First I thought "Hey, just another sports manga", but the amazing thing is that it IS just another sports manga with so much more.
The story is quite ordinary, but as I mentioned earlier I really got captured in the mood and couldn't help myself but get dragged in to what is happening. It's all about the power of team mates and sticking together in their try to reach a common goal, and the spirit of the characters is amazing. Actually it was the charachters that made me give this an "overall 10", they just feel so real. In some manga, many of the characters are "over the top" and leaves you with a feeling of Im-the-greatest-and-most-beaytiful that makes them unreal, but in Cross Over they seem like you could meet them on the street. You get to learn about the characters as the story progresses, and it feels wonderful to see them evolve. One thing I did notice was that even though the St Mariannu team and some of the cheerleaders were well described, most of the other teams just seem like one person with the same style and the same thoughts (not everyone, but overall).
The art maybe isn't the most outstanding or complicated, but it fits the story and express the mood and feelings that is described. If it's something the mangaka needs to work on it's environment, but even the background is really good.
Cross Over is definitly a great manga that fits both boys and girls in many different ages! read more

The story wasn't to complicated and it was easy to follow but only enjoyable to read, and the characters are all well drawn and got their own (incredably cute) personality. Yes, the story in the beginning wasn't all my cup of tea, but the more I read the more I fell in love with the humor and the characters.
The art overall maybe isn't all that outstanding, but allthough it was sometimes a little plain the drawing style is cute and wery sutable towards the story.
