Anima Volume 9

Readers are once again reunited with the strange and bizarre world of Anima, a world where some humans called "Anima" possess animal-like characteristics. Unfortunately for the Anima they have been vilified by society and either hide or attempt to thwart their animalistic nature from the broader community.

The main drawcard for me about this series was the artwork that was quite simplistic and "cute" and suited the premise behind the theme perfectly. Like all good Manga, for English readers, the book is read from the back to the front and although this experience does take some time getting use to, Anima makes that experience thoroughly beneficial to the reader.

In volume 9, we are once again rejoined with Cooro as they travel the globe and stumble across a town that allegedly has an "Angel". Of course, Cooro knows that this "Angel" is in actual fact an Anima who turns the town against our heroes.

The drama, action and humour of the story perfectly suits this medium and what makes it so interesting are the relatable characters. This current volume is an interesting journey for Cooro as he is labelled a villain, even though he only wants to help.

The book also had some great subplots involving Nana, Husky and Senri, of course all along for the ride. Like previous volumes, the art of Natsumi Mukai is superb and his talents suit the story perfectly with its almost childlike qualities.

Bring on volume 10!
