With this manga being canceled, I found it fitting to rewrite my review.
Metallica Metalluca had good promise. It never reached it's potential.
The art is what you'd expect from a shonen manga. Inventive monsters, nice background and good character design. It's nothing too beautiful, but it looks good.
The characters, although they might be a bit standard, are fun. Doesn't change the fact that it's still a goofy main characters, a sexy girl and a wimpy sidekick.
The story. Where to begin about the story. A boy with a dream, having to take an exam first. It's cliché. At first I thought it would pick up, get its
own vibe and feel, and take its own course. It didn't. Cliché after cliché, the reason it got canceled. And it's too bad, because the main idea was a lot of fun: minerals with special powers, archeology etc. But the clichés, they killed it.
I'm sad to say, but: this manga sucks. Don't try it, there's no point.
Thank you and good day :)
