(Manga) add (All reviews)
It's a rare occurrence that a manga can make you laugh, smile and cry in less than one chapter. I rarely indulge in one-shots, though when I do I am often entranced at how a story can be so clear and yet so vague.

Forever Honey is no exception.

Story [10/10]
Though I can't give the story any points for originality, I've always felt that originality is only as good as its delivery; this applies perfectly to Forever Honey. Forever Honey borrows a story has been used many times before however it is delivered in a way that touches the heart in more ways that one, invoking emotions read more

Elfen Lied is the ultimate man's manga; including all fundamental aspects one has come to expect from a male oriented manga with no exception of blood, nudity, sexual references and imagery, brutal violence, science fiction and even cat girls. As a girl, I won't complain, having a natural affinity to the more male oriented themes, however this is no manga for the faint of heart; the story often making you cringe as you witness limbs fly in every direction. Strangely enough, the brutality is probably one of the manga's most redeeming qualities, the way death and pain is delivered is intriguing at the least which read more

Ever since I was little I was a hardcore fight fan, I loved watching shows where the antagonists had to battle for the survival of all they held dear, even now I hold fondly the anime that had given me my first taste as it aired on my morning cartoon network "Cheese TV." It was a boring morning when I stumbled upon the Dragonball manga and I soon found that morning cheering up as I delightfully relived the story of Goku and his Dragonball adventures.

Story [10/10]
If a manga like Dragonball were to only appear now, I would have probably given it an 8 or 9, read more

I don't think I'm being original when saying Death Note is one of the few original stories to have ever come out of Japan. However, that I would say this, along with the rest of the world, only goes to prove that the world agrees with this opinion; declaring Death Note to be both brilliant and original. Though what is most curious is Death Note's strong theme of justice that has been portrayed in a way that will make you question yourself and your own sense of justice as your head and heart are torn between the ideals of the severe Kira and the read more

I originally stumbled accross this manga after watching Blood+, still hungry for more after watching something so splendid.

But I soon found it was nothing like Blood+

Sure, it had vampires, and seemed to me more a hybrid of Blood: The Last Vampire (the movie) and Blood+ (the anime) than anything else but it had in itself it's own points of interest.

Story [8/10]
As I just said a moment ago, the story seemed more a hybrid of the anime movie Blood: The Last Vampire and the anime series Blood+, so I cannot say for certain how the story would have had an impression on me had I read read more

When I stumbled across this manga I expected it to be another wild ride filled with violence and people getting their head blown off, my ultimate genre, but a few chapters in a quickly realised the the tale of Train Heartnet was much deeper than I had originally anticipated.

Story [8/10]
When the setting and basic backstory had been established, I was already enthralled; the story of an ex-assassin who turned his back on his dark past to face a brighter future was a pleasant thought and would make for an interesting manga. However, though I enjoyed the basic backstory, when the story found itself at the read more

Beauty; an apt name for such a strange shoujo tale.
Beauty is not a manga tale to fantasize about, but rather one to have fun with and smile at some of the more innapropriate moment. To enjoy this manga I'd say you just have to take it for what it is, a girl throwing up on boys.
Now, I won't say that I'm truly familiar with the manga as it's been just under two years since I read this manga (sometime in January of 2008), but I do remember it fondly as I was the one that first added Beauty to MyAnimeList and I was rather surprised read more

Preliminary
The holidays had just begun when I chose to crack open this anime, the summary sounding cute enough and the reviews close to overflowing with greatness and I was looking into the fall anime which I had neglected.

But little did I expect to be sorely disappointed.

Story:
This anime isn't terrible persay, though I would say that it has been greatly overestimated. The story is unrelatable and unrealistic and I don't mean this in the "GIANT MECHA AND SPARKLY COLOURS" way, but in the "There is no way this could be seen as a real life situation, it's just so silly" way.
Now, a quick overview of the read more

This Manga is a beautiful Manga with a truly unique storyline. The lead female character, Aikawa, has an extrordinarily designed personality and history, and the lead male character, Suwa, is so very sweet. This manga makes you feel a sympathy towards the main characters, particularly Aikawa.

I love this romance, of how Aikawa's story transform's the girl chasing Suwa into someone in love without her even noticing, and how Suwa changes Aikawa's view on men and love. over all i have fallen in love with this manga as it was the first ever shojo manga i heve ever read(i was not a huge fan of shojo read more
