Fine, let's go. I have no clue how I even got to find this manga but I am surely not disappointed about finding out about this. I never was too big of a soccer fan, or atleast a fan of the famous clubs. Nevertheless I obviously know FC Barcelona and it's players and their stories.
Story 1/10: I have to clarify that this story is NOT a necessarily bad story, but it feels way more like some sort of documentary than an actural story, because it has no real plot and just retells some aspect of FC Barcelona. The biggest focus is put on Lionel
Messi, fair enough. He is one of the most famous modern soccer players and for good reason, but this manga shouldn't focus this much on one single player if it's name literally is FC Barcelona Story and not Messi Monogatari. Being real this isn't more than just some of Barcas highlights compiled in a japanese comic, so what is there to expect.
Art 3/10: The art itself isn't too bad, but it often times seems so funny, because the people just randomly squint, but honestly there shouldn't be more to expect from this considering this probably didn't even have any kind of budget. You can certainly read this without being annoyed or distracted by bad drawings.
Character 1/10: This is the section I'd like to give a 0 if I was able to. There simply just isn't any type of story that makes character development or any character interaction at all possible.
Enjoyment 4/10: Regardless of whether this manga is any good, I cannot deny that I surely had some sort of fun or atleast interest in seeing what the deal with this FC Barcelona manga would be. The concept and idea just seems really funny and absurd to me.
Overall 2/10: At the end of the day this manga is simply an ode to one of the most famous Spanish Football Soccer Teams, FC Barcelona, and should probably not be treated as way more. If you are a fan of FC Barcelona just go on and read this, but if u aren't... honestly what are you even doing on this page then haha.
