About Devil's Candy Manga Volume 1

Devil's Candy manga volume 1 features story by Bikkuri and art by REM.

Devil’s Candy, the popular webcomic by Rem and Bikkuri, is a hilarious action-adventure that follows Kazu Decker and his science experiment, Pandora, as they navigate high school with a ghoulish supernatural twist.

At Hemlock Heart Academy, science wiz Kazu Decker shows off his skills by creating a humanoid girl named Pandora. But in a world of monsters and mayhem, surviving high school is harder than getting good grades and lessons often turn violent at Hemlock. Fortunately for them, Pandora’s stoic nature and seemingly limitless strength, paired with Kazu’s luck, knowledge and friends, get them out of trouble almost as often as it gets them mixed up in it!

Science projects at Hemlock require more than a fizzy volcano to impress the class, so naturally Kazu introduces them to Pandora, whose violent streak and impressive strength cause more destruction in his already chaotic school life. Braving runaway science experiments, howling apparitions and a deadly fashion show, Pandora learns that life at a devil high school is a day-to-day struggle for survival.

Proof that Westerner Creators Don't Get Why Manga is Dominating

by -

I almost didn't buy this, given my initial concern that the artwork seemed to me to look more like a western artist imitating the manga aesthetic, but since the premise in the cover blurb sounded amusing I was willing to give it a chance. I did find out later that it is indeed a western work - it's actually Viz taking an ongoing webcomic and publishing it in book form. I could have saved myself some cash by looking up the early chapters online and discovering for free that the authors can't help but fall into many of the same traps that are plaguing outlets like Marvel and DC. The artwork's pretty good - better than many of the series I read and like - but it can't make up for some abysmal writing choices that simply shatter any sense of escapism I was able to muster. I'm sure there are some people out there who will like this, but I'm pawning off my copy at the used book store and not touching any future volumes with a ten foot pole.

Interesting

This is an example Good conversion taking it from a web comic to a manga and not spend any money how do I recommend you to pick this up to I was reading it in my local bookstore and I fell in love with the first situation leading to do some research and find the webcomic that let me down a deeper rabbit hole so I’ll support series anyway It kind of punch men feel in how it’s transition is going The characters are ok there not hop off the page levels of a hilarious us to me but they service the story very well with a handful of stand out like gyro who is morbidly entertain one of the first pages of him is him trying to peer pressure someone into giving him their hand.

Good, light-hearted fun

by -

Rem and Bikkuri have built a magical world inspired by classic horror tropes and a cast of distinct (and adorable) characters, very much akin to Little Witch Academia. Its art outdoes some of the current comics and manga out there in the market and the overall story is low stakes, but fun for what it is. It isn’t a masterclass in writing or story, but don’t let any overtly negative reviews steer you away from enjoying this romp of a comic.

For young readers

by

Wasn't a fan of this one. Really wanted to like it because it looks Halloween like, they even did a Frankenstein skit on the first few pages. What I didn't like was that it was like babysitting kids and they keep getting hyper and then crashing, then repeating until their parents take them home. The story really didn't go anywhere. It is very much a school life story line.

One of my personal favs, its just all around a good time :)

by

Honestly, some of these reviews don't know whats up, Devil's Candy is a great, spooky, and interesting adventure set in a school which reminds me of a combination of Welcome to Demon School Iruma-Kun with a dash of Monster high. All the characters are lovable and quirky and the world and school setting has strong but simple world building. Not to mention the art! Its amazing, one of my favorite manga of 2021, and I'm excited to see whats in store in the next volume. Its lighthearted and an easy read, so expecting it to be some crazy Berserk or Vinland saga of edginess and complexity gives it a bad wrap. PLEASE pick up this book if you enjoy lighthearted spooky fun, don't listen to some of these people in the reviews :)
