Birdmen is one of my new favorite manga.

Story: 7/10
There is a lot of time spent on how a child adapts to growing wings alongside his friends, and how to adjust to his new life. It is very practical and lighthearted, until the focus shifts from the main character and his friends to the evolution of the species itself. This is important to note for those who might not like science fiction.

Unfortunately, there were a lot of characters and plot lines that were not utilized to their fullest extent. Some of the series' biggest mysteries are not explained very well, and this can be unsatisfying when read more

I hate pushing excessive praise especially this early in a manga's life, but with Tanabe Yellow's Birdmen I feel safe to declare this an outstanding work. A story after my own heart, Birdmen explores the nuance of the typically coming-of-age, call-to-action hero stories with a unique sense of characterization, pacing, and tone. It's a story that reads like a book, careful in the narrative climb and intensely detail oriented.

All I can say about this series, is that the characters are very well thought out and do not strictly adhere to any cliche character type, and I love how the different characters interact with each other as the story unfolds. What's more is how Tanabe uses humour to great effect without losing the tension of the overall conflict in the story.
The actual pacing of the storytelling has been very even and always gives enough information to move the plot but always leaves some suspense. Thought there is inevitably going to be a large conflict at some point, the story does a great job of read more
