Story: The story is original and cute. The prince’s secret is a pretty good one that sets up the rest of the story and develops the relationship between the two main characters. For a story that is less than 50 pages long it goes quite smoothly and finishes up nicely.
Art: The art was all right, but it could have been better. There wasn’t really too much besides the main characters, so judging the art is a bit hard. If this had become a full-length series I fell that the artwork would have evolved quite nicely along the way.
Characters: The characters are very enjoyable and their interaction is very humorous. The whole story mainly revolves around how the two main characters interact, so it’s nice that their personalities are so well defined, otherwise the story would not have been good at all.
Enjoyment: It’s a very cute series that also deals with how hard rumors can be on people. The ending is predictable, but you still want to read it anyways. Anyone looking for a simple romance one shot will definitely enjoy this story.
Rumored Girlfriend not only deals with romance but with how tough rumors can be on a person during high school. It’s a sweet story that leaves the reader with a warm fuzzy feeling when they’re done.

Story: As I said, random. It was interesting, but pretty predictable throughout the whole thing. The side story “Very Dark White Day” also wasn’t that good. There’s not really much more I can say about that.
Art: The art was decent. It was a quince style, and I found I really liked it. It was a bit award at times, but overall it was pretty wonderful.
Characters: The characters are very original in their own way. The way they interact with one another is really enjoyable to read. There’s at least one trait in at least one of the characters that anyone should be able to relate to.
Enjoyment: Not the best series I’ve read, but definitely good for its length and plot. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to read comical romance.
While the romance is enjoyable, there’s another underlying theme of acceptance, which ends up completing this story. As stated before, it’s very good for it’s length, and since it’s so short it wont take much of your time to read.

Story: The story is pretty straight forward, a girl going around looking for a boyfriend. Doesn’t sound too exciting, except for the fact that anyone who has been through high school can easily relate to the situations. It’s almost as if Wataru Yoshizumi might have been writing about her own high school experiences.
Art: Yoshizumi is an amazing artist. The work for this was absolutely phenomenal. Her art style is pretty quince as well, so you don’t become bored with the art very easily. Yoshizumi also has an amazing talent for fashion, which keeps you reading just to see what cute clothes Yuka was going to bring out next. I found myself wanting her wardrobe every time she came out with a new outfit. (This is pretty special since I’m not into fashion much.)
Characters: The great thing about these characters is that you probably went to high school with someone like them. They all act like normal high school teenagers, suffering from the pressures of relationships and studies. They all have talents, but there’s nothing that makes them superhuman.
Enjoyment: It was really nice just reading about normal people for once. In all, it was pretty predictable, and yet still subtle in some ways. There were some parts that seemed to be lagging just a bit, but other than that it was really good.
Random Walk is one of those stories that you need to be in the mood to read, or else you’re just going to get fed up with it. So, next time you’re in the mood to read a cute romance story, go pick up Random Walk!

Story: As I said before, the story is original for a time travel plot. It takes awhile to get into it, but once you do it’s simply amazing. I’m pretty sure that most of the history is actuate in the story, save for a few things which are mentioned in the last book. The whole plot is a rich tapestry of excitement and sorrow, but always pulling you along with the characters and allowing you to understand just what there are going through. It has been said of many series that they can make you feel as if you are part of the story. While the story is spectacular, Threads of Time is just not one of those books. Instead of standing beside the characters during their struggles, it seems as if their emotions are more emphasized and therefore you feel more for these characters than many other stories.
Art: The art in Threads of Time starts out like many series. The author is not yet use to drawing the characters in their settings and plot, but it gradually becomes better as the author gains more experience with the characters. I’m not saying the art in Threads is bad, not by a long shot, and thankfully it doesn’t change too drastically throughout the story so that the characters look completely different at the end than what they did at the beginning. It’s very wonderful, but the beginning could be better, especially the parts set in modern Korea.
Character: The character development and their relationships with one another in this story is absolutely phenomenal. You end up feeling amazingly close to at least one character because their personalities are so well defined, even the ones that don’t stick around for very long. The best thing about this series is its characters. They are just so wonderful that I really can’t say more than that.
Enjoyment: Once you get through all the necessities at the beginning the series is wonderful. If you’re into action and/or romance then you’ll love this series. That’s another good point of Threads. Even if you don’t like action, you can still enjoy it because of the romance, and vis versa. It’s an incredible series. I think I’ve reread it about four times now and I’m still enjoying it.
Overall the series is an undiscovered gem. It’s sad that not many people seem to even know it exist but that’s how it is with many of the best manga unfortunately. This is one of the few series I have given a 10, just because it is so deeply moving and was able to affect me in such a monumental way. read more
