Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up—B.ichi aka "B.one" aka "Bone" is what gives Shotaro special kyokotsu powers, but in order to keep them he must do one good deed a day. He needs the help of his other Dokeshi friends, humans with advanced brain power, who must do one bad deed a day, and Mana Migo, a human girl who likes martial arts and fortune-telling. Together they must find Emine aka "Baize" aka "Eminem," who is in the I.C. Prefecture. Yohei Nanami, a normal boy with mechanical skills, joins the group on their journey, which becomes complicated when Tool, a Japanese water imp who lives in a garbage dump, takes offense and goes crazy, and the Dokeshi hunt, a secret government plan to wipe out the Dokeshi, is underway. Fans of Japanese adventure manga will like B.ichi. The black-and-white illustrations are dynamic but can seem unrelated to the text. Still, manga fans should enjoy it.—Lisa Gieskes, CA Johnson Preparatory Academy, Columbia, SC
