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 characters read more

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 strange twist comes when the read more
