Blood Parade

AngelBeatsYui's avatar By on Feb 19, 2016

Warning this review may contain spoilers Revenge plot against vampires, haven't heard that one before :/ Well that's pretty what this is about, we have Gilles who's family was killed by a pure-blood vampire and is now seeking revenge on the vampire who murdered his family and that whole scenario once again. Honestly it wasn't a terrible manga it was just so rushed, everything was solved pretty much within the 12 chapters (other than a couple of things). STORY So the story involves our main Gilles who gets paired up with a girl Luna who ends up being the vampire empress (which isn't really a spoiler as... See full review

Inochi Mijikashi, Koi seyo Furyou Shounen!

AngelBeatsYui's avatar By on Feb 18, 2016

Warning this Review May Contain Spoilers- So this review decided it was going to be awkward while I was writing it and I kept pressing random buttons on my keyboard somehow and it deleted itself quite often. Anyway this review may be quite short so I’ll try and get through it quite quickly. So this manga is about a boy who has to have a relationship with a certain girl or he shall…. DIE. *Random Whale Noises* STORY So you may be thinking that this series is quite highly rated and that for me to rate the story only a 5 much be strange and unusual. Honestly I feel like the story was squashed... See full review

Canon

casandra29's avatar By on Feb 15, 2016

Canon is an excellent Older manga and honestly it's one of my favorite Vampire manga I've read so far. This story has tons of action and drama and although slow moving the romance is extremely heartfelt. Many times in manga that has romance and drama in it there is forced tension and shallow characters causeing meaningless issues. However, this story has none of that. The drama isn't petty. The story deals mainly with the subject of betrayal and revenge and the endless cycle revenge can create until someone breaks that cycle. Its a subject that is easy to identify with by many readers including me... See full review

Daniel and Daughter

casandra29's avatar By on Feb 14, 2016

This Harlequin Manga is actually pretty unique, because instead of telling one love story they tell 2 at the same time. The story flows pretty well and definately has some cute and comical moments. The art is average but I really enjoyed the expressions they drew on the characters. The Characters are what make this manga memorable. We have the young beautiful Teen Phobe who is 16 and extremely impulsive which is normal for her age. Daniel, Phobe's father, is one of my favorite harlequin men so far. He has a lot of personality flaws but you can see him struggling within himself to try not to piss Lee off... See full review

I.O.N

hamletsmage's avatar By on Feb 14, 2016

I'll premise this by saying that I found I.O.N. on the bargain shelf at my local used bookstore. I had never even heard of the manga before I saw it sitting there, dog-earred and costing pocket change.  Story: The story follows Ion as she gains psychic powers and falls in love with the president of the psychic research club at her school. There's a lot of romantic rival subplot, which is ok, but not really my thing. For how short it the series is (6 chapters), I felt the story suited it's length. And at one point, the mangaka even states (in a side note) that certain elements were only brought in when... See full review

By Love Alone

casandra29's avatar By on Feb 13, 2016

This manga is not my cup of tea as far as harlequins go. Some Harlequins of a spicific type have misunderstandings that are so rediculous that it's annoying, they do this just to try to add forced tension and drama to the manga. This is one of those manga and because of that I was not able to like it. The art was almost average but some of the facial expressions were really weird. Like there was some hidden comedy in there that I couldn't understand. If it had any comedy it was pretty stale. The females in this story drive me absolutely crazy. The guy is not much better but the girls.... they... See full review

Ibara no Okite

casandra29's avatar By on Feb 13, 2016

This manga is one of my favorites. It's about a romantic love between 2 people of extremely different social standing, back when those types of things mattered quite a bit more. Although short, the story does a excellent job in showing the love blossom between the 2 main characters. Showing it go from curiosity to love and all the things they have to deal with as their love develops. The art is good but nothing really stands out to me about it either good or bad. The characters and story are what make this short manga memorable. I actually think it could have gotten a bit better if they expanded on the... See full review

Bedded, or Wedded?

casandra29's avatar By on Feb 13, 2016

This Harlequin manga was a good short read. The only real qualms I had with it were at times the mangaka tried too hard to decieve the reader. It's easyer to see a deception when you try too hard and dance around certain subjects when there are much easier ways of saying them. This manga is a common example of a romance manga in which the story suggests that things are one way and they try to push you to that conclusion when really it's not that way at all. The art was just slightly above average. I felt it was above average because of the way they drew the characters. I think they did a excellent job... See full review

Backwards Honeymoon

casandra29's avatar By on Feb 13, 2016

This harlequin manga was a pretty good read. I'd rate it about average as far as harlequins go in every catagory. It has a understandable and fairly relatable beginning. The girl is a bit over the top but given her backgrount that is to be expected I guess. It was a mystery to me why the guy went through with helping her. He seemed like a normal and decent guy and they were not friends or anything. When she brought up marrage to a man she didn't know it made me feel just as weirded out as the guy acted. Given how short the manga was it did a excellent job making me feel for and understand the... See full review

Getter Robo Anthology - Shinka no Ishi

Sanpedroamigo's avatar By on Feb 12, 2016

A collection of alternate/what-if stories by various artists about the world's first transforming mech, Getter Robo. The artwork is a treat, especially if you're a fan of the franchise, and is a breeze to read through. I'd recommend reading the entire series first before giving ths a browse, however.

If you like scary, weird, crazy stuff, this is definetely for you! I haven't finished reading the whole thing ( the manga website I use is slow on updates), but I definetely plan to!

Beware, though, if you decide to give this a try, cuz there's gore in a good number of the stories.  Not trying to tell people not to read this, just giving a gore warning.

Junji Ito's Cat Diary: Yon & Mu

deideiblueeyez's avatar By on Feb 8, 2016

The fact that one of the masters of horror actually did a manga under 'comedy' was bizarre enough of an idea to draw me into reading this, and I was very satisfied by it, oddly enough. Story: Junji and his wife (referred to as J-kun and A-ko in the story, respectively) have two cats named Yon and Muu that live in their house. And that's it. Well, it's more than that, but it's very honestly a slice-of-life story about the shenanigans and odd behaviors that cats get into because they're cats and while I'm not an avid cat person, it was still entertaining to read since cats are massive trolls by...

RedH's avatar By on Feb 6, 2016

This is one of the magas that caught my eye. I loved the story but Yukina just doesn't want to be hated. My favorite part is when Mami and Akira were together so Yukina and Shigure where left but Shigure is kinda ignoring Yukina and keeps saying,"Where's Mami?" And didn't notice Yukina was sick,wery sick until Akira came back and noticed. IT made my heart hurts ft.

Bambino!

deideiblueeyez's avatar By on Feb 6, 2016

In quick summation, Bambino! is one of the best cooking manga out there and the fact that as I type this there is no synopsis on this site for it means that it's not very widely known, and that's a crying SHAME, in my opinion. The Wiki page, of all things, has very little information on it! There isn't even a synopsis there, either! It's WIKIPEDIA. Story: Bambino! is the story of one red-haired (IDK how that happens) college-aged guy named Shogo Ban who wishes to become a professional chef. He eventually finds himself working at the Trattoria Baccanale, Roppongi's best Italian restaurant... See full review

ES: Eternal Sabbath

GutterKitty's avatar By on Feb 3, 2016

This is one of my all time favorite manga. Mars, also by Fuyumi Soryo, was the first manga I ever read and I absolutely adored it. As such I rushed out to find more of her work and ES: Eternal Sabbath was the only other manga by her that was available. I was hesitant to read it at first, namely because the synopsis makes the story out to be much less than what it truly is, but after flipping through the first volume I just had to buy it. Not only do I love how Ms (Mrs?) Soryo tells a tale, but her characters are complex and evolve throughout time. Not to mention how much I love her art style, particularly... See full review

Naruto (Pilot)

Kailenrulzu's avatar By on Feb 2, 2016

This is a very different story compared to the Naruto we all know and i agree with SaintsKoi, I like the changes in the current one compared to the story this presents. NAruto is the same goofball as ever but he's a demon's child instead of a child with a demon supressed inside. The Kage is a Cheif and his design is terrible compared to the mainstream manga. Art is visually similar to the mainstream manga and the characters are pretty similar as well so they get an average score from me. If your a Naruto fan this is one chapter you must...

Attack on Titan: No Regrets

wags1449's avatar By on Feb 2, 2016

This story deals with Levi and his small band of misfits who dwell in the underground. They cross paths with a younger Erwin who is a squad leader at this point. Levi and Erwin's relationship in this manga is much different from what you would come to expect via Attack on Titan. It is very interesting to see how everything plays out (There is a small subplot that helps drive the main plot, and this contributes to the two being at odds). Levi gets further development and you see a slightly more primordial version of the Survey Corps. My only gripes are that the story is too... See full review

Neon Genesis Evangelion

The manga that started a year before its TV counterpart, but didn't finish until nearly 20 years later. Comparisions to the legendary anime are inevitable, but how well does this manga stand on its own?

STORY As it has been a couple years since I've seen the original anime, and the fact that the manga version is considered equally 'canon' with the anime, I'll be refraining from doing a full-scale comparsion and try to deduce whether or not this version can stand on its own.

In short, it does. The premise is established quickly and effectively, then built upon carefully to slowly turned what... See full review

This story has elicited many emotions within me, very few of them pleasant. I had attempted to read this story on three separate occasions but then dropped it before reaching the fourth or fifth chapter for a reason I could not express into words. It was something like frustration and envy rolled into one. Only after finally saying "You know what, I NEED to read this, just to get it out of the way. Then I can put this to rest and move on, never touching it again" I sat down and really pushed myself to power through this series. And I was struck by a few revelations that made me better...

Bastard

hagino's avatar By on Jan 31, 2016

Bastard has an interesting story-line. This situation HAS happened to children before: Their parent or guardian used the child to draw victims to the killer. Even though the main character has been drawn in a positive light, it's implied he himself has a dark side. Hopefully he will never end up like his father. An interesting story, with quite a bit (unexpected) feelings. I'm currently enjoying it and will see how the story is going

derkaczchiks's avatar By on Jan 31, 2016

This manga is for sure a yaoi type, very refreshing. We can feel the pressure on the main character and that's what we like in yaoi. We meet many different type of guys and different type of personality. It include sexual content, they like to play a lot, but also a mature double sens. I don't know if the story will become more specific for each guy or if it will stay the story of the main character, but for now it's interesting reading. For yaoi fan you will not be deceived Enjoy !

An interesting story that starts out well, has interesting plot twists that keep you interested despite the sometimes slow pace, and characters that mature as people and deepen their friendships as the story progresses. The artwork is not too filled that I get overwhelmed or confused as I read the pages. There are some funny repeated gags. The real gold of the manga is seen if you stick with reading the story.  The story does not have romance or scantily dressed females. The manga does not appear to be action centric. Yet, I never looked for these things in the first place. +C: Sword and Cornett is... See full review

  This is not NTR by going by the definition, but there is cheating. I should not be giving away any spoilers, because by the title alone one should guess what this story is about. Some folks defend the actions of the wife, but she is just a w***e. At least the husband has a reason why he is married to her, but the wife married him because I guess she loves or loved him? Yet, she is screwing around behind his back, why not just get a divorce?

A pretty good story, that takes place in the future about a young boy who works, as a window washer, to take care of his gaurdian. While working there are some delinquents who cause damage to windows and harm one of his officer friends. He gets pissed off at them and crashes the delinquents and the cops chasing them into a civilian overpass. Art and story are done by Yusuke Murata who does well with this one shot. There is a small bit of feels when we learn the history of the main charater. A low 9/10 very good, worth the 10-15 mins to read.

Don't let the first few chapters fool you. This is not simply a love story between a big business owner and a poor girl.

I believe this is a first for Kishimoto writting a noir story, even thought his mangas are packed with action and movement this one was kind of mild in that sense, but it was showing his polished style after several year with Naruto.

The story has a good twist and at the same time keeps it simple for a long one shot. I would have liked for him to develop a bit more the main characters, but I guess that was the point for the twist in the story. Still, a well played move.

Overall was a good read and refreshing to top it off.

There is no plot. The language is an unintelleigble gibberish almost like a code. The only good things about this manga are that the art sytle is very cool and it's only 12 pages long. There are scenes of murder, and torture. Mutilated bodies seems to be the most common running theme. That really is the entire thing.

Important Note: Before Honey x Honey Drops lovers beat me for my low review scores, I think it's important to say that I based my scores on objectively looking at what each catagory deserves. Not my personal like or dislike of the manga. I actually could have went a little lower on the Art Catagory, but I tend to grade a bit high so nothing is below a 5 in art unless it is Hideous. I'll get to my personal opinion in the review. I just feel it's only fair so people don't start the story with unrealistic expectations.  Story:  Honey x Honey Drops has a pretty decent story.

Jamerax's avatar By on Jan 24, 2016

The story starts of great, there is plenty of emotional depth and a relatable protagonist. However, as the story progresses it becomes a glorified emo cliche with way too much focus on romanic attractions and a not so clear motive for the protagonist to follow.  It get's worse with just how over powered the protagonist becomes and his general outlook on everything gradually changes from pessimistic loner to tsundere straight man. I felt like the story was made rather well in the beginning but then it felt like the author swapped out with an awkward pervert that has daddy issues. Really, everything... See full review

There is not really a single word that one can use to describe this series. Set in a high school, it does not focus on the popular, the cool or the rich people, rather, it focuses on a lone student who is ostracized from the student body for being "different." Plot - As mentioned above, the story is set in a high school and focuses on a character who is "different" from all the others. From the first page, the plot has you hooked. The slow development of the story into something fantastic, including the placement of the flashback chapters, is nigh on perfect. Rather than just focus on... See full review

While the art is not particularly bad, just like every regular shojo manga, the story is poor and most characters are too cliche. The main idea (having a burglar high school girl stealing certain objects in order to solve other highschooler's problems, while she's secretly in love with the teacher who helps her) lacks a proper introduction and it just shows several stories that end abruptly.

This particular manga shows that Wataru Yoshizumi is an author more suited to long stories rather than short ones.

People that read up to chapter 3 thinks it's only about the mc getting a girl but, it's about the mc(park hyung suk) dealing with the people who had bullied him.

Fort of Apocalypse

I really love stories that involve zombies, and this is one might be my favorite. The characters are really great, they have unique personalities, and they have really well developed and interesting backstories, maybe except for the main charcter, who could stand to have a more unique backstory. He's sort of the typical shonen protag with ~special~ powers. He's still cool though. I also really love the relationships between the characters, and im still cheering them on to become CLOSER. (haha) And the zombies.....dude. They are sooo ****** cool! They're super creepy and really one of a kind. Their designs... See full review

Innocents Shounen Juujigun

This is a very very interesting and cool as hell manga. I really enjoyed it alot and im even considering buying it, which would be useless for me because it has not been english licensed, and i can't read japanese, so you can see that it is just that good. The thing is though, it is not well known because it is quite old and is very hard to read because it was never even fully translated into english, by any scantilation group either. So even I have not been able to finish it, believe me, i've tryed to find it. There's three volumes, but only the first is available to read in english. But don't let that... See full review

J no Subete

This is my favorite manga ever, written by one of my favorite manga authors ever. I cannot sress this enough, it is amazing. I will say, its definetly not for everyone, it has some very graphic and desturbing scenes, and some very upsetting parts including transphobia, homophobia, rape, attempted suicide, lots of sad stuff, ext. But the story of the amazing transwoman lead- J, makes me cry every time i read it.

Typically when child abuse and neglect are featured in manga, the story can go one of two ways: In one scenario, focus is placed on the healing process, however and wherever the abused character(s) find it: Drugs, sex, genuinely healthy or unhealthy relationships, with dramatic and sometimes hopeful results that [51% Nurture, 49% Nature] types will accept as gratifying (or sometimes bittersweet) proof that with enough love and good treatment someone can find a way to put their past behind them. By the same token, the focus can also be placed on the seemingly endless domino effect of a mind being quickly... See full review
