I loved the unusual look of the art on the cover so I didn’t really care what this new manga was about. Nicola Traveling Around the Demons’ World vol 1 turned out to surprise me with its depth of friendship and a look into the beautiful heart of a most unusual girl.
Did Nicola Traveling Around the Demons’ World vol 1 enchant this Fangirl’s heart?
I think it’s already pretty evident that I loved and adored Nicola. She can’t stand to see people suffer. And refuses to believe that demons can’t change. We drop right into her friendship with Simon the demon who found her in his world. And it was delightful!
Nicola is so quirky, unusual and has such a quick temper.
I loved how Simon and Nicola challenged one another. This was the #1 friendship in the volume and I found them charming together. Simon teased out the best qualities in Nicola. Her determination. Her optimism. Her love of shiny rocks!
Friendship is Nicola’s passion.
Simon isn’t Nicola’s only friend. She meets a girl her own age and has an excellent play date. Her reactions to this little demon girl are hilarious! Another fierce boy is a gifted magic user… and her rival. Needless to say her temper flares meeting him.
And the demons encompass a magical world.
Sure there are your human like demons like Simon and the girl and boy she befriends. But there are also supernatural creatures she meets and helps. She uses her passionate temper and her spotty magic to further her friends’ greatest desires. It’s a beautiful world of friendships!
The art of Nicola Traveling highlights all the good things.
Here comes that word again… quirky. The art of Nicola Traveling Around the Demons’ World is different from what you typically see in manga. Sure it’s black and white but it has this immense detail that makes color unnecessary.
Plus the stark black and white art highlights the things that truly make Nicola Traveling Around the Demons’ World special.
As you can see a picture is worth a thousand words. If you aren’t into the typical manga or comic then you’ll want to check out Nicola Traveling Around the Demons’ World. It’s unusual, and intricate and focused on friendship. What a beautiful thing!
Nicola Traveling Around the Demons’ World vol 1 is the record of the delightful adventures of a most precocious little girl. One with a mega temper and spotty magic but a passion for friendship that makes the magic happen. Perfect for a quick pick me up and gorgeous art!
