Black Butler #1 by Yana Toboso
Black Butler #1

nachoandmaddy, January 25, 2012

This series is far better in the manga than in the anime. It really was interesting to me, and I've always been a sucker for books taking place in the 1800's, as well as dark themes with loads of drama. In my mind this was a 5/5, but I decided against giving it so a high a rating because of one main thing. I feel as if I've read this before. It wasn't as original as other manga, and it was lacking in anything that really made me jump up with excitement. The character development is very good, however, which earned it such a high score from me. It's worth reading for certain.

Bleach #22 by Tite Kubo
Bleach #22

nachoandmaddy, January 25, 2012

Tite Kubo didn't start the manga off in a way that compelled me to keep reading. I truly became interested in the series after watching the anime version of Bleach, and then decided to continue reading. The series starts off in a way that doesn't keep you interested and comes across as plain, but as soon as the hallows arrive you will start to enjoy yourself. Even more important to the plot are the arrancars, Ulquiorra on the cover of volume 22, and the evil plot by a former ally of the soul society. Once this occured I grew attached to the characters and the series and have set out to buy every volume. I rated this series a 3/5 because it didn't grab my interest at first, and it took some dedication to start liking it. In my head, a 5/5 would have to be a series or a novel that got you hooked from the first page. Sadly, Bleach is not that, in my opinion.

Blue Exorcist #01 by Kato Kazue
Blue Exorcist #01

Ao No Exorcist (Blue Exorcist) starts off slow, but once you read far enough in it really starts up and gets you heated, no pun intended. Kato Zazue's ongoing series is, in my opinion, better as an anime, but the manga was good enough for me to buy volumes 1-2, and maybe volume 3 in the near future. It is good enough for me to cosplay as Amaimon though, and to get a 4/5 rating from me.

Pandora Hearts #3 by Jun Mochizuki
Pandora Hearts #3

nachoandmaddy, January 25, 2012

The series Pandora Hearts by Jun Mochizuki is thrilling. Full of suspense, action, and drama it leaves the reader hungry for more. Volume 3 in particular reveals quite a bit about the Gilbert Nightray and Xerxes Break, and it truly made me want to read more. Normally I wouldn't place a hold on books at the library, but I simply had to put a hold on volumes 4-8 as soon as I finished reading this. Equally as good as the anime, I would highly reccommend reading Pandora Hearts. It is by far my favorite manga of 2011.
