When I first read the summary of this manga it didn't appeal to me at all, but when I actually read the manga, it sucked me in. It's a crazy tale about kids stuck in a corrupted world where they face discrimination, deadly drugs, gang war, and so much more. It's absolutely mind boggling how dark this manga is yet it's so revitalizing. The struggles the characters go through, and the values and outlook on life the characters in this book have are incredible.
Though the summary did say that Fire Candy is about kids who are "halves" I didn't feel any thing different about
them at all. They seemed like normal kids (past all the dark stuff they do) to me despite how different their genetic coding was. They lived hard lives because of how they were born, and this book shows readers all the hardships and dirt they had to go through. It's twisted, deep, dark, crazy, and I absolutely love it.
The art is completely unique to me. The cover (profile picture) was alright to me, but when you actually look inside the book you can tell how truly wonderful the art is. The characters are all good-looking, some parts of manga look truly realistic, and overall, it's simply a delight to look at.
The characters are all special and wonderful. You can tell how dark their lives have been and it seriously makes me depressed on all the things they had to face throughout their life. Yet despite all that, they seem like happy children. Warped but happy. The manga shows all of them in a teenage gang. They all look happy to just live and fight together with their friends and it's just awesome to see them enjoying life and shoving the unwanted discrimination up all those anal attentive people.
Mostly the manga is set in the teenage gang life. They show a little childhood but mainly the story and plot consists of this special teenage gang fighting with other gangs, and stuff like that.
I loved the manga and I hope people enjoy it too!
