I was hesitating to start this manga, still for the beautiful art i decided to try it and got addicted to the intriguing plot and mostly to the characters. It became one of my favorites. And it has originality (starting by the name, Karneval), all the universe of Karneval its quite charming.

Story- Karneval is about a kid named Nai who seems to be searching for his lost "brother" Karoku. In his journey he eventually finds a teenage named Gareki and they end up in the Organization Circus, where they develop a friendship with two young Circus agents. The four start living together as a group read more

This is probably one of the greatest mangas I've ever read. Just thought I should start with that. The art work is done beautifully, something that's pretty hard to come across. Not just because the characters are beautiful (Gareki, Yogi, Karoku, Hirato...need I go on?) but detailing and the effects are powerful.
I gave it all a ten because I truly feel it deserves that. As an ongoing, monthly manga, I find myself checking it each and every day in hopes that some miracle happened and the internet set another juicy chapter in my lap. Too much? IT'S JUST THAT GOOD!!! I promise no disappointments read more

Karneval is a very original and interesting story filled with many fun moments, you cannot help but become intrigued by the plot-line and the wonderful characters surrounding it. The characters are all interesting in their own ways with their strengths, personalities and even flaws.

The only let down you may have with Karneval is that it can become confusing and difficult to understand in some places (Aka; explanation points) although most people will probably get the gist of it.

If you plan to watch the anime instead (or after reading the manga) you I say go ahead! The anime is almost exactly identical to the read more

I've never ever written a review before, so this will be my first.
There are many things that I want to say about this wonderful manga and the reasons for the which you SHOULD really give it a try if you're still hesitant about reading it or not, but I'll move step by step, just to be clear.


~ STORY: 9

The plot is wonderful and pretty original. I won't go through everything that happens since it's all written in the synopsis but I'm a person who prefers watching anime instead of reading manga. I don't have much time to spend on them and I pretty dislike reading read more

The Closest Gareki Ever Got to Giving or Earning a Kiss in Karneval

For a show with no romance, Karneval features a lot of physical affection. Filled with hugs and cuddles, it's still never romantic. The only thing nobody ever does is kiss each other. Not even once. But oddly enough, the grumpiest character in the show is the one who gets *almost* kissed the most.

The Colorful and Mysterious World of Karneval

In Karneval, it's not only fun and games. Circuses in real life are pure fun. The "Circus" in this anime has a different priority: to protect the people no matter what! But true to their name, they also make people smile. Read on for more details.
