Although the story of "Steal Moon" is an original one, I really wish it could have been pulled off with more ease.

When I first found the manga, the thoughts going through my head were, "Oh, neat, street fights, peep rooms, drama..." Well, no one even mentioned the sci-fi aspect of the manga. In fact, the story revolves around something completely and totally different than what the synopsis leads you to believe! Therefore, if you think the synopsis is interesting and you might want to check it out, remember that this series is focused around sci-fi and can be a little high-tech at times.

Story:
I have to say this was the first time I've ever read any neko yaoi/shounen-ai. It was interesting, to say the least. The story of Love Neco pulled me in so quickly, I was sort of surprised when I found out that I had reached the end of the series. A few things in the series were odd or didn't fit in, but other than that it was definitely unique and very very cute!

Art:
Love Neco was also my first taste of Mishima Kazuhiko's artwork. It's undeniably cute, and enhanced the story so much. I laughed often at the artwork in the backgrounds (pay attention!) and read more

Ghost! (Manga) add (All reviews)
Story:
When I first found the Eerie Queerie manga page, I was like, "Oh, this is SO COOL! Unfortunately, it took me a while to track it down online (head to mangafox, peoples!) so by the time I actually got to reading it the glamour of finding a cool-sounding manga to read had already worn off. None-the-less, once I sarted reading, that feeling was back in full force! I actually growled every time I was called away from the computer, I was so captivated by the story. The series itself definitely gives off a warm, comfortable aura that makes it easily memorable.

Tactics (Anime) add (All reviews)
Story: Tactics is a great anime, and its plot is actually quite realistic. I boy who admires a sealed Ogre-eater and dreams of one day breaking the seal and becoming freinds with the Ogre-eater...well, it COULD happen. And at least they didn't make it so that Kantarou, the dreamer, was still TRYING to find the seal. The plot was, actually, one of the highlights if you look back on the story, and the last episode is a real shocker! I will always associate Tactics with certain episodes, and whenever I think of it a rush of slides roll through my head, and it makes me read more

Model (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
First of all, I should say how intriguing Model is, as you are first starting to read it. At a certain con (coughOHAYOCONcough) my mom bought me the first 3 volumes, just to try it out. We had to go back the next day to get the last 4 volumes, b/c I had already finished the first 3 and still wanted more.

The story in itself is very unique. I have never read such an interesting vampire story, and with such a quirky twist here and there. The ending was a bit rushed, if there isn't a better word for it, but otherwise it left you read more

I think the best part of this story is the art. It's really amazing, and part of the reason I picked this book off the shelf. Compared to the actual story, the artwork is amazing. Just sitting and staring at a picture is enough entertainment.
The characters, however, are quite peculiar. Reading through the first volume was a bit tough, because this rewound and fast-forwarded until your brain felt fried. It just didn't seem to make sense, and I think because every single character is secretive and mysterious, none of the confusing bits of the story are clearied up.
As far as entertainment is concerned, the read more
