Now I wouldn't say that this is the best piece in the world, but damn is it one of my favorites. It's slow-paced, but not too slow. Only about 30% of this manga is fighting (if you can even call it that), which is unusual for a shounen. Honestly, this series is only shounen for the first part of the series, then it shifts into more of a seinen with shounen undertones.

This series really develops the characters through the story. The main character goes through some very notable changes. I mentioned earlier how this series shifts from shounen to more of a seinen; this shift is brought about actually by the changes in personality of the main character. I find it interesting how in the beginning of the series, the MC is super self-conscious and acts like a total shounen MC. But as the story progresses, MC slowly starts to disassociate with the world around him, turning him into more of a seinen character. It'll make sense when you read the story, I promise.

The main reason I love this series is because of the ART. I kid you not; I have paused during every single chapter to admire just how gorgeous the art is. Each expression is so clear and variant - you never see quite the same expression more than once. But man, the art is fantastic, and if this series is ever made into an anime, we have some GORGEOUS scenes to look forward to.

Basically, this series is a very fun read if you just want a good supernatural drama. I have enjoyed the hell out of it and am rereading it for the third time.

You really cannot talk about this for very long without spoiling it utterly, but I tried in a long review I wrote for it. Birdmen is strongly unique for a lot of reasons, the most major of which I honestly can't discuss. I usually see people saying "just read it" and yeah, just read it. My review tries to explain why you should bother at all rather than just giving a vague line about it, but this is definitely something that you shouldn't look into too deeply before starting. There's a lot to it that's not exactly "surprising", but instead it's like there's lots and lots of new information regularly given out. It's a special series for sure and it seriously deserves more recognition.

This manga starts slow, but it has gradually been gaining momentum now that the characters are all introduced. It's an extremely well written story with crisp art. Definitely recommend to anyone who like more serious, character driven stories similar to Hoshi no Samidare

I'm a huge fan of the manga-ka's prior works and this is her newest series with great art. MC is a fairly typical angsty teen (yeah, I know) but I'm glad the story didn't go in-dept with his self-defeating thoughts which is nice. The cast looks to be OK and although there's many characters introduced I can tell them apart and they have different personalities.

I find the mysterious student to be overdone trope but somehow it works for now. MC is obviously not a happy person but he doesn't seem to be dislikable (?) and I can predict him improving w/his self-esteem problems later on. Great use of space for 2-page scenes and backgrounds are drawn w/clean lineart.

I suppose none of this sounds very original or creative but the manga itself is a interesting take on young boy gains special skill which changes life.

I like the start, and the story's going along in a nice flow, not too slow nor too fast. There's also enough things to keep you excited and anticipate the next chapter (if not excited). The atmosphere's nice too, I especially like the funny moments. I can't wait to see how the characters would improve especially the MC, he's quite the negative one, he think things through too much which is good and all (I actually find it funny at times)

Anyway, I'm not really good with reviewing anything also this is subject to change. I just say what I want (Opinion's opinion)

I'm going to wait for more chapters and see if it would be worth buying and adding to my collection smile
I hate to buy a volume only to not complete it because it became absolute shit in the end.

I didn't find the main protagonist interesting at first but now he's starting to grow on me after reading the later chapters. Similar to Kekkaishi, the humor is great and makes the story more unconventional. However, the story seems to be slower than Kekkaishi. I skimmed through the chinese raws and found that the action picks up around ch12.
