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!

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.

Very cute and definitely worth reading
the characters (especially Cooro and Husky) are adorable but their stories are so tragic sad
you must read it smile

Uplifting Adventure

First, a quick comment- it's a shounen manga, check the serialization (though at the time I type this the label is correct.)

Anyway, this is another solid uplifting adventure story. It's clearly meant to be an exercise in escapism, but the storytelling is reasonably compelling, and the fantastical environment is infused with just enough drama to keep it interesting and not lose the effect. A great read for a lazy Sunday morning or rainy afternoon.

There isn't so much of a plot in this manga, but the fun loving characters and short little stories make this a nice read when you want to avoid the more complex and darker stories out there. Plus I love the art!

The characters are fun and the art is quite good. There isn't much of a plotline (from what I've seen), but the cute stories about the main characters are nevertheless enjoyable to read.

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.

If you ever need an extra dose of cuteness to get through the day, this is a great series to pick up. While it lacks many conventional characteristics of a manga series (like a plot), it makes up for it in the adorable art-style, amusing characters, and interesting side-stories. It's definitely not a series to come to if you want serious characters or a detailed, dramatic plotline, but it's a good series for relaxation and a short burst of amusement.
