Quotes

..."Ten years ago this talent would have to navigate a byzantine and antiquated studio system to have opportunity like this," he said. "Today, YouTube has afforded them direct access to audience. If Mike Judge was starting today, he would be on this platform.  Same with Trey and Matt from South Park. Michael Bay would be doing short-form videos similar to Freddie W and Corridor Digital. These are the next-gen filmmakers and talent and we're excited to be bringing premium stories to this audience."
...So why does she spend so much time having her breasts grabbed by guys? This one seeming contradiction is merely indicative of Bloody Cross " base issue: it has a lot of really great parts and a lot that just seem to be there for the pandering. This book is mostly concerned getting back the Second Prophecy Book, which was taken out from under Tsuzuki's nose by his fallen angel brother. When it's doing that, the story's exciting with battles, spells, and illusions – the phantom zone set up by one of the Arcana guys is really creepy, what with all of the hands and dissolving body parts. When it isn't advancing the plot, we're meeting Nao, another half-blood who likes to grope Tsukimiya, and watching the happy adventures of our goofy gang of heroes as they hang outout in Tsukimiya's apartment and eat delicious food. That neither section is really all that strong is also a problem. Shiwo Komeyama 's story is always just good enough and never quite good...although the end of the volume is very strong, so things really may be looking up. Komeyama's art appears to be improving somewhat as well, or at least getting more creative as Tsukimiya changes clothes and Nao looks different from the other male characters in the book. The base premise of the series – that someone is going to replace a vaguely Judeo-Christian god, may not sit well with some readers, and that really still is pretty central, but mostly this is just a shameless action series that is definitely showing improvement with each volume."
Whispered Words " first omnibus has its slow moments, but is an enjoyable, sometimes compelling read nonetheless. Its characters are varied and its story and setting somewhat more realistic than we tend to see in the genre, so if it gives us school festivals and two bathing suit chapters (beach and pool, of course – this is a manga), it can be forgiven. The translation has its issues, but do not let that stop you from reading this slice-of-life story about two girls trying to reach the ones they love."
...DOUBLE-S " omakes are very entertaining, though!"
