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.

It's a nice set, but not the entire series. I'm not certain who big the whole series is, but I've found at least another 8 books elsewhere. The books are also very small, much smaller than most manga books I've ever purchased. It would take 3-4 books to match the width of the Tokyo Pop and Viz manga books I have on the shelf.

Pokemon is one of my favorite things, and one fateful day, i found volume one of these wonderful mangas. I quickly got acusstomed to the new reading style and also bought volumes 2 and 3. But once i got box sets one and two for my birthday, i donated my isolated volumes to the school library and have been buying pokemon mangas ever since that day.

I bought these for a 12 year old boy who is Dyslexic. He had been in Special ED at school for 5 years but he continued to have trouble reading so he did not enjoy reading. Once I started buying the Pokemon books he started reading more. These are simple to read and easy for him to read. After he reads a book I have him write a 2 or 3 sentence book report for each book. He must complete the book reports for every book in the collection before I order him the next collection. It took him a couple of months to complete the reading and book reports for the first 2 collections I bought. Now he has the books read and the book reports written within a couple of week. He told me the other day he is enjoying reading. Thank you Hidenori Kusaka for writing these books.

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.
