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.
This in fact is my first ever manga, at first I wasn't fond of it as I have never experimented with any type of manga but as the chapters progressed I've learned to love it. This story is very unique and all the characters are so well thought of. I'm a romantic comedy type and this fits my preference perfectly. I suggest all those who love a bit of drama, romance and a good laugh to read this because believe me I will never regret starting it. I'm hoping this series continues on for a long time. As for the art choice of this manga it is astonishingly amazing! One of the best in fact, I'm in hope... See full review
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.See full review
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. That being... See full review
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
This is the story of a 15 years old princess that married a.....160 years old guy (pretty handsome)...that doesn't have wear his head...it's one of my favorites manga. It's VERY cute and quiet funny.I really enjoyed it and if you like romance this is the best manga for you! At first I was like "NO HEAD wtf with this plot" BUT ITS AWESOME seriously if you like romance/cute you HAVE TO READ IT!!!!!!! <3 The characters' personalities are very interesting and the art style is good.so...I can say that it's the best CUTE romance story EVER!!!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.
A lot of people probably underestimate it this manhwa because of it's real. It describes a very real situation of a very fat student. Of course it shows him getting bullied. 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.See full review
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
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
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.See full review
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
This manga is written masterfully so far. It is very deep and has a lot of drama. You really feel for the characters and I think it would be a great read for anyone who enjoys historical romance stories with lots of drama. I started off liking it emensely and the exchange between the princess Aki and her "barbarian" slave Hakusei is cute, natural, and enjoyable. The drama was understandable and enjoyable as well. However, even though I gave this story a 8.5 based on it's true merit which even I can see, I have begun to have an issue with the story. My issue is that I personally... See full review
Thinking that this series has received pretty decent ratings from different sites, and coming from Wixia. I felt that I would end up liking this series, however after reading 13 chapters, I have been disappointed. So far, the story has focused on training, not the game, but practice! I do not mind stories that focus on practice, but this is too much. I bet someone might insist that I keep reading, but if it does not catch my attention after 10 chapters, and there is no rising tension.See full review
This is a really kind story even if it has so many action and drama scenes. The romance is very subtle and delcate, as if their romance is whispered to the reader. Prohibited love doesn't look repulsive at all but totally unfair and tragic. I believe one very important part is the softness on the drawings. Angels always look very pure and powerful. Chihaya, being the only black angel is the only one that looks innocent and kind, giving a very interesting contrast. Characters are always growing which makes a delightful experience to see them gradually change. Overall this story is great even if you don't... See full review
Zettai Heiwa Daisakusen is a manga that is fairly short in length and would be better if it was even shorter. However, I am not saying that I dislike the idea behind the story, even if it is one that has been used countless times in novels, anime, and manga. The problem here is that some of the cute things in the story, become boring when done continually over and over and the pacing is horrible. No I am not being overly critical. The story could actually have gotten a decent score out of me if it just cut through the repetitive crap and didn't spend 1/2 of each... See full review
This story is so cute! It's about a messy boy and a girl who loves to make evrything neat. The girl used to be made fun of for her habits, and she tried to never show her true thoughts afterwards. She succeeded, but she made no friends. Until she talks to the hopeless boy who sits next t he in class.See full review
I really loved this. It was so awesome. It was almost like that main character was Naruto except with more knowledge, and things go right for him. I love how he uses his past knowledge to help his peers even the ones he did not know well in his previous life. Although I think that insted of liking who he likes he should like a different person(or at least that's who I ship him with. I would recommend this manga to everyone. It is such a good read.See full review
I'm sorry I couldn't give another rating but a 10, because is what I really felt when I finished this shoujo manga. Before anything else, I have to confess I thought it was so cliché when I watched the anime, but in the end it just invited me to continue reading the manga. So I did. It took me two days to finish the anime and manga (yes I was so into the story). The most incredible thing about this manga is how the characters develop, how they grow up, and the change in their personalities comparing them to how they start off, and in the end. The male protagonist, Kou, I have to say he surprised me... See full review

What I have to say about this story: This manga is the epitome of Traditional Shoujo Romance all the way down to the finest detail. That being said, the story is full of overly done character introductions, extremely cliche and over dramatized situations, steriotypical main character types which includes but is not limited to: the naive princess, the pirate, the overprotective palace guard, and the superpowered strong silent type guy. There's even a reverse harem (of sorts) pining after the same woman. So yeah.... if traditional shojo romance is your thing, you will... See full review
The premise is this story is is not really original. It involves a two strangers who were arranged to marry each other due to some cockamamie reason. Predictably, they don’t get along at first but eventually fall in love. Also, unsurprisingly, there is drama along the way. Despite this, the story is actually a pretty good read. It’s a light read that has a little bit of mystery, tragedy, comedy,smut and a whole lot of romance, drama, and anguish. As a whole, the biggest con were the characters themselves. I have a sort of love/hate feeling towards the main characters Hokuto and Chiwa. ... See full review
After reading the first volume of this series I thought 'hey, this could be a fun series to read. A nice, simple who-dunnit series ' After the second book I was starting to question just how simple the plot really was. Something about it all seemed to be a bit off. Having just finished the third book, I can safely say this is definitely not a simple plot. Even to the very last page there were plot twists that left me in shock - I could barely keep myself from turning the page. I wont go into too much detail because basically anything I say about it is a spoiler, but this is an absolutely amazing... See full review
Hellper is a totally underrated manwha on this site. As Thor123 pointed out Hellper is HUUGE in Korea, but outside Korea this little gem is mostly unnoticed. Story The story is very shounen-like, the main character has to save his loved one, encounters strong enemies and has to fight but he keeps his own good morals and honor no matter what happens. But it works because it is done so well, the action is great, the comedy is funny and the story draws you in wondering what will happen next without getting too predictable. I also like how the author switches between Hell and the world of the... See full review
I'm not into S/M and dominance sexual relationships. Freedom, communication, love and understanding is the thing that makes my motor move, so I do feel I can't extpress and understand the feelings of sadist dominator and its masochist slave. The only thing I can't complain on this manga is the excellent and erotic drawings. Which were made with incredible quality. Pretty recomended if you are into this type of kinks. So this manga has 3 story, two of them connected about a submissive teacher and his master student, two students in love and a traumatized bully student and his target teacher. The story...

I'm not going to make this a long review. For now I just wanted to say that i love that each chapter ends with some humor. As previous reviewers have mentioned, it really does depend on your sense of humor, and this matches mine completely. I find it completely entertaining, and I can imagine it as an anime. As for the rest...story, art, characters... I don't have much to say in depth. The story is captivating so far. I think the humor keeps me eager to read the next chapters. The art was a little different for me because its not like the mangas I've read (this is my first manwha). The art isn't bad. The... See full review
When it comes to Korean webtoons, Hellper is a bit of an oddball. Although in Korea it's about as popular as Tower of God (a poll on Naver even put Hellper above ToG), it doesn't get much attention outside of Korea. This is painfully clear in the meager 7 ratings this manhwa has at this time, while ToG has about 2000. So now I find myself here, trying to put in words why Hellper is good and why you should read it. The story centers around Jang Gwangnam, leader of Killberos. Killberos is a group made up of gangsters, who were gathered by Gwangnam... See full review
One of my favorites! Plz release new chapters. This manga is about a girl who is shy but is not when she dances and be a boy. She is actually the popular boy,Ai. She meets Hayate,a popular boy(she meets him as a boy) and forms an idol unit when she wanted to defeat Hayate,but ends up forming an idol unit. Hayate actually likes her(Ai Real name:Shizuka Ishiai) -I think he likes her based on clues when the went on a "date".See full review
This review stops at the beginning of chapter 5 because I honestly couldn't waste any more time reading on. I can definitely say this manga is not reverse harem. The relationship is set up to be Aoi and Himari with the other two characters honestly just supporting Aoi. It's all a tad stereotypical. Himari needs to rescued over and over and is thus saved by Aoi over and over and eventually falls in love with the guy. Aoi is, of course, obvlious. Also not too sure why he insists she "not see this form" and even when he kindly asks not to look she's blatantly staring in the next... See full review

This manga is great if you a perv who likes light BDSM or are curious. Also good if you like smut. In my opinion it never goes overbored with its content so read on unafraid. I think it does a good job at covering the feelings of the chacters and why they end up trying things. The main relationship is both cute and agrivating, simply because of how ignorant they are about their own emotions. All in all it you won't want to put it down and even if you arn't into BDSM by the end you will look at the rope in stores just a little bit longer. Art: I personaly thing the art is...

Miriam is an older manga. Just looking at the art you can tell right away. The mangaka who created Miriam made other excellent works like From Far Away. So I was pretty sure that this one would be good and it lived up to my expectations completely. I'd suggest it to any romance reader. This story is a western romance with both action and adventure mixed into it. The romance is slow but it needs to be considering that the main protagonists of the story, are only 8 and 17 years old at the beginning. As they get older this type of age difference isn't a issue but... See full review
Hohzuki Island is a relatively short manga by Kei Sanbe, the guy who also wrote Boku dake ga Inai Machi - which just got an anime this season, but I haven't tried it yet - and Cradle of Monsters, a mediocre zombie-manga about kids trying to survive on a boat.

I love Blue exorcist.
Why you may ask?
Blue Exorcist is sad but funny at the same time.
Most Anime/Manga are serious or just funny
but Blue Exorcist is both.
One minute I would be crying and the next I would be laughing
Rin is just an innocent kid who lost the only family he knew.
The characters are unquie and one of a kind.
Over all a great story.
Honestly speaking, I cannot say enough about this story so far. Some people put it up next to Tokyo Ghoul but to me there is no real comparison. We could talk about similarities. However, in terms of story and character depth, there is no comparisons. They are like from 2 different worlds. The art is okay, but not exceptional. Comparing it to Tokyo Ghoul this is the only place Tokyo Ghoul outshines it at times. However, I also feel it's important to say that like any manga with good art, the creator doesn't skimp on the background art. Although it lacks the type of flare Tokyo Ghoul has, it feels...

This manga has succeeded my expectations. The storyline was very interesting, but predictable. I could always predict what's going to happen after each situation and the relationship between all those characters. The protagonists and the secondary characters were all interesting, funny and lovely. I really liked the art and the personality of the characters, although they are quite stereotyped. What I also loved the most is the princess' growth during her adventures. My first impression of her wasn't bad because she wasn't behaving like a princess who's most of the time obedient and submissive. (I... See full review
I have so far read the 3 volumes that I purchased and I feel that it is important to say the first chapters that I had found online had whole portions were taken out of it. The scans are incomplete and only have 4 chapters anyway. So, basicly if you want to really read this one you will have to buy it or you will have to check it out from some library if they happen to have it... which I doubt. I saw it likened to Berserk so I thought, sure I'll give it a try. However, after reading 3 volumes I would say that suggesting it to be akin to Berserk is an insult to Berserk. In the 3 volumes I...

Horrible. Absolutely horrible. The main character is pretty much raped by Kaoru and starts to develop feelings for him. Finally, THE PERSON SHE LIKED (from the beginning) ASKS HER OUT. Yay!

Osamu Tezuka is widely considered the 'God of Manga' due to high output of work and inescapable influence on the medium. However, due his Disney-esque art style and the fact that his most popular works were primarily marketed to younger audiences, a newcomer could easily be forgiven for thinking his works are largely kiddie fluff. The Book of Human Insects blows any perceptions that Tezuka couldn't handle the heavy stuff to bits, with a story that could stand up to any number of hard-nosed 1970's Hollywood thrillers.

So far these stories are barely frightening, and the few unique stories that are presented never ring as truly chilling. Something is missing from nearly every story that would make it a cohesive scare. There are moments when I felt notes of dread but they quickly faded away when the anti-climactic conclusion had been reached. This is not Itou Junji's horror, or even Fuan no Tane which sometimes manages to be succinct and threatening. Everything is just flat. I have no problem with classic urban legends that we've all read before, but nothing new or interesting has been brought to the table... See full review

So, it's filled with short stories by what I'm assuming is the same author and artis. I like the art, it's simple. I don't love it but at least it didn't make me sad. My favourite of all of them was Sensei+ which started out weird and like it was going nowhere and then ended in this absolute sweet way that just broke my heart. Overall, I liked all of the stories. It's nice to see different characters playing out their various love stories, some leave you with immense cliff hangers others are clear and direct. But I liked the variey and would read it again.
