Manga PUlse 409: Perfect Saga

The local con season has come and gone and that means it’s time for more manga selected from a grab bag for Tim. This time the manga roulette has brought Tim to The Saga of Tanya the Evil. It’s an isekai where the protagonist is a salary man on earth who enjoys firing people. One of his firees takes this badly and shoves him in front of a subway train. In the afterlife, he meets various gods who want people to believe in them so they send him into a world of magic to be reborn as a girl soldier. The characters is lazy and obnoxious and fun to watch. It gets a Crackers.

Weltall then does Perfect School. Two twins, a boy and girl, are just switching schools. We don’t know why this has happened but we start to get hints. She begins by identifying a girl in class who appears to be ripe for psychological manipulation. She convinces the other girl to change her hair and this begins the protagonist weaving wicked strings throughout the school. It’s not very engaging or up our alley though the premise pushes it up to Borders.

We’re back with more requests and we’ve been given some more video game adaptations in a series we’ve already done a number of. Tim has Zelda – The Minish Cap and Phantom Hourglass. Having actually played the Minish Cap, Time has a bit of insight into the game story. It’s faithful and does well by skipping over the tedium that wouldn’t translate into a manga. The same volume covers the events of the Phantom Hourglass. It’s fun and lighthearted enough to enjoy with or without having played either game earning it a Crackers
