I enjoyed Mayme Angel a lot. When I read the first two volumes, I thought it's a lovely story, and happier than the other mangas of Igarashi. But on the 3rd and 4th volume, many sad things happen and it's amazing to see how a story can contain both inoncent and cruel characters. It can surprise you seeing teenagers using guns, but I guess in the time of the story, that was common. The author makes us think about some subject like revenge, the possibility on managing problems with talking and without guns, etc.
The only thing I disliked in the manga, it's its ressemblance with
Lady Georgie's anime (another manga illustrated by the same author) in some parts : the doctor who loves alcohol, the babies who stop crying when you call their full name (like the dog in Lady Georgie), Eva who does the same things as the girl who was in love with Arthur in Lady Georgie, etc. Other than that I found the story original and I love some characters, like Alman or Beavery.
What did you think of this review?
