Manga Review: Kujibiki Unbalance by Shimoku Kio

Kujibiki Unbalance 1 (Kujibiki Unbalance, #1)Kujibiki Unbalance 1

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kujibiki Unbalance is the story written within the story Genshiken. If you aren’t familiar with Genshiken, let me explain: Genshiken is a story about a college otaku club with a mixed group of interests (hentai, gaming, cosplay, doujinshi…). However, their most unifying source of conversation and interest is the new anime Kujibiki Unbalance.

That being said however, you do not need to understand or even read Genshiken to enjoy this manga. Although, I do think it is a fun read, regardless of why it was written. The art is solid, the pacing is satisfying and the story is actually quite strong considering the material. Actually, I think the the manga uses a much stronger approach than the anime.

I do recommend this story, but if you don’t care for ‘fan service’ you might want to avoid this one.
