[Manga] Nightschool: The Weirn Books Vol. #01 Review
Age Rating: 13 and Up
Released By: Yen Press
Orientation: Left to Right
Nightschool's first volume is a promising one. Lots of characters are introduced, and lots of intriguing questions are posed that make me look forward to the second volume. However, without these twists and details, the first volume's fantasy story of a high school for witches and vampires seems more generic than it may later prove to be. The volume's main strength is the quality of the dialogue and humor. Chmakova is able to poke fun at vampires and their cliches in such a way that suggests she'll be able to sidestep those same cliches in her own story. It's a solid start, but so far it's just a start. I really hope Nightschool is able to live up to its potential.
