I'lll just get to the point here: it wasn't very good. I'm not sure if it's just me, but I did NOT understand any of it???? Like firebird357 says, the plot for the main characters, Hanako and Ryoji, were rushed in WAY too fast but at the same time I understand why the auther did this. It's just like a movie; when the plot for the main character(s) isn't directly shown or said, we instead get flashbacks with bits and pieces of what happened until everything comes together and we understand why the main character(s) are the way they are. But even then, I don't understand why or why the author wrote it this way. I DO NOT want to spoil the ending but I'm guessing there was a twist in there, which threw me off and made me even more irritated with this manga!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Overall, the characters leaned toward pretty good, but because of the plot, sadly, it ruined good characters. I thought the art was absolutely flawless, capturing every emotion the characters felt, so I definitely gave the art rating a 10/10. Giving an overall rating for this manga was very hard for me because the characters were good, the art was outstanding, but the story was so lacking and disappointing???? So I almost dropped it after chapter 2, but decided not to in hopes of it getting better, which it never did in my opinion. Oh! I almost forgot one more thing...the what were supposed "exciting" and "suspenseful" scenes never came. I never felt neither of those emotions nor the feeling you get in your stomach when reading horror manga and you can't click the next button fast enough. I read there will be an Anorexia: Shikabane Hanako wa Kyoshokushou 010?? And to be honest with you, I'll probably read that because knowing me, I have to finish reading something no matter how awful it is. Maybe we will get more insight to everything? More clarity? Ugh...hopefully...So all in all, don't waste your time on this manga...Or do to find out for yourself? I wish a chapter 10 would be released so I can have some closure. At least.read more
I've never written a review before and so this will probably suck, ( also im not huge on manga this is probly my fourth so far) at the time I've written this only three volumes have been released. To be honest the plot for how the main character was thrown into this whole situation was EXTREMLY rushed, that being said I don't really mind. Why you ask? That must be because of the intense suspence I felt during their first dinner. Now I won't give away any spoilers but I very much like how people are being tied into the story...and dinner time. I gave it an over all score of 9 and honestly the only reason why it's not a perfect 10 is for the way the beginning was rushed. But this manga looks very promising and I will most definitely be waiting for the new releases. read more
The title "Anorexia" misled me. I was expecting a slice of life kind of manga and thus my reaction when I started reading this was, to summon it up: wtf.
Yet I couldnt stop but continue to read it, I was captivated.
I can't tell you how it goes because it will spoil the surprise, and boy did I love that twist!
In a way you can say they're all psychologically mad and easy. Because of some similarity and connection this whole story comes to life.
The first dinner. The first kiss. The first blood spill.
But why is this happening?
This you find out at the end.
How they made it romantically bloody makes this even better!
The only sad thing is how they rushed it too much ;-;..
This manga would have been so much better if they did not rush it.
They tried to include so many stories, it was too much for the chapters to handle.
I have nothing to say about the art. It was eye pleasing, even the gore.read more
