Kingdom Hearts Manga

Review written by Boss

3 Series released under Tokyo Pop: 4 Volumes in Kingdom Hearts. 2 Volumes in Chain of Memories. 2 Volumes released in Kingdom Hearts II. It was later bought by Yen Press, but this review is focused toward Tokyo Pop only.

Characters and Story

Though Shiro Amano’s manga adaption of Kingdom Hearts follows the same story as the game, it takes a decidedly more comedic stand.

Following the story of Sora, a courageous boy living on Destiny Islands, Kingdom Hearts is an adventurous tale of friendship, betrayal, darkness, and light. Determined to escape the confines of life on an island, Sora and his friends, Riku and Kairi build a raft, in which they plan to venture across the sea. However, these plans are cut short when an ominous darkness engulfs their peaceful island home. Separated from his friends, in a mysterious new place, Sora sets off on a quest  spanning many worlds, in search of what he has lost.

Throughout the story, Sora will encounter a plethora of familiar characters. Classic Disney icons, like Donald Duck, Goofy, and Mickey Mouse, and Final Fantasy stars, like Cloud, Squall, and Yuffie.

Art

The art is simplistic, yet charming. There is always a sense of depth present, and the occasional dramatic, heavily shaded panel goes along with Kingdom Hearts’ darkness vs. light theme.

Genre and Rating

Action/Comedy

Rated A for All ages

Appropriate for all ages!
