I must confess to being one of those impatient readers – if a story doesn’t grab me quickly, I tend to lose interest. That said, the opening of Anne Freaks not only grabbed me, it gave me a good shaking by the metaphorical scruff of the neck. It’s clear from watching Yuri dispose of his mother’s body that he’s not the most mentally balanced person you’re likely to meet and within a few more pages, we realise that young Anna herself is about as sane – and dangerous – as a bag full of wasps on LSD. Admittedly, given that there’s only 24 chapters to read more

Anne Freaks, quite the odd name for a manga yet this is indeed one book you should not judge by its cover.

You get thrown into the action, mystery and romance quite quickly(since its only 24 chapters) yet it delivers it in such a way that you'll find yourself entranced and finishing the series before you know it. The conclusion of which I found quite fitting and enjoyable.

I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves a good romance. I've reread multiple times and it has remained a favorite to this day

REVIEW: An earlier look into the lives and minds of a group of killers who hunt criminals, some disturbingly overzealous, others reluctant, by Kotegawa Yua.

IT ALMOST SEEMS A DRY RUN FOR HER LATER SEINEN MASTERPIECE "KIMI NO KNIFE". Weaker but similar art and familiar character profiles, using the now-familiar plot devices of guilt-driven hallucinations and love+circimstances forcing a mild-mannered, shy, guilt-wracked, and cowardly man onto the path of the reluctant killer... However, "Anne Freaks" is shorter, less mature and less coherent, with less detail less realism less believabilit and far less emotional impact, lacking its powerful mood-setting devices and strong introspectives...

To be fair to me, this was kind of like a poor mans Black lagoon.

The concept was intriguing but it really just really didn't live up to its promise.It could have been so much more than it was.

That said , its a fair read , so it garners a six in almost everything except the art , which i kinda liked.

Manga: Kimi no Knife
A series by the same mangaka. In which the protagonist also has to deal with the results of murder and finding an unusual girl. 
reportRecommended by fiore777
Manga: Goth
-similar philosophy 
reportRecommended by LSD-25
Manga: Black Lagoon
For two reasons
one , you have a Heroine who has no remorse at all at pulling the trigger and secondly, both deal with a romance albeit not your average one to say the very least.

Black lagoon is a superior read but Anne freaks does share a lot of similarities as well.

Manga: Ana Satsujin
Exact same premise. Submissive, suicidal boy meets homocidal, psychopathic girl. Boy grows more and more accepting of girl's kills and madly attracted. Deep chemistry between the two. Horrific love ensues. Anne Freaks is more fast paced, focuses on conspiracies, and titular character is being hunted by the secret organization. While the male lead in Ana Satsujin takes a more passive route to the female lead's killing so far, Anne Freaks' male lead is increasingly homicidal.

Manga: Arcana
Same Author The plots are nothing alike but they give of a similar feel. They both can be quite dark but suprisingly funny at times  
reportRecommended by specracer29
Manga: Line
This series is by the same author. They are both simular in the surreal sense. Both are very good series, and at times some what unusual. If you liked Line you should definatly at least check out Anne Freaks.
