ANN Review: Maoh Juvenile Remix (Vol. 01)

New review posted at AnimeNewsNetwork over this past convention-busy weekend for the first volume of Maoh: Juvenile Remix. You can read this series online over at ShonenSunday.com

I’m really interested to read the second volume of Maoh because I’m pretty stumped on where I think the plot is going to go. The apparent antagonist is interesting too. He reminded me a lot of Griffith from Berserk, as I mentioned in my review. I’ll admit I did chuckle a bit at how dramatically the story emphasized the lead’s ability to make others say his own thoughts out loud though. Yes it’s a pretty crazy power to have but compared to so many other shonen-leads before him, it seemed a little initially silly. Could mean lots for future events though, I’m eager to see how he continues to use them.

    I didn't really like this series until volume 2 (thanks for putting it online, Viz!). There the series really seems to come into it's own. Volume 1 seemed like a lot of set-up (how many chapters does it take to establish the main character's power?) but by volume two the story not only dives into the conspiracy it also becomes much more of an action series (and a really good one at that: the action scenes are exciting and reveal character).

    Like I said, I didn't really know how to feel about this series until volume 2, but now I wait on pins and needles for the next chapter to go online.
