Monster Musume Volume 7 Review

Monster Musume Volume 7 Cover

  1. REVIEW

This was really fun to read.

 

The Monster Mums are really funny and very pretty and for me they were the highlights of this book. If I were to describe their looks and personalities I would say that they were exaggerated versions of their daughters. Miia’s mum is more sexually assertive, Papi’s mum is more of a birdbrain and Cerea’s mum has bigger pride.

 

I laughed many times but I was also touched at times too. Conflict did rise between the Monster Mums and their daughters, especially when Kimihito was involved. The conflict I think happened due to the cultural differences between the Monster Mums and Kimihito and the Mums are not used to the social custom in human society.

 

I was a bit surprised to learn a few things, especially Miia’s original intention for studying the Interspecies Programme. Even though she advances on Kimihito often it does make me realise just how innocent she really is. I admire her strength and resolve. Cerea’s and Papi’s resolve are equally as strong and I think it’s pretty cool as they genuinely like Kimihito for who he is and likewise he likes all the girls for who they are.

 

I think Suu’s hit the nail on the head. Marrying all the girls would be the most sensible solution and I think if monogamy was legal and plausible in Japan then I think he would marry them all without question. Perhaps something will change or a loophole will come up but for now he needs to work hard to find his bride to be. I do think he’s over-doing it though and it will be interesting to see what will happen in the next book.

 

This book made me laugh but also made me anxious, but in a good way.

Miia

I never realised that Lala’s skin colour was blue. I like Lala and for some reason I think the blue skin makes her more cute and unique. Her role was rather small in this book but I feel that her panel time was very significant. I’m not sure I understand the words that she speaks but I think her feelings towards Kimihito are no different than the rest of the Monster Girls. =)

  1. REVIEW

WARNING: I MAY GIVE SPOILERS AWAY

This manga raised my spirits.

What I gathered by reading this is that there are a number of students and general people in this story that have a problem with self-confidence. Whilst this story is somewhat set in a fantasy, since it involves a bunch of fantasy type characters, it deals with real life problems as well. We usually worry about ourselves and self-image when we’re growing up, mostly in school and college.

We create these worries through self-doubt and over-thinking. We grow up in different ways, we act in different ways, we think in different ways. I think the main focus of this story is individuality and acceptance.

There is no one better to reassure the self-doubting students then Dr Hitomi. She is a wonderful person. She might be the school’s nurse but she heals more than just cuts and bruises. She helps her students overcome their own problems. All the students have unique monster-esque features as well, so self-acceptance does come slowly for each character.

I think Hitomi does a great job making her students feel better and it isn’t because she’s perfect, it’s because she goes through her own problems as well. She cares about her students deeply, and they appreciate her kindness and sensitive nature. I nearly said it’s because she’s human like everyone else, but I’m not sure if a human actually exists in the story, haha. Sometimes Dr Hitomi needs reassurance herself even if she is the best at reassuring and helping others. It is human nature. Saying the word “human” is probably not appropriate but there’s no other way for me to describe it. Haha.

She’s really cute as well. She might be a cyclops but I think her glossy eye is gorgeous. It’s also hard to not smile at her innocent nature, especially when she begs her dad for ice cream. I didn’t expect her Dad to be a bear, I actually thought that was her date. Haha. Who would have thought?

Dr Hitomi and Manako

I think this is a rather cool picture between Dr Hitomi and Manako from Monster Musume. It’s a crossover that I highly approve of. I definitely approve of this monster girl niche. =)

Oh, by the way, this is my 100th blog post. I was aware that my 100th post was just around the corner so I was planning to post a review of No Game No Life anime or High School DxD volume four. However, this defeats the object of doing things in the ‘moment’. And as I’ve already written this blog, I decided to post it here and now. And I will continue to do this. =)

Thanks for reading. =)
