Game->Fantasy/ Discrimination against Beast & Monsters/ / Potential Romance?/ Some Ecchiness d=(´▽｀)=b
If you are here because of the cute girl on the thumbnail, dive in! I think you will enjoy this art quality of this manga with a tiny bit of surprising fanservice ;)
Upon picking up this manga, the term VRRMO & F.A.O.(Fantasy Adventure Online) made me thought that this is gonna be a SAO-wannabe; however, the story concept of this manga is something brand new as it dives upon the topic of discrimination between beasts and humans. Thank god~
While reading, I can see that the flow of this manga isn’t as
erratic (pretty controlled imo) as some of the fantasy or isekai manga; nonetheless, there are still some confusing sections. Maybe, this might be caused by the difficultness of adapting a novel story into a manga? I have not read “Next Live"’s light novel, but I assume this is the case. This happens a lot when a light novel is adapted to a manga. Thus, I am going to give it a -1 for this reason and another -1 for potential error in the future.
Yet, I still want to see how Marius, the male MC, and Anett, the female MC, are going to solve this hatred between the two groups.
Art: 10 (11)
The art is amazing. It is rare to see a manga with such art quality when it is adapted from a light novel(made me think that I was reading an illustration book). Initially, I thought the thumbnail and the chapter one’s splash-art are just clickbaits; however, I want to raise my beer to the mangaka for his consistent effort. Just a quick example, when Anett cried (chapter 6 ~pg20), the detail of her face was astounding! Would give it higher than a 10 if possible~
I love the 4 main characters’ setups, which are:
1. Marius->has superior magic power from his old game
2. Ben-> the dog-head man
3. Anett->got a special power:monster tamer)->strong power that even the lord wants
4. Dullan->the orc
On the other hand, some of the side characters' appearance or setup seem questionable because they seem rather pointless. I don’t see their purpose of coming into a story and immediately die after. Using the same reason again, the mangaka probably skip some explanations since it is adapted from the light novel. Thus with a -2.
Oh well, if you just read this manga, you will easily get hooked and catch up to the latest chapter. That is why I give it a 10. YET… it seems like this is a monthly manga and translated team for this manga is nowhere to be found ;/ yikes…(thus with a 1)
Overall: 8 (could be an 8.5 or 9 because of the necessity of waiting)
This manga has so much potential on its story, and the art is amazing. Yet, due to its publication progress, it is hard for the reader to wait and be patient ;/ Come on translation teams!!! Pick this manga up for us~ (╯✧∇✧)╯
