Impression: This is about a girl named Pam who gets sucked into another world populated by spirits, demons and angels but absolutely no humans. She herself is no longer human as her body has become that of a devil’s. A mysterious man soon shows up to save her from the angel named Linfa who attacked her for trespassing and he tells her she can only go back to her world if she works hard to become a full-fledged devil. The author shows that he is incredibly creative with this manga as he shows us a brilliantly vibrant world through his amazing artwork. This alternate world of his reminds me a lot of the Legend of Mana series with the huge tree and the friendly looking spirits. The characters are also a lot of fun and I would have given an S score for that department if it weren’t for the way it ended. It wasn’t bad but I felt like it should have been elaborated more instead of rushing things. There was a lot of build up that didn’t pay off as well as they could have that I think that one or two more chapters would have solved. But the main reason why the ending left me unsatisfied was because of how they settled Linfa and Pam’s relationship! There was great development for Linfa’s tsundere progression but Pam didn’t even give a hint of having any romantic feelings towards her until the very end. Seriously! A proper epilogue would have been REALLY nice since the ending just leaves you wanting for MOAR! MOAR BUILD UP! MOAR PAY-OFFS! And most important of all… MOAR YURI!!!
