In 1998 Masashi Kishimoto's career had yet to take off. This was a time before Naruto had entered serialisation, a time by which Kishimoto had run into some walls early on in career as any starting manga-ka would trying to get a shōnen manga serialised with Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine. Believe it or not, before his hit manga Naruto took the world by storm, Kishimoto was on the ropes and on the verge of giving up on the shōnen genre altogether and wanted to try his hand at a seinen manga. You guessed it, that series was Mario, an unpublished manga that predates even read more

A very stylish, exuberant one-shot which has really left me wanting more. Certainly theirs a world of difference between Mario & Naruto, in terms of artwork, setting, dialogue. Still Kishimoto has shown us his great understanding of western organised crime, and has managed to create an interesting array of characters in the process. Kishimoto has demonstrated his boldness with lots of brash and blood covered pages, which are very delightful to look at. Mario is very well written and Kishimoto has really outdone himself this time. It’s likely that Mario will leave you hoping that Kishimoto makes the transition from one-shot to serialisation.
