I have to take my words back and admit that I was wrong. A girl at my school handed me some manga albums and told me to read them. Among were some issues of One Piece and, to my astonishment, I actually enjoyed them. It was hilarious and I had clearly judged the manga too early.

On the other hand, I got a headache from Time Stranger Kyoko. The art does nothing for me and the characters were unoriginal and forgettable. I felt like strangling that annoying cat chibi thing. And if there is one thing I can't stand about manga, it's that a perfectly serious plot is so often interrupted by the characters becoming chibis, remarking something humorous or doing something random. If the Japanese really think that's funny, then their sense of humour sucks.

Anyone else read TSK?
