Item description for Last Hope Vol 1 (Last Hope) by Michael Dignan Kriss Sison...

Handsome and mysterious transfer student Hiroto Nakadai arrives at Maunaloa Academy, but he holds a secret far deeper than anyone can guess. Hiroto is actually a prince from another world, on the run from the evil Lord Kumagai and his dimension-hopping foot soldiers. Together with his newfound friends, Hiroto must journey through space and time, into the realms of the imagination, and beyond death itself in order to escape.

But first he'll have to make it out of high school alive.

Reviews - What do customers think about Last Hope Vol 1 (Last Hope)?

Great art, fun story, what more could you ask for?  Jul 15, 2006
Last Hope is very good, considering the fact that it is an Original English Language (OEL) manga. The art is exceptional and the story, though lightweight, is a lot of fun.

The story follows Hiroto, who is a prince from another dimension. At the beginning of the story, Hiroto is on the run from his nefarious uncle, Lord Kumagi, who murdered his family. Hiroto escapes to Maunaloa Academy in Japan using a dimension traveling device which is promptly damaged. Hiroto decides to enroll in Maunaloa Academy until he can find someone who can help him fix his traveling device so he can return home and re-claim the throne from Lord Kumagi.

The story is a lot of fun, very exciting, and the art is great. The characters are drawn very distinctively, so it is easy for the reader to tell them apart (unlike some other manga I could name; Dragon Knights, for example). The dialogue is a lot better than most manga, too; there are no "I will rule the world! Bwahaha!" speeches here. Although there is some romantic content (several of the students have crushes on other students), it doesn't became sentimental and angsty.

Last Hope may not have the most original story ever written, but it's still a lot of fun and has great art. So, check it out. You won't be disappointed.
could have been better  Jul 3, 2006
The way this book could have been better is if the second volume didnt take so long to come out. Anyway, other than that, the artwork was very nice, the story was cool, and I think Colleen and Hiroto could make a good item ;)

I love everything about it it has a good story line from what i can see and gets you excited. You should really buy it you will injoy it no doubt about it.
Is this where manga in america is going?  Jun 13, 2005
This is a really nice entry into the manga market from Seven Seas, the publisher that seems to handle exclusively content from western/american creators. Storywise, it's passable, mildly intriguing characters, a bit more derivative than typical manga fodder, but considering the general type of work I've come to expect from most manga it's not surprising.

Artistically, though, it's a real gem. The artist on this is easily better than a lot of Japanese artists that are way more famous (Eiichiro Oda, I'm looking at YOU...) I think boosting the visual quality of the work produced under the American Manga genre is the first step to a real establishment of this type of work in this country. The next step will be making stories that are acceptable and less derivative of obvious Japanese story-models, and focusing less on the gimmicky Japanese aesthetic sales point. Americanization of this type of work is really going to be the decisive move in whether manga (in the US) dies as a short-lived fad or lives on as an established storytelling genre, and hopefully this book and others like it will begin to lead the market in that direction.
a great melding of Japanese and American styles  Jun 4, 2005
I really enjoyed this book. As a manga fan, I've been skeptical of most American efforts to duplicate the look and feel of manga, especially since so many of them seem to just be attempts to cash in on the category's success. But Last Hope's amazing art and crisp dialogue proved to me that you can take the best elements of Japanese manga and American storytelling to create something new, different and exciting.
