Synopsis

Tegamibachi takes place in the land of AmberGround, a place of perpetual night only partially illuminated by an artificial sun. Lag Seeing works as a Letter Bee at the government delivery service named the Bee Hive. He travels with his Dingo, Niche, and her "pet," Steak and is entrusted with the hearts of everyone in AmberGround as he delivers their packages.

Background

Tegamibachi was initially serialized in the Monthly Shounen Jump, until the magazine went defunct in June 2007, and moved to newly-launched Jump SQ on November 4. Prior to the launch of Jump SQ, in October, a special chapter, Tegamibachi to Dingo, was published as a one-shot in Weekly Shounen Jump.

Tegamibachi has been published in English as Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee by VIZ Media under the Shonen Jump imprint since September 1, 2009, and started serialization in the March 2009 issue of their monthly Shounen Jump anthology. The final volume is set to release on March 7, 2017. In Europe, the series has been licensed in Italy by Panini Comics under their Planet Manga division, Kana in France, and Planeta DeAgostini in Spain.

"You're the first man who's ever made me wear pants" - Niche

If a line like that by the 2nd chapter, doesn't strike your attention as amusing than Letter Bee(or Tegami Bachi in Jap) may not be the manga for you.

I was first attracted to this manga through the anime adaptations 1st season which had aired recently, and wanting to know what happened after ep.25 piqued my interest to read on.

Without going into detail and providing spoilers; TB is a unique tale on its own which escapes from the mediocrity of school life stories which seems to be the common setting for most manga read more

Be gentle with me because this is probably my first manga that I'm up to release date's with.

A story about a land, covered in pure darkness. With no light other than radiance of a man made star, hanging over the main capital. Under the light of this star, a job is being taken place, a job to deliver letters, and the heart contained in these letter's. The story follows a young boy named Lag seeing and his dingo (familiar) Niche, and her snack Steak. Together, they take on the task of defeating giachu, and delivering letter's at any cost. Their goal. To save their dear read more

I would give to this manga a solid 9 but until I see more development in the future chapters, I'll refrain from rating it so higly.

Story - 9
The plot seems to be childish and silly when you read it, it was very slow and it's still very slow during the last released chapters, but I realized many questions are being answered lately in the newest chapters, furthermore even though at a first glance it will look silly to you, it gets darker and darker.

I won't say it's the best drawn manga I have read, but if you can exclude the "off models" most read more

I started reading Letter Bee in shonen jump, like most beginings of manga, its a slow start , however the story continued at a slow pace. the main character is the biggest crybaby I have ever seen, and his crying starts to get repetitive after a while. The artwork is done well at least, barren wastelands, huge forrests, and small towns are the many sceneries I have seen so far. If the character of Niche didnt appear, I would have dropped the series out of boredom. Overall, Letter Bee moves at a snails pace, but from what I have read so far, the story could read more
