Monster Soul - Vol. 1

If you’re a fan of Fairy Tail, then you’ll want to check out Hiro Mashima’s latest manga work, Monster Soul. In fact, if you’re a fan of shonen manga in general, you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of this snappy little two volume series. Predating his more famous franchise, Monster Soul shows off Mashima’s distinct style (and the character designs are somewhat familiar too…) in a rip-roaring tale of monsters trying to survive in a world where humans are dominant. The twist – that the humans are the bad guys – has limited mileage, and the story lacks the sparkle of Fairy Tail, but this is still an entertaining and easy to collect series for completionists with shallow pockets.

A fairly simple and fun little story, which shows off Mashima’s style, if not the full range of his wit and charm.
SCORE: 3.5/5
