ThatGuy Rates Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid
by ThatGuy Rater -
Surprisingly adorable, delightfully funny, and shockingly engrossing. Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid is a sure hit that took me by surprise. A treat for any who liked Comedy like Azumanga Daioh or Yatsuba, and Monster manga like Monster Musume or Nurse Hitomi then you will fall in love with "Miss kobayashi's Dragon Maid"!
Fun for fans of the series
If you enjoyed the anime this past season, you're sure to have a good time with the manga. Even if you haven't watched the anime and just like a nice fluffy comedy, or monster girls without a ton of ecchi, this is highly recommended.
The series is about undermining expectation and creating a family. You have a shut in type computer programmer who meets a dragon while drunk and invites the dragon to her apartment. The dragon transforms into a maid.
Both form a sort of family and Kobayashi begins to adapt to being with others as well as learns to be a mother to another character, Kanna. Every character is looking for something and I enjoyed seeing them evolve as the story progresses. The art seems a little off, but works well with the story of expectations.
Grows On You...
by Andrew D
If you're like me you became interested in this manga on the coattails of the successful anime adaptation instead of the other way around. I'll say this: the art threw me off at first. The production value of the anime was spot on, and most of the jokes carried better in the anime than in this source material. Given the comparison, the impression the manga left was a bit lackluster, at first. However like most works of art, part of it's value is measured in it's staying power; how often you can come back to re-read/re-experience. With that in mind, this manga grows on you. Some of the illustrations are so simple they look like they could belong in a Garfield comic, yet despite this, many of the panels are simply inherently funny, like classic comedy. I find that I can pick up this manga, read a few pages at random, and still get a laugh out of it. Though I wasn't totally sold at first, it grew on me, and I consider it to hold a worthy place on the shelf.
