When I first looked at the title as well as the summery of this manga on Mangafox I'll admit I was a bit skeptical. It seemed like it would be....well, stupid in all honesty, that or just a little to weird for my tastes. But then I started to read, and then I read a little more, and then a little more, and within a night I had come to find I had read all 95 chapters that had been translated and waiting for the next release!I had come to find that I was in love with the story, compared to the other things that I had started reading it was actually unique, different. In a way it reminded me of Pokemon, the... See full review

One Piece

Aug 17, 2010

Story: For a long time I put off watching the anime of One Piece because, although it sounded fun, it was just too damn long and the thought of watching three hundred plus episodes was a bit daunting. However I soon gave in and became quickly addicted, devouring the now four hundred instalments in fairly quick succession. Then, while suffering from withdrawal from a nightly dose of my favourite pirates – and against my bank balance’s better judgement – I decided to pick up the manga. Fifty-four volumes later and I can now barely wait for the next part to come out here in the... See full review

Love Roma

Lewa's avatar
Aug 17, 2010

I loved this manga. I have read a lot of stuff, at least in my eyes, over the past 1-2 years. And by far, this is a true romantic comedy. There isn't any focus on fan service or anything other than the story and characters. The whole romance was based on the two main characters (the male reminding me much of myself) understanding each other. Even though it looks less real than a lot of other manga, the story is much more real. I found myself laughing, going "Aww thats cute", and saying "Indeed". Recommend this definitely.

Death Note

Aug 16, 2010

Story: Death Note had an interesting and unique enough premise. A highly intelligent but bored teenager finds a notebook that can kill anyone who's name is written into it as long as the owner knows the name and face of who he wants dead. There are plenty more rules involved with using the notebook but that's the main one to know. The teen, nicknamed Kira, uses the notebook to kill criminals causing the police to get involved to stop him. The rest involves basically a cat-and-mouse chase to see whether Kira or L, a mastermind detective, and the police force will win out. The story started off refreshingly... See full review

So far, after reading the first 8 volumes, I am really enjoying this series. It's well written by Gosho Aoyama, and the artwork's inventive as well. What really stands out though are the numerous ways found to kill characters in interesting and inventive ways.I've long been a fan of murder mysteries, especially the short fiction which has been gracing the pages of pulp magazines such as Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine for several decades. So it should come as no surprise then that I love this series, as it's a full series of people getting axed (pardon the pun).I am reading the series as published by... See full review

Kare no Satsujin Keikaku

Aug 8, 2010

When I read the description for Kare no Satsujin Keikaku, I knew I had to read it. Being an aspiring seinen manga-ka, I had once drafted a story very similar in premise to this one-shot-- it was about a high school boy, happy with his life and quite "normal", who wanted to experience what it was like to kill someone. I had never heard of Kare no Satsujin Keikaku, although I had figured my idea wasn't completely original.Anyways, I was very happy with this manga. It brought up some interesting questions-- what do killers want others to think of them after they have committed their crimes? and who... See full review

Absolute Boyfriend

Story: Absolute Boyfriend is about a high school chick who is so desperate for a boyfriend that she actually buys one from a questionable catalogue and winds up with a "perfect" boyfriend who happens to be a robot, and of course, complication and drama ensues. Frankly, this story was fairly mediocre in plot. The plain, average girl has two guys madly in love with her for some non-stated reason even though she's pretty selfish, not smart, and is quite annoying. That said, the one reason that I rated this as high as I did is because the story kept me guessing. It's crazy, actually somewhat funny... See full review

I want to start off by just how much a masterpiece this manga is. Jin Kobayashi really outdid himself with this. i found the characters to be the strongest point of the series, i rarely find myself connecting so well with fictional characters, it was as if they all somehow reflected a part of myself (although i guess results may vary). Jin's tastful way of making this a humerous experience without appealing to peoples libido (having next to no fanservice or other "ecchi" scenes or themes) does also make a good impression and overall make this a quality manga for quality people.

Might cause spoilerI'll get to the detail straightaway. I totally love the idea of this manga but when i finished reading, it's not as good as I thought it would. Nudity- The first one is they don't give the proper age rating for this. Is it just onemanga or what? I don't know but if they gonna show Dorothy's left breast at least put some warning in.Battle- Too short. It seems that they win so easily. We can already guess the outcome so it won't be as interesting.Characters- Why would Ian wear a mask when his face is all good? I thought he would be all scar-ish but his face is as smooth as ever...

LOST, as we find a group of people lost in a mysterious forest surrounded by unusual monsters, they quickly realize the need to work together in order to survive all the adversities, in the end I think it's a neat survival tale.

The basis for School Days if you haven't read/seen/played it, it's pretty much about the main leads. Makoto, Kotonoha, and Sekai. Makoto likes Kotonoha. the basis of the manga revolves around them. but, Sekai likes Makoto! the basis is really will Makoto end up with Kotonoha, or Sekai? I'm not going to spoil the ending, but the ending is dark. this is not your everyday shoujo. i saw the anime first, and the art changes between the anime and the manga. the anime has ecchi-type animation to it. the manga however, the characters don't have this ecchiness to them, and i prefer the art over the anime...

Why was her last name different from Miwako? How did Happy Berry come to be? Fortunately, the mangaka's earlier work proved that, even in a more traditional shoujo setting, she can bring a novel look at romance and high school awash with delightful characters.Though it takes place in the same setting as its sequel, Yazawa Arts Academy, it kicks off with a more straightforward and less surreal arc that focuses on the relationship between...

STORY: 6.5/10 “How did they make Go so exciting?” is the refrain whenever someone starts talking about “Hikaru no Go.” I was tired of hearing it ages before I started the first volume. But that doesn't mean it's not true; despite being based around a quiet, contemplative game of tactical maneuvering, this is an action-packed series. Shindo Hikaru is a typical shonen-manga punk kid protagonist with a mother he disrespects and a school career he couldn't care less about. But his life gets a shot in the arm when he discovers an old  goban, or Go board, in his... See full review

This manhwa (basically a Korean manga) was very twisty, and sometimes agonizongly slow at parts, but when you are (finally) finished, you look back and realize that you've learned something new.The main characters are typical, in my opinion. There's Haji Kang, which in Korean (this manhwa's original languange), basically equates to "dog". As a child, Haji was a weak little girl. Her brothers constantly bullied her with their fighting skills they learned during lessons. She ran to her friend Te Hu Kang, who calls her a "dog".

Together they play the role of the opposite gender without being found out by others. They make new friends and meet people who are intrigued and people who are disgusted by their gender shifting wishes. But the two cant stop time, and their bodies mature, causing them more worries. It is a sweet and cute story that is worth reading.

There are plenty of twists to keep the story exciting and some very amusing and unpredictable scene. It can be a bit cloying at times but not enough to bring down the series. Even older people might find it very enjoyable. However, the action scenes are a little disappointing but, what can I say, action isn't really a... See full review

However, in this story lies something far greater than can be imagined, something a lot of us humans tend to forget or even neglect. The meaning of Love. We forget that love is the strongest force there is in this world, but after reading this thoroughly in one sitting, I believe I'll never forget how much we should all cherish love.The story is about a young boy...

It was ridiculous and over-the-top which worked for the most part since it kept the series, which really lacked in substantial plot, from becoming dull and predictable. However, the entirety of the series was lackluster and not really highly memorable. It was entertaing but nothing truly noteworthy. Art: The character design looked... See full review

It's not your typical boy's love manga. Instead of what you'd expect, a couple of hot guys struggling with their relationship, rather it's one hot guy with a strange streak of sadism and a long-lasting affection for his crush from childhood, who isn't so hot. While it seems a bit childish in backgrounds, the actual art of important areas is well done. Also, the story is cute and serious enough to keep you waiting for more. All in all, it's worth checking out.

From the creators of Yu Yu Hakasho comes a beautiful story of friendship, determination, overcoming obsticals, and making the best of the worst. The characters are wonderfully developed by the situations they are presented in and you will be rooting for them throughout the story. My personal favorite since I've read it, and continue to.

The story changes depending on the subject matter of each chapter but the characters create a witty and funny experience for the individual subject. If you enjoy laughing at other peoples' and societies obvious mistakes presented in dry humor, you are sure to enjoy this manga.

Gravitation EX

Here's my review on the sequel of the original comical manga Gravitation, Gravitation Extra/Genzo. *sighs*   Story: It is the continuation of the first Gravi, but it seems to focus more on the relationships of Yuki and Shuichi, instead of both the band side and romance aspect, which is fine I suppose but it doesn't make much sense. *spoilers* Ryuichi loves Shuichi? WTF? He seems to like him platonically, not romanticaly in the original. and Tohma is super obssesive over Yuki again? >___< The non romantic plotlines with Kitazawa's son, Riku and Ryuichi are interesting...

Story: The plot seemed decent at first glance. However, everything about this manga boiled down to a typical, generic shoujo storyline. Trait 1: Plain average girl who is fairly kind but lacks any other distinguishing trait garners the love and attention from the school's hot shots aka the guys all the girls love. Trait 2: She gets the mean eye from the model in class who's jealous of her because the love of her life likes the main female instead of herself. Trait 3: Everyone, and I mean everyone, has to love the girl because she's just so sweet. Yeah, the main line was extremely predicatable and... See full review

A Cat that Loved a Fish

A Cat That Loved A Fish is a heart warming tale about forbidden love. The short romantic story starts off with the apparence that a couple in love are admiring fish in an aquarium. In actual fact they are brother and sister. The story goes on to talk about desires and longings for things such as wings from the characters (nameless). Overall it's a good read.

Apocalypse Meow

In the tradition of Maus I & II: A Survivor's Story, My Father Bleeds History (by Art Spiegelman, 1986) comes Apocalypse Meow (by Kobayashi Motofumi, 1998) - a manga about the Vietnamese war from the perspective of a small group of American soldiers portrayed as rabbits. At first, I just wanted to read something with as great a name as Apocalypse Meow.  After getting into the first 8 chapters, however, I would recommend this manga to teachers of American or World History.  Anyone interested in wartime history might also enjoy it.  I do have some issues with the characters - I think...
