“Beast Master” is a two volume Manga (6 chapters) about a girl, Yuiko, who loves animals, but they don’t love her because she smothers them with too much love! Incidentally, she stumbles upon a strange boy one night, Leo, and after an interesting interaction she discovers he is the new transfer student! They become fast friends but what secret is he hiding! And can Yuiko tame the beast within?
I thought this manga series was adorable. It was different than I expected (and the cover and title definitely make it sound like it’s going to be much more intense than it is). But it’s just a fluffy shojo (the best kind!) so it’s quite perfect in it’s simplicity.
I love the characters and while the plot is thin and kind of odd it works for such a short series. I approve.
