Pretty art, but the writing is still bad.

Disclaimer: I didn't like the novels.

The art is really pretty, although most of the faces look the same, and in the meadow scene, Edward looks kind of like a zombie had a baby with a disco ball. Which isn't too far off the mark, I guess.

The writing is the same as it was in the novels. Not to my taste, but if you liked them, you'll like this.

The typeface and the placement of the speech/thought bubbles is really awkward. Like... covering up parts of people's faces for no reason awkward.

It gets a 3 because the art is good.

The Rating, the Irony

There are more 1-voters than the people who have added the manga to their reading and completed lists combined. This should give you an idea of how 'objective' the people here are; so ironic. At least we know Baka-Updates is not bombarded with Twilight fans, but quite the opposite instead (i.e., haters). The situation here is another proof that only those who add a title to their list should be allowed to rate it, like on MyAnimeList.

However, I do not give a shit about this manga. What annoys me are idiots spamming manga with loli (or 'pseudo-loli') content just because they 'touch their sensibilities.' You fags need to spout your crap at a church or something.

Anyways, because of such fools, I have stopped looking at the ratings of series a long time ago. Read the description and genres, then decide whether to give something a shot yourself. It comes down to that.

It's everywhere, and now on this wonderful website. Why? This adaptation is even worse and even more plotless than the actual book. And why is it on this manga site? It isn't worthy. Oh well, I guess we'll be getting Fifty Shades of Grey manga next. At least the sex will keep me entertained...

I read the 1st volume in Barnes&Noble, thinking, "Hey, I might like it and might try to read the novel." It was good, but up to the part where Edward started glittering. I laughed out loud, put that book back in the shelf, and went on my merry way home.

Sorry, but this manga isn't for me. The artwork is beautiful, but it pains me that it hooked with some poor-written story. It's poor in a sense that the story was oozing out "Here's this pretty boy and I'm going to love him until he becomes un-emo." Sorry, doesn't sound like a good storyplot for me. And I do not have the patience to continue reading further just to wait for some good story to pop-out. If it doesn't grab my attention in the beginning, most likely I'll just drop it.

Well, you can read and judge it for yourself.

i've read the books...watched the movies...aaand read the manga and i still don't like twilight... it has no morals... it's about a manly girl, a sparcaly vampire, a hot were wolf... the whole moral of the story is how inportant it is to have a boyfriend... i can honestly day it wasn't worth my time

Ignore the bad ratings. In case you are unaware, the majority if not all of those negative ratings come from people who haven't even taken a look at the story, much less read it. They gave it negative ratings because they wanted to join the "Hate on Twilight" bandwagon, not because they have valid reasons for their rating.

Stop rating a 1 for the book - the art doesn't deserve that!

It's obvious that this manga was rated so low simply because it is Twilight. Guess what, people? No one cares that you don't like it, so grow up and give the artist a fair chance! I read Twilight, New Moon, and couldn't finish Eclipse, and I'll say straight out that I didn't like them because, as a creative writing major, I didn't find anything particularly artistic or literary about them. When I saw that there was a manga, I decided to flip through it for the sake of seeing the art. Kim Young's style isn't my usual style, but it is lovely and refined in its own way. From what I read of it, it seems to be a pretty faithful adaptation of the novel. Therefore, I don't see why it has so many negative votes. This isn't the a page for critiquing the novels, it's a page for critiquing the adaptation!

As the title says, awful. Does the terror ever stop?
The Twilight books were alright, nothing to sneeze at, but also nothing to go into fangirl mode.
So with that being said, this graphic novel would be even less than that.
Reminds me of the High School Musical manga...lolwut...
And to think there's even a dictionary describing the words in all the books...God help us.

I can agree with the dude below tho, u generally don't rate down a series without trying it.... then again I don't really care if a manga about tinkerbell disguised as a vampire is rated well... so overall I'm not sure if I'm happy or sad this has been rated.... u know what.... keep going..... remembering the pain of being dragged to see this retardation in theatre by my gf has made up my mind SPAMMING 1 FTW!!!!!

I think its been blown way too out of proportion for an 'okay' book. For them to trample into manga might be pressing it too far...and I saw this after they have made cardboard standups and other stupid little dolls . _ .
