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.
(Currently 67 chapters are out, 63 if you dont count the extras)
This is a manga that focuses mostly on comedy and it happens through episodic plots or plots that last 3-4 chapters. And it works. Since the story is about a bounty hunter and a sheriff, short episodes of them catching bad guys really works for this manga, hence the score being an eight. This manga is very, very, VERY funny and witty at times. It knows its not a serious manga and uses that o its advantage. It creates semi-ridiculous situations (though not tooo ridiculous that it becomes off-putting) and comments upon them
The art is pretty good, pleasing to the eye, suits the characters and fits in with the whole western-cowboy atmosphere. It is very clean and sharp. Its not too extraordinary or special but it is prettyy good. Its not a ten as it is not absolutely fantastic and not the main focus of the manga, but it suits the manga very much. Plus, there is always room for improvement.
Possibly the greatest part of this manga. They are all unique, lovable and of course hilarious. We have our sheriff Evan, who keeps his emotions to a minimum and shows his feelings through very little things, but since we are often told what is thinking, we find him 10x funnier, since his face do NOT represent his inner thoughts at all, except when he tries to look cool (which is all the time). Then we have our second protagonist, who we are introduced to in like the 3rd chapter, Phoebe Oakley the romantic interest)/ Im not gonna go into her personality too much, but ill just say that she is funny unique nd a great match for our protagonist. Now, one of the best things about this manga is the fact that the narrator is also a character. He always comments on the sometimes ridiculous situations with the funniest lines and lets us know what the protagonists are thinking. The father is also a major character who offers his hilarious advice and intake on life throughout the series.
Even the minor and secondary characters are unique, funny and add to the story.
As you can probably tell im really enjoying this manga. It is such a fun read. It brings out lots of laughs and smiles.
