It's hard to believe this was Kentaro Miura's original style! Berserk has become so detailed and wild, with such a rich story and characters, compared to Futatabi which exudes 80's manga general style.
While the story is not particularly amazing, it follows some of the tendencies from american comic of that moment.
You can already observe him developing his first big and detailed backgrounds, and also characters that try to scape to a more westernized look.
This is a short, and essentially rather simple story at its heart, but my word, it is wonderful. 'The Gods Lie' is the story of 11 year old Natsuru Nanao, a football loving boy who has just moved to a new town with his mother, and Rio Suzumura, the tallest girl in their sixth grade class. Natsuru's football team has just accquired a new coach whom he dislikes, and in addition to this, he has been outcasted by one of the girls because he rejected one of them on Valentine's day, whereas Suzumura is isolated from everyone because of the secrets she carries- starting with the fact that she and her little...

This is by far one of my favorites. When I first started reading it, I thought it was going to be one of those works that never explains any of its mysterious aspects and just expects the reader to forget about any plot holes. However this is NOT one of those series. All of the mysterous things and plot points get explained as the story goes on, and in a way that doesn't feel forced. It's nicely paced, with unique characters that each get their own back story explained at a time when it makes sense for the plot. The plot is not predictable, you never really know what's going to happen next, but it never... See full review
Although I'm usually a big fan of Shinjo Mayu's work, Haou Airen really was not one that I could like, let alone enjoy. The characters fall in love way too quickly, especially Hakuron, who kidnaps Kurumi Akino in the first few chapters to come to Hong Kong. Disillusioned for pretty much the whole manga of the concept of love, Kurumi Akino constantly debates and questions both her love and his love for her. Scenes of consensual rape, murder, and violence are shown throughout the manga, so this is definitely not for the light-hearted romantic type of readers. Hakuron is seen at one point trying to leave the... See full review
Wolf Children was a movie I loved. So when I saw the manga at chapters, I immediately bought it. The story did not disappoint me at all. It is the same as the movie. It made me cry, just like I had cried after watching the movie. The art is stunning. The artist drew the characters to fit perfectly with the story. In fact, I personally think the art in the manga is better than in the story. The characters are amazing, but I gave it a 9/10 because of Ame's decision. Overall, if you are a fan of wolf children, I would definitely recommend this. If you plan on buying it, buy the hard copy... See full review
Hideo Yamamoto sucessfully created a story that explores the hollowness of humanity and how it damages people turning them into souless/shallow beings. A gripping manga with a very interesting premise. Not something for the faint of heart, as the story deals with mature themes such as violence, rape, and major psychological issues that the characters had to deal with throughout. It is an intense manga with a blend of mystery, horror, and drama. It also explores the fragility of humans, and how it expresses itself as "homunuculi" or in the form of monsters that is hidden in the... See full review

ヽ(≧Д≦)ノ <I WANT MORE! I decided to start reading this as it reminds me of Sword Art Online (the names tho, rly) and I am currently waiting for more chapters to appear in this light novel based manga and have resorted to read the actual light novel due to my lack of patience (^^;). At the time of writing this review this manga only has 1 volume and 6 chapters. The light novel I am reading has 8+ volumes and 316+ chapters (the english translated one only has like 30 chapters at the moment), so the manga should have... See full review
Honestly, this is my favorite light novel. I really the anime and I saw some of the novels in a bookstore near where I live so I thought what the heck? and I bought 'em. My expectations were around 6.5 or 7,I'd place the anime around 7 or 7.5, but I thought a book wouldn't really capture the action and character interaction as well. boy was I wrong. Story: The story takes place in a technologically advanced city full of different kinds of schools, appropriately named academy city. In this city students are taught to use psychic abilities. They are ranked levels 0 to 5, five being the strongest and zero... See full review
Two words: ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE.
If you read the summary your impression will surely be that this manga is not a remarkable one. Just another one you'll read which plot you'll be able to anticipate to the point there's no excitement nor whatsoever... Well, let me tell you, you're all wrong.
It does starts being a cheesy, lovely and most of all, adorable story with some points of drama. However, as you advance, as you read the plot becomes dark, tragic and twisted. Out of all the characters, the most remarkable are Inori, Yuki and, of course, the alien. These three are more than what they seem at first... See full review
I felt disgusted while reading this manga. Basically the main character, Hana, is raped and fucked against her will throughout the whole story. You CAN'T read a page without finding, at least, a maleness comment. The male lead is a possesive maniac who treats Hana like a sex toy and opress her to the point she blames herself for THE SLIGHTLEST SILLY THING like, for instance, cooking or colapsing at school. I HATED IT.See full review
Boku Girl is the first manga created by Sugito Akira, I think he has done exceptionally well, perhaps to make a good impression or something. I have just finished reading the final chapter to this manga and now completely believe that this is how a gender-bender manga should be done, this is how you do it!
The story in Boku Girl is quite generic where a guy turns into girl and awkward moments with friends and family and the rest of society pop up throughout the series. The story is focusing on the romance between... See full review
Buso Renkin is a really fun manga, not because the story is especially good (though it's not the worst I've read by far), but due to the comedy (which is brilliantly funny at times) and the memorable protagonists throughout the series. Firstly, Kazuki. Though rather generic himself, he's fun to read about because of his interactions with others and how he effects them. Tokiko on the hand is a wonderful character in her own right, with a brilliant catchphrase ('I'll splatter your guts!') and all the aggression to back it up. The fact that to discover her full backstory you have to read a not so great second... See full review

This is amazing. Sweet and adorable and I would read it over and over. The character are funny and end up being deeper than you would think for something so short. I would love this to continue. Even after the couple gets together the story is endearing and funny. I must find more like this :)See full review
Makoto Yukimura delivers a strong performance in his first major work in a rather down-to-earth sci-fi story covering the lives of garbagemen IN SPACE.
STORY There's relatively little plot here, at least in the sense of big, overarcing events that the cast reacts to. The lives of the characters take center stage. That's not to say there are no developments or ongoing storylines, it's just that events don't drive this series but rather the characters do. There is a strong recurring theme of what the social, political, and personal ramifications of humanity starting to truly take its first steps away... See full review
It was really funny and cute I love the triangle the characters are in and their personalities just make it so much more enjoyable. Definitely two thumbs up.See full review
STORY: The idea behind this manga's story is not bad. It's actually pretty unique. If the story was presented right and it was blessed with a less retarded translator it could have came out more than decent... unfortunately this wasn't the case. So because of the crappy childish translator, the oneshot does things that no actual professional writer in literature of any kind would do. What the translator does is force readers to listen to their personal opinions and genralisations about the story's content during the stories beginning and ending as if it was part of the manga itself. It's not... See full review
In the fan fiction world, there is a phrase "plot, what plot?" And I think it applies to this one shot rather well. The premise is that the two men have been friends for 14 years, and friends-with-benefits for about 5 years. And that's about it. Story: It's the sex scene from every yaoi without the courtship or drama. (Sarcastic Hurray!) Ok, there's a little drama since one of the guys doesn't really consider himself gay, but it's never really played out. Maybe if it had been longer, it would have had some depth. Art: it's not the greatest, and I've seen better yaoi out there, but... See full review
SPOILER FREE REVIEW For those who are considering reading it or just checking it out. //IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a review coming from a fan of the manga and its creator (Kusanagi Mizuho). Although some parts may be a little opinionated, I will try my best to make this review as unbiased as possible.

They set out on a journey to find the legendary dragons to help save and restore peace to Kouka.  ... See full review
Story The first four chapters of this manga are domestic slice of life stories that are connected to each other. The first chapter deals with a couple losing their beloved dog (and if you ever owned a dog or any other kind of pet for that matter, you will cry). The second chapter takes place a year later when the same couple takes in a skittish cat. They continue to bond with the cat (as well as several other things I won't mention) in chapter 3, and in chapter 4, the couple's niece in thrown into the mix. The four chapters are nicely written and will appeal to animal... See full review
Yes, there are quite a bit of chapters but the story line is wonderful, the relationships are solid, the metaphors are clear and consistent, the characters are really well done! I strongly recommend this manga! Seeing how many people have viewed it so far is very sad and it definitely deserves MUCH MUCH MORE! Please read it when you get the chance! Full thing is on Kiss Manga! The story basically looks like a HUGE love triangle but it's nothing like that?? I guess it's hard to get describe!

I don't know it feel's unfinished, sorta, but that by no means makes it a bad read. It really does have a good background, story and some repetative flashbacks but the overall story, the fights, the characters are all interesting and the actual story is fresh. Like i first mentioned though the end seems like it wants to continue, but it doesn't. Your left feeling good but slightly empty. I would most definately recommend reading this, multiple times if you want.See full review
Before i say anything else, i first have to say that i feel like the creator was rushing when creating this story. There are giant time holes that aren't filled with anything. From one to another chapter suddenly everything is different, mainly the relationship between the main characters since you don't really see that develop it is just there all of the sudden. Even though everything is rushed and not explained as well as they could have done. The storyline itself and the idea are very interesting and original. It was short but still managed to move me quite a bit for the little that was... See full review
If you like reading depressing psycho stories this manga is right up your ally. Complete with attempted suicides, rape, joking about family suicide, gory killings and a plethora of mental issues to severe degrees. Personally, I HATE suicide themes so it was very difficult to give this manga a fair shake... that being said... I did complete it and for the sake of a more impartial review I will stop speaking about things that upset me personally and get into the good and bad others may see in this manga.

Overall: AdorableAdorable The storyline did drag out a little bit after about halfway maybe a little further BUT.. The manga itself is short enough for you not to notice. The typical mix ups happen, but I like how slowly the story progresses, it makes all of the outcomes that much sweeter and more enjoyable It kept me interested through the whole story, I'd recommend it!See full review
This manga did not live up to the one shot. Just read the one shot and be done with it. Granted, it's hard to live up to perfection, but still. Actually it fell way short. Koe no Katachi squandered such incredible potential that I can't help but get mad at it far more than any mediocre, or even bad, series. It could have been amazing, but in the end it was just infuriating. But the beginning was just so damn good. *SPOILERS AHEAD* (not like they matter when nothing comes of it) Lets forget about how annoying Tomohiro is. Let's forget about how boring making a movie is. Lets forget about how one... See full review
I LOVED this manga. If you're looking for a super sappy romance manga, you found it. My BF caught me reading it, and judged me. I totally enjoyed reading this, and every night when I got home from work, it was the first thing I popped up on my phone. Very addicting. The storyline throws you through many twists and turns, and it constantly keeps you on the edge of your seat. The cliffhangers are a KILLER. If you like romance, and cheekiness, you'll love this.See full review
Main character is our typical gutlles Japanese college guy who who carries his virginity on his face but still gets a harem. Story ending is a bit incomplete. Every other character except pur main character is good. Infact remove the main character and the story will be much better.

Taiyou no Ie is a beautiful manga that will make you cry tears of joy, tears of laughter, and plain old tears of sadness. It has great humor, adorable moments between characters, and tear-jerking encounters that will leave you waiting for more. The story is nothing too new- a highschool girl (Mao) moves in with an old childhood friend of hers- a guy, 8 years older than her, whom she has a crush on. She, of course, eventually confesses to him, and is rejected- but of course, throughout the manga, the subject of her affections (Hiro) finds that he doesn't want other guys approaching her cute self. . .

This manga is a really wonderful story that makes history more fun to read about, since it is toold from charaacters that are living in that time. I will not spoil this Manga for anyone because it is really worth the time to read it. i read this manga over and over again and still find it so interesting to read.

Story This manga is the story of a girl who falls in love with a mangaka. While the plot is nothing particularly groudbreaking, I did find it to be cute, funny, and enjoyable. Though there are several shoujo cliches, this manga does them well and even seems to be self aware of it. Art The art isn't great, but it isn't terrible either. It does it's job, but not much more. The character designs are fine, but the lack of backgrounds and the occasional use of stick figures (though to be fair, those were comedy relief scenes) hurts it. Characters I... See full review
This manga is a total waste of time, luckly it's short. However, If you want to read a revenge driven or action/martial arts story look to the recommendations here that are made for other similar manga. just move along. This one's not worth it.

Story: The story is not new. "Falling in love with the same person all over again thanks to time travel" can be seen in other manga and anime (like Kamisama Hajimemashita). But it is wonderfully told, nonetheless. Itsuka Koi ga Kanau Made is probably one of the reasons I love anime and manga with time travelling elements. Art: I don't really love the art, but I think it is quite okay. Characters: The characters were constructed to start as simple, but as the manga goes on we discover the complexity within their personalities. We see these things unfold as we get to the end.See full review
Story: Let me take this straight, it is like a Romeo and Juliet story which however, happens in school (Towa is a delinquent while Mikado is the student council president) and they're both guys! Still, the balance of comedy and romance in the story makes it very, very lovable and definitely not forgettable. Art: I have to admit, I know a Sakuraga Mei manga when I see one. Why? Because her art style is so distinct and unforgettable!

Story Okay, So this manga may not be so great if your looking to read something with a in depth story. However, the little episodic stories within are at times cute and at other times disturbing. Id say this would go down easy for someone who didn't like to read. Mainly because there are barely any words. I want to call it a bunch of small interlinking light stories but because of the nudity and some of the things the cats do which are borderline gross, I can't really say it's a light read either. What I can say about this manga is that it is unique. It's rare to find a manga about a girl getting... See full review
Tenshi Nanka ja Nai is one of my favorite mangas I've ever read, and I've read it about 20 times. The story is filled with humor, friendship, and relationships that really connect to the reader and make the manga a really heart-warming read. That's not to say the story is just a shoujo comedy. It gets serious and downright heart-wrenching as complications are introduced slowly and steadily in all relationships brought into the story. The artwork definitely is unique and something that really attracted me to this manga, but once you meet Midori, you fall in love with her, and then in love with... See full review
Story This manga is basically about the daily life of a crazy, frequently naked woman and her cat. To be honest, nothing much happens. The woman's antics are a bit amusing and this manga does get some points for uniqueness, but there is very little text and not much of a plot. Art The art is for the most part very detailed and quite nice looking. However, it loses a few points due to the fact that the female characters look a bit too much alike.

This manga is very enjoyable to read, and has lots of new intesting ideas that I personally have not seen in a while. I do think that this is a very under-rated manga that is worth reading. The main character is loveable, and interesting. Not only that with the way they potray him he can do almost anything he sets his mind to. One last thing to add into my review is that if you dont enjoy overpowered characters you might not like this so much; although I recommend you give this a try.See full review

I admit that the story felt very weird in the beginning, but as more information was given I became absorbed and began thinking about real "what if" scenarios and also about the underlying message behind the story. It's definitely a deep story.

This manga really was a roller coaster. I had so many different emotions. I feel like this is the best Yaoi manga that I ever laid my eyes on. The ending had me in tears (T-T) LITERALLY!!! There are a lot of twists and turns. You may get confused in the beginning, but trust me you'll understand the further you read it. I just want to give a round of applause for the person who created this masterpiece. Great plot. Great characters. Perfect settings. AMAZING ENDING (T-T). 10/10.

This is the tale of how a thousand Japanese business men became sexually confused by twin boys that were dressed like girls... Not that this is anything new. I'm looking at you, Black Butler anime adaptation. But if your sitting there wondering "Is it even worth reading this?", I'll try and help you out.

This manga was not the typical type I would read but it's always nice to branch out and try new things at times... In this review I will tell you first what I think of it outside of personal feelings and then I will write my own personal thoughts at the bottom. This manga is cute at many points in the story, but it's also rediculously unoriginal. The Idol thing and even the twin idol thing has been done tons of times... However, it does have some parts of originality sprinkled in between the cliche. I'd give the story a 6. This is because, although it is unoriginal it was delivered fairly well, it... See full review

I am a huge fan of the High Stakes Game genre. The psychological struggles and battles of wits commonly present in these stories are fun to watch and, when done well, create an engrossing atmosphere. A major sub-genre of this would be the Death Game, where the cast is more or less forced into a scenario where they compete against one another, are driven to the brink and ultimately die off one by one. The premise, setup and general execution of all stories from this genre are typically the same, and Doubt is no exception. A cast (size doesn't matter, though it works better with fewer characters) of... See full review
