Manga Review: Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Adventure by Shigekatsu Ihara

Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl Adventure!, Vol. 1Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl Adventure!, Vol. 1

by Shigekatsu Ihara

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

No previous knowledge of Pokémon or the Pokémon world is needed to enjoy this energetic new epic in the growing Pokémon dynasty. A story about a naive new Pokémon trainer and his companion on a quest to meet the god-like Pokémon Dialga.

How Shigekatsu Ihara has created a new Pokémon adventure and kept it fresh and interesting is a mystery. The Pokémon are cute, the bad guys are hopeless, the hero is energetic; and there is some interesting back history on an unusual candidate. Geared for a younger audience. Worth some applause.
