So when I went looking this Manga up I got reallllly confuzed... First off... MyAnimeList only lists it using it's Japanese name "Onikirimaru Den" so I went to Crunchyroll where I read it... I'll give a link to that in a moment... I then looked up just "Onikirimaru" on MyAnimeList and viewed all results. I decided since I hadn't found it the first time I would look up the picture from Crunchyroll... Ya... That wasn't so easy. Here is the picture from Crunchyroll...
And here is the image that MyAnimeList has for it...
I'm sure I don't have to point out the problem.... Anyhow... I finally figured it out and so now I can tell you what I think... Yay!!!
First off.... Here is the link to the Manga...
Crunchyroll:The Legend of Onikirimaru
Next I would normally put what they say about it but MyAnimeList used it for their description so there is no need.... I can just get right into what I though!
So it is well drawn... I only read the first 5 chapters for this so I will tell you what I can. I had hoped it would fit in nicely with the Anime that references this but it doesn't. In the anime they really don't seem to have a clue how the sword came about but it was with a human. In the Manga it is "born" with a child who is supposed to be human but is feared more than a demon from the moment it comes into the world... This sword gets given to a demon in the Anime but in the Manga it is used by the child who really is a grown man from the moment of "birth"... And that child uses it to kill demons.
Ya see what I mean by they don't fit together... That was a bit disappointing but it was a good manga so I didn't mind reading it even with all the differences!
I gave it a 6 only because of my personal disappointment... If it had matched up even a little bit more it would have been an easy 8... if it told a background that fit totally it would have been an 9.
It really isn't bad so you should check it out! You have to be a premium member to read it though because it got licenced so mangafox doesn't have it up anymore. I looked to see if you could buy it and found that I couldn't find it. If you find it can you let me know where so I can post it as an update? Thanx so much!
Well that is all for this post.... I hope it didn't put you off too much from wanting to read it since it really is a good Manga.
As always... Thanx for reading the review!!!
Have an adventurous and fun filled day!
