Faster Than a Kiss

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

let me start by saying i hate teacher/student relationships. however this made me a fan. this alone changed my views on the genre. i loved this manga. i love that they dont rush into love but fall into it slowly and sweetly. the family dynamic between sister and little brother and how wonderfully the teacher takes them on. the family dynamic is the main reason i love this. blood doesnt make family realtionships do.

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

the heroine is amazing. she alone makes the manga worth the read. even if the story sucked, which it doesnt. anyway she isnt weak and simpering like others she stands up for what she believes in and even with the baddys of the world after her she doesnt take any crap from them. the story draws you in and though the rest of the characters are what you expect the difference in the heroine makes it not the usual weak story. dark secrets and long lost loves make for a really good read.

I Am Here

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

deep, conflicting, sad, passionate, and encouraging. i like how this manga portrays the negative and positive. not everyone is pretty or popular or even stands out. the main character in this manga is unnoticed, ignored, and as a result is severly depressed. her life takes a turn because of her online blogging. through hard work and determination things change for her. its an inspiring story. the art is a bit to cutesy for the story in my opinion but thats just me.

welcome to irony. a demon is a kind priest, an angel is a naughty dirty boy, and somehow they make a couple that brings down the injustices of the world. i like them as a couple and i like that neither heaven nor hell is strictly good or evil. its all perception.

Yoshino Nako has a saying. "If I'm happy, I can do anything!"
In her sister's place, Nako-chan steals the groom of an arranged (political) marriage and helps them elope. But when the Hayami group starts failing, she must pay the consequence by housing the delinquent brother... Yes it is a romantic comedy and yes it is fairly obvious how it goes but it still is worth the read. it is a good fill the time read something cutesy manga. humor is a large part of this manga. prepare to laugh.

Dear Mine

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

Satoko is a domestic girl with a kind heart. She lost her father when she was little, and her family has been very poor ever since her father's company shut down. However, life is happy enough when you are optimistic, and Satoko enjoys her daily life heartily. One day, she is rescued from a attacking dog by Fuuma, an extraordinarily mature 10-year-old boy. Little does Satoko realize that this boy is the head of Wakudera Corporation, as well as her future husband! first of all there is an age gap. nothing sexual happens with underage kids but they are engaged and live in the same house so if any of that...

Alicia is a very interesting person. people call her the mistress of death and she is so fine with it. in fact she rather likes it. shes like a victorian goth lover, minus the black. she goes through life with a very accepting personality. i hated the wench maid, read it and you will understand, but liked the story over all. Worrying about too much romance? Well dont. Though emotionally they do get closer it isnt cheesy or sudden. it happens by them getting to know one another. theres little romantic interaction just a getting to know each other and accepting each other kind of thing.

Demon from Afar

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

This time travel period fantasy steeped in black magic is one of the newest works to come from the pen of Kaori Yuki, master of Gothic suspense. When Sorath is miraculously saved following a great earthquake and taken in by a sinister baron, he becomes ensnared in not only a romantic triangle, but also the dark secrets of the estate that becomes his new home. First of all Sorath rocks. He is one of my favorite male manga characters of all time. He goes through so much and sticks firm to his beliefs while growing as a person. The other characters are good as well but Sorath really steals the show. The art... See full review

Amnesia, Animal Characteristics and Artificial Intelligence. This is how I would sum up this story. Chica seems like a bit of an airhead (though amnesia will do that) but then bam you realize she is far wiser than you thought. she is kind and caring and somehow makes the world they live in a better place. she brightens up all their lives and evenwhen she has the chance to get her old memories back she still appreciates the life she has now. She's being cared for in a dome by an android guardian named Roy (whose life story makes me want to cry for him) and a maid android called Silvia (who ends up being... See full review

quirky is the one word you can use to describe this. the characters are weird, in a good way, but weird nonetheless. it isnt a stereotypical. its comedic and makes you laugh. the characters dont get along well which seems horrible for a romantic comedy but i guess its a great example of the opposites attract and love/hate thing.

Kodocha: Sana's Stage

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

This is drama drama drama. The characters were real. They grow, develop, mess up, learn and move on. At one point i laughed, sometimes I cried, then I bit my nails. It is up and down and all over the place! My only complaint is that I wanted to know how their story goes in the future. Then I found DEEP CLEAR and though its from another view point it shows what happens to them later in life. Anyway if you are looking for something real to read, escape into someone else's life, with drama and friendship, love and hate go for this.

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

In the begining I wanted to punch Hokuto Mamiya and cheered on Chiwa Takanashi. I wanted her to get everything she needed and wanted because she was caring, determined and self sacrificing and he was an ass. Towards the end I liked everyone and hoped for a happily ever after.

Challengers

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

This was great. I read it before I read The Tyrant Falls in Love. It is much shorter so the characters do not have a chance to develop as much but it is amazing. The relationship between the two is different as Tomeo is asexual in attractions and lifestyle. I loved seeing their story and looked forward to seeing them more in The Tyrant Falls in Love.

Himegimi to Sanbiki no Kemono

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

The princess was naive but determined, the "bad guys" end up not being bad at all and though short the story is interesting, everyone gets some personal growth in there and a bit of a twist. I love the assortment of characters mixed with a traditional storyline (it is a bit predictable but not in a bad way). Its short and sweet and worth the read.

Beauty Pop

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

I loved this. Never have I read a manga that has a male character like this. Narumi (one of the male leads) reminds me of Tamaki (from ouran high school host club) but terrified of girls. Its a condradiction but it works. Kiri (female main character) is amazing. She is so gifted but lazy, a good friend but amazingly blunt. A worthy read. One of the first series I added to my collection.

This is Boys Love so seriously keep that in mind. I loved this. Its short yes but the premise does not call for something long and drawn out. It is different from other reads. The characters are not what i expected and there was a bit of a plot twist I wasn't expecting.

Fruits Basket

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

So the anime is fun, upbeat and light. All fluffy feeling. The manga starts out similar. Then takes a turn to the dark. It turns deep, dark, and not expected. Its still good but some things start to feel rushed. The ending tapers off into an anticlimatic ending but overall the manga is amazing. the character development is progressive and good. The story is interesting, love the concept, and (mostly) moves along at a nice pace. The diverse character personalities make for a fun and heartwarming read. It is very worth it.

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

This is the best manga I have ever read. I watched the anime and thought it was hilarious so I started the manga (mostly because I hated the lack of closure for the anime). The manga is even better. It combines comedy, romance, and a lot of character development and growth. It is the perfect balance between everything to make an addicting read. I cannot stress enough how amazing this is. I read it as fast as I can get my hands on it.

Assassination Classroom

ffbfran's avatar By on Apr 5, 2016

I loved this. I started out watching the anime and couldn't wait for more so I read the manga. It is amazing. The characters are all different, interesting and despite the assassinating attempts normal. Mixing that world with the world of school is the most amazing idea ever. It starts out as pure humor but the second half gets more serious and intense. The humor is still there but you get more. It doesn't diminish the story. The ending made me both happy and sad. It is definitely worth a read and buy.

Honestly this started out as a 10 for me. 29 chapters in I now feel like they are just adding things in to stretch it out. It feels like the end should have already come and it hasn't. The characters started out feeling complex and interesting. Now I find them annoying. The guy seems unable to be serious even when its called for and the girl annoyingly refuses to admit her feelings even when she admits it. She quite literally admits her feelings out loud but then refuses to act on them. They make me want to pull my hair out. The art is nice and suits the manga. The rest of the characters are humourous.

casandra29's avatar By on Apr 4, 2016

This manga really gets to the truth of human nature and relationships. It's not cute, it's not nice but it's real and that is what they were going for. In that way it did a splendid job. Many of the younger crowd would like to deny it for themselves and their situations but all this is very real. Personal opinions asside I think this manga accomplishes it's mission and does a good job of it. Every character is very well based in reality. That being said, many people don't read manga for the realism and even fewer do it to look at the flaws in their own nature so I doubt this manga would have a very good... See full review

Because the text got so long, I marked the key-elements in bold As of June 2015, One Piece has broken the world record for Most copies published for the same comic book series by a single author… by selling over 320 million books. Even taking into account the fact that it had 77 volumes at the time, it’s proof of the huge following this manga has (even more if you take piracy into account too). If you’re one of the people I speak to from time to time, who ignored this series or have thrown it aside because you don’t like the artstyle, because you think it’s “just... See full review

This manga is 3 chapters of Sweet little kiddy love with little kiddy drama and little kiddy friendships. They talk about kissing and almost do so a couple times but she tells him he has to wait to kiss her until she is 17... If we are talking going all the way then I understand but just a kiss? If she was 9 and saying to wait until she was 10 that would make more sense to me but 17? That's just silly. Anyways, the story was definately cutesy. If your into those types of things. There is nothing inapporpriate about this story, nothing at all. It's just a innocent love story between 2 teens who look to... See full review

hamletsmage's avatar By on Apr 3, 2016

Before we get on with the review, a PSA. Don't forget to plug in your headphones correctly before listening to anything in a public place.  Story: This yaoi/shounen-ai starts off with dubious sexual encounter. I'm tenative to call it rape because the uke seemed rather into the roll play of it. However, the uke was a straight virgin before the encounter, and does resist the seme at the beginning, so I'll just say dubious "maybe rape". The rest of the manga is sex... more sex... some feels, then sex... family conflicts... more sex. See where I'm going with this?  Art: There are some... See full review

Out of all the harlequin manga I have read, this one would make it into my top 5 easily. It's got a really good love story. I tend to really enjoy manga and novels that take place in the past so it already had that going for it... but it also created realistic and understandable drama and it gave you a sense of what it was like living as a woman in that day and age. The art was actually very good for a harlequin. Harlequin art can at times be really horrible but this one is one of the best ones I've seen. The people and backgrounds are drawn well.

This is a really cute manga. One of my favorites. There is really nothing I can point out about it that is bad. The story is very well thought out and interesting. The only thing that it could have been done to make the story a bit better would have been to lengthen it. There were many more things that could have happened and more of the experiment labs that were left to try to save the experimental subjects. They could have done more with the guy with bat wings since he was pretty interesting as a potential antagonist turned friend, but they just ended it. Don't get me wrong. It doesn't feel axed or...

This manga was difficult for me to read. I was not a fan of the self rightiousness of chiaki. However, the manga did have some very interesting and deep concepts within the story which I did like. It was more about weighing the female protagonist's annoyingness against the rest of the story for me and honestly she nearly won out and made it so I couldn't complete the story. However, I did push myself to finish it and when I did I was left with a lot to think about. Honestly, I'd say this story was worth the read for me, but I don't think I will ever pick it up again.

This manga is a prime example of a manga that had great potential to expand and make the story really good. However, it sadly doesn't live  up to that potential. It leaves many unanswered questions and the ending is like it was forced so the writer could just finish it. It's really too bad too. The story world is actually well thought out and very interesting. It takes place in the current era of our normal world but then an accident happens and people from another parellel world which is similar to ours except it is not as modern and they can use magic come into our world.

Raising a Bat

PaulandSoup's avatar By on Mar 29, 2016

  
Plot summary: The story of Raising a Bat (Bagjwi Sayug) focuses on Park Min Gyeom who suffers from hemochromatosis since he was a child, an illness that causes his body to produce too much blood so he needs to donate it regularly. When he finds out that his classmate Kim Chun Sam is a constantly starving half-vampire, he decides to donate his blood to him so they can both stay healthy.

This manga is a rip off of Twilight and Vampire Knight. If you like those stories you will probably like this and if you don't... well then you probably shouldn't bother reading this. The Vampires are not sparkly in sunlight but it is still visibly similar to twilight more than Vampire Knight I'd say.  This manga is one of the most unoriginal stories I've read in quite a while. People including me always talk about similarities and Cliche's but this story takes that unoriginality to a new level.

My biggest issue with this was the fact that the story would randomly take a completely different and often nonsensicle turn.

Abandon the Old in Tokyo

KR999's avatar By on Mar 26, 2016

It should be noted that the author of this manga: Tatsumi Yoshihiro - is widely regarded and respected as the founder of 'gekiga'. This was a movement which in the 60s/70s strived to create more mature manga suitable for an adult audience who had grown up reading what were still arguably Western-style cartoons. With this in mind 'Abandon the Old in Tokyo' is a dry, sombre series of short-stories each focusing on random examples of how modern society was (is?) steadily sliding into a morass of materialism and nihilism. This was (is?) a popular perception of the pre-War generation who... See full review

Ichi the Killer holds a special place in my heart for being perhaps the first seinen or 'adult' manga that I remember reading and enjoying for its outlandish characters; over-the-top violence; and exploration of extreme sadomasochism. Such was my teenage enthusiasm that I bought the live-action movie directed by Miike Takeshi which is shoddy in the strict definition of adaptation but is still rather entertaining if you're into surreal black comedy. At the time however I was still 'shonen' and so probably too immature to fully appreciate this work, the only other manga I'd encountered... See full review

This manga has clunky dialogue, lacks emotional subtlety, and character designs are not noteworthy.  But guess what? This is a great yaoi and drama manga (way better than most yaoi). It steps away from most of the wish-fullfilment fantasies that comes with yaoi. The most noteworhty aspect of this manga is that it actually touches on the subject of being gay. From a gay perspective, the protagonist's thoughts and emotional turmoils are very relatable.  In short, this manga is an essential read for any gay kids suffering through life and needing someone who can understand them and guide...

The art is pretty but the story is ugly. The general idea is interesting and has potential but is poorly executed. Understand that this is not for the faint-hearted or squeamish. While I have read some pretty hardcore manga like Gantz or Berserk or Battle Royale those were more action-oriented while this is just plain disturbing and depressing. Rather than drive the plot or character development I find the scenes of sexual violence simply exploitative, not in any sense of titilation but rather it seems the author is merely trying to shock the...

Blopody mary is amazing, to be blunt. From the first volume you are already drawn into a unique, comical, and complex plot. The characters are presented in divine ways. The BL aspect of it is exciting, and it slowlyu progresses with the plot. Already though, you can see the relationship between mary and Maria forming into something amazing. I Thouroughly enjoyed the first volume of this manga and hope that the Second volujme is just as exciting when i pick it up this weekend.

(im going to mention how the story changes up to Searching for allen walker arc// to 219 220 221 WITH MINOR SPOILERS like just mentioning exorcists or changes in story line) D.Gray man isnt your average shonen, it shares qualities similar to a seinen, however that is only in the later chapters.

Yuru Koi

I liked how it was short, straightorward and very sweet without the usual drama I can't seem to escape when reading romance manga. It also made me reflect on myself and rethink my behaviour. Also, points for originality. 10/10 would recomend.
