In a fantasy world, with slight RPG-like element, the demon king has been revived and it is up to the Subjugators class to find him and slay him before it is too late.
Follow Truza, a young Subjugator, on his journey to slay the demon king along with his teammates he makes along the way. However, there lies a dark secret that his teammates must never know, regarding the Subjugator class.
Yakushoku Distpiari is a new twist to hero archetypes, some people classifying it with the "dark hero" label, but this is not all it is.
The main protagonist is what you'd imagine a dark hero to be, and like all seinen mangas, there are girls in underwear, abundance of naked skin and high levels of moe, BUT this is where it differs; these tempting elements do not change the protagonist. It has become cliche for the male protagonist to become stupid with lustful desires, OR to not be affected at all, the author has created a character that fits perfectly in between.
Now talking about different parts of the manga, story wise, you'll get hooked if you enjoy mainstream shounen-type of plot lines. It is certainly engaging and action based, but it makes everything more of what it is by adding the element of mystery to the setting and characters, making the reader really look forward to updates.
Art is a subjective point, differing from person to person, but this manga does not lack nor does its rating go down because of it. It is very detailed, and even has a relateable game-like feeling to it.
The characterization is what I highly regard this manga for; the main character is certainly unique, but I admire the stoicness of the character and how it remains static.
Overall, even though the manga has just recently started, I give this manga a rating of 10 because I see it having the potential to be a long term serialization. I would love to follow along with long journey to come.read more
At first glance it looks like a story about a character with something wrong but then a lover eventually changes him, but that wasnt the case. This had me in for an emotional roller coaster with highs and low, It had me crying in a corner for half an hour in just 4 chapters
Personally the shock factor in the story got me and i was a bit skeptic on the RPG relations at first but it was a good reason for the characters actions. A Tragic manga that at every deaths gave me chills up my spine, highly suggested for gore/Loner MC/death lovers
In a fantasy world, a realm with more levels there are two major forces. One the overlord who is chosen every xxx years and the subjugation forces. The subjugators are some form of party leaders who apparently need to have strong alies in their party. I will not say why their power depends on it as it would spoil the horrific power they have called Hero Compensation. First we meet our main hero, a very depressing looking guy with a cross scar on his face under his left eye . Cold and really like a puppet he is set out to fight the demon lord. Now from the first chapter, heads up there might be a spoiler in the things I am about to say. From the first chapter it seems like his teammates easily die, yet he does not.
Anyhow this new world that we are introduced in is filled with magic, it's basically an RPG like setting magic, swords you know the usual.... and this is what makes it so scary. Since it is an really rpg like setting, everyone has their role set since birth. If you born with the job of a painter, your soul will yearn to paint. There is no other way around it.
Now many of you might be interested in the comparison of this to log horizon and SAO, but I can tell you the only thing they might have in common is the game like setting. Other than that it's almost the opposite. But you will have to find that out yourself. For now I will leave an more in-depth article in the description, with more spoilers and more things that might make you want to read it if this wasn't enough to.read more
I feel like this manga had much more potential, a shame that it ended with only 5 volumes. To be honest I was pretty fucking disappointed, but actually despide this series being as short as my asian dick. I felt like I enjoyed this as much as other big names like tokyo ghoul and ubel blatt. The only thing I think it was missing was character development and some twists, it was pretty fuckin obvious of what was going to happen, any person who read enough manga would have predicted the whole thing. This could've been one of the top names, they had everything man...
