The IP was began beneath Koyoharu Gotouge at Shueisha, and the manga bought quite effectively earlier than ufotable tailored it into an anime. Nobody may have predicted how standard the show would grow to be, and it now ranks as one of the vital worthwhile anime collection of all time. And in case you have been lacking its signature mix of drama and oni motion, Marvel has one thing it would be best to take a look at ASAP.

This week, the writer teamed with writer-artist Peach Momoko to launch Demon Wars: Protect of Justice. The brand new solo run went dwell right this moment with subject one, and naturally, its yokai-centric story caught the curiosity of netizens. In any case, manga and anime are crammed with these supernatural beasts.

On paper, Demon Wars: Protect of Justice couldn’t sound extra totally different from Demon Slayer barring their shared love of oni. Marvel’s comedian tells the story of Mariko Yashida, a younger woman who learns she’s half oni and wields unimaginable energy within the demon realm.

On this collection particularly, Mariko finds herself coping with a Civil Warfare of her personal because the Ikai manifests demon variations of Marvel’s greatest characters. When the samurai Yamato (Captain America) aligns with Nekomata (Black Panther) in a battle to kill Bake-Yoroi (Iron Man), the destiny of Ikai is put in steadiness. Issues are made all the more severe when Mariko learns Yamato has been possessed by a bloodthirsty demon (Carnage) that she feels inside herself as effectively.


Clearly, the Marvel parallels listed here are robust and can enchantment to longtime followers, however Momoko’s collection feels in contrast to something the writer has executed earlier than. If something, the story feels akin to one thing Gotouge and even Rumiko Takahashi would ink. The concept of belonging and located household is robust right here as Mariko is left questioning where she matches into the Ikai if in any respect. That is to not point out Demon Wars’ whimsical artwork and pastel palette that makes it visually distant from the rest Marvel has available on the market. And with such tight writing readily available, effectively – you solely need to learn subject one to see why Demon Slayer followers are wanting to sustain with Momoko’s new title.
