The Devil Sings With an Angel's Voice

Ah, high school. Great place. If you weren't ducking the Jocks, you were trying to avoid being stung by the Queen Bees. If you weren't doing that, you were struggling hard as you could to not be lumped in with the nerds and the geeks. And heaven forbid you were seen as a loaner… Take a trip back to the social trials and tribulations with the review this time around, Akuma to Love Song.

Heaven Sent, Manga Review

Taking a break from the various convention related items still in the works, I've put to the proverbial pen and paper a review of one the manga I picked up over at Anime Central this year, that being Ben Dunn's 'Heaven Sent'.

Heaven Sent (Manga, 2005)

Overview

What happens when your guardian angel falls in love with you? Kyle Taylor is about to find out this and more, or at least he would if this story were to actually concentrate on that at all instead of this quasi religious war between Heaven and Hell that his involvement in is, at best, completely worthless and unnecessary. Indeed, with the way this story goes, scenes like this are nonexistent, but then so is any coherent story telling, as I'll elaborate below.

Franken Fran (Manga, 2007)

Overview


Who know stitches could be cute?

Paging Dr. Fran to medical ward 666... Paging Dr. Fran to medical ward 666... Your vic-, err, test subj-, err, patients are screaming. I mean, waiting. Got something that ails you? Feeling a little stiff? Don't worry, Fran's got just the solution for you... She'll have you patched up in no time flat, even if it means giving you the stitches right off her own back. Of course, such high quality medical care isn't free. It could cost you an arm and a leg – or maybe your just your sanity. If you're lucky.

Change 123 (Manga, 2005)

Overview


I... have nothing to say.

Motoko is a sweet girl – quiet, shy, and socially inept, but still sweet. She tries not to attract too much attention to herself, which is tough when you're a pretty little thing with glasses and a rack that'd qualify you for entry into the Dead or Alive tournament. On the other hand, I wouldn't worry about her too much if she did take part in that particular competition... You see, Motoko has not one, but three adoptive fathers, each one of which specializes in a particular form of combat, and each one of them put Motoko through their own, intensive form of training. Well, that's all well and good, but there's one tiny little problem... Motoko's mind took a three for one split, and she developed three separate personalities to deal with them! Thus begins Change 123...

Dance in the Vampire Bund Manga Review

Well, I've been threatening this one for awhile. And as such, here we go, a review of oddly, my current favorite manga, Dance in the Vampire Bund which is filled with all the bloody vampire goodness one could ever hope for. Oh sure, the girl looks about twelve, but I dare you to tell her she can't do whatever she damn well wants after you read the first chapter. C'mon, what are you? Chicken? Yeah, I would be too after what I saw her do that would be assassin of hers.

Dance in the Vampire Bund (Manga, 2006)

Overview

To all creatures of darkness, your salvation has arrived! Paper's please, yes yes...I see, they seem to be in order. What, you're still not sure what's all this about? How did you come here then? Oh, I see, terribly sorry about that, but I suppose we can't plan for everything. Let me explain. The dark sovereign, the ruler of all vampires, Mina Tepes, has constructed for us a sanctuary, just off the coast of Japan. An artificial island, fully sanctioned by the human authorities of that nation, where we need not hide or fear, where we can be who we are and live our lives as we wish under her watchful protection, as long as we obey her laws, of course. What did you think...she'd allow anarchy? Certainly not. She is in charge, and if you've got a problem with it, I'd suggest taking it up with her personally...just remember what she did to the last people to try that. Yes, it was with her bare hands, and I know she only looks twelve. Oh, that strapping young lad always hanging around her (or she's always hanging off of, depending on her mood)? That'd be Akira, her personal guardian...some even say her lover, though we all know she'd never risk that...at least, not yet anyway. She has several decades of growing left. Or would she risk it? Could be why there HAVE been so many attempts on her life recently. I mean, if you knew what that boy really was, that she'd do THAT with something like him well...I can only imagine how insulted some people might be. At least, those that are still alive after facing her wrath. So if you have a problem with her behavior, I'm sure she'd love to hear from you. We'll be sure to dust up your remains and deposit them in the outgoing trash the following morning...if she's done with you by then.
