What They Say
Adell has promised to take Rozalin back to her father, the powerful Lord Zenon. But as they get closer to the mysterious overlord, Rozalin questions what she knows about her father and Adell broods over the fact that he will have to fight against him.

The appearances of Beauty Queen Etna and the Dark Hero Axel only ensure that the path to Zenon will be more difficult than they imagined. And Zenon himself is not standing idly by, as his two minions, the mysterious hooded figures, are charged with finding Rozalin and bringing her back.

The Review
Adell's quest to find the Dark Overlord Zenon continues. He still has no clue where to start but he is not going to give up on his dream to rescue his family before they become full-fledged demons. As the last human in this land, life isn't easy but he is fortunate to have met plenty of monsters willing to aide him with his ventures. He only wishes Rozalin, the one he summoned specifically(/accidentally) for the purpose to track Zenon down, would find it in her heart to help him.

Ironically Rozalin happens to be Zenon�fs only daughter, so the Overlord is fuming over the fact that his daughter is missing. Eventually Adell and Zenon will meet each other but who will Rozalin stand next to when that time comes. She can see what her father has done to this world but she there is no way any daughter will ever want to see their parents killed. Maybe she can stop that encounter from happening by doing what demons do best�c She could kill that pesky human

While the original Disgaea manga series was solid, it wasn't much of a stand-alone property. This latest series from Hekaton based on the second game follows the game while entertaining on its own merits. Hekaton incorporates the quirky moments from the game and still finds a way to keep the story moving. Pleinair's scenes are kept to the chapter previews. Enta has her own previews to shine in, just so you don't forget about her. New characters are introduced when the plot can best accommodate them. Like the video game this manga is a non-stop romp! At times it is laugh-out-loud funny. Then there are other times when it is sugar sweet, but there is no denying that Disgaea 2 is enjoyable for anyone looking for a little French frog slapping action!

I might have to proclaim this Broccoli's best series yet. The crazy extras section for this manga might be the best production ever seen in a manga not drawn by Tony Takezaki!
