Recent MangaLife reviews

July 17, 2009 at 9:47 am (reviews - links)

I’ve had four manga reviews up at MangaLife recently, and it’s back to being all VIZ, all the time. This selection includes the final volume of Boys Over Flowers (one of THE classic shoujo titles), my first look at Mixed Vegetables, and a new volume of Honey and Clover, which I love more and more as the series continues. (Since I’d seen the anime before picking up the manga, the love was already pretty solid.) And then there’s Honey Hunt, from the author of Hot Gimmick. If they send me enough volumes of Hunt to review, maybe I’ll manage to write a review that doesn’t include references to the trauma of Hot Gimmick. But maybe not.

Boys Over Flowers (Hana Yori Dango) vol. 36 [series finale] (B+)
Honey and Clover vol. 6 (A)
Honey Hunt vol. 2 (B)
Mixed Vegetables vol. 4 (B)
