This interesting adaptation/interpretation of The Merchant of Venice will not be for everyone. In particular, those who dislike the Manga style and those who prefer only the traditional written text will feel most unease. This is a pity for it can sometimes be difficult for readers (myself included) to get into what are some of these great writings of literature. This interesting adaptation/interpretation is generally easy to read and has shown me a story I was only vaguely familiar with. It will be interesting to see how this version has interpreted the text (which I will eventually read) and how this compares with other versions (on stage and screen).
