Doll to Master is a story about a genius magician who was intrigued by a rumor about murderer and tried to solve it himself. There's some (kind of) one-sided romance as a side story.
It's a surprisingly solid story for a one shot, with very little loose ends. The case was solved in the end, the culprit was revealed, along with an explanation from the said culprit. The plot twist at the end was good, the culprit identity was quite surprising too. The side romance was hardly necessary, though. It's barely there, to be honest. It was more like one-sided crush than romance. Although the
little revelation at the end made the whole crush thing quite fitting.
The story has three main characters: The Genius Magician, The Best Friend, and The Cute Assistant. Well, with this only being an one-shot, it's not surprising that there's hardly any room for characterization.
The art's good, in my opinion. That's all I can say.
It was quite good and enjoyable for a one-shot. Maybe something to watch while you're waiting for your food at some restaurant.
I recommend you to read this if you:
- Wanting to read a good short story
- Like pretty boys character
- Like stories with subtle BL context
- Like stories with plot twists at the end
