Beauty Pop9I agree with Jeshia...
Kiri is possibly one of my favorite shoujo leads ever because she is not annoyingly strong, excessively cheerful, or falls head over heels over a guy. Despite her detached and aloof persona, she is a caring person who helps girls to be more beautiful and confident without asking for anything in returns. It's hard to find many shoujo leads that have a calm personality, someone who thinks things through and is willing to help others like Kiri.

Busou Renkin5.5<Some unintentional spoiler ahead. Read at your own risk.>

After reading Rurouni Kenshin, a truly great manga, Buso Renkin falls below my expectation. The concepts of homunculus and alchemy are ridiculous, and that Kazuki becomes so powerful in a period of few months is hard to believe. It's different with Kenshin from RK, who is a strong fighter, because Kenshin is well into his twenties (despite his young looks) and has been training for the Battousai for quite a while. Kenshin also has a ve...... View

Destination Heaven Chronicles6Like Hanjae and Takahashi4me have mentioned, the begining of the story is promising but eventually falls flat due to many new characters and a weak and unrealistic drama. I'm referring to the family drama between

Fruits Basket9.5Fruit Basket, also lovingly known as Furuba, is strictly a human story, despite the façade of the fantasy element. The ability to change into zodiac animals is merely a premise, but the exploration of human needs or the lack of them is the main theme. Takaya sensei focuses on very real human issues such as abandonment, loneliness, and yearnings experienced by the Furuba children/ adolescents. In reality, don’t we all want to be accepted by our peers and loved by our parents? Don’t deny i...... View

Kaguya Hime5.5Even though the English scanlation of the series has not been completely scanlated, I have read this series in the Vietnamese version and, thus, can write a review about it. I really think this series would have benefited with another writer and Shimizu-sensei can do the illustration, because the art is pretty enough, albeit a little old. I don't mind the age of the characters because that isn't too important to plot development.

There is very little consistency in the characters, their relati...... View

Legend of Nereid7I usually don't care to much for her works, but this is one of the few that I actually enjoyed. The story line is not very strong, but the main female character is less insufferable than HMR’s other female protagonists. This story is a reminiscent of the Red River (which I dislike and couldn’t bear to finish) and of Basara (which I adore and read twice), due to the nature of prophecy, of an ancient, historical setting, and of some political upheaval in their nations.
It’s not particular...... View

Nononono6I generally dislike sport manga but have decided to read it anyway based on many good reviews on MU and just to kill some time over the summer. It fell below my non-expectant expectations, if you get my drift. IMHO, ski jumping is just as exciting as fishing or golf, only so much more dangerous and can induce cardiac arrest in a weak and acrophobic person like yours truly. However, I give the mangaka props for doing his research and his willingness on covering a sport different than the norma...... View
Normal City9.5If you can overlook the art, you will enjoy this series immensely.
Set in some distance future, a group of friends who dwelled on Mars, are chosen to live on Earth in Normal City. The group of friends consist of the loud and crass Sion Revy, boy-crazy Jean-Tania Campbell, the quiet and reserved, but emotionally intense Mars Heaven. They are chosen due to their special power: ESP, extra sensory perception. They live together with a new housemate named Isha Green, who, like them, is an ESPer, bu...... View
Omae ga Sekai wo Kowashitai nara7.5What save this manga from a bad rating is the art, which is gorgeous in its simplicity and subtle use of tone. The characters always look beautiful but kind of sickly, which enhances the effect of vampirism. While the storytelling is not bad, the pacing is a little off. Frankly, it rushes to the end so quickly that the readers can hardly understand what has happened. There is very little character development, being a 3-volume series. I guess I would recommend this series because the subdued ...... View

Pet Shop of Horrors9I picked up volume 1 of Pet Shop of Horrors at my local library few years ago and was hooked at first read. The art was stunning and the characters were unique, though the story was hardly horrifying. The self-contained, episodic plots mean you can read books in any order and can still understand the gist of it, which was great for me because I was borrowing the books from the library instead of reading them online. It was only in the later volumes that reading them in order was a better way,...... View

Rurouni Kenshin9Rurouni Kenshin is in the top ten on my list of the best manga out there. The plot is great, the fighting scenes are amazing and never repetitive (or longwinded like SDK), the characters (even the supporting characters) are likeable and sympathetic, the pacing of the story is so perfect that you'll never get bored. Kenshin is definitely a great hero, someone who fights for what he believes in, as an idealistic Battousai or as a peace-loving Rurouni. There are times when I get a little angry w...... View

The Tarot Cafe8The Tarot Café consists of some self-contained stories in which the main character, Pamela, reads tarot cards and advises her clients, as well as the main story unfolding Pamela’s tragic past and the subsequent events happening in the present.

The high contrast of the art (mostly black-and-white inking and gothic decorations) fit the story and adds the fantasy element to it. The characters are beautiful, androgynous, and appealing, albeit difficult to distinguished in terms of gender.
