I really like this manga. I've heard some people don't like it because of the art. I can't really find any complaints with the story besides the fact that it's a somewhat typical shonen. But what really does it for me is the comedy, most importantly, the facial expressions on the characters. They make me laugh just thinking about them. It's pretty much been said in other comments, but this manga is great. OoO

I was so hooked on this manga that i practically read volumes 1-32 in 2 days. (I originally stopped at volume 21, but i let the scanlators catch up. This manga is so good that i had to start it over again).
I was just so engrossed and it pains me whenever a book is burned, but it had to happen since someone has to become the King of the demon world. But I didn't think that it would had hit me that hard whenever a book was burned. You end up falling in love with these crazy demon kids.

From the moment you pick it up it just hooks you. Time flies by incredibly fast due to the quick and hilariously told plot. Characters are great and the battles never lose your interest. I've read this over twice (though not to the end) just because it's that good. To date I've only read only 2-3 mangas twice.

Highly Recommended

I'm at volume 22, and it has been a very enjoyable read so far! Great story, with lots of funny moments to boot. I absolutely love the mangaka's sense of humor. He never fails to bring a smile to my face smile

I am in love with most of the characters, especially Kiyomaro. (I have a soft spot for smartass dudes *cough*L*cough*).

Well it's not perfect, but I enjoy the story enough to overlook that. My only major complaint is the character of Megumi. She's kind of a Mary Sue :/

Otherwise Konjiki no Gash Bell is a pretty awesome manga. I would say it's as good as the more popular shounen mangas. It may not be every shounen fan's cup of tea, but people should definitely check it out nonetheless!

I find that even though the art is not exactly beautiful, it actually helps to deliver a hilarious feel (especially when purposely drawn hideously xD) I found myself cracking up because of how weird the art was intentionally drawn (crazy bulging eyes).

Honestly, I have no idea if I'm just emotional this week, but I found myself mentally sobbing at some scenes (and actually tearing up during the entire Faudo arc) and then just going crazy with laughter at others. It's a really great series that I heard of when I was very little but never actually got into until recently.

So, Voltron again comes on tv and it reminds of this manga (because of that toy Takamine makes for Gash xD [though the toy is called Vulcan >.>]) and I just start laughing to myself. This series was freaking hilarious AND had great action/plot.
The more observant amongst you may realise that the series wasn't complete back in '06. Truth is, during the 9 month gap between scanlations in '06 and '07 I'd forgotten about this series (or maybe it was the next gap). When it finished a few years later I planned to re-read it from the start but that didn't happen for some reason.
From the 15 or 23 or so volumes that I DID read (and what I know of the end) I think I'm perfectly within my rights to spread word of this series' greatness.
It was so fun. So hilarious. The action scenes had absolutely no ass-pulls (except maybe the second last fight in the series, it seems). Even the little romance, I remember, was hilarious like in 'Nyan Koi!':
"They share a secret only the two of them know about!?" xD

First I saw it and I noticed it differences with other manga not just the drawing but the colouring so on. Many people in Viet Nam telling me that it's not worthy to read because the drawing was so ugly... and I think they have absolutely wasted a marvelous manga. Doesn't matter, just as much as I like it, especially the story and the unique way of drawing. Raiku Makoto, you're a great artist!

one of the winning points to this manga is how some of the characters looking they're spazzing out when fighting and running. other than that i appreciate the story.
