Kahrel demands that she 'creates the "people" that make up the world' for him if she wants to leave. The terrified Marie then has the dolls she's made in past come to life, and are bearing down on her!
Warning this review may contain spoilers- Ever wanted to know what it would be like if you had the power to bring dolls to life, honestly, I haven't but that is what this manga is about. A young girl, Marie, is a doll maker who is kidnapped by Kahrel...then things really start to heat up including the fact that all the dolls Marie has created previously were all crazy due to Marie's mental stability. Anyway better get started on the actual review xx STORY It was all over the place really, half the time I had no idea what was going on due to the pacing of the story being messy. Nothing was explained too well which just left you wondering what you had just wasted the past half a hour reading... My main complaint though is how the ending was carried out, everything just seemed rushed and nothing really built up to the 'plot twist' other than subtle hints that didn't really impacted the story. ART The art was messy and most of the time quite weird but I could argue that this was done on purpose to try and link into the psychological aspects of this manga, and how it shows the mental stability of the characters slowly degrading but that is going too far into it, right? In a weird way I did like the art style but it did take a bit of getting used to and probably the best aspect of this whole manga. CHARACTERS The characters are hard to explain, they are weird but that is understandable considering the nature of the manga but there wasn't much to them. I would have loved to learn more about the puppets and what sort of emotion Marie put into them but we didn't see much of that and even the main dolls were just bland until the end scenes where we found out a bit more. There needed to be more development for all the characters as it just felt a bit halfhearted in a way. In conclusion, I probably wouldn't recommend this manga to anyone but it was an interesting one-off read :) AngelBeatsYui PS - This is for the monthly marathon October 2016
Y'know at first glance, I really had this thought that this short series could have the potential to be a decent horror manga because the art style was pretty good enough and the characters were not that bad. It also gave me The Shining or Melanie Martinez music videos vibes lol. However it failed to be a decent horror manga, due to the fact it wasn't great at deep diving into the characters minds like there should have been room for improvement. I just feel the author made the characters dull and seem rather unimportant to the story. Yeah it's just a shame that I had high hopes for this 11 chapter manga to be better than any other horror manga out there but not this time unfortunately....
