Devils' Line, Vol. 1 Reviews

  • Reddish

    Cuando empiezas a ver un nuevo anime y te deja con ganas de más hasta tal punto de empezar a leerte el manga... ¡Vaya vicio! Y mira que la historia no es la más novedosa ni los personajes los más originales, pero a mi me tiene enganchadísima, oye.

    I was so excited to read this series despite the comparisons it has received and I'm happy to say it exceeded my expectations! Not only is the story interesting and the art beautiful but the mangaka does an amazing job balancing out the dark atmosphere with very funny moments. I'm in love, one of my favorite new series to pick up this year so far!!

    is a lot like

    So we have this college girl who is saved by a half vampire/demon guy and falls in love with him.

    The art is not so good, the romance is too much and it has a lot of gore and mature themes, so why am I rating this one 3.5 stars?

    Well actually there is a simple reason:

    Kind of reminds me of Tokyo Ghoul in art style and topic, but focuses more on the relationship between a human and a "devil." I like how it hales back to some vampire classic stories but some of the relationship stuff is a bit icky. Tsukasa is too weak for my taste, too.

    I enjoyed this one! I rated it lower because it was a pretty standard (but well-done) YA/new adult-esque romance. The "devil lust" crap was stupid, but I think, again, pretty standard with a lot of manga. It definitely felt like it was only added as a subplot to excuse any hyper-sexualization of the female characters, but surprisingly, it didn't detract too much from the main bulk of the story because you don't see that happen very

    I enjoyed this one! I rated it lower because it was a pretty standard (but well-done) YA/new adult-esque romance. The "devil lust" crap was stupid, but I think, again, pretty standard with a lot of manga. It definitely felt like it was only added as a subplot to excuse any hyper-sexualization of the female characters, but surprisingly, it didn't detract too much from the main bulk of the story because you don't see that happen very often, in my opinion (one little part at the end that involves a younger girl, but it doesn't go beyond the vampire commenting on her appearance in a creeper way... but this adds to the character's history with the vampires, if you want to look at it that way).

    Although, the story was very reliant on Anzai and Tsukasa's relationship, and might be considered by some to be too insta-love, I think they work really well together as a couple. I personally just... liked their relationship? Might be a "it's only me" thing. (And side note: I'm starting to weigh that a little more with manga. I don't mind a little bit of insta-love because it is

    common in a lot of shorter manga series, and based on the plot/titles of the manga, you sort of know what you're getting into anyway... so I forgive it more easily. But I do feel like it shouldn't overtake the story's main plot -- if you're forcing the two love interests to make out as much as possible over general plot development, that's obviously a problem.)

    The vampire lore was kind of cool? But it will definitely need more development in future volumes. In fact, I think that's another reason I rated it lower. The dialogue/story jumps between chapters were a little confusing, and I can't tell if it was because of a bad translation, or the writing itself. But I think the characters definitely make up for it -- Anzai especially! (He just hit all the right notes for me -- I'm excited for more of his story!) And I got attached to Anzai and Tsukasa pretty easily. Even though Anzai was the "white knight" to Tsukasa's damsel-in-distress a few times, he wasn't patronizing about it, which was very refreshing. You can tell Anzai is aware of how hard a human/vampire relationship will be, but that he wants to be with Tsukasa if he can/she wants him to be. He cares for Tsukasa in a way that allows her the choice to either continue or stop the relationship. I just like that he basically starts hanging out with her because they both know they're lonely. It was sweet.

    The setting was nice, too -- the story occurs mostly during winter/Christmas, additionally with very minute character interactions, so it's very soft and quiet. Mixed with the plot's slight darkness, it created a really great atmosphere that played on the loneliness of Anzai and Tsukasa, as well as their time together. (I feel like the Japanese just really understand this concept of "winter loneliness" so well! I notice a lot of mangaka use winter in their stories in this way, and it's one of my favorites styles.) The action sequences always seemed to come at the end of each chapter, so we were allowed some downtime in-between to appreciate the "stillness" of the world.

    I also didn't dislike the artwork, at least as much as other people apparently. It was a little awkward in certain spots, but I liked the weirdness of it.

    So basically, Anzai/Tsukasa and the general atmosphere/setting are where it's at for me, but stars knocked off for the confusing writing. Already picked up the rest of the volumes in this series, so I'm sure I will get to them soon!

    So this is basically

    Vampire, though tamer and with more focus on the human girl instead of the half-

    vampire.

    Small gripe that bothers me more than it probably would most people; the font choice is terrible and it looks worse than fan-made scanlations.

    Compared to the Japanese version:

    Also,

    It's digital so it's not like it costs more to print.

    I didn't know anything about

    coming into it, aside from its being a

    (boys' comic). I fully expected a violent horror story, and definitely got that, but

    expect a rather sweet teen romance between our half-vampire hero Anzai and Tsukasa, a college-aged girl he meets when he saves her from another vamp. There's certainly a lustful aspect to it, especially on Anzai's part. There's also cute and cuddly romance like them exchanging little gifts, hugging, and bickering

There's certainly a lustful aspect to it, especially on Anzai's part. There's also cute and cuddly romance like them exchanging little gifts, hugging, and bickering in Tsukasa's tiny apartment, which ends up being their hangout spot.

    It's pretty emo, too, with handsome Anzai frequently agonizing about how he's suddenly developed an increasingly irresistible thirst for his girlfriend's blood... and no one else's.

    There's some amount of nudity in the early part of the story, and (sigh) a sequence where Tsukasa is sexually assaulted, requiring Anzai's heroic intervention. Most of the art focuses on the characters' faces, and on the whole I feel this manga treats Tsukasa respectfully. One might wish for her to grow a spine, to be more like a PNR heroine, especially since this hits a lot of the same notes as a PNR does: secret vampire hunting force, a protagonist who walks the line between human and supernatural, a heroine who is the only person who stirs the hero's heart, and so on.

    The art's a little off at times, characters' heads being too big, or their hands too small. But the infrequent battle scenes are pretty good, and the balance between "light" and "heavy" content is handled well. I'll be reading more of this.

    Unattractive artwork, unoriginal plot, instalove. Basically an illustrated Twilight clone but with lots of blood.
