Lying Mii-kun and Broken Maa-chan: Precious Lies

It feels like I have only been doing Anime impressions posts for the past few months, so I’ll be talking about manga for a change.

Baby Steps First Impressions

I haven’t posted in a while about manga, so here goes.

As I was browsing around looking for manga to read, I came across Baby Steps. At first I was skeptical as to whether it was any good due to its focus on tennis, which could possibly mean it’s simply jumping on the Prince of Tennis bandwagon. Fortunately, it proved to be an excellent read thus far.

Saijou no Meii

There’s something I noticed about manga in the medical genre, which is that they all have a “genius” doctor as the main character set in a hostile political environment with corrupt hospital directors. This leads me to think about the actual state of the health care system in Japan, although the one we have here in the United States could be improved upon as well.

Saijou no Meii fits the stereotypical medical manga like a glove. Other series I’ve read that fall into this category were Say Hello to Black Jack and GodHand Teru. Even though they might share some general themes, each one is different enough to hold my interest.

Psychic Detective Yakumo

It feels like I’ve been reading a bunch of manga in the mystery genre fairly consistently.

This one is about a guy with a special red eye that allows him to see ghosts. He assists a girl that keeps coming to him for help in solving mystery cases. It’s quite short with only 9 chapters; I would definitely love to see more.

Say Hello to Black Jack

Well, I’m back from a hectic academic week. When I was taking a short break from studying, I saw this manga and decided to quickly read it.

I guess I like the medical genre since I have read quite a few manga in that category. This one contains the usual drama regarding Japan’s medical system and is quite a good read.
