Quick Review: Blood Sucker: the Legend of Zipangu / by Saki Okuse and Aki Shimizu

Blood Sucker: Legend of Zipangu, Volume 2 by Saki Okuse My rating: 2 of 5 stars At this point in the series the only thing saving it is the action sequences and art drawn by Aki Shimizu. Shimizu is a great artist, it's such a shame that only 1 of his series actually got a … Continue reading Quick Review: Blood Sucker: the Legend of Zipangu / by Saki Okuse and Aki Shimizu

Quick Review: Color of Rage by Kazuo Koike and Seisaku Kano

Color of Rage by Kazuo Koike My rating: 4 of 5 stars I read this one expecting it to be a thriller. It wasn't. But, it was a brilliant read and I can't wait to get a chance to pick this up again. This is about George, a Japanese man and King, an African man … Continue reading Quick Review: Color of Rage by Kazuo Koike and Seisaku Kano

Video Review: Complex Age, volume 1 / by Yui Sakuma

My thoughts on Complex Age, volume 1 by Yui Sakuma.

Manga Review: The Secret Sakura Shares / by Akira Hagio

The Secret Sakura Shares by Akira Hagio My rating: 3 of 5 stars The title begins quickly, and ends quickly. It's textbook shoujo scenarios and tropes, arranged neatly between two covers. The only thing missing was "the indirect kiss"/sharing a drink. Which oddly, made me a little sad. I like that scenario! Unfortunately, there is … Continue reading Manga Review: The Secret Sakura Shares / by Akira Hagio

Manga Review: The Qwaser of Stigmata / Hiroyuki Yoshino

The Qwaser Of Stigmata by Hiroyuki Yoshino My rating: 1 of 5 stars There's just so much going on in this comic, and unfortunately it's too much. Would this be resolved and ironed out in subsequent volumes? I'm not sure, but I'm also not interested in reading further. Plot-wise, I'm not entirely sure what's going … Continue reading Manga Review: The Qwaser of Stigmata / Hiroyuki Yoshino

Manga Review: Paradise Residence, vol. 1 / by Kosuke Fujishima

Paradise Residence Vol. 1 by Kosuke Fujishima My rating: 4 of 5 stars An a-typical seinen slice-of-life comedy about high school girls dorm residents. A-typical in that most of the jokes used in this book can be found in any comedy series about all-girls schools... But, they are all fun situations. You may find this … Continue reading Manga Review: Paradise Residence, vol. 1 / by Kosuke Fujishima
