me sold, swarming people with presents they don't want. It's a one shot so five minutes for the fast readers and not much lost for some whacked-out gains.See full review
okay this story, even though its short, it is sooo good. its about a girl who is terribly lonly and a guy who, litterally, falls into her life (well into her yard) and OMG so good. i wish they would of made it longer. 10/10See full review
I picked up this manga at random and I was pleasantly surprised. It's certainly not the best thing ever and it felt cheesy at times, but was quite enjoyable most of the time. Maniac Road is a manga about a hard-working otaku who opens a shop in Akichabara. It also about 3 sisters who actually own that shop. It's very fun to read, but has one major flaw: the last chapter is a total bummer... The art isn't great here: the backgrounds are usually very simple or are not there at all (there are a few exceptions with very detailed backgrounds), the characters are not very detailed (though they don't really need...

Well, the story itself was pretty basic. There weren't really many shocking twists or amazing plot ideas going on. However, it was definitely enjoyable, and there wasn't anything wrong with it, per se. I guess for me it was just a classic shounen at its finest. Art: 9/10
The art was awesome. It was always nice to look at, and I felt like it slowly changed throughout the series. If I had to say, by the end everything looked a little bit prettier. Characters: 10/10
I feel like the characters are part of what made this manga so enjoyable for me. I fell in love with Train and... See full review
Imagine if the adjective awesome was personified in the form of a man with long black hair, wearing a torn leather jacket, smoking a cigarette, and he has the world's most powerful handgun in a holster at his side. His blood is pure adrenaline. He breathes smoke. He can never die. Now forget all that, because that guy is not nearly as cool as this series. Black Lagoon is the coolest shoot-em-up series I have ever picked up. First, let's discuss the story. The story is pretty simple to understand, and has a satisfying, easy to read structure. Each story arc is excellent. They have the... See full review
I wonder how many good things can I say about xxxHolic while holding my breath. Short answer: so many that I wouldn't be able to finish due to a little conditon called asphyxiation. xxxHolic is wonderful. Just truly wonderful. I haven't read such a great manga in quite a while. First off, the story. The story is excellent, though it can be confusing at times. It takes the structure of having a main plot they introduce at first, and a later plot they only allude to at the beginning. It then takes both plots, and switches them around constantly, without warning, and....I can't think of another way to... See full review
Manhole is what happens when you mix detective stories, Japanese virus flicks, and disturbing imagery. It opens fairly dark, bleak, and weird. The story flows nicely, and doesn't hit any snags along the ways. Pretty soon after the opening, everything goes absolutely nuts, but not so much as to where you cannot understand a single thing. The art design isn't bad. On the level of gore, it has appropriately enough for the given story and context. It does have a major cringe factor, which you see quite a few times, and one scene in particular just makes my skin crawl to the nearest bottle of sanitizer. One... See full review
This manga...was interesting. To say the least. Only 9 pages long, but for something that's only 9 pages long, it managed to express the message of the manga pretty well. Basically, this manga will either be really good or really bad. If you go in expecting something normal or serious, then it'll be bad. If you go in expecting something...weird, like I did, then chances are you'll get a good laugh. It's only 9 pages, so you really have no excuse for not reading. Go now!See full review
Kamisama no Iutoori Is a fabulous story. it blended romance, supernatural, and drama so well that it turned into a well written story that makes it so you dont want to put it down. The Story: I thought this was exelent. it took me a few pages to get into it but by the time i was done with the story i was in love with this story. it really gets your emmotions going. the girl and the death god have a weird relationship but it really fit in with the plot. actually i could go on and on what i liked about this story but then i would give stuff away which we dont want that. so obviously i'll give this a...

Greetings fellow manga readers, it's RandomRedneck, once more branching into a manga review. And for this one, I tackle a manga I read because the TvTropes page said, "A very good yuri action series". What a load that was. I give you, Hakodate Youjin Buraichou Himegami(AKA Tales of the Hakodate Youjin Outlaws: Himegami.) Let us begin, shall we? STORY The story goes as such. Hijikata Hyou, a girl living in the small port town of Hakodate, is by night, the mysterious Youjin hunter, Miburo. She bears some kind of freaky mark on her back, indicating how many Youjin exist at any given time... See full review
Omg, this is the most tragic manga I had read up to date and it made me cry at the end, but I wont give it away to those who want to read it. All I have to say is TomoyoxTomoya forever and that Tomoyo is better than Nagisa. Oh god I'm crying again!See full review
Aquarion Age: juvenile Orion, as a supernatural fan, i think it is great. it captured my attension immediatly. I did take me a bit to get going and at first i wasn't sure. But sure enough in a few pages i couldn't put it down. If you like supernatural story's this is what you would like. The Story: I thought the plot and the theme was very well thought out. The action and the character's normal actions, like school, was very well balanced out. The only bad thing i have to say about it is that i think that more could of been done with it if they would of extended the story. so i will give it a 9/10 The... See full review
I bought this back when it was just being released, at the time I didn't even know this was origionally based off of an american comic. Story: The story isn't all the origional but it is amazing. It follows along the lines that you would expect but does differ slightly from the other versions of Witchblade that are floating around out there. Art: The artwork is amazing, though it is slightly on the more adult side. All in all it's some of the best manga artwork I've seen. It's right up there with Blood+. Characters: While the characters could have had much more depth to them, I can't complain. Seeing... See full review
I picked this up because it's extremely popular, and most popular manga are true to their popularity. I love shoujo manga and I eat it up, my favorites include masterpieces like Glass Mask, Hana Yori Dango and Dengeki Daisy. In those manga, stuff happens. In this manga, nothing happens. Each volume is about nothing. It's all talking, and they don't say anything interesting. The main chars are head-over-heels for each other right away so who cares how long it takes them to get together. There's no real conflict. The only mildly interesting part of this manga is the main char's friend Chizu. Her personality... See full review
If I had to describe this manga with one word it would be depressing. I say that meaning you have to watch (read) as all of the characters deal with emotions 24/7. Whether it be through past events, relationships or friendship. Most shoujo mangas I end up skimming through some part of it just because a particular situation at the time doesn't make sense to me or I could not apply it to some real situation. Speaking as though it could actually had/ve happened in real life. In this story you have a girl, Ao, asked by, Riku, to be his fake girlfriend all for the sake of saving his friendship with a guy, Kai... See full review
I liked the story because it's rare that the girl makes a lot of effort into the relationship. The worst point the the story is the ending.... what the hell is that?! I'd never seen something that cheap. They stopped arguing over a kiss and settled a long distance relationship where they sware they love to each other. We were just about to reach the romantic peak of the story and the author choosed to end it. It would have been better if there was an extra chapter with a little date, or a scene of the future where they meet on the week-end (because they study far from each other.. ) ANYTHING would have...

My take on Ame nimo Mayuwanai has left me with mixed emotions. It was a good story no doubt. Had it been a longer I believe I would've been left with the feeling of "Now I get it." There were a few questions that I had to ask myself. And still won't be able to get the answers to them simply because this was a one shot. Having an unrequited love has to be of the most heart wretching emotions anyone could experience. Getting your luck to change and being able to experience what you thought you wanted with that person? Wonderful. What could possibly run through your mind if everything you had... See full review
Story: The concept was interesting and if you like high stake games, then you probably like this. It does go by incredibly quickly and is hard to put down. I found myself finishing this in one sitting. There are some predictable moments but it's still interesting enough to contine reading and would make a nice re-read. There is quite a bit of violence but that is expected. Don't anticipate a happy ending though. Art: The characters aren't particular memorable but were well drawn for the most part. Expressions were done sufficiently. The main points the art does get is for creating the atmosphere. The cover... See full review
Uzumaki is Junji Ito's classic horror manga about a town that becomes increasingly obsessed with spirals and the effect this has on the people and the town itself.
The story follows main character Kirie, a high school girl in the small village of Kurôzu-cho. Her boyfriend Shuichi's father has recently been acting strangely, obsessively collecting anything inscribed with or in the shape of a spiral. What appears at first to be an odd curiosity soon becomes inhuman obsession, leading to events only a mastermind like Ito could conjure.

Very cute and cliché manga. ^^ I reccomend it for those who like romance, I think it's pretty cute. Wish the manga itself was a little longer. Hmmmm, normal girl, becomes model, your typical shoujo manga. One of my top faves!See full review
As much as it spooked and grossed me out, I couldn’t put it down. Some of the images will stay with you LONG after you’ve read it; I’ll never be able to see a spiral again without flinching. If you’re into horror manga, I highly recommend it.See full review
It should be pretty obvious just by the picture that this is a manga involving echhi elements. And quite a few at that. But that doesn't mean it's all just about that.
I had quite few laughs even litteraly to the point of worrying about my neighbors because of my LOL (insomnia makes me continue way past midnight, so got to keep it down...).
But there's some drama moments as well, actually also multiplying towards the end.
And even though I could already predict the end about halfway through, it does not mean it made the story any bit less fun.
Reading this manga, it should be pretty hard... See full review
The fastest growing sport in the world is solidifying itself in manga. Teppuu is an MMA student's delight. If one knows the industry it is apparent that much research as gone into this work as evidence by the many real life references to current stages for competition (I.E. subdhabi = Abu Dhabi Combat Club, G-Girl = Smack Girl or even JEWELS) and accuracy of positioning during fights/training. The story even touches on real life issuse with the mma world (I.E. lack of attention and sometimes funding female fighters recieve in comparison to male fighters and the need of some fighters to work a full...

Story: The manga revolves around a 30-year old bachelor who decides to take care of the recently found out illegitimate young child of his grandfather, after no one else in his family decides to step up to the responsibility. This follows the developing relationship between the single man Daikichi and child Rin and Daikichi understanding how to be a parent and care for a young child. The story mainly has two arcs. The first was absolutely heartwarming and beautiful, depicting death, divorce, difficult marriages, family strain, and the hardship of juggling a full-time career and caring for a child in a...

Yubisaki Milk Tea was/is one of the most unique romance stories I've ever read. A boy, tormented by his own obsession with crossdressing, and a myriad of conflicting romances and stimuli. What originally caught me with Yubisaki was the story and the art. I'm not a typical romance reader (Including Yubisaki, I have maybe 5 true romance/dramas on my bookshelf--and that's out of over 50 titles!) but the fact that it was such an off-beat type of romance caught my eye. Every relationship has it's own seediness that in some ways is disturbing but compelling. And at times the average reader may find some of... See full review

I initially didn't want to review this, but since there's so little information about it on the site I changed my mind and decided to go for a relatively short look on what is probably the most macabre Manga I've read. Story: 5/10 Story wise, Midori is comprised of a somewhat unoriginal premise: a traveling circus of freaks reminiscent of the movie from the 30's performing in front of amused visitors. An orphan named Midori is forced to join the circus as a performer and is constantly abused physically, mentally and sexually by her cruel and deformed colleagues. The story itself is a pretty good and... See full review
I started reading Detective Conan/Case Closed a while ago, and dropped it. My friend made me pick the serise back up again, and I'm really glad she did. The one things I really dislike about this manga, though it truly is necessary, is the number of cases that they have to do before they actually encounter the Black Organiztaion. It really annoys me, in my opinion the onyl chapters that really matter are the ones with the member of the BO, but the build up is also needed. So it's agravating to read the 20-30 odd cases before you see a glimspe of on of their members. Other then that I really love this manga... See full review
Umi no misaki is the best harem manga that I have read because unlike other manga this on you can't tell who the guy is going for. Also, it gets better at the right time. All you need to do is read the first five chapter, and you will be hook.See full review
Aside for the description/bio, this is a well paced sport/slice of life story. The story itself is fairly straightforward, with no real deviations and twists along the way. Unless you are looking for a story with a consistently changing plot, this one should suffice. The art is farily clear and drawn well in the "fast paced" scenes. What I mean by this is that the reader is less likely to have to "re-read" a scene to understand what chain of events had just taken place. (Some mangas require a re-examination to understand what took place). Lastly, the characters all have their own... See full review
Stright from my blog!
Every once in a while, works of art get released but are overlooked by other mainstream articles. MxO starts out great, keeps on rolling, then is a victim in a head on collision with Mahou Sensei Negima!.

As with my other reviews I just don't have time to write a full length review at the moment but I will cover the basics; its awesome. This is a slice of life manga with slap stick humor and ecchi stuff everywhere. WARNING: there is a lot of....questionably sexual themes and moments in this manga but it is the basis of all the humor. The characters' personalities work well with each other thus providing a very funny story progression.
Overall, its the funniest manga I have ever read and the story is interesting enough to keep you interested in the main characters. Lots of sexual stuff and the... See full review
Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou is a very carefree, slice of life manga like Aria (could be mistaken but I am pretty sure they are both done by the same author). It simply follows the life of a Robot as she stays the same but time and everything around her changes. She doesn't age but all her friends go older and change in both apperance and personality. It has a feeling of melancholy but is filled with happiness as she always looks forward at the positives. All the characters have a personality that sticks and works. The artwork is very well done while keeping a simplistic style.

At the moment I do not have time to write a full review but just know that you need to go read this manga. It puts the show to shame in so many ways. The character progression (the story follows the games not the show) is so well done. It is different than the show in that it can be very dark with pokemon hurting trainers and people actually dying. You really root for the good guys and hate the bad guys guts. It is very lengthy as it follows all the games releases (currently on Platinum). The art is very well done and each story arc has its unique charm. The author and artist for this manga are gods in my... See full review
Mahoraba is a manga that I stumbled upon on accident on MangaFox after hearing some good things about it from other members. I had been in a rut of reading super fighting, shonen manga and wanted a change of pace so I decided to give this a shot. The overall presentation of the manga is absolutely amazing and I soon found myself sucked into the story and unable to leave. The characters are all very likeable and are explored to show why they act the way they do. The whole cast for the most part are always together and that helps with the comedy aspect of the manga. It has a very slap-stick style humor... See full review

[Keep in mind I am a girl in my late teens, so you can keep in mind how my age and gender influences how much I enjoy (and therefore review) a manga]
Target Audience: Older teens and above (due to nudity, sexuality and violence). Is geared more towards a male audience, despite the protagonist being a young girl.

Target Audience: Older teens (due to nudity and violence). Although most people consider Inuyasha a shounen manga, it can easily be enjoyed by girls, providing that they have a tolerance for lots of action.

Story: 9/10 I started reading Case Closed back when I'm like 14 years old and now I'm on the volume 35 and ongoing reading it. The few thing that I hate about this is that Jimmy (Kudo) I'm using English names. ALWAYS get out of a tough spot by the help of others. When Racheal countlessly suspected him to be Jimmy Kudo (when he's Conan) she changes her mind when Dr. Agusa or oneelse or some accident saves him.

Story: 10/10- I just have to give it a 10 even though reading the manga from a female point of view it's sexist. None of the females have a good role and if they do have a role they're either "Stupid, easily fooled, naive" or the author just kill her off for the sake of the plot while the rest of the male characters even Matsuda is on a higher level than the females. Well a decent one is Wendy. Anyway besides that the plot was very good. The classic battle of good and evil. The plot makes anyone think what is right and what is wrong?

Ah, Dogs. A series that is currently holding a spot on my "obsessions" list. Of course, that's related more to the fandom, but you couldn't get into a fandom if you hated a series, right? So I'd like to explain why I am so in love with this series, so here we go!
Story: The story mainly focuses on two boys, Haine and Badou, but that's not to say that it's entirely about those two. As the story progresses, there are many new characters introduced, and the story always incorperates them fairly well. All three main characters get full, fleshed out back stories, particularly if you... See full review
I really like this anime because of it's unique story and setting. The manga's art in excellent. There's character development and it's an interesting gender bender. It's perverted here and there but most should be okay with it. It's one of a kind and I recommend reading it.See full review
Story: The plot revolves around Sana, a young TV star, and her situation dealing with the class bully, Akito. Despite the fact that the main characters are in middle school, the manga addresses mature topics in addition to the typical middle school problems. Suicide, mental and psychological illness, child abandonment, love, fear of separation, and various other issues are addressed quite nicely and realistically throughout the manga. Except for the unrealistically convenient and simple fixing of Akito’s relationship with his father and sister, all the problems that came after were dealt with quite... See full review

I really fell in love with this manga. I love stories that I can place myself in and actually feel the story. (Not sure if people get my drift but it's an amazing feeling) I have been to Venice, Italy years earlier and I felt like I could feel the breezes from the spring weather, feel the cold and calm air in the spring season and also the heat of summer. It felt very much realistic to me. The characters were each different yet similar in a way and the story line was quite nice. Good read all around.See full review
