Synopsis

In the 2100s, a new virus has arisen that has dramatically evolved the wildlife into deadly monsters. Humans have been left behind by the virus's explosive evolution, and they are facing extinction. The only protection humanity has is the government's battle scientist organization, known as the White Jokers.

Alice and her little sister Mona live in an isolated island city, where they have no hope of either running away or being rescued by the far-off government's White Jokers. Alice is determined to protect her little sister, but she and her handguns may stand no chance against a major attack. One day, a strange boy in a white lab coat, with a mysterious timer floating over his head, appears. Is he a White Joker, and will he be able to protect their little city?

So a hungry joker review. where shall I start?

Let me just say that this surely a disappointing manga, why ? I shall tell you.

The story starts off nicely with character introduction, the learning of the powers that they using. So i got interested but halfway throughout the series I start to notice that they story is being rushed and that makes it a mess out of the series. this surely had great potential if it had dragged out a lot longer so that we can see good character development and see story play out a bit better.

story wise i gave this a 5. I was read more

Well, overall I give it a 4. I feel that this manga has a good potential to be... great. I liked the characters and the art is good. The plot is interesting and well, it's good...
But, it is too rushed! The reveal the 'secret' of the main character too quickly.. The fight are not very well shown and the whole story is not very well presented...
Like i said at the start, this manga really has the potential to be a brilliant manga, but it has to be longer... There needs to be more 'suspense'. I really wished it was longer and that everything read more

Absolutely terrible and it boggles my mind how some people even think it's good. Let me try and break it down into categories.

Story: Incredibly generic. Not only has this type of story, world, and atmosphere been done countless times before to the point that it's barely even remotely appealing anymore this series can't even pull it off effectively. The story is incredibly poorly written and juvenile as is the humor. It feels like some 12 year olds crappy D. Gray Man fan-fiction. Not to mention the entire concept of the story is incredibly pretentious as well as just stupid and laughably ridiculous. And of course read more

I actually RARELY give any lower scores than a 7 for a manga. But this manga was...well, WAAAYYY too rushed, even for me.

Story-
The start of it got me interested. I didn't hate the plot either. This manga had great potential to make a great series too. The powers and the explanation was kinda confusing, but I managed to hold on and kept reading. But once I got to the end, it became a GIANT ball of mess. Like I said, this manga had potential, and yet they messed it up. The ending was a REALLY rushed feeling, and ALONG with a cliffhanger.

In the end, read more
