About Monster Musume Manga Volume 9

Monster Musume vol. 9 features story and art by Okayado.

Slippery When Wet

In a shocking twist (okay, maybe not so shocking…), Kimihito learns that he’s been playing host to a princess! Mero the mermaid is actually the daughter of the king and queen of the sea, and now her royal mother is summoning her back home. Kimihito, along with the other monster girls living in his household, go to visit the mermaid queen in the hopes of changing her mind. Along the way, they uncover a tangled scheme that involves kidnapping, royal intrigue, tragedy, and, of course, naughty tentacles. If this intrepid group can manage to stay un-molested long enough to solve the mystery, they could transform the entire mermaid kingdom! But for once, Kimihito isn’t the only one risking his life in the name of interspecies relations.

A monstrous heart

by -

If there is one thing that I can say about Monster Musume vol 9, it is that there is a surprising amount of heart in this volume. I mean don't get me wrong there is usual amount of fan service and comedy that the series is know for. But that being said I was surprised to be moved about the conclusion of the volume.

Nearly makes par

by -

While I like this series, I think the story line in this one was a little weak (at least concerning the merfolk). Perhaps the premise just was not my cup of tea. I don't want to spoil things for those who have not read it but I think the queen should have felt for a little more remorse for the consequences of her actions.

However, the episode with Lala makes up for it and the ingenuity she employs to deal with the problem she's concerned with without compromising her position is terrific.

Another hilarious volume, with a surprising bit of heart

by -

This volume is as funny as the previous 8, no doubt about that. The one thing I will say is the merfolk queen is kind of a terrible person, even if she's not trying to be, which pissed me off a bit. But that doesn't take away from Mero's selfless act to save Kimihito, which was actually a pretty dark scene compared the rest of the series. The end of the volume is where it really shines, the story about Lala is just wonderful. She questions her morality and her duty as a dullahan to save the life of a human girl, it was really touching to see this soft side of her. It actually brought Lala up to being one of my favorite characters. If you enjoyed the first 8 volumes there's no reason you won't enjoy this one.
