$1 000 000 question (first person to get it right gets a cookie): of all martial arts manga in publication during the time of 2001 to 2010, why was History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi the only one to get an animated adaptation?

The answer is mind blowing in its simplicity and infuriating in its implications: because its fight scenes were (and still are, to this very day) complete shit!

The uncomfortable truth is that no good martial arts manga in this day and age will ever get animated because animating even a decent (not a GOOD) fight sequence takes stupid amounts of work hours and money. Nowadays, ...

It's been a long time since a Martial Arts/Action manga caught my eyes as I prefer stuffs like this to be animated. After reading a few chapter, I can't believe how much spell it can bring if it was relished with ecchi, featuring an Ass-kicking Bishoujo.

Change 123 is about a girl who developed multiple personalities to cope up with the martial arts training given by her three adoptive fathers. This plot was nothing new, but the character development was very good. Just looking in there pictures will give you an idea how they differ from each other(Yeah, We know they are all sexy and is ...

This is an unexpected good find on my part. I honestly wasn't looking for much when I started reading this manga, but when I got far enough into the story (I think the second major story arc?) the story started to pick up and the characters became fuller. And the art is just plain outstanding. The action scenes are very beautifully drawn, I personally got a great sense of the movement during the fight scenes.
Also, I have to admit, the ecchi is great.
Overall, I am thoroughly enjoying this series. It has a lot to offer and brings out more and more story and plot elements ...

This is one of those case where you cant judge a book by its cover or a managa by its description on mangafox, onemanga etc

I cant tell you the number of times ,I passed it over cause it sounded too cheesy or stupid .I am now happy to say just how wrong that has proven to be.

This is honestly one gem of a managa , a true ...

This manga is amazing! Not only is the concept for it (a girl with mental personalities? im really into stuff like that~) amazing but its also a really great fighting manga which i really dont read! It had an excellent balance of cute romance with fighting always being awesome and the main characters constant cuteness! I truly loved this manga~

Motoko has a hard time living her life as the other personalities try to live there will protecting her from harm. She soon meets a befriends Teruharu "Hideo" Kosukegawa how is a bit of a perv but very kind and soon helps her with her multiple personalities.

I really love this manga!! I enjoy watching the characters develop and interact with each other. Now, there is a fair bit of fan service and the main guy can be a bit of a perv at times, but other than that, I love everything else about it!! I really like how the main girl has the different personalities and that each one is SO unique and has their own fighting style!! I also like that the girl is the strongest one amd has to protect the main guy!! All in all, I find this a very great and enjoyable manga and will be ...

This is going to be a really short review and i apologize for that.

Story (7): The story was interesting, it was original in its ways but nothing to make you jump of your seats.
Regular... Interesting as a manga, but nothing else...

Art (6): The Art is not bad, the characters are well done, but as a monthly manga... it seems really pathetic (the backgrounds or characters dont have a really good quality...)
Full Metal Alchemist, Claymore, And lots of other monthly mangas have a WAY better Art...
(I dont want to make it extensive but if you read monthly mangas you would see that even the ones that ...

How the hell is this not an anime? This is one of the best mangas i've read in a while. The characters are entertaining and likable, the story is funny and exciting, and the artwork is great. When i first stumbled across gem, I read the first 17 chapters and wanted to read more, but work got in the way. Seriously, if you like girls who kick ass and ecchi, read this manga.

Simply put "Change 123" is probably one of the best romance/martial arts manga ever written. I can't believe that I passed over this story for so many years and I can truthfully say that at no time during it's 60 chapters did I ever get bored with the story. The strongest part of this manga is probably the overarching plot about the reconstitution of Motoko's personalities into a single person and it's a theme that does a really nice job of making the pacing for the story and the relationship between the two (or is it 5?) leads move along at a satisfactory pace.

In addition ...

Change 123 is the story about a girl who was trained vigorously, by birth, by her 3 fathers after her mother had died. Due to this she gains 3 distinct personalities. The sexy badass shooter, the alternate highschool personality that excels in martial arts, and her childlike personality which has mastered judo. Alongside this highschool girl (3+?) comes our main characters. A crybaby who really likes Kamen rider superhero. He figures out her secret of having 3 different personalities and they began a special relationship.

This manga honestly at the start was kinda awesome. The main heroine especially was just fucking awesome. I especially liked ...

So, Change 123 was a good manga, and I enjoyed it. But I can't say it's a great manga. A lot of people seem to like the ending, but it just ruined the whole thing for me. I am going to spoil a major part of the ending, so if you are afraid of spoilers, stop reading here. I've tried to make it incredibly obvious it's coming up; it has 4 lines of warning in all caps; it's in the story section. By categories:

Art - 6/10: Don't take my 6 as a bad rating. In fact, in terms of quality, it's rather good. That being ...
