the anime im reviewing today is the Get Backers.
PLOT: Get Backers is about a duo who steal back stolen posetions and returns them to their client.
CHARACTERS: the 2 main characters are Bon and Genji. Bon can hypnotize his aponents with his eyes and he has an attack called "snack bite" were Bon uses his hand to break his aponents skull, Bon is one of the strongest characters in the anime. while Genji has electrical powers, however Genji can't use his full electrical powers outside of the city he was born (the Limitless Fortress). Genji is so powerful that he's known as the lightning emperor in the Limitless Fortress.
INTERESTING DETAIL: each character has their own fighting style/powers (as seen in animes like one piece or Ranma 1/2)
MOST INTERESTING ASPECT: the anime refrenses that when Bon and Genji first met they fought each other at the Limitless Fortress however throughout the anime series it is unclear who won the fight and it just makes u want to go and buy all of the volumes of the manga to find out who won.
FINAL THOUGHTS: i feel this anime is a must watch for action and comedy lovers.

Since i'm new im gonna put out some manga I been reading. For fun I will do a weekly review of new manga released on mangafox for everyone. Also I like to thank Bigfisk for a format to use for the reviews. Please comment so i know how to make this better.

1. Ever 17

Plot: The underwater theme park, LeMU. Takeshi Kuranari, one of the park guests, is suddenly involved in a freak accident. And he finds himself stuck in LeMU with a number of other survivors. Because of the system's failure, the water pressure will slowly crush the facility. The time limit till implosion is 170 hours and 17 minutes.

Characters:
Takeshi Kuranari (A university student separated from his friends)
Kid (An amnesiac youth stuck in LeMU. He remembers nothing of his past or why he is even at LeMU)
You Tanaka (You is a part-time employee at LeMU, trying to get closer to her father - who disappeared working at LeMU when she was only a year old)
Tsugumi Komachi (Little is know about here at the time)
Sora Akanegasaki (The only full-time staff member of LeMU to be stranded, Sora is a professional computer engineer, as well as the main AI)
Sara Matsunaga (Sara is a second year student at Kyumeikan Girl's High School)
Coco Yagami (An innocent, happy-go-lucky girl stranded on LeMU)

Interesting Details: It is based off a visual novel form 2002.

Final Thoughts: With only 2 chapters released so far it show to be a good manga. Hand full of people stuck in a under water theme park with no escape but to try and go up. It's still to early to tell how it will end up, but if you like Eden no Ori you will enjoy this.

2. Btooom

Plot: Group of people that are stuck on a island and need to kill others to get off.

Characters:
Ryuta Sakamoto (22 year old that lives with his mom playing games all day)
Spur Qing (51 Years old man that's a real estate management)
Himiko (High school girl that doesn't say her name yet)

Interesting Details: It's alot like battle royal, but you need to kill 7 to get off.

Final Thoughts: I love it. Like i said before it's like battle royal and it is has good as it. It should be a top 20 manga of 2011.

3. Mangaka-san To Assistant-san To

Plot: Tells the everday life of a manga artist and co-workers

Characters:
Aito Yuuki (He is the author of Haji Cafe that's published at Gongon. He is not ashamed to be perverted or saying panties in front of anyone)
Ashisu Sahoto (She is the assistant that Aito always trys to get with)
Otosuna Mihari (AA cup editor who is very strong when she snaps when Aito talks about her flat chest. She also went to high school with him and has secret fellings for him)
Fuwa Rinna (Big fan of Aito and pretty much everyone is jealous of her figure. She is also a air-head)
Kuroi Sena (She is a artist who only works when paided good. Very conscious of her appearance and don't treat her like a kid since she looks 10)

Interesting Details: Really is none. It's just random.

Final Thoughts: It is a ok manga that just passes the time with random events.

4. Minamoto-kun Monogatari

Plot: Minamoto-kun has a face pretty enough to make people think he's a girl. Because of his face, he was bullied by the girls in middle school who were jealous of his face. He developed a fear of women due to the trauma and he ended up attending a high school for boys. Just as he enters college and makes a promise to himself to overcome the trauma of his past, his father remarries and asks him to move out of the house. His father arranges him to live with his aunt for the time being. She is an extremely beautiful woman who is also a non-tenured professor at his college. When he arrives at her apartment, she shows him her breasts and tells him that he will be her "guinea pig" in her reverse Hikari Genji project.


Characters:
Kaoruko Fujiwara (The aunt that is turning Terumi into a man that can get any woman)
Terumi Minamoto (Developed a fear of women due to the trauma. Forced to be in his aunts project to get laided by many woman)
Asahi Momozono (Terumi's cousin and first girl on his list to get)

Interesting Details: None really right now.

Final Thoughts: Since it is a short 10 page or less chapter manga it's a little sad it couldn't be a little longer in chapters. Could be better with more comedy, but it is a decent overall manga. With more girls to be shown since he is only on his first one it looks to be good. If you want to read a manga with the main character learning to be a pimp you will love this one.

Next Mondays reviews Ratman, Rika, Sugar Dark, Trinity Seven: 7-Nin No Mahoutsukai, and Mouryou No Yurikago.

It's monday time for another manga review. Since Sugar Dark is ending i'm not gonna review it.

1. Ratman

Plot: Meet Shooto. He's a bit vertically-challenged. He also wants to be a hero. But guess what? Midgets can’t be heroes! Ha! So he becomes a villain instead. Sort of. Not really. Wait a minute here, why is he so heroic if he’s sup­posed to be the bad guy? And what about the so-called good guys? Why are they so… evil?

Final Thoughts: I enjoy this manga for what it's worth. A boy trying to be a hero only to be more of a villain.


2. Rika

Plot: It's about a boy named Nishizawa Kazuya who is in 2nd year of middle school. Unlike his younger sister, Rika, he is good at a lot of things. He is also the fastest runner in the school. His parents and other people think that he is a responsible and hard working child. He seems like a perfectly good child but he has a secret that he can't tell anyone. Every day he enjoys peeking at his sister changing clothes.

Final Thoughts: It's alright. Not as good as kiss x sis but shows more than it.

3. Trinity Seven: 7-Nin No Mahoutsukai

Plot: Everyday is a normal day in the small town where Kasuga Arata lives. However, everything changed on the day of the Black Sun, and following it, a magician appears before him. The Black Sun caused the Breakdown Phenomenon which destroyed the town where he lives. Because of this, his normal life was artificially reconstructed by a Grimoire that his childhood friend had left. Just what is the purpose of the magician coming to the town? What will he do with the Grimoire's keepsake?

Final Thoughts: Decent harem manga, but it gets a little old with the cloths ripping of the girls.

4. Mouryou No Yurikago

Plot: A group of students finds themselves on a sinking capsized ship. Together with zombies.
What happened to the ship and why are there zombies aboard?
It's a battle for survival against time, zombies, and what more?

Final Thoughts: This manga is a rival to High School Of The Dead. The zombies are better in this manga than HSOTD. It is one of the best under rated manga I have read. It should be a top 10 manga. It is a must read if you love zombies, horror, and watching people get killed in awesome ways.

Right quick another good manga.

1. Jigokuren - Love in the Hell

Plot: Rintaro dies and goes to hell to be under the lesser devil koyori. The only way he can leave and go to heaven is to go through all kinds of torcher. The worse the torcher he goes through the better the money he gets to get food and water.

Final Thought: Funny manga all around. Looks like it can turn into some kind of love story between the two like in the manga My Balls!

Because i'm running low on manga to review and don't want to read crappy ones to review i'm only going to review 2 or 3 from now on.

Ore No Kanojo To Osananajimi Ga Shuraba Sugiru

Plot: Eita enters high school aiming for the National University School of Medicine. Because of his parents' divorce--and his goal--he shuns anything to do with romance or love. One day Masuzu, the school beauty with the silver hair, who's just returned to the country, enters his life in a most unexpected way. Chiwa, his childhood friend since elementary school, will not let this go without a fight.

Final Thought: Same as most manga with two girls fighting over a guy. It's about average in my book.

Ore No Kouhai Ga Konna Ni Kawaii Wake Ga Nai

Plot: A follow-up manga, Ore no K?hai ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai. Features Ruri 'Kuroneko' Goko as the main protagonist.

Final Thought: It is just like it's sister manga My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute.

Haven't put one up lately due to my busy days.

ROSARIO + VAMPIRE

Plot:
(Season 1) By a bizzare coincidence, Tsukune Aono has accidentally gotten himself admitted to a youkai acadamy, a school attended by monsters (youkai). Just when he thinks he'll run away from there, he meets the beautiful girl Moka and his mood turns ultra happy. However, she transforms into her true form when the rosary on her chest is taken off, she's a super vampire!
(Season 2) Youkai Academy has reopened since the damages done to the school during the riot. Aono Tsukune now returns to school, but unlike the last time he first walked into the academy, he now has the blood of a vampire flowing within him. Dealing with girls and school life has never been tougher, but now Tsukune must control his new inner vampire as he encounters many new types of enemies.

Final Thought: It is a decent manga that is ok with the fighting scenes. It wins over the readers with its comic love scenes.

CHAOS;HEAD

Plot: Takumi is a high school student. He is withdrawn and is not interested in 3D things. In his town, a mysterious serial murder case happens and people get panicked. One day, when he chats on the internet, a man suddenly contacts him and gives him an URL. He goes to the website and finds a blog image that suggests a next murder case... On the next day, it really happens... Could he be really the one responsible? And where is the D-sword that he is supposed to find?

Final Thought: This manga is a mind buster. It is one of my top 20 manga. Good action and little romance mixed in with comedy.

CHROME SHELLED REGIOS

Plot: In this school fantasy story set in the distant future, creatures contaminated by pollution have overtaken the land, forcing humanity to live in isolated mobile cities called Regios. One such city named Czerni is a self-contained school in which freshman Reifon Aruseifu has just enrolled. Reifon reluctantly joins the 17th Martial Arts Studies Unit led by the third-year student Nina Ant?ku and embarks on a series of adventures.

Final Thought: This is a good manga. I would compare it to valkyira chronicles. Lots of fighting and action. Good lovable characters.

CHRONICLES OF THE CURSED SWORD

Plot: Rey Yan was an orphan with no home, no skills, and no purpose. But when he comes upon the PaSa sword, a cursed blade made from the bones of the demon king, he suddenly finds himself with the power to be a great hero. The sword's creator is the evil Shiyan, the royal vizier who needs the sword to assist him in releasing his ancestor, the demon king.

Final Thought: This is my far hands down my favorite manga. Sadly it was stoped in the us after 23 books where I bought the korean books and there is about 40. Great fighting scenes. Lots of comic love centered around Rey. Cool demon vs human vs angels towards the end.

ANOTHER

Plot: 26 years ago, in a third-year classroom of a middle school, there was a student named Misaki. As an honors student who was also good at sports, the charming girl was popular with her classmates. When she suddenly died, her classmates decided to carry on as if she was still alive until graduation. Then, in the spring of 1998, a boy named Kouichi Sakakibara transfers to that classroom, and he grows suspicious of the fearful atmosphere in that classroom. In particular, there is a beautiful, aloof girl named Misaki Mei who wears an eyepatch and is always alone drawing pictures

Final Thought: This is a dark manga that is like When They Cry. There is also a anime out right now for this manga and I think most would enjoy this.

CORPSE PARTY BLOOD COVERED

Plot: Corpse Party: Blood Covered is about a group of high school friends in Kisaragi Academy. Kisaragi Academy was built on the grounds of Tenshin Elementary School, which was demolished after a string of disappearances and gruesome murders. After a mysterious earthquake, the students find themselves trapped in an alternate reality Tenshin Elementary School, where the murders of others trapped before them have continued unabated...

Final Thought: This is a ok manga so far. I'm only a bit into it and will update this after I get more into it.

PAPA NO IUKOTO O KIKINASAI!

Plot: The story explains the day-to-day of a college freshman just starting a new life in the School of Literature Department of Tama University. While he grew up with his sister, he left and lived by himself when she got married with a man who had two daughters from previous marriages. He tried to distance himself from that family and so he moved out to live on his own. About 3 years later he was asked by his sister to visit and babysit the girls which suddenly turned his life upside down when the girls' parents went missing. He now has to live with the three daughters of his sister; with which two (from a previous marriage) are not related by blood: a tsundere (14 years), a little demon (10 years) and a small girl (3 years). In a six tatami mat size room.

Final Thought: This manga has a good story around it. The story is something you don't see in anime and you feel for the characters.
