What that means for CAG:
I’m stoked! This read is in the Top 10 of my Manga Reading List. 🙂
The Magical Girl is not “oh-so-sugary-sweet…” This chick will kill you.
The read just starts out in a horrific way (yeah baby!). The main male protagonist, Kogami Kii wishes for something to happen in his mundane life. Sometimes one should really take care in what he/she wishes for. In his case, Kii should’ve just been satisfied. Well, his mundane life has changed for the worst. A little girl dressed in Goth clothes with a weapon in her hand shows up at his school and goes on a killing spree. Saving his childhood friend Fukumoto Tsukune, they are on the run.
Run as you may
These bad-azzed bytches are all over the place killing! What’s going to happen to Kii and Tsukune? Where did these killer Magical Girls come from and why? These are the questions that will be answered as the story unfolds.
This read will capture you on the first 10 pages. Like Magical Girls in a killing form? This read is for you! Totally recommend it if you’re into the Horror Genre.
Three volumes are slated to be released onAmazon.com. You can pre-order these gems and sit back and wait patiently for your order via UPS or USPS.
My dear fellow Manga Readers and MangaWhores; please order the volumes now that it’s licensed in the US. K? Let’s let the Mangaka know that we appreciate the work that was put forth and arevery happythat we can now order the English-translated work. 😉
That’s it in a nutshell.
