Finding Yuki (Love Dolls Book 1)
Like a lot of manga, you're thrown into the story quickly I think this series would've been superb as a novel series, where they could take more time to develop the characters and back-story a bit more Mar 15, Daniel rated it really liked it. This review contains no spoilers. The first volume will be really confusing and seem random. Later volumes still jump around a bit, but not nearly as much. Plot: I liked it. There are a few really big events that are built up by lots of smaller events that help keep you engaged.
The blend of science fiction and alternate-universe fiction is very well executed and unique! I think the religion in it nuns, gods, the church, etc. It's a nice adventure that also focuses on the relationships characters have with each other without being too cheesy.
Characters: I love them. They are all unique and you will soon grow attached to them, including the antagonists. They're well-developed, funny I'd say they're the best-or one of the best-parts of the manga. Art: Not the best I've seen, but still good. The panels are confusing sometimes. Also, the battle scenes are short and to the point, which is a refreshing change but can also be confusing.
Note about the ANIME: I have to admit I like the anime better because it's much less confusing and you get to know the characters better. It is slower paced and as thus some people could find it a bit boring, and the art style is a bit different. Unfortunately, the anime only goes up until chapter 25 of the manga.

When the publisher finally said yes, I almost passed out in the meeting. Shortly after we started production, we found out it was going to be an anime series, which only made licensing it all the sweeter for us.
We went all the way for this series, from a fifty-foot banner at Anime Expo to a fancy. And then the economy tanked.
It was the little engine that could even while book I spent two years pursuing this one license, I wanted it that much. It was the little engine that could even while bookstore chains returned books to publishers en masse and banks stopped giving out loans to small businesses and the whole publishing industry fell down the stairs.
I kept working on it right up until it was time for me to say goodbye to my job at Go! It's a wonderful series, and I'll always love it, even if I never do get to see the end of it in English form. Oct 08, Forthright. A boy and his best friend prepare for their final exam at military school, which goes horribly wrong. Teito flees the city, finding sanctuary with three highly unusual bishops at a church in a neighboring district. Death gods and battle slaves. Mermaids and suppressed memories.
Grand schemes and war ships. Politics and possession. I adored the anime and wanted to find out what came next for the cast. The series is complete in 17 volumes, but the anime only covers the first 4. Aug 11, KillerMO rated it liked it. My first manga. I was so excited to read one of these mini japanese culture and searched for quite a small manga series. I like the shiny covers and the quality of the ink used. It's really hard to blurry it, unleast you have wet hands and press hard on it. The volume was medium number of pages but the action is slow.
Maybe I'm wrong 'cause this is my first manga read and I'm not really a big fan yet. There is lit My first manga. There is little action in the first volume and where it is it's barely noticeable. I'm not complaining about the black on white colour, I actually can't determine the characters and how they are attacking well. Also, if i'm not wrong this is the first illustrator project so hope that he'll changed things in newer volumes. I only recommend the manga for the anime viewers who want the "paperback edition of it".

For starters I'll advise you to take a newer volume. In the first there isn't much plot and facts. The only think I love is the teenagers comic dialogues. Dec 05, Rimah rated it it was amazing.
Yuki & Zero
I absolutely adore this story, it is incredible, imaginative, beautiful and just overly awesome! Teito is a great main character, his mysterious past and future, his great personality and strange! The love he three ghosts you meet in the beginning and love them all? Ayanami is freakng awesome, sexy and smart! Everything is awesome and I wait every month for a new chapter, no matter how short, to arrive so that I can enjoy every moment in his fantastic adventure manga experience.
Jan 14, Dorcas rated it really liked it. Very interesting. There's action and betrayal, tested friendships and an interesting mythology created here. Teito Klein was a slave boy bought into the army and has been attending the academy for the imperial army.
After he passes the final exams here overhears a conversation that awakens dark memories and startling realizations. May 11, Malvika rated it it was amazing Shelves: , manga , fantasy , ghosts , action , josei , adventure. I first watched the anime in and I have been in love with the ghost universe since then. So my review will probably be biased. Also I am going to review the entire manga at once, because I don't really think I can justify this manga by reviewing separate volumes.
The world is brilliantly portrayed. It is one of the few mangas with a well detailed world. There is history, there are religion and customs, there is magic no I first watched the anime in and I have been in love with the ghost universe since then. There is history, there are religion and customs, there is magic not the kind where you shoot out brilliant lights or control elements, but it still counts.
I think it's one of the few mangas where the artist has actually concentrated on world building which in my opinion is very important 2.

The portrayal of characters: one of the strongest point in this manga is the portrayal of different characters. They aren't "the best. He is the owner quite by chance. And later That'll be a big spoiler lol 3. The background of the characters: One of the things I genuinely enjoy in a character is their history. What they've been through, why they act the way they do, etc.
Yuki Amemiya has actually taken pains to concentrate on the background of her characters which ofc makes them quite realistic 4. He might be your "typical" villian but his attitude towards the black hawks and others he comes in contact with is both realistic and cool. Also, he is so dashing. This manga has a well sketched plot. It isn't like fairy tail which is still being written with no idea where it is going.
It has a beginning, it has an end. And then it stops. No fan service, etc which is there is almost all the mangas not that I mind them but frankly, there's a limit to everything and it gets sort of boring after a time The story does get boring not in the content but the style of writing in the middle of the series.
And it's easy to get confused because the facts aren't revealed very simply as one might expect but rather in bits. Another issue that I have is with the black and white sketches itself. I mean I love them but they can be difficult to distinguish at times, especially if it's a fight scene. I'd highly recommend this one because it is a fresh change from the usual shonen-shoujo and fantasy genre.

Snubbed for his background and prettiness, he has only one friend, the cheerful and loyal Mikage, until he attracts the predatory attention of the sinister Chief Ayanami, a powerful officer with an elite team of his own within Barsburg military, who plays a dark part in a past Teito had almost forgotten. The three bishops were all unique and compelling characters; Frau is a loveable punk with a sexy smirk, more than capable of throwing Teito over his shoulder which he does a lot , yet revealing intriguing secrets about his powers and the scythe he wields. Castor provides a dramatic contrast to him with his spectacles, easy going smile, along with the dolls and puppets he surrounds himself with.
Apart from the first two bishops is the third, Labrador, a bishounen beauty who surrounds himself with flowers and offers up enigmatic riddles. The villain, Ayanami is larger than life and magnificently menacing, yet shows hints of a softer side with his aides, never ceasing to be frightening or any less a foe to Teito.
The characters play a part in a developing mystery and mythology in which we slowly discover who and what they are along with Teito, weaving itself in with his flight, exile, and the menace drawing closer to him. For all of these things. I give this manga four stars.
May 20, Alex rated it it was amazing Shelves: manga. The moment I started reading through this manga, I started foreshadowing every possibility and every angle. However, my mind started shutting down, because of all the brain work and it started to make me hate reading the manga. So I started reading it without over-analyzing too much of the details, haha. It was a great manga overall. If anything, I was greatly displeased with the first volume which I believe is chapter When I first read it, I thought I was reading a one shot, because of th The moment I started reading through this manga, I started foreshadowing every possibility and every angle.
When I first read it, I thought I was reading a one shot, because of the hurried pace of the beginning chapter. I felt everything was bit rushed and it was a serious turn off. The only reason why I pulled through, was because of the manga's cover. I am so serious. I am happy I did pull through though, because it got way better and I enjoyed it to the very end.
I mean a couple of times, I was so sure I would see "boys love". If the authors actually included some illicit graphics, it could have easily turned into yaoi which would have been a major plus. Anyways, this is one of those mangas, where I would actually read it a few times over, because I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Honestly, this is the first graphic novel I've properly read so I don't have anything to compare it to.
So this review may not be that helpful, and I'm just going to keep it quite short. I'm not going to lie, I found this pretty confusing. It was a bit all over the place - but I've heard it gets better. It starts at the military academy with Teito Klein and Mikage, who are best friends. But then Teito's repressed memories are jogged when he overhears a secret conversation, forcing him to flee the Honestly, this is the first graphic novel I've properly read so I don't have anything to compare it to. But then Teito's repressed memories are jogged when he overhears a secret conversation, forcing him to flee the district.
From there, he finds himself in a strange church. The bishops there begin to help him understand the war between two empires, the legend of seven ghosts, and the battle between good and evil. The art in this is fantastic! Sometimes it seems a little busy and hard to follow, but maybe that's just because I'm new to it. The dialogue is great - the jokes and everything really make this a good novel. And the premise is good, too - I intend to read on and hopefully make sense of it all!
I did like it, but I also got lost a fair bit. It was a lot better toward to end, with Mikage's surprise appearance and all, but I think I can only give this 3 stars. Dec 15, Tasha Birckhead rated it really liked it. The was most enjoyable! I love the amount of action and story line.
At time the action scenes where a little unclear but the art style is nice. This is for the die hard action fans who love a character that has a reason to seek revenge sprinkled with some paranormal. If you like Seraph of the End then this is right up your alley. We meet Teito and ex-slave and military cadet full of potential who finds out some deva The was most enjoyable!
