Bound To Me by La-cruciatus Bound To Me by La-cruciatus
I hate it when really fun mangas are not popular. Take Kainushi wa Akuma for example. It has a decent storyline, somewhat episodic but with healthy doses of humour and romance. The protagonists are very interesting: Nora is a tough, no-nonsense shoujo heroine with a mysterious magical power (She reminds me of Misaki from Kaichou wa Maid Sama!, but more sensible and less naive). Albrecht (or the stuff a fangirl's dreams are made of) is a demon who serves the church and has a contract with Nora: he keeps her alive with his blood but in return, she's his faithful pet. Fascinating, right? Yet how many of you guys who bothered to glance at this artwork immediately recognize it's from KwA? Not many, I presume.

If you like supernatural mangas, you should try Ohmi Tomu's works. They're amazing! Heart Love

Maybe I'll give it a look too. The fem protagonist sounds promising.
oh, nice job dear! I think your art looks a little different... Or is it just my imagination?

Thanks. Lol, it's not just your imagination, I've been trying some new brushes for line art and experimenting with my colouring technique. But you're the only person who's noticed.Fail [ OTL ]

I wholeheartedly agree. I think sometimes that manga is a victim of it's own success and now we're spoilt for choice and the real gems can get lost in the sea. The sad thing is that a lot of the good ones don't get recognised until they're made into anime. I usually go by recommendations so I'll definitely give this one a look.

So true. Though the fact that those of us who do not know Japanese are entirely reliant on scanlations is also to blame, since scanlators must procure raws, translation them, edit and clean etc. They may decide to drop the series if they can't get raws or can't get adequate help or personal reasons. Also, good mangas don't always get licensed, since popularity is the sole reason why companies like Viz, Sublime etc licence mangas.

Yeah, do check it out. You won't be disappointed.
