I'm not an expert on manga or anything, but I really did think the characters were very lovable and crazy. All in all, even though the whole demon night school thing has been done before, I found myself reading this and even giggling here and there. Throughout the whole volume I was mesmerized by the art.
It's a very short series, only two volumes, which is the only downfall I can see. I'm very glad I found it and I would get it again, as well as check out any other manga by the same artist.
St. Lunatic High School was a manga that Tokyopop originally offered for sale only on their website, a fate that some titles were subjugated to because of low sales expectations. It turns out that the lack of belief in this title was justified. Relative to the writing and concept, the art was the standout of this first volume. Majiko's style and character designs reminded me a bit of Takeshi Obata's work on Hikaru No Go but with less attention to detail and backgrounds. The writing is where this book suffers the most. First of all, the concept of a demon night school, while not the most original in the world, could've worked if the characters had been anything more than voided lumps of flesh with no personality. The comedy aspects of the book were also flat and humorless. There just wasn't anything interesting going on in this manga and it became rather boring. If you read this book on a Monday, by Friday you won't remember much about it.
