I'm no expert, but many of the Shoujo Mangas I've read are completely based off of Romance (with some great exceptions) as characters fall quickly for each other. Fortunely Penguin Revolution is not one of those, and is not even very focused upon the romance of the series, instead focusing on the careers of the main characters and the business of entrainment. With this we get to see the romance develop on the side, no "oh he looks good, I think I'm in love!" is here, though the characters are all good looking, the romance is more than that. Unfortunately all you're going to get read more

Bitter Virgin is a surprisingly mature, beautiful and dark story with a strange and misleading title. When I first saw the title of Bitter Virgin, I figured it was yet another mediocre Ecchi/Comedy that would feature some girl with overly sized breast to the point their unattractive embracing random men as their heads go into the breast. Classic joke isn't it? Of course thinking that, I decided to ignore the series, and wasn't even looking for a new series at the time, focusing on the things I was already reading. I heard it's name thrown around a couple of times afterwards, and finally looked at read more

Fukan Fuukei is the first and fairly stand alone attempt at an adaption of The Garden of Sinners novel. First I would like to say that I have no past experience with any product of The Garden of Sinner series, and this review is based off of this movie with no knowledge to anything else. First off to people who don't like such things, this is a strange and abstract way of storytelling, and apparently the rest of the series follows a similar style. You will spend time not knowing anything about what is going on in the story, besides the plot points that are read more

Surprised that no one has reviewed this, while it may not be at the same level of 20th Century Boys, it's only two volumes, it's the ending, and it's a great read despite it's short length. If anything I am a little disappointed that it didn't show us a bit more of an "aftermath" to things, I was particularly begging for Friend to have a good reason for what he was doing, but it never came. 21st Century Boy simply wraps up the story of 20th Century Boys story, starting off with the concert that we saw near the end of 20th Century Boys, and read more

Being a fan of T. Rex, I was immediately interested in a book that referenced him in the title. I was even more interested to find out it was by Naoki Urasawa, the genius behind Monster. I started reading it right away, and hardly put it done till I was finished with it, and also finished the sequel right after that. Well there's two things I want to say in the opening paragraph, first is that even though this is an amazing Manga series, I can't help but feel it isn't quite at that level of Monster, and that being said, neither is it the read more

Made by the famous Rumiko Takahashi, the length draws out over 558 chapters, and this length both causes some of it's greatest and worst moments. For instance the romance of the story (or more specifically the love triangle) reaches it's climax as we draw towards the end with a bittersweet, but none the less great conclusion to it. However we go on to, in my opinion, another disappointing ending from Takahashi. I haven't read all of Ranma 1/2, but I hear that the ending was not the best, and InuYasha certainly felt rushed at the end. That is always a bad thing, but it's quite read more
