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. The opponent captures the just-moved pawn as if taking it "as it passes" through the first square" (Wikipedia). It makes sense for a series with Chess as the plot theme.

I had no high expectations at first and I was just expecting a nice read. But I was read more

Well, when I finished reading the manga, I knew I had to review. This is the first time I reviewed on a manga.

First things first, the main character is a total pessimist which offers something new. His thought process is kind of unique? I must say. He is the most pessimistic character I have met.

The side characters are a bit lacking in my opinion. Not much of a total development considering that there are only 20 chapters, but the main character has certainly grown.

The plot was quite interesting but I wished that it had shown quite more fight scenes especially the ending. I hoped read more

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
