Firstly, I read this with the mindset of not expecting this to be exactly like the anime that it's based off of. You should never do that with any mini manga series that was based off a long anime, unless you want a guarantee you'll be disappointed.

After watching the anime and finding out there was a manga adaptation, I was curious about it. I went in with the mindset to read this manga as it was its own thing. Including the understanding that there will some changes like minor/major plot points being alter and characters from the anime will removed or changed in the manga read more

Preliminary
I picked this up on a whim and...wow what a find! This is a very western fairytale that's both dark with it's story and art. I'd recommend this manga to newcomers who want to get into the hobby of manga.

This is a dark yet very sweet story that's pretty unique, its a better Ancient Magus' Bride without the romance. The relationship between Shiva and Teacher has a very cute father daughter feel to it and I look forward to reading more of this story.

I really love the dark story book sketch art this manga has, it sorta reminds me of that indie read more

The Death Busters arc is my favorite Sailor Moon Story.

When comparing it to the original series, Sailor Moon Crystal is a great improvement as it does the arc a lot better! Uranus and Neptune are back to being awesome characters with their adorable cuddle moments as a couple. Which I'm so happy about since the original 90's anime turned the coolest sailor scouts into condescending emo bitches that treated the inner scouts like children....and Pluto was a bit of a doormat to them.

Sailor Saturn was also made more interesting! The original series mostly talked about what she could do and didn't really show much. read more

This is such a cute little manga to have in your Nightmare Before Christmas collection, or for your manga collection in general.

This manga is basically the movie in comic form, except Sally has a little more focus than she did in the movie. So if you're a fan of her character you might like the manga. The story follows the movie scene for scene, there's even different font for the musical scenes.

The manga's art is obviously different than the movie....which is understandable since it was drawn by a mangaka and not drawn by Tim Burton. So, some characters will look a little off if read more

Blood+ (Anime) add (All reviews)
Blood+ is about a high school girl fighting monsters with her trusty sword....
Sounds generic when you put it like that....but, keep reading my review! Trust me, this anime is a lot more than that!!

Blood+ is actually a really good anime! I highly, HIGHLY recommend it out of the others in the blood series, (Blood the last vampire & Blood-c) because of its richer story and better character development.

The lore with the monsters is fascinating, though I feel the information about them is kinda incomplete... I guess that's fine since the scientists where still experimenting on them and discovering new things.

The characters read more

It seems people keep judging this movie too harshly in comparison to it's manga counter part. I feel like if there was no original source material and this was an original film, fans wouldn't knit pick over everything...and I do mean EVERYTHING....

Yeah there were some plot points from the manga that weren't in the movie, but that was because of the time run. If they tried to fit every scene from all 7 volumes into a movie, there would have been terrible pacing issues or this movie would have been very long.

The movie on it's own is very good. The story follows the same read more

This manga is really good! It's a shame it never got picked up for publishing outside of Japan!

Zero: Kage Miko or in English Fatal Frame: Shadow Priestess is a spin off manga within the Fatal Frame/Project Zero Universe. This is in no shape and form relating to the video games. So don't expect Miku, Mio, Mayu, Rei or any protagonists or ghosts from the video games to appear in this manga.

This manga is really good and I highly recommend any Fatal Frame/Project Zero fan to read this! Especially if you're suffering from withdraw with the lack of Fatal Frame games being localized...It has the read more

Fuuka (Anime) add (All reviews)
Ohhh Boy....

This show is not good at all. The only two good things about the show is that the dubbing, in both English and Japanese, sounds really good and the animation is great.

That's it...

The story is very generic, predictable, and annoying. It surrounds Fuuka, it's all about her! If she wants something, she's going to get it no matter who she inconveniences. She wants to form a band, so she has professionals at her disposal that tell her she's special!

This anime even features 2 of the worst (and overused) anime clichés, that makes the story even more annoying! Which I'm not going to point out read more

This manga is a collection of short stories from the anime. Compared to the anime, this manga is a little more risqué with some of it's scenes. It's not over the top with nudity, it's just a little more than what the anime got away with.

The comedy and the art style is the same as the show, minus the anime aesthetic of the transformation scenes. The dialogue is pretty much similar, Panty and Stocking have their sassy "who f*cking cares" attitude. There are even moments when they break the 4th-wall and talk to the reader.

The stories are okay, none of them really stick read more

I'm so glad I managed to find English scanlations of this online and on the Crimson Obscura amino group, since this book was never released outside of Japan and there's no other way to read this.

This is a manga with a collection of short stories based on the video game Fatal Frame 3: The Tormented with a mixture of comedy/parody and horror comics done by different artists. Since this was done by mulitple people the art style changes with each story. I do love some of the stories, my favorite being the one about the nameless ghost twins that Kei Amakura follows when he's trying read more
