A somewhat scary pile of review links

September 1, 2008 at 11:19 pm (reviews - links)

(Well, they’re mostly scary to me because I don’t post about much else here, so now I get to assemble links and call it a post. ^^) From the last…month or so, we have (all from VIZ unless otherwise noted):
A.I. Revolution vol. 1-3 (B, Go!Comi)
B.O.D.Y. vol. 2 (C+)
Haruka – Beyond the Stream of Time vol. 2 (C+)
Honey and Clover vol. 3 (A-)
Kaze Hikaru vol. 10 (B)
Monkey High! vol. 3 (B+)
NANA vol. 11-12 (A+)
Red River vol. 22 (B+)
Short-Tempered Melancholic (B-)
Suppli vol. 3 (A-, TOKYOPOP)
Tail of the Moon vol. 12 (B-)

And worthy of a special note, we have vol. 1-3 of Demon Prince, Children of Gaia, an OEL published by Dimensional Manga. It’s…interesting. I gave it an F, but it gets special points for taking itself very seriously indeed. You can see just how seriously at the company website. Alas, the creator seems to genuinely want to share some sort of enlightenment with the world–“alas”, because it doesn’t work very well, and I don’t have the heart to snark outright at something that earnest.
