Stray Little Devil volume 4 is a masterpiece. Of fanservice. Need I say more!? Well… okay.

Story:
Whoa, things really pick up in terms of storyline in this volume. For one, the actual underlying plot is developed. I’m pretty sure the plot of the book was deliberately kept extremely vague so that the author had time to figure out what the heck it would be. And he finally did, or was forced to make something up, at least.

Linfa finally switches from tsuntsun mode to deredere for Pam. This amounts to awesomeness. Then that one super powerful dude ends up getting the Grand Seraph Lamington Chairman Aregna arrested on counts of treason. Apparently he stole some kind of ancient artifact.

This sets into motion events that cause Linfa to lose her powers. I guess I shouldn’t spoil the whole chapter, so I’ll just say that the end of this volume results in the climax of the series. And technically, I believe I’m using the term climax correctly, just like how they taught us in English class!

Analysis:
So the plot finally goes somewhere. Excellent. But as an added bonus, there seems to be even MORE fanservice in this volume. Plot AND fanservice? This volume is win. The volume actually starts with an awesome chapter where some entity goes crazy and starts declothing everyone. Vine-chan, kawaii yo!

Then there’s the long-awaited Pam X Linfa stuff. Awesome. My only complaint is that Vine just disappears once the plot starts happening. And there’s a new character added who’s kind of annoying. Ah, well, at least she gets in on the fanservice, too.

Also, Stray Little Devil is really starting to resemble another series that I dig, Disgaea. Dunno if it’s a coincidence or not. SLD is nowhere near as epic, but it’s hard not to notice the similarities.

Conclusion:
Overall, this is a really great volume! I’m a really big fan of the artwork. It really makes reading Stray Little Devil a lot easier. I gotta find out if this Mori Kotaro guy is doing any other manga since SLD ends in the next volume.

Many thanks to DrMaster Publications for sending me a review copy of Stray Little Devil Volume 4!

  1. I think that what you posted was actually very logical. But, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title? I ain’t saying your content is not solid., but what if you added a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean BLOG_TITLE is a little plain. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create news titles to grab people to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get people excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.|

  2. F*ckin’ remarkable things here. I’m very satisfied to look your post. Thank you a lot and i’m having a look ahead to touch you. Will you kindly drop me a e-mail?

  4. Unquestionably believe that that you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to take note of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst people think about concerns that they plainly don’t realize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as well as defined out the entire thing without having side effect , other people could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
