My Thoughts:

-    Why do these read from left to right? They should read the other way!

-    These follow the video game pretty well. There are a couple of worlds missing though, and I wish they had included everything.

-    I love seeing Final Fantasy characters mixed with Disney characters! So brilliant!!

-    The story is a bit confusing. I wish they explained things better.

-    I like how some of the panels overlap. Some of pages are crazy organized chaos.

-    Reading these makes me want to play the game again.

-    Seeing Goofy as a turtle will never get old.

-    I wish these were in color. I wonder why they decided to do them in black and white?

-    These were fun to read, but I probably wouldn't buy them. I'd rather play the video game.


  1. I didn't realize there was Kingdom Hearts manga. That is why they read left to right. In Japan that is how Manga is written. Odd I know! Probably in black and white because it's cheaper. I love the Kingdom Hearts video games. I have only played the two on the Playstation. I wish I had a DS so I could play the newer games. Sucks that I don't have one.

    1. Manga reads right to left, so I was confused why this one reads the wrong way for manga. I love the PS ones!! I didn't know there were more on the DS. I have a DS!
