ANN Review: Pokemon Adventures (Vol. 08)

ANN Review: Pokemon (Vol. 08)

Eager to spread my love of this under-appreciated series with the masses, I recently reviewed Pokemon Adventures (Vol. 08) over at AnimeNewsNetwork.

What else can I say? I’ve been reviewing the majority of the series here on Kuriousity and it’s still one of my favourites. It’s always difficult to recommend the series to people when there’s so much assumption based on the mass-media phenomenon that Pokemon is. But, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Pokemon Adventures is a fun, surprisingly-serious (and violent) at times yet adorably drawn series that captures the feeling of the original games far better than I felt any other adaptations have. It was fun reading from other fans in ANN’s forums.

But I digress and should be summarizing my thoughts of this volume!Volume eight starts the beginning of a new story arc with the cast of characters we’ve known before predominantly behind us as they do their own thing elsewhere for the duration of this book. I liked the new character Gold who is an entertaining sort (and he throws Pokeballs with a pool cue!) though I did miss the other characters. Only a few more books until the series changes artists so I’m enjoying Mato’s work while I can.
