Mod Note: This review was initially posted for the one-shot, Konjiki no Gash Bell!! Gaiden, and was subsequently merged into Doubutsu no Kuni.

Hahaha I may be overrating this gaiden but it truly is a must-read for Konjiki no Gash/Gash Bell/Zatch Bell lovers. It covers a bit of Gash's life after becoming the Demon/Mamodon King. It's funny, heartwarming and undoubtedly awesome. It also shows how Gash still has strong feelings for ex-partner Kiyomaro. If you loved zatchbell as much as I did then you'll love the reappearance of of past characters, like Tio, koruru, and my personal favorite... the great Umagon.

I was indecisive between scoring this a 7 or an 8. But I have decided it must land itself an 8. The art style is definitely not for everyone. This isn't a story about some cute and fuzzy animals. There's sweetness to be sure, and tears, but it is the struggle of life with some really strange looking critters. Many of whom have oddly human faces, I suppose to more easily put across their expressions.

But despite that oddness there's still something engaging about reading this. All centered upon a baby who brings something unexpected to the world, more than just being a bundle to be read more

Even though the mangaka claimed that this story was never done before in my opinion it does give a bit of a tarzan feeling in the beginning. Other than that the story is great and he still manages to stay unique. The art is in my opinion a bit childish which fit the story but also very detailed at some parts. He really makes all the animals spring to life and the characters stay as funny and great as in zatch bell.

I wouldn't recommend it to every one, because you have to get used to the art and the type of humour of the read more

“I think it would be nice if all animals got along”

Welcome to Animal Country, a world filled with millions of different kinds of animals. Some eat plants, some eat meat, some eat both. Each animal has their own unique voice they use to communicate, but they are unable to understand the voices of animals that don’t use their cry. In this world there exists no universal language. Thus, it is a savage place where the strong prey upon the weak and one must fight to survive. It is a planet much like the one called earth, the only difference being that on this planet read more
