.hack//Another Birth
622/283/4 Basic novels, covering games which ONCE had an original concept, from the viewpoint of the best character from the games. These novels won't impress avid readers due to the overly simple descriptions.
Add - More
17-sai.
815/351/4 A manga without heroes. The lead does nothing outside of running away as a girl is kidnapped, gang-raped and tortured for a period of 44 days. The disgusting thing about it is that it was based on a true story. If you can handle it, a great read.

20th Century Boys
854/2495/22 There's some The Usual Suspects deception going on. (Hint: FRIEND IS THE ONE PLAYING MUSIC, AT THE START!) Still undecided about a childhood world domination plan that's as intriguing as it is absurd, but the timeline / character jumping keeps it fresh.

6000: Rokusen
711/222/4 The ocean floor isn't where you want to be when, previously, everyone at the facility died & the devil was summoned. Quality art adds to the creepiness, and the claustrophobic tension has built since the start... but it's been all build-up, little payoff.
Add - More
Again!!
671/1366/12 Had potential before its romance-drama turn. Imamura keeps changing personality--as inconsistent as "Danchou" with her femininity. With Hiro pointlessly 'Again-ing', it's become a fad; not a life-changing miracle. Not enough memories/regret to hit home.
Add - More
Ai Yori Aoshi
646/1535/17 Famous (in my mind) for being serialized alongside Berserk simply because the artist drew nipples. It could, and probably should, have ended after the first volume. I'll read volumes 1-10 and then decide what to do with the series.

Ajin Publishing
65/-1/- The idea of 'demi-humans' that can be killed but never die is COOL. And how society views them as non-humans is chilling. But the execution screams 'SHOUNEN SUPERPOWERS'. The kid helping the lead due to TWEEN MEMORIES = JAPAN! Vertical's HQ paper = YES!
Add - More
Akatsuki no Yona Publishing
77/-1/- The newest manga created by the author of NG Life. The princess needs to stop acting like a princess. CUT YOUR HAIR, DAMNIT! Keeping the gift of the man who murdered her father = UGH. Has potential but turns into a reverse harem fest, later on.
Add - More
Aku no Hana
747/589/11 Aku Hana has always been absurd yet grounded by unhappiness. In v7-8 Nakamura's shadow hung over Kasuga--culminating in Saeki's unsettling return cameo. But in V9, a forced 'happy end' gloss got applied. Hot girl reads books = dead inside = GIRLFRIEND.
Add - More
Akumetsu
725/1623/18 Ignoring the lack of character development, and the fact that the lead is a know-it-all, reincarnating, high school superhero, Akumetsu is great. The 'rich get richer; poor get poorer' dialogue is dull, but that's made up for by the art and kill count.
Add - More
Alive: Saishuu Shinkateki Shounen
731/838/21 Parasyte's premise was copied to start with, and then the story became heavily cliched. The lead goes through so many shounen cliches it's painful... and yet, the blend of action & comedy, decent characterization, and intense battles make it absorbing.
Add - More
Ao no Exorcist Publishing
737/-9/- Varied characters & their expressions sells it. Lacks a plot, though. Post-anime, I was expecting excitement, only to get pointless monks. How Rin's 'friends' acted dickish then got over it was odd. V8's Yukio hate-demon development was intriguing.
Add - More
Ashita Dorobou
820/312/4 A salaryman reminisces about his beautiful-but-childish ex. Then an alien sphere appears, and his still-21 ex appears from it. She shoots lasers; he falls in love again. And his REAL, non-alien ex also gets involved. Crazy seinen rom-com sexiness.
Add - More
Übel Blatt Publishing
67/-1/- +vol0. The basic '7 heroes are BAD; 4 villains were GOOD' dark fantasy premise is VG. The CARTOONISH horse-fuck characterisation, less so. WEIRDO fan-service: random shotaxelf + fingering. Equivalent only to the CURRENT shounenish Berserk w/ its revenge.
Add - More
Bakuman.
761/1767/20 Getting boring & repetitive. The writer's lack of female understanding makes it sexist. Miho has all the personality of a doll. The shounen cliches become irritating. An interesting insight into SJ, but comes across as scripted, with a so-so cast.
Add - More
Berserk Publishing
6324/-36/- 2 vols of 'comical' pirates & tentacle slashing filler. At least Griffth turning the world into a JRPG was relevant. Textless poses = pacing. Too lighthearted: NONE of the rapey despair of old. Miura's GONE--only Isma chasing her tail/boobies saving it.
Add - More
Biomega
617/423/6 As fun as it is seeing a humanoid terminator ride a bike along rooftops, taking on regenerating, evil looking baddies, the lack of story is increasingly bothersome. I get the feeling what I've seen so far is all I'll be getting, and that kind of sucks...
Add - More
Black Lagoon Publishing
876/-9/- The anti-climatic end to Roberta's insanity arc, which included almost everyone, makes me wonder how BL can end well for R&R. Differing philosophies between psychologically disturbed bitches keeps me hooked, but the chaotic action is too hard to follow...
Add - More
Blade of the Immortal
8197/20729/30 24/25 Eng vols out. No pre-orders. SCAN TIME! Lost purpose after Rin stopped hating. The 'SAVE MANJI!' arc = GREAT - crystallizing Rin's womanly growth - but the last arc is 24/7 no-reason fighting. Makie's sexy dance-killing avoids 7/10. NEARLY FINISHED!
Add - More
Blood Alone Publishing
729/-6/- DtB x S&W's wordiness. TOO MUCH of the ADORABLE immortal loli sleeping with her protector & being scared of thunder. No cohesive flow: random vampires or random slice-of-life. Kuroe got "mounted" by his shotacon MILF teach, as part of his magic training.
Add - More
Blood Lad Publishing
630/-6/- Wrote-on-the-fly structure. Meant to be about reviving a ghost, but you wouldn't guess. Boxing; a loli-vamp prison; demonic power-levels... Bell's eccentric love-loveness + her expressions ALMOST make up for THE most generic-vanilla, doe-eyed heroine.
Add - More
Boku wa Mari no Naka Publishing
532/-3/- I'm calling it: there's NOTHING supernatural at play. The series ran out of plot after the 'YOU STOLE MY BOYFRIEND!' drama. Ch31 = a RANDOM 'body swapping' hentai (NIPPLE TWEAKING!) masturbation scene. Liked the period cramp/bloody pad seriousness, but...
Add - More
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Publishing
731/-7/- The author sums up why I prefer the manga: "As a reader, I can't wait to see the strange faces Y&S make, which are wildly inappropriate for heroines." I lose interest once the loli pair & nympho get in the way of Y&S 'bonding'. DRAMA PLZ NOOO
Add - More
Bokura ga Ita
812/703/16 Close to 9/10. I've been impressed with the story up to yet, it having been steady and devoid of melodrama. The love square seems like it'll be very involving. But I'm not liking how Yano has cried about being cheated on and, seemingly, cheated on Nana.
Add - More
Bokurano
833/665/11 Want to see kids die? Read this - the story where every kid dies after receiving character development. On-hold until Viz have released up to where I stopped reading.
Add - More
Break Blade Publishing
857/-10/- Anime, how could you skip Girge taking out EVERYONE, on one leg!? From psychotic to cool-as-fuck, in an instant. Why would a faithful adaptation suddenly diverge to the point of skipping THAT? Rygart will reject Sigyn's love>robot plan, methinks.
Add - More
Btooom! Publishing
749/-8/- On-hold until Yen Press catch-up. X360 + Battle Royale. Marrying the rapebait online helps 22x15yo lovin'. The lead is the fittest recluse EVER, and he can survive ANYTHING. Getting ruined by it being wrong to kill & 'fate' needing to lend a helping hand.
Add - More
Chinatsu no Uta
730/312/3 Chinatsu's smile, and her pure love of all things, ALMOST makes me believe in angels. Kitagawa is a true artist. It's slice-of-life at its absolute best. I just hope it ends happily, and that Chinatsu's "wife" line was foreshadowing. Incomplete @ 3/3?
Add - More
Chocolat
635/733/7 Badarse X comic relief yakuza team up to run a cake shop, whilst attempting to appease a bratty teenage 'princess'. Sanctuary this ain't! Chiyoko is the series' lifeblood--either ranting at her new yakuza 'family', or getting lovey-dovey AND ranting.
Add - More
Claymore
781/15914/27 The manga kind of goes to shit after the oh-so-original shounen timeskip; Clare powering up a silly amount. Stick to the anime if you want to believe Claymore is brilliant. On-hold until more new volumes have been released.
Add - More
Cupid no Itazura: Nijidama
88/681/7 EVERY lady drawn by this author is S-E-X-Y! There's little smut, which makes it a tease, but the pervy rom-comedy makes up for it. 100% the lead will EVENTUALLY get with the friend he jizzed on the face of (when thinking of another girl on a school trip).
Add - More
Delivery
84/61/2 Manga where sex is dealt with without shyness are rare. This is why I like Delivery. All of the characters were understandable to the point of sympathy; even when involving cheating. And the art? expressive to the point of arousal.
Add - More
Dengeki Daisy
619/784/16 Like countless other shoujo, it was only intended to last 1-3 chapters. It lacks a sense of purpose. Outside of lovebirds refusing to confess until the end and melodramatic hacking nonsense, no story, either. Saved by its quality comedic art.
Add - More
Destroy and Revolution Publishing
719/-2/- Unlike Kitoh's emotionally detached Nanika-w/e, D&R FIRST builds a believable broship bond AND THEN moves onto brain + power supernatural terrorism. A bit too wordy and slow, and the 'One-ness' universe-understanding bits only confuse, but promising.
Add - More
Dokuhime
724/363/5 D's heroines are made into seductive weapons and then discarded after assassinating. Not your typical girly comic! Few stories are so captivating... BUT, progress soon halts. At first it was episodic backstories, now it's in a repetitive end-evading loop.
Add - More
DOLL: IC in a Doll
923/334/6 A sober look at the human condition. The irony of a machine teaching a human the value of life; the destructive nature of desire turning people into objects--these elements drive this beautifully tragic one-shot collection. Mihara = best at short stories.
Add - More
Dorohedoro Publishing
717/-3/- A grotesque-funny-brutal mix. A lizard man is BFF with a busty, kickass lady who cooks his food (/luv), and the duo intend to hunt down the one behind Mr. Liz's face. Two worlds exist: one for magic users; one for experimentation. Nothing else is like it.
Add - More
Dousei Recipe
645/646/8 At its best when DRAMA only came from hair removal / period cramp lulz. Began daft-funi: EVERY conversation being a two-way misunderstanding. Love rivals weighed it down, then arranged marriage FORCED SEPARATION ruined it. THE TOMBOY FEMDOM LESBIAN!!11!
Add - More
Eden: It's an Endless World!
764/1279/18 Great--Eden has gone down south after eight (mostly) amazing volumes. I was on the verge of 10/10ing it, and I even praised Endo before starting volume nine. Grrrrrrrr. Why do THAT to Helena!? It's now on the verge of being dropped.
Add - More
Emanon - Sasurai Emanon Episode: 1
68/81/1 The story so far: Emanon is NOT A KAPPA, and she has a NIIICE bush. Just an excuse for Emanon to swim around naked. I don't mind potential waifu nakedness, but I expected more after the dialogue-driven original. Should've ended as a single volume stunner.
Add - More
Fruits Basket
-12/1362/23 A shoujo, complete with lots of the usual blushing and ladyboys... who turn into animals. I fear I'm too manly to handle it. One day, I'll read volumes 1-5 and learn the truth about my manliness, once and for all.
Add - More
Full Metal Panic! Sigma
856/9013/19 HOW COULD THE POST-KURZxMAO SEX HILARITY BE SKIPPED!? The continuation of TSR's separation drama as Tokyo became a warzone = the best of FMP. Then came a two volume sidestory, Chidori not trying to escape and contrived meeting/timing irritation.
Add - More
Fullmetal Alchemist
895/11623/27 Romantic subplots: not seen through to conclusion/used for comedy. Killing: it's wrong for heroes to kill in a shounen series. Plot: 'The Day of Reckoning' came out of nowhere, without explanation. Positive: non-stop action finale = Brotherhood 9/10.
Add - More
Gantz
7326/38330/37 'Good Gantz' ended w/ Kurono's memory loss. Was in its element when FRESH death-games against increasingly insane monsters excited, w/ CONSTANT character replacing. This 'Katastrophe' finale is... Independence Day + even worse/weirder? END, PLZ!
Add - More
Genshiken Publishing
867/-11/- Without Saki's 'outsider looking in' view on otakuism, pure masturbation. Genshiken was about its core cast growing together, then graduating. Restarting as a fujoshi series = THE AUTHOR SOLD-OUT! Only the hope Madarame gets with Saki keeps me interested.
Add - More
GetBackers
755/3447/39 Ah, this takes me back; back to the days when I was new to anime and discovered GB by chance. GB contains everything I LOVED about anime back then: lots of action, mixed with decent characterization, coolness, and silly humour. I'm into the manga already!
Add - More
Green Blood
717/492/5 Initially, I was sold on this gritty Wild West manga with such MAGNIFICENT art. But, in v2, it ALREADY seems to have run its course. And the 'handblade' gunfight reminded me of Equilibrium. The 'crisscrossing lines' stylistic choice doesn't appeal, also.
Add - More
GTO: Shonan 14 Days
819/772/9 This just got a hell of a lot more interesting with chapter 17: Shinomi from SJG - Onizuka's old 'love' - is going to be a main character! Let the perverted comedy ensue. (Please lose your virginity, Onizuka!!!)
Add - More
Gunjo
910/-1/3 Incredibly complex characters + unpredictability to the point it's impossible to guess its ending. Unique. The distinctive realistic art, that's full of emotion, is beautiful. The 'lesbian' duo are tragically flawed, and I'm drawn to their suicidal bond.

Happy Negative Marriage
714/332/5 Mr. Dull Glasses gets a marrage meeting with a busty virgin beauty--THE dream girl. Until c14, the erotic 'sex' was the main plus of a reality-distant romance. But then, DRAMA! SHE ISN'T PERFECT! She meets a 40yo next?... TROLL END, PLZ!
Add - More
Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. Publishing
75/-1/- SLIGHTLY betters ep1 of the anime (pacing/info). Didn't finish the 'Princess' arc in v1 (ep1=3/5chs). The big eyes have a CUTE, non-moe appeal--enhanced by the 'cold rage' stoic reactions over the lead's antics. DMP a no-go: will read online, post-anime.
Add - More
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai: Meakashi-hen
916/213/4 The relationship of twins Mion and Shion, and their differences, provide Higurashi's best characterisation. And the series is in its element when twisted drama plays out alongside murder mystery. This is why the first 'Kai' arc beats what came before.
Add - More
Himizu
635/433/4 As initially intriguing as the lead was with his 'dream' of normality, where's the plot? Just a bunch of borderline filler characters involved with nastiness; adding to the overall nihilistic tone. Do I care if the lead kills others, or himself?... No.
Add - More
Holy Knight Publishing
59/-1/- If there's a story beyond a seductive red-head wanting the lead's seed, it's well-hidden. Vampires are involved, and a dog-man NTR'd the lead (raping his childhood friend), but that's it for plot. Miyazaki's faces, nipples & hidden-penis-touch = BESTEST.
Add - More
Homunculus
79/1669/15 "why go to a psychiatrist when you could get yourself raped and get rid of any mental illness" -- Like a shounen where the lead has the power to heal others, but with cum-eating + other 18+ filth. The disurbing realism/detail of the art is off the charts.
Add - More
Hotman
9112/16710/15 A slice-of-life master's take on GTO. Enzo is pretty much Onizuka with a daughter & four younger siblings. Where as Oni made his class his 'family', Enzo sacrifices himself for his real family as he deals with the mistakes of his past. Too hot.
Add - More
Houkago Hokenshitsu
632/398/10 Early on, I was into it. However, I now see why someone eBayed it at 8/10. I've lost interest due to the characters going around in big circles; nothing being explained about the plot AT ALL and the love triangle being painfully straightforward.
Add - More
Hourou Musuko
77/1231/15 "As usual, my characters are hard to tell apart, my backgrounds are too empty" -- When the author says this, one has to wonder why it's getting LARGE English releases. Won't become compelling until those unhappy with their gender hit puberty/start dating.
Add - More
I Am a Hero Publishing
6143/-12/- Goes from a zombie series where 2chan/recluses take over, w/ social commentary non-reactions (/passive Japanese)... to a Gantz underwear war. Snail-paced (w/ RANDOM jumps) + SHORT chapters. Only the STRONG female characters kept me reading.
Add - More
Ichigo 100%
7116/16713/19 At first, it was paced well. But then everything started going in circles. If not for it being a rom-com, I'd hate the lead for leading on 5+ girls; ignoring the fact his original love is always there. On-hold indefinitely, thanks to an ending spoiler.
Add - More
Ikigami: The Ultimate Limit
854/609/10 Has grown stale & formulaic with its 3-chapter-per-story set-up. Only so many ways despair can be drawn. I still like it but it could've been so much more, had the lead/world been better explored. A rushed 'government falls--THE END!' conclusion?
Add - More
Jisatsutou Publishing
730/-3/- The lead's change from no-confidence loser to The Deer Hunter was great. Numerous chapters were spent on his thoughts alone as he hunted. So, why 7? The art is unappealing and the pacing is so slow that the love interest has yet to be named, 3 volumes in.
Add - More
Joshikousei Girls-Live Publishing
86/--/- More of High School Girls' educational perversion, in a spin-off? SIGN ME UP! Made me laugh a good few times as I learned about vibrators and how women would prefer them to come with a backstory; such as the vibe being a fictional person's penis.
Add - More
Kagerou Meikyuu Publishing
68/-2/- An otaku pandering murder mystery. Has an erotic work set-up - the lead living with 3 hot sisters (sexing one) & even a hyper girl at school getting in on the act. Took a WTF!? turn with ch8, jumping 1000 years into the past and people using superpowers.
Add - More
Kamen Teacher
524/372/4 Basically, it's a GTO spin-off. The problem is, it lacks the heart, characterization, and quality humour of GTO. Another issue is that the violence is so over the top that the schools are more like gang hideouts. Not Fujisawa's best.
Add - More
Kamisama no Iutoori
715/213/5 Apparently, manga in Shingeki's magazine aren't exactly typical shounen titles. Exploding head unpredictability as teens play death-games against aliens. Goes from WTF-good to plain stupid, once the first lot of craziness gets cubed.
Add - More
Kamiyadori
610/292/5 A lot of action, a lot of death, and decent entertainment. I actually want to know what lead to an alien woman spreading a deadly virus around the globe, and I'd also like to know about how the lead got himself his very own loli. Scissor Shotguns FTW!
Add - More
Kanojo ga Tonda Hi
-2/5-/1 I'm fond of depressing slice-of-life types, but the first story had unrealistic characters (they were too happy for a suicide story) and the second, though far more realistic and powerful, had a poor ending. I'll need to read more to grade it.
Add - More
Karakuri Odette
711/352/6 Starts out funny, with an android going to school as an ordinary girl and the daftness you'd expect ensuing. But it quickly becomes shoujish--Odette acting too human, a love triangle forming & initially cool characters losing their charm via repetition.
Add - More
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou
-7/1032/21 It starts fast and then loses its way, with 100 side characters and their issues getting time instead of the main relationship. It would've been a 10/10 had it been a far shorter series. I only own the first three volumes.
Add - More
Kimi ni shika Kikoenai
72/3-/1 More short story goodness from the author of Goth. Not as dark and twisted as his other work, but far from light-hearted. When an author can make a story about imaginary phones powerful, the author in question is talented.
Add - More
Kimi no Knife
652/716/10 Becoming increasingly stale. There's no goal to work towards: a group of characters are contracted to kill for money. There's drama/trouble over every 'mission'. The characterisation isn't bad but it's all too... fillerish; without a main plot thread.
Add - More
Kimi wa Pet
722/824/14 I still think it's pandering to women with the desire to treat a young, flexible ladyman as a pet a bit too much, but I'm warming to it. I do like like the characters; the outwardly strong Sumire in particular. Nothing ever really happens, though...
Add - More
Kingyoya Koshoten Publishing
721/-3/- Interesting? Yes. Educational, even? Yes. Exciting? Nein. Seeing manga worked into episodic shorts about the meaning of life and the daily struggles of average people is nice and all, but a number of the shorts come off as shallow and - sometimes - fake.
Add - More
Koharu no Hibi
720/243/4 No other 'romance' like KnH. Usually, stalkers get restraining orders, but Koharu is SO cute-creepy (+tongue-happy) that no-one stops her. Only reading for lulz after Koharu force-kissing (/fap) a girl became a non-issue. Koharu NEEDS to turn into Yano.
Add - More
Koimoku
67/201/5 Like Bakuman, but with a T&A + harem approach to the manga creation process. A career woman acting like a ditz/housewife hybrid, as well as getting naked to bring out the lead's talent?... +1 for realism. Better than reading UxU's v10 melodrama shitfest?
Add - More
Koko wa Greenwood
65/601/9 Life at an all-boys' school, with a cast of pretty boys you'd expect in such a story. Not especially funny, it's going to be near enough entirely episodic, and the art is average shoujo quality. Strikes me as being very much a 6-7/10.
Add - More
Kono Onee-san wa Fiction desu!?
78/491/8 In a parallel 2D universe, HOT 28yo women are virgins. They also get drunk and use the body of young men as a pillows. What sets this apart from the ecchi crowd is the MUCH YOUNGER lead acting mature; fending off Ms. Virgin's advances. (..Maybe he's gay?)
Add - More
Kono S wo, Mi yo! - Cupid no Itazura
751/1555/15 I WAS going to type that Taku=GOD of manga with the PERFECT hilarity, nudity, love & drama mix. Then came the post-sex bit where evil Mitaka (/MI) turned up and Chizuru got naked for him on command (RAWs). WTF!? I'm left NTR'd until c81+ get scanned...
Add - More
Kurokami
7102/14214/19 Ever since Kurokami peaked with the Okinawa arc it's been going nowhere. New goodies & baddies appear, they fight, and nothing significant occurs. Keita's gradually building a harem but I'm fast losing interest. Akane's boobs need to get it back on track.
Add - More
Let's☆Lagoon Publishing
712/-1/- The wet dream of every male: being stranded on a deserted island, with a young 'n fresh, big-boobed hottie. The art is attractive and the timeslip aspect makes it more interesting, but it seems to be heading in a bizarre haremish direction. Might be good?
Add - More
Life
937/809/20 I got V9, for £16. HURRAY!!!... wait a sec, I can only read two more chapters on the net, AND I'VE READ THEM ALREADY. Help!? Life is 100% over the top for entertainment purposes, but it's hard not to want to see what else can go wrong in Ayumi's life.
Add - More
Limit
715/234/6 Limit is a microcosm of the survival genre. SMALL cast + more concerned with school social hierarchy than murder. Hard to accept modern JP school girls can go off the map in this shoujo LotF. ACTUAL DEATH in v4, but goes in a DAFT nice=evil direction.
Add - More
Living Game
636/1193/10 A very cute / lighthearted rom-com about work being mixed with young/old(er) cohabitation. The rom-com shenanigans as an old flame of the lead moves in to create a love triangle/quad do amuse... but the art is plain and it soon grows stale. Lost interest.
Add - More
Maou: Juvenile Remix
767/977/10 Examines the bystander effect & the herd mentality. Ando's realisation that he'd only be existing if he didn't act + people being manipulated into a mob impressed me. But the ESP gets in the way, and Ando = worthless. Lost momentum with the Junya twist.
Add - More
Maoyuu Maou Yuusha: 'Kono Watashi no Mono to Nare, Yuusha yo' 'Kotowaru!' Publishing
75/--/- A Hero is sent to kill the Demon Queen. He gets a lesson about the econimical benefits of war and ends up as her 'lover'. Educational - taught me the importance of potatoes. Ms. Busty needs to stop acting like a teenage girl and start flirting like Howo.
Add - More
March Story
719/244/5 SAO's best-art-ever, with too much lightheartedness. Starts with demon hunting, before a CURVY bath-time reveal. Gets less dark (recurring comic relief). Too much 'sparkly shoujo'... BUT, v4 had start-to-end villain nastiness pacing--MUCH better than v3!
Add - More
Mardock Scramble
67/332/7 Two interlinked aspects make me prefer the anime. #1 is Balot not coming across like an ex-prostitute, desperate for love. #2 is the ok art not matching the anime's futuristic grit. It also lacked the courtroom interrogation scene; opting for more action.
Add - More
Megane Ouji
63/121/4 Essentially, it's another one of those shoujo where the male treats the female badly but, regardless, gets lucky in the end. The arseholism hasn't been TOO bad, up to yet, and it has been a good read, but a lot depends on what happens next.
Add - More
Mel Kano.
718/352/5 E-dating leads to much lulz irl, so a manga about it by the author of HSG was destined to be fun. What's holding it back is the main relationship drama being dumb due to Towa wanting the two involved to be recurring characters in an episodic series.
Add - More
Minimum Publishing
715/-2/- Desire for pussy leads to running to a PC. What happens next? You guessed it--a tiny girl appears out of the DVD drive. And for a lil' thing wearing a hanky, she's one hell of an abusive tsundere! Full-colour (v1) nipples + mini-girl rom-comedy = YES!
Add - More
Mirai no Utena
6-/745/11 Comes off as if Hiwatari wrote without a plan... and she basically admitted that by saying she hadn't planned out the sci-fi side. Starts as a moving drama, then becomes a rom-com, and now the focus is on basic RPG elements / good vs. evil. Not PSME2...
Add - More
Moteki
813/331/5 I assumed it was gonna be an 'episodic woman/sex' series. But there's only four heroines--each connected to the lead's past. And none of them outright love/want to sex him. Full of heartbreak and character growth. THAT ART!... makes me wish it was trashy.
Add - More
Mousou Shoujo Otaku-kei
923/513/7 I never thought I'd add a title with 'Shounen Ai' as a genre. But you know what? Not only is it a new love of mine, it's made me think nice thoughts about yaoi fangirls. Seriously. It even has a steamy romance included. Media Blasters, FINISH IT!!!!
Add - More
MPD Psycho Publishing
-6/-1/- So, there's a group of serial killers linked together by eye barcodes and a flower terrorist from the 60's, and there's also a special investigation department made up of two people (one being a nutjub)? The hell!?
Add - More
Musunde Hiraite
86/421/8 Similar to Hatsukoi Limited. The episodic, interlinked execution is the same, and the beautiful-eyed school girls resemble Mizuki's. I already want the recurring characters to get more time. Hopefully it lasts long enough for relationship advancement.
Add - More
Naruto
8422/70045/72 As much as I want to 9/10 it for the first half, the vastly inferior second half makes it an 8/10 at best. I'm hoping I'll start thinking highly of Naruto when I catch up again, but I doubt it...

-5/38-/5 Not sure about this, or where it's going. The sex scenes have been erotic (and cute) and the older womanxyounger man relationship is interesting - that's all I can say, really... I don't like how a beautiful woman has chased after a cold/dull guy.

Neon Genesis Evangelion
863/979/14 NEVER will I comprehend Eva's biblical reference jibberish plot. No Asuka kiss, or Misato sex (their facial art makes up for it). I preferred the manga, but now I find it long-winded, with less battles. The End of Eva CUMS (w/ Shinji) in omnibus 4.

Ookami no Kuchi: Wolfsmund Publishing
811/-3/- A 'bad guy wins' series. Cruel sketchy realism goodness. Started off with episodic failure to pass through "The Wolf's Maw". Now rebellion has taken over as Wolfram's fort comes under attack. Still good, but the farmer trio suicide squad was a bit daft.

Ookami to Koushinryou Publishing
847/-8/- The art captures the essence of Howo. Childish; flirtatious; lonely--EXPRESSIVE! As if skipping content (S2 anime) + rushing wasn't BAD, v8 used stuff from one of the two the skipped light novels... WHHHAT!? Might be best to read the novels instead.

Ookami to Koushinryou
827/1025/17 Explanation for S&WII's AWFUL lip-kiss: Howo was kissed on the CHEEK! Howo's flirted away ALL sexual tension, they've shared beds... and it's "I like you, " *kisses cheek*!? 24/7 Verbal foreplay, without penetration, makes me hate serialized romance anew.
Add - More
Otome no Teikoku Publishing
58/--/- Virgins (/all-girl school) fondle each other as lots of 'yuri' relationships advance, touch-by-touch. Has some of Towa's humour - girls crotch-fanning in class - but it's all a bit too cheap & pervy. Not on par with the author's other les-licious work.
Add - More
Otoyomegatari Publishing
935/-6/- The DETAILED period piece nomadic attire won me over. A slow but charming 'heroine switch' marriage slice-of-lifer. Mori had *A LOT* of fun with the IN-SYNC twins. v6 returned to Amir as her family went to war. MUCH better when focusing on romance.
Add - More
Ousama Game
69/251/5 I've read MANY survival manga. This is the first where couples get split by trolling text-messages; telling them to sleep with others or die. TONS of (fulfilled) NTR potential. The lead is a hypocrite--he needs to suffer for 'lending' his girl.
Add - More
Perfect Twin
827/492/5 Kitagawa's ability to create lovable females is limitless. On one-hand there's the energetic but shy Mitsuki dealing with feeling ALL of her sister's 'joy', and on the other there's her nympho, take-no-shit twin, Mitsumi. An original mix of twins & ESP.
Add - More
Poppoya Love Letter
75/5-/1 The last half is based on the same novel as the film 'Failan'. An unusual tragedy: a criminal has to collect the body of the woman he 'married' so she could stay in the country as a whore. Can love bloom after death? 50% translated--will never finish.
Add - More
Prison School Publishing
741/-4/- Essential for men-boys. Five braves are outnumbered 200-to-1 at a co-ed school, and a failed bath-peeking attempt lands them in femdom prison. Pissing, anal misunderstandings & sumo date prison escape keep me hooked. The art makes me crave a 'H' version.

Psyren
77/1451/16 Starts out like the shounen equivalent of Gantz, with empty backgrounds and little gore to match the death ratio. Since it's from SJ, there's no chance of it matching seinen survival intensity, but it's good enough to follow Viz's releases of... for now.
Add - More
Puppy Lovers
611/49-/3 In a parallel 2D universe, 20yo female wannabe mangakas are busty beauts (+virgins), despite never caring about looks. And when a 13yo boy moves in? TIME TO TEASE & FALL IN LOVE! Cute, full-colour and erotic... but most chapters last only a few pages.
Add - More
Region
76/24-/3 Region's message is clear: don't fuck with rodents. Pests turning into predators is a nice twist for the genre. I never thought I'd see an army of rats at war with humanity as they devour everyone in their path, but manga is nothing if not diverse!
Add - More
Renai Kaidan Sayoko-san Publishing
76/-1/- A seinen rom-com where an eccentric heroine falls in love first. That alone would've been enough for me, but she's also friends with 800+ spirits and isn't afraid to stalk the ONE man she can mate with. Made me laugh, but been no releases for a year...

Saikyou Densetsu Kurosawa
641/905/11 I liked it when it was about on old, lonely guy trying to connect with his work colleagues.. only to end up awkwardly making them dislike him. Since then, there's been NEVER-ENDING fights vs. middle schoolers, complete with Kaiji-esque OTT info/narration.
Add - More
Sakura no Hana Saku Koro
81/4-/1 Umibozu, selling flowers?... Better than the full-series (/Dapple) since it didn't outstay its welcome. And the ending wasn't premature; matching the one-shot execution. Sara continued travelling, after engraving herself into a boy's memory--THE END!
Add - More
Sakuranbo Syndrome - Cupid no Itazura II
848/985/11 Proves Taku can do manga without constant sex. The complicated love lives of the leads is the focus as Agawa juggles his tsundere career woman with a loli he must kiss daily in order to save. Exciting catfights. Women will be trying to rape Agawa in v6!?
Add - More
Sankarea
74/591/11 The anime offered a more artsy and... hands on depiction of Rea's psychological distress over her treatment by her CREEPY FUCK father. The manga came across as more rushed to my anime-first eyes. SEXY art... but why only childhood friend nipples!?
Add - More
Saru Lock
843/2434/22 Like City Hunter, without Ryo's slickness. The lead is a mere locksmith, yet is always saving busty damsels in distress. He's in his school's virgin club, and the SLOW romance subplot isn't helping. Nudity, action & hilarity = possible future fav.
Add - More
Sekitou Elegy
949/-4/15 'GOOD-FOR-NOTHINGS LOVE WOMEN WITH GUTS' = Truest chapter title EVER. I luuuv Chiiko's swearing, violence & sweatpants. 1.5 vols in, kissy-kissy. 2.5? Sex. 3.7? Cohabitation + sex positions. A romance where lower-class characters act human... Yay?
Add - More
Sense. Publishing
614/-1/- If Katsura had gone beyond ecchi romance, Sense would've been his. Haruki once drew doujins of his work, and it shows in this 'borderline H' delusional teacher-student sexing. An Iori lookalike receives detailed-panties lovin' + girl-of-the-chap fapter.
Add - More
Sensen Spike Hills
732/573/7 What do a pickpocket, slutty virgin and math wiz have in common? A plan to steal the questions for Japan's #1 university exam, of course! Strong starter but quickly bogged down by pacing woes. The granny 'use the force to steal' bullshit was annoying.
Add - More
Shi ga Futari wo Wakatsu Made Publishing
748/-6/- A modern day take on blind samurai badarsery. 'Future husband' predictions aside, ALL about sexy-cool art depicting showdowns between assassins & a hi-tech swordsman (as he acts as a bodyguard). Little story, but the 400-page releases keep it satisfying.
Add - More
Shigeshoushi
619/423/7 I REALLY wanted to like this (/Mihara), but it's BORING. Guy restores corpses, while sleeping around to keep his hands warm, and there's a girl he likes too much to sex. OK! V3 bored my man-tits off with its PAINFULLY straightforward embalming backstory.
Add - More
Shikeishuu 042
716/292/5 A story about a killer of seven being given a second chance... with a bomb in his head. I expected lots of blood and death, but I ended up getting a heart-warming tale about love (/blind girl) and gardening. Never let a woman do a man's job.
Add - More
Shingeki no Kyojin Publishing
754/-13/- Popularity made Isayama change the series. Ch50 was probably close to the original end. V13 tried to hide that plot threads are being pulled from ARSES. The fat merchant Mikasa owned at the start is SUDDENLY A VITAL COG IN A CONSPIRACY! STILL no answers.
Add - More
Shingeki no Kyojin: Before the Fall Publishing
77/-2/- For a spin-off, surprisingly decent. The 'son of a titan / SLAVE' premise is intriguing, and the lead's path from illiterate to FREEDOM impressed me. Taking on titans without 3DMG on horses = COOL! Will this tie into the main series somehow?...
Add - More
Shingeki no Kyojin: Kuinaki Sentaku
64/81/2 Levi: The Bad Boy Years. WHY make a backstory prequel where Levi starts out as the deadpan badarse in 3DMG he ends as!? The artist was afraid of changing his character. Do shoujo fanservice for fangirls or add depth. Underground setting = discarded ASAP.
Add - More
Shinobi Life
835/647/13 After a pacey start, involving ninjas falling from the sky + love, it's become clear SL wasn't meant to last. Beni's gone from "Bite me!" to crying for others, and the romance has stopped. But I'm finding myself heavily invested in the past ninjaing...

Shonan Junai Gumi!
7179/26720/31 After buying ten volumes, reading 179 chapters, Tokyopop dropped it. And even the fucking internet has failed me. WHY!?
Add - More
Sidonia no Kishi Publishing
510/-2/- No Biomega sketchy surrealism. Faces so stiff it's as if they're wearing masks + hard to follow. 'THROW HAREM AT LEAD' = awkwardly mainstream. Upcoming deaths so heavy-handed you know / don't care. Doesn't give off a survival vibe. I like KunTato.
Add - More
Spotted Flower Publishing
69/--/- SHORT chapters. Luckily, the pairing of a pregnant married woman, desperate for sex, and her otaku husband that can't bring himself to have sex with her is different and just about amusing enough to make it work. The wife's 'JUMP ON ERECT COCK!' schemes..
Add - More
Stardust Wink
69/491/11 People keep squirrels as pets? I'll have to catch one for Princess! The series is decent enough, setting up the childhood love triangle well and there being lots of humour making it an easy read... but there's nothing 'adult' or remarkable about it.

Suppli
630/565/10 Women LOVE this slow-paced, mature romance type. It's no surprise it has a TV adaptation. My problem is that nothing advances most of the time; Fuji going through never-ending romance drama and dealing with the same old work-related / gender stress.
Add - More
Suzuka
8106/17112/18 Suzuka acts like a bitch when showing affection... and she also acts like a bitch when she's not. Her skill is jumping high, and she only cares about sports. So, why would Yamato want to date her? On-hold until the Del Rey 13-15 release is out.

The Breaker
762/728/10 At one stage, I thought of TB as a Korean GTO, and placed it as my #2. But the focus has now shifted almost fully to martial arts nonsense; the realistic school life and intense drama getting replaced with shounen-esque, over the top action. Shame.
Add - More
The Legend of Maian Publishing
875/7514/14 v1-10: Felicia's seductively sexy personsality, aided by art that brought her to life, carried the series (LOVED the bickering-wuv). Then, everyone died, the lead got NTR'd & he became a slappy berserker. V11-12's seinen darkness quickly went 'JRPG-time'.
Add - More
The Yagyu Ninja Scrolls
860/1007/11 The main flaw is that the 7 women look similar and are hard to remember the names of. However, this is easy to ignore due to the intricate strategies Jyubei creates for them to kill their hate-worthy enemies. Lots of needless nudity, which I approve of.
Add - More
Thermae Romae
710/382/6 For a manga about bathing, the TOTAL LACK of T&A service disappoints. (Hadrian's non-mixed bathing law = SAD) EVERY chap has Lucius fall in water, come out in modern Japan, then take his insights back to Rome. Best chap? The phallus worship/riding one.
Add - More
Tiger & Bunny Publishing
74/-1/- So far, an ep-to-ep anime adaptation, with minor cuts (Tiger not being shown receiving a dressing-down). Katsura's art & the cool-fun have been carried over... but it just ain't the same without those varied, vibrant colours giving life to the costumes.
Add - More
Tokyo Ghoul
679/1448/14 Turns into a battle manga. So much for the UNIQUE ghoul culture coffee shop blend! Former enemies become TEAM NAKAMA & Touka becomes Useless Female. Kaneki's jump from passive-weak to sadistic-strong was SO rushed he may as well be a different character.
Add - More
Unbalance x2
872/829/10 BY FAR the best studentxteacher romance I've encountered. My next 10/10? EDIT: Read most of the v10 RAWs. A horribly rushed conclusion where awful melodrama comes out of nowhere and the lead turns into a pussy. Ruined.
Add - More
Underdog
79/171/3 A guy invisible to others ponders about why he exists... as he spies on girls with cameras. It isn't long before he's in a 'kill without killing' death-game, versus a psychopath. The poor lil' sis got vagi-sticked: RAGE!
Add - More
Usagi Drop
818/623/10 Although the mangaka is female, Bunny Drop is very much a tale of parenthood from a male perspective. The awkward devotedness of Daikichi and cute maturity of Rin work together well. It's a bit disappointing not to see any early MILF romance.
Add - More
Vagabond Publishing
831/-3/- V1-2 = the first Mifune film. V3 was a Shigurui re-read, minus the gore. The art takes it up a notch--Otsu (ugly crying faces~) depicted as innocence personified; her IQ enhancing her charm. Musahi's STILL killing with a wooden sword, 4yrs on. 33x£3-4...
Add - More
Vinland Saga Publishing
781/-11/- Making Snorfin the lead was a mistake. Most of the series focused on him caring for nothing other than revenge. The rest of the time he's been an empty shell. Without Ylfa's tomboy spunk or Askeladd's cunning mind, Farmland Saga has lost its edge.
Add - More
Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! Publishing
719/-2/- The anime was funnier. Practically Identical (/chapter merging) but, without THE most fittingly pathetic voice acting EVER, a lot of humour gets lost. Feels deceptively less substantial w/ its short chapters. I those awkward cringe-pauses from the anime.
Add - More
Witch Craft Works Publishing
614/-3/- A poker-faced giantess, protecting average high school guy #1001... whilst carrying him like a princess. Sakaki from Azumanga entered the shota-wuv dream. Shame it has no story & silly 'enemies' that change each chap. Nailed on past-life gender reversal.
Add - More
XO Sisters
713/173/3 Koreans = HAWT ART! Generic Bleach rip-off plot, but its humour sells it: the tough guy lead being sent to an all-girl school... as a gay. His bickering love with Young-Hee = YES! +1 for 4x heroines NOT being T&A fluff. -- EDIT: Discontinued = NOOOOO!!1

Yankee-kun to Megane-chan
713/2192/23 YtM falls somewhere between stupid and entertaining. It makes a change from the usual opposites attract stories; it involving a delinquent girl (posing as a glasses wearing class rep) getting into a comical relationship with a delinquent guy.
Add - More
Yokokuhan
77/221/3 An internet vigilante society-reject foursome vs. a dominatrix cyber crime woman hunting them. A social commentary, appealing to modern readers/kids. Outstandingly realistic art, weighed down by unrealistic 'I CYBER COP; EXPLAIN WAT FLAME WAR' dialogue.
Add - More
Yotsubato! Publishing
734/-5/- After five volumes, the lack of direction and randomness is getting a bit if an issue, but it remains highly enjoyable to read. As much as I enjoy FAR darker stories, it's nice to read about a retarded little girl every once in awhile.
Add - More
Zetman Publishing
780/-7/- Katsura is GOD at drawing girls in panties. But when he strays away from love, he only offers convoluted explanations as he copies from other 'dark hero' works. Without "Auntie" bath-time and orgies, idc. Needs more romance/sex. On-hold until finished.
