The Demon Queen Sheila has massacred over half of the human population, holding no regard for life. With no end in sight to her reign of terror, the people elect a hero to vanquish the Demon Queen and her monster kin. However, the chosen hero, Exa, is not exactly humanity's champion: he values not only human lives but those of monsters as well.

During his journey, the idealistic Exa saves a monster girl from a dragon, completely unaware that this girl is the Demon Queen herself. Intrigued by a human who would save one of his species' enemies, Sheila poses as a meek, lovestruck monster and joins him on his journey—all while planning to stab him in the back. Even as she is continuously exposed to Exa's ideals, Sheila stands firm on her plan. Yet, she finds herself putting off her original mission time and time again; perhaps these fake feelings have grown into something real...

Another great manga that I stumbled over looking for some new manga to read. I can easily say that it is among my top 5 manga.

- The characters ...

The series has good worldbuilding. how the author uses episodic chapters to enrich the world was well done. but sadly thats seems to be the author's only decent point. The story is that the MMC who is the Hero needs to kill the leader of monsters who is the FMC. Unknown the MMC is that the FMC is some human looking monster and since he doesn't know her apperance but the FMC knows him she tags along just for fun. Along the way she falls in love with him however whilst the ...

I making this review based on both the first part (this one) and the second part (Superior Cross), due to it should be viewed as a whole. Superior is a well balanced mix of Action, Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Romance, Shounen (would add the label comedy as well, even if it´s not dominating the manga). So let´s talk a little bit about the ride that was Superior, and why I enjoyed it so much.

Story: 9/9
I quite enjoyed the story. What first appear to be a classical "good vs. evil" based plot, soon grows into something much more complex. In a world where monster and humans has ...
