+Anima is a lighthearted manga with 10 volumes by Mukai Natsume. It's set in a World where +Anima, people with animal characteristics, like batwings or fishtails, exist. However, because of their special power, +Anima are in the most part of time hated and feared, even if they aren't evil by nature. The manga tells about the boy Cooro, a +Anima with crow wings, and his adventures in the search for new friends and other people like him .

The characters are so simple and sweet, that even the 'bad' ones are loveable. Every one has his personal trait, and they relationship and interaction is really amusing. There are four main characters:

Cooro -
A simple minded boy who loves apples,. cheese, and traveling with his friends in search for adventures. He may seem innocent, but he can play good tricks to get what he want.

Husky -
A +Anima who has the power to breath and grow a fishtail underwater, looking like a beautiful mermaid. He's very moody and is always hitting Cooro. Despite looking like one, Husky says he hates girls.

Senri -
The most adult of the group, this bear +Anima has only 15-16 years, but is very quiet, making the 'silent type'. But when one's treatening anything he cares for, he'll be very angry.

Nana -
A childish bat +Anima. She likes 'girl's things', and her dream is to marry a prince charming some day. Nana's always fighting with Husky over anything.

Drawing Style
The style of the drawings is not detailed, yet beutiful. Every character is really cute, and there're some images you just want to go 'awwwwn' over them. The style of the clothes is really cool too, there're a lot of frills in girl's dresses, and nice suits to the guys!

It's not a manga everyone will like, but in my pesonal opinion is the simplicity that makes it special. It's cute and fun, and it's a good read if you're tired of over complicated plots and just want something to bright a little your day and cheer you up.

As +Anima doesn't have an actuall big plot, every chapter containing a little story/adventure, it looses a little credit in the story rating, but the feeling of the manga really adds up to it. If you like cute, heart warming histories, I'm sure you'll enjoy, as it's impossible not to crack a smile in every volume.

The art is clear, you can differentiate which is who and the details is very praiseable. this manga leave you with a feeling (i need to get more! next volume please!) without being dragging.
I think the plot is to find out each of their past and how they will use that to go foward to the future.
i love the art and Husky and Cooro. Cooro is the best characted in this story. i think.
