Reads R to L (Japanese Style).

My Thoughts:
For those of you that know me, you know I'm obsessed with Pokemon. I've loved it since I was a kid. I love the anime, the video games, the memorabilia, etc etc. Recently I found out that there is a manga called Pokemon Adventures, and read the first volume. I really enjoyed it.

Pokemon Adventures brings together everything I've always loved about Pokemon. I enjoyed watching Red discover new Pokemon, and beginning his journey as a trainer. It brought back nostalgic feelings of watching the show when I was a kid. However, the manga is unlike the show. It's similar to the video game, but there are still enough differences to make the manga unique in it's own right. I almost wish they would do a reboot of the show that is closer to the manga. I think a lot of people would enjoy it.

I thought that the first volume of Pokemon Adventures was a great start to the series. I can't wait to continue the series. As much as I loved the first volume, I wouldn't be surprised if I binge read the whole series over the next couple of weeks. I think this would be a great manga to read for someone Pokemon obsessed, or someone completely new to the series. Both would find it entertaining in different ways. 
I give Pokemon Adventures volume 1: 4/5.

I received this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
