From a dying planet shall come the children of light...While on vacation on a small island, young Shiina Tamai dives under the water near an old shrine and discovers an unearthly starfish-like creature. She nearly drowns but is rescued by the silent, wide-eyed little animal, who Shiina befriends and names Hoshimaru. To Shiina's surprise and delight, the creature changes shape, lets Shiina stand on him, and the two fly off into the clouds. But what looks to be a young girl's ultimate fantasy soon takes a darker turn as Shiina and Hoshimaru become entangled in a struggle between rival extraterrestrial factions who battle in the skies upon huge alien beasts called Shadow Dragons, with the fate of Earth hanging in the balance.

"Naru Taru / Shadow Star." by P.B. uit NL (Nederland) on May 21, 2004

Deze manga is anders dan je verwacht,
als je naar de covers kijkt, lijkt het een vrolijke manga met beestjes.
maar als je verder in het verhaal komt kom je er achter dat er mensen zijn die problemen hebben, zelfmoord plegen, mensen die anderen vermoorden.
zelf vond ik het wel een goede manga, maar dit is zeker niet geschikt voor de kleintjes.

"A misunderstood anime/manga" by Daniel Palmer (UK) on Apr 6, 2004

I'm speaking here from watching the Anime and the reactions it got, I expect the Manga is very similar.

Ok here goes ...

This series starts off seemingly going the way of pokemon, kids find strange animals with powers. After the first couple episodes of the Anime people wrote very strong reviews bashing the series as another pokemon. However the series quickly developed into something very different after the first few episodes, and we find a very rich albeit quite strange, and sometimes disturbing story.

The Anime was broadcast on a kids network, however unlike pokemon, people die in very unpleasant ways so don't let that fool you into thinking it's going to be rainbows and magic dust.

To sum up, this series basically describes what different types of people do with power.
