Core Scramble Volume 1 by Euho Jun & Jeong Lee

1.75 stars

The basic premise that I gathered is that there's a guy fighting on a team. This team uses magic to kill "bugs", but the chief on his team is pretty much a jerk. I suggest just reading the synopsis on GR because I just don’t know how to describe this. I have no clue what happened for the majority of this manga. The art style is messy and is not my preference. I was really interested in picking this one up because it’s a Yaoi (m/m manga)

review for volume 1 & 2

I tried to look upon this series with good favor so much that I forced myself to buy the second volume to see how it proceeded but after the rape and further sexual abuse that occurs in v2, I couldn't give it any good favor. I very, very rarely mark a story 1 star but any story in any form that even seems to gloss over sexual assault and rape doesn't deserve any stars let alone 1. (unfortunately 1 star is the lowest available on GR).

A really fascinating venture; monsters, magic, and a bit of inter-personal relationships all mixed in. The action in this is intriguing and I really wonder where it will go. Then you've got the characters. They are what really bring this sotyr to life.
Chaeun is a very earnest, kind, and exceptionally hard working guy. It is continually stated how he's 'just an average solider', yet he fights and holds out well in situations where the other solidiers don't. He is talented and a good learner, but

Core Scramble is such a cliched manhwa that it just blows your mind with its stupidity. The plot sounded interesting, which was the reason why I decided to try this. I don't really read manhwa that much, since it's poor man's manga and usually extremely stupid. This was no exception. So, we have these aliens that invade Earth through portals and we have soldiers that can use magic to destroy them. Your basic sci-fi with boys' love twist to it when the renegade guy enters the picture, and then of ...more
Ya'll I got my yaoi fix on.

I enjoyed reading this book. I actually want to ask Diamond Publishers to make sure they put the rest of the series out there! ::PRETTY PLEASE::


Don't get me wrong, this book is extreme candy. The world-building was confusing, but THE GUYS, IT'S ALL ABOUT THE CHARACTERS.

ZOMG. I mean who cares about bugs, animals, weird looking reptiles, crazy black magic, people trying to steal said magic, and whatever Core Scramble is? IT DOESN'T MATTER. NOTHING MATTERS BUT OUR LOVEL

I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed reading Core Scramble. I was a little lost at first trying to figure out what was going on but was able to pick it up once the back story was revealed. I'm interested to see how the relationship plays out between Chaeun and Moonhoo since the two men are on opposing sides of the fight against interdimensional bugs. The artwork was pretty decent except for the fact that all the men and even some of the women lo
Boring. Predictable.

We are dropped in middle of fight without explanation - check.

War with annoying aliens/invasors - check.

Singular hero - check.

Senseless Explanation - check.

Weirdo/abussive/creepy on charge - check

Not giving a damm - check.
