Well, I am not the best reviewer, hell, this is my first review on the site. But I digress.
Sasurai Emanon is the sequel to Omoide Emanon, and follows the adventures of the titular character, Emanon, one of my favorite characters in any form of media.
At the time of this review I have read the first volume, as that's the only thing available, but since the first volume is sort of a stand-alone story, It's what I'll review.
The premise is simple, follow the journey of Emanon while she travels around the world. Nothing too complex or exciting happens throughout the story, and
we don't have an exciting climax, just a normal day in the life of Emanon. Yet, the author is able to make things interesting, it's always fun to see the interactions between characters and know some of Emanon's vast back-story.
There's not much to say, really, the art is unique and sometimes can be breathtaking, and the fact that it's all in color also helped reach that 10. Just look at this one and Omoide's art and you'll know what I mean.
This is where the manga really shine, Emanon is definitely one of the most interesting characters to ever greet me in any entertainment form, and I am glad to have read this mangas just for the sole fact that it made me "meet" Emanon.
But Emanon is not the only interesting character, the kid is fairly entertaining, but her friend is another mysterious character that could have another spin-off manga just for herself.
I enjoyed this manga a lot, I was expecting it since I read Omoide Emanon, and my expectations where high. And it did not disappoint me. So far, the first volume is small and you can read it and re-read it fast. And the story, like I previously said, is a stand-alone, although it says in the end "To be continued".
This has become of my favorite manga series, Emanon is an amazing character, like I said before and continue saying, and it makes up for the entire manga, the art is incredible and the story, although nothing special, it's enough to drag you into it and present you with a fairly interesting premise "What would you do if you were immortal?".
I recommend this manga to everyone who wants to see a more interesting and mature story than those romance-comedies and battle mangas that flood the market. It's well worth the read.
