I found a new favorite mangaka!!! Yeah! What to say about this great piece of art? After reading Ultras I was left feeling that all the stories were unique and totally worth spending my time on them. But let me start from the beginning. I'm a long time reader of manga and comics in general. I prefer slice of life stories with both comedic and dramatic touches (even though I also enjoy the smutty ones :P) Anyways, I'm thankful for having read Ultras because I discovered Est Em!! I think she's on my top 10 mangaka list right now. There are five stories in total. The first one, Ultras, is the longest story about two fans of different football clubs that become lovers. The grandfather is really adorable, especially in the extras! I found the second story, Say Hello to Mister Smith, quite interesting but a bit short. I think it has potential to be extended. The third story, The Onlooker, was also short but weird. It leaves you with many questions that cannot be answered! That may be a plus or a minus, depending on the reader. Moving on to the fourth story, Who Killed Oscar, I have to announce that I fell in love with the plot! It was quirky and funny and quite satisfying. Definitely my favorite from the whole volume! And finally, the last story, Local Y Visitante, is Spanish-themed. It talks about two young men trying to surpass obstacles in order to show their affection (language and culture barrier mostly). The art is westernized, so there are neither chibis nor any funny weird faces and hot bishies. (even though I found the protagonists totally to my liking!). The drawing style is more mature than most yaoi mangas but it was totally my cup of tea. It is implied throughout the manga that Est Em has been deeply affected by Europe and especially Spain (many of her other manga contains Spanish-themed stories as well). The comedic element is not absent here. The humor is subtle and sometimes unexpected, for instance the scene from the "Who killed Oscar" story, but I don't want to spoil the end... I mustn't forget to add that Est Em has a unique way of showing that sense of humor, so a careful reader (with some basic football knowledge) would recognize in a drawing of hers that all 11 protagonists from all the five stories form a football team trying to separate (?) a FIFA world cup into 11 pieces!! To conclude, I totally loved this manga!! It worths your money and time if you are a fan of realistic stories that are also funny and a bit weird in their own special way! I think that the fact that most stories do not contain sex scenes or end giving off a feeling that are unfinished might annoy some readers. But I'm totally fine with it and I found a new great mangaka!!
