The Broken Shelf 136: Omamori Himari Volume Four

Switching up the style, Danny decides to dig into his bag of tricks and spice up this manga review chain with a little compare and contrast. Originally it was the anime that made him want to buy the manga, and this time around it was his backtracking adventure through the manga that made him want to visit the anime again. Through his trek he discovered some differences between the two medias that were not relegated to a transition from static to animation, and therefore he decided it would be a fun idea to see how and why when an idea goes from simply the mind and pen of a mangaka to being the property of an animation studio that the same product could come across differently. It's the same as from a movie to a book and while looking at two key sequences Danny hopes to articulate why each media works the way it does, all while exploring perhaps his favorite entry in the franchise.

The return journey through this aged romcom has been trying for Danny. With more exposure to the genre he can see more of the generic cues but that also means when a flare of individuality breaks through it is deserved of high praise. Does the art continue to improve? Is the story held back by tropes? Will Yuuto ever function as a normal teenage boy? So many questions and whether or not the narrative gets in its own way the journey is fun for Danny. This series has been a challenge for him both artistically and critically and that was the very reason he wanted to continue despite some trepidation. Regardless, you are here for a critical look at literature and Danny still gives you that.

More manga means more superficial artistic critique. Even if he is an amateur, Danny knows manga and he once again tries to adequately explain the positive and negatives while addressing the visual media concern. What is a manga really? Can great art make up for a subpar story? Can genius narrative overcome lackluster art? What if you're a mangaka god and have both? What if you have neither? These are the topics Danny discusses, but mostly he attacks the question of whether or not any art can survive on fan-service alone. How does volume two hold up and how does it compare to his first time reading it? Find out in another engaging episode of The Broken Shelf.

Thanks to Spangar for introducing comic books it was only a matter of time before Danny was allowed to break his silence on the manga genre. He goes through his history and introduction to the media and why his love for the Japanese product is a little more conflicting than his other loves. He then goes through his history with the review material and why it was so important to the person he was at the time and why he can't wait to challenge himself with a return to the product. Not only an engaging look at the genre, but also a conversation on art and chapter structure, Danny doesn't let his nostalgia blind him but also he can praise the mangaka for the talent he once misunderstood. A nice introspective at something that means something totally different in a genre he has long wanted to explore.

Podcast manga reveiw of Omamori Himari Volume 1 by Milan Matra. Translated by Amy Forsyth. Originally published in Japan by Fujimishobo. Published in US by Yen Press, $10.99, Rated M for Mature.

From the back cover:

"Severely allergic to felines, Yuuto Amakawa spends his mornings nursing a drippy nose courtesy of his friend Rinko's cat. But on his sixteenth birthday, it's not just Rinko's pet that's riling up his allergies - to say nothing of his hormones! Appearing before him is Himari, a buxom, sword-wielding cat spirit in human guise who has sworn to protect Yuuto, now the target of vengeful spirits! It's clear that Yuuto's allergies are the least of his problems - he's gonna need Himari's help if he wants to live to see his seventeenth birthday!"

My Grade: B+

Omamori Himari was adapted into an anime at the beginning of this year in Japan. Here is a promotional trailer for the series:
