As this manga is now officially complete and i assume people want to read this because it's finished so the best opportunity to read this series.

Does it reach the heights as the legendary sports manga/anime like Hajime no Ippo, Major, Slam Dunk, Ashita no Joe.... well nope this is a serviceable sports manga however its a fun read.


This is honestly the biggest highlight for me, it damn impressive framing and considering this is drawn in a weekly schedule idk how the author does this amount of detail this ridiculously fast. Thats not really it though, good art is easy to appreciate like read more

I think this little series that doesn't go on too long to outstay its welcome, due to the simplistic nature of ending ( not a bad thing).

Is this series a gem like Gakuen Babysitters while no, in terms of the cute factor. But is it as well comedy and a slice of life nearly as well as the Yotsuba well nope. Yotsuba is the highest standard when it comes to that type of series, however, is this a fun excellent manga yes it is.

If you're reading this series for the plot, well i suggest u don't bother as they are hardly any read more

Barbara (Manga) add (All reviews)
First off the score is not 8 but its 7.5

This manga was released in a weird phase of the mangaka life during 1973 to 1974 it was Tezuka Osamu transition period between shounen to seinen work ( more children to mature). Before the manga starts their is a brief history about the man's life and the situation he was in. The protagonist of this story, is intentional or unintentional similar to the author having a huge slump problem.

The Protagonist is not likable, he's an alcoholic, abuser and has sorta mental illness the manga never really clarifies. This manga is the closest thing read more

Modest Heroes is 3 shorts film by the newly formed studio Ponoc, former Ghibli employees. These 3 shorts films give us a much better indication of how Ponoc films are going to be different from Ghibli. I first have to say some sad news if your wondering ( probably not) why is this film so short like it doesn't even reach an hour all together well sadly this was supposed to have a 4 short film directed from the legendary late Isao Takahata for a personal reason or to give these new directors more exposure. Also got to give credit to Yoshiaki Nishimura read more

This is surprisingly a really well-executed manga, this doesn't have the deepest of plots, nor characterization but it a real historical slice of life.

The Slice of Life of this manga reminds of two manga's first on everybody mind A Bride's Story especially with the plot Historical stories about arranged marriages with unusual settings so this is Tibet also both costumes are accurate for the time period and culture. This also similar to Golden Kamuy slice of life elements being a joy to read. This also reminds me of Altair on how it does the costume designs and attention to detail.

The Art is read more

I don't think this needs to be stated but this is Studio Ponoc first feature film, The studio is formed by former Ghibli members and is basically going to the new spiritual successor to the great legacy as i assume ( speculation) after Hayao Miyazaki last film in I think 2020 or 2021 that's it for Ghibli. Like every anime adaptation of a novel its best to think this as its own thing not as a replacement for The Little Broomstick by the Scottish Mary Stewart. This film is because an introduction to determine if this studio in the right direction they took read more

Thank You Australia for releasing this film to the cinema, I thankfully watched this at the cinema while not having many people annoying me it was quiet and people were respectable.

BTW this film is 8.5/10 so the overall score would be 8 in MAL but 8.5 my real score.


This doesn't really have a traditional structure, this can either be a pro and con because one we really don't know what happening and interesting to see. However, the downside is the pacing u wonder what the point at intervals. They isn't really a proper plot like a 3 act structure if they are it's read more

This is a best a 4.5/10 manga, however, they are merits to this manga that i will state. This manga basically has 3 different stories in different timelines whats recommended the first volume. Because they basically 3 different stories its harder to review this series as a whole.

Volume 1 - is the direct aftermath of Miki death in devil man, this is the most probable scenario in this series. Akira being so broken that his mental state is destroyed and Amon takes over. I was wondering whats up with the mixed feeling about this series online but reading this makes alot of sense. read more

Despite the score seen this manga is a 6.5/10 it definitely not a 6 however not as high as a 7. However before viewing this manga Devilman and Shin Devilman, as everything set up in those manga basically gets development, this manga is great for lore enthusiast of Go Nagai.

This contains the similar anti-war message that devilman has stated however like many reviews and blog have stated. However this is a different perspective, about mankind, heroism, corruption of man this is clearly showcased in really at the beginning of the series where it was most episodic which different character showcasing a different point of read more

During This adventure Sugimoto partners up with Ainu girl who saved his life and both have different motivation yet the same conclusion so they team up.

From this description, you think they nothing that special about this series in hindsight you're correct however what this manga does to distinguish from what could a simplistic manga is amazing. The attention to detail for this time era 1903-1904 is kinda outstanding this feels a read more
