Not Really Great But Not Really Horrible

After countless chapters of Usagi's less than admirable actions, she finally begins to show some character development. But to me it wasn't enough to make up for her past behavior.

Other than Usagi's personality and the way the other characters acted toward her the only other glaring problem I had was the ending. It was kinda jumbled up and I got lost in the twists and turns. I wouldn't say this manga was a waste of my time but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to others.

I'm gonna make this simple the girl is a stupid useless excuse for a humanbeing , all she does is eat sleep, cry and relie on her female dogs , the girl acted like a complete idiot. . . .I feel sorry for her childhood friend having to carry the retard on his back for 2 years and the outcome is her . . Im actuAlly apualed over the fact that people can't say how they really feel about this , I mean if you look at every comment you will see that there bad but are but in a nice way whyy do that ?? ... I really want to express my anger but I can't becuz of the no swearing policy !! But I just think this manga sucked I really didn't like the summery but read it cuz of the reviews but after the skipping and finally getting chapter 42 I quit and skipped to the end and ...I'm happy I didn't continue . Anyway I love this so if you haven't heard of this and your desperate read crimson hero its great unlike this . . . Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time

I enjoyed this series. it was way better than expected and the artwork was beautiful. I thought i would hate the heroine because of her personality (crybabyish) but she got so much better when you find out she is actually useful. i would recommend this to people who like light but very romancey manga. the last story with momozu was super cheesy. i didnt like that one as much.

Tsuki no shippo is a good manga. Its a good read. the story started as as ur typical shoujo and later on showed quite a character development. the Usagi(main lead) was not likeable at first, her character development made her more likeable than at first. yet, i cant say she's my favorite heroine of all. The art is good and clean.

On the negative side it suffers from the "harem syndrome" as i call it where many male characters fall in love with Usagi. a bit irritating to me. Also, there were parts where the author could have explored it more. She lead up to it, but dint flesh it out enuf. otherwise, those issues would have helped the manga more.

that being said, its a good read. i rate it as 8.

Maybe I'm just becoming cynical after reading 100+ shoujo series.

Either way, this manga was nothing short of awful, and had little real substance to it. It was just like any other bad shoujo series...incapable girl falls in love with the unattainable hot guy, the hot guy doesn't care for her....then later, childhood friend shows up with romantic interest in the incapable girl, and hot guy becomes jealous and wants the incapable girl after realizing how loyal/cute/fun/etc she is. The cycle continues and ends with happily ever after for everybody.

I wouldn't have minded the generic plot above if the manga had delve deeper into the characters' inner struggles/feelings/actual romantic developments... but none was present. The main girl was cute enough and I loved how she was very good with making herbal medicines, but her development and the scenes were so hastily done that I had no chance of relating/bonding/getting attached to her at all.

I wouldn't have batted an eyelash had she been killed and then fed to the dogs. In fact, I would probably given this manga a higher rating if that had happened.

The art was good though, and the guy was hot--so it deserves credit in that respect. However, the plot and story falls behind by a stretch. Don't waste your time if you want to read something complex.

As with most shoujo leads the char is pretty annoying, but thats not my main problem with this story. it was great when it was just a simple romantic comedy with ninjas, but then the author wanted to make everything effing dramatic. DRAMADRAMADRAMADRAMA and not one bit of it was any good. To top it off the author seems to have no commitment to the crappy drama, and lets everything just go off to unrealistic good outcomes. people with 3 year vendettas, and grief over their suicided wife just up and forget their problems cuz she said so. All of the forced grief and sadness is almost totally ignored. overall from the middle up until the final 2 chapters this story is a flat out train wreck that deserves nothing short of being burned. Fortunately the final time skip was rather entertaining/romantic(great to see the little kids outcome, as well as the happy creepy glare family... those little girls haunt me...), and the beginning half was funny/sweet so it saved itself. Overall i would suggest just skimming through the last half.

People are being so harsh about the heroine! She isn't that bad at all! I actually love how she isn't the yamato nadeshiko-type. She isn't cute at all either lol, and that's one thing that usually annoys me about manga females sometimes--that they're supposed to be tear-inducingly "kawaii."
The fact that she is the most useless ninja ever is really endearing to me, and I think that the humor and the seriousness of the story line are really well balanced so far.

I just started reading Tsuki no Shippo today and was shocked to realize that I'm already nearing the end of volume 3 bc I was so wrapped up in it. Soooo still reading it (after all there are 15 volumes--yikes!) so I'll make sure to update my review as I go along smile


*Update (vol.6 chap.36) : I really do not like the way that Hanzou keeps saying "lose weight to be my bride." Buddy, eff you!! Rant complete.

This manga was quite a breath of fresh air! I was skeptical at first because i'm not exactly a person who reads adventure/action/historical manga but i certainly dont regret reading this. I loved everything about it: characters, plot, drawing, development, how everything was resolved and the ending. Although it's 15 volumes, it felt so short and was really addicting! Usagi was kinda annoying and useless at times but that also develops later on. Don't hesitate to read this manga because of the many volumes and don't give up on it because in the end, i guarantee you'll have no regrets =).

P.S- when you finish Tsuki no Shippo, read Tsuki no Toiki after becsuse its part of it

when i started reading this, it was pretty good and funny. i can tolerate her stupidity... until the middle of the series.... she is just too stupid and cry way too much. i like it when she was strong and independent but she revert back =.=
besides my complaints about Usa, i like all the other characters and the story. i hate the ending though..

I love this series. I wish there are more manga like this. Although i am biased since im a fan o the mangaka. But even if im not, i still would love this. I love hanzou! I love the historical plot, even if im not japanese! You would still find it interesting. And i love how the male lead fell inlove with usagi. I also love Usagi's little side kick. He's just so cute. Mannn i love this manga. I wish i havent read it and just starting to read it so i could enjoy it again. Definitely one of my faves. I usually forgot the proagonists' names after finish reading it but in this manga, i still remember their names.
