Having previously watched the Air animé, I was expecting what is generally done with franchises which are both available as animé and as Manga. Usually, both the animé and the Manga follow the same story, but the Manga is the one to go into further depth. In Air, it is the opposite.

The Air Manga becomes extremely disappointing instantly, due to the fact that only the bare bones of a coherent storyline is present, and no depth, or reasoning behind what happens in the story is shown at all.

Due to the lack of the story being covered in depth, the characters are also not covered read more

I really liked anime. It's a great mystical story that makes you think. Usually manga is better than its screen version and I began reading Air.

The art is rather simple, without lots of shadows. Eyes look like glass, their expression don't change. It's a big minus, isn't it? I mean, in anime seiyu can fix some lacks of grafic with their voice but manga's art must "sound" and "live" that reader should believe it.

The storytelling is really bad. There was left only Misuzu's arc. But how about other girls, Minagi, Kano, Michiru? The answer is easy. Their arcs isn't showed. They are just like read more

Out of the three great Key anime (I refuse to acknowledge Little Busters until a, it gets more popular, and b, until I've actually seen it), general consensus seems to be that Air is the weakest of them, with me agreeing to that consensus. Sure, it's still good and all, but doesn't pack as much of a punch as Clannad and Kanon. The anime either needed to eb longer, to give Kanno's and Minagi's arc more background and to develop its rather tacked-on backstory even more, or it needed to be shorter and a more focused story concentrating only on Misuzu and chopping out the read more

I love Key's works, and Air is one of my favorites. I love both the anime series and the film. However, just recently I realized that I had never read the manga version of Air, which has a pretty good score, but has met some criticism. I decided to read the manga for myself to see if I liked it or not, and also because I loved the anime and movie. Now I have finished reading this manga, and I can honestly say I really enjoyed it. I read the three reviews for this manga adaptation on this website, which are all not too positive. read more
