Synopsis

A legend says that the ghost of a girl stands on the top of an old Catholic church, inhabited by the Sagimiya family. Said family has a hateful rivalry with the Bijogi family, who manage a Taoist temple next door. In the middle of all this, Bijogi Taiga has had a crush on Sagimiya Anna, the demure daughter of the priest, since childhood.

Little did he know, the Sagimiya are involved in very un-Catholic activities such as trying to resurrect the spirit of Marie-Thérèse Charlotte, the daughter of the late French queen Marie Antoinette and who has a seemingly endless appetite for food. And since he has found out, he will have to "collaborate"—i.e. be the human sacrifice to that end. Nevertheless, just before the "ritual," Taiga decides to confess his love to Anna and is struck by a lightning bolt the second after. He miraculously survives without a scratch, but somehow finds himself in a body slightly more... blonde and feminine.

Hungry Marie is a series with a lot of promise. I was a huge fan of Beelzebub, and this series seems like it may borrow concepts from the original series. However, instead of raising a baby demon lord, the story focuses on a boy who fuses with the spirit of a former queen of France.

The artwork is pretty good, and the author brings back nostalgic faces in the forms of new characters.

Overall, I think this series is very enjoyable, and the character interactions so far are pretty funny. If you were a big fan of Beelzebub, then you may like this series as read more

First things first I love this manga, I believe that it not only is enjoyable but shows a great deal of promise.

Now for a more detailed analysis:
The story sets up a potential to be both relatively deep but still interesting (however as it has 18 chapters as of this review I can say no more) (6/10)

Art: The art is somewhat bombastic, dynamic and stylised, with the character designs constantly shifting for different purposes in different panels (i.e. comedy). This aids greatly to the comedy and can actually aid to the understanding of characters through visual expressions and is a great strength, however if you read more
