View Full Version : DearS, anybody?

Might as well see if I can uncover a few fans of this manga, or see if anyone here has actually read it.

So yeah... DearS. I have read up to volume 5 and it's one of my favourites. I love the "rivalry" between Ren and Miu, how clueless Ren can be and it's probably the only series I like in which I like all the characters. Alice 19th may be my favourite manga ever but I could only take Nyozeka and Frei in small doses. *smacks head*

My favourite character is Nia. One, for dressing up in cat like attire... two, for being insanely hyper and winding everyone up and three, because of her speech-Nii. I also like Nia paired up with Natsuki as my DearS OTP. Nia stops Natsuki's anti-Ren rants and they are of similar height... age i'm assuming... and persona, with the glomping and squeeing.

Et voila.

I thought this was a manhwa (Korean manga) for some reason when I first saw it...

Anyway, I never bothered to read it because of this article on Wikipedia:

DearS is often criticized for a number of alleged flaws, such as having shallow characters, excessive fan service and a somewhat unoriginal plot(Which may not be complete). The concept of a race of perfect, beautiful beings with the sole purpose of serving mankind has previously been explored by series such as Chobits, to which DearS is commonly compared. Some claim that Ren is little more than a copy of Chobits's Chii, with a larger chest and fewer inhibitions, and Takeya as a much more caustic and modest version of Hideki Motosuwa; various other comparisons between the series' characters and storylines have also been drawn.Even with the comparisons DearS is still seen as an original by many fans.

So... I've already pretty much read through Chobits, so I don't see why I have to read something similar again.

Mitsuka-sensei was an awesome character, but she was the only reason I bothered to watch the series and finish. Didn't even bother to read the manga.

To be honest, I think the anime's better because it doesn't take itself as seriously and it stops just as it's about to hit rock bottom in terms of quality.

Well, at least you liked a character... I liked Mitsuka as well. That's something.
