Hey everyone! Finally Volume 7 of the Mini Manga series is here. It’s been a while. I had so much fun with this post. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Title: How to Treat Magical Beasts: Mine and Master’s Journal [Vols.1&2]
Story & Art: Kaziya
Genre: Manga, Fantasy
This manga takes place in a world where magic is almost forgotten, and science is taking over. Ziska is one of the few remaining craft practitioners and an apprentice vet. She’s tasked with making follow-up house calls by her master while also trying to stay true to who she is. She finds herself helping magical beasts as they begin to pop up all around her. Some mystery is involved, like her family and this guy who just randomly pops up in trees and says something suspicious. I find little kids in mangas to be adorable. The plot is somewhat predictable.
Title: The Most Heretical Last Boss Queen: From Villainess to Savior [Vols. 1&2]
Story & Art: Tenichi, Bunko Matsuura
Genre: Manga, Isekai, Fantasy
Your typical isekai manga, but I ate this up. Pride (yes, that’s her name) realizes she’s been reborn into one of her favorite otome games as the evil queen. Yes, yes, I know all very ordinary, but I homegirl was evil as fuck. I mean, she had somebody kill their mother. Anyways, Pride decides she’s not going to do all of that. Instead, she will protect her kingdom all while preparing her allies in case she goes terrible. What I liked most about this manga was that whenever she helps someone, she is supposed to do something horrible; they have a dream about what the game version of her did. Cool right.
Title: Black Rose Alice [Vol. 1-6]
Author: Setona Mizushiro
Genre: Manga, Paranormal, Vampires, Horror, Dark romance
I ate Black Rose Alice up. It was the perfect mix of gothic horror and dark romance. The makeup for her vampires is so original. It added so much plot to the manga. The characters were so complex. They all had a story and depths. I couldn’t decide whether I loved or hated Dimitri (the male lead). I’m a sucker for unrequited love, and I felt for him, but some of his actions were not okay. Alice, Alice, Alice, she is…something. I liked her personality, but again decision-making skills are partially nonexistent. I can’t condone her relationship with a child. The emotions this manga drew out of me in six volumes are astounding.
Until the next post,
