5.0 out of 5 stars A shoujo space odyssey 25 May 2006
By Sai - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
High school is a time of change for many people. People you thought you knew one day become total jerks the next. Maybe it's just part of growing up. Or maybe their body's been swapped with that of a fugitive alien.

Ann is a quiet bookworm. Unlike most shoujo heroines, she's not an especially pretty or kind hearted. At the start of the book she seems to be content to go through life in an apathetic state, not taking much notice of the people around her (including her only and best friend Nikki). But then she notices Jem, a sweet guy who's a bit of a loner. Unfortunately, the most popular girl in school, Rae, also notices Jem around the same time as Ann, setting up an odd love triangle.

Most of the book is spent building up the characters and their relationships. A difference between this book and many other high school set shoujo is that this is an OEL manga written by an American. Well it retains many of the sensibilities found in shoujo romances (especially in the art, which I'll get to in a moment) instead of Japanese teenage love it reflects the trials and tribulations of American high school. The characters talk and act in ways normal for American teens, giving a slight twist on the usual high school manga.

And then there's the other twist on the genre, which is the sci-fi aspect thrown in 1/3 into the book. The sci-fi really throws everything for a loop (in a good way), and by the end of the book it's become impossible to figure out where the story will take us next (though it certainly isn't Earth).

The art is one of the best I've ever seen for an OEL book. Elmer Damaso has what I think of as a great sense of balance. He knows when to use chibis, splash pages, or shoujo tricks like twirling flower petals in the background. He also does a good job of moving the story along at a pace that reflects the slice of life aspect of the first part of the book, and then speeding things up once the focus shifts to sci-fi.

All in all, I think Unearthly is not only a great book, but an important OEL manga with its successful melding of genres. I have a few nit picks, like some over use of slang ('Twee'? Maybe I've been out of high school too long), but otherwise I think this is a great book for anyone who likes shoujo, sci-fi, or both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of this world 31 Oct. 2005
By Bailie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First off I have to admit I havnt read all of this book, just what of it was on the gomanga website...

But of what I have read... this is a great story! The artwork is beutiful, and the story line draws you in, so that you want to kick a certain character, or hug another... I HIGHLY recomend this book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's part 2??? 27 Nov. 2011
By Book Reader42 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
It's a good read with decent if predictable writing but cliff hanger ending with no volume 2 for years now. Save your money and get into a series that is complete.
4.0 out of 5 stars Snarkily Hilarious 10 Mar. 2008
By Judah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
No second volume has been produced, which is a shame. Unearthly ended as the story was getting good, but great dialogue alone can't carry an incomplete story into five stars.

Basically, this is an Americanized version of shoujo manga with a science fiction back-drop. The characters start at a US high school, but setting gets strange quickly enough. Art style is high quality, story-boarding humorous, and characters feel distinct in their own identities. Characters are a quiet bookish girl, her snarky friend, the captain of the girl's volleyball team (popular), and mysterious yet sensitive guy both girls like.

I can't recommend the buy, because remember, no Volume Two. I'm breaking my 'no-manga reviews' rule to warn you. The cliffhangery disappointment of never knowing what happens in the 'Unearthly' universe hit me hard.
5.0 out of 5 stars Quite the sci-fi 10 Dec. 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It was verry intersecting with some surprising twists and turns. I recommend this book for someone looking for an out of this world adventure.
