I used to dislike manga not created by Japanese manga artists. I ignored any of the spines without Japanese surnames. “Posers,” I found myself scoffing at them, almost like they were real people. Besides the raised eyebrows from bystanders in my local manga store, I riffled through the stacks of manga.

Oddly enough, Last Hope gave me a new hope in the battlefield between Japanese-originated manga and Original English Language (OEL) manga. It had everything I wanted from a manga.

The story stuck in
Last Hope embodies a lot of worn-out cliches - the main character Hiro is dark and mysterious. He's perfect at everything (except geography). He attracts all the girls, including Ikuko, one of the main characters, and once he does, Ikuko and butt-kicking Colleen discover that Hiro is a prince from another dimension hiding from his crazy uncle. Everybody gets dragged into it, and the antics continue from there.

The plot is interesting and the characters are developed. (view spoiler)
An interesting first part of a story about a prince from another dimension who is on the run from his evil uncle (who has already killed the rest of his family in his attempt to become king). The prince uses some sort of transportation device to end up in our world. He is enrolled in high school trying to get the smartest guy he can find to fix the transportation device when his uncle finds him. He and his friends use the device to escape from his uncle (who is now going to kill them all) and ...more
Hiroto is a mysterious and handsome transfer student at Maunalao Academy and the object of Ikuyo's crush, something her best friend Colleen will never understand. But when Ikuyo and Colleen eavesdrop on Hiroto talking to underclassman and super-genius Alvin they get involved in something darker than either of them could imagine. Hiroto is in fact a prince from another world and when his uncle Lord Kumagai tracks Hiroto to Earth to kill him, Hiroto, Alvin, Ikuyo, Colleen and her admirers are ...more
