トモダチ×モンスター 1Imagine an extremely dark and sadistic version of Pokemon in which children accompanied by their monster friends battle to the gruesome endNow as twisted and intriguing as that sounds Tomodachi Monster really falls flat The art style is not appealing the pacing is shoddily fast and the story appears to substitute depth for amusement and shock value With all of the amazingly diverse well drawn well written and philosophically interesting manga in circulation this just really cannot begin to compare Ultimately this is not a manga series I will be continuing on with And it looked so promising Tomodachi x Monster is a manga series that is a mash up the survival horror genre with Pokémon style monsters who must fight each other to the deathGOTTA KILL ‘EM ALLA mysterious voice beckons Narimiya Wataru a lonely sixth grader luring him into the mountains outside his rural Japanese village There Wataru meets a strange new friend “Peke” a bizarrely cute creature with cross stitches over its mouth Wataru soon learns that there is a hidden world of monsters that partner with young children and together they enter horrifying death matches Watch what really happens when kids with no conscience get hold of cuddly little killers to do their bidding I love the uniue idea of this manga but it can be a little too Gordy sometimes I might think about continued to read this series Best OMGi fall in love with this manga so muchit is scary enuf when monster search for a master's soul to share I probably never would have stumbled across this series if I hadn't been browsing an online sale and had the blood stained cover of this volume catch my eye I've always been a fan of taking tropes and twisting them so the concept of a Pokemon esue world where children use their monster friends to do horrible things intrigued me And wellI mostly got what I expected and not a lot else Tomodachi x Monster hits all the bullet points of your standard kids and their monster friends series Boy stumbles across monster friend in woods the two become inseparable other children challenge him to fights hell there's even the lack of an explanation for what these creatures are where they come from and why everyone is suddenly finding them all at once Of course the twists come into play fairly early The duels usually end with someone's gruesome murder normal people can't see the monsters etc Probably the most interesting element added is the explanation for why some of these kids are turning into sociopaths and I really hope Inui builds upon that plot point because it's got a lot of disturbing potentialThe monsters themselves are interesting ranging from the totally not a Pikachu lightning critter the main antagonist has to one that can animate dead bodies to one that seems purely defensive and There's a good bit of creativity on display here with their abilities coming into play in unusual waysHowever Tomodachi x Monster for all its promise is a series in desperate need of some explanations not only of what the monsters are and why they're there though those are important uestions too My main concern is learning about Carnival apart from the we're the bad guys placeholder that's about all we've gotten so far Psychotic children with super powered friends can make for good antagonists but we as readers need to know why they're all working together and what their goals are Because as it stands so far they don't seem to have anyI'm invested enough to see if volume two addresses these uestions If it does Tomodachi x Monster could well become a GANTZ type thrill ride of violence underscored with some real social commentary But if these uestions remain unaddressed for very long this series will lose its chance to establish any meaning behind the carnage and that would just be sad Time will tell Crossing Pokemon with Battle Royale Vol 01 style gore seems like a good idea for biting satire Unfortunately the shocking violence of the gimmick is only used to draw readers into a very conventional battle manga story There's no humor or parody or even irony It's just a Pokemon type story where haha people die violentlyI read I Hate Fairyland Vol 1 Madly Ever After earlier the same day and it downright bored me with its similar combination of innocent childhood icons and ultra repetitive ultra violenceIf you're determined to try a book in this weird genre I think Magical Girl Apocalypse Vol 1 at least manages to mix some energy humor and social satire into the bloodshed This 3 volume manga gives you a view of what would really happen with Pokemon monsters Not for the kids Was not ready for how violent this was going to be His a huge breath of fresh air I can't wait to see Easy simple read with an overly simple storyline and underdeveloped characters
