But she's searching for the sister who killed her family, and she doesn't care how degrading it gets: She will use Shuichi to accomplish her mission...
For the most part the author is trying to give his readers a decent plot for his readers. Shuichi has a interesting power, turning into a powerful fursuit mascot as well as let people jump into his body. The mascot element reminds me alot of the villains from Smokin Parade, although I think Smokin Parade uses the element better to be honest. This is a seinen series so the author definitely doesn't shy away from the gore. SPOILER) The aliens in the series seem to play a huge role in the story, especially with collecting the coins for power-ups. I have read up to chapter 19, so I have no idea where the story is going to go now. As for the art, it seems okay enough, although I think the author could improve if he wanted to. One of those people that expects a lot when it comes to art style. And now we come to what I consider to be a major downside to the Gleipnir series. It isn't from the fact that Shuichi can be hesitant and cowardly or that Claire can be a bit aggressive at times but the fact of fanservice within the series. Whether its the female characters who ditch their clothes when they're about to enter the fursuit, or choose to not put clothes on during a scene that bother me the most. Feels like the author goes hard with the fanservice and its not to my liking. If this were a harem series like Rosario Vampire it would fit the tone but it doesn't. It feels like the same exact thing that the author of Elfen Lied did with his female characters. Its all done for titillation, which is something I have grown tired of as a fan of manga and anime. Whatever happened with having respect for the female characters? For the love of God, why can't we have more authors like Norihiro Yagi, the author of Claymore, with the respect he gave to his female characters? That is what I want with this series and I doubt it will happen, so from this point I have washed my hands of the series. To those who want to read Gleipnir be my guest, but don't expect the fanservice to change.
