Welcome to Manga Rants, a world dedicated solely to reviewing manga! Here you will find manga from most genres, since I shy away from nothing; consequently, you may find works ranging from shoujo to horror or even guro.

You can browse the reviewed manga:

shoujo | shounen | slice of life | smut | supernatural | yaoi
- by mangaka
- by status: complete (12) | ongoing (0)
- by type: oneshot (4) | series* (8)
- alphabetical list (all reviews)

* 3+ chapters

How do I rate manga?
Originality + creativity: 2 points - how often it was done, and how well it was done this time
Characters: 2 points - evolution, interaction etc.
Realism/believability: 2 points - does it make me roll my eyes or nod in agreement?
Flow: 1 point - disjointed or complete?
How much I enjoyed it: 3 points - because it's an opinion after all

Other notes
I am a fan of yaoi so I review yaoi titles as well. Don't worry - they're properly flagged and don't contain any explicit images or descriptions.
