Rave (Manga) add (All reviews)
Forget about Fairy Tail kids, Rave Master is the real deal when it comes to battle shonen. Having read over both manga several times, I can easily say that Mashima really dropped the ball with Fairy Tail and that Rave is a much better story and it stands above almost every other shonen I've read.

Now, as much I as I enjoy hyping Rave Master up, I can't deny that it's another generic and cliche shonen. It has the stereotypical characters and tropes. But what I am saying is that Rave takes these cliches and executes them in a way that is better than just read more

Bleach (Manga) add (All reviews)
Preliminary
Bleach is a joke of a manga with absolutely no redeeming qualities besides the fact that it is mindlessly "entertaining"

The manga is flawed in just about every way possible and its actually getting kind of pathetic to read right now.
I mean, I can't name think of a positive thing about it(the whole mindlessly "entertaining" is another way of calling it stupid).

The characters are generally one dimensional and receive little to no actual growth or development. There are a few characters with some depth(Byakuya for instance) but most characters are shallow and their entire character analysis can be summed up with in just a few read more

Preliminary
Fairy Tail is a flawed manga is many ways, and it's a bitter disappointment as it could have been so much better. It's a really generic series, with the typical FRIENDSHIP speeches and character resolve stuff, but that's really only looking at the surface as to why this manga is flawed


-------THIS REVIEW HAS SPOILERS--------------------------------------------
Story: The story for Fairy Tail is an odd one, the concept seems fairly original compared to most other shonen titles and I can actually respect that. The problem with Fairy Tail's story is the way it advances. Most of the arcs have little to nothing to do with the main plot read more

Utter garbage.

This is Twilight for older Japanese men.

It is a fantasy for many older Japanese men to live out.

First off. Araragi is a self insert character for the viewers. His appearance is generic, his personality is bland, and his entire character just screams "typical Japanese male."

Now I can say a lot more things about this subject. But I'll move on.

The show is based off of dialogue and Japanese puns/humor.

So exactly what type of entertainment can be derived for non-Japanese people?

Absolutely none.

The jokes are absolutely terrible and cannot be translated to an American audience very well. Proof of this is the lack of a dub read more
