Mixed Feelings
Well, damn, I just finished reading the manga and while the ending was great, was a little underwhelmed by the beginning compared to the reviews I had read.

Turns out I had glimpsed the reviews for the anime, and not the manga!

The beginning is real confusing, scenes honestly make no sense and the conversations would be a bit jarring. Plus the obvious boob and crotch shots and then random yuri sex scene out of nowhere got me laughing out "what the f-"

I guess it was meant to be more of a romantic moment, when later on you hear more about one of the ...

Naruto (Anime) add
I watched Naruto during the time I was fourteen and dropped it when I was sixteen shortly after watching Shippuuden. Roughly. I can't remember for sure, seeing as this was nearly a decade ago. It was one of the first animes I ever watched and it was easily one of the longest; I had picked it up as a show to watch as it was the most popular one out there during the time.

Naruto was the anime that made me realise that just because something is popular, it doesn't necessarily mean that you'll like it.

Story: 6/10:

I really enjoyed the premise of the ...

I remember on a forum thread somewhere, someone posted about how they wanted to see a anime based around someone being born with pink hair and tries to go through life day after day, narrowly avoiding being the main character in whatever anime cliche is thrown at them (ignore the person falling from the sky! ignore the popular girl/boy talking to you! im never late for school, my alarm always goes off in time!), and Saiki is as close to that anime dream as we will ever get.

Saiki is born with ridiculously powerful psychic abilities, to the point that he has to restrain them ...

Preliminary (15/60 chp)
I would sum up "Kiss Him, Not Me!" as silly yet fun shoujo that doesn't take itself too seriously. If you're in the mood for something that you don't have to think about too much, (which is what I sometimes need!), this ones a pretty safe bet to give you a smile.

The plot is pretty silly, its basically a harem revolving around a female fujoshi who *magically* loses weight after a week from being depressed over her favourite anime character dying. Except, what really kind of makes me laugh is the fact that she really doesn't enjoy that so much and ships each of ...

Shitsurakuen (Manga) add
Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (4/25 chp)
To sum up Shitsurakuen: girls are just objects, guys are dicks.

Just imagine a story based on this, but instead of the girls being used sexually, they are being used as "weapons" in some bizarre game. The guys collect girls in some sort of weapon harem and only the guys that "own" their "weapon" can touch them.

This is the premise and it doesn't get much better. The main character, despite being a girl somehow is one of the "knights" like the guys and isn't classed as a weapon. So she jumps in all SUPER GENGKI and saves the day by saving all the girls ...

Preliminary (11/23 chp)
To clarify, before I start, I usually hate love-triangles. I feel like in many mangas they are a cheap plot device to create drama - you have the love triangle where you have the two main characters who are the obvious couple, and then that ex who won't leave/that unrequited love/the clingy other love interest who guilt trips one character to be with them.

Not in Nanashi no Asterism, though!

The three are all friends who all platonically care about each other a lot. Without spoiling too much, all I can say is that the love triangle is a *proper* love triangle. Not one of ...

Cute, funny, great and genuine characters - this pretty much sums up this manhua. I love this series so much, as of writing this review I'm on chapter 119 and it feels like not a lot has happened and yet I'm still enjoying it all the same.

The two mains are [b]adorable[/b]. I don't use this lightly, but each chapter with them in is ridiculously cute and the humour between them both is laugh out loud funny. Though this is also the case with the rest of the cast, all of them have a little place in my heart. The relationship between one of the ...

Berserk (Manga) add
Preliminary (348/? chp)
Berserk is the best fantasy manga I've ever read. With that, I'm now going to start with the negatives. I love it, but it still has it's flaws.

- The first three volumes: before it gets to the hailed Golden Arc, the first 3 volumes are boring, edging onto cliched and while I was reading them, I was genuinely feeling disappointed throughout, as I had been given high expectations when reading some reviews on here. Thankfully, it gets better after those three volumes, but just be warned that they are not great.

- Nearly everyone is in love/is a fan of the protagonist. (That ol' ...

Doubt (Manga) add
Mixed Feelings
Doubt. So, the premise is that there is a cell phone game where you have to figure out who the killer is, kind of like wink murder, except its with rabbits and a wolf. A wolf has blended in with the group of rabbits, and in this game the rabbits have to figure out who the wolf is before they all get eaten. Except our group of characters wake up to find themselves playing the game for real.

I've read various horror/thriller mangas with a gameshow gimmick, the idea isn't particularly new but I enjoy this kind of theme a lot, so I though what the ...

I'm still not quite sure how I feel about Punpun. There were times where I cried, where I felt disgusted and times where I just outright couldn't feel any ounce of of sympathy or empathy towards Punpun at all. I felt like he deserved all that came to him, though so did he, which gave no feeling of satisfaction at all. Then my emotions would flip and I would feel overwhelmingly bad for feeling that way in the first place and just wanted everything to turn out OK somehow.

Punpun is a dark, twisted, coming of age story that felt like it could've been prevented ...
