Honestly I don't even know anymore...... 7/10 *insert facepalm emoji*
Absolutely hilarious and I can't think of a manga I thought was more over the top. It goes from 0-100 instantly. If you're looking for a realistic drama, this isn't it, but god it's enjoyable.
If your looking for character development, move along. The characters were very entertaining to say the least. Super predictable though, they take yandere to the next level. Yuno Gasai would even be jealous at their yandere nature.
The art was surprisingly very appealing to me though.
The story is....well it doesn't really evolve in any respect.
Do you like seeing the same joke repeated over and over again with little to no variation? If so, then you'll like the first part of this manga. It wasn't funny the first time, and repeating it six more times while adding nothing of value certainly didn't make it better.
The second part is a bit better, but it's still just bland characters being gay to each other with a little bit of comedy thrown in. It's mediocre at best.
The only thing of value in this manga is the bonus panels, which are the only funny things about Love/Death. It's not enough to make it worth
reading, but enough to save it from being terrible.
Love Death.. is kinda parted in two different stories. Which got me confused at the begining, because I couldnt say if the other volume is actually continuation of this manga.
Just after reading other reviews and recommendations I realized its one manga.
First part of Love Death tells the story of girls, that love each other so much they could kill one another..
I really enjoyed this idea and from the first page of manga I got so into it, but as I was reading on I got quiet dissapointed.
The repeating scene of fights got me bored. I hoped for something else, that would move the plot
Second part Nikochuu was much better. The plot was slowly moving on. The love between two girls was blooming. I found second part just great.
What I truly hated about this manga is the lenght of it, but the idea of both parts was GREAT..
Still each part could be definitely MUCH LONGER. I would like to read more of it, but every single chapter was so short I couldnt get to enjoy it as much as the idea of whole manga offered.
If you dont mind the lenght of manga and you are looking for a bit of crazy love, you might like this one.
A short episodic manga about two girls in love... taken to the extreme. Given its length, it's not too surprising that there is little story to work off of, and thus, there is barely any character development.
The characters themselves are relatively bland, but are an interesting take on common animanga tropes. Their intense love which leads to comedic misunderstandings and end with fluttering-sweet moments of reconcile are enjoyable to see as an audience. The author cleverly utilizes common shoujo cliches and turns them around, and there is no drama whatsoever, allowing this work to remain lighthearted and easy-to-digest. One thing I really appreciate is that
you can tell this is a pure work of yuri fiction, intended for wlw. The characters are never sexualized and the content remains PG-13. It is also very clear that Love Death. contains no scenes of fanservice which is clearly marketed towards the male gaze.
The female characters are all drawn very charmingly, and each are identifiable with different facial and body structures. Although the artwork is a bit sloppy at times and proportions aren't always perfect, it is very clear from their previous works that the artist is constantly striving to improve. I greatly appreciate their efforts.
Overall, Love Death. is a fantastic choice for a quick and easy read. I wouldn't recommend it for those who enjoy heavy, content-filled works. Those who are sensitive to blood and violence may also wish to avoid this particular work, as it contains minor instances of both. In addition, given that this is clearly a work of yuri fiction, marketed towards wlw, the contents may not be particularly enjoyable for certain audiences.
In short, a summary:
+ Short and easy read
+ Charming artstyle
+ Full of comedic and light-romantic moments
- Little to no character development
- Short length leaves for barely any real story
- Each chapter follows the same structure
