In Shizume city there's a legend about a red king with demon-like abilities that single-handendly created the Homra organization, as long as you get accepted into Homra, you can gain extraordinary powers.
Have you watch the anime of K-project? If you do , I really suggest you to read this manga!
This manga , 'K-Memory of red' is a prequel to the anime K-project and it revolves around the story of HOMRA (its obvious since the title is 'RED' :b)
The flow of this manga's story is well plotted and arranged,there even no cliffhanger at all! and the story is not really 'cliche'(I rarely found any when I read it) .I really like how they present the members of HOMRA past one by one but the story should have been inserted with a bit more detail in each of the manga chapters . However , the chapters are all understandable,enjoyable and not that perplexing , but it needs just a little bit deep and it will be perfect , otherwise it just 9/10 for the story :D
GoRa is new , I can't expect much for the art , but do not worry , all of the environment , detail and character are all a job well done . 8/10 , because they should have not 'lazily' draw at some places where the character got no face at all.Again , don't worry , the art is really awesome and very clean xD
Character? THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST ELEMENT OF THIS MANGA. All of the characters behave differently and matched their 'roles' and 'position' (example: mikoto - as the king). I like how they potrait of unbreakable friendship , especially in HOMRA , they are all BEST at their own respective way . I can guarantee you that you will end up LIKE ALL THE CHARACTERS , which is why it is 10/10 =)
Enjoyment ? Sad , Warm , Anguish , Dark , Light and all other useful emotions are all AMAZINGLY blended/stirred together . At times , you will laugh at some moment , at certain part , you will be left with sadness . I suggest you turn on some matching original soundtracks like from Tsubasa chronicles(ex:I talk to the rain , ship of fools) and I REALLY SUGGEST YOU LISTEN TO Awake boku no subete - monochrome factor ost upon reading chapter 7!! Thats really got me !! xD 10/10 definitely!
Overall this manga is one of the best shounen genre I ever stumbled across. For those who likes actions stirred with not-static emotions@random , this is a must read , but I REALLY RECOMMEND you to watch the anime first at least 7 episodes , before reading this manga. 9/10.
Hope you enjoy the manga and don't forget to support the artists@GoRA for more of their awesome production! :) read more
First of all, if you had watched the anime and into Homra then I suggest you read this without further thought.
Because my favorite character is Totsuka Tatara I didn't hesitate in reading this at all. I wanted to know more about Homra since they didn't reveal anything about most of their characters although I noticed their appearance is really beautiful. And really... I wasn't disappointed at all!
I loved most of the characters in this manga 'the ones they didn't shown much in the anime'. Also their stories would tell you more about the bonds they share and the reasons these bonds has become stronger.
And you will know more about Totsuka of course, the way he treasured recording everything about his friends and then ended up without any picture of himself... Perhaps only a glimpse :( .
