Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The second installment of the popular Kingdom Hearts video game series makes its way into print as a manga adaptation. Readers follow Roxas, an energetic young boy enjoying his last days of summer vacation, as he struggles to understand the mysterious dreams of a boy named Sora and the appearance of a group of monsters whom fans will recognize as reminiscent of the heartless of the first Kingdom Hearts. Together with his friends Hayner, Olette and Pence, Roxas soaks up the last precious moments of summer, while forces of good and evil conspire to disrupt these peaceful, lazy days. Amano faithfully translates this popular and complicated video game into a manga. The adaptation is very well done, effectively blending battle sequences and in-game fights into elements of a bigger story. New readers will be able to follow along without any complications or knowledge of the first Kingdom Hearts, although the existing fanbase may be put off or bored by the literal translation of game to manga.

I am so excited to have all of the new American releases of Kingdom Hearts manga coming in! Kingdom Hearts II was excellent, going a bit beyond the two releases that were distributed here in the past. There are also some bonus color pages, and two photo-prints of the cover for the original releases of Kingdom Hearts II, Volume 1, and Volume 2. I highly recommend this purchase!

You can see that Shiro Amano's Artwork is getting better since the debut with the first KH Mangas!
I highly recommend buying it if you are a KH Fan or just getting to know the series, but I would start with Kingdom Hearts, Vol. 1

Kingdom Hearts is a manga/video game that take element of Final Fantasy series along with some of your favorite Disney characters. For example Mickey Mouse is the king. I know it might seem childish but the elements of Final Fantasy appalling to older people.Kingdom Hearts Two starts after the events of the first kingdom hearts. You first start out with Roxas. Roxas and his friends are relaxing as the final days of summer vacation is almost over. Then the heartless strike and with organization 13 trying to reset Sora’s past before he awakes.Kingdom Hearts Two I neverseems to slow or fast. Because of the great characters the develop in the story. The never fell left behind or pushed to the side. Even though Disney characters are in it still makes for a great story for all ages. Overall Kingdom Hearts 2 Volume 1 is an excellent read.

Love this Kingdom Hearts is my favorite video game series of all time I bought vol 1 & 2 by Tokyopop at a book fair back in 2008 but they never released the rest but then when I heard that they were being reprinted by Yen Press I knew I had to pick them up I bought 2 and 3 first because I didn't have enough and I figured the Yen Press vol 1 was just vol 1 & 2 of the Tokyopop so I bought this one and this time the right one was sent because the last time I ordered from a different seller they sent me the Tokyopop edition vol 1 but they didn't know the difference between the two so it wasn't on purpose

If you read it as an individual story itself it's a good manga because 1. It's full of action! 2. It's not like those perverted mangas nowadays so this is fun for all ages. 3. The art is pretty nice.
All I can say is the story was composed in a little childish way compared to the game. I have nothing to say about the quality because I read mine off a library book. But over all try to read without comparing it :)

This best serves as a companion to the game series rather than a replacement. The more humorous take on the story can appeal to many players, though mostly those who already played the game. The only downside to the manga series is that combat is heavily condensed or just glossed over.
To those who purchased the original prints of the KH2 manga by TOKYOPOP, this serves like a compilation or a catch-up.

I'm a huge fan of the Kingdom Hearts series. With the addition of this book to my collection, i have gotten one step closer to obtaining everything KH related. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the books based on the games and would recommend them to everyone.

Kingdom Hearts delivered as promised. The condition was advertised as "good". It was actually better than good, I would say excellent. I will definitely order from this company again should the need arise.
