I noticed that there wasn't a review for this yet, so I will write one!
First of all, Doll is probably one of my favorite manga series.
The manga focuses on short stories with a few reoccurring characters and their experiences with these humanoid robotic "dolls" who do all sorts of things for whoever owns them such as housework or even sexual favors.
The stories are very unique, some are funny, some are sad, and some are very dark. Chances are if you don't like one story, you may like the next one because of the wide variety.
The art is very interesting, Mitsukazu Mihara has a
very unique style. I first discovered this series actually by seeing an article on her artwork in an issue of the Gothic & Lolita Bible. However, sometimes the proportions are a little odd and the hands often look weird. But overall the art is very detailed and some of the pages in between chapters are very beautiful.
Its kind of hard to talk specifically about characters in this manga just because there are so many and they're all quite different. Most of the characters are interesting though and there are a few reoccurring characters with good development.
I loved reading this manga and I have even reread it a couple of times and gotten the same enjoyment out of the series. I would recommend this to anyone who likes one shots or just wants to read something dark or something a little different than the usual.
What did you think of this review?
