Paradise Kiss (Manga) add
Spoiler
(Hi! Please read this review at anilist DOT co/review/20115 as it was intended. I've used many images and the formatting is suited for anilist's html. I've just copied and pasted it here but the review is mine.)

For starters, yes, I'm the odd one out here. I didn't like Paradise Kiss as much as I initially thought I would, but I didn't exactly hate it either. In Summation: it has its problems and in the end I decided to give it 6/10. Which, in my opinion, is pretty fair. There __WILL__ be spoilers in this review, so beware!

Ningyo Series (Manga) add
Honestly, all of these short stories are interesting and could be very promising, but... they never amounted to anything.

It's kind of that formula "monster of the week" (which in this version it's like "villain of the week"), but without a bigger villain or bigger... plot?

The MCs don't have a common goal, in fact, they don't have a goal at all. Mana and Yuta teamed up because, well, she had nowhere to go and apparently neither did he? But like... they have nothing in common. And this could've been better explored, but oh well... no time for character development when we have to create a brand ...

Peach Girl (Manga) add
This is less of a review for others and more of a: >my< thoughts on Peach Girl.
So it DOES include spoilers!!!!! (but if you’re familiar with the TokyoPop version, you know about the titles. And if you know about the titles, I’m sure you can at least guess where I’m going at).

~INTRODUCTION~

Listen, Peach Girl means a lot to me. It was the first shoujo I ever read, the first manga I ever collected and the first manga that I bought completely “blind”: all of the other mangas I bought I had already watched the anime adaptation first and knew at least a little bit about ...

Peach Girl (Anime) add
I first found out about Peach girl through its manga, when it was licensed in my country in the very beginning of the 2000s. Years later, I found out there was an anime adaptation, but I postponed watching it because I wanted to reread the manga and experience it alongside the anime.

That was a MISTAKE. Comparing both of them at the same(ish) time only made the anime’s flaws WORSE.

The original manga has its problems (which I’ll discuss when I write my manga review), but the anime’s far surpasses those!

Almost nothing about the anime is worth:

– not the animation;
Which is ugly, broken, lazy, not at all ...

Wow. This is so silly and dumb sometimes, but it's also one of its greatest assets!!! I absolutely love Neda's comedy and to be honest, it baffles me how little popular this is and how many low ratings it got. REALLY????? THIS IS COMEDY GOLD RIGHT HERE!!!

*a-hem* of course, to like and even want to read this spin-off, you have to first be acquainted with the characters of bnha. But even so, I think the comedy is funny enough even to the more "casual" fans.

All of the characters' personalities are slightly exaggerated (for comedic purposes), but even so, they're all very much "them". I didn't ...

Preliminary (7/? chp)
[Very little spoilers about only one of the chapters, but it's not a big deal]

!!!!!!!!!!This is a review of the FIRST VOLUME ONLY. I don't know if this gets better later or not!!!!!!!!!

This was basically fanfiction written by a man who's never written fanfic before and for which i had to PAY TO READ

Some characters were kinda.... ooc??? not entirely, but their characteristics were either watered down or way too exaggerated. You could tell hori didn't write this.

Not to mention that you have the opportunity to write whatever you want with the characters and yet you dedicate A LOT OF PAGES to mineta and kaminari ...

Solanin (Manga) add
Spoiler
[THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!]

To be honest, the only redeeming quality about this is the art.

For me, a slice of life is only successful if you CARE enough about the characters to want to know what happens in their life. And the characters from Solanin? ugh. I couldn't connect to ANY of them!!!

Meiko and Taneda's relationship didn't seem real to me. They didn't seem like they liked each other, it just felt like they were together out of necessity, like "I have no one else here in Tokyo so I'll just have to stick with you". That's... not romance. That's not what a relationship is supposed ...

Preliminary (3/15 chp)
so let me get this straight about this manga

- the fat chick is SO UGLY to the point that she's bullied by her classmates
- her only family is her mother, who doesn't treat her well either
- she has NO FRIENDS
- in the very first chapter she TRIES TO KILL HERSELF

and yet *somehow* she's THE VILLAIN of the story???????? and the beautiful, thin main character, who has a boyfriend and lots of friends, is the UNDERDOG????????????

did I get it all right or am I hallucinating??? I know I only read 3 chapters but that's pretty much the idea I got from it. I already disliked it ...

What if I told you that

- I'm a guy
- But as a kid I used to crossdress
- Also my family has this weird "condition" that makes the guys slowly turn into girls if they're kissed before they're adults and the only way to counteract this sorcery is if the person that they kissed keep kissing them and making them hot and bothered, which in turn increases the level of testosterone but not enough to fully turn them back into guys
- ?????? uuuuhhhhh... I lost my train of thought

This is the basic (LOL "BASIC") premise of this manga. Since I read this in the middle ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (5/13 eps)
From episodes 1~3 it's a really interesting story and it makes you fall in love with the characters (mostly Bunny Senpai). You know the drill: girl is invisible, boy is the only one able to see her, they start to bond and he somehow wants to (and is able to??) stop the ~curse~ and she's visible again!!

Yes, all of that happens in the lapse of 3 episodes. This anime has 13 episodes. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENS IN THE REMAINING 10 EPISODES?!?!?!

I was already kinda skeptical before going to episode 4. I mean, it all moved SO fast... the romance (it was basically: episode 1 they ...
