MADK Vol. 1 by Ryo Suzuri

(3 customer reviews)

Makoto has long been ostracized because of his odd hobbies and a sexual kink others would see as disgusting. One day he finds a book on summoning demons and manages to summon the intimidatingly beautiful and rather chatty Archduke J. The demon offers to grant Makoto’s deepest twisted desire in exchange for his life. Once Makoto has sated his demented appetites, he fulfills his end of the bargain, only to find he’s been reborn as a monster…in hell!

    While I was literally shocked into the world of ero guro in the first chapter and wondering if I had made a horrible mistake, not only did I end up enjoying it, I’m craving more.
    It’s incredibly dark, but normally you would associate that with a character being miserable and abused but this feels like the opposite. As messed up as the smut scenes can be, Makoto enjoys them (one questionable) and by the end of the first volume he is basking in the world of demons and starting to show his nature he repressed as a human.
    I thought the story going in might just be straight up touture, but it is actually incredibly political. There’s a lot of focus on the power play that goes on in hell and raising the ranks to be feared by all. The master/minon play going forward excites me because normally where the power between the roles remains static, it clearly won’t be the case going forward.
    The art really is artistic and beautiful. A lot of the more gruesome content you sometimes don’t even notice because of the style. I never thought I would see a full page spread including a decapitated head and stare at how beautiful it is.

    This first volume is such a fascinating mix of horror and humor. It wasn’t a comfortable read at all – ero guro isn’t exactly something I really go for – but it has such an interesting playfulness to it even among all the darkness and all the terrible things going on in the story. There’s something almost alluring to it, which is more than appropriate for a story about demons.

    It isn’t something I’d recommend lightly because of the content, but if dark themes and heavy consent issues aren’t a problem, this is worth giving a try. The art is gorgeous (and not especially gruesome, considering) and the story looks to be heading a fascinating direction.

    I probably shouldn’t like this manga but I do. The art is absolutely gorgeous! The dark gritty style also has an elegance that matches the story perfectly. Also I love the character designs so much! Each one is unique and aesthetically pleasing. And not only are the designs great but all of the characters introduced are so intriguing. The main character Makoto is so messed up and the foreshadowing of his progression gave me the shivers. By contrast the demon J is so eccentric and amusing. Even so J is also evil and sadistic and gives me the shivers too. The other two characters are really odd but very likeable. I was so caught up in the events of this story that I was disappointed when it ended. Needless to say I am very excited to see what is going to happen next. Now this manga isn’t for everyone. It is very disturbing and rather gross at times. That being said I found the dark parts are balanced out perfectly with the lighter funnier moments. It’s strange how messed up it is but yet has this air of not taking it too seriously somehow. Overall I really liked this and I can’t wait for volume 2! The song I chose is Dead as F*ck:Not My Type by Motionless in White.
