This was good, not great. I thought I would really get a kick out of it because I love manga and was really primed to understand all of the insider "jokes" about a manga character dropping into the regular comic world. And it was pretty good. And I did chuckle over the way the manga character's mannerisms and eccentricities were employed (like hearts flying out of his eyes when he saw the girl he liked, or "quick movement lines" appearing around his body and then dropping to the floor). But there wasn't enough *umph* to the plot itself to really five this one top marks, in my opinion. I like fun and fluff as much as the next person, but there has to be SOME real substance to make it a memorable read, or even better, to make it something I want to REREAD...
