ALMIGHTY X10 is a very good manga I stumbled upon, having everything that makes a shoujo manga enjoyable and nothing from what makes it horrible. If you like slice-of-life shoujo with a school setting, then this one is definitely for you.
The story revolves around a quirky, fun girl, Ten, whose nickname is "the sweet monster". She meets one of the employees of the "Almighty" company, a boy trained to be able to do just about anything. After a night together at a party, the "prince" goes back to his workplace, but leaves his name tag (necklace) with Ten. Wanting to meet him again and
give back his necklace, she starts searching for him and ends up finding out that the "Almighty" company also has an academy. And that the boy she is searching for attends it. Given that, she decides to try to become a student herself, and that is where her adventures begin…
The characters are also quite interesting, or at least alright. The most important part about them is the way they interact with each other, their relationships being natural and free of any feeling of awkwardness. The pace at which the story progresses also helps with relationship-building. Also, THANKFULLY, no "dumb and weird" female MC. She's actually smart enough, and her quirkiness doesn't feel that forced, either.
The art is quite beautiful, a perfect match for the demographic and genre.
I enjoyed this very much, it's a funny, short manga that's there just to give you some fun. If you're in the mood for a cute, fun story about some middle school kids (around 14-15 years I think) fooling around and having fun at their school and job, go on, give it a try!
(Story: 8, art: 9, character: 8, enjoyment: 8, overall: 8)
(sadly, the translation was most likely dropped tho, but there's no cliffhanger at least)
