|Kare Kano (manga)||Good||Read some of the first volumes, then saw the anime. I'm done with this series.|
|GTO: The Early Years (manga)||Decent||Chronologically, it goes "Bad Company" -> "Shonan Junai Gumi" -> "GTO". Aurthor wrote them in this order: "Shonan Junai Gumi" -> "Bad Company" -> "GTO."

|You're Under Arrest (manga)||Decent|
|Battle Angel Alita (manga)||Only saw the anime (that suppose to have only covered 2 volumes?) Bought the last volume, Vol 9, just to see how it ends.|
