About Dragon Quest Monsters+ Manga Volume 1

Dragon Quest Monsters+ Manga Volume 1 features story and art by Mine Yoshizaki.

Kleo dreams of becoming a gallant, monster-slaying hero, and when a twist of fate sees him whisked off to a strange and distant land, it seems he's finally got his chance. But the king doesn't want Kleo slaying monsters--he wants him training them, preparing mighty creatures to fight against the forces of darkness. Unfortunately, the kingdom's a little short on monsters at the moment...and Kleo's journey begins with only one sassy slime to back him up. It's a quirky quest with one majorly reluctant hero!

Dragon Quest Manga..in English?

by

This manga takes place a very short time after the end of the Gameboy game of the same name. Kleo has been summoned by Watabou to Great Tree as the new Monster Master to help them with a considerable task. It has all the charm that you would come to expect from Dragon Quest.

The art itself is fantastic. After doing some research I learned that the artist of this did Sgt. Frog. I've never read Sgt Frog myself, but always found his style to be charming and it definitely shows here as he takes on Toriyama's style.

A great blast of nostalgic monster-taming fun!

It was a pleasant surprise to see this getting published by Seven Seas after having come out so long ago, and it seems like it was well worth it. The manga itself seems good and fun, and there's news of a non-Joker DQM game in the works so it couldn't have come at a better time. The original game was what brought me into the Dragon Quest fandom, so I really enjoyed reading this.

The story itself takes place after the end of the first game, with some bits almost seeming like a retelling of the original which is cool for older fans like me. But for those of you that haven't played it, the kingdom's hero Terry has gone missing, and our protagonist Kleo has been brought to this kingdom by Watabou to find him and save everything, but he initially seems reluctant and perhaps incompetent. If you have any kind of Dragon Quest experience you'll catch onto a lot of things here and there, but the story would likely be entertaining to those looking for a fun monster-taming romp.
