Even if you aren't a fan of the KoF games this is still pretty fun.
I have made a whole video review on this if you feel like it you can check it out.
Now to go over the most important things:
Story - 4
This is so low because the evil dudes in the story and the overall pace reeealy suck. Now moment to moment battles and the small charming moments are GREAT but the general narrative feels really bad we have 3 big evil dudes in the spawn of 30 chapters... do I need to elaborate more? While I know almost nothing about the KoF lore even
if I did things still would feel awkward on that front.
Art - 9
Everything here depends on the art. The characters are charming and have a good line once in a while but for the most part, they are so personable and have so much character because they are illustrated with great care and passion. The same goes for the "battle system" it has a big "if it looks cool we'll do it" kinda vibe and I'm all for it since it does look cool.
Characters - 7
There are SO many characters in here and all of them get a little moment to shine... it's genuinely impressive. And if a character gets the special treatment and we see them a lot you can be sure that they will be charming as fuck. But the bad guys are still characters of course and they are just bad "cuz why not" ... or at least I'm speculating because the manga doesn't even give us a sentence on their motivation.
Enjoyment - 8
The whole thing goes by very fast so the severity of the bad narrative doesn't really hit. But what does hit is all of the great and full of soul fights that are in here and that's why you should give the manga a chance for good 10 chapters or so.
Overall - 6
Personally, I really liked it but trying to stay semi-objective in here I can't give it anything more than a 6. However, don't let that stop you, and go look at some gorgeous buff dudes fight.
