Sheriff Evans' Lies is an hilarious romantic comedy set in the Wild West where we follow Elmore Evans, a sheriff who everyones loves and respects, the terror of the criminals... and that only became a sheriff because that supposedly would make him become popular with the girls.
Very soon we get introduced to Oakley, the main girl and romantic interest of the story. She's a bounty hunter too pure for this world who likes Evans (a feeling he shares for her), but since they are considered rivals by the other, and most importantly, both are completely clueless about love, they just fail hard in their romantic
adventures, this leads to lots of funny moments that never fail to deliver laughs.
The format so far is episodic, and features Evans (and Oakley most of the time) in his daily work as sheriff, either trying to capture criminals, patrolling, or just doing stuff on his office, always leading to really funny situations between the characters.
This manga also has a narrator who explains some of their internal thoughts
and adds quite some comedy, delivering at times some lines to mock the denseness and failures of the characters. There is also Evans's awesome father, who appears in his memories to deliver very interesting life words that never fail to make Evans look incredibly cool, but ultimately completely fail in the uses for romantic purposes.
I recommend to give a try to this manga if you're looking for a romantic comedy with lovable characters and lots of laughs.
Honkan Evans no Uso is one of the best philosophical manga I've ever seen. Believe me, if you read this, you will gain some life knowledge for you to apply in real life.
1. Story: 9
You have this MC, a sheriff name Evans who has a knowledge of a real man which he learned from his Papa. He lives in a wild west era. He struggles to find love, and want to be popular with girls. No girls can match his manliness. His struggle makes the story is a top tier. He's basically just a sad man.
2. Art: 9
The art matched the story, which
is a romcom in a wild west. the character styles are also on point. I can't say much but I can guarantee you that you can fall in love with the main characters with their appearance only. Bear in mind that this is not an Ecchii manga (it is not for you if you seek that genre).
3. Character: 10
All main characters are likable, no exception, even the bad guys. I can say that it is nicely written.
4. Enjoyment: 10
Well, if there's a chapter update. I will immediately read it, no delay whatsoever. In conclusion, I enjoy it a lot.
Hoankan Evans no Uso: Dead or Love or Sheriff Evans' Lies follows a semi episodic format with most conflicts lasting 1-3 chapters each with many being one off episodes that do not impact the actual progression of the story. Some do make come backs or contribute to a story over all, but that isnt the point. The real point is that each arch is really funny, and that they are short, easily consumable and well paced. No arch feels too short or too long, they are just that right amount to make a premise, follow it up and deliver the punch line.
titular Sheriff Evans is an absolutely hilarious character through his dead pan expression being belayed by his excessive need to feel superior and look cool. His dynamic thoughts and constant worrying is an excellent foil to the supporting cast who generally are oblivious to his true nature and view him as a hard ass sheriff who gets the job done. This dichotomy allows everyone to feel really interesting as they each take different impressions of the sheriff which he in turn will likley completely misunderstand which then will make comedic gold.
This series handles its comedy well, and its world with a surprsing amount of accuracy to its inspirations, that being the classic spaghetti westerns of the united states. And as a big fan of western narratives, I can say that this is the best parody ive seen of that era, from the subversion of classic stereotypes like the noble sheriff, or the femme fatal to re-imagining of classic characters, this series is a great love letter to those classic stories. It even handles romance in a way that is quite enjoyable, as it is used as a means to further engage in comedy instead as the result of said comedy.
if you love a good comedy, great characters, and solid writing in an easily consumable form then please, you owe it to yourself to read this.
