Current Theme Design is Down

Posted by: Otaku Kinkin  /  Category: Updates

OOPsie!! Once again just when I, Otaku Kinkin, thinks everything is going to be fine and perfect, something bad coughs up. This time, the theme design that MangaReview has used is currently giving ME a few problems.

Until I can solve this whole fiasco or perhaps get a new theme, please bear with us on the current plain web design.

I am doing my very best to resolve all the technical issues. Sayonara!!

Otaku, We Have A Problem

Posted by: Otaku Kinkin  /  Category: Uncategorized

Oops.. Once again Otaku Kin Kin has troubles in paying her domain name, Zackire.com. So currently, until something good comes out, Otaku Kin Kin will be updating all her Ramblings of Zackire on Mangareview.info.

So that also means that I will have no good reason in not updating all the pictures of the reviewed mangas. Gah!! Can’t I run away from the graphic design? It takes too much time fiddling with those pictures.

Hmm….

Until then, we will try our very best to keep updating all our manga reviews for the pleasure of our readers!!!

Rate: 4/5

Kino Hime is a 15 years old girl who just started her first year in a high school for voice actors (Seiyuu) called Hiiragi Academy. She dreams of becoming the voice of the main character in one of the most popular series in Japan, “Magic Fighter Lovely Blazers”.

The academy is the number one school which allows students to make their voice acting debuts, and also includes more departments: sports, music, acting, and media communication.

Of course this Academy is full of celebrities, too. Two of Hime’s classmates are none other than the two rising idols of the group “Idol Unit Agua”.

But Hime’s dream is hard to fulfill. Her voice is not really suitable for a voice actress and her new classmate Kudou Senri doesn’t waste time in pointing that out. Will Hime prove everybody especially Senri what she is capable of despite the first appearance?

Author’s opinion: If you are looking for cute kid-like Manga to read THIS IS THE ONE!!

Rate: 5/5

Kusakabe Maron has lived alone for a long time, since she was young and her parents left to travel abroad for their jobs.

Her rent gets paid every month, and she always has money for food or whatever else she needs or wants, but her parents haven’t even sent a single letter to her in all the years they’ve been gone.

Even though right across the hall is Maron’s best friend, and she always puts on a brave face, Maron always dreads the empty apartment at night and the time of day when she stops and checks her mail box, which never has anything in it.

Then she meets Finn Fish, the tiny angel-in-training which tells her who she really is: Kaitou Jeanne, the reincarnation of Joan of Arc (known in the series as Jeanne d’Arc)! Now, as well as dealling with normal highschool and an empty mailbox, at night Maron must become Kaitou Jeanne, the amazing art thief who uses special divine tools given to her by the will of God to sneak into people’s homes and other places to “steal” beautiful objects, normaly paintings, which have been inhabited by demons who control the beautiful souls of the people who love the art.

These people become greedy and cruel, and will stop at nothing to save the art. And so Jeanne leaves a note card, designating the time she will arrive to steal the art.

The process used to seal the demon, however, also causes the art to disappear, and where paintings were a beautiful angel now fills the empty canvas.

However, the athorities cannot allow this to go on, and Maron’s best friend, who dreams of becoming a detective and is the daughtor of a police chief, will stop at nothing to capture Jeanne and comes up with a new trap every night.

Then the smooth-talking Chiaki moves in to the apartment next door to Maron, at the same time as Kaitou Sinbad appears and begins to seal demons as though he were in competition with Jeanne, and with his sidekick, another angel-in-training named Access Time, he is begining to thwart the police as well as Jeanne.

Maron might have bitten off more than she can chew now, because the greatest obstacles still lies ahead: Falling in love with her worst enemy next to the devil himself.

Ion Tsuburagi (粒 依音, Tsuburagi Ion?) is a friendly and cheerful high-school student who likes to eat. However, when she was young, she had learned to chant a jinx to make miracles occur.

Ion has a crush on a boy named Mikado Hōrai (宝来 帝, Hourai Mikado?), who’s interested in psychic powers, and has his own lab at school. When she finds out he is creating a club for psychic investigators, she plans to join the club and ends up becoming its president.

During one of Mikado’s experiments, she touches an object similar to one her late father made that she swallowed as a child and gains two psychic powers: telekinesis and levitation.

The student body president, Koki Shiraishi (白石 広貴, Shiraishi Kouki?), has feelings for Ion, though she has never returned his feelings, instead regularly avoiding him. He hates psychic powers and Mikado, because Mikado studies them, unaware of Ion’s powers. Even after Ion’s feelings for Mikado become obvious to him, Koki continues to pursue her.

Ai Minase (水瀬 藍, Minase Ai?), Mikado’s ex-girlfriend, transfers to their school to be with Mikado. Also pyschic, she can bend spoons and sense card types, though her powers can go out of control if she doesn’t concentrate.

Though she knows he only dated her because she was his test subject, she is initially jealous of his affections toward Ion. Eventually she realizes she doesn’t really like him and befriends Ion after Ion saves her from harm during another experiment.

As the series progresses, Mikado begins to return Ion’s feeling, though he is initially confused as to whether it is the same as with Ai and he just likes her because she is a test subject. Eventually, he realizes he does love her as a girl, not an experiment, after Ion appears to lose her powers.

At the end of the story, they are a couple and it is shown that Ion’s powers did return.
