--> "When it comes down to it, ReBURST is a painfully generic, completely forgettable story made up of a bunch of basic stock shonen tropes haphazardly thrown into a blender, with the Pokemon part feeling more like an afterthought than anything else. The main male lead is as flat as a board, the main female lead is textbook useless despite having no right to be, no relationships were established and developed between any characters, the world-building is non-existent, and the plot went nowhere until it was clear that the series was going to get axed, leading to a rushed and unsatisfying ending."

* NightmareFuel: How does a Pokémon get turned into a Burst Heart? One later chapter reveals that the Great Gavel have laboratories doing this. And no, it's not kid-friendly either, with Pokémon more likely suffering FateWorseThanDeath than in other works. And this manga would have been re-classified as {{Seinen}} if the author didn't intentionally skip the procedures out, but ''[[GoryDiscretionShot it shows]]''.

* SoOkayItsAverage: Putting aside [[TaintedByThePreview skepticism of the premise]], people faithfully read on... and generally found it to be underwhelming, but not terrible.

* SoOkayItsAverage: Putting aside [[TaintedByThePreview skepticism of the premise]], people faithfully read on... and generally found The general consensus is that this manga isn't really ''horrible'' (It's unlikely any official Pokémon work ever could be) so much as it to be underwhelming, but not terrible.is just plain ''dull''.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Given the trend of Human-Pokemon hybrids in fanworks, this manga could have been huge. Alas, not only did the the first "official" fusions end up looking [[UncannyValley rather hideous]], the manga itself was rather weak.

** The Great Gavel in general. [[spoiler:Turns out, they're [[HijackingCthulhu abusing the]] [[PhysicalGod Legendary Pokémon]], giving them FateWorseThanDeath for their own profits. Almost sliding into CompleteMonster territory in terms on how they treat Legendary Pokémon, compared to other villains in other Pokémon media.]]

** Hariru is, depending on who you ask, an AntiVillain [[HeelFaceTurn turned]] AntiHero. Or is he? And Carola had the same issue but is given more sympathetic traits.



* JerkassWoobie:
** Carola, if she goes TranquilFury.
** Amu. Would you believe he's of this trope?
** [[spoiler: Fraud, as in the final parts of the manga.]]



* TearJerker:
** The "Mother" chapter. [[spoiler:Karuta finds out that his mother has died, just after he brought the medicine needed for his village]].
** Hariru and Carola's relationships can be counted as this, too.
