Mother Keeper; My personal favourite manga, I absolutely adored this. I'll give fair warning, you can definitely see how the artist improved over the years but by the end of it, the art is lovely. Also sadly, Kawaii Corner had their paws on translations, decided "who needs a proofreader anyway" and refused to do redraws. The series is a grey vs gray morality type. Ricalna comes from the slums and is the adoptive son of the leader of a rebellion against the "utopian" government. Ricalna gets caught and starts to see the world from the view of that government and has to decide who he really wants to save here. Ricalna is a pretty big emotions character and not really a fighter, most the fighting in this manga is done by the female cast (who I adore) or the old men (because the author has a preference for old men). It's fun and a pretty light read. It's 72 chapters long and translations have just completed, I read it when it was still translating and managed 40-50 chapters in 2 days and I'm a slow reader. Monochrome Factor; From the same author as Mother Keeper, this is the more shounen school manga. It's a fantasy story at heart and a very good one, but the start of it does feel like a lot of early 2000s manga involving teenagers. The manga is a shounen-ai, and if you're familiar with the comedy anime adaption, you'll know that. The manga took a much more serious route with it and the ending is actually one of my favourite manga endings ever. The story itself is about Akira, a teenage boy who really doesn't want to be a protagonist to begin with but has to because he's forced to. He's a jerk, he'd probably let his friends die if you really gave him a choice. Akira has to stop the evil villain from destroying the world because he's not given any choice in the matter. The cast is solid, once again with a lot of emotional stuff with the male cast, meanwhile, the girls do a lot of fighting, though the boys do get some my favourite scenes go to the girls. For the most part, it's a pretty standard series but I really enjoyed it surprisingly even though it's not really my style. Croa Chimera (also translated as Kuroa Chimera): The newest work from the same author, showing off the great standard of art they've achieved. A fantasy series based on people who can turn into animals/half animals/maybe have a snake tongue, with a doctor in the main role. The series is still very early on so it's not quite got into the actual plot, but it's still nice enough to just enjoy the art and spot things from his doujins. Sennen Meikyuu no Nana Ouji (Seven Princes of the Thousand Year Labyrinth): Again quite a new manga but one that very much throws you in at the deep end right from the start and plans to just fill you in as you go. Eight people awaken in a castle filled with traps with the simple task of whoever makes it out gets to be king, if more than one makes it out they can vote on who they want to be the king. Naturally this is going to cause problems because some have very different views on how they want to become king and not all of them are above murder. It's a manga that constantly feels like it's going because the characters are constantly being pushed forward, as they'll drown if they stay still too long. It's a very fun read though there are some questions as to how long it can really last with only so much of a castle to journey through.
