12 Beast Vol. 1 Reviews
This is a typical Monster Manga. Guy has hidden skills. Gets taken to a new world, is incredibly lazy, doesn't want to do anything. At the last minute finds a reason to be a hero and then a slew of fanservice. It's not a bad read, but it's nothing ground breaking.
12 Beast is the second series created by OKAYADO, the man who created the NYC best seller, Monster Musume. And just like Monster Musume, 12 Beast is chalk full of fan service and gorgeous monster girls, but this time it all takes place in a fantasy setting.The series is about Eita Touga, a young man who loves playing video games a little too much. He also happens to be a ninja who's been trained in ninjutsu techniques by his grandfather. Yes, a gamer has become a ninja. What has this world come to?During the first volume, we're introduced to Aero, a harpy who has a request for Eita. She wants him to help save her world, Re-verse, which is like a fantasy world that you can only get to by going through a dimensional gate. Her world is under attack by machines known as Gigas. Sadly, Eita only cares about video games and doesn't want to get involved. It's too bad for him Aero has no intention of listening and drags him into her world anyway.This series has a lot of action. While Monster Musume was pure fanservice-y fluff, this one appears to have something resembling a plot--even if it is kind of a cliche'd plotline. The story still isn't that serious, however. I have a feeling the plot is mostly there to deliver interesting bits of humor and titillation. Since OKAYADO is the one making this, I have a feeling we're going to get a lot more fetishy soon.Overall, I'd have to say this series isn't bad, but it lacks the charm of Monster Musume, which is oddly cute despite the fetish fueled fanservice. I did enjoy reading this, and I bought the other two volumes that have come out. I'll probably finish those two volumes and make a decision on whether or not I'll continue reading this from that.
Beware gratuitous Fan Service and torso nudity. That being said I felt like 12 Beast was a good intro to the series. In this single volume we get to see world building, character development, and plot development which is something special in a single volume of a manga. The story picks up really quick and the comedy is very solid. I'm a bit of an on and off fan of OKAYADO and this stuff fits (his?) previous work (Monster Musume) very well... with a lot more action. There are obviously some tried and true Manga tropes in this story so far and I can't help but feel a One Piece vibe to it (of course aimed at an older audience). If you're familiar with OKAYADO's previous works you'll know that some nudity is enviable in the story. On a side note I don't understand why none of the male harpies were put in the same clothing melting situation but then again I remember it's a manga aimed at a mostly male audience and shrug it off. Good Manga but could be better, I'll keep reading a few more volumes to see if it sticks.
Very fast paced with art that is sometimes unclear. OKAYADO puts his monster girl spin on a shonen action manga. For the most part it turns out well, but it isn't as good as Monster Musume. The character development is minimal and it goes from plot explanation to battle tomplot explanation until the end. I understand, though, that this was written and drawn at the same time as MM, which would account for the quick story and sometimes sketchy artwork.A decent start to a series, though. I'll give the second volume a try and see where it goes from there.
Quick thoughts: Ok I suppose but pretty generic/cliched. Reluctant hero (despite being trained/skilled beyond belief) transported to a parallel world to fight mysterious mechanical enemies for mythical, overmatched residents. The frequent over-the-top fan service feels tacked on, as opposed to Okayado's Monster Musume which is a full blown ecchi harem comedy where it fit the theme/point of the manga.
my favorite things: the video games references made me laugh,the harpies and world concept are interesting.too much boobies and fan service to really enjoy it.lots of action,but pictures were a bit unclear and not enough written to clear up what was happening. could have been good,but needed a little more. I may keep reading,depending on the blurbs for future volumes
Good first volume from the same author who created Monster Musume. I liked the main character and thought he was different from your average main characters in manga. I liked the fantasy aspect of it and the monster people that were in this fantasy world.
fan service for bird fetishes? lol the clawed feet and hands kinda creeped me out a bit. an entertaining if unimportant read. not dying to get my hands on he second volume.
definitely for older teen with an interest in the female form. very hetero-male. so, fan service. but, ultimately this gamer kid is actually a ninja.
