Product Description

About the Author

Pokemon is more than a game or a TV show, it's a cultural phenomenon that has won the hearts of Japanese and American fans alike! Pokemon comics, games, animation, and toys are run-away hits worldwide. But Pokemon's appeal comes from exciting stories and dynamic personalities-the heart displayed by Ash and the loyalty of Pikachu and the other Pokemon. See for yourself what all the excitement is about.

If you are a fan of Pokémon and especially the original games of Red, Blue and Yellow then you will love this set as it follows them just like the games. The volumes look really nice and the outer box case its perfect. My only downside is the poster that comes with it is more like a leaflet than a poster.

I have to admit that I'm always skeptical when it comes to buying anything online, especially when it's something to do with a popular franchise like Pokémon as it can be a minefield for scams.

However, I was over the moon when my books arrived in a well kept box, wrapped carefully and there weren't any scuffs or dog eared pages to the actual box the books were in, to the actual books themselves.

It was honestly a really nice way to start my day to find these books waiting for me in such good condition and as a collector of Pokémon it was an even nicer surprise.

The price is very reasonable for the actual priduct itself as I have seen people throw out ridiculous prices for this exact bookset on other online stores that reach out to the over £100s and to add more praise onto this item, the delivery for this was very quick.

I recommend this to those who are just starting out on the Pokémon mangas and to those who are fellow collectors.

My son is a Pokemon fanatic and has many of the old Pokemon series which were perhaps aimed at younger readers. These books are perfectly pitched for his age (9). He will re-read them endlessly and has been inspired to write and draw his own versions. Money well spent.

To start, this would get 5 stars, but for lack of nicknames, and editing of a certain section for western markets.

This is the start of pokemon manga. Volume 1 does a little bit of introduction, and really the whole of this box set introduces you over time to all the things you understand about the games/tv, but with the manga rules. Which are different to the game/tv.

The main character is Red, who is a huge leap ahead of Ash (of the tv series) in terms of talent. He has an air of confidence and determination, which is a pretty good role model for kids really.

A warning; although its for all ages, it's a little bit darker than most kids books you're used to. Not majorly but there's a huge conspiracy thing going on, and 'mild peril' as dvds would put it.

Drawings are well done and the stories are smart.

If you are a fan of pokemon in general I would suggest you try at least one of the box sets (all are separate story lines) or go into a book store and have a look if they have any.
If you are unsure whether your child would like this, it may be worth looking at one of the other sets, like Diamond and Pearl Adventure (not to be confused with Pkmn Adventures Diamond & Pearl) that one is a bit softer and sillier with it's story.

Price wise, its a very good idea to go for the set instead of a book at a time. The set's individual value (at time of this review) is about £3.40-.50 each and individual normally is £4-£5.50.

Please note if you are new to manga: reads right to left as it is originally Japanese, though these are in english. Also all books are not in colour inside. Just black ink.

tl;dr: strong story, good visuals, good introduction to the rules of the world, can be dark at times so may not appeal to all ages though listed as it will, cheaper than individual books, and (pet peeve) nicknames missing mostly

I love pokemon - who doesn't? And this manga is beautiful. I'm so glad I have it finally. I remember a few years back a guy in my class bought there into school, and we where all stunned, how did he get them?! He was japanese, and his family had sent thme to him. So lucky! But finally, here it is!! Yay!
