Rutta to Kodama

Cute storyline, but little to no really interesting plot line. More like short stories going through their high school life. Recommended for those with a sweet tooth!

Gantz

cybermom's avatar By on Oct 19, 2015

Warning: There are some spoilers in this review! Do you like manga that has blackface? CONSTANT mention of rape? unnecessary killing? intense over sexualizing of the female characters, that are only introduced to quickly fall in love with one of the male characters? Then this manga is for you!! When i first started reading Gantz it was pretty good at first, i started noticing the female characters were really oversexualized, (every chapter has a page at the end with one of the female characters either wearing a bikini or nothing at all) so i thought of dropping it, wish i did lmao.

Half & Half (Kouji SEO)

thor123's avatar By on Oct 18, 2015

I don't normally read romance manga, but the synopsis intrigued me and I had read the one-shot already so I decided to give it a go. And boy, was I happy that I did. Story The story starts with a normal guy who dies because of an accident, which also killed a girl. He is then brought to a kind of limbo, where he mysterious voice tells them that he will let one person live as the other dies. They get one week to decide who lives and who dies, and in this week they cannot leave the other's side. Back in the normal world, they notice that even their physical and emotional feelings are shared... man, God... See full review

Naruto

ipreferfoodanyway's avatar By on Oct 17, 2015

Alright, to say I'm a fan of Naruto is an understatement. However, I'm aware of the flaws, and the ups and downs. The only legitament comlaint I've heard about Naruto is that it's too long. That's true. 700 chapters is a lot and there are many more episodes. I will always recommend the manga because the anime has fillers that can and will put people off of watching it. Now, I'm going to do my best NOT to spoil everything but still give a decent review. But, WArning mild SPOILERS.  Right, you can read the basic synopsis somewhere else so I'm going to jump right in. The Naruto experience... See full review

From Far Away

Desarray's avatar By on Oct 12, 2015

From Far Away (Or, Kanata Kara, if you prefer) was exactly what I expected it to be. Schoolgirl ends up in a strange world not knowing why or how she gets there. Man appears. They become companions. Great battle occurs. That alone, is extremely ordinary. And, I loved it. Although it was rather predictable at times, it was charming, and sweet. The art is absolutely beautiful, and the backgrounds were not lacking. The story had it's own unique little twists, and although I knew how it would end, (Good trumps evil, yada yada yada), I throughly enjoyed the ride until the very end.  If you're on the...

Tenshi no Kyuu

Inkmonkey's avatar By on Oct 11, 2015

This more or less an ode to heavenly derrieres and the people that love them. There is essentially no story. A girl with a butt the size of Jupiter (heavenly body, geddit?) breaks his arm with it (that is, the butt), then proceeds to nurse him back to health. They have sex, fall in love, live happily ever after, like he always dreamed they would. I'm biased of course, because I too am a devotee of de glutes and also quite enjoyed the plentiful camel toes scattered throughout, but this is plain old smut without any pretense of being art or, you know, logically coherent. In other words, exactly as...

Watching TV All The Time Makes You Stupid

Inkmonkey's avatar By on Oct 11, 2015

Despite the cover image, this storyline does not in fact sexually exploit mental illness. It features a day in the life of a severely psychologically disturbed agoraphobic girl: she meets her new counsellor; she also receives a visit from a man purportedly her friend, who comes over to have sex with her, give her some money, and reinforce her agoraphobia; and she attempts to overcome her problem. The ending is vague, almost off-putting, but the storyline is engaging right up to that point.

Honestly i was kinda bored when i picked this. The whole yakuza themes were kinda boring and i still dont get why was everybody in love with that guy and i honestly don see why kumi would end up with him. Oh and the american guys was freaking annoying. Yet i really liked the sex scenes haha  specially the firsy one although the guy was too girly for my taste.

Tokyo Ghoul - JACK

CassieFleurs's avatar By on Oct 10, 2015

I was certanly speckting more about arimas past, being it a prequel and spin off of his life but ididnt really learn  much about him, how  he is or his past, we dont even have him as the protagonist really so the whole thing was basically as a flahsback. I really loved minami and the scene where he attacked arima was wonderful and we could see insight on such a talented student being a ghoul.

Bloody Monday

thor123's avatar By on Oct 10, 2015

Since this manga only has positive reviews so far, I figured it was time for a less positive one (I dropped this at 6/11 volumes). This review will contain spoilers of those 6 volumes. Most people who will read this review have probably watched or read Death Note, one of the biggest gateway-manga/anime lately (and also one of my first manga). Lots of people liked the "battles of the mind" in that series (as did I), and especially the battle between Kira and L were well-received. Now, meet Bloody Monday, a manga that seems to have tried to become a second Death... See full review

Shimoko's avatar By on Oct 4, 2015

It was hilarious, but I feel like the author forgot about the plot of the story just to have fun shipping the couple that she admitted was not planned to be the main couple. So I'm pretty sure this is mostly a comedy manga just for fun, I think some author notes even said she just wanted to doodle some dicks for the lulz. There's still some drama and plot though, for sure.  It's been about a year since I read this so sorry if I forget details. Also never done a review before.

I am the kind of guy who is always looking forward to read some amazing stories, and when I read manga like these I just wonder how a guy sitting inside a room on a chair is able to produce a total different world just through his/her mind blowing imagination. I have great respect for author like these.

Vinland Saga

[Slightly Edited From My MAL Review]
"God's divine creation is so brimming with love... and yet there is no love in the hearts of men." -Canute Philosophical brooding, barbarous violence, political intrigue, and the stubborn refusal of hope to roll over and die no matter how dark the age- all in a beautifully drawn package. Makoto Yukimura delievers a prime example of the heights sequential art can reach. (Can you tell that I'm into this series?)

This series is brutal and it's mature, but those two things are not the same. There's no shortage of graphic carnage and... See full review

Dear Mine

pitypancake's avatar By on Sep 29, 2015

Part of the reason I'm writing a review is that this manga doesn't have a synopsis at the time of me reading it, so here is the story in a nutshell! Story: Dear Mine is a very cute manga about a 15 year old girl named Satoko who loves cooking, and lives alone with her mother in an apartment after her father died some years ago. One day her mother aquires a large debt, and 10 year old Fuuma, who runs the Wakadera company, saves them. Satoko's mother used to be Fuuma's father's secretary, and one day, Satoko's mother and Fuuma's father decided to have Fuuma and Satoko marry when they got older. So Satoko and... See full review

Story: I am a complete sucker for revenge games. Or survival games. Or stuff where you have to kill your own friends and classmates or know what? Call it Battle Royale. This story, is mainly the first one with a dash of the third, minus the wanton brutal butchering. But I digress, I forgot the point I'm making. Probably a- oh, right, "Revenge Game". Nevermind. As the title implies, revenge happens. In a "game" format. But it's mostly revenge, where a bullied rich boy who was bullied gets his revenge on his bullies. Hence, the title. There are no "Saw" or "Hostel"... See full review

Bokko is a manga about war, and strategies in war.
Story 6.5/10: Bokko tells the story of Kakuri, a man of the Bokk-clan. This is a clan of people who despise war, and they have been trained as both martial artists and strategists in war. When a city is in danger, they request the help of the people of Bokk to protect their city. This is also where the manga starts: Kakuri goes to the city of Ryo to help protect it. What follows is about 4 volumes in which we are introduced to the principles of the Bokk-clan, and we are shown how good Kakuri is as both a strategist/leader and a soldier. We... See full review

First as a disclaimer, I read through this manga quickly meaning that I did skip some sections of dialogue. Therefore I should not be viewed as an expert of the work in any way. Let's also clear up that you should not approach this manga if you uncomfortable with sexual content, harassment, or imagined rape scenes. That said, you should also not approach this manga only for the sexual content or else you will be given much more than you expected. It is tagged physiological for a reason, and let me tell you, it soon becomes a wild ride of feels. Also, the sexual content is not that graphic. The art is... See full review

Shiro no Koukoku Monogatari is a manga that I treasure. Yes, the art and the characters may seem pretty normal'ish and the manga is not very long, I will always have a smile on my face when I see the cover picture of it on my phone or pc. The story is amazing to me, I got a bit teary eyed, I admit when reading through this. That’s the main thing that I try to access whether a manga is good or not. If it can evoke so much emotion that I can't hold back a tear or two then I know from my heart that this manga is one of a kind. You may not like it, after all we all have unique tastes, but for me, I will... See full review

After going back 3 times, I can still say that it's as great as on my first time experiencing it. Story and characters The greatness of this series is built around a simple premise, which might sound familiar to those who have watched Death Parade: people who died, and remember or talk about their lives. When you die, you meet God, who will lead you to your reincarnation. On the way there, he will talk to you, to judge you or just to hear your... See full review

Hmm. Koi Kaze is a rare treat of a manga. It pushes boundaries, but in a realistic bittersweet way. It is hard to not root for Koshiro and Nanoka. However you can feel the confliction they bare in their respective minds about their growing feelings. I have read a few incest themed manga in the past, so I feel quite confident in saying that Koi Kaze has the most plausibility out of the bunch. My only gripe is about the ending. I wished it had been developed more. I can't say anymore without spoiling it. Tehe

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.

Toraneko's avatar By on Sep 12, 2015

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.

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.

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?"
