Story - 8/10
Ousawa Miko is a 16-year-old girl who loves bread. Especially when it's shaped cutely! One day she decides to apply for a job at St. Molly's bread store, but when she gets there, the person who hires her on is a cute boy her age! Although he makes fun of Miko's clumsiness, he seems to be genuinely kind. But when they find out they're neighbors, they grow even closer.
The story was a little cliche. Ive read about 4 stories with the main working in a restaurant/shop with 2 other male characters, ad they both fall for her. So it was very predictable. But me, I like stories... See full review
On the first glance, D.gray-man looks just like your average shounen manga, which made several people turn away, but afterwards this manga turns into something much deeper and more emotional than a regular shonen. The story is a gradation - It starts like meh, but it gets more and more interesting as you read it, and at current time, I´m dying to read the newest chapter which hasn´t come out yet and will be delayed.
The art style starts as outstanding to me. I absolutely loved it to the start of the manga. Unfortunately, recently it decreased, but it´s still more awesome as... See full review
Strobe Edge is a story, which starts off as a seemingly normal story, a typical shoujo, but because of its superior story pacing and character development, it is able to become something special and unique.
The mangaka decides to start the story off with a very familiar situation. Ninako, a girl who is very naïve towards love, falls in love with one of the popular guys in school, Ren. At first, all seems good, but we soon find out Ren actually has a girlfriend. Then the manga introduces another boy called Andou, who loves Ninako, and thus the typical love triangle is formed.

The story involves an orphan girl, Honda Tohru, and her encounters with the Sohma. I've read this story a couple of times, and have never get bored of it each time. Although at times, Honda Tohru seemed weak, but she appears as cute more often to me. Unexpectedly, I also learnt several 'life lessons' from this manga, as sometimes they give a pretty good saying or advice. The manga was absolutely excellent, and the ending was a little unpredictable (for me).See full review
This is like Alice in wonderland but told in a different unique way like in Alice in Wonderland Alice Follows a Wight Rabbit and falls down a hole and ends up in Wonderland However in this version Alice in the Country of Hearts she is Apathetic and Kind of Hotheaded, when Alice Sees the rabbit she just shrugs it off and ignores the Rabbit so the Rabbit turns in to a handsome man and forces Alice down the rabbit hole only to find all the men in Wonderland are in Love with her and not only that but all of Wonderland is at war, I personally like this out look on Alice in wonderland and really enjoy reading...

Well, I'd like to start off with how CUTE this manga was! I melted; THAT's how adorable it was! The artwork was fantastic...sometimes hinata resembled one of my favorite korean actors and it scared the shit outta me because it was awesome. Moving on... Although the artwork and the cute factor were all fabulous and stuff, the story was just too predictable for me. Honestly, there was no unique qualities to this manga and it seemed too much like Kimi ni Todoke for my tastes. Yeah, most of us have already seen the shy, passive main character who magically has two gorgeous guys fawning over... See full review
I've been thinking about doing a review for this manga for a very long time and the more I postponed it the smaller the grade became, I have a kind of love/hate relationship with this manga and being the series that got me in to anime and manga it is a bit more personal I'd say, well I've read/watched DBZ before it and some others but I wasn't very familiar with the whole manga/anime thing, in fact I don't think I even knew what the were, but I was small back then and well that's enough about me, let's get on with the manga.
The first part of the manga was really great, in fact if I was going to... See full review
You know, it's pretty weird how lately I only come upon manga like this one, it starts off nice, seems like it might be interesting but halfway through it everything just goes down the shitter.
Break Hands is no exception to my current predicament, everything was fine, it really did seem like it had potential and even though it wouldn't have been a great manga it could have been ok, nothing spectacular or amazingly original but a nice read to enjoy when waiting for my favorite mangas to get new chapters, however it all went to hell in the second half of the manga since it apparently was rushed...

If you like faces being peeled off, nazis, a boy being thrown into a wall and having his face explode, several penises, things that make no sense, and people talking about the merits of writing poetry or playing the flute, you will totally love this manga.See full review
Everyone who browses through forums and anime sites has certerly heard of Code Geass. Crowds of people singing the praises of it, as it's the best show so far. I've not seen it, and I picked the manga because I wanted to read this instead; here it came the dark side of CG. Everyone knows the plot; in this case I have no clue on writing it as I use to do. All you need to know is that, apart from the good promises, it totally loses the way. Chaotic, confused, badly developed, this says all. With characters not defined and just totally shameful. While the story goes quickly forward forgetting things and... See full review
The manga starts of fairly chaotically in mid war between two nations when an airbase is under attack, the main character Anuki si there with his father and so is the princess of their nation, to make a short story even shorter, the plane his father is flying to get away with the princes and his son is shot and he can't make it with all the weight which leads to the decision to tell his son to get the parachute and jump, leaving him behind, the parachute gets shot, he falls in the water and is saved by a fisherman and his daughter, they are both residents of a 3rd neutral nation and decide to take the boy...

Story: I'm usually not into the whole techonolgy thing but I love Clamp so I thought I would give this a try. I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the ethical and moral questions that Chobits brought up. I think they are valid and are more relatable as techonology grows in our present day. I loved the pacing and the picture book stories. I'm not a fan of ecchi but I do admit that it lightened up the manga so that it wouldn't be too heavy. I thought the romance was endearing as well. I think it really makes you think which is what Clamp does best. Art: It's Clamp. What more can I say. Characters: I read a... See full review

This serries is attached to that of Clamp campus detective and Man of many faces. It can be read sepprately but you will find you have a better understanding of this serries if you read these tother two serries as well. Two young men race around teh school as super hero's stopping evil from conquering the school and from there the world.See full review
This serries is lovely. Though meant for a younger reader it can be read and enjoyed by most ages. A typical magic girl mange, that later brushes on the idea of male, male relationships. The adevetures of this young girl as she collects magical cards are enjoyable and not that taxing.See full review

Story: I first thought that Kodocha was going to be some cutesty kid romance story. However, I was seriously mistaken. There is romance and they are children but it’s far from childish. There are some pretty heavy themes. However, this darkness is always balanced with humor that had me laughing out loud. I liked the romance, comedy and drama. It wasn’t over the top and it had some unexpected plot twists. It wasn’t predictable which is refreshing. I enjoyed the pacing and, although it left me guessing at times, I was never confused. It becomes very addicting until the very last chapter. I... See full review
Magical x Miracle Back when I was 13 I stumbled into the manga section of book store and Magical x Miracle was the first book I picked up. I was instantly captivated by its cute cover and intriguing summary on the back. It became my gateway manga that introduced me to even more series. Needless to say my review might be bias, but I will do my best to be objective. I can say right off the bat this manga is more suitable for a younger audience, or someone new to the manga/anime world, but do not let that steer you away from enjoying this adorable tale. Story (7/10): Merleawe (nicknamed Mel) is a... See full review

What a strange yet interesting psychological story about a man, his friend, and his chicken. The fact that a complete story was told in such a brief amount of time says something about the authors prowess. I actually want to read more of his work.See full review

First I'd like to say that, unfortunately I had to read Vols. 15 - 19 on the web because Viz Media stopped publishing the manga in the US ay Vol. 14 and to the onlime translators I am forever greatfull.

Ouran High School Host Club Ouran High School Host Club is a manga anyone can enjoy. It is a shoujo manga, and many guys tend to approach these with a closed mind, feeling they are only meant for girls. Entering this manga openminded is important (whether you are a boy or girl) in order to enjoy it to the fullest. Story (6/10): The plot of Ouran High School Host Club sounds very clichéd. A girl, Haruhi, dressed up as a boy has to hide her identity from the rest of the school. Now where have we heard that before? (Hana-Kimi, Girl Got Game, Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru) Then there...

The last volume of the original manga series. As usual my review concerns the question arc, and not the answer arc, as that would contain too many spoilers. I can say though, that the answers are satisfying. The town of Hinamizawa is protesting against the government who wants to build a dam right on the town's location. This has led to several acts of violence, and now the grandson of a minister supporting the dam project has been kidnapped. The police Akasaka is sent to Hinamizawa to investigate whether or not the town is responsible. There he meets the mysterious Rika who tries to convince him to go... See full review
Sigh... I promised myself that I would read 'Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni' in moderation, in order to be able to enjoy the story for a few weeks. However, that does no longer seem like a possibility, as it's become highly addictive. In volume 3 the main focus lies on Satoko. When I was first introduced to her in volume 1 I found her annoying and that impression lasted until I read volume 3. In here we are given explanations for her irritating personality. It is revealed that she has a brother named Satoshi who ran away from his home about a year ago. Satoko is convinced that he will one day return, but Rena... See full review

The story quickly jumps back to where it started in the first volume, although this time the chain of events is different. This volume pays a lot of attention to developing Mion's character. Her twin sister Shion is introduced, which opens up a great opportunity for twists in the future. So, in terms of characters, this volume is an improvement. Also, I can't decide whether or not it's my imagination playing me a trick, but I also felt that the artwork was slightly better. Something about the characters and the lines seem better than it did in volume 1. The amount of sillyness is as high as in previous... See full review
Since I find it odd that nobody has written a review for this manga, I decided to make an attempt to do so. I will be writing a short review for each volume, and then make a conclusion after I've read the last one. In volume 1 we are quickly introduced to the tranquil town of Hinamizawa. Our protanogist is Maebara Keiichi who has recently moved into town. It wasn't long until he met the four girls Mion, Rika, Rena and Satoko, and now they are all in the same club learning more about eachother for every day that passes. On the night of Watanagashi (a festival) Keiichi is told about the mysterious curse... See full review

Some of my favorite mangas are shounen like Bleach and Naruto, however NANA has found a VERY special place in my heart. Story: Nothing gets much better than the story that Ai creates. Everyone wants things to end happily for every character, but this isn't one of those stories. It's real, heartbreakingly so. The main characters get put through the ringer emotionally because they aren't experiencing a "manga life", but life as we know it. It's real, it's unabashed, it's awesome. The story also doesn't focus on one person's journey but the two Nana's stories and the people they meet through it... See full review

Well this is going to be hard, this manga to me was looking like it had potential to be one of those special ones that would set the benchmark for me when it comes to this type of realistic fighting manga, but recent chapters have really started to make me doubt that, and by recent I mean the last 2 or so volumes (I'm at volume 11 atm), it just seems like the author recycles the same thing every new arc and it is getting a bit boring and frustrating really.
The characters are good for the most part, I like the psychological side of the manga with very realistic personalities and problems... See full review
Where to begin? Okay, The Demon Ororon by Hakase Mizuki is a fantasy drama manga. Got that out of the way. It's published by TOKYOPOP so I expected a half-decent storyline, but I'm always disappointed in more ways than one. Characters/Art First off, the art is below average. The main character, Chiaki, is pretty androgynous. I thought at first it was yaoi until I realized that that they were referring to aforementioned character as a "she" and "her". Ororon is stylish, with his cigarette and black suit and original three moles below his left eye and manners of a suave bachelor... See full review

I've never done a manga review before, and I don't plan on doing it regularly. However, this manga, which I picked up with my Christmas money during a Barnes and Noble sale, was one that I had wanted to read for a while considering my enjoyment for the group CLAMP. On the other hand, I've never truly enjoyed their shounen series, prefering their more lighthearted works like Card Captor Sakura and Chobits. However, I decided that since I could buy the work in its entirety for a... See full review
WARNING: the following review is about a Boys' Love (or "yaoi") manga title, which is a subgenre of shojo and ladies manga detailing male/ male homoerotic themes.

Volume One. The first volume was great and all, but I found myself flicking to the back far too much. Understandably this manga is made for the Japanese, there are lots of Japanese jokes and such a thin book has a reasonably large translation page. I always enjoy 4 panelers, and I liked this amount of colour pages used linking to the artistic thought inside the story. The story itself though is what you'd expect from a slice of life. It's one of those that you'd see in a newspaper or something allong those lines. So it doesn't go into much depth with the story but the characters are a little dull... See full review
Story: This story follows a girl called Mai Ishimori. With an old fashioned appearance along with looking only 14 she’s prepared to go on the summer trip of her life for her 17th summer. The plan was to have 3 girls, and 3 guys. A mixer event to a rural cabin, sadly though 2 of the girls had already found boyfriends and ditched at the last moment.

The story was wonderful, the art was fantastic, everything was absolutely amazing.. up until the end. The ending was an absolute let down. It couldn't have been worse. I felt like I had read the entire manga series for absolutely nothing. I love the rest of the story and the characters, but ending it all by ( MAJOR SPOILER ALERT ) having them erase Karin's memories so she didn't even remember her family?! What a cruel and stupid way to end a manga. The person who wrote it obviously didn't have enough of an imagination to find a better and more satisfying way to end a manga. I am extremely...
