US Manga Corps
Legend of Lemnear
Right. Hands up who remembers Plastic
Little? The guy responsible for that was
Satoshi Urushihara whose output is very
distinctive for two reasons. These are both pink
and very well drawn. Now that might sound sexist,
but if you ever watched that anime, and if you
ever watch this one, then you might even try
reading Chirality, and you will notice
that his penchant for nipples borders on the
obsessive! I might do him a disservice, but it is
an easy thing to assume having watched this
boob-laden other-worldly anime.
It seems that there is a power imbalance. The
land is covered in darkness, and sorcerers
abound, dominating the land and its people. Into
a town comes Lemnear, a warrior and somewhat
busty girl, whose defence of her womanhood in a
bar brawl soon gets her noticed by the local town
slaver, bully and all round round guy. But below
him waits the secret behind Lemnear and her fate,
and beyond him lies the biggest sorcerer of all.
Even that isn't the end, since bigger evil lies
behind all, evil which Lemnear is destined to
Yes, there are boobs. There are sexual advances.
You could never hope to show this to the kiddies
without some welfare officer going ape. The
story, however, is simple, clear and direct. It
has a few similarities with Plastic
Little beside the boobies, and the whole
thing will appeal to anyone that liked that
previous work. The artwork is clear and
distinctively Urushihara, the only big gripe is
the usual one about USMC and the lack of Japanese
credits for the seiyuu. Oh well...
