Beast Master, Vol. 1 (Beast Master #1)
Reads R to L (Japanese Style). Taming a Beast was never this dangerous!
Leo Aoi looks like a crazy animal with wild eyes--and no one at his new high school will go near him! He does seem to have a special connection with animals though, which intrigues overzealous animal-lover Yuiko Kubozuka. In reality, Leo isn't as frightening as he appears, but Yuiko finds out that he g...more
Literally one of the best mangas I've ever read. Better than Fruits Basket, Ouran High School Host Club, MUCH better than Death Note...honestly, it's even better than...wait for it....Soul Eater.
Yeah, I know, it's that good. It's all about animals, which I loved, and Leo is insanely adorable. I MUST BUY THIS! I really hate the cover though, I'm so sick of misleading covers. My parents will see this and think "WTF are you reading?!" And really, I think my mom w...more
Yuiko is a normal high school girl who loves animals. She loves them so much that she tends to smother them and chase them away out of sheer survival instinct. One day after driving a cat up a tree, she meets a strange, wild boy named Leo.
Of course, since this is manga Leo winds up in her school as a new transfer student. He's incredibly scary looking, yet gentle. Can Yuiko befriend Leo, especially when he has a bad habit of going...more
Yuiko is a ditzy girl who loves animals and is undeterred by the fact that animals don't seem to like her very much. One day, as she's rescuing / getting mauled by a cat who runs up a tree to escape her, she meets Leo, a wild boy covered in blood, who is u...more
This story only has two volumes and is very short. Even th...more
I thought Beast Master sounded interesting in the same way that Fruits Basket sounded interesting. It sounded like it would be cute with an interesting twist. I was right about that. I’m pretty eager to keep reading this series.
Yuiko loves animals, but they don’t love her back. She’s a little overbearing and it scares them off. Animals love Leo. They’re attracted to him, and he has some kind of sense that tells him what they want and n...more
Not the most beautif...more
The story is a bit strange, not very plausible, but the characters are touching (though Yuiko was sometimes annoying) and if you are looking for a cute story, then this is all you need to read Beast Master.
It's a typical romance, with some drama, a cute boy and a strong-willed girl, a recipe which is used a lot but which always works if this is what you're looking for.
There is nothing much to say about this manga. It was a good read...more
But objectively, I felt like everything in the story was sort of flat/cliche in a fruits basket meets George of the Jungle sort of way. Found myself thinking "seriously?" a lot while reading. But it isn't the worst/most contrived shojo manga I have ever read, I reserve that title for the short-story the author decided to include at the end (even she releases...more
On the other hand, Leo is also a refreshing character: he is sensible (his eyes get watery very easily), he is different (gets violent as a beast, but he is tender with animals); he is very...more
I absolutely love Leo. He's so freaking cute and adorable (when he doesn't flip out and stuff). And the almost innocence that he has is refreshing. Boss is another of my favorites and he always makes me smile.
I will definitely read the next volume because I really can't wait to see where this leads.
A good short read. I don't know if it applies to all version, but the local version I bought had a one short in the second volume, the cactus story which was hilarious as well XD
Also..I expected more romance..... Me gusta romance. So that was lacking.
ALSO!!! And this is a really big problem for me.. The cover and random pictures of Leo and Yuiko in the manga are so misleading!!!!!!! The pictures are a bit suggestive and so is the cover. Not even close to the content in the actual anime. So that was my problem.
I MIGHT read the 2nd volume.
She uses a male pseudonym and draws herself as a man, but she's actually female."If my stories can touch you, make you laugh, forget unhappy things, or even give you that 'good job' feeling, then I'll be super...more
