This week for Manga Monday I’m doing a Quick Review of a series I stumbled across recently. It’s My Life by Narita Inomushi!

Plot Synopsis: Astra L. Doomsday, former captain of the royal knights has finally achieved his dearest wish: To retire and use his savings to get his very own house. But not long after finally arriving to his sanctuary, a young girl crash-lands into his house. The girl is an apprentice witch, and seems to mistake Astra for someone else.

Plot: The plot is hilarious, and very light hearted. Considering that I’m writing this post two days after the US Presidential Election I was ecstatic to laugh for any reason. Nevertheless I was very pleased by how good the story is, it’s not super original, but it’s still warmhearted enough to make me enjoy myself for the few minutes it took me to read the first chapter.
Characters: Astra is a great male lead to this series, while Noel is pretty clueless albeit in a cute sort of way for a child. They are really the only characters we get introduced to in this first chapter, I don’t think the small fry characters we meet will show up again. Probably.
Art: The art is wonderful, and fits this series very well. It could be a bit more well defined in the movement shots, but overall I love the artwork.
Overall: I’m going to give this the go ahead for now, as the story looks pretty promising.
For those who like: Comedy, Fantasy, Action, Laughing, Interesting Plots, Great Lead Characters, Awesome Artwork.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
