About the Author

Pokemon is more than a game or a TV show, it's a cultural phenomenon that has won the hearts of Japanese and American fans alike! Pokemon comics, games, animation, and toys are run-away hits worldwide. But Pokemon's appeal comes from exciting stories and dynamic personalities-the heart displayed by Ash and the loyalty of Pikachu and the other Pokemon. See for yourself what all the excitement is about.

I can't wait to read the continuing story!

The books are also very small, much smaller than most manga books I've ever purchased.

Pokemon is awesome and fun to read more than digimon or bayblade .

I haven't read comics (manga is the Japanese word) about Pokemon for a long time, but I was eager to read the Black and White series, story by Hidenori Kusaka and art by Satoshi Yamamoto. For me, it was really good and fun to read. It is a story about a ten-year-old boy named Black who has wanted to be a Pokemon trainer ever since he was a little kid....or littler, rather...toddler age, I think. Most Pokemon stories are about a young person becoming a trainer and challenging the region's gym leaders, Pokemon League and finally the Pokemon League Champion while facing a threat from the series' antagonists (in Black and White it's Team Plasma, as well as a mysterious stalker guy named N--yep, his name is N), but this story gained its own little charm and individuality pretty quickly, I thought. The series was creative, and in each volume I could tell that the author and illustrator had a good time creating the series by seeing how the characters interacted with each other, and because of the funny, cute and amusing little mannerisms the human and Pokemon characters have. Instead of just having the characters go on another generic journey, it had a nice touch of depth and history that the Pokemon games sometimes don't or can't have because of the fact that the games have to appeal to a huge amount of people. The main character in the games normally doesn't talk, but when Pokemon is made into a manga series, the author and writer add nuances, history and personality to the characters and Pokemon which gets pretty interesting.

Even though the volumes were pretty short, there was a lot to look at in each one, a lot of interesting stories and, again, lots of meaningful character interaction. It seems that the author and artist knew what they were doing and used their time, words and style well.

my daughter loves pokemon manga (she's 7) so I bought these for her for christmas. I was ecstatic to find them so cheap. They came faster than I expected, and contain the full 8 volumes plus a cardboard box for them all. very nice. She will LOVE them

When I bought them I was expecting a large box set because they were 8 books and I thought they were average thickness in pages as a regular manga would but when I got I was surprise how thin the books were about 60 actual pages in each book then I saw why it was cheaper then other book sets. Overall I still enjoy them and a cute fun manga they have very nice quality the covers a have combo matte (black) and laminate (white) feels real nice artwork been done nicely so I recommend to any pokemon fan and or manga lover.

I'm so glad I got the box set. For the steal of a price that I got it for, I shoulda guessed the volumes would be thinner than a normal manga. I expected the poster to be bigger but it's still nice and I'm glad I got it. But besides my overestimated expectations, I really like the box set.
