First Impression:

The other day I was checking out what’s new in the manga world, when I came across this title. The manga is titled “Hero Mask” so I thought it’s going to be another corny hero manga. You see most hero manga are similar to one another. Anyways, I thought I should give it a try since its under “Seinen” genre. I’m glad I checked it out! It was so interesting!! They have a Hero club at school. Also, the manga is about self-development which is exactly why I love manga!! The characters have a cool idea about hero and justice which was nice. Even though they still haven’t had any serious action/fighting scenes, it seems like the manga has potential. I can’t wait to read the next chapter and I believe you should give it a try its pretty interesting. :D

Status: Finished
Published: Nov 17, 2006 to Sep 19, 2008
Genres: Romance, School, Shoujo

Serialization: Hana to Yume

20130829-003851.jpg

Review:

I’m not a fan of Shoujo manga but I’m a fan of Nishikata, Mai. She’s one of the best Shoujo mangak I’ve read for so far. The thing I enjoyed most about Venus Capriccio is that the events are pretty unique and the whole story doesn’t resemble any other Shoujo manga I’ve read before. There was always something that surprised me there. Also I love the fact that it was about music. I wish it was turned into an anime so I could hear the music. Still yet I felt like I heard the music due to the way it was described. I highly recommend this manga. Its a delightful read and totally worth the time.

Overall Rate: 8/10

First Impression:

For some reason… I believe this manga is fit as a slice of life. Seiten no Hekigan has a very interesting first chapter that made me continue reading it. As it says in the Summary the manga is follows this girl Natsuki. So far we know that Natsuki had a incident in the past that made her anti-social and depressed. We also know that she encounters an Alian and take her into her home as her sister. I just read chapter 8 and eagerly awaiting the next chapter. You won’t believe how good the story keeps getting. So check it out and tell me what you think.
