3.5 - I know Gossip Girl is an exaggeration of what high school drama is like, but this manga, Arisa, is taking high school drama to the extremes! Arisa is not really anything like gods forbid Gossip Girl though. Sure it tells about school outcasts, egocentrism and social power like GG but these are only secondary to the mystery that makes the plot go round. The characters here have the same shallow resolves but their actions are way too much darker and insane. Not Yuno Gasai or Sekai Saionji in ...more
Suspect for KING:

Kudou Rei is a recent transfer student and he is commanding a student to steal Midori's phone. He suddenly appeared yet he appears to be so evil. What is his role in all of this? What is he planning to do with Midori's phone?

Manabe has the last phone. He is one of the chosen heroes. I thought that he was helping Tsubasa fight the KING. What side is he really on? Why does he have the other phones with him? What is he planning to do with them? I can't believe that Manabe locked T

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 4 but will of course have them for previous volumes. **

Tsubasa's acquired a huge clue from Mariko and is determined to figure out who the owners of the five chosen numbers are. Knowing Arisa's boyfriend is one of them complicates things and makes Tsubasa's charade even more difficult. And the King is still playing his dangerous g

I've been wanting to read the next one in this series for a while, and I finally found it. I'm mostly enjoying the series, but I'm still wondering where it's going. As more complications are just about the only thing happening.
At the beginning of this one, Osawa steals the phone from Tsubasa, putting her in a fire in the midst, only for Kudo, the guy that set her up, to 'save' her. Osawa uses the phone to make a wish, because he wants this girl, but then she makes fun of him (because she thin
Am i the only one who is confused at this stage?! XD hahaha oh my god! This is so tense. So exciting! :)))

Now there's new character. Shizuka. Hmm.. -.- and she used to be friends with Arisa? Oh my gosh! I swear this manga is so interesting. So Shizuka is the 1st King's victim. She was alienated by her class. Aww

Arisa is almost as good of a manga as Rurouni Kenshin. If there was more action and blood then It would be perfect. Either way you go Arisa still is a fantastic book the way it is now. What I really want to know is how is Tsubasa is gona get those cellphones from Shizuka. If I was her I'd take them and run but the problem is if she is the king or not. I'm pretty sure she's not because that would be stupid because why he king steal the cellphones? Also if Tsubasa does manage to steal the cellphon ...more

i keep thinking, i read these 2 years ago, but it feels like yesterday.

The thing with stories like this, is that they leave everything vague enough that anyone can change sides at a moment's notice. Basically, it can happen because the characters haven't been developed thoroughly enough so that you know their motives. I enjoy this story, I just want the characters to be explained a bit clearer so that I have a firmer idea of who is who. The plot, on the other hand, is an interesting one. I enjoy the concept, and just want to see how it ends up.
These arisa books get better!
This series is great so far, and still going strong! This particular volume was exciting and opened up even more questions about the whole mystery. I even gasped when something terrible happened to one of the characters! At first I suspected one of the main characters to be "the King," but it is not clear whether or not he actually is. I've realized that in this story, anything is possible when it comes to the identity of the king! I will definitely keep reading the other volumes in this series ...more

Recommends it for: Those in favor of really mysterious mystery manga. And fans of Pretty Little Liars.
King Time and . . . a mysterious person lurking about and . . . mysteries to solve . . .


IF YOU LIKE PRETTY LITTLE LIARS this would be a very perfect anime for you to read.

I mean it's not really really long and as dramatic as Pretty Little Liars, but reading this . . . reminded me of it. Suspenseful AND with those cliffhangers at the end to make you buy the next book. (Ahahahahaha! But don't all authors use that money-gaining strategy??)
Victoria Newman
Is a great book to read
And now we're hitting the ridiculous point.

This series is still really good, but trying to keep one-upping itself is making it jump the border of exciting into ridiculousness.

I hope it ends soon before it gets too... bizarre.
Yet another twist in Tsubasa's investigation into the identity of the King. I like the introduction of this new character though--she promises to be interesting.
Domini Phillips
I am loving this series. I'm so happy to have found this series. It Arisa has the right mix to keep me reading one volume after another. Highly recommend.
Rachael Graham
A bit different from your average shojo with elements of mystery, suspense and LOTS of twists. Good fun.
Sarah ~Sehrenity~
Although this volume was still intriguing, the addition of new characters added confusion in some parts.
Kristine Pratt
Confusing storyline at times. Very twisty!
