I've only read 4 chapters so this review may be changed later... Who am I kidding, I've been using this site nearly a year and this is my first review. It's not gonna change -_-
I'll start out on a positive note by saying that I was pleasantly surprised with how well these first few chapters turned out. As 95% of you know, this was based off a video game. I own one of them and, although I suck at it -_-, I still recognised some of the equipment and most of the monsters in the manga, which I was impressed by. There is actually a
good mix of action and humor while it still follows the game.
As that other reviewer (I'm too lazy to go back and find your name) was saying, you can't really expect much of a story from a manga based off a game with no story. Basicly a simple-minded guy that doesn't think a bunch meets a girl that is much more independent, but secretly has a deep respect for him, and they travel across the world meeting other people along the way that decide to tag along for their own reasons. I really can't say it's an original plot at all. It does look like there will be a few twists. You probably won't read it for the story.
The characters look the same as all of his other stuff... which all look the same as One Piece. If you like One Piece art, then you'll like this art, nuff said. Every once and a while there will also be a detailed drawing, probably of a monster, but overall the art isn't as consistant as I would like.
... But I still think it's pretty good.
I'm gonna start by saying that the hero in the story, Shiki, is a complete copy of Natsu, from his other manga Fairy Tail. Natsu is a complete copy of Luffy from One Piece. Nothing else is really worth mentioning. I think all of the characters are good, but theres no way they're getting on my favorites list.
lol just kidding xD
Overall anyone who enjoys any of the shows in the "User Reccomendations" should like this (surprise surprise -_-). If you like the games and don't hate One-Piece-like stuff then you should check it out.
God that took a long time... it will be a loooooooooong time before I write another review o_O
