Some background information about my reviews; only the first issue has been reviewed from the English versions. Some of the manga may receive poorer story ratings in English than they would if I read them in the original Japanese. These ratings are taken only from my perspective and taste in manga--this means that I only read Shonen/Shoujo or Seinen manga that have more historical or modern day time lines. Keep in mind that I do not like big robots, space patrols, cyborgs or futuristic manga. I don't like the sappy, girly, love stories. I don't like T and A hentai or shonen-ai (gay men) manga either. Give me Samurais, hack and slash, horror, gothic themes, fantastic magic, or a historical perspective and I'm happy manga reader.
