Preliminary
Story:
The story is pretty decent. It's basically just about Paulina helping the emperor deal with stuff as his loyal knight. The storyline isn't anything special and there isn't anything too memorable, but it's a pretty enjoyable read.

The outstanding part is the way the author portrays sexism. We follow Paulina through her way to prove everyone that she, a woman, can do things just as well as any other male knight. No "female character casts the men that made fun or her a look and the men are overwhelmed by her presence" bullshit. Paulina has to deal with sexism over and over again, and though she read more

While rating this I've pulled out my shounen wow-those-fights-are-so-cool heart in order to review this as fair as possible for the mangaka. Still couldn't give this a high mark.

Story:
The story and worldbuilding are so incredibly weak. The mangaka pushes you straight into action and from that point on you're in a rollercoaster that's only going hard downwards with no rest, meaning that there's no time to rest and therefore no time to enjoy the hype (no light without darkness yknow).

Towards the end, the story underwent an acceleration. The story that didn't even have anything to offer, underwent a goddamn acceleration. I couldn't even believe read more

Ennead (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Story:
Ennead is an adaptation of Egyptian myths about the competition between Seth and Horus for the throne of Egypt. The author's take on the story is original enough, but also doesn't stray too far from the historical sources. I really love how the author rewrites it. (For those who don't know, there's a myth in which Horus impregnated Seth)

The story starts as a competition for power, but as the story unfolds, you'll find that there's more behind the characters' motives than it seems. The fights are epic and the mystery is gripping.

The only thing that annoys me is the complexity of the dialogues in read more

We've heard of saintesses, who managed to defeat the villainess with her honesty.
We've heard of villainesses who were wronged and managed to get revenge.
Now get ready for: a saintess and a villainess understanding and supporting each other. We love seeing women support each other uwu.

Story:
The story begins from the pov of Medeia, the villainess, so it seemed to be another villainess who wants revenge story. But after she switched bodies with Psyche, the saintess, they'll both discover the difficulties of the other and why the other did what they did. Slowly they'll start to repair their broken friendship and help each other overcome read more

Preliminary
Story:
I just can't put my finger on what the author wants. This whole story is just so frustrating that I'm wondering whether it'll be the start of a theme for masochists exclusively. In the pro-prologue you see the protagonist striving but then you get like around 90 ch of her suffering??? The author can't write anything else besides that for 90 chapters. And it's not even a dark psychological story! It's bright, bright but depressing. It doesn't make sense. (edit: I can't possibly consider this angst since there's nothing to choose between. There's only aimless suffering).

And the reasons for the protagonist's suffering are so weak read more

9/10 because, although it's nothing special, it lives up to its marketing. I personally hate cute chibi stuff, but I guess there's nothing else to do when you're obsessed with MDZS.

I really like the length of the episodes. It's quick, light and heartwarming. The sentence "This series hopes to heal the audience who loves the main story of Mo Dao Zu Shi, but were “injured” by the melancholy plot of the drama." is true. It heals with cuteness and gayness.

This chibi series is really like f*ck the censorship. I'm not even going to say anything else, just... is nobody going to mention the advertisement read more

This really surprised me as to how good it is. So the bar had been set by MDZS and TGCF (Heaven's official) is also about to air, and this shit just decided to pop up too with 3D animation... I was so mad.
But I couldn't stop myself from watching it when I came across it on yt, and I ended up binging it all in one go.

Story:
An isekai-villians-side cliché, but a good one. The humour was what really got to me. What can I say, this is PURE COMEDY. It's hilarious. You might already be familiar with Shen Qingqiu's behaviour because of the novel, but read more

Let Dai (Manga) add (All reviews)
Story:
This is a story about subjectiveness, about the different views of different people.

The toxicity is what makes this story great due to it being realistic. And while romanticized toxicity will make you frown in disgust, realistic toxicity will ironically deliver goosebumps because you can't help but find it beautiful through the eyes of the characters.

This manga is also a great study of humanity and society. How do we behave towards something unknown, something shunned by your surrounding which has been brainwashed? Love, friendship, family, homosexuality, misunderstandings, illness, rape, suicide.
So many sides of society are shown, so many kinds of people are introduced.
How should read more

Story 10:
A combination of sweet romance and dark reality.
Most of Dark Heaven is told through flashbacks, so it has the "at that time we never knew we'd become like this" feel to it. You follow the life of two boys who go from friends to lovers, and have supported each other untill one incident destroyed it all.
This story doesn't shy away from racism and homophobia, and actually targets it in the right and realistic way. It shows us the reality that is often ignored in mangas/-hwas/-huas that take place in the west. You see how racism destroys people of all ages, which is why baffoons read more

Story 10:
Story to be divided into 2 parts: the real life & the stories.
Real life: twist on the 1001 Nights classic. You have the crazy sultan, but Sahaar is a boy instead of a girl who took his sisters place to be sent into the harem. Sahaar calms the sultan with his stories. Besides their relationship, there's also the history of the Sultan that made him the crazy ruler he is now, which is also really interesting.

The stories: the irony is that this manga is a twist within a twist.
really good and interesting, and I believe some, of not all, are real read more
