I am nowhere done with this manga, even though it’s done the scanlating is only 15/75. So while I patiently wait for the next volumes I will review the first 4.
Compared to her other manga this one is, to me, a little weaker in feeling the charcters but here goes;
This manga is funny and sweet and I have feeling, even though I haven’t read the rest, it will stay funny and sweet. If you’re looking for something like Kanon or Nana, this is not it.
Summary above is pretty specific so I won't make you read my version.
Kang Da is funny, weird, and kicks ass,
she’s used to being on her own because of her carefree dad and she eats like it’s no one business but the reason for that is explained. Even though she is leader of her gang she hates bullying or unfair fights. When she’s not being a leader though she is being what she is..a girl.
Woo Hyok is the male lead, and his background is still a mystery but all we know is that he is the best fighter, even though, he got his butt handed to him and Kang Da had to save him. He was hated in his old school and has had to transfer a lot. He finds her interesting and shows his feeling for her in a way an elementary schooler does, by picking on her. All that’s left is hair pulling but there’s still a lot of chapters to go so who knows.
Jung In is Kang Da’s best friend since small. It is obvious to everyone that he has a crush o her and wants to impress her. He’s the background steady character. He’s the one I felt most for just because he’s tryly in love with her and she doesn’t see it.
Did I like this manga? Yes. It was a fun read. But there are a lot of gray areas, that hopefully will get less gray as the volumes increase. I’m still trying to figure out if Kang Da knows that Woo Hyok is the guy that kissed her. If she does, she never mentioned it and the kiss seemed to be forgotten. For a girl who clearly has never had a boyfriend she doesn’t give it more than 4 thoughts.
The drawing style I was not a fan of. Sometimes their eyelashes are blonde? And sometimes they are filled in to look dark. The characters meshed together for me. I was confused between two characters that looked alike, their attitudes were similar and both a best friend that the only difference was the hairstyle, so yeah it threw me off a little. The fighting wasn’t great and the legs twisted in unrealistic angles sometimes.
Overall I don’t regret picking it up and I will also continue reading it, but they could take their time scanlating. That says it all.
When I read the summary, I had the idea, that it would possibly be clique. However, even if a story is cliqued, and doesn't have anything that makes it unique, it can still be good, and enjoyable, even if it is for just a read. However, something that I feel is very important to any storyline that revolves around fighting, even if it is of the Romance genera, is to have good, well thought out fight sceens.
Le'ts just say, the coegraphy didn't mesh well in the panels, and turned what was interesting art, into a bombshell for me. Some panels were overcrowded, and the flow
between panels didn't sit well. Actually, this ran through the one chapter that I did read, not just in the fight scenes. It was completly stiff, and no composition control. The story was hard to follow, and I felt like I had been thrown into the middle.
Speaking about being thrown into the middle, that was what I felt about the characters, that I was thrown into the middle of them too. The character introduction, there isn't any character development, and instead, facts about them are thrown aqwardly into the readers face. The most interesting conception was introduced at the very end, and all seem very sterotypical.
