A lot of the comments have been degrading the second arc, and how the first arc was all it was worth... but that's not true. Alive has a pretty linear storyline, and the difference and the gap between the first and second arcs aren't that great. There isn't any point in stopping halfway, and if you think it's confusing, then you need a better hold if the English language or read the raws. It is true that it is can be pretty ugly and dark but suck it up, there's worse out there.

the only complaint that i have is
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Megumi should have just gone with Mitama into space and Nami should get Taisuke, because Megumi did nothing to deserve him

One of the best shounen manga if not top one.
And i want to say this to people that have "oryginality" problem -
naturally most shounen manga are similar, same genre doh..

I have read 11 volumes in one go, so atleast give it a try :3

Woah! When I read this I had to re-read it again and again. Anyway this series is EXCELLENT. One of the very few I'm collecting. But the only down side in volume four it slacks off in the art department and the story is a little predictable. Still the story takes an usual twist to the normal, "I HAVE MORE POWER THAN YOU!". Where the main character has to use smarts alot instead of power.

In the beginning, artists were trying too hard to be purely shonen. From that the style became off and because they were beginners they were trying a bit too hard. But later they became more refine and their effects become better.

I'm up to the fifth volume and if you like a well paced story I suggest you pick this one up! It is really great!

I decided to give this a try. Unfortunetly, I couldn't find anything about it. And when I did find something about it, it was about another manga with the same name. I thought it was a romance at first until the 2nd chapter. This is very Shounen action.
It's pretty good too so far. 3 chapters, about to read the fourth.

Anyways, give this a try if you like Naruto, Gantz, and Hunter X Hunter, It can get gory though, Around HxH level, Not Gantz level, atleast not yet.

Other than Naruto and Bleach, I've never tried Shonen mangas much. This one actually was interesting and had me hooked. But that's mainly because of my interest in a lot of fights, blood, action etc. And the plot line is really good-- at least to me. smile

One another note I especially liked it because
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
there was a sufficient amount of angsty, one sided romance in the first arc, which I liked. Being a mainly shoujo reader, I gotta see some romance. And this series had it. I liked how crazy Hirose goes when Megu isn't with him/ thinking about Taisuke. I'm not sure if there are any couples that get together, but if there are I am hoping for Hirose and Megu! >.< Mainly because he seems to need her.

Hopefully it still keeps me engaged later in the series.

One of favorite mangas ever, if not my most favorite manga ever.

I started reading this, mostly because I had free time and wanted to read something.I didn't have a thought that I might end up loving this.At the start it seemed a bit weird to me but as the story progressed the plot and characters became deeper and at one moment I noticed that I'm already loving this XD

I'm always carving for more <3

This has great epic action scenes, a good balance of comedy and drama, cool characters, and an exciting story. The art is a bit messy in the first chapters but it improves with every new chapter. Also if you like manga with split personality or events where protagonists turn evil, you should check this manga out.

For God Sake, I LOVE THIS MANGA! Nice story twist, AWESOME DRAWING, I dont mind the ending but I kinda hoped Taisuke would end with Nami instead with Megu. I know Megu is Taisuke's childhood friend and probably the two of them had been in love since long time ago, but maaaaannn Megu's line always sounds cheesy and she's so stupid and tried to look like an angel -_- I just hate her for no reason. Nami is way better.
