Coming from the same studio as Death Note's anime I had expectations. And I am very glad to say that the expectations were mostly fulfilled. 12 perfectly paced episodes with totally different tastes to every single one.

Death Parade started off strong. One of the biggest downside of some animes is, regardless of how mindblowingly awesome their initial story plot core is, they begin with a boring pilot episode, so it takes more patience, a very good feedback, or sometimes even spoilers to keep us interested to continue on. But I found it is not the case with Death Parade. Instead of starting with some boring read more

Ehh a cooking manga. I started this manga because the cover art looks nice, and the story seemed okay as well. I didn't really know what to expect from this title since I knew nothing about the story beforehand, but after gulping three volumes (in under an hour) it was... meh.

Story seems interesting, albeit with a really overused cliche that follows the our-main-character-is-plain-but-one-day-somebody-comes-and-wrecks-his-everyday-life formula. I haven't actually read a manga where that somebody who wrecks the main character's everyday life is an Earl from Hell, and that he's planning to eat the guy later! But in the end, the story lacks depth. It fails to read more

"The music... is dyed in color."

After such a long time not reading romance stories I'm finally getting into some lately. First I started off with some popular shoujo titles, and when I'm running out of new books to read, I stumbled upon Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (Your Lie in April). I thought this was just going to be a casual read about your typical romance + bits of music. Boy was I wrong, for this manga has proved to be a really emotional ride I shall never forget.

Story - The story is interesting. The beginning was rather predictable, it started with the introduction of read more

I hate depressing stories.

But as much as I do my best to prevent myself from reading such things that might damage me permanently, I still feel the urge to devour every single one of Yoneda Kou's works -- even though the majority of them are so nerve-wracking. Of course, Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai is no exception.

Story - Having quite a fan of BL stories, I have read another BL with the setting of yakuza. But that certain manga's yakuzaness doesn't even compare to Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai. This manga is so dark, complex, sad, with the kind of story that will haunt you in your read more

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is the perfect example on how a shounen series must be.

First I have to say that I'm an avid animanga goer. I have seen quite some series with different genres, and I also have other favorite titles. But among all of those favorite titles of mine, FMA:B stands gallantly, as it was the only one with such intelligence and perfection I was completely at loss for words when finishing it.

Story - The best part that shines the brightest in the series as whole. FMA:B, just like the manga, focuses on the Elric brothers as they embark upon a journey to get their read more

Ok so I gave 10s to all: story, art, character, enjoyment, and overall.

I gave this manga a 10 even though it deserves, like, 1000.

One Piece is a battle mainstream manga. It is full of action and fights, and at first glance might seem stupid and random, but oh gods believe me, this is so very likely to be the BEST battle shounen manga you guys will have ever read. Widely classified as the top three most popular battle series alongside Naruto and Bleach, I've got to admit that One Piece is just.... way above those two. One Piece stands on top, the pinnacle of perfection, read more

Why the heck do I give 10s so easily.

But this manga deserves it anyway.

Story - Negative-kun to Positive-kun is a really lighthearted shounen-ai with cuteness every here and there. The story is very easy to read, very easy to understand, and will give you this weird warm, fuzzy feeling. It basically tells the tale of two boys, a couple, and how they live their (mostly) school life together. Doesn't have much of a real plot nor depth, but very refreshing. When the other BL mangas are just like sex sex sex sex, it's really rare to find a story which doesn't include any sex read more

HAHAHAHA why the heck did I even start reading this manga.

I'm underage and I don't like hard yaoi. I mostly just skip through the NC-17 scenes. I dislike hardcore lemon. I simply like light stories about cute guys falling in love and kissing and making out and being cute and all. So the big question is: why the heck did I even start reading this manga?

I don't know myself.

Story - This manga doesn't have much of a story. Consists of three unrelated main pairs, the stories aren't even my type. They are, of course, Suzuki Tsuta-style, straight to the point, and most of all WEIRD. read more

One of the best sports manga I've ever read, and will always be.

Eyeshield 21 is like the most awesome thing in this world. Oh my god.

Got absolutely no knowledge nor passion for American Football? Doesn't matter. Football might as well be your favorite sport after finishing this manga.

Story - ES21 tells the story of our protagonist Sena Kobayakawa. He, like most shounen anime protagonists, is extremely weak, good-for-nothing, and is constantly bullied. The premise is actually very interesting, because Sena developed a skill which matches him being constantly bullied! Yes, the skill lies within his pair of legs.

Sena has always been special since the start, read more

Goodness gracious, calm down. Before you bash this series for being unoriginal, please stop for a moment and take time to at least read my review.

Nabari no Ou's synopsis might seem like your typical shounen series; a boy main character who only wished for a peaceful life, but he somehow possessed a really great, inhuman power. That is like the basic setting for every shounen manga -- and with Naruto around, who needs another ninja series? We have had enough.

But believe me, Nabari no Ou is none like those cliches.

Story - To sum up without any spoilers, Nabari no Ou tells the story about Rokujou read more
