Ragnarock City is something unique, that I have to give to the mangaka, is that bad thing? I will let you judge it for yourself after this review.
For starters the story sucks, we may even argue it doesnt have one.
MC (Reichieru) arrives to a city (Ragnarok) where science and magic go hand in hand, so they say, but the manga never dwelved into this, the city itself, is actually an interesting setting never well explored...
Aliens, robots and humans living together, bland, but what I found kinda neat is how they explain almost every girl being naked, by showing of their "goodies" they prove that they are not aliens, or robots (or half robots), and that allows them to differienciate from the rest of its population... stop and think about it, it does seems a kinda of interesting topic, "with legs to grow".
Imagine a world where there is soo much mischieve, races trying to sell and get upmost of others, a society of lies and secretism were the most common thing is having a guy you though you knew but then come again, and he never was what you though he would be... Simply put being naked is the proof you are being honest about what you are, for a manga of this nature, I think the mangaka created some potential with the topic, but if only the story was better.
I suppose being naked may come with benefits, again never dwelved into, but at least there are some reason for all the naked bodies circling around.
Just dont expect anything of the story, in short, it is like random episodic chapters of how the MC is living and adapting to the city, trying to hide the secret behind her true race, but these really arent interesting, due to the fact they are too short, plot development is almost zero, many situations happen, each only with a few pages to develop.
And while a tiny bit better, the cast is really forgetable, the lenght of the manga combinated with the story doesnt allow for anything else.
You wont hate the characters but neither you will love them... it would be interesting if this had became a series, instead of a one-shot, that could had given the time for creating a better, more developed cast.
Totally indifferent, couldnt care less...
Now what you wont be indifferent to is the bodies, the faces, the gorgeous art and the full colour!!
This is the selling point of the manga, despite being old, the art is still just great, with that nice classic feel to it, that doesnt detract from the experience.
This is the reason you will be giving this manga a try, the beautifull art, and while at it, you will probably be fooled, you may think, "how nice, good art, now I really want to see all those H-scenes..." The maximum expoent you have of these, if you can call it so, while in the chapters, is a girl doing body massage to the MC, and that only goes by like 2-3 pages, and doesnt lead to anything pervert, at least on-screen.
So yeah that is a downer, but still there is always the gallery after the chapters with some nice shots (fappable for sure).
The art makes up for it, I guarantee it, you will have many stuff to keep your eyes busy on, while reading the manga~~
That is the major part of the enjoyment you will get, dont expect anything more, just beautifull nude art, with some nice teases, here and there (and by the end), and a city with a setting that had alot of potential left to explore. It was a pleasent experience all summed up.
Thus while I give it a 5, I would reccomend the manga to anyone with the right mindset to enjoy it. That is, to see some really beautiful nude art and maybe by the end get some gorgeous fap material.
Either you are a full time pervert, or just a part-time one at that like me, if you want some a full color manga with some nice nudism, just to appreciate it by what it is, look no further. read more
