Warning: Massive ending spoilers ahead. I'm very sorry but that 6 up there can't be properly explained without delving deep into spoiler territory.

I wish Usagi Drop had 2 separate entries, one being the start and one everything after the time-skip, starting in chapter 26. It's for one very simple reason. Usagi Drop is a prime example of how a great concept can still run off the rails badly. It's a masterclass in turning what starts as a warm, cute and fuzzy story into a catastrophic failure of a 'romantic' drama.

The gist of the premise is that Daikichi (a man who couldn't more obviously be unhappy read more

I feel like the best way to describe Aoi Sekai is as follows:
Say you're at a party scouting for a nice girl. You see some nice ones, you see some slightly less nice ones but nobody that really grabs you. And then it happens. This [insert your favorite hair color]-ed vixen appears and draws you in. And after getting to know her better a bit, you're drawn in even further. So when you wake up after what you hoped would be a great night with her, you instead wake up disappointed and wondering if it was all worth it.

Don't get me wrong, Aoi Sekai certainly read more

What's this? A short Beatles-themed manga with no reviews at all? Better make one then!


Story: 7/10
Contrary to what the synopsis actually says, 2 of the band members end up in past Japan. Besides that, interesting premise. Just a shame it never went anywhere in its short runtime. Granted, there's not a whole lot you can do in 9 chapters but even for such a length, nothing really happens.

Art: 8/10
BwB looks good. In fact, it looks great. Environments are detailed and look very nice, as do characters. It's just that the faces look....off. I can't quite put my finger on it but they look sort of read more

Note: Some minor spoilers. Beware.

The summary on MAL is a little confusing so I'll try my best to make a more coherent one.

In middle school, there was a certain basketball team whose players had immense talent. This caused them to be dubbed the "Generation of Miracles". After finishing middle school, they all went their seperate ways but talk remained of a mystery 'phantom player', their 6th man.
The story starts with Kagami Taiga, a returning student joining the Seirin high school basketball team. Another person who joins is Tetsuya Kuroko. He's weak, can't shoot and has no presence on the court but herein lies his read more

All I can say for Drifters of the Dead is that if you thought that HotD got too pervy at times, you'll REALLY want to steer clear from this.

I would talk about the plot but there's barely any to begin with and what's there is beyond stupid. Amusing as hell though. Even if it's a little contrived but why should I care when it entirely consists of the female cast dressing up in bikinis 2 sizes too small and some more girl-on-girl action, right?

Not a masterpiece but you could definitely do worse. It's got babes in bikinis, it's got humor, everything looks pretty, it just read more
