Whenever you played Sonic or Mario as a child, did you ever consider what the boss felt? Perhaps he was in the middle of drinking his tea when you so rudely barged in. This short manga explores the idea of that, and shows how stressful it can really be to be evil (and the boss of minions touched by your every word). The ending of it was unexpected, and though the hero's words could be taken in many different ways, I found myself smiling toward the end of it. If you fancy yourself as a video game fan, particularly a Nintendo one, this one shot is for you.
Demon King's shock is shown in quite a funny manner, but other than that, the art is nothing special. I am, however, quite impressed with the captured hero's clothing. It's quite a nice outfit. I know, it has nothing to do with this review.
But seriously, look at it. That headband is pretty kickass.
There are no underlaying, deep emotions in this story. It's really just there for "teh lulz". However, the woes of the poor Demon King are captured quite well in his words to the reader, and you can either walk away from this manga with a newfound respect for villians or walk away wondering where you can find this guy's castle solely for the purpose of beating him up.
Worth the Read?: Seeing as it's only nine pages long, what do you have to loose? I say go for it, especially if you're a fan of video games. read more
