i really liked the art in this story but the characters werent that real for me. it was kinda hard to relate to ichika or satauki and their behavoir didnt make that much sense and the little side story at the end bothered me because that guy was a jerk and hit her and how that chapter was written it felt like maybe she would stay with him.
i read the japenese and the english version. lets just say, its really different from the anime. in the japense version, pretty much all the female characters have huge breats, even misty. i the english version, alot of those things are censored and edited out. at the end of volume 4, there was a huge surprise. i wont give any spoilers, youll just have to read it yourself ;)
the manga is way better than the anime. the artwork is amazing, the characters are written well, and well, its just wayyyy better than the anime. some people might not agree, but this is just my opinion. thats all im gonna say.
wait. im very confused about this manga. i read this manga a few years ago when it was unfinished and i just recently finished it (i only had 2 more chapters to read apparently). the story is very very good, however i feel like it ended up too short. SPOILER ALERT so chinami finally reveals her feelings to her male bestfriend. however in the end i still didnt get to see his answer. so its like did he return his feelings for her? are they dating? will chinami ever turn back into a man? i feel its unfinished.
I unfortunately bought all 4 books of this series and all I can say now is, don't waste your time with these books. You might as well get the anime film. Nothing annoys me more than a cut and paste job.
I don't particularly like dolls, but I thought I would give this first volume a go. It's good if you're into stories that involve relationships with dolls, but my phobia got in the way of my enjoyment. Elements of it remind me of the "baby and favourite blanket" culture that has been seen in Japan news stories, which also turned my feelings to become irritated. At least I've tried it though and I can safely say I found it far from sexy (elements of fetish are present) and far from appealing.
Despite all the recommendations, I just don't care much for this book/series. Friends think I'm mad for not loving it, but quite frankly, it's another story about homosexuality for the sake of homosexuality, with the backdrop of a music industry.
First time I read it, I couldn't understand why someone would be attracted to a complete stuck up and it never got any better each time I tried to return to give it a go again.
Oh well. Never mind. It's one to sell on for me.
I think this one has got my typical response to a shojo / girl comic. It ticks a few good boxes, considering I can relate to the main character who's got the delightful name of Hanabi (which means "firework") but all the faffing around done between the characters as they continue to be be in denial about how they're feeling, annoys me frankly. It's great for what it's meant to be, but this particular shojo is just not my cup of tea.
I did enjoy reading this, as I have most of Sanami Matoh's other work, but this is definitely not my favourite. :) Matoh openly admits that the page layout isn't to her best standard and that it almost didn't make it to publication... Matoh's project does seem to be a worthwhile read despite this and if anything, my main disappointment is that this is another one off!
Definitely worth the read if you enjoyed her other work!
Don't know what else to say but I found this book too shallow to hold my interest. The logic the story runs on isn't believable, but considering it's based on (from what I gather) a fighting video game, this may be why it's so lacking.
Waste of space. Promptly dropped.
I picked this up with a fairly open mind and I wasn't disappointed. I only regret not picking it up sooner considering it near enough ticks all my boxes!
Quite an incredibly sad story. I think most people won`t be able to relate to this story unless they've had at least a brush with the subject of suicide. I do not like sad stories that are too real, they tend to make me very uncomfortable and this is one of those stories. The artwork is different to what I'm used to too, but it is very beautiful. Hopefully other stories by this amazing artist will be of a happier theme.
Not bad - especially considering all I could find was the second volume to start on!
Fun, light hearted read. Very enjoyable. :)
This one leaves a lot to be desired. I kept coming back to it because the concept appeals to me, but as for a story, it fails to get beyond skin-deep which in turn makes it a bit of a dull read so I have not yet got the drive to go pick up the next book. If I see book 2 in the library, I may give it a quick glimpse to see if the situation improves, but I don't think this is likely.
This one didn't really keep my attention. I felt there was a lot of wandering which is an interest killer, almost as if the author themselves weren't sure where they were going with the story. The artwork is okay I suppose, but nothing spectacular.
Didn't care for it much.
Story: One Punch Man is probably one of the most hilarious, Action-Packed and amazing manga's I've read in a LONG time. It's so entertaining and different. Usually when a story starts it's more built up to where the protagonist is becoming stronger but with One Punch Man it gives this sense of what if the Protagoist is already over powered and with that you would think it would be a boring plot but it's not! :D It's actually a really interesting story of "What can you do if your too over-powered?" Characters:(Some Spoilers) Most of the characters are very dependent one Power or rankings... read more
1. Story You might say it's cliché, yeah... kind of. The characters are forced to play, shit happens, and even more shit happens. You won't get any epic battle of wits nor gameplay like in Epicmafia - they just run around and kill, not even searching for clues. I guessed the wolf from beginning since author is baiting you whole time, while trying to do some clown twists, but the ending is so illogical that I doubt someone will get the mastermind. Still though, pretty neat, short story, not much of thinking involed and not much to write about since the author gives you everything on a... read more
*I do not mean to undermine the existing review, I just wanted to add one of my own.* Warning - this manga has high gore content, and it is not "cleverly censored". There is a reason this is listed for having "mature content". It is pretty disturbing, but truly interesting. If you're into gore style horror and a whirlwind plot that grows more complex as more is revealed as chapters pass - Pupa is something I recommend to you! As the reader, you're introduced to the back story from the viewpoint of Utsutsu by way of adorable teddy bears in tragic scenes. You move on... read more
First off - this is a one-shot COLLECTION of short high-stakes games. NOT two volumes following the amusement park game. -.-* Get your synopsis right! (It was split into 2 volumes for English release, I was told - it is one volume in Japan) Most of these shorts are pretty interesting, some very similar to Deadman Wonderland style, and I think they could have branched off more on those. A couple had good back-stories but of course are only 1 to 2 chapters long so you don't really get to enjoy it much. If you're looking for a quick read, it certainly gives you that. The final game was the only one I... read more
I loved the art i loved the hands specially , its completely different to your typicial yaoi hands and long faces, i could actually understand the sex scenes with out fluids everywhere. the things is i had to drop it because i hated this whole. Blackmail forced blowjob i like love, if i read a yaoi i expect as much romance as any shoujo
Ashita Dorobou is a manga that one can most accurately describe as a romance with supernatural / sci-fi elements. Story The premise is very interesting: after a huge black UFO appears, a man meets his ex-girlfriend, who mysteriously hasn't changed at all in 9 years and who seemed to shoot lasers from her fingers. I won't spoil any more of the story, because it's really best to just sit back and enjoy the ride. The pacing is really good: it seems that the author planned the story out really well, and made sure not to drag it out (it's only 30 chapters + an epilogue). The ending... read more
"John is a dog. John is sick of obeying his master’s commands" An extremely short synopsis for an extremely short manga. Ths one shot offers a fun ride of 13 pages, about a master with a disobeying dog. A great comedy, and certainly worth your time since it's so short. would recommend
this story is truly raw and a emotional rollercoster. Yet refreshing. I loved the development and even though it ended kinda weird i think its a must read
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS MANGA. the unique characters and everything. i love how they don't just have one personality. for example miyamora is a shy and good guy but he has tattoos piercing and he is blunt. also he doesn't blush or get embarressed. Hiyo is a popular girl who is practically a house wife. SPOILER SPOILER in their first kissing scene when he ate her candy from her mouth she didn't blush or anything she was just like "what just happened" o_o. SPOILER END. they both are randomly scary or bad tempered which makes things funny. i love how hori doesnt have that typical reaction when girls... read more

Haiiii~ (~◠▽◠)~♥ Lately, it appears to me that it's easier to find a good Manhwa (korean comics) than Manga! Manhwa are usually webcomics in full color that have a less detailed art and non complex stories... at least that what I think *shrug* So this time I'm reading & reviewing a manhwa called ''Crepuscule'' and I gotta say, this name immediately got my attention because I'm familiar with the word (it means dusk/twilight in old english). I plan to review all 3 parts of the story. I have read 40 chapters so far, will update this review when I read more. STORY The... read more
If you thought Itou Makoto was a jerk before - wait til you see him in this short series that takes place at the same time as the original series. While the manga doesn't follow Makoto, we get a much darker insight into his motivations and character, which will eliminate any pity you may have felt before for him. Quite opposite to Makoto is our actual protaganist - Yuuki, who is in a relationship turmoil of his own too - but he is a much more righteous character and is appalled at makoto's actions. The series is a similarly well-written work and a nice view of some of the background events of... read more
Yuureitou is not finished yet, so I'm basically writing this review just because there's no synopsis nor tag. The story follows young Taichi and Tetsuo, as they try to solve the mystery of a ghost clock tower and find the hidden treasure, around 1950. Taichi is a poor NEET of the time, who can barely afford living expenses and thus is mesmerised when seemingly randomly he meets Tetsuo, who is beautiful, charming and seems to have lots of money. As one mystery is solved another is posed and the story unravels in horror, some gore and explanations that can have the reader on the edge of their sit. There... read more
THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! THE BEST! The detail in the characters in all their aspects is exellent. I loved the story Line. And I am highly satisfied with the Art. This manga is quite humorous. The only thing i wish was there is romance. This is my most favourite manga i have ever read and most likely will always be. I saw the anime and fell in love with it. I even produced my own fanfiction about OgaXKunieda. I wish this series never ended. I want them to make a season 2 of the anime and I know that won't happen but there will... read more
AMAZINGG JUST AMAZING. I like the fact how the manga and anime is slightly different with the stories, but still the same. I still prefer the anime version since the dark parts were really emphasized with the music that went with it. but I love zombie related things, but i can never stand actually looking at blood and ugly faces and such. in fact i hate dark and horror related genres, its just a really rare few animes/mangas i can't resist. This manga is amazing because it still gives that really light and school feeling so i don't feel as scared. SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER the story is so amazing i... read more
okay.. so I just finished reading it.. and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! actually I had troubles reading this manga, when I started it the mangaka stopped for like almost a year :) I was very sad cause it's stopped in the middle of nowhere like seriously I was soooo excited and then suddenly "no next chapter" for like 3 months then I searched for the reason and BAAM! she's having some problems with publisher magazine! anyways the good news were on 2nd of Nov 2013:" Ichigo Takano's popular shoujo series "Orange" will be moving from Shueisha's Bessatsu... read more
I love BL. like. LOVE IT. i especially like a good story to go along with it. although the art is really good and the guys are good looking, the story could use a little work. i feel each story the guys just meet, get sad, then all of the sudden they make out and have sex. theres no real story that builds up. they don't question "but we're both guys" or even claim that they're gay and they just accept their fate really easily. but i still like the action going on.
When I first started reading Yankee-kun it grapped me right away with the characters personalities. With the main group of characters able to always complement the each other. The story was entertaining with each arc and I ended up finishing the series in a couple of days. The ending was the only disappointing part of it. And that is for you to find out. Wish there was more of the series to read since I enjoyed it greatly.
Tokyo ghoul is an amazing manga! The story line is very captivating, lots of plot twist and foreshadowing. Its very interesting psychologically. I have read the whole story multiple times and I keep discovering new hints. the one really big down side about Tokyo ghoul is the ending, it broke my hart in to a million pieces. But the story is so good it’s definitely worth it. The story took me in immediately, during the middle part there are some chapters that might seem a little on the slow side but once you have read them you will start to appreciate it and later see more depth
This is my first review so, I apologize if it isn't helpful. Anyways...
STORY (possible spoilers, well..not really)
Kaze Hikaru's story is about a girl named Tominaga Sei who, after both her father and brother get killed by an enemy clan, decides to seek revenge. For this, she disguises herself as a man and joins the Shinsegumi. However, she tries to hide the fact that she's a girl but fails when Okita Soji discovers her true gender. So, after a while, Tominaga Sei begins to fall for Soji and her primary goals begin to change.
The story is quite entertaining, although you may find it's similar to... read more
(Re-upload of my first review)
The story revolves around Guts a man out for revenge but soon his background is explained as a boy who didn't have parents from the day he has born, but instead has been raised by a band of mercenaries who had found him. Being in a band of mercenaries he enters battles at a very young age. We see him go from battlefield to battlefield while he grows up which leads to a great tragedy hurting himself and all his dear friends. Will he search for revenge with the danger of losing himself in his own anger and hate to become a monster himself. Or will... read more
Once I finished the anime that left on a total cliffhanger (didn't even feel like an ending because it wasn't). I had to find out what happened, I was not disappointed in the least. It's cute, it's interesting, and it ends very very well on a very clever note. I had an ache in my heart when it was over. *SPOILER ALERT* I am so happy/relieved/refreshed to find a harem anime that ACTUALLY picked a girl and stuck with her. I have been watching/reading way too many romance "blue balls" anime/manga where they never commit to a couple.
When I was looking for a romance manga, I had the lucky to find this one and it was one of my best decisions. As expected from the author of "a town where you live".
A very unusual plot where two strangers met for the first time after their death and have to decide who will die after 7 days because of a selfish decision of a god.
this manga is just wonderful and the main characters change drastically in the course of the week making you not know who will live or die and especially what will happen to their feelings.
I'm a fan of Rumiko Takahashi in general, so I've read most of her work, my favorite being Inuyasha. So I started reading this expecting a whole new journey, and I'm not disappointed. But I'm not over the moon either. The story is new and interesting, a few parallels with Bleach that I thought funny. It's shounen type, so there isn't necessarily one set storyline, but multiple small stories put together, again almost like Bleach or Naruto. It does get repetitive, but the character personalities keep me interested. They may look similar to a lot of Inuyasha characters (almost turned me off from... read more
I'm going to start off by saying this, gangsta. has really taken me off guard, though in a good way! Before I stumbled on this gem, I wondered "why can't I find any characters that aren't wholly good? Some that maybe do rotten things, but aren't necessarily rotten people?". Then I started reading, and I was hooked from the characters mostly. The only reason I give the characters 8/10 is because they are more mature adults, and I don't think they'll be changing much anytime soon, and I'm big on character development. They all seem, at least to me, set in their ways. Other than that, I love... read more
This manga is only 7 pages long. And it's effing weird. Story A mysterious figure comes across a girl whose arm is stuck in a wall and being gnawed on by some demons(?). If I went any further, I would have spoiled the entire manga, as it's not very eventful. Art The art is unique... It doesn't look very much like any manga I've ever seen. I honestly expected some mindbendingly gruesome and realistic art because of the list I found this manga on; it's pretty tame and visually pleasant for a psychological/surreal horror manga. Characters There are two characters. They do not develop other the course... read more
Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso or Your lie in April is one of the best romance manga I've ever read, the plot was very immersive, it was not just romance, it was also drama, A LOT of drama, telling us the problems and traumas of each character while they were trying their best to overcome them. So, if you want to read a different kind of romance, or something that may make you cry, I really recommend this one.
right now there is only one other review for this manga and i know that some readers are confused to what happened in the first few chapters since it moved rather quickly. so let me start off by explaining the plot to this manga series. the main Character, Mizuki goes to an all girls school and she is part of a band. she has alwys pride herself in being cool and having a "prince" title within her school. she is not attracted to other girls, she just finds it fun to play the role of "prince". meanwhile a cute looking guy named Akira wants to join her girl band, and he goes to an all boy... read more
The first manga I ever read, and still one of my favorites. Not perfect, but a really enjoyable manga (even if it gets quite tagic at some parts).
Warning this Review May Contain Spoilers: So here we have the one-off one-shot for the Cross Manage Manga, this really however is just a preview to the main manga which is how quite a few people would view it. So the story is basically a boy ends up in a silly situation because he accidently went in a locker room when a girl was changing and ended up being the new manager of the Lacross club. STORY For a pilot it doesn't contain too much, but in this situation it is kind of expected. It is a cute story to bring a person in, drawing them to read the main story just as the purpose is. However in the end... read more
This is an incredibly sweet collection of sweet shoujo stories. The author has given us yet another beautiful romance,i really liked each story.
Warning this review may contain spoilers- This Review is in progress and isn't complete at this point in time So this review is for Usotsuki Lily, a cute romance manga with a twist because the male lead is in fact a crossdresser. Just a few things before I start the main review, so at first we have the two mains Hinata Saotome and En Shinohara. it starts with En confessing to Hinata in this 'Boy form' I guess you can put it like that. Hinata at first doesn't recongise him at first but when she gets back to her classroom her friends point out that the handsome boy that just confessed to her was the... read more
Ultimate Venus was very interesting story but something was missing in this story. I would recommend this manga to every girl who likes harem, arranged marriage etc. I think I will read next manga of this author. This manga is very similar to Hanasakeru Seishounen.
It is an good story that loosely follows the plot of Dragon's Dogma game that was released during the same time as Skyrim. For those who never heard of it: it is a not to bad game with good combat dynamic's IE: Able to climb large foes to deal damage in hard to reach places. Another nice thing about it is the Pawn system that is sort of A.I. and the amount of Vocations (classes for those who don't understand) too is nice: Strider, fighter, mage are the 3 basic vocations. Warrior, ranger, and sorceror are the advanced vocations, then there is 3 more vocations known as hybred vocations that combine 2 basic... read more
Shibata is a 29 year old pushover that has simply rotten taste in men. Her current boyfriend was just using her as a meal ticket and for freebies. I really like her even though she is clueless. Shunin used to be her boss and they have a wonderful love/hate relationship where the sparks just fly between them. I love how she calls him gross all the time, it is unbelievably cute. All the characters are great in this story so far, and I really find myself rooting for the MCs to get together at the end. They just seem to compliment each other and I don't see them happy with anyone else. This manga is... read more
