As the plot escalates, Tsubasa finds an ally, Manabe. Manabe decides that they could work together to figure out who the real KING is. Tsubasa does not object because Manabe already knows Tsubasa's secret and Manabe believes in Tsubasa. They teamed up in order to bring down a common enemy that they have. Therefore, Manabe cannot be the KING... it has to be someone else. I still believe that it is Mariko because she continues to say strange things and she appears with scary looks on her face.

5 Stars for Arisa vol. 3

My Thoughts and a Mix of the Plot

Okay, first off I thought for sure it was her!!!! Darn plot twists!!!! Who is this person??? Why is he/she so freakin' twisted when it comes to answering wishes??? This is totally how Sherlock Holmes sucked me in! I am a 'why' person. At least we now know 'why' she did it...on to the next set of suspects!

Tsubasa has decided to work with Manabe and he with her, allies now I guess. Together they pool their codes in an attempt to identify th

Arisa is a multiple layered story with mystery elements. I highly recommend starting at the beginning and reading in order.

** This review contains no spoilers for Arisa 3 but will of course have them for previous volumes. **

Tsubasa has gained some leads and potential allies in her hunt for the King, but things have gotten much more dangerous as the King knows she's after him and keeps changing the rules. Only a few will be able to submit wishes, something that won't sit well with those not chose

Series Rating: 3.5Stars (first few volumes are 4 Stars)

I read this series in one sitting, which is quite telling in itself. However I will say now that the story does lag a bit after a few volumes and loses something of the great set up it had at the beginning. That said, the author Natsumi Ando is good at ending chapters/volumes with cliff-hangers. So you get to the end of one book and immediately want to pick up the next one. (Case in point – me.)

The art is excellent and was part of the reason

Arisa is a graphic novel series about a King who grants wishes to a special class of students. Arisa has gone missing and her sister has taken her spot in class in hopes of finding out to where her sister has disappeared. Book three sends the students to the planetarium where 5 are picked to have their wishes granted. When one of the five refuses to make a wish, it requires all five to re-submit their wishes, and for another girl to disappear. I really like this series and am glad that the title ...more

I like the mystery of this series, but it's starting to get a bit confusing. There are times within the story that it seems to jump from the present to the past and it isn't clear. Overall, I enjoy the story and the mystery of who the "King" is, but I'm also wanting it to develop a little quicker. That's my one complaint about a lot of manga series, they develop too slowly plot-wise. That being said, this series has a great plot going on, though the characters could use some work. Overall, it's ...more

This was by far the most emotionally gripping book of the series. When she is in the planetarium and the king is RIGHT THERE it turns out it was just a reflection. Even worse, we see how the students of 2-b actually believe that the king is a type of God, thanking him for their wishes and going to extremes in order to have their wishes asked. It truly goes to show how crazy people get when their desires are granted

Tsubasa's will to go on and find out who is after Arisa is great. Really adds emotion to the whole book series. However when you think about it isn't kinda weird how Manabe got one of the king numbers? I mean it he's got to be working some kind of angle. I just don't know what it is. Thats why I can't wait to check out volume 4. I need to know if I'm right!

The suspects have been narrowed to three and the class starts getting violent, wanting their wish to be the one granted by The King. It really is scary watching totally normal teenagers go from laughing and having fun with their friends to bullies who simply don't care if someone kills themselves or not.

I'm continuing to really enjoy this series, even though I'm not convinced it always makes much sense. But the main character is really likable, and I like all the intrigue. I also like that Natsumi Ando takes stories you think will be all fluff and sunlight to some really dark places!

Not getting much from this series, so this is about as far as I'll go (unless I get additional volumes on the cheap). Was hoping for quicker story development around the mysterious and nameless bully taking advantage of his/her desperate classmates...

One of the best and interesting manga I've read in a while. This volume however is getting confusing. Anyone care to help me explain the story a bit?
