En Passant is one of your typical shonnen manga. With a bit of a twist.With having the most negative main character ever!

Since I noticed a lack of reviews for this series I will be writing one, but a short one, nevertheless.

En passant is a chess move which can occur "immediately after a player moves a pawn two squares forward from its starting position, and an enemy pawn could have captured it had it moved only one square forward.

En Passant was a nice short manga. Simple charecters who in reality have supernatural powers and are playing a dangerous deadly game so the winner can rule over the world. In those 20 chapters we could see some good stuff, about the day-by-day of some high school students, some nice fights and a lot of laughs. The thing I liked the most is that each character is a personification of a feeling, were his/her actions are based on the mood or humor they are feeling in the moment, and this surely affect the plot as the story progresses. A simple finale, without great mind-blows, but read more
