Synopsis

Yuiko Kubozuka is a high school girl who loves animals. Unfortunately, animals hate her and flee from her whenever possible. So when a new classmate, Leo Aoi, turns out to be a scary guy who resembles a wild animal than anything human, she is intrigued. Not only because Leo has an affinity with animals which she envies, but also because he isn't the wild animal that he seems to be. He seems to hide a very sweet disposition behind his scary features.

Or so she thought. The truth is revealed when they are attacked and Leo immediately behaves like a wild animal and gets violent like a blood-thirsty animal, just to save Yuiko.

Will Yuiko be able to tame this wildest of all animals or will he be just like the others and flee from her? Or the better question, will she flee from him?

Included one-shots:
Volume 1: Fly
Volume 2: Saboten Summer Surprise (Cactus Summer Surprise)

STORY:
Its a romance between a girl who gets along well with people, but is hated by the thing she loves most (animals)
and a boy that is great with animals, but has a beast-like personality that makes people think that he's completely unapproachable.
I have to admit that I was trying my hardest to avoid reading this, because I'm not into the whole beauty falling in love with beast story.
But something about it just made me want to take a quick peek,
and I ended up reading the entire thing
lol I couldnt stop.
I didn't expect this story to have such a well balanced mix of romance and comedy.
There's read more

EDIT: Has been rewritten!!

Beast Master is a very unique manga. It is my absolute favourite manga of all time. I have reread it several times and I still laugh or cry while reading it. The manga is simple, cute and sweet and as such, I will try to keep this review simple as well.

Story: 9

The story is cute and well written. There is also a few darker scenes but it only makes the story better. I haven't read many shoujo where there's a guy who goes on an insane killing (not really) or fighting spree when threatened. It's definitely different. There are also a lot read more

I'm primarily an anime viewer and as such read few manga. I'm practically comparing this manga to anime I've watched regardless of how different the two are. Beast Master is one of my favourite manga/anime I've viewed.

STORY 10/10

Beast master was a really cute story and I was always in high spirits whilst reading it. I found the romance good and the setting for the story was different to what I'd seen before.

It was also relatively short so it didn't manage to bore me even though I wasn't really used to reading manga. It actually left me wanting there to be more.

ART 10/10

It was really good. read more

Just to note, this manga also comes with two extra short stories: “Fly” & “Cactus Summer Surprise” (but I’ll get to those in due time).

That cover is a lie. Leo isn’t tied up by chains nor is he a violent criminal. The story goes that when his parents got married, a zoologist as well as a doctor who really doesn’t have borders (as Toki puts it but we’ll get to him in a minute). When Leo was young, his mother passed away and that was when Leo met his maternal grandfather for the first time. Apparently, the mother ran off and got disowned by her read more
