Krissy’s Korner: Pokemon Adventures Volume 1


Pokémon Adventures Volume 1
By Hidenori Kusaka
Publisher: Viz Media
Age Rating: All Ages
Genre: Game/Action
Price: $7.99
Rating: ★★★★★

Red doesn’t just want to train Pokémon, he wants to be their friend too. Bulbasaur and Poliwhirl seem game. But independent Pikachu won’t be so easy to win over!

What was the story about?

This story is about a 10 year old trainer named Red.  He goes through many adventures.

What did you like about the story?

I loved the part when Bill was picked up by Fearow.  I just couldn’t stop laughing at Mr. Director.  I love the part when a Pidgey poops on Professor Oak.  I think the pokemon Red chose were great because they help him.

What did you dislike about the story?

I just hate Blue for hurting the Kangaskhan and it’s young.

Would you recommend the story to kids your age?  Why?

Yes, because pokemon are so loveable!

Jenny's Journal: Pokemon Diamond & Pearl Adventure Volume 1


Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl Adventure! Volume 1
By Ihara Shigekatsu
Publisher: Viz Media

Genre: Action/Adventure
Rating: All Ages
Price: $7.99

Rating: ★★★★★

Storyline:
Hareta, a ten-year-old boy who has been living in the wild for four years, starts his journey with Mitsumi, who is Rowan’s assistant. Hareta accidentally woke a sleeping Onix and sends out Piplup, though not in a ‘friendly’ action. Onix calmed down after many attempts to stop Onix without Piplup. Then, the day after, it seems that Hareta has reached Piplup’s heart with his attempts to stop the same Onix, who seems to be under a spell. After bringing it to it’s senses, Hareta, Mitsumi and Piplup start their journey to reach the legendary Pokemon, Dialga!

What I liked about it:
Everything about it, actually. The way Hareta was eating Piplup on accident was funny and, all the chapters after it were hilarious, as Hareta throws Piplup’s ball far off, into trees, into a lake, and possibly more. Also, in the second chapter, “Hareta’s Very First Pokemon Battle!!”, he flings it into an uncomfortable spot for both the camera man and Piplup. It was pure funny, especially because of the fact that it’s on TV.

Could you make it better:
No, the manga is right on, there isn’t any mistakes. The drawings and the dialogue are what make this manga so hilarious.

Which chapter is my favorite:
Chapter two: “Hareta’s Very First Pokemon Battle!!”, because, as explained above, Hareta throws the Pokeball into an uncomfortable spot for both the camera man and Piplup, making Piplup very embarrassed and depressed. Also, his first actual battle was with Roark, and he also won it, winning his first badge (although it didn’t taste very good).
