Have you ever played the game Suikoden 5 and found yourself wondering what the members of the 108 stars are really like? If the answer is yes then this manga will most likely entertain you.
Story: This manga is based on the game Suikoden 5 and as such it is set on the Queendom (that's right Queendom) of Falena, however the events that are shown here did not occur or was not fully shown in the game. These are simply filler arcs that explore a different side (mostly the humorous side) of several members of the 108 stars of destiny including the prince himself who is
depicted as a less... how do I say this... . Regal... or heroic... but more carefree
Characters: If you haven't played the game then you probably won't be able to appreciate the characters, although if you have played (AND ENJOYED) the game then you will probably find yourself smiling more often than you would have imagined. As mentioned earlier some of the characters in this manga are shown with different personalities which might confuse you, however it will entertain you and that's the point of reading mangas
Art: The art is very simple, fun and cute however there are times when the artwork excels particularly the cover pages, but other than that it's nothing special
Overall: This manga is aimed specifically to those who have played the game and are familiar with the story and characters so I can't really say that this may suit your taste but for a person like me who has played and enjoyed the game (I spent more than 200 hours playing this game) then this title is a worthwhile read... however judging from the not so awe inspiring sales of the game chances are not many MAL users has played this game and thus not many will be interested in this or my review... "sigh"... T_T
