Mirai no Football is a short 1 volume 5 chapter manga about a football(soccer) player who is thrown into the past. If the short length already doesn’t interest you, it’s safe to say you won’t be missing much. If the short summary doesn’t interest you, this probably isn’t for you. If, however, you want to know at a glance whether you want to read this short and non-time consuming manga, come inside. Continue Reading Mirai no Football…

Kenji is a 21 volume manga about martial arts, growing up and taking a journey. I started reading this manga a while ago but it wasn’t complete then. It finally finished recently and I got back into Kenji very easily. Kenji is an addicting adventure romp with enough action to ensnare your interest from beginning to end. Continue Reading Kenji…

Bio-Meat: Nectar maybe a bit shounen but it matures as a story. BM is 12 volumes long. Definitely worth a try because of the addictive story and likeable characters. There’s alot of typical shounen fare but that’s something I enjoy.

Saijou no Meii is complete at 11 volumes but isn’t completely scanlated yet, which is why I consider it to be “ongoing”. This is more a recommendation than a review but this should be considered the review for Saijou until it’s actually complete and I can give a full review.
I decided to recommend Saijou no Meii next because it’s also a medical “drama” but it’s completely and utterly different from Team Medical Dragon. They’re both good in their own way but Saijou no Meii is much more about comedy and never takes itself seriously.

Today I’m starting something new…sort of. This isn’t really a review, more of an open recommendation to an ongoing manga.
Team Medical Dragon is superb. If you like serious medical dramas, you’re going to love Team Medical Dragon, guaranteed. Heck, even if you’re not a fan of medical dramas, after reading this there’s a good chance you’ll be one of the converted. Before reading this, I never paid much attention to medical manga but after getting a dose of this manga a year or two ago, suddenly I was on the hunt for medical manga.

Vampire Juujikai is all about the story. The art is shoujo-esque but not bad by any means. I’m not a huge fan of shoujo art styles but Juujikai’s art style is tolerable. This manga isn’t about the violence or the action, it’s all about the amazing story and the great characters. Those should be your reasons for reading Vampire Juujikai.

First of all, I’d like to point out that if you’ve ever tried any other work by Anzai Nobuyuki, none of them even begin to compare with Flame of Recca. His other works include Mar, Mar Omega and Mixim 11. Mar was alright, haven’t tried Mar Omega and Mixim 11 is his latest work but also his worst. I couldn’t even read more than a couple chapters of Mixim, he tries to appeal to a younger audience while making mature type perverted humor. It simply didn’t work and came across as really weird and uninteresting. But this isn’t a review about Mixim 11 so I’ll end that rant here.
Flame of Recca is Anzai’s earlier work but it’s also his best, in my opinion. Recca is a manga that isn’t afraid to be dark. There are moments where you realize how twisted and dark it’s become and how well it fits into the story, even with the silly moments. Recca is a 33 volume manga so it’s not a quick read but you may be amazed at how quickly you can get through it.

SWOT is a three volume manga with only 20 chapters. There’s also a oneshot but it’s basically the same thing. SWOT is a typical Shounen type manga. A story that barely makes sense, gratuitous amount of fight scenes with wall shattering “martial arts”. Also, buxom girls that are later added to try and garner attention…the mangaka drew some great girls but couldn’t save his manga. It looks to have been canceled early, the story kept hinting at a long series but ultimately rushed to an ending.

Samidare(aka Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer) is a 10 volume manga which I feel needs more visibility. Samidare is about a guy who wakes up to find a lizard in his room. This lizard proceeds to speak. Uttering such nonsense as, “Save the world” “Find the princess” and “I’m a lizard knight”. This guy’s name is Yuuhi and he’s totally unfazed by the lizard that no one but he can see. Now, keep in mind that this is only the very beginning and things really develop as you read. Samidare is hopelessly addicting and honestly epic in scope and breadth.
