About The Boy and the Beast Novel (Hardcover)

The Boy and the Beast novel is written by Mamoru Hosoda.

Tokyo's a big city--big enough that it's easy for a grieving boy like Ren to slip through the cracks. But Ren slips a little farther than he meant to, ending up in the beast world of Jutengai! He ends up with a new name--Kyuta--and a new life as the apprentice of the bear Kumatetsu, learning the way of the sword. Kumatetsu's got problems of his own, though, and the boy and the beast may have more to learn from each other than they realize. But the boy's arrival in the realm of the beasts has put both their worlds in danger, and they're going to need more than life lessons to face it!

Fast pacing first half to slow paced second half


Great and very enjoyable movie however, not perfect.

The first half of the series was quite pacy while the second half becomes slow pacing. It went from action, adventure and coming age of our protagonist kyuuta (First Half), to a teenage romance (Second Half). and because of that the movie has some pacing issues, it almost feels like as Im watching two different movies at once. While i don't have problem with that however, it's not for everyone. For those who are looking for a fast paced movie they might find the second half kinda slow, and I kinda noticed that because i watched this with my mom who found the second half boring. However if you are looking a great coming of age movie then this one is for you.
