Aoi Hana is a normal female high-school student, though she is extremely clumsy and thus tagged as good-for-nothing. But Hana wants to change herself and decides that finding a part time job would be taking the first step in that direction. Being an animal lover, Hana's job of dreams is encountering animals day-to-day and taking care of them - the zoo sounds like the perfect place for that. So when she happens to see a job offer from a local animal park it's settled she'll attend a job interview.
When Hana arrives at the zoo everything seems just fine. The "Oumagadoki Zoo" might be going south but altogether it's your regular animal park. Just a very normal zoo, one might think. But that is only until Hana gets to meet the zoo director...

I am disappoint. . . ;..( I have encountered similar situations in the past, but this one hurt me the most. The one-shot was too good, and the serialization was just too horrible. (in comparison)

you must not read allot of oneshots than, most of them are far better than the manga they spawn with few exceptions, like when the oneshot is a pilot chapter fo the manga, there are a few i read that were more or less self contained stories, but where continues with the manga, those ones usually suffer allot.

now to get to more of the point, the oneshot was better, but wouldnt have lasted in jump. it was more or less a battle manga with a gimmick, a decent one but yea. it also had a definite end. most manga love to have the most abstract end possible, for milking purposes. this one went completely abstract to lengthen the manga and probably make it more interesting. however they completely bley the character designs they set up in the oneshot in favor of a more retarded protagonists that seam to be popular now.

This is the first manga I have seen where the prototype (the oneshot) is way better than the serialized manga.

The art style was way more original and detailed in the oneshot and the character of the director was much more likeable. Now he is only a violent freak and I find him quite the opposite to what he was.

It has just started and may be to soon to judge, but I have the feeling that the WSJ editors screwed this manga turning down his good points and making it more generic.

Of all the WSJ titles I have read (past and present), Oumagadoki Doubutsuen is by far the most surrealistic and strange manga i have ever read and actually enjoy.

Not only is the setting and the story is quite original, but it manage to go on a good pace without being so boring. The style of this manga is quite fitting for the title and the characters are not bad themselves.

Weekly Shonen Jump may have a bad start for 2010, but this title might actually be the few (if not the few) to be the hit that they're looking for.
