    • It strikes me as a problematic oversight that I've never read "The Prince and The Pauper" but have watched many an adaptation on TV and am now reading a shonen manga version of the tale. I really do need to read that book one of these days.That being said, this seems to be a fun interpretation. Astro (I know, I know. It's a fighting manga. Go with it) is a young orphan with a home full of even younger orphans who make up a ragtag family he's fiercely devoted to. After a run-in with a foreign (as [...]


    • Reading the other reviews (on ) tells me that this series is only 2 volumes long. I did not know this going in, and was kind of wondering why they seemed to be trying to cram most of the story into the first volume. But, that explains it.------------ This is an interesting story about a prince and a poor slum boy, who look just alike. The Prince, Barrage, sees this as his means to freedom, and has the slum boy, Astro, take his place. Sadly, moments after the switch takes place, Prince Barrage is [...]


    • Wonderful! Loved this. So fun going into a manga knowing that it is only 2-volumes long for a change. I love Twain's Prince and the Pauper and that is what drew me to this story but it only has the very basic similarity in that the streetkid becomes the Prince. I won't say anything more about the plot since it's just two books! Astro, the main character is a lot of fun with lots of moral fibre teaching the other Royals something they've forgotten for some time. His bickering partner is also fun [...]


    • I enjoyed this book. I have not read The Prince and the Pauper, something I plan to fix someday. While reading manga that have yet to be adapted to anime (to my knowledge at least) I place the voices I imagine being the character in an English translation. I hear Bryce Pappenbrook (Kirito from SAO) voicing Astro/Barrage, Vic Mignogna (Edward Elric from Full Metal Alchemist) and R. Bruce Elliot (Richard Moore from Case Closed, Makarov from Fairy Tail) I was reading this as part of a break from a [...]


    • Homeless teenage boy with a heart of gold acquires superpowers and a mentor, and promptly goes out to save the world. Our hero's trope is protecting family. Honestly, it's a little more complex than that, with aliens and spies, and a prince and the pauper like storyline. Has some potential and some humour.


    • Hmm in between liking it and finding it just all-right. Interesting concept and twist to the Prince theme. The aliens seemed familiar for some reason and I can't remember why. I like the drawing style but it seemed to alternate depending on whether it was an action scene or no. I'd read more but wouldn't count the days til the next volume.


    • Prince and the pauper!Sometimes the art is a little too cluttered for me.But fun and a good update of the tale, with the prince getting killed and the pauper being a better prince than the prince ever was.




    • Great artwork, interesting twist on the source material - script is a little clumsy and occasionally heavy handed




    • An interesting twist on the Prince and Pauper switcheroo. Sadly, did very poorly in the ratings, which is why there's only two volumes.
