Delightful. Lyga's story will have your head spinning (in a good way). Doran's "realistic" art was inked with a heavy hand, but she seems to have mastered the style of early 80's manga.

Really nifty idea. I loved the idea that manga style reactions/emotions can look so out of place in the "real" world. I would have liked this comic more if it had been in colour (the black and white just didn't appeal to me) and I didn't like the non-manga illustrations. I wished they had picked a different style of Western comic illustrations. That aside, it was really good.

Interesting idea and fairly well executed. Though I question why Ryoko looks like he stepped out of a 1980s manga.
