Devils and Realist Volume 3 by Madoka Takadono and Utako Yukihiro Manga Review

Devils and Realist Volume 3 by Madoka Takadono and Utako Yukihiro

I continue to like that there are 2 color pages of the characters when you first open a volume of the Devils and Realist manga.

The artwork is incredible. Some clothes and scenes and facial expressions of the characters are so detailed. Unlike most manga that have seen with the exception of BakumanDeath Note, Psyren, Dance in the Vampire Bund, and A Devil and Her Love Song. The artwork is quite excruciatingly one of the most graceful with very nice character posings and facial contortions of the characters.

Devils and Realist Volume 3 Story Analysis

One of the biggest key pieces of Volume 3 is the revelation of Camio being another of Solomon’s and thus William’s demon pillars. While all the other demons before Camio have been more than a little clingy to William. Camio is quite happy to keep his distance from William.

Making it seem very interesting and if not a little surprising. With Volume 3, have now become as curious as ever to who Solomon was and what he had planned. He surely left some legacy for his descendants or should I say incarnations but we are still not privy to that. It doesn’t help that Solomon is a rather charismatic character as seen so far in the manga.

Other than that Lamia, a demon, with Dantalion’s faction shows up again in this volume. I believe she is first introduced in Volume 2. It seems there is a running and greatly hilarious insinuation that she is jealous of Dantalion and William’s close to lover’s relationship. Quite the fun running gag. I’ll be nice to see more of that. Overall quite enjoying!

In general what have come to discover is that this series is for anyone interested in myths and supernatural battles on the lighter side. There is action but currently those scenes are mild but not really sure it matters when the story is filled with suspense and hilarious moments.
