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 came across Ashita no Joe whilst looking for more boxing manga like Hajime no Ippo, first thing I noticed that it was almost 50 years old manga, sure I can guess most of you are put off by this and I was as well. But after finishing it, I swore to myself to never ever judge something based how old it is because this was one hella of a manga. Story: Starts off with Joe, being an orphan kid. Arriving in a random village nowhere to go and then eventuallly stirring up trouble, fighting off some of the guys as the-drunk-ex-boxer notices his talent and decides to make Joe into World Boxing...

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. The twist to this manga is that it’s about an old style Japanese cheer-leading club that is failing and the failing student always wanted to join so he uses his future knowledge to make it popular. Like I said before it’s... See full review
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
This manga has everything that will piss you off down to your very bone and will frustrate you with every next page. So in short a waste of time and I am sure some of my brain cells are dead to trying to complete this manga. So baisically a religious cult is trying to destroy japan. The cult leader is of course, a 15 year old kid. And the one who will save everything is again, another 15 year old kib. In the mean process 90 % of the good honest characters(mostly police and secrect agents) end up dying like mosquitoes. At the end except main villian, which get killed so suddenly, all of the other side... 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. It is obvious that the person that set up the game, especially if they didnt say so is... See full review
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
I thought 23 chapters was short for a single storyline, now i just read 28 chapters with 6 different story lines, one word : well. I will say the second half will contain spoilers so read at your own risk. First grouping is about a new trainee and star fighter sparring and she gets "hot" from the sparring. It's a classic hentai scene of pheromones affecting sexuality between two people on the wavelength of tsundere. The second one is about childhood friends again along the small hentai side. Thrid time is another tsundere friendship that blossoms into love. The Fourth story is about... See full review
Like I've mentioned many times before I really don't like doing a review until the series is finished, but this is one of the very few exceptions, mainly mangas/manhwa that the artist is taking a long time to update will be in these reviews. I will say the second half will contain spoilers so read at your own risk. Souta is the main protagonist in this hentai, because let's be honest this is a hentai. It actually has an ok plot and is not to bad in the story line but(in the version i read) it is heavily censored but you get the gist of what's happening. Art style isn't bad at all, but the...

This manga is discontinued, but nonetheless, it was a good manga if it was finished. The overall story was perfect, but there were times you just wish it was just too cliche or too easy into the point. It has a good storyline with a magical princess, and a bit of a sweet romance. Although this manga gave off a huge cliff hanger after it's a discontinued manga, it'll just give us readers hopes of hoping there will be someone else remake a series of it or just plain old destroying our hopes. It's worth to read, but you got to handle the huge cliffhanger the author left us.See full review
Do you like smut? Well you've come to the right place. This is one of the better ones I guess, but that's not saying much. The art is nice, the characters aren't horrible and the plot is... meh. For anyone bothered by incest you probably should avoid this, but for some reason, it doesn't feel very messed up here.See full review

This was a good read. I liked the different powers they incorporated with each character as well as the different dragons. I really wish it was continued since it did just kinda stop in the middle of a plot. Maybe there is more in the light novel, I will have to try and check it out. Overall though it was something good to read.See full review

3 Level Combination is a manhwa by one of my current favourite manhwagas, Il-Kwon Ha. And sadly, it's not really popular and also quite underrated, so I thought I'd review it to advertise a little. Story and characters The manhwa's premise is how a boy who is bullied at school meets the newest type of robot and has to take care of her. At first this gave me some serious Chobits-vibes, which didn't bode well since I really dislike that manga. But soon enough, this manhwa proved me wrong and showed that it was vastly superior. The...

"I'm curious; I can't stop thinking about it!" - Eru Chitanda A novel about classic literature club, how monotonous must it be? Koten-bu is a novel like no other I've read before, with its classy and whimsical atmosphere, peculiar plot, smooth and easy-going narrative, amazing interactions between its quirky characters, plenty of references to western works and mysteries that are so simple yet with the way they're presented they may seem like they're just as complex as the ones only Sherlock Holmes himself would be able to solve, with so many characteristics...

So, lets be frank. The first thing ANYONE thinks about the first time they hear about this is "OMG KIDDY PRONZ!!!!" and i was exactly the same way. I used to think this was just basically a way to skirt the law and deliver borderline CP to creepy AF dues. I was wrong. After recently hearing about how there was apparently a successful Kickstarter to have this brought to US shores, i couldnt ignore it. Much like when i heard about the infamous second half of Bunny Drop, i had to investigate for myself and see if what everyone said was true, or if people were blowing things way out of...

"A Girl on the Shore" First of all: this is my first review ever. I'm writing this because, after reading this piece of art, I need to share my opinion about it. This manga is simply one of the best things I've ever read. Really. The entire opera is about a painful, full of sorrow, story of something like "love". This lovelike thing, during the story, grows; It begins dirty, bleak, afwul. You'll read, you'll see things unthinkable, things that will make you say: "Eew! Gross!". But, 'cause there's a but, you'll find so much woesome beauty. Beauty that simply... See full review

Ah a nice review of Yuru Yuri, oh wait this is the cheap knock off. What can I say about Yuri Yuri. Well the art style I like but its the exact same style as Yuru Yuri. Even the Title is almost the same. The story was crap. The lines are poorly written in the english translation. In the original japanese version the dialouge is almost as bad as text talk, so for the english version to be worse is pretty bad. Characters, its the Opposite of Yuru Yuri. The characters not only have the guts to kiss eachother the first kiss happens in the 2nd chapter and it was paced so horribly that it wasn't romantic at all... See full review

As a Yuri fan I can say this is in my top 10 Yuri Manga but as a critic I can't say it doesn't have flaws. Its Art is good compared to the average manga but it ist not amazing. I'm not wowed by the art style. The Story is Amazing not the best by any stretch of the imagination but its still a must read for any Yuri fan. Now where this manga exceeds expectations is the incredibly realistic characters. I mean you can tell exactly how they feel and understand there thought process. Its hard to find manga with realistic characters but this manga has nothing but realistic characters.See full review
Trying to describe Azumanga Daioh is like trying to describe a cake to someone who has never had cake: it's kind of impossible, and strongly advised to just give them a bite - otherwise they will never believe that those random ingredients will create something that's actually good.

For those of you venturing into the manga after seeing the anime, I will say that there are a lot of key differences. For the most part, I actually enjoyed the anime more, but there was one big difference in the manga that I thought was much, much better. So, it's all about preference, really.* The story of From the New World follows a group of teenagers as they venture out beyond the border of their society. Humanity has evolved... See full review

To describe Harukaze no Snegurochka in a word: tedious. Though early Soviet Russia is an unusual setting to see in manga it is wasted on this borefest. Like most Westerners I am not overly familiar with this period of history and the narrative did little to keep me filled in on what was going on or who's who, especially considering that almost all the characters featured are based on real figures of the time. The result is a dry mess, I could barely muster enough interest to keep turning the pages and other than it being rather short what kept me going to the end was that I love this... See full review

The story is very lame and boring. There is little dialogue and poor vocabulary. the action is based on the love of the 2 teenagers but they barely see and until the fial you can't say that's love 'cuz they barely speak with each ther.

A very good full coloured mini-manga. The lazy panda is so cute that'll make you feel sorry for the people that leave him alone. The story feels likes a runaway adventure of a kid into the "jungle" that we are calling community. Some treat you with the back, some will be friendly with you but leave you after that and some will care about you and return you home. I loved the simplist art and the full couloured paged delighted my eyes.See full review
Darker than Black was one of the first anime I watched. So naturally, I was super excited for the manga. But it was nothing like what I expected and not in a good way. I didn't enjoy the first few chapters at all and the only reason I gave the story a 6/10 was because the story really picked up from when November 11 makes an appearance. The only redeeming factors in the story were the characters of Hei, Mao (he isn't there much but he was still funny) and Krang. Also the relationship between Krang and Misa was amazing. I also thought the ending was spot on specially because... See full review
It's a great one shot. A boy whose dream is to become an astronaut test the death himself and his friends are trying to bring him back. The story was cool, there were some good comic scenes. On the other hand, the story could be a little longer, but Pico showed him the entire universe which was "quite small" from what we now so there weren't many possiblities. I recommend it. Fast action, little pages and funny moments.See full review
Story The story is about two girls named Nana and Ringo who go on an adventure to search for the land of Oz. Nana has the bizzare ability to manipulate bananas while Ringo has strong legs. As their journey progresses they meet various characters and fight several battles. Basically, this is your typical shounen adventure story, but with some interesting twists (such as Nana's banana power, the hero group being all female, and the shoujo-ai). Unfortunately, while the story starts off pretty good (and has some great moments), it goes downhill during the... See full review
I have read other works of CLAMP including xxxHolic and Tsubasa Chronicle, and while I enjoyed their art-style I found many of the panels far too busy and crowded, in contrast Shirahime-syo is very traditional and minimalistic: clean; clear; and smooth as ice with elegant, sweeping lines like the snowy winds. In contrast however the stories of tragic romance were mediocre and far too short to really get invested in the characters, personally I found the first to be the best. As it is it's a quick read and worth it for the art alone.See full review
