Manga Monday- The Heiress and The Chauffeur volume 1 review

Manga Monday- The Heiress and The Chauffeur volume 1 review

25987110
Today’s post is on The Heiress and The Chauffeur volume 1 by Keiko Ishihara. It is the first in a duology. It is 192 pages long and is published by Shojo Beat. The cover has the two main characters on it looking at the reader. The story is told from third person close of the two main characters moving one to the other as the story goes. The intended reader is someone who likes cute shojo stories, historical romance, and pretty art. There is no foul language, no sexuality, and very mild violence in this volume. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- At an all-girls school during the Taisho era in Japan, rumors swirl that heiress Sayaka Yoshimura is having a forbidden love affair with her chauffeur, Shinobu Narutaki! Sayaka scoffs at the rumors, but could a romance between master and servant actually be brewing?
Sayaka wears a crimson ribbon that signals she is at the top of her class, and her classmates all revere her. So when Narutaki ignores decorum and breaks school rules to protect Sayaka, will she stand by him or dismiss him as the school demands?

Review- This is a very cute story. Sayaka is a cute heroine and Shinobu is very sweet. They were friends as children and now they are young adults with all the expectations of that on them. The stories in this volume are mostly about Shinobu being seen as less than because he is servant and is from a poor background. Sayaka is very modern because she believes that people are not where they come from or how much money they have. So she gets into trouble with her opinions but she gets rescued by Shinobu a lot. But it is a very sweet, cute story and I look forward to the next volume with them.

I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.

Manga Monday- Claymore volume: The Silver-Eyed Slayer

Manga Monday- Claymore volume: The Silver-Eyed Slayer

Today’s post is on Claymore volume 1 by Norihiro Yagi. It is the first in the long running Claymore series. It is 187 pages long and is published by Shonen Jump Advanced. The cover is a close up of the main character Clare. The intended reader is someone who likes dark plots, high action, and strong female characters. There is mild foul language, no sex, and lots of violence in this book. The story is told from third person close of the main character. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- In a world where monsters called Yoma prey on humans and live among them in disguise, humanity’s only hope is a new breed of warrior known as Claymores. Half human, hlaf monster, these silver-eyes slayers posses supernatural strength, but are condemned to fight their savage impulses or lose their humanity completely.
A village is gripped by fear and paranoia when a Yoma claims six lives. The Claymore who is send to slay the creature isn’t what the villagers expect at all. In fact, she seems more monster than human.


Review- A good start to a series. The story starts with the villagers arguing about sending for a Claymore but as much as they fear the Claymores they fear the Yoma even more. Clare comes and she is a quiet warrior with no interest in anything more than her prey. The blurb does not give anything about the story. We get some world building with more than just the monsters. We get to see what happens when a Claymore loses the battle to control the monster within. The second main character is a young boy who Clare saves and wants to help her with saving others but as he is just a human the only thing that he can do is cook for her. I look forward to seeing where this series is going to go.

I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.

Manga Monday Review- Kare Kano: his and her circumstances volume 1

Manga Monday Review- Kare Kano: his and her circumstances volume 1

Today’s post is on Kare Kano: his and her circumstances volume 1 by Masami Tsuda. It is 176 pages long and is published by Tokyopop. The cover has Yukino, the main female lead, on it. The intended reader is someone who likes shojo, high school manga, and humorous love stories. There is no language, no sex, and no violence in this book. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- Yukino Miyaqzawa has it all- perfect grades, looks, the admiration of her peers. She’s the #1 student at her school… at least she was until he showed up. The new boy, Soichiro Arima, one-ups her in every department. And the worst thing about it is that he’s sincere! With her ego in jeopardy, Yukino will do whatever it takes to regain the spotlight, but falling in love was never part of the plan.

Review- A cute and funny high school romance. Yukino’s inner thoughts are great but I wanted more from Soichiro. Towards the end of the volume we get to see some into his tragic past but I want more character development from him in the next volume. Yukino has some great development in this first volume. And I believe that her changes are real. She has to deal with someone getting to see the ‘real’ her that she is not proud of and what that means to her. Of course young love makes everything more dramatic but it was a fun read and I am looking forward to seeing where this long series goes.

I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
