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 story is great. It is funny, amusing and cute. It is however not all that intense action I hoped for, but when there is a fight, it is exciting enough to keep me reading. I rate the story 9.
- The art is simply lovely, and you can see some hint of Final Fantasy design in the clothing with all the straps and details. Also the cover art is fantastic! Absolutely outstanding, and thus rated 10.
- The characters read more

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 read more

MOD EDIT -*The review contains spoilers*-

Superior is a delightful mash of fantasy, adventure, and romance, where the powerful Demon Queen Sheila, who personally killed off one half of humanity falls hopelessly in love with with Exa, the Hero ironically assigned with the mission of killing the Demon Queen. Sheila disguises herself as a weak monster and tags along with the Hero on his journey. The story is basic at first, with Sheila and the Hero meeting companions and allies, new and old. Later on, Sheila creates a copy version of herself to act as Demon Queen while she travels with the Hero, but a read more

This manga blew complete ass cheeks. During the whole time reading it, it was as if someone was motorboating a shit-caked pair of ass cheeks right onto my screen. The demon queen has a fetish for mentally deficient people and has the brain capacity of half an acorn her self. Art was decently standard, and the plot is generic. Nothing much to say about this manga except for the fact that the reading experience is the equivalent of eating unwashed ass.

And since MAL requires a longer review but this manga practically has absolutely nothing else to be reviewed that can't be summed up efficiently read more
