Hidenori Kusaka/MATO – Viz – 2010 – 51+ volumes
We should all respect the Pokemon manga, for it is Pokemon dollars that keep things like Dorohedoro coming out. And I will always love it for that. But it is a fairly cute kid’s manga. I can read it in small doses, after I’ve had heavy doses of playing the game. This was from… last summer, I guess.
For some reason, I wrote notes instead of a review, but the notes are so funny I’m going to leave them like this. 7 was the end of the Yellow story arc, but I published these reviews out of order. This was still in my drafts, so here you go.
Red is back in a Deus ex Machina?
They fight Bruno over a pit of acid on the back of a wild Onyx
Team Rocket gym leaders pair up with good guys using Alakazam spoon bending to draw partners. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Blue and Koga fight Agatha in a crazy labyrinth game. Her Arbok is invincible, and has immunity based on the face in its hood. Her Gengar is a creepy and unstoppable shadow terrorizer.
Elite Four are pretty evil, save Bruno, who just likes to fight.
Hilarious team of Bill and LT Surge.
