Anagle Mole
by Fukuchi Tsubasa

[ Demographic: SHOUNEN ]
Luchiru, a Majin who lives underground, was sent to the surface to spy on the humans. He needs to gather information on how to defeat the humans... which they believe to be powerful and dangerous beings!
(1 chapter read as of the date this blog entry was posted)


Motivation: (What Made Me Check It Out)
Well, I liked the mangaka's other work, Takkoku!!. And the plot has somethign to do with humans being more superior? Interesting xD
Curses: (What Seems to be Bad About It)
The dude was on the States but the main setting suddenly changed to Japan. Does the setting always have to be in Japan? =_= And how the hell did he manage to have a homestay there =_=
And... *sigh*... every freakin' shounen debut chapter has to start with the heroine needing rescue? =_=
Praises: (What Seems to be Good About It)
The plot's so unique xD Humans are "superior"! Haha!
I love the idea of using "Fear" to make the stronger ones feel so inferior xD Also on what drastic effects "Misunderstandings" and "Misconceptions" can cause xD
Bias: (What's Keeping Me Hooked to It)
A tough younger brother who tried to rescue his sister. Daaaw. Got me very touched =3
Fangirl: (What I Love in It)
Luchiru's adorably hilarious!!!!! xD Him freaking out when he thinks a human tries to harm him are just so cute xD Watching him being so amazed on civilisation and technology make me want to cuddle him xD Hahahahahahahaha!
Nostalgia: (What It Reminds Me of)
There was another manga with a somewhat similar plot (similar in a sense that the protagonist finds humans pretty threatening) but... I can't remember x_x
It might've used some shounen cliches, but the story overall has been pretty original. The characters are fine, the artwork is cool, but the best in this is the humor. xD The wild ideas and assumptions that the protagonist makes out of fear and misconceptions were so... out of this world xD Hahaha!
Though I fear that the protagonist will only panic on the harmless parts, but act otherwise on the dangerous scenarios ^^; (In other words, this kind of set-up will most likely repeat on succeeding chapters =/) But it would be nice if this gets developed with the protagonist realizing those misconceptions (and he'll be in quite a dilemma if he ended up being attached to his new "family)). It would also be cool if another character like him becomes part of the cast, or we get to see the world he used to be in.... oh it could get really interesting as long as it won't be episodic ^^ But for a starting chapter, it was good ^^
