Preliminary
this series is not completed yet and i write this review as i have finished reading chapter 127.

About the story: The setup is fairly sweet but things start to rapidly develop and i promise its thrilling! I have until now rarely seen this level of analyzing, strategies, deducting, attention to details and psychology. There are also later on survival elements, the setting will shift to a dystopian world and society and its structures i assume at this point will come more into focus. It is gripping, thrilling and challenging. This story so far has all the things i appreciate in a well written read more

7 Seeds (Manga) add (All reviews)
Are you tired of all the old boy meets girl romance stories? The neverending fight-another-villain of shonen? Sick of stories that seem to have only one main focus?

Then read 7 Seeds!

Story 10/10 : The setting is unusal for shoujo/josei comics and its a shame there are only so few. The main focus is survival, life and death, adventure,mystery, but also social interactions, relationships on different levels,wirking together, overcoming ones weaknesses, discovering what happened, self -reflection and growth. 7 Seeds is so layered and treats each topic with an earnest approach, the research on scientific topics is well done. The story keeps the reader read more

Mars (Manga) add (All reviews)
There are already a ton of revies about this, so ill keep this as short as possible. I was wandering around Mars since its been published in my country, however i avoided reading it when i was a teenager as at the time it wasnt my main interest. I had heard good and bad things about it, but i never really bothered.
Now roughly 15 years later, i am looking for good josei and come across this one again and i decide to give it a go.

Honestly, i didnt expect too much. I was pleasantly surprised however, (and ended up bingeing the whole read more

First off, this manga is from the 80s. so there is a difference in behaviour and societal norms depicted then in comparison to now.

The story starts our fairly common, boy meets girl, something happens, they fall in love maybe, etc.... BUT! Its what is around the primary objective of just romance that makes this story different. The family situations, the past of the characters as well as their own thoughts/reflections. The way the story is told also makes the characters relatable to the reader.

The pacing is relatively slow, sometimes things are omitted and some things may be seen differently today as they were read more

Chicago (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
As a fan of Tamura Yumi, i checked it out in hopes of another epic story like 7Seeds or Basara.

As this work seems to be unfinished or abandoned, i write this for the potential it had.

Story: the setting is a slightly fururistic tokyo, and our main heroes belong to a special forces team to help save civillians and take on special missions. Its quite an unusual setting for josei, but all the better for it, i think the category needs so much more diverse content than just romance . The story stars with action and is really promising, it would have been great so read more

Always on the look for good Josei, i stumbled on this one.

Story: The setting is a typical one for the romance genre, a student in love with the teacher. This time, its the school nurse and a student from an all boys school. Even though the setting is cliche, and the kind of relationship this is going to portray is risqé, one might still want to give it a chance. The story itself though is very predictable as it goes in the romance genre. Its literally as predictable as they come. No surprises there. At all.

Art: This is what caught my attention at first. read more
