I'm sure some people will find this artwork satisfactory, but I personally thought it was overly caricaturized. There is intense angularity and hyper-exaggeration to the body shapes and heads. The goblins look like they have beaks. The muscles look ugly. The Fighter's broad shoulders look stupid. The Amazon's butt looks disgustingly triangular. Several of the breasts look tacked onto the torsos. The artist also contorts the bodies into unnatural poses in order to show off certain female body parts more prominently. Multiple times, there is gratuitous clothes-tearing and other forms of blatant objectification of women. This type of stuff doesn't do anything to strengthen the story and just makes all the characters involved feel more one-dimensional. In chapter 2, a pictograph within a rectangle is displayed in the center of the panels during moments when a character does a "move." I assume those pictographs were taken directly from the video game this manga is based on, but it's odd that they were only used for a single chapter and then were never used again (at least not that I noticed). The video game this manga is based on is a "beat 'em up" game, so it's not too surprising that, like, 90% of the action in this manga is just pounding through fights. There is an actual plot to the story as well as some non-fighting developments, but there's also quite a lot of fighting. The chapters begin with narration boxes describing the pertinent plot points for that particular chapter, essentially setting the stage for where the fighting will occur and against what type of monsters. The narration boxes are drawn as unfurled parchment. I found myself bored and almost falling asleep while I was reading this manga, though I'm sure it didn't help that I had just finished my 12-hour shift at my job when I sat down to read it.
