About Shed that Skin Ryugasaki-san! Manga Volume 1

Shed that Skin, Ryugasaki-san manga volume 1 features story and art by Kazutomo Ichitomo.

Ryugasaki-san is a lizardgirl. Her tongue is like that of a chameleon's, her hands are like that of a gecko's, and she even has a third eyelid!

Due to her unique biological makeup, she sheds her skin multiple times a year. This wouldn't ordinarily be an issue, but she suddenly finds herself (or rather, her skin) the target of a classmate's affections.

The peculiar Yugami-kun has a particular interest in reptiles, and Ryugasaki-san's unique physiological features have caught his inquisitive, meticulous eye. Thus begins the story of a budding romance between two very unusual individuals. With a bit of luck, Ryugasaki-san can show the hapless Yugami-kun that there's more to her than her reptilian anatomy!

Shedding some light on a new manga

by -

I loved the art, especially Ryugasaki"s eyes. The main characters expressions were well done, so I could feel their emotions. The dialogue felt natural and I never thought "wait that doesn't make sense".

I love the slice of life story. Classic forbidden love: Yugami is seen as a weirdo for liking reptiles and Ryu is "mostly normal" and advised to stay away. So their budding romance is frowned upon. You also have a lonely boy who's never had friends and a girl who has friends but is scared of being herself with them because of bullying who find each other and are able to be themselves. It's cute seeing these two people finally find a friend and Yu stop seeing Ryu as just a skin donor.

The characters, could be fleshed out a little more. It's only the first volume but I want a bit more characterization. It's funny at times and shows why Yugami is alone but he can be creepy/stalkerish. Luckily he's learning and Ryu calls him out on it and still wants to be with him.

Pretty well done, character expressions and the artwork alone make this worth the read! The writing itself flows smoothly enough (albeit a tad quick, but that's just me) that you won't be lost or confused on how something makes sense.

The only real issue is some of the character development, but it's only the first volume. That said, don't hesitate to pick up a copy! It's got that slice of life feel and some romantics going on so go ahead, dive on in!
