This week for Manga Monday I’m doing another Quick Review of a series I stumbled across a while back. It’s 1001 Knights by Sugisaki Yukiru!
Plot Synopsis: A tale of mystery and magic. Naito and Yuta Fuuga are twin brothers with very different personalities. While Naito is elegant and good in school, Yuta is athletic and often winds up in fights. Despite this, they maintain a close relationship. When their father turns up missing, both must travel to Dubai in search of him
Plot: This first chapter leaves a lot of unanswered questions, which is great because I love having plenty of things to grab my interest. That being said it is just the first chapter so far. I’ll get to reading up to the latest chapter soon, but for now the plot is excellent from what I can tell just from this first chapter.
Characters: Naito and Yuta are interesting, if only because I have a younger brother myself and we are almost completely the opposite in terms of personality and interests. Arthur on the other hand is a shady figure who I really don’t get yet, hopefully that gets resolved soon. So far I’m enjoying this cast.
Art: The artwork is excellent, and it’s a purely Josei style artwork. So it’s not as soft as Shoujo works but not quite as hard as a Seinen or Shounen series. That being said I’m enjoying the hell out of this so far.
Overall: Definitely going to say give this series a try, so far I’ve enjoyed it and there are plenty of unanswered questions for us to learn more about as the story goes on.
