[ Manga Discovery ] Cerberus


Cerberus
by Fukui Takumi

[ Demographic: SHOUNEN ]
A weak boy, who always loses, and his childhood friend were attacked by a monster. In order to save his friend, he agrees to become a Grave Protector.
He won't be weak anymore... but he won't be human anymore either.

(2 chapters read as of the date this blog entry was posted)

POTENTIAL: B- (PRETTY GOOD!) FAVORITISM: 3 Hearts (LIKE)

Motivation: (What Made Me Check It Out)
Cerberus? .... Mythology *_*
Curses: (What Seems to be Bad About It)
Typical weak boy always rescued by his female friend... at first.... 'coz he will later become strong with the help of supernatural elements in order to play hero.
And stuff happened too fast.
Praises: (What Seems to be Good About It)
A hero who fights, but doesn't care about losing. He's not ashamed of his weaknesses. Pretty unusual "previously weak" main character.
And it's cool that they didn't bother to waste time on explanations at a bad time (because the situation's really really urgent).
Bias: (What's Keeping Me Hooked to It)
Cerberus.... doggie!!! =3 Wait, badass mythological doggie? Even better!!! xD
Fangirl: (What I Love in It)
The main couple's pretty sweet. I hope she admits it already... and for him to realize it already =_= Shounen! You always torture me with this!!!
Nostalgia: (What It Reminds Me of)
Heroman (but this isn't bloody, and the hero didn't exactly become stronger... he just got a strong robot)
Overall:
Pretty much your typical shounen series... but the action scenes seem bloodier (literally and figuratively) and the main characters aren't so bad. It can get better depending on the new characters showing up and the stuff that the hero would need to do.
