Soul to Seoul


Recommended Posts

Any1 read it?

Kai and Spike are best of friends. They have a common background, the fact that they are both half Koreans. They both feel alone and mistreated, angry towards the world, and uncomfortable in their own house. One day in the middle of black Harlem, they accidentally encounter a Korean foreign student, Sunil, and both become interested in her...

I read it at the library and I found it sucky too... :T The plot really just didn't catch my attention. Like, why would you stick an African American that's a mix of Korean blood...? Why not just say they're any type of Asian? T_T

i see no problem in making a character african-american/korean...

it's just like those mangas where american characters can speak japanese fluently...or rather they're half japanese...it's the creator's choice.

Why not just say they're any type of Asian? T_T

because culture counts...at least that's my opinion. ><

what reallie bothered me was the plot.

when i began the first book..i thought it was ok...but then it started lagging.

then the second book..ooh my. i could not continue reading it.

didnt the third book come out yet? i dont remember which volume i left off in but no matter how much i read...i still found no scene that was exciting.

the main character girl and boy seem reallie stoic. majorly stoic...

the artwork is not beautiful or really pretty to look at...but it's simple.

I haven't read it and the only thing reading from the plot I could relate or be inetrested in is that the main character is half-asian and half-caucasian but I read other reviews and they were all really negative. I read the volume summaries and I couldn't even grasp where the story was going. I'd like to take a look at it if it really is as bad as reviews and summaries tell. But I get the feeling it really must be.

Guest JiNi;

its one of my fav mangas.

i think its interesting.. esp to me since im mixed.. i think it appeals more to the mix people and what they have to deal with.

so stop complaining about it. -.-;;

Gelda just wants to spend time with her bro..not like in a weird sick way.

if you actually read other volumes of the book it reveals who she actually likes.

The story gets really good past vol.1

Wow, people judging on a series by just reading the first volume. Stupid.

It's like me saying Mai Hime sucked because it's only fan service.

I thought it was a good read, still need to read the last volume. It sort of has that realistic feel to it.

10 bucks on the next one.

I really felt like this was a waste of money
