This was a type of Tarzan retelling. It was very cute but I think it could have been a lot better. This is Definitely for a younger crowd.

Really cute and very entertaining book. This was my first manga book so reading it was difficult but I absolutely loved it.

I decided to re-read this quick 3 volume series while I was sitting at home with a cold. The only thing is, I didn't remember the story at all. Was it the cold? Did I really not read it before? Or, was it just so unmemorable that it felt like a completely new story?

This is a story about Chino, a teenage girl who only wants to fall in love. Her father, a great explorer, has just returned home and he always brings her a souvenir from his travels... this time he's brought the wild boy Hyo (think Ta

This book gets 4 sparkly sparkly stars!

Alrighty, so let me just get this straight:

1. I placed this book onto the "Oneshot Manga" shelf, but this book isn't a oneshot. It's a 3-in-1 entire collection book, so it's similar to a oneshot, but not really. I love having the entire collection in one book though, but the suspense and agony that I have to live through is missing.

2. This book was capable of making me smile, let alone laugh and roll all over the carpet like a hyper monkey.

3. This book had

I picked this up yesterday & I'll be honest- it was partially because it seemed to be so cute, but also because this book contains the entire series in one volume, something that I absolutely love. (Hey, why release tons of individual volumes when you can put them all in one & maybe even sell more copies?)

The story follows Chino, your average young girl. All she wants is to fall in love & have a wonderful boyfriend to spend time with. She ends up getting more than she bargained for w
Review for Wild@Heart 1 to 3 and also the extras.

This manga was really great fun, however it does take a while before I really liked it.

Mostly that problem lay with the characters. It took some chapters to get used to them. Chino was a bit too desperate at times, and she overreacted quite a bit. Hyo, was just plain annoying at the beginning, it wasn't until he gained more speech and looked more normal that I started to like him.

Around volume 2 I was loving the characters and just cheering for t

it had a fairly stereotypical romance (meet, find you charming but unattractive, fall in love, push them away, beg them to come back), and it also held the stereotype that uncivilized people come from africa. this view would be nothing new when you read about 19th century culture and prior history. i think it would have been a funny twist if he had brought home a savage from the u.s. well, it would have been offensive for any country or continent to be labled as savage really. this becomes espic ...more

I read this book about a year ago and I still love skimming through the pages and smiling at all the parts I LOVED from this book. This book had a great love story. It might have been short but it did hold me interest. It wasn't the BEST book but I would definitely recommend it to anybody who would like a light read. The characters were amazing and also very well developed. The story let you into the back-ground stories of some characters and they made the book much more enjoyable! I will not gi ...more

This is a story I've read before, twice I believe. It was still enjoyable and the art was fantastic, but the story itself was too light and lacked excitement. It was a fun story, don't get me wrong, but it's the type of story I'd read if I wanted a bit of a pick me up, not for when I'm looking for entertainment. There's a bit of adventure (kind of) and there's a sort of romance (really fast yet manages to still be at least partially believable) and a few twists in the otherwise straightforward p ...more
