I do not actually know where to begin with this one, but I will try. I felt that I had to write about this manga after finishing it a moment ago.
Due to reading a rather rough translation, most of the story content was a bit hard to pick up, but the central focus is on the titular Akazukin. A "little girl" who is trying to, well, you know the rest if you already read the synopsis. Along the way, she meets other demons and befriends them as they help her to reach her goal of being devoured by Mr. Wolf. There are humans that attempt
to stop her from achieving her goal, followed by other supernatural beings later on.
Yeah, you're reading this correctly. Still based off of Little Red Riding Hood. The story is unarguably the most far-fetched interpretation of the common fairy tale that I have ever seen in my entire life. And this is coming from someone that had assumed Hoodwinked would be the most unique take on the story. Oh, how I was proven wrong.
As far as other elements go, that is just the icing on the cake. There is tons of sex, brutal gore, story, rinse and repeat. Though this was all actually composed very well as I do think highly of it. I enjoyed the unique writing as the story flowed very well from start to finish. And, yes, I actually recommend you read it. Provided, you are an adult and have already seen most of your memories ruined by this point. However, if you do not regularly visit the internet and still have a lot of your innocence left, then I want to say you should hold off on this one, especially if you enjoyed fairy tales as a kid.
Never expected this to be the first manga I would read.
What did you think of this review?
