Demon Diary

Synopsis
.
.

Gods and demons wage a neverending battle with the mortal realm as their battlefield. As with most longstanding feuds, the reasons are no longer important--hatred is a way of life. But it is foretold that one would arise who could restore harmony between gods and demons. Enter Raenef...heir to a set of demon royalty, he is hardly courtly material. The demon king assigns Eclipse to be his tutor, to mold Raenef into proper demonic shape. The two begin a journey of discovery and are soon joined by a human knight and a god-blessed priest.


Now for my review!!!


The Manga This week was found on this site...

MangaPark: Demon Diary

It isn't the first time I have mentioned this site.. I hope you all like it as much as I do! Anyhow... They put out a summary too so I'll post it here!

Summary

From Tokyopop:
Gods and demons wage a neverending battle with the mortal realm as their battlefield. As with most longstanding feuds, the reasons are no longer important--hatred is a way of life. But it is foretold that one would arise who could restore harmony between gods and demons. Enter Raenef...heir to a set of demon royalty, he is hardly courtly material. The demon king assigns Eclipse to be his tutor, to mold Raenef into proper demonic shape. The two begin a journey of discovery and are soon joined by a human knight and a god-blessed priest.

From Mari Lex:
As a demon lord in training, poor Raenef just doesn`t seem to make the cut. With his unbelievable innocence and neivity, not to mention unbearable cuteness dispite trying to look scary, he only agreed to become a demon lord for the free food. Will he ever become a successful demon lord???


The site relies on others to review it I think... so I posted what they have listed as the summary. (literal copy and past of the things written... so that isn't my spelling.)
As for my review.... I feel like this is a really good series! 

It is complete so there is no waiting to see what happens next.. It is a little "all over the place" but not in a way that makes it hard to read. It is like we get flashbacks from the characters which is really hard to draw in a manga without getting all confusing!

Here is an example of the art...

Eclipse is so sad all the time!!!

Here is another example... these two are the Raenef demons... But only one of them is truly alive!
You have to read to find out what one though!


As you can see the art is really good! Not only that but the story is good too!

Now to rate it

On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being a "perfect-must-read" rating I give this...

It is rare that I have nothing to complain about with a Manga... This one would have managed that if it had not had the few times I got confused with it. It did clear up during the chapter so it wasn't too bad. It would have been better if it had something in the beginning of the chapter to let you know though since it took a few frames in to figure out. I looked up the books on Barnes & Noble...

Barnes & Noble: Demon Diary Vol. 1


I know it says "Item is available through our marketplace sellers." but if you click the "new and used" thing right under that it has places you can buy it from... I also shared it just in case there is information on the page you can use to find someone who sells it that isn't kn the list on the new and used pop-up thing. Happy Book Hunting!!!

Well that's all for now!

Hope you Like the review... An hope I have sparked an interest in "Demon Diary" for you.

As always... Thanx for reading what I've written!!!

Have an amazing day!!!
