IS DEAD MOUNT DEATH PLAY #1
WORTH YOUR TIME?
WHAT DID WE THINK WITHOUT SPOILING IT?
Dead Mount Death Play #1 is the first chapter in an ongoing manga that you can buy chapter by chapter. This is an awesome way to support manga creators whose work you enjoy and find new manga to fall in love with. While the initial price of $2.99 might seem steep, I can honestly say that the story and art are worth it. The first few pages are in color and, the chapter is very well done.
Dead Mount Death Play #1 is one big ole exposition dump on the reader that manages to work. The twist at the end has me intrigued and wanting to come back for more. I already bought chapter 2.
I enjoyed it.
This is a violent and dark manga. I knew nothing at all about it and, in the first few pages, they beat you over the head with who the major players are and what sort of world you were in. The heavy exposition was a bit off-putting at first, but thankfully the events moved fast enough that things felt interesting. The events that occur soon after really surprised me and the twist at the end has me wanting to know more.
What you should know:
This is a magic heavy manga where people die, and morals don’t seem to be much of an issue here. There was a tiny bit of fan service do to character design and tropey circumstances, but that didn’t last long or take away from the manga. If anything it worked great. The story is fast-paced, and the art was able to keep up, and it all looked great.
I feel like this is going to be an interesting read. Sure, there was a huge bit of exposition dumping happening at the start, but there is still a lot unsaid. Motivations are not really explained and that sweet twist at the end, well it worked.
I cannot wait to start reading the next chapter.
