Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

silverroses7725's avatar By on Dec 18, 2011

I love Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt! They need to make more and a season two for the anime. It's hilarious with all the things happening in there. The plot is very good and there is some good plot twist envolved. Very well done manga *thumbs up*

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

Deadman Wonderland

Airotia's avatar By on Dec 17, 2011

Story: Starts off with a middle school kid who watches his friends all get murdered by a mysterious "Red Man." 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

Liar Game

Airotia's avatar By on Dec 16, 2011

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. So the girl, ... See full review

Psyren

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.

  What do you know about Russia? It doesn't matter. This manga will show Russia from a completely different side. From the side of violence and absurdity...do you like it? Story:  I dunno how do normal people read this shit, but if russian reads this, he will say :"wow, awesome". But still, that psycodelic thing makes you laugh pretty much. Art:    The art here fits perfectly with the characters and story, but they could do it better. Characters:  Alien scientist(octopus), Snegurochka, Stalin's matryoshka, Lenin's ghost... lolwut?

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

moeShana's avatar By on Dec 10, 2011

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!

SPOILERS AHEAD DUE TO RANTING I read the whole thing. I can't believe I read the whole thing. I had some serious issues with the series and I'm just going to toss out my biggest WTF moments as they occur to me because I don't think I can set my frustration aside long enough to write the sort of review this manga probably deserves (in someone else's opinion). Hints of some mystery about her sister - never resolved. Brought to Wonderland by Peter yet her relationship to him is almost nonexistent.  Antagonism with Blood yet HE'S the guy she loves? What? Period costumes yet she wants to work in... See full review

Omg, please read this manga. When i first saw it i was impressed. I loved the cover! But i thought Defense Devil is one of this mangas who have a pretty cool cover and it sounds interesting but then it's absolutely bad. But it isn't! This manga is one of the best i've ever read!! The story is incredible, the characters and the art is so beautiful! And there are so many details! First i couldn't belive it...  The idea behind the story is unbelievable.

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.

Onani Master Kurosawa

showstappa's avatar By on Dec 7, 2011

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

Shinryaku! Ika Musume

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

Story: Kami no Kodomo, or God's Child in English, is the story of a sociopathic serial killer. It's starts with before his birth and shows the span of his life, growing up and going to school and all of the trials he's faced with and all of the sick, twisted acts he accomplishes in his later years. The course of the story contains all manner of... icky and stomach-turning things. Defecation, consumption of said defecation, forced sexual congress, homicide... Okay, enough fancy talk. Poopin', poop eatin', rapin', and killin'. Loads of all of them. He gains a sort of cult of younger boys to please him in a... See full review

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Vinniesama's avatar By on Dec 4, 2011

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.

my first review!!!! i choose this manga as my first review since i was in charge of translating a few chapters (most noticablly chapter 105) anyway, that's enough advertising :P, let's get on with the review i thought the story at the beginning is a bit crap... since it seems like a rip off of LOST, and repeat itself quite alot. but then from chapter 100 onwards the story took a deep dive and introduced more elements of mystery, especially, the truth behind the island they stranded on. normally i would give it a 6/10, but im being a bit biased here coz i really like survival mangas. i thought the art...

High School Girls

FreddyCrab's avatar By on Nov 29, 2011

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. The majority of the jokes are period or sex related- its cheap, its simple, its been done countless times before, but nonetheless I still really, really enjoyed this and found I was pleasantly suprised, this has to be one of my top manga's ever. Its great. 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...

HevyWG's avatar By on Nov 28, 2011

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). But besides that little quirk the art was very well... See full review

Ryuuguuden

AirCommodore's avatar By on Nov 28, 2011

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

Heavy Object

gakusei's avatar By on Nov 27, 2011

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

Ranious's avatar By on Nov 27, 2011

This Manga is not what comes to your mind when you hear the titel or look at the cover. You may think of a mutated chicken whaterver killing people in the future. Well at the beginning ist seems like it's going in this direction. But Chicken George gets more and more intelligent and in a way manlike. 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.

Full Moon (Arina TANEMURA)

Story: The story of Full Moon Wo Sagashite initially starts off as one thing, then turns into another. 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. I'm not much of a fan of stories concerning singers, but this change seemed to make the first part of this story a little pointless and make Mitsuki seem a little fickle- she... See full review

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.

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

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.

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

Greetings, fellow manga readers. It's RandomRedneck, here with another manga review. For this review, I give my opinion on a manga that appears to just be straight smut at first(...it is smut, but it has its better points) but turns out to be oddly heartwarming, and... just good. Itoshi No Kana. Let us begin, shall we? STORY The story goes as such. Daikichi Amano is down on his luck. No job, no money, nothing. So, with nowhere else go, he moves into a decrepit apartment building. And wouldn't you know it, a ghost named Kana just happens to live there as well. The story usually goes one of two ways...

The story grabbed me, the jokes made me laugh, I loved the characters and the only part I didn't like was the ending- tears were almost flooding out when I'd finished reading it, it was so bittersweet.

*Review only goes up to chapter 49, the end of the Twilight of the Gods arc. Story: World leaders play mahjong with each other to settle disputes, debts, gamble and to decide the next Pope. That's the basic, bare bones plot, but it gets more ridiculous as it advances. By the time you hit Ragnarok, you think you've seen it all but Twilight of the Gods rears it's head and it just goes off into the ocean. It's silly, it's absurd and it's delightfully fun if you can get past how mad crazy this all is. It's not particularly deep nor should you expect that.

FreddyCrab's avatar By on Oct 29, 2011

Story: In a nutshell, this is the story of a girl called Haine, who ends up caught in a love triangle between two guys who look exactly the same. But its better than that, the story is a bit slow moving at the start, but it soon speeds up and improvements are made. I really can't flaw the general story of this, except for the ending, the ending was what lowered its rating because it was one of the worst results of a love triangle that I can ever imagine, and how BOTH boys can be even just satisfied with the ending for them I really don't know. I won't say HOW it ends, but Jesus, I sure didn't see it coming... See full review

Kitchen Princess

Story: At first glance this story might seem pretty simple and odd, after all when I first heard it was about a girl searching for a guy who gave her a SPOON of all things I must admit I was thinking it sounded a little silly, but as soon as I was one chapter in I was absolutely hooked, and finished this series quicker than any other- it was that good. The story itself is great, with various mini-stories concerning an array of characters all intertwining together, and with such amazing plot twists including memory loss and deaths of main characters what can even get your tears flooding out all over the...

What the... where exactly is the ending?? =.=* I've done some research online after finishing the 22nd page of chapter 40 (online), and guess what I've found... no more scanlations!! >:O If there's anything I hate, it's when the scanlators cut you short on the ending of one of your favourite manga. And it was just getting good too, with SPOILER!!-The Borgia family reunion being organized by Cesare at the Vatican to unravel his plans for further unification of Italy and the position of the family in all of that; and before the epic collision Cesare vs. Chiaro on the battlefield!!! TT^TT-SPOILER!! In... See full review

Azumanga Daioh

Story: A group of high school students from all walks of life coming together for a mere 7 hours of school on a daily basis. Thats it, thats all there is to it- yet inside that plotless scenario theres so much more. As soon as you start to read this manga you're instantly drawn in to the story, and can relate to the mindless witty stunts that go on all throughout it, reminding you of just how great high school can be, forgetting the teaching and whole main point to it.  The story starts off with, often drunk and cruel yet comedic teacher, Miss Yukari needing a way to get to work (late as usual) she...

Take Over Zone

Raylord's avatar By on Oct 26, 2011

If any of you do happent to be familiar with my review you might've realised that I have withdrawn from the mainstream anime (not to say I don't watch any more I just don't review) that I usually watch and have instead started writing reviews on the highly underrated Manga/Manhua/Manhwa. I couldn't believe that this didn't even have a rating or recommendation, with a great first story plot it has left me hanging and wanting a second one with honour. It is a series of one shots, however do not be put off each story manages to reach across the pages and paint a message that lasts in your mind for quite the... See full review

Wild Ones

JAhU's avatar By on Oct 25, 2011

This review may contain grammar and orthographic errors. I'll try to fix them later.I fixed the errors, but there still might be some of them in the text. If you see any, just let me know.   Arakure (AKA Wild Ones) was the first shoujo manga I ever read. You may wonder: how did a guy (that would be me) end up reading such manga? The answer is: the setting seemed similar to the one found in Gakusen (which I liked quite a bit), besides that, I just wanted to read something different from the usual senien and shonen stuff I read\watch. While Arakure succeed at being something new to me, I couldn't help... See full review

Not so bad. In fact pretty well done. the onlybproblem i can say is that the series drags on a little longer than it really had to. The 3 and final (so far) series was weak and unfortunately diminished the impact of the first two.   The chaacters are strong if somewhat one dimensional and though there's some development between the first and second series, the third series offers very little.   The art is the only thing that maintains high levels trhoughout.   FInal point. Good stuff, fun read, been better if it had ended sooner.
