Loved reading this story. It has such creativity, cute characters who struggle to find their places in a world that is relatively harsh on these children, and beautiful artwork to boot! The story is wonderfully executed and sets up so nicely for a non-existent continuation that to this day I wish would be made!

This was one of the first series I bought and I'm so glad I was able to find all of the volumes. Such a heartwarming story that I can't praise enough.

Lighthearted and heavy at the same time. I really enjoyed the story and characters. I felt that the pacing matched the mood and style of the story. Will probably pick up to read again!

I read it on a whim and I ended up really liking the story. It was definitely very fresh and new, the concept of the story. I really loved the anima markings. Those were pretty darn sexy. I would mind having a tattoo with Senri's marking. In my opinion, I thought this was a pretty lighthearted read and very cute <3

However, I am extremely distraught over the ending of the story though. It sort of left in a cliffhanger like ending. That was the only reason why I gave this manga only four stars. I just wish the final chapters of the last volume would have elaborated more on Cooro's mental state when he on that funeral pyre, how is it that he managed to get his wings back, why did Fly lose the wings he took from Cooro, and why did Blanca just fade away like that?

It would also have been great to know if Blanca's existence had any relation with the animas, how she came to be if any, and Blanca's ties with Cooro.

Heartwarming adventures

This manga is about four kids with animal-like powers traveling from town to town experiencing life and the treatment of their kind. The ending is a bit rushed and confusing, leaving the reader puzzled on some issues. But they are not relevant to the overall story.

Note: Whitespades review is somewhat misleading, one would think this contains pedophilia, which it does not.

i had read it halfway before. i dropped it because im quite uncomfortable with certain subject such as slavery and pedophilia, but now i had went through hundreds of other manga and become quite jaded, i found that i can enjoy this. a nice, cute read where the harshest of conditions treated with a smile.

update:
at last i manage to finish this manga. what the...the ending with fly is unexpected and a bit creepy. i dont understand the last chapter much. however overall this manga is quite good. theres no grand plot or super villain, but their adventure is certainly cute and painful at the same time. really, for a manga populated with kids, somehow it come across as quietly mature.

It's a pretty cute series and I like the ideas behind it.
I realize that there's barely any story line.
The point of manga is to entertain you, though, and this manga did entertain me quite a bit.

Anyways, the characters were cute and unique, the stories were intriguing, and the artwork was good. I reccomend this to anyone looking for a cute manga about kids (with animal qualities ^_^).

I hate hearing biased reviews that complain solely about the slow plot speed of the book. Seriously, that's hardly of any relevance to the quality of the manga.

Anyways! All in all, the series is very entrancing yet heartwarming at the same time. The detail that goes into the backgrounds and title pages are breathtaking while the actual style of the art is easy on the eyes. Although, I'd have to say that my favorite part of the manga was the realism of the character's personalities and actions; it's almost as if you're watching actual children confront daily adversaries with, I might add, cleverness and creativity. Definitely a top favorite of mine and worth the read. ^_^

i loved the uniqueness and junk. it was a nice and refreshing story. it also went by tooo quickly, not that she moved by too quickly, i just mean it felt like i read it all too quickly.. 10 volumes? it felt more like 3 or 4.. =) i enjoyed it greatly though. and thought the ending was interesting. =) .. i wish more was explained though, ut.. i guess i'll have to live with it. it is definitely and recommended read if you want something to cheer you up and go by quickly. =) or something a little.. different. =)

Okay, here's the thing, when I first read the description, it totally got me, and I was even more taken in by the protagonists. It's a very cute and fluffy manga, but it also has another element that really keeps you into it. I HIGHLY recommend it. I think it's adorable and lovely and just...

I like it alot is kinda what I'm getting at.
