Eighteen years ago, a powerful monument was discovered on a mysterious island. The monument contained data only certain people could extract, who then became students of the island's school. By extracting the data, the students are able to summon a creature that they can fight with. Of these people, Satou Taketora is your typical lazy kid who doesn't do anything. Hence, he's ranked dead last. But one day, he's dragged into a battle with his old childhood friend, and to everyone's surprise...his summon has more than meets the eye...
Now i don't do reviews. its not me so but i just had that feeling to write my opinion on this one especially. I'l keep it short and sweet.
+ What i liked:
> Nice characters, the MC reminds me of that in Trinity Seven and is actually not useless at all.
> Nice art, to me it felt very consistent throughout.
> It was actually quite a funny read for me.
- What i Disliked:
>Its too short, in the end the manga was axed and thus resulting in a really rushed ending in the last two chapters. Its a shame really as it was quite a fun read but
you know, harem manga's don't seem to selling great in Japan for the most part apparently.
> The story and the world the manga seemed to have been in wasn't exactly explained properly in my opinion and there is so much more you could include it is unbelievable.
Now apart from the unavoidable events that stopped the development of the manga in its tracks it is a very funny and enjoyable read. The light novels are still being written according to some of the discussions i have read so i would recommend you read those if you didn't like how the manga ended or you wanted more explanation etc etc...
Overall i would give it a fair: 7/10 - Very enjoyable and has alot of potential, its a shame it was axed.
Boy was this horribly mediocre. So the exposition variety hour stars senor generic shonen protagonist whos name I never bothered memorizing and his harem of equally generic girls that you can only tell apart because of their breast size. Despite how much exposition they throw at your face, I still barely have a clue of what the hell was happening in this manga. Here's all that I remember. So this manga is like Baka and Test where they can summon these creatures and its set in a school of contemporary future land... I think. But unlike Baka and Test, it lacks everything else. No funny
or interesting characters, no nice art style that was pleasing to the eye, just blah. It also kinda reminds me of Needless since there's like this hole that contains something or another, I honestly can't remember. So back to that one thing about them being able to summon creatures, so the main character's summon thingy is supposedly the most powerful thing on the planet, but it's just this goofy looking tiger thing that reminds me of Taiga from Tora Dora. hmmmm... tora kiss... tora dora.... coincidence. I guess the point of that was to be #lolirony but I honestly don't care for that stuff. This manga kind of reminds me of Breaker New Waves in the sense that they were trying so hard to be cool and edgy but to me it just comes off as annoying.
The positive things in this manga
+The art is pretty nice
+The man male character does not feel like a cardboard cutout like a lot of male man characters do in this sort of manga.
+The main character is powerful, but not some all mighty bad ass
+It is very enjoyable from start to finish
The Negatives in this manga
-The female characters are ones you have seen in other manga and anime before
-The ending is very obviously rushed and not well planned.
-The story itself is fairly boring and not anything new
Overall the story and characters are nothing to great, however I just found myself enjoying this as
I was reading it. If you are generally a fan of manga and anime like this I would check it out. If not this will not be the one to change you into a fan of this sort of story.
I'm too lazy to write a long review so I'll tell you what I liked and disliked.
1]The MC Tora was a fresh breath of life to me who was fed up with reading about spineless harem MC's who are annoyingly dense about the girls who love him.
2)The art was crisp and clear even if it was a bit simple at times.
3)The girls were all cute.
4)Looking at Tora doesn't make you wonder what the girls like about him.Sure he is a pervert and a lazy bum but he can be charming when he wants to be,can be honest to a fault about unnecessary thing,is funny but
considerate and is definitely OP even if he hides his powers.
1)Reading the manga makes makes it painfully clear that the mangaka had the idea for a great long running series planned out but unfortunately it was axed.So most of the plot devices the mangaka planted was left ignored.Nothing gets really explained either about the manga universe expect for whats on the surface.
2)The harem candidates were all a bit clichéd-There was the mandatory childhood friend,the smart girl,the senior,the sister who turned out to have no blood relations,there was even the beginnings of a teacher candidate but as I said before the manga was axed so it never got anywhere.
3)Some scenes were a bit clichéd too-alone with a girl during power cut,mysterious girl suddenly appearing and getting mad that he doesn't remember their childhood promise,MC being introduced as weak but is actually OP,etc.
In short if you want a light hearted comedy with a sprinkle of romance and action and will not get mad that such a great series got axed without the story being allowed to develop definitely read it.The manga rides on the shoulders of the MC Tora-the bad ass,lazy,OP,kick ass natural gigolo who's got a spine for a change.
