Two girls start attending a new school and find themselves responsible for the care and feeding of monsters! 

I've been super intrigued by this manga, because I couldn't quite work out if we'd be dealing with dinosaurs or dragons or some combination of both, and it sounded like an interesting new series! I have to say, this first volume certainly delivers on the interesting part! The inside cover has plenty of interesting and useful information on the world of the series and how it works and what Tamers do and so on, which piqued my interest before I'd even started to read!  

Straight off the bat we meet Sora and Ion, who are thrown in to the deep end and tasked with looking after a monster that lives on the school grounds. Ion is kind of scared of the monsters but they seem to like her, she appears to be the best at taming despite being young and untrained...I kind of got "Special Snowflake" vibes from her though, so I guess we'll see what's in store for her. I'd actually quite like to get to know Sora better next volume, she's in a different programme to Ion which could be interesting! 

Tsukiko...I kinda felt for her, it was nice for her to get such a heart warming chapter but she's hilariously bad at naming the monsters, she's another character I'd like to get to see more of in the future! 

This initial volume was fun and entertaining, the monsters are drawn wonderfully as are the settings. It kind of reminds me of Godzilla coming and destroying buildings and cities...and then just inviting his buddies over and hanging out. That's what the world reminds me of anyway. This volume lets us get to know the characters and meet a couple of the monsters inhabiting the world as well as getting osme background on the monsters and how everything works! It's certainly an interesting and fun start to a series!

  1. Many consumers not familiar with Breitling often fear that they will end up purchasing a Fake Breitling watches without knowing it. How likely are you to get a Fake Breitling watches when you aren't looking for one specifically? Well first of all there are numerous places online that sell Valentino handbags. Most of these sites are from Asia (where Replica Valentino Handbags are made) and are pretty clear about the fact that they sell replica watches.

  2. I've had this manga on my 'to read' list for a while now. Like you, I was really intrigued by the monster, and wondered if it was a dinosaur or something else. I'm glad that the series has some background info on the world. A lot of the time I can lose interest in a series if there's not enough worldbuilding, so I think I would really enjoy this one. I've been seeing a lot of unique series pop up lately though. One that I've really enjoyed reading is Freak-Quency. It's set in a world where a popular RPG has been banned because some of its players have gone missing. The MC's brother is one of the players who have gone missing, and during her search for him, she discovers that the game is still being played, and that the monsters from the game have entered the real world. She has to take part in the game, and face all the dangers involved in order to try and get her brother back. I definitely recommend trying it out if you're open to more action oriented series.
