5 Brilliant...MetaKnight | 14/08/2009 | See all MetaKnight's reviews (20)I watched the anime before reading this, so I knew what was going on, but even so this is brilliant. I cant think of any other word for it. To me it seemed like the characters, particularly Tuskune and Moka, were really well developed the further you read, and you learned more about their complex relationship, as well as Tsukune's relationships with other characters, like Kumuru.The way the story progresses is good, and it throws in a bit of humour now and then to keep you chuckling. The illustrations are excellent, whether its a talking scene or an action scene, it is superb.I spent about 2-3 hours reading this, thats mainly down to how the story really pulls you in and makes you care about the characters and what will happen next.This is now my favourite manga/anime series, well apart from Lucky Star, which is just awesome. But I will definetely be buying the next volumes of this great series.
