The first manga recommendation of 2016! 😀 When writing this post I realized that I have actually not posted any manga related post since September, I am so sorry about that! I will try even harder to become a better blogger! > <
I usually read manga on my pad now, and the first thing I see when trying to find a manga (to read) is therefore the cover. I try to not judge the manga by its cover, but Seiki no Mikata’s cover really triggered my interest! Do not pretend you did not get curious as well ໒( ͡ᵔ ▾ ͡ᵔ )७
English title: Ally of Justice!/ For Justice and Love/Mikata of Justice
Arthur/Artist: Miyuki Mitsubachi
Genres: Action, Comedy, Romance, School Life, Shoujo
Volume and chapters: 1 volume and 4 chapters
The manga is about the dirt poor high school boy Kotarou Miakta, who constantly is getting into fights (not because he is a delinquent, even if he does look like one). He just lost his job, because he is misunderstood by his actions, but “S” comes to the rescue and offers Mikata a new job as a “hero”. But what does is mean to be a hero? Follow Mikata’s hilarious journey on becoming a hero! (︶▽︶)
What makes this manga worth reading is the twist that Mikata turns into a hero who has a pink suit and has to shout embarrassing lines when he has come to the rescue and before he launches a secret attack! (⊙ヮ⊙)
The humor in the manga is also very good! The conversations between Mikata and S is just entertaining. Not to mention the way S treats Mikata. (We are both sadists (′ʘ⌄ʘ‵) ) The parody parts of the typical superhero, their transformation and attack is also something you just have to cringe a little but at the same time laugh at it! (๑✧◡✧๑) Σ(ＴωＴ)
When it comes to the characters they are not very original. You have the typical frightening and good looking main character that is mistaken for a delinquent, even though he is in fact very caring. Then he meets and falls for the beautiful and nice girl, Sendou-san, because she is not afraid of him.
Spoilers: and for S you have the typical good looking guy with sister complex XD He is also the typical cold hearted and S character that likes to tease/bully the main character, but he also has a warm side.
The art is surprisingly detailed! It is also very clean and neat. Maybe a little typical shoujo manga art with everyone so tall and handsome, and the girl with big round eyes. But hey, it is a shoujo manga. However, I really like the (different) expressions to the characters and that their feelings transfer to us the readers. Trust me, you will laugh at Mikata’s reactions to various things concerning being a hero, but at the same time you will feel sorry for him ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
If I had to point out any negative thing about the manga, it would be that it is too short. Seigi no Mikata! do have it share of drama/action, but some of it felt a little rushed and I would love to have more background story of different characters. The ending could also have been better, but again it is due to the fact that it only has 4 chapters.
But to conclude: go and read the manga now! It is hilarious and heartwarming! It also gives you a little dose of feels on the way 😉
Just some spoilers after thoughts:
-I was a little bit disappointed with the ending, because what happens to Sendou-san’s confession?!
– I would love to know more about the others heroes. Especially the Lilly ward hero, Shirayurion.
