One-shot: “Seigi no Mikata”
Here’s our debut project for Bakeneko’s Lair! “Seigi no Mikata”! I’m pretty surprised this one-shot appeared in Hana to Yume magazine since it’s not typical shoujo. It has quite a bit of action, some coarse humor, and some coarse language. I thought it would be a nice way to ease us into Bakeneko’s Lair. Anyhow, despite his rough edges, the main character Mikata is adorable and the story itself is pretty solid. And now onto the links:
My Thoughts on “Seigi no Mikata”
I want more! I want see Mikata deal more with his responsibility as a hero. Will there be a moment when he, himself, chooses to do heroic acts in that silly costume? I also want to see Mikata learn that not every situation can be resolved by fighting. I like the interaction between Mikata and S. What is the “Hero Program”? I’d like to see some of the other heroes come together and share their embarrassment and what is the technology or person who is picking up the SOS brainwaves? Also, I’d like to see Mikata deal with his family issues and to see him decide for himself what he wants to do with his life.
Recently many of the one-shots that have run in Hana to Yume have become one-volume series, so I hope “Seigi no Mikata” gets the same treatment. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for it!
