    One thought on “Devils' Line, Vol. 1”

    1. 2.75 rounded upSo this is basically Tokyo Ghoul Vampire, though tamer and with more focus on the human girl instead of the half-ghoul vampire.Small gripe that bothers me more than it probably would most people; the font choice is terrible and it looks worse than fan-made scanlations.Compared to the Japanese version:Also, why did we lose the color in the beginning? It's digital so it's not like it costs more to print.The translated version just seems to be lower quality than the original Japanese [...]

    2. Read #1Started on March 2, 2017Finished on March 4, 20173.5 starsI enjoyed this one! I rated it lower because it was a pretty standard (but well-done) YA/new adult-esque romance. The "devil lust" crap was stupid, but I think, again, pretty standard with a lot of manga. It definitely felt like it was only added as a subplot to excuse any hyper-sexualization of the female characters, but surprisingly, it didn't detract too much from the main bulk of the story because you don't see that happen very [...]

    3. Devil's Line is a lot like Tokyo Ghoul. (in a way) So we have this college girl who is saved by a half vampire/demon guy and falls in love with him.The art is not so good, the romance is too much and it has a lot of gore and mature themes, so why am I rating this one 3.5 stars?Well actually there is a simple reason: I love the originality of the plot!This is not about romance but the way they can find a balance in their tragic love story and I am a sucker for tragic relationships. Plus that it h [...]

    4. Kind of reminds me of Tokyo Ghoul in art style and topic, but focuses more on the relationship between a human and a "devil." I like how it hales back to some vampire classic stories but some of the relationship stuff is a bit icky. Tsukasa is too weak for my taste, too.

    5. Unattractive artwork, unoriginal plot, instalove. Basically an illustrated Twilight clone but with lots of blood.

    6. One night while Tsukasa is escorted home after a date, she is attacked by a devil, a vampire that can live among humans, and is rescued by Anzai. Anzai is a half-devil and uses his abilities to work for a special task force for the Tokyo police department where he investigates devil-related crime. After the encounter, Anzai continues to look after Tsukasa and they quickly form a strong and dangerous bond. When he is with Tsukasa he lets down his guard and is ever fearful of breaking his rule of [...]

    7. I was so excited to read this series despite the comparisons it has received and I'm happy to say it exceeded my expectations! Not only is the story interesting and the art beautiful but the mangaka does an amazing job balancing out the dark atmosphere with very funny moments. I'm in love, one of my favorite new series to pick up this year so far!!

    8. I had high hopes for this but it was disappointing. Couldn't even finish this the layout and writing were kind of jumbled and confusing. The story was kind of weird and I really didn't like any character at all maybe it's just me, though?

    9. Ha. I've found my guilty pleasure vampire manga. I do wish that the main female character wasn't such a non-character and that the world and people were more fleshed out, but I'm just going to have fun with this series and not expect too much.

    10. It lost one star due to the fact that the art was a little sloppy and not that great (proportions, angles, and bodies were very off)

    11. Haven't decided on a rating for this, but I was just not impressed. It wasn't bad, but I'm definitely not continuing the series.Just wanted to briefly talk about my opinion (since it's BTAT & I'm reading a lot very rapidly) and explain why I didn't love this. Firstly, I found the dialogue incredibly hard to follow. Often the speech bubbles would be oddly-placed and although the bubble's "tail" (is that what they're even called? idk) would point in the correct direction, but wouldn't be anywh [...]

    12. If I were to describe this premise, I would say its basically a crossing of Millennium Snow and Tokyo Ghoul. I find that this will be a very addicting series maybe not the smartest Our characters quickly go from strangers to awkward angsty teen who has a traumatizing past that the story is going to slowly feed us. Our main girl Tsukasa is kind of a plain jane, who seems to become quickly infatuated with our half-human-half-devil Anzai, after he outs one of her close friends as a Devil and saves [...]

    13. I remember finding this guy when it first came out on the shelves. The art on the front and the title is what caught my attention. I ended up getting it, and honestly, I really enjoy it! I do find it odd that on the book it's age rating is 13+. But with the subject being quite adult oriented (plus sexual themes) it should be rated higher in Older teen or 17+In my own opinion: The sexual tension is fantastic, the plot line is pretty solid and keeps my attention. I gave it 4/5 because the art isn' [...]

    14. In Devils's Line, Tsukasa is walking home with one of her friends when they are confronted by guy claiming that her friend is not only a Devil, but a murderer. Over a span of two months Tsukasa and Anzai, the guy who confronted her and her friend and possibly saved her from an attack, form a connection. But not everything is well, because someone out there is hunting Devils. While I found the story interesting, it was a bit confusing how it seemed to switch arcs toward the middle. The characters [...]

    15. So, I have never read this series and bought it on a whim. Has a very pronounced Tokyo Ghoul feel, I went and looked up the copyright dates, this was first published in 2013, while Tokyo Ghoul was 2011. Don't know if the author was inspired by it, but the eyes and the whole "vampire" thing seems pretty similar.The art is lacking, I'm not gonna lie. If we're being totally honest, the art is at my level as an amateur and feels stiff in panels. The proportions are all off, but I am hoping it improv [...]

    16. I got Definite Twilight vibes from this manga. I will warn you it does have a bit of nudity and does touch on sexual matters. I own the next 2 volumes so I'm more likely to continue ( I don't know if would have continued otherwise). I would consider this a "standard" manga because it a good read but it hasn't blown me away ( but does have potential). I would give you a warning there is a bit of "instant infatuation" ( its not a spoiler because it happens in the beginning ) which I'm not to fond [...]

    17. I liked the concept of the book however, it did remind me of Tokyo Ghoul. As I read other reviews I noticed that I'm not the only one who thought this. I really liked Yuuki Anzai but, the blood lust thing was kind of cliche. It kind of ended up killing his character for me?I also would have liked it more if Tsukasa Taira had a stronger personality. She was too weak for my liking so it made it drag on. I think if she was a tougher character I would have been able to enjoy it more.

    18. One of the best police stories I have ever read hands down. The way that Ryo Hanada handles the dynamics between vampires and humans is incredible because it paints a world that could potentially exist in real life. From the storytelling to the real personalities of the characters it is a must read to those who enjoy shows like NCIS, Law & Order, Psyche and the like.

    19. Yes I know the vampire genres has been diminished in some many ways but in this case. Devils line gets you hooked in first chapter . Well it did for me . I am big vampire genre fan.In this story seems to be less lovey dovey and more dark romance. Like there will be a purpose for the romance .It starts up typical yet mature .But a really good story read your to be enjoyed y many more.

    20. Very good overall. Very interesting story, very good drawings and very good charcters. I would reconmd this to anybody looking for a good back.
