I thought the story was fairly original. It captured my attention because it was realistic. I could actually see how most of things would work in real life. The plot-line was intruiging and it wasn't really predictable. Some parts of it we're kind of cliché and predictable but most of it wasn't.
I love all of Arina Tanemura's art. Her art 's really detailed. You could see how all the folds in the clothes are realistic and I love the way she draws her eyes. The clothes are very pretty too!
The characters were interesting. Although it was kind of wierd with Maora and him playing as a girl... The character's personalities were all different which made it interesting. A lot of them seemed to have split personalities too..
Shinshi Doumei Cross is definitely enjoyable. It was a bit of a cliffy at the end of every chapter which made you want to read more about. Sometimes due to not so great art, you'd want to quit reading but definitely not for this manga. The art's great and the story line is a real attention grabber.
Overal, I thought it was pretty good. The ending was a bit wierd and a bit of a "typical Arina Tanemura ending". It was slightly predictable at the end (although Haine's statement wasn't...) It left you wanting more. You wanted to find out what happened AFTER it ended.
I think this is Arina Tanemura's best work so far! read more
