Your Opinion/Review of the Story: Unique and their will be always a funny part of the manga
Suggested for people who like: I sugggest this manga for those people who want to laugh and cry for some parts of the manga
I'd have to say Corpse Party. The second series Blood Covered or the first: Another Child. I don't want to give it all away, but it's about these students who think a charm created by a psychic or something will make it so they can always see each other. Instead of a positive outcome, they are all transported to a school created by the grudges of three children after they suffered brutal deaths; one had their eye taken out, another their tongue, and the youngest girl's upper jaw was cut off. Each class of students are in different dimensions in the school, so they cannot see friends from other classes, even if they're in the same room. This is a horror series, of course, and it's probably the most fudged up one you will ever see U.U
Title: Witch Hunter
Genre: male-oriented action adventure

The premise is that witches have "supporters," a second being that manifests their greatest powers, while powered humans have different abilities similar to superheroes.
Your Rating for the Artwork: B+
Your Opinion/Review of the Art: Pretty good, though the faces are a big chibi-style at first. It gets better later on.
Your Rating for the Story: B
Your Opinion/Review of the Story: Rivetting story, though it is similar to others already seen.
Suggested for people who like: Not sure, maybe other manga involving witches?
Title: Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
Rating: Mature audiences
Genre: male-oriented action adventure
Basic Premise/Basic Plot: The story follows several generations of people with special powers, who are needed to fight ancient beings who want to conquer the world. The first people are vampire hunters using "ripple" power, while the next generations use "stand" power, similar to the "supporters" in Witch Hunter.
Your Rating for the Artwork: B
Your Opinion/Review of the Art: Uses realistic facial styles and proportions, but the perspective and body positions are often awkward, and the scenes are often cluttered.
Your Rating for the Story: B
Your Opinion/Review of the Story: Interesting, but sometimes too weird to digest easily.
Suggested for people who like: This manga was the inspiration for Street Fighter, King of Fighters and other stories with similar styles. Fist of the North Star is a contemporary.
Title: Genkaku Picasso
Genre: Shonen (?) (I'm not really sure, I found the story in ShonenJump)
Basic Premise/Basic Plot: After surviving a helicopter crash, Hikari "Picasso" Hamura, has gained the ability to see and draw the darkness in peoples hearts. The pictures he draws act as portals for him and his dead friend, Chiaki, to enter their hearts and free them from the darkness.
Your Rating for the Artwork: A-
Your Opinion/Review of the Art: The lips are a neat look for the girls but pretty awkward boys, a lot of them are really....girly... Other than that, the art is where it stands out. The illustrations for the hearts of the characters are just beautiful.
Your Rating for the Story: B+
Your Opinion/Review of the Story: I love the idea of the story to death and the first book really got me hooked, however, the middle was creative but very repetitive. The End seemed a little rushed but I think it was a good way to end it. I just wish more time was spent on it.
Suggested for people who like: I think it is a great manga for someone who is into serial art or and artist themselves. Its a short series, only three books long.
Title: Nousatsu Junkie or Charming Junkie Author: Fukuyama Ryouko (Other of her mangas are Monokuro Shounen Shoujo and Fukumenkei Noise) Rating: I think 12+?
There's nothing explicit, no bad language, it isn't too difficult to understand... But maybe the gender bender part might not be suitable for younger readers. Genre: Shoujo, School Life, Gender Bender, Romance, Comedy Basic Plot:
Naka Kaburagi has all the qualities a model can have, well, not really all. After being rejected by her senpai cause she can't smile like a flower and has a scary face, Naka is determined to get her revenge and to show her senpai that she can smile like a flower just like his female idol Umi Kajiwara. After failing her 19th audition, Naka accidentally bumps into this great Umi but wait..... What is this!? Umi is A MALE!!? To keep Naka's mouth shut, Umi gives her the job as his co-model. Always being together and sharing a dark secret, Naka's road to successful modeling has a lot of troubles to come... Especially when Naka and Umi started to feel funny whenever they are by each other's side....
My Rating for the Artwork: A My Opinion of the Art:
I like it, I mean, it isn't a fantastic artwork that is moving, beautiful and super original. But it's cute and in my opinion it suits perfectly the story's mood. Every character is easy to distinguish from eachother, and they always wear different beautiful clothes.
Your Rating for the Story: A My Opinion of the Story:
Well, it's my favourite shoujo manga and I've read over 400. I loved every single chapter since none were boring fillings. For me the best part of it is that it starts well, continues well (without dragging or losing the point) and has a nice ending that provides closure. Even if it seems simple, few mangas that are long accomplish that. Also, I find every character interesting specially the two main characters. Suggested for people who like:
You could like it if you liked any of this gender bender or modeling manga: Tenshi Ja Nai!, Kuragehime, Kimi to Himitsu no Hanazono, Skip Beat, Shounen x Cinderella, Film Girl or Seiyuu Ka! I recomend it to people who like romantic shoujo manga and sadistic or tsundere male leads. Even if you have never liked a gender bender manga, I think you should give this one a try since the boy isn't really feminine and he has a reason to cross-dress.
