MangaCast Review: Deka Kyoshi, vol. 1
Another one of my guest reviews is up at MangaCast, a blog dedicated to manga news and reviews. This time around, I review Deka Kyoshi, vol. 1. Here's an excerpt:
After an elementary school teacher supposedly commits suicide, detective Toyama goes undercover to investigate. One of his students, a young boy named Makoto Miyahara, sees emotional manifestations that appear as monsters, later dubbed “synthes.” Once Makoto learns Toyama’s secret, the detective enlists the young boy as an assistant of sorts. ... It’s hard to ignore this story’s parallels with the Arnold Schwarzenegger comedy Kindergarten Cop. But, outside of the funnier moments and the undercover cop plot, that’s where the similarities end.
