Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Nora is a demon who has an attitude problem. Unruly, loud and defiant, he crosses his Dark Liege one time too many, leading him to be sent to Human School. Forced into a body of servitude, Nora becomes the familiar to aloof star student Kazuma Makkari. Mayhem swiftly ensues after Nora discovers he can only use magic with permission from Kazuma, and the two butt heads both literally and figuratively. Packed with action at every turn, the two are forced to work together, although not necessarily get along, as the Dark Liege wants them to fight renegade demons. The story is less compelling than other stories of a similar vein and relies too heavily on violence and slapstick humor. There is a general lack of character development, and both Nora and Kazuma are highly predictable. Kakei's art is comical; the characters often wear exaggerated expressions and frequently appear angry or distressed. Nora isn't bad, but falls short in many ways. (Oct.)

    Not bad but not the greatest

    Ok so I've read a few manga series and I saw this on sale and decided to pick it up and see what it was all about. So you have Nora, a.k.a the Cerberus, who is learning to control his demon powers in hell when the Dark Liege decides that Nora needs to train his powers in the human world. Nora is sent to become the human Kazuma's familiar or basically his pet. Whenever Nora wants to use his demon powers he must have Kazuma accept his request, this leads to some humorous scenes where Kazuma refuses to allow the magic unless Nora starts acting obedient. <BR/><BR/>Overall I feel the story isn't bad but it seems to be missing something. The characters are very well done and each one brings something new to the table. So if you see this on the shelf and are looking for a new series to enjoy I suggest this one but don't expect to be blown away by the series.

    When i first read a portion of this from the Shonen Jump magazine, i got obsessed. I waited and waited for the first and next volume to come out and got them as quickly as i could. LOVE IT! Humor and action and the characters are fun to observe!
