|Cowboy Bebop (manga)||Weak||Review #9 Date: 2 August 2009. While not as bad as Shooting Star, this isn't much of an improvement. It has some of the worst panel composition I've ever seen.|
|Cowa! (manga)||Decent||Review #8 Date: 2 August 2009. Nice read for the young'ins. Likable main characters and a story that doesn't wear out its welcome.|
|Cowboy Bebop Shooting Star (manga)||Bad||Review #6 Date: 10 April 2009. Not a good way to start off my Seen All section. I'm not a huge fan of Bebop aside from the music, but even so, it can do a lot better than whatever was trying to be accomplished here.|
|Neon Genesis Evangelion: Angelic Days (manga)||Weak||Review #10 Date: 2 August 2009. I admit that after watching the alternate reality bit in ep. 26 of the TV series I wanted to see some more of that world, but this makes me take it back. It does have that "so bad it's good" vibe, like a bad soap opera, so it might be worth a read.|
|Rurouni Kenshin (manga)||Very good||Read 9 volumes.|
|Slam Dunk (manga)||Masterpiece||Read 3 volumes.|
|xxxHOLiC (manga)||Not really good||Read 14 volumes.|
|Fullmetal Alchemist (manga)||Masterpiece|
|Hellsing (manga)||Very good|
|Apollo's Song (manga)||Good|
|Cross Game (manga)||Very good|
|Eyeshield 21 (manga)||Masterpiece|
|Jaco the Galactic Patrolman (manga)||Very good|
|Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring (manga)||Excellent|
|Nijigahara Holograph (manga)||Very good|
|Ode to Kirihito (manga)||Very good|
|Pluto (manga)||Very good|
|Rosario + Vampire (manga)||Weak|
|Solanin (manga)||Very good|
|Tsubasa, RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE (manga by CLAMP)||Weak|
