5 22/28 3/4 Basic novels, covering games which used to have an original concept, from the viewpoint of the best character from the games. This won't impress avid readers due to the simplistic descriptions.

20th Century Boys
7 54/249 5/22 There's some The Usual Suspects deception going on. (Hint: Friend is the one playing music, at the start!) Still undecided about a childhood world domination plan that's as intriguing as it is absurd. UPDATE: Dropped 'cause TOO CONVOLUTED TO FINISH.

7 Seeds
5 13/177 3/35 Ruined by the so-so shoujo art. How can I get into a survival type when the surroundings aren't drawn? 99% of the panels are close-ups. It's hard to get a feel for the setting, and with so many characters it's hard to connect with any. Disappointing.

Aa! Megami-sama!
5 36/308 5/48 The anime (TV) cut, edited, and re-arranged the content in a way that improved the experience a lot. It also didn't start with ugly art, unlike the manga. It's far too lengthy for me to bother with.

Accel World
4 9/45 2/8 For the neglected fatties out there. This piggy-lead be lucky: as well a hot childhood friend, he has an alluring eccentric long-hair in love-love with his sweaty arse. Mr. Fat Lose must reach level 10. Dropped for purty anime.

Again!!
6 71/136 6/12 Had potential before its romance-drama turn. Imamura keeps changing personality--as inconsistent as "Danchou" with her femininity. With Hiro pointlessly 'Again-ing', it's become A FAD; NOT A LIFE CHANGING MIRACLE. Not enough memories/regret to hit home.

Ai yori Aoshi
5 46/153 5/17 Famous (in my mind) for being serialised alongside Berserk simply because the artist drew nipples. It could, and probably should, have ended after the first volume. I'll read volumes 1-10 and then decide what to do with the series.

Ai-Ren
4 7/43 1/5 Episodically yawnsome. A human love-doll is acquired to prevent pre-death loneliness. The setting and such hasn't been explained, and I'm struggling to shed a tear over the tragedy of a guy SLOOOWLY DYING w/ his imprinted lover.

Alive: Saishuu Shinkateki Shounen
6 31/83 8/21 The author died.. Most ironic title ever? Parasyte's premise was copied, and then shounen cliches began. Lead goes thru so many it's painful, yet the blend of action, comedy & intense battles make it absorbing. EDIT: Dropped. Eng release cancelled @ 8/21.

4 2/14 -/2 An excuse for a 17-year-old guy to get in erotic situations with his 21-year-old sister, who looks 12. The Japanese sure like 'em young...

Angel Densetsu
6 26/89 5/15 The amateurish art took away from the 'nice guy with an evil face' laughs. Did improve. Kitano's 'girlfriend' even looks cute. Ultimately too repetitive: everyone misreading Kitano & him misunderstanding + screaming. Hard to read lots of at once.
Add - More
Another
4 7/20 1/4 AWFUL PACING. A guy transfers into a class with a secret. No-one will tell him anything. He talks to a girl with an eye-patch no-one can see. Rinse and repeat (c1-7). Not suspenseful, and random J-horror deaths add little. The artist is wasted on this.
Add - More
Ao no Exorcist Publishing
6 37/- 9/- Varied characters & their expressions sells it. Lacks a plot, though. Post-anime, I was expecting excitement, only to get pointless monks. How Rin's 'friends' acted dickish then got over it was odd. V8's Yukio hate-demon development was intriguing.
Add - More
Aphorism
5 17/84 4/14 As a shounen-fighting lead, you get a free hot girlfriend, a power-up enabling victory AND cannot die when your heart gets removed. A run-of-the-mill childish survival manga; only adds Chinese words. Logic fail (keeping 1000's of corpses) also annoying.
Add - More
Archlord
5 17/46 2/6 A clone of pretty much every RPG/medieval fantasy. Nothing special, and probably not worth the time required to finish it. Might give it another go for the art.
Add - More
Arisa
4 16/48 4/12 Twin school switcharoo and a mystery-thriller ensuing intrigued me. But it's an amateurish whodunit type; new characters getting introduced as potential villain red herrings + the baddie having teleport hax, as well as a stealth shield.
Add - More
Übel Blatt
5 7/167 1/23 +vol0. The basic '7 heroes are bad; 4 villains were good' dark fantasy premise is VG. The CARTOONISH horse-fuck characterisation, less so. WEIRDO FAN-SERVICE: random shotaxelf + fingering. Equivalent only to the current shounenish Berserk w/ its revenge.
Add - More
Bakuman.
6 61/176 7/20 DULL & REPETITIVE. The writer's lack of female understanding makes it SEXIST. Miho has all the personality of a doll. The shounen cliches become irritating. An interesting insight into SJ that comes across as scripted, with a so-so cast.

5 17/43 3/6 As fun as it is seeing a humanoid terminator ride a bike along rooftops, taking on regenerating, evil looking baddies, the lack of story is increasingly meh. I get the feeling what I've seen so far is all I'll be getting, and that kind of sucks...

Bleach
6 242/705 27/74 NO-ONE DIES, no matter how much they bleed, and I'm not buying the '...but they're already dead!' argument. Still, it's a good read for shounen fans/idiots... even though it'll only ever get worse the longer it goes on.

Blood Lad
6 30/85 6/17 Wrote-on-the-fly structure. Meant to be about reviving a ghost, tho you wouldn't guess: boxing; a loli-vamp prison; demonic power-levels... Bell's eccentric love-loveness + her expressions ALMOST make up for THE MOST GENERIC-vanilla, doe-eyed heroine.

Boku wa Mari no Naka
5 32/80 3/9 I'm calling it: there's NOTHING SUPERNATURAL at play. The series ran out of plot after the 'You stole my boyfriend!' drama. Ch31 = a RANDOM 'body swapping' hentai (NIPPLE TWEAKING!) masturbation scene. Liked the period cramp/bloody pad seriousness, but...

Chinatsu no Uta
7 30/31 2/3 Chinatsu's smile, and her pure love of all things, almost makes me believe in angels. Kitagawa is a true artist. It's slice-of-life at its absolute best. I just hope it ends happily, and that Chinatsu's "wife" line was foreshadowing. Incomplete @ 3/3?

Chocolat
6 35/73 3/7 Badarse X comic relief yakuza team up to run a cake shop, whilst attempting to appease a bratty teenage 'princess'. Sanctuary this ain't! Chiyoko is the series' lifeblood--either ranting at her new yakuza 'family', or getting lovey-dovey and ranting.

Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch Koushiki Comic Anthology For Boys - Queen
4 35/83 2/5 When buying books with "For Boys" on covers suggesting lesbian activity, I expect boobies. NO BOOBIES! Queen is an average collection of shorts centered around CG's girls, with fluctuating art and funniness. WHY EXTEND C.C'S SKIRT ON V1'S COVER!?

Code:Breaker
- 14/230 2/26 I'm always up for a story with a kill-happy lead. And when the heroine is strong-willed and the art makes her sexy, even more so. My problem? The heroine using BREAST-HUGGLES to prove that KILLING IS WRONG. Going in a very shounish direction...

Cry Eye
2 5/12 1/2 Parents letting their brats go off to a game event on a ship, and the game company allowing them to kill each other?... Just another run-of-the-mill survival manga with a horribly dull cast and no thrills. A shounen female lead does not equal originality.
Add - More
Deadman Wonderland
- 8/58 2/13 A series where a prison is an amusement park attraction & eyes get ripped out has potential. Too bad all it offers is shock value. As vague as can be. Dropped after seeing the anime get worse as it progressed. A shounen series pretending to be a seinen.

Dengeki Daisy
5 19/80 4/16 Like countless other shoujo, it was only intended to last 1-3 chapters. It lacks a sense of purpose. Outside of lovebirds refusing to confess until the end and melodramatic hacking nonsense, no story, either. Saved by its quality comedic art.

Dousei Recipe
6 45/64 6/8 At its best when drama only came from hair removal / period cramp lulz. Began daft-funi: EVERY CONVERSATION being a two-way misunderstanding. Love rivals weighed it down, then arranged marriage forced seperation ruined it. THE TOMBOY FEMDOM LESBIAN!!11!

Dragon Ball
6 325/520 27/42 Better as a comedy; before fighting tournaments & Saiyans took over. Slutty Bulma<3. Half of my brain tells me I should hate DB for being repetitive, simplistic, and lasting far too long. The other half tells me I should love it for being a blast to read.

Elfen Lied
3 71/113 7/12 A VIRGIN RETARD'S EVANGELION. The ever-faithful harem childhood friend getting wet and crying 24/7, ok, but a teen girl wearing a diaper is just... It's a mishmash of harem pain, HORRIBLY PROPORTIONED ALIEN-EYED ART nd simplistic evolution nonsense.

4 5/20 1/4 In Japan, teens talk to themselves about girls SMELLING OF SUNSHINE. 40% internal monologue WHY!? The 1D playboy caricature & kewl kids chill in manga club. AMERICAN TIT'D BLONDE WAIFU has childhood WUV with Wimpy Emo. If not for VG art + 4vols, DROPPED.

EX: Shounen Hyouryuu
4 12/26 2/5 Began with enough deaths to hold my interest. The shoo-in girlfriend being a tomboy was another plus, post-CoE. It became irritating how the leads are flat survival stereotypes. Only 'insanity without laws' yawns, once stranded.

Freezing Publishing
5 104/- 15/- 100+ chapters: Dal Young adds to Kazuya's harem. *STILL* NO 'BAPTISM' SEX! 'Untouchable' Stella letting her bro whip her & human experimentation fooled me. A SHALLOW GIRL-ON-GIRL series, concerned only with catfights & boobs. NO STORY. NGE rip-off comedy.
Add - More
Freezing Zero
4 4/38 -/9 Trying to 'fill in the blanks' of a trashy series, with empty space where its story should go, is kinda dumb. Kazuya's sis is too ditzy and the girls only care about tit-groping. Why does a catfight between new, discardable characters matter, again?...

Fruits Basket
- 12/136 2/23 A shoujo, complete with lots of the usual blushing and ladyboys... who turn into animals. I fear I'm too manly to handle it. One day, I'll read volumes 1-5 and learn the truth about my manliness, once and for all.

Fullmetal Alchemist
7 95/116 23/27 Romantic subplots: not seen through to conclusion/used for comedy. Killing: it's wrong for heroes to kill in a shounen series. Plot: 'The Day of Reckoning' came out of nowhere, without explanation. Positive: non-stop action finale = Brotherhood 8/10.

Genshiken
7 67/127 11/21 Without Saki's 'outsider looking in' view on otakuism, pure masturbation. Genshiken was about its core cast growing together, then graduating. Restarting as a fujoshi series = THE AUTHOR SOLD-OUT! Only the hope Madarame gets with Saki kept me interested.

Gensou Suikoden II: Hiki Sakareshi Shukusei
3 9/- 1/1 Poor art, with the characters faces looking awkward, and no attempt was made at rewriting the story to make it work without the gameplay--lots being cut and the lead switching from silent to goody-goody. THE BEST SUIKO; THE WORST ADAPTATION... typical!

Green Blood
6 17/49 2/5 Initially, I was sold on this gritty Wild West manga with such MAGNIFICENT ART. But, in v2, it already seems to have run its course. And the 'handblade' gunfight reminded me of Equilibrium. The 'crisscrossing lines' stylistic choice doesn't appeal, also.

Happy Project
4 20/33 2/4 Attending a marriage camp - risking social exile if no partner is found - for 1 month? Interesting! Plays out like a psychological battle manga, with unremarkable speed-thru art. The childhood friend waifu --WHY NOT JUST MARRY HER TO BEGIN WITH!?

Hellsing
5 18/92 3/10 Not impressive to look at, and Hellsing's story never was its selling point. I think I'll stick to watching Hellsing Ultimate. (I'll give it another chance first since I own V1-9, though...)

6 30/52 5/8 Randomly started, years after anime. Eng scans only just beyond where I left it!? A+ art depicting STOIC CUTENESS. Pervy lead entertains, but series goes 'HEAD PATTING' HAREM. Supernatural stuff keeps it fun. V6: Emi's bitchiness shows potential.

Highschool of the Dead Publishing
6 30/33 7/7 The huge full-colour omnibuses helped bring the tits/blood to life. TITS + ZOMBIES = a unique survival series that can't reach the dark depths it needs to. T&A but NO SEX / relationships. Got stale after the anime content.

Himizu
6 35/43 3/4 As intriguing as the lead was with his 'dream' of normality, where's the plot? Just a bunch of borderline filler characters involved with nastiness; adding to the overall nihilistic tone. Do I care if the lead kills others, or himself?... No.
Add - More
Holy Knight Publishing
3 9/- 1/- If there's a story beyond a seductive red-head wanting the lead's seed, it's well-hidden. Vampires are involved, and a dog-man NTR'd the lead (raping his childhood friend)... that's it for plot. Miyazaki's faces, nipples & hidden-penis-touch = BESTEST.

Hourou Musuko
5 7/123 1/15 "As usual, my characters are hard to tell apart, my backgrounds are too empty" -- When the author says this, one has to wonder why it's getting LARGE English releases. Won't become compelling until those unhappy with their gender hit puberty/start dating.

I Am a Hero
6 143/264 12/22 Goes from a zombie series where 2chan/recluses take over, with social commentary non-reactions (/passive Japanese)... to a Gantz underwear war. Snail-paced (RANDOM jumps) + SHORT chapters. Only the strong female characters keep me reading.

Ibara no Ou
5 5/37 1/6 The first volume didn't scare me, and none of the characters struck me as being likable or interesting. The story will probably involve lots of nonsensical rubbish--the same as other poorly written horror titles.

Ichigo 100%
6 116/167 13/19 At first, was paced well... then everything went in circles. If not for it being a rom-com, I'd hate the lead for leading on 5+ girls; ignoring the fact his original wuv is always there. EDIT: Dropped after ending spoiler. Eng release cancelled @ 14/19.

Jormungand
7 42/70 7/11 Slowly improves. Initially, too many characters (10!) were introduced. v7's arc, which fleshed out a spy within the group, was great. Koko's eccentricity as she hides behind laughter keeps me reading. (Edit: Dropped after S2 of anime.)

Junk: Record of the Last Hero
2 5/35 1/7 Lord, did I screw up when I paid for v1-4 after being impressed by its 'Dark Guyver' theme! The writing is at a level I'd expect to see in a teenager's work and the amateurish attempts at fleshing out the cast prevents me from caring. Baaaaad.
Add - More
Kagerou Meikyuu
4 8/9 2/2 An otaku pandering murder mystery. Has an erotic work set-up - the lead living with 3 hot sisters (sexing one) & even a hyper girl at school getting in on the act. Took a WTF!? turn with ch8, jumping 1000 years into the past and people using superpowers.

Kamen Teacher
4 24/39 2/4 Basically, it's a GTO rip-off. The problem is, it lacks the heart, characterization, and quality humour of GTO. Another issue is that the violence is so over the top that the schools are more like gang hideouts. Not Fujisawa's best.
Add - More
Kamisama no Iutoori
5 15/21 3/5 Apparently, manga in Shingeki's magazine aren't exactly typical shounen titles. Exploding head unpredictability as teens play death-games against aliens. Goes from WTF-good to plain stupid, once the first lot of craziness gets cubed.

Kanojo ga Tonda Hi
- 2/5 -/1 I'm fond of depressing slice-of-life types, but the first story had unrealistic characters (they were too happy for a suicide story) and the second, though far more realistic and powerful, had a poor ending. Meh.
Add - More
Karakuri Odette
6 11/35 2/6 Starts out funny, with an android going to school as an ordinary girl and the daftness you'd expect ensuing. Quickly becomes shoujish--Odette acting too human, a love triangle forming & initially cool characters losing their charm via repetition.
Add - More
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou
- 7/108 2/21 It starts fast and then loses its way, with 100 side characters and their issues getting time instead of the main relationship. It would've been a 10/10 had it been a far shorter series. I only own the first three volumes.
Add - More
Kimi ni Todoke
5 20/125 5/30 NO-ONE IS GOING TO HAVE SEX... EVER! (/until money stops) A semi-interesting, if generic 'nice loser girlxnice winner boy' start... followed by the usual shoujo relationship plot extension fluff. Easy to tell it wasn't originally meant to last long.
Add - More
Kimi no Knife
6 52/71 6/10 Becoming increasingly stale. There's no goal to work towards: a group of characters are contracted to kill for money. There's drama/trouble over every 'mission'. The characterisation isn't bad yet it's all so... fillerish; without a main plot thread.
Add - More
Kimi wa Pet
6 22/82 4/14 I think it panders to women with the desire to treat a young, flexible ladyman as a pet a bit too much. I do like like the characters; the outwardly strong Sumire in particular. Nothing ever really happens, though...

Koe de Oshigoto!
5 12/60 2/10 A combo of poor art (everyone looking the same) and the cast not speaking lines non-2D people would ("HIGH SCHOOL GIRL?... ERECTION!11!") make it fake. It's funny at first seeing an innocent girl say PUSSY. Then it gets old, and without sound...

Koimoku
5 7/20 1/5 Bakuman with a T&A + harem approach to the manga creation process. A career woman acting like a ditz/housewife hybrid, as well as getting naked to bring out the lead's talent?... +1 for realism. Better than reading UxU's v10 melodrama shitfest?

Kurozuka
5 24/40 5/10 E1-2 of Kurozuka's anime were good. V1-2 of Kurozuka's manga were unpolished good. Everything else? Shit on a stick. The anime made no sense, and after three volumes of double-page (x100) fighting, without plot, I'm ready to facepalm. Kuromitsu, where?

La Mosca
5 41/46 6/7 Before the caffeine > monster island stuff makes sense, uninvolving. In-between the info about coffee powa, there's survival coolness, depicted with typically fantastic Korean art. Sadly, near the end, the #1 1950's mafia boss, Rupert Pupkin, arrives.

Liar Game
6 59/203 6/19 The mind-games were intense, complicated, and great to read. What let the series down was the total lack of 'outside game' content. The main duo were still very stiff as a result, and only the in-depth tictacs kept me coming back for more.

Living Game
6 36/119 3/10 A very cute / lighthearted rom-com about work being mixed with young/old(er) cohabitation. The rom-com shenanigans as an old flame of the lead moves in to create a love triangle/quad do amuse. The art is plain and it soon grows stale. Lost interest.

Mardock Scramble
4 7/33 2/7 Two interlinked aspects make me prefer the anime. #1 is Balot not coming across like an ex-prostitute, desperate for love. #2 is the ok art not matching the anime's futuristic grit. It also lacked the courtroom interrogation scene; opting for more action.

Megane Ouji
5 3/12 1/4 Essentially, it's another one of those shoujo where the male treats the female badly and regardless, gets lucky in the end. The arseholism hasn't been TOO bad, up to yet--it has been a good read. A lot depends on what happens next.

Mel Kano.
5 18/35 2/5 E-dating leads to much lulz irl, so a manga about it by the author of HSG was destined to be fun. What's holding it back is the main relationship drama being dumb due to Towa wanting the two involved to be recurring characters in an episodic series.

4 13/30 2/5 LACKS A HUMAN EDGE; ARTIFICIAL. A guy transfers to a school and instantly a loser with ESP starts killing when told to... because talking on the phone whilst driving is bad. One lead is a pathetic puppet, the other a juvenile psycho. No purpose, or point.

4 8/26 1/4 I'll watch the anime instead since women can't draw backgrounds and the non-cute expressions look... awkward. The story MIGHT be worthwhile, but the sister character is too fake for me to find amusing. (Plus, I can't cum over 14-year-olds, legally...)

5 11/49 -/3 In a parallel 2D universe, 20yo female wannabe mangakas are busty beauts (+virgins), despite never caring about looks. And when a 13yo boy moves in? TIME TO TEASE & FALL IN LOVE! Cute, full-colour and erotic... but most chapters last only a few pages.

4 62/407 5/38 When Takahashi creates stories involving some realism, where there's an end in sight, she's a Goddess. But when she's allowed to ramble about gender changing silliness until the end of time, she's fairly awful. A love/hate author.

5 9/14 2/4 Began promisingly, emphasising the horrors of war. v1 ended with the first major battle & Welkin's tactical masterstroke. Naturally, it turned into a total SKIP-BATTLE CLUSTERFUCK in v2... with a LOVE QUAD. Background art, where? Selvaria hotness +1.

Shi ga Futari wo Wakatsu made
6 48/217 6/26 A modern day take on blind samurai badarsery. 'Future husband' predictions aside, all about sexy art depicting showdowns between assassins & a hi-tech bodyguard wordsman. Little story, and TRIES TOO HARD TO BE KEWL. Lost interest.

Shigeshoushi
5 19/42 3/7 I REALLY wanted to like this (/Mihara) but it's BORING! Guy restores corpses, while sleeping around to keep his hands warm, and there's a girl he likes too much to sex. OK! V3 bored my man-tits off with its painfully straightforward embalming backstory.

Shingeki no Kyojin: Before the Fall
6 13/73 4/17 The 'son of a titan' abuse leading into romance was initially intriguing. And pre-3DMG horses vs. titans world building = cool! SLOW ACTION + MESSY art style hard to follow. The daft 'knife jumping' titan fights make it A LAMER VERSION OF SHINGEKI.

Shinobi Life
7 35/64 7/13 After a pacey start, involving ninjas falling from the sky, it's become clear SL wasn't meant to last. Beni's gone from "Bite me!" to crying for others and the romance stalled. Past ninjaing interesting, tho. EDIT: Dropped. Eng release cancelled @ 7/13.

Sidonia no Kishi
5 10/78 2/15 No Biomega sketchy surrealism. Faces so stiff it's as if they're wearing masks + hard to follow. 'THROW HAREM AT LEAD' = awkwardly mainstream. Upcoming deaths so heavy-handed you know / don't care. Doesn't give off a survival vibe. I like KunTato.

Soukai no Eve
4 4/17 -/3 ONLY SCHOOL GIRLS get on a bus. Mist appears. The driver gets out. Then they're transported to a jungle, with extinct monsters on the prowl. Nothing terribly interesting; cast introduced blandly--archery and kendo girls NATURALLY starting with weapons.

Sprite
4 14/135 1/15 Only the art kept me clicking. Time attacking the world as dark water is all well and good (...wut?) but sluggish pacing + a dull cast make it a hard sell. Gigantic bugs take over in 2060, as the world is hit by an aging disease outbreak?... Ok, w/e.

Stardust★Wink
5 9/54 1/11 People keep squirrels as pets? I'll have to catch one for Princess! The series is decent enough, setting up the childhood love triangle well and there being lots of humour making it an easy read... just nothing 'adult' or remarkable about it.

Sundome
5 21/76 2/8 Sundome has convinced me that sitting next to a school girl/dominatrix whilst she pees is hot. Sadly, in terms of overall quality, it's a never-ending cock-tease, with nothing like a decent story or good characters.

Superior
5 6/28 2/9 A shoujoish offering where the demon queen (and killer of half of mankind) falls in love with a knightly take on Vash. She's lovey-dovey around him and goes with his 'No Kill' policy. Was planned as a one-shot--will no doubt get worse. LQ scans after v2.

Suppli
6 30/57 5/10 Slow-paced, womanly drama. No surprise it has a TV adaptation. Nothing advances most of the time; Fuji going through never-ending romance woe and dealing with work-related / gender stress. EDIT: Dropped. Eng release cancelled @ 5/10.

Suzuka
7 106/171 12/18 Suzuka acts like a bitch when showing affection... and she also acts like a bitch when not. Her skill is jumping high, and she only cares about sports. So, why would Yamato want to date her? EDIT: Dropped. Eng release cancelled @ 15/18.

Tajuu Jinkaku Tantei Psycho
- 6/155 1/24 So, there's a group of serial killers linked together by eye barcodes and a flower terrorist from the 60's, and there's also a special investigation department made up of two people (one being a nutjub)? The hell!?

Tales of Symphonia
5 9/22 2/5 What sells ToS as a story to me is how Colette loses her humanity, bit by bit, as she passes her trials. The way she still smiles during her pain moves me. That aside, Symphonia only offers semi-decent, uninspiring JRPG fun.

Tama Hiyo
5 6/12 1/2 Wouldn't it be lovely if you could buy a chick, treat it nice, and have it evolve into a hot chick happy to lay more eggs for her master? TH is great until you realize it's just another dull harem series... with the lead's love interest laying his harem.

The Breaker
6 62/72 8/10 At one stage, I thought of TB as A KOREAN GTO, and placed it as my #2. The focus shifted almost fully to martial arts nonsense; the realistic school life and intense drama getting replaced with shounen-esque, over the top action. Shame.

The Legend of Maian Publishing
7 75/75 14/14 v1-10: Felicia's seductively sexy personality, aided by art smex, carried the series (LOVED the bickering-wuv). Then, everyone died, the lead got NTR'd & he became a slappy berserker. V11-12's seinen darkness quickly went 'JRPG-time'. Edit: CANCELLED!?

Tiger & Bunny
5 4/38 1/9 So far, an ep-to-ep anime adaptation, with minor cuts (Tiger not being shown receiving a dressing-down). Katsura's art & the cool-fun carry over but it just ain't the same without those varied, vibrant colours giving life to the costumes.

Tokyo Ghoul
6 79/144 8/14 Turns into a battle manga. So much for the UNIQUE ghoul culture coffee shop blend! Former enemies become TEAM NAKAMA & Touka becomes Useless Female. Kaneki's jump from passive-weak to sadistic-strong was SO rushed he may as well be a different character.

Tokyo Girls Destruction
4 9/15 1/3 As daft as they come. All-girl 2D hotness DOES NOT make it ok. Not Battle Vixens--more like Deadman Wonderland with a shoujoish heroine and girls smashing walls. Is big sis dead? DON'T CARE! Those classy all-girl schools; animalistic at night, they are!

Toshiue no Hito
6 18/44 3/6 I was into it until the story stopped flowing like it did early on; my interest faded. The wonderful art and erotic sex scenes, which were only let down by an adult loli being involved, almost make me want to give it another chance...

Triage X Publishing
2 5/- 1/- HORRIBLY JUVENILE! Aimed strictly at those whose idea of kool is a high school kid, teamed with a hospital ASSASSIN UNIT OF TIT-NURSES, telling evil men he's there to "operate" on them. Requires more suspension of belief than a zombie apocalypse, BY FAR.

Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE
3 5/233 1/28 It struck me as being a rather messy CLAMP fan service title. It requires some serious arrogance for a group of women to release an all-star title just because of them being a little popular. Square/Disney CLAMP ain't!

Unbalance x2
7 72/82 9/10 By far the BEST STUDENT x TEACHER romance I've read. My next 10/10? EDIT: Read most of the v10 RAWs. A horribly rushed conclusion where awful melodrama comes out of nowhere and the lead turns into a pussy. RUINED!

Usagi Drop
- 18/62 3/10 Bunny Drop is very much a tale of parenthood from a male perspective. (UPDATE: Dropped 'cause timeskip > old/young wuv later. NO!) The awkward devotedness of Daikichi and cute maturity of Rin work together well. Wher MILF romance?

Velvet Kiss
5 31/32 3/4 A rich-girl that has orgies + a dickish sex-with-two salaryman = poor romance. Erotic yet sticks to Koi's non-genital routine. Unsympathetic leads & an orgy-manipulation 'story' detract from hot art. Plot moved beyond repetitive sex looping with 28&29.

Witch Craft Works Publishing
6 16/- 4/- A giantess with HUGE boobies, protecting an average guy by carrying him like a princess. Tall girl fetish FTW! Nonsensical 'magic + school' story, saved by STOIC-FEMDOM full-page lulz + obsessive jealous lil' sister. Created without planning.

Wolf Guy: Ookami no Monshou
6 68/117 7/12 Lip-licking art, plus unapologetic violence and nudity, equals Wolf Guy. The problem is, what little plot there is goes nowhere, ultimately resulting in violence for the sake of violence, and lots of rape. (ch70+, THE SERIES TURNS INTO RAPE PORN!)

Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii Publishing
6 13/- 2/- Glol Narumi reaction faces aside, this just ain't the semi-realistic adult rom-com I expected: all four 'otakus' just happen to be hawt, and the lead hooks up w/ his childhood<3 despite being stoic-autistic.. OKAY THEN! Genshiken was far more convincing.

XO Sisters
6 13/17 3/3 Koreans = HAWT ART! Generic Bleach rip-off plot with humour that saves it: tough guy lead being sent to an all-girl school... as a gay. His bickering love with Young-Hee = YES! +1 for 4x heroines NOT being T&A fluff. -- EDIT: Discontinued = NOOOOO!!1

Yankee-kun to Megane-chan
5 13/219 2/23 YtM falls somewhere between stupid and entertaining. It makes a change from the usual opposites attract stories; it involving a delinquent girl (posing as a glasses wearing class rep) getting into a comical relationship with a delinquent guy.

Yuria 100 Shiki
5 32/105 4/12 Whilst it's true that the pop-up boxes that described the functions of Yuria amused me, the series is best described as light porn and no more. It was ok until seeing the same 'ALMOST PENETRATED!' stories over and over bored me, eventually.

Zetman
6 80/226 7/20 Katsura is GOD at drawing girls in panties. When he strays away from that, he only offers convoluted explanations as he copies from other 'dark hero' works. Without "Auntie" bath-time and rape orgies, idc. Needs more romance/sex.
