The Boy and the Beast

by -

To start off this book is also a movie. I have not seen nor did I know that it was a film before I purchased this manga. That being said I really enjoyed it. The story is cute and fast paced. We see a little into the character's backstory so we know where they're coming from and both of these characters are on a quest to get stronger. It kind of reminded me of Kung Foo Panda.

This book was really fun to read and I look forward to seeing the movie as well as reading more about this story.
