KLIATT - George Galuschak
Something is amiss in the land of Yggdrasil. Monsters spawn in unlikely places, and the nature of reality is becoming undone. The Phantom has returned after a long absence, with his mighty magical items and his special pet, the hound of Cerberus. Or has he? The real Phantom, long since retired, realizes that someone is impersonating him. He and his friend Haruno investigate, and they are joined by Aoi, an elfish minstrel, and Gyoku, who types with a funny accent and wants to get the e-mail addresses of all the female avatars. Yes, you heard right. Yggdrasil isn't set in a fantasy realm; it is a MMORG (massive multiplayer online role-playing game). Yggdrasil is set in two realms: the real world, in which Koki is a typical high school student; and Yggdrasil, where he has two avatars. Koki's father is a programmer, which is why he has access to the Phantom. The plot revolves around Koki's relationship with a childhood friend, Haruna, and the deviltry afoot on Yggdrasil. Hopefully the second volume will focus on the latter plot, which is more interesting. The b/w art is character based, with sketchy backgrounds; a few of the action sequences are a bit hard to follow. Yggdrasil contains comic book violence and mild vulgarities (pissed) and is recommended for libraries with large manga collections; fantasy fans will also enjoy this. Reviewer: George Galuschak
