About Mao Manga Volume 1

Mao manga volume 1 features story and art by Rumiko Takahashi.

When Nanoka travels back in time to a supernatural early 20th century, she gets recruited by aloof exorcist Mao. What is the thread of fate that connects them? Together, they seek answers...and kick some demon butt along the way!

Nanoka passes through a portal into the Taisho era, where exorcist Mao reluctantly rescues her from the jaws of a grotesque yokai. When Nanoka gets back to the present, she discovers she has some new, incredible abilities. She returns to the past looking for answers, only to get caught up in Mao’s investigation of a series of gruesome murders. As her questions about herself multiply, Nanoka learns that Mao is cursed by a cat demon named Byoki—and so is his sword. If anyone but Mao attempts to wield it, they are doomed. But when Mao’s life is in jeopardy, Nanoka picks up his blade and swings!

Familiar but still new. Great first volume.

There is a lot to say about Rumiko Takahashi works. As a fan of her's I think that she has been able to create her own lane and have a successful career. Mao is her latest works, that takes elements from her pervious titles and make it feel like it's own thing. While this volume is mostly set up for this universe's story and the characters, it lays down enough open end questions to make you come back for a few extra re-readings. While Rumiko Takahashi art is unique, I do not feel like it is at it's best in Mao. Overall if you like Rumiko Takahashi then you will like Mao. 8/10.
