This week for Manga Monday I’ve got another Quick Review! It’s Shoukoku no Altair by Kato Kotono!
Plot Synopsis: Mahmut is a young Pasha serving on the council of the Türkiye Stratocracy. The clouds of war are gathering over his country as the threat of the aggressive Empire looms large. With Türkiye’s council split between the warmongers and the pacifists, Mahmut begins his quest to keep the peace at any cost…
Plot: This first chapter is pretty awesome, and had me hooked from the first few pages. I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of the series when I get the chance. Hopefully that will be soon, as this series really looks to be awesome.
Characters: Mahmut is a pretty awesome male lead, and his pet eagle Iskander is just as awesome. The rest of the cast is great as well, and I’m excited to start meeting new characters.
Art: The art is excellent, in fact if I didn’t know from looking up the publisher, I’d have guessed that this was run in a Shueisha publication given how good the art is.
Overall: Giving this the definite go ahead, Altair should prove to be an awesome series.
For those who like: Action, Drama, Historical Fiction, Military Fiction, Awesome Male Lead, Fantastic Plot, Great Artwork, Excellent Cast of Characters.
Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above, but how can you hate all that?
