So I remember writing in a post a while ago that my favourite kind of Manga are the dark and twisted ones. Whilst I stand by this I find myself gravitating more towards the fun and a little tongue in cheek series now. That's exactly how I'd describe Demon Love Spell, it's cheeky but an awful lot of fun.
It follows Miko, a shrine maiden that has never had much luck banishing spirits. Until she meets Kagura, a demon that feeds off women's passion and love. In a twist of events Miko manages to cast a spell and bind his powers...but this leaves her vulnerable to the attacks of other spirits. Kagura and Miko end up in a mutually beneficial relationship. Kagura protects Miko and in return she allows him to remain in his full power state.
If you've ever read or watched Seven Deadly Sins the humour in that is very similar to Demon Love Spell. It borders on the slightly uncomfortable and often ends up with a male character somewhere they shouldn't be, if you catch my drift. Seven Deadly Sins, whilst it is a great series overall takes this to a degree that makes you cringe a little, Demon Love Spell manages to toe the line better. But most manga/animes are usually like this, you only need to look at the covers for most to see this. It's like the wonder woman thing, why is she fighting a battle with next to no armour on? It makes no sense! Poor wardrobe choices aside I really enjoy this Manga volume and will definitely be picking up the rest of the series soon.
