High School Musical by Asabuki Mari and Disney :|

High School Musical [Manga Adapatation]

Story by: Disney ; Artwork by Asabuki Mari

Yes, it’s the manga version. At first I was shocked to hear that it would be getting a manga adaption, no less by Asabuki Mari(mangaka of Badminton Girl). I admit, I watched the movies(all 3 of them) and was at least satisfied. BUT I still really can’t get over the fact as to why this just had to be adapted to manga. I mean, there are other movies which you can turn into manga but why this?

Anyways, if you’re wondering how I managed to read it, it’s because I had a new friend(yes, a foreigner) who had this and she lent me this. haha. I’m lucky, ain’t I?

Mehh. Whatever. The artwork wasn’t so appealing. In a sense that they almost do not look like the original characters of the story. And look at Chad(it’s Chad right?)’s hair! I mean, wth?!  If you are going to ask what part of the movie is this then I tell you, it’s more like High School Musical 3 only. Well, duhh isn’t it obvious in the cover? *I admit at first it was not for me*

To me, it was failure but it did have some good parts in it too.. I think? I’m surprised to see one of Mari Asabuki’s works like this. Well, it isn’t her fault that she can’t exactly copy the faces of the characters but only their stereotypes.

    If you’ll ask me, it’s not really as bad as it looks but it’s not exactly that great. I mean, yes, it’s really LOL-worthy but you can survive. XDD

    i personally hate high school musical(one of the worst disney movies ever!(not that disney makes any good movies anyway)). but a manga adaption of all things!? how else could they ruin it? i personally hate mangas that aren’t placed in japan(those are usually the best romance shoujo mangas). i still can’t believe they would do something so horrible as to make a manga of that crappy movie!
