Off i go again with this sequel stack. Hopefully i get to read some great series and have a higher final score than last time. As before i will provide my thoughts on each entry upon finishing it.
20th Century Boys
Manga, 22 vol, 1999 Me:- Author:10
Another unbelievable work of sci-fi mystery with the classic integration of real life history in the mix that only Urasawa's manga can provide. Suspenseful and engaging from beginning to end. Totally amazing as expected. 10/10
Anamorphosis no Meijuu
Manga, 1 vol, 2008 Me:- Author:6
Another manga that consists of one longer tale coupled with a few oneshots, much like Fraction. Unlike Fraction though, this one barely squeezed a positive rating out of me because frankly the only good story is the titular Anamorphosis, which is another great showing of Kago's love and understanding of manga on a technical level as well as his ability to subvert expectations with meta storytelling. The rest of the stories are just plain bad for the most part. 6/10
Black Cat
Manga, 20 vol, 2000 Me:- Author:8
Despite the fairly bland first couple of volumes this series manages to deliver in all the ways your typical battle shounen does, albeit without ever really doing much to distinguish itself from the competition. Cool characters and fun battles is pretty much all that this series is gonna mean to most readers but for a good reason. 8/10
Cocoon
Manga, 1 vol, 2008 Me:- Author:8
A very sad little war story that never overstays it's welcome and manages to grip with it's tale of innocent kids during wartimes and shock you with it's contrast of relatively simple and cute visuals and the dark themes and events they portray. 8/10
Doron Chibimaru
Manga, 1 vol, 1955 Me:- Author:7
A oldie, this little classic gag manga sets itself apart from most manga of its time by, first of all, actually being quite entertaining despite its age and also having an art style that is genuine appealing even after all this time. It seems to be more than one volume long so its probably one of those cases of MAL needing to update its data but who cares, nice little series. 7/10
Endou Hiroki Tanpenshuu
Manga, 2 vol, 1995 Me:- Author:7
As my first experience with Hiroki's manga i thought i was getting into one of the best short story collections i had ever read after finishing the third story, all three seemed near perfect in writing and sufficient in terms of length so that they didn't seem like underutilized concepts. Then cane the rest of this manga... I really hope that these types of stories don't show up whenever i get around to reading EDEN because they just felt forcibly edgy and ruined the amazing stories at the beginning by being included in the collection. Platform was kinda nice at parts though... 7/10
