First Impression:

Flagtime is a very interesting. Moritani is socially awkward. She usually uses her ability to stop time to run away from people or observe her surrounding. Murakami is a popular girl, who’s very straight forward. I love the development in the manga and how their relationship is building. The character development is amazing so far. This is one of those manga that you must read. The story is very sweet. It’s kinda sad to see that such an amazing manga is so underrated. So go check it out. I’m already a fan-girl of this manga! xD

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

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.

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.

First Impression: Destro 246

20130820-020308.jpg

Summary:

Billionaire Tono Ryuichi, the President of Tono Foods Group, a giant food company, recently acquired two young female assassins from the Mexican cartel. Sui and Ai came from unimaginably poor childhoods and was given a choice between killing people or selling their body. They chose the former and went through an inconceivably extreme training and, at 17 years old, they have become one of the deadliest assassins in the world. They are absolutely obedient to their master and they are given the task of finding the killer that poisoned Ryuichi’s wife and child. They begin attending high school to blend into society and, at the same time, read and study which helps them become even more deadlier on the field. Sui and Ai encounter Matoba Imari who is a high school assassin herself and may be more skilled than both of them. But unlike the two, Imari just wants to lead a normal life. Whatever Imari wishes for her life is not their problem because the only thing Sui and Ai feeds on are bloodthirst and a challenge. (Source: MangaHelpers)

First Impression:

This manga is the sequel of Ordinary ±. In this manga 2 new characters prevail and they are as sick as Imari. The manga is by Takahashi, Keitarou who made Jormungand. So the art is amazing and so is the concept of the manga since its about Assassins. The manga is so intense with amazing action. So far only two chapters are translated in English. I so can’t wait to read chapter 3. Also it seems like more assassins will show up in the up coming chapters. It’s totally exciting I can’t wait to read more!!

P.S. If you’re not familiar with Ordinary click on the hyperlink above to read its review.

20130820-014219.jpg

Summary:

She was her best friend and he was her first love… she didn’t plan to change that. Ayu and Kaho were friends since kindergarten. They were the exact opposite and even if both them were cute, they hated men. But one day, Kaho found someone she loved. (Source: Chibi Manga)

Review:

This manga is pretty cute its actually 4 chapters not 6. The manga is about the bounds of friendship. I haven’t read anything like this in quite a while thus it was really refreshing to read something like that. Also the story is not yuri or Shoujo-Ai which surprised me. This is almost the first manga I’ve read with a normal relationship between two girls.
The art of the manga was okay. The storyline is good. As a Shoujo story it’s good I believe it’s worth checking out!

Manga Review: Gantz – Manga Olympics for Bloggers (Seinen/Shounen Round 2)

20130721-215313.jpg

Summary:

Thought your life was bad? Sometimes, death is worse. There is no salvation, peace, nor god waiting to receive you into their care. But wait, a god? Maybe you are talking about that big black ball stuck in the room with you. Now you are thrown into a game, fighting green aliens and robot monsters for the chance to survive.
When Kei Kurono is killed, he thus finds himself caught in such a game; a test of his skills, morals and will to survive. His life is not his own, his death spat and trampled upon over and over again. What happens if he does not listen? God knows.
A word of warning: Gantz is not for the faint-hearted, but neither is it as simple as it looks. Gore, rape and violence is rampant, as are portrayals of greed, violence, and all the ugliness that one sees in society today. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

20130721-215513.jpg

Review:

Firs of all thank you Sir Hiroya Oku for 13 amazing years of Gantz. I still can’t believe it ended… I kept looking for one more page after the last page of the last chapter. So yeah, I’m a huge Gantz fan. It’s an amazing manga if you haven’t checked it out, you should.

20130722-024742.jpg

Now for the actual review. Gantz concept is totally unique. The manga Follows Kei Kurono & Masaru Katou, they are basically the main characters. Due to the concept of the story a lot of characters appear in the manga. The manga is amazing. I loved the story up until the Osaka Arc. It was magical. Though the last arc which is the catastrophe arc, was totally weird. The manga does develop greatly to reach that arc, but the fights weren’t as good as the previous arcs.
The action is absolutely brutal through out the whole manga, I’m not saying that the last arc was bad. It was just a little disappointing for me. Also, I’ve noticed that the whole focus was back to Kurono. I know that Nishi and Sakurai were also main topics in that arc, though it always fell back to Kurono. To be completely honest here, I was disappointed and didn’t like that fact. One more thing I didn’t like in the manga was the fact that we didn’t see most of the characters in action. Specially Reika, did she ever fight?
Supposedly she got 100 point and fought bravely against so many tough Aliens. Though we didn’t see any of that, did we? It was always Kurono this, Kurono that, and her looking pretty in the background of the page… I mean seriously? Well, even with all that its still my favorite manga and it’s the best and brutalist manga out there. Also the story is amazing. I like the idea of Gantz. Is it recommended? Yes of course.

Manga Review: Tokarev no Ayaui Shiro

20130707-035638.jpg

Summary:

Suzuhara Ayaka deeply idolized her best friend, Shiroyama Hiroko. But when they were in high school together, Hiroko dropped out and vanished, telling Ayaka only that it was for something very important. Now, a letter from Hiroko to Ayaka has washed ashore with the corpse of a girl, asking for help.
Chasing after Hiroko, Ayaka goes to visit a strangely isolated high school for girls, which seems creepily eager to accept Ayaka as a student. Will Ayaka be able to uncover the school’s secrets and rescue Hiroko before it is too late? (Source: MangaHelpers)

Review:

I was very disappointed with how things out in the end. The manga had a strong beginning. Things were pretty mysterious and the main character wants to save her friend. Somewhere in the middle of the manga things start to not make much sense. Then the mystery starts uncovering little by little. Though at the end the manga turns into fantasy. I seriously don’t understand where that part came from. It was pretty disappointing. I had high hopes for this manga. Though with all the disappointment I have to say I really enjoyed reading the first 4 chapters. Other than that, there is not much to it.

Overall Review: 4/10

Manga Review: Zenryaku, Yuri no Sono yori

20130707-033704.jpg

Summary:

Synopsis
Yuri doesn’t have any friends because of her personality. One day, the famous Fujiwara talks to her, but Yuri thinks that she’s nothing but a fake person. Shinobu, her childhood friend and only friend, writes a story for a doujinshi which Yuri would do the art. On the story, the main character resembles Fujiwara a lot, but with a twisted personality. On that same day, Yuri sees the real Fujiwara and, as she had suspected, that girl wasn’t so lovely as she appeared. (Source: MU)

20130707-034333.jpg

Review:

This manga had such an innocent story. Its so cute, and I couldn’t stop myself from reading it weakly. I can’t say it’s your typical Shoujo Ai, because the story was actually beautiful. It’s about breaking through people’s walls. Also this was one of the few manga’s with a lot of fillers. I mean there is chapter 1.5, 2.5, 3.5…..etc. I liked the flow of this manga. Also the only thing that was actually close to making that manga a Shoujo Ai, is that picture above the review. Other than that it was a nice story about friendship. Is it recommended?! Yes go read it.
