Synopsis

Sora is a young energetic boy looking forward to exploring the world with his friends, Riku and Kairi. The threesome is working hard on completing a raft that will allow them to leave their island but one day a mysterious force causes Sora to gain a special weapon known as the Keyblade. He fights some weird monsters and gets transported to a strange town. Meanwhile, Donald and Goofy leave their castle to search for the king and the chosen one who holds the "key" to saving the world. Sora is attacked again by creatures known as Heartless but is helped out by an old man named Cid and a warrior named Leon. He eventually meets up with Donald and Goofy and they join forces to go search for his friends and the King.

"Alright, Our next project is the Kingdom Hearts manga, now most of you should be familiar with this great game. Now how do we proceed? What parts of Kindgom Hearts made it such a great game? I have some ideas as to how we proceed.
1. For the story: We use the beginning and ending videos from each world and pretend like there's a coherant plot going when really all we're doing is rushing a plot that really shouldn't be rushed.
2. The videogame has alot of action and RPG elements in it. Let's keep the ridiculous spells like "Freeze" and "Cure" and read more

Well being a extreme Kingdom Hearts fan of course I had to read the manga. For those of you who don't know Kingdom Hearts is a manga based on the Video game so of course I'm going to compare it to the game. It's starts off in Destiny Islands where Sora, Riku and Kairi are attempting to escape their island by building a raft. Of course the night before they leave there's a big storm, (who didn't see that coming?) and next thing you know everyone's seperated and Sora has a giant key which can some how defeat the shadowy bug like Heartless.

Kingdom Hearts the Manga is Based on Kingdom Hearts 1 for PlayStation 2. The series is my most favourite video game ever, this manga started in October 2003 and ended in January 2005, and it's 4 volumes long. But unlike other mangas, it reads like a normal comic, left to right instead of right to left, which is so very very sad. Just so you know, the other Kingdom Hearts manga's based on the other games read right to left, only this one is different.

Story 10-10
There are some things left out, that was in the games and not in the manga, but the story's the read more

Ah yes, Kingdom Hearts, one of my favorite games made into a manga. Okay, lets get started shall we?

Story: The story was the same with Sora getting a keyblade blah blah he fights heartless blah blah. The only problem I have with the story is that it was very fast paced, which took away the excitement for me. But, I'll give it a 8/10.

Art: The art was fairly good, it really showed the light in people hearts, (just a little Kingdom Hearts joke). But, the art had a childish look to it. So, I'll just give it a 9/10.

Character: The read more
