Apollo's Song (manga) Good
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 (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.
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.
Cross Game (manga) Very good
Eyeshield 21 (manga) Masterpiece
Fullmetal Alchemist (manga) Masterpiece
Hellsing (manga) Very good
Jaco the Galactic Patrolman (manga) Very good
Master Keaton (manga) Good
Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring (manga) Excellent
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.
Nijigahara Holograph (manga) Very good
Ode to Kirihito (manga) Very good
Pluto (manga) Very good
Rosario + Vampire (manga) Weak
Rurouni Kenshin (manga) Very good Read 9 volumes.
Slam Dunk (manga) Masterpiece Read 3 volumes.
Solanin (manga) Very good
Tekkonkinkreet (manga) Excellent
Tropic of the Sea (manga) Decent
Tsubasa, RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE (manga) Weak
xxxHOLiC (manga) Not really good Read 14 volumes.

Attack on Titan: Junior High (manga) Weak
Black Cat (manga by K. Yabuki) Weak Read 2 volumes.
D.Gray-man (manga) Weak Read 10 volumes.
Death Note (manga) Decent Review #1 Date: 3 March 2009. Meh, I read a bit of this when I really into the Death Note anime, but just like I got tired and disenchanted with the anime, so too did I get disenchanted with this one. Read 1 volume (vol. 5) and bits of various chapters.
Dragon Ball (manga) Very good Review #2 Date: 3 March 2009. The series is a lot more fun without the bad pacing that's so prevalent in the anime series. I stopped at the end of the Dragon Ball seeing as how Viz did too many edits to Z. Read 16 volumes.
Fairy Tail (manga) Not really good Read 6 volumes.
K-ON! (manga) Not really good
Kingdom Hearts (manga) Not really good Review #3 Date: 3 March 2009. This one is rather boring, even for a big Kingdom Hearts fan like me. While it'll certainly appeal to the younger fan base of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, the older crowd is much better off sticking with the games. Read 1 volume.
Kyo Kara Maoh! (manga) Not really good Review #5 Date: 13 March 2009. I read the first volume of this one from my library and it made me chuckle a few times, but it feel flat for me overall. Even though it's a parody, it tried to get serious toward the end and it just seemed like I've read this story before. Meh.
Monster (manga) Very good Read 7 volumes.
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (manga) So-so Review #7 Date: 19 June 2009. Man, I just couldn't get into this one. Miyazaki touches on the exact same points he makes in the movie, but drags/draws it out on a much bigger scope in the Nausicaa world. So with that in mind, I just couldn't be bothered to fight through the art style, which completely bogs itself down in detail, to care for seeing the same thing twice. NOTE: Read 2 volumes.
NORA: The Last Chronicle of Devildom (manga) Not really good Review #4 Date: 3 March 2009. I only read the one chapter preview in Shonen Jump. It seems like they are a lot better Shonen manga to spend my time on.
Shaman King (manga) So-so Read 14 volumes.
Yu-Gi-Oh! (manga) Not really good Read 4 volumes. First part of the series is Jojo's Bizarre Adventure for kids. I'm not kidding.
