A visually striking manga that follows a young human girl Somali and her 'father' a golem - one of the guardians of the forest. Somali to Mori no Kamisama follows their travels as the Golem seeks to reunite Somali with humans in a world full of 'monstrous' anthropomorphic beast-men.

The setting of the story is rich and deeply fleshed out. It follows the large, peaceful, anarchic society of the beast-men, a generic term for dozens of non-human races, who peacefully coexisted with each other for centuries until they ran in to humans. The beast-men eagerly invited the human's to join them in their paradise, but the read more

"We're all equal in times of need."
I came across Somali and the forest spirit yesterday when i was on reddit looking for high fantasy setting manga recs, i ended up binging all the current chapters because it was almost everything i have been looking for, when lately i just seem to come up short in my findings! (28/27.5 chapters at the time of this review)

Its literally gorgeous, the art is outstanding and i'm constantly in awe at the landscape detail and art style. read more

This is my first review here on MAL, so feedback would be appreciated.^^

If I had to describe this manga in one word, it would be: Soothing.
A simple slice of life anime or manga is something to watch or read while not concentrating. It's perfectly calming. And the artwork perfectly adds to that feeling.

The story is simple in its design and it slowly develops like an rpg. At every point, you stumble across another hint for the final destination of your quest. The same thing happens in this manga. A young girl named Somali is shackled and left alone in a forest for (yet) read more

Somali and The Forest Spirit is like a cold beverage on a hot day.
You're covered in sweat, eager to rush something cold down your throat, then after you take a big gulp out of that sweet beverage, you let out a cry of utter satisfaction.

This manga revolves around a world, in where humanity declined, and non-humans have taken over.
Somali, a human girl, was lost and bound with chains in a certain forest, until that forest's guardian, a golem, finds her.
The golem then leaves the forest, which he spent all of his life protecting, to search for the girl's family.

Now the premise might sound like read more

Somali and the Forest Spirit might seem like a cute, father-daughter bonding story, and there are lots of warm, cute, touching and happy father-daughter moments up there, but in truth - it's a really sad and dark story of survival.

The story takes place in a fantasy world where various "civilized" monsters and humans exist. There was a time when the two races lived alongside each other in peace, but then the war broke out and humans, who are believed to be the aggressors, were defeated; banished to the uninhabited lands and hunted down to the point of extinction!

Somali - a human girl, can be considered read more
