Rave Master Vol. 2 by Hiro Mashima
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Nobody does comics storytelling like the Japanese. Some 400 pages in we’re still meeting new characters and we haven’t really gone anywhere story-wise. Plotwise it’s a pretty standard journey plot a la Journey to the West, Dragonball, or even Pokemon. Haru, our main character, is battling foes with nonsensical magic/karate and joining up with other youths who have other insane powers. This volume introduces us to Ellie, a typical tsundere heroine who leaves destruction in her wake. Overall it’s fun, but we’ll see how it goes since it’s looking like the plot itself probably isn’t going to matter as much as the journey.
