Volume Six: Family Feud! of Oh! Great's Airgear
has arrived, a fast and frenetic book for fans of sporting
action. One of the problems I have with the book, and I'm
happy to concede that it might be my age, is the sheer number
of characters that appear. Thankfully there is a biog of nineteen
of the most prominent players. Character design is such that,
for the most part this isn't a problem, though there are a
minority of character designs which are similar enough to
cause some momentary confusion.
you're looking for a deep and meaningful manga then this isn't
it. The main thrust of the book is to provide entertainment
and comedy and within this remit the book does rather well.
True, it's not going to be to a lot of peoples taste, the
humour is less than sophisticated and it is obvious that due
to the use of young girls panties that the main audience for
the book is likely to be young males. The book does recommend
a reading age of 16+, but I'm not so sure that this isn't
a little too old for some sections of it and about right for
the level of sexuality in the book.
Six has a fight between Itsuki and Rika. These two have,
as they say, history, as following Itsuki forming his own
team and winning his first battle Rika had returned and confiscated
his skates, citing his safety as the reason. Not content to
let this go, Itsuki determines to beat Rika only to discover
that she used to be a top Air Treck champion. In Trick
42 and 43 Rika recounts how Sora came to be in
his wheelchair as a justification for denying him his skates.
Itsuki, of course, is not taking this lying down and challenges
Rika, who after Sora supports him gives in to the inevitable...
Cue the big fight...
thing you can say about the book is that Oh Great's artwork
fully portrays the movement and excitement of the fight scenes
and although they can become a little repetitive throughout
the series, they, nonetheless bring a great deal of life to
this still remains one for the fans. Its concentration on
sometimes dubious humour, skates and girls panties is bound
to alienate anyone over the age of puberty.
