This is the second book I've read of the adorable, funny, little Mameshiba, the first being Meet Mameshiba! The diminutive bean dogs are this time on a few adventures, and while both they and the stories are very cute, they just aren't as funny in comic form as they are in the original Japanese commercials. Part of the problem may be that I've never been that in to comics, but I think the stories here could have been more bizarre and random, like the commercials, and I would've been much more en ...more
Cute buuuut... I believe the Mameshiba are best left as adorable Japanese short cartoons rather than a comic book. The art was cute, but the stories just kind of dragged on. Yes, I am much older than the intended audience, but I'm sure a kid would be just as confused and may also grow bored. It read like a translated comic (kinda confusing because of culture barriers in humor and puns), but they must have purposely wrote it like that because it was created by Americans! Sorry James Turner, leave ...more
I was a little disappointed. I saw the cute artwork for this book at Anime Expo, but the writing is pretty weak. The much-touted trivia includes major errors...such as saying that the first moon landings [1969] happened "over fifty years ago". Since the author belittles the only mameshiba who has two brain cells to rub together, this isn't all that surprising, but it's disappointing.
The little "bean-dogs" have a cuteness factor going for them, and kids may like that.

I really enjoyed this graphic novel. It had nice pacing, and almost felt like watching a cartoon. I loved all the little shorts it had in between every 20 pages or so. The humor was great and a little witty at times also. I also enjoyed the way some of the characters would just randomly tell little educational tidbits of information whether it was about waterfalls or the moon or things that had to do with what they were doing at that moment in time. It was a really great read and I enjoyed every ...more

So, the only reason I picked this up was because the bean dog thingys looked cute, and because when I was young I drew comics about "little people" (who were just colored circles) and their adventures. In one adventure I wrote they got lost in a drain pipe and had to wander around a city, which is sort of similar to this story. As as adult, I didn't really care for this book's chaotic story but the bean dogs are cute.
Almost too cute!! Little jelly bean like creatures have adventures when one goes down the kitchen sink and the others have to rescue it. I was totally prepared to not like this (too cute!) but it won me over with lines like "Numbers are just letters for nerds!" and characters like the Mutant Sewer Chicken! (Yes, there are lots of exclamation points in this book!)

I love these cute beans dogs. They are so unique in their own way. I totally recommend this book if you like comic and think these guys are awesome. I got this book at Borders. I forgot when I finished this book. Somewhere in 2012 or 2011.

Jajaja dos aventuras extraordinarias, divertidas y repletas de datos curiosos, valió cada centavo y aunque algo corto, cada página y viñeta son geniales.
Yup. Have fallen in love with these little bean dogs. This is one of the cutest kids graphic novels I've read in a long time. Completely charming.
So cute! This graphic novel, populated by beans and peas of various types, will be a hit with both boys and girls.
So cuuuuuuute! I wish these were around when I was a kid... T-T
3.5. Not all I'd hoped, but still suuuuper cute. 2nd-3rd.
Pretty cute little graphic novel, very quick read.
