From Tokyopop:

Beings who possess animal-like powers walk among humans in this alternate universe. These mysterious mutants, the +Anima, are shunned by society. Four outcasts in particular--Cooro, a boy with crow-like powers; Husky, a fish-boy; Senri, a bear +Anima; and a girl named Nana, who wields the power of the bat--search for others like themselves while trying to gain acceptance in a world cruel to anyone or anything that is different.

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 ^_^).

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.

Light and cute outlook of dark issues

Somehow this manga manages to cast some very dark issues in a cute light, dealing with feelings of isolation of minorities, near-death inspired phobias, slavery and inequality of the world in a cute and optimistic way. It's not got much in the way of plot, focusing more on the personalities of the characters and looking into their background. However it's an enjoyable read after reading several tragic mangas or with elaborate plot lines. Very light and cute with no annoying ecchi or without being irritating.

EDIT: Well I guess anyone reading this should look forward to a long wait since NCIS have dropped it as a project so now we need to hope a new group take it up to finish off the last volume or so.

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. =)

+Anima is a very cute manga, one of the best I've read as of yet. It's a good one to read if you're tired of long and dark plots that are hard to understand. I rated a 10 because I personally couldn't love it more, but then, I usually tend to lean toward the stuff that most people don't like... o.O; I think this is an exception though. ^_^

I finally understand what others said, "darkly cute". It's indeed cute, yet has very dark background. Full of emotions: Heartwarming, sweet, painful, happy, and fun experience at the same time. Author has detail explanation about the world and +anima throughout the story, and it makes everything just make sense. I think Cooro's personality make him imperfect happy-good-typical-shonen character, but perfect heroine for the manga. I'm glad Husky is a guy mermaid, and Nana is a bat girl (not ordinary, huh). And Senri the bear! Aww, he's the oldest in the group, yet the cutest one for me >v<.

Wonderful plot and art. A MUST READ.
