This manga needs a review, so here we go!
(Includes major spoilers)
After considering buying Shibuya Goldfish for a while I finally did it. I had pretty high expectations for it, the plot seemed perfectly crazy (like a Japanese version of Sharknado) I was certain it would be amazing and totally different from other mangas. But uh oh it fucking sucked and was a complete waste of time and my hard earned pocket money.
Why was this so bad? The plot is so crazy and weird and could have been enjoyable if done properly. A manga about an apocalypse with giant, flying goldfish sounds so unique, but everything
about the plot is so generic, it's almost impressive. The main character is so boring and typical which doesn't work here at all (like those found in a harem anime, you know, those without personality with short, black hair) And the rest of the characters are generic too. Like, all of them. It's like the author copy-pasted the most used characters from other mangas and just threw them into his manga without having a single individual thought. It just becomes so awkward and painful reading it because it doesn't make any sense.
And then there's the plot. I liked the idea of goldfish being the villains. But somehow the goldfish doesn't become the main focus, the main focus is the boring, generic mc being around boring, generic girls, so having goldfish flying in the air while cute anime girls blush at the mc accidentally showing him their panties and some occasional gory scenes just feel strange. Who even is the demographic for this comic?
The art is fine. Not bad, not good. I'm not sure how to describe this, but it's missing something. It looks too clean, like it wasn't drawn by a human, which I dislike.
This is one of those mangas where it could be an amazing and totally unique experience, but the author fucked it up and it just becomes weird and mildly angering to read.
