Synopsis

Beings who possess animal-like powers walk among humans in this alternate universe. These mysterious mutants, the +Anima, are shunned by society. Four outcasts in particular—Cooro, a boy with crow-like powers; Husky, a fish-boy; Senri, a bear +Anima; and a girl named Nana, who wields the power of the bat—search for others like themselves while trying to gain acceptance in a world cruel to anyone or anything that is different.

Ahh, +Anima. Half the readers probably stumbled upon this manga because its name is, alphabetically, one of the first to appear on a manga-hosting website.The other half probably just liked the word "anima" because it sounded pretty. Despite what coincidental "methods" we readers used to find it, +Anima was far from something meagerly amusing, and in fact, was engrossingly endearing in its own right. You can tell a professional storyteller from an amateur one, and Natsumi Mukai is by far the former. A story that's able to be told with stunning and consistent aesthetics, married with heartwarming character development and engaging subplots is difficult to read more

First of all +Anima is a great manga for anybody that loves great artwork and awesome characters. It isn't for everyone becouse there isn't a lot to the story and there isn't a lot of action.

Story: The story received a 7/10 because it wasn't all that special. The four main characters,Cooro, Husky, Senri, and Nana, walk around the world of +Anima in search of a true home. This doesn't sound all that special but it is because on their travels they encounter villains and friends alike, as well as other +Anima which makes the story a little more interesting.

Art: This is what I think read more

+anima was overall an amazing manga I enjoyed every chapter too my hearts content. the charters felt like they had real personality's and I felt that they really grew over the time this manga continued, The story was amazing and I could for the most part never guess what would happen next there were many twists and turns and it was so well built and thought-out there was never a dull moment in this manga. The art was really cute but at the same time quite detailed which I enjoyed.

There was a very calming sensation around the whole thing but sometimes I would crack up read more

I'm very picky when it comes to manga, but this one just drew me right in!

I picked it up just to fill in the slack between Naruto and D.Gray-man updates and just piled right through all that has been posted (up to chapter 41 on the site).

It's amazing, the artwork and the stories. One by one you're drawn in by the characters and kept wondering about them. The manga adds twists and turns, giving you something else to wonder about on top of what already has you wanting to read it. Along with the beautiful pictures and the short clips explaining why Senri has no read more
