    "The Kindaichi Case Files is very smart and well written series with a good balance of comedy carpeting the solving a murder detective story line. Although it is very good, it can be argued that it is not the best manga detective series because there are a lot of good ones out there."

    "I know that Death Note is generally held in high esteem by fans of manga and anime, enough that it got its own western live action film adaptation. I'd probably recommend this as a solution to the problem."

    "Saint Tail is not for everyone. You will love it if the classic shoujo style gives you nostalgia for the nineties. If you love Robin Hood tales, or cutesy girl protagonists, you will definitely enjoy. It is a fun read, but be aware of what you are getting into."
