Elemental Ninjas, not bad the story, well...


When I read the first volume of Flame of Recca, it didn't really stick, and usually when I read a good manga, it sticks, I really like it, and want to continue buying more volumes. However, this one, did not stick with me. It's really not one of the best, despite the fact that it was published by Shogakukan in Japan, which published awesome manga like Ranma 1/2, Case Closed, Beyblade, Inuyasha, Maison Ikkoku and short storied on Pokemon.
There were some good things about it, like Recca, and a few others, being able to use elemental powers like earth, wind, fire and water, something totally different from the Naruto ninja manga, and the fact that Recca and Yanagi have a pure-hearted relationship. But the story, well, was not that great, and besides Recca and Yanagi, the rest of the characters are not that great. Domon is uglier than Kuwabara (of Yu Yu Hakusho), and doesn't even have the personailty that makes Kuwabara actually likable, Fuko is supposedly a tomboy, but she seems way too slutty. If you are looking for an action manga, get Yu Yu Hakusho, or another Shueisha Jump or Shogakukan title, (manga published by them, are published by Viz in US). Flame of Recca is okay, but not the best.
