Synopsis

Beings who possess animal-like powers walk among humans in this alternate universe. These mysterious mutants, the +Anima, are shunned by society. Four outcasts in particular—Cooro, a boy with crow-like powers; Husky, a fish-boy; Senri, a bear +Anima; and a girl named Nana, who wields the power of the bat—search for others like themselves while trying to gain acceptance in a world cruel to anyone or anything that is different.

Ahh, +Anima. Half the readers probably stumbled upon this manga because its name is, alphabetically, one of the first to appear on a manga-hosting website.The other half probably just liked the word "anima" because it sounded pretty. Despite what coincidental "methods" we readers used to find it, +Anima was far from something meagerly amusing, and in fact, was engrossingly endearing in its own right. You can tell a professional storyteller from an amateur one, and Natsumi Mukai is by far the former. A story that's able to be told with stunning and consistent aesthetics, married with heartwarming character development and engaging subplots is difficult to read more

First of all +Anima is a great manga for anybody that loves great artwork and awesome characters. It isn't for everyone becouse there isn't a lot to the story and there isn't a lot of action.

Story: The story received a 7/10 because it wasn't all that special. The four main characters,Cooro, Husky, Senri, and Nana, walk around the world of +Anima in search of a true home. This doesn't sound all that special but it is because on their travels they encounter villains and friends alike, as well as other +Anima which makes the story a little more interesting.

Art: This is what I think read more

I'm very surprised there isn't already a review for +anima.

+Anima is a very unique manga in it's storyline and characters. Although +anima doesn't have a set storyling except for the characters exploring new places and meeting acquaintances, it is still very enjoyable.

The characters are very well developed. Frequently at the end of a volume, Natsumi Mukai will often have a page or two describing the characters. As you progress in the manga, you'll notice that the characters become more and more developed with traits that make them unique.

I really loved this manga for it's great art, wonderful characters, and it was very enjoyable. read more

+anima was overall an amazing manga I enjoyed every chapter too my hearts content. the charters felt like they had real personality's and I felt that they really grew over the time this manga continued, The story was amazing and I could for the most part never guess what would happen next there were many twists and turns and it was so well built and thought-out there was never a dull moment in this manga. The art was really cute but at the same time quite detailed which I enjoyed.

There was a very calming sensation around the whole thing but sometimes I would crack up read more
