Sayonara, Football Vol 1 Review

So, this wasn't quite what I thought it was going to be. The description on the back of the manga describes the story of Sayonara, Football as being about two girls, who were on rival soccer teams in middle school, but end up on the same team in high school and need to learn how...

Toritan: Birds of a Feather Vol 1 Review

I think this manga might be taking the term "bird-lover" a little too literally! By Kotetsuko Yamamoto, Toritan: Birds of a Feather is a boys love manga with a supernatural twist and a rather unique love triangle. Synopsis: Inusaki is a detective who mostly winds up doing odd jobs around his sleepy neighbourhood, like walking... Continue Reading →

Fiancée of the Wizard Vol 1 Review

I’m really enjoying all of these isekai manga series staring women that we've been getting lately!

Synopsis: Shiratori, Washio and... Continue Reading →

His more famous works include the likes of Astro Boy, Princess Knight, Pheonix and Black... Continue Reading →

Beastars Vol 7 Review

Oh my god! Did this manga actually remember that it has a murder-mystery subplot? As with my reviews of the earlier volumes in the Beastars series, this review will contain some spoilers for events that occurred in the previous volumes, so I suggest getting caught up on the series before reading this. Synopsis: Things feel... Continue Reading →

Failed Princesses Vol 1 Review

A classic tale of opposites attract, Failed Princesses, by Ajiichi, is a yuri manga about a girl who’s dedicated herself to being an ideal princess and the plain girl who both resents and admires her. Synopsis: Nanaki is obsessed with her appearance, to the point that she always needs to be the cutest person around... Continue Reading →
