Loving it so far

by -

Got this to check out, I just finished it and really enjoyed it, I am looking forward to the next volume for sure.
It was really nice to see an adult acting like one, sometimes I feel its pretty rare in anime and manga, or they go too easy on them or let stuff they do wrong slide saying you tried and all that but when she messed up he corrected her and didn't sugarcoat it, but then he also encouraged her to do what she knows well.
She learned from his harsh scolding and is coming back stronger.
Pretty sure there is more to her "Master" then what meets the eye too, I look forward to learning more about him someday hopefully.
Its interesting, the age of science in its infancy(?) replacing magic, but magic still has its place.

A Magical Treat

The 'How to Treat Magical Beasts' launch in 'Monthly Comic Garden' magazine in September of 2016 and Seven Seas Entertainment obtained the license for the U.S. release a year later in 2017. The story runs in the same publication as 'The Ancient Magus' Bride' and the first compiled volume cover conveys the same magical feeling.

The cover artwork, like 'Bride', is just as wonderful inside the first book. Where both stories have beasts based on magical and mythical creatures in a more "modern day" setting, 'How to Treat Magical Beasts' doesn't feel as fantasy or otherworldly-driven. The heart of the story is surrounded by the art and science of 'Bestiary' care. Modern Veterinarian medicine + magical cures of lore for ailments, maladies and wounds.

The artwork and story are top notch and the heartfelt moments and interactions are beautiful and bountiful between the teacher/student (sensei/gakusei). I was completely won over by this work and eagerly awaiting volume #2.
