Synopsis

Review
This is such a fun manga. It’s not quite what I’m used to because it’s shonen, rather than shoujo. I really enjoyed it though and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Yukiteru is kind of a cry baby, but I think he’ll get over it. Yuno is pretty cool. She’s very energetic and set on making sure no harm comes to Yuki. I like how all the diary holders have different diaries based on their personalities and lives. It makes that aspect of the story really interesting. I can’t wait to see the rest of the diary holders. The whole things is kind of over-the-top, which makes it funny. I love how outrageous all the situations Yuki gets in are. The drawing is good, really defined. I like that in manga.

If you like manga, you should check this one out. It’s fun.

Prude Filter: This manga contains profanity, violence, and sexual references. The books suggests 16 and up.

  1. Thanks for your review, Laura. I might give this one a try now. I don't usually enjoy shonen, either., but I trust your opinion.
