Kingdom Hearts, Volume One is the first manga that I have read. I had never found anything that fit my interests. I am a big Disney fan and when I found this series online I decided to give it a try. So far I am enjoying the story so far, though at first I had to re-read it after I had finished it to make sure I understood all the key plot points and what was going on. I really like the concept of Sora traveling to the different worlds of the Disney movies.

This was a great thing for them to make. the only thing that disappointed me was the battle times. To me they were to short but that does not take away from the great story line of. I would recommend to anyone who likes the KH1 game and/or tokyopop.

It was great!!! I read and like all the books and everything in them! The only thing that was disappointing that you don't see some worlds, like Halloween Town (that sucks). But I still think it's awsome!!!!

It is really, really good! It almost copies the game, but I guess that's what it's supposed to do. It's very well drawn, and it leaves off at a cliff hanger! It makes you want to read more and more! A must have for the Kingdom Hearts fan!

This is a great comic. You can tell that the illistrator had a passion for the game and this book.Everything is extremely detailed and is ajacent to the game .It's cool to see Sora and the gang looking very mangaish.A great buy for any KH fanboy...or girl.

This is a must have for any Kingdom Hearts fan!!! I loved it When I read it, but it was to short. I also noticed that they didn't show all the characters in the first volume when they should have. But anyway I going to buy them all because This is a must read series!!!

when i finally got the game kingdom hearts i was stunned by its fantastic plot. i mean i was expecting a more disneyish story not something so serious. when i got the comic book i was pleased... kind of. the book was wayyyyyyyyyyy to short. i finished it in no time at all. on top that aeris isnt even mentioned. i liked aeris so im hoping theyll put her somewhere later on. if you cant get the game this makes for a good buy but if u have the game you may want to just rent it

O.k., so they have the story set up perfectly: a girl comes from a different world to the island, a voyage that is not entirely explainded, strange black creatures known as heartless come, a door opens somewhere, Riku acts very suscipious. I luv da' mysteries! I like reading the books of this series cuz' the game is fun but it took me like three hours to finish the first level. But the game is good too.

Kingdom Hearts is one of the best-selling PS2 titles of all time and deservedly so. It features real-time combat (a rarity for a Square RPG), a great story and scores of classic Disney and Square characters. Considering the success, it's hard to believe it took so long for a manga version of Kingdom Hearts to hit the states. Shiro Amano sets out to retelling the game's story but without the bad camera or those annoying Gummi Ship missions. But translating a game into a comic isn't such an easy thing and Kingdom Hearts, ultimately, just isn't that good of a read. For those who haven't played the game, the story follows a young boy named Sora who wields the mystical Keyblade. With this sword/key in hand, he can vanquish the Heartless that are overtaking various Disney-themed worlds. Along for the ride are Goofy and Donald Duck, who are subsequently searching for their missing king, Mickey Mouse. Mixed into this traditional youth-to-hero saga are numerous Final Fantasy characters and the most recognizable names from the world of Disney. Kingdom Hearts the game benefited from the charm and nostalgia of Wonderland, Neverland, Halloweenland and many other classic Disney locales. Running into Captain Hook or assisting the 100 Dalmations added an extra layer of emotional investment to the story. None of that translates to the graphic medium -- at least it doesn't here. Scenes are never given time to develop and therefore characters pop in and out so fast, there's little time to take them in or enjoy the surroundings. Amano has chosen to go for a literal translation of the game, so there's scarcely anything new for those who've already enjoyed the adventure. For those who haven't experience Square's game, the story is too jumbled in its retelling to be compelling. Amano needs to bridge some of the gaps from the conversations lost in the game and give readers a reason to care for Sora and Riku. Though the story takes some hits in translation from the videogame, Amano's artwork fits Kingdom Hearts perfectly. If nothing else, seeing Goofy, Donald and Sora in action made me want to replay Kingdom Hearts. The manga version of Kingdom Hearts could have been much stronger and is hurt for taking the game piece-for-piece. There are even some hokey gaming elements included in the story, which only make sense in terms of gameplay, not in the context of a comic-book adventure. It's hard to say no to the low price and the great art, but Kingdom Hearts doesn't do the game justice and therefore shouldn't be on your bookshelf.

The book had some good drawing and i like the extra pieces in the back it really helped to see how they druw the characters. But other than that it was based right off the game and the game was great so it made the book excellent.
