Quick Manga Review: Soara and the House of Monsters Volume 1

Title: Soara and the House of Monsters Vol. 1
Author: Hidenori Yamaji
Genre: Comics; Graphic Novel; Manga
Publication Date: September 5, 2023
Publisher: Penguin Random House

In this delightful and intricately illustrated fantasy tale, a girl who was raised to fight monsters starts building cozy homes for them instead!

Soara is a young orphan girl who was raised by knights and trained to fight against marauding monsters. By the time Soara is old enough to join the fray, her blade is no longer needed, as peace has been declared with monsters. Searching for a new calling, Soara stumbles upon Kirik the dwarf, Architect of the Monster World. Suddenly, instead of fighting monsters, Soara finds herself working alongside Kirik to build comfortable homes for monsterkind! In the course of her new career, will Soara find a home for herself?


 Hello Fellow Reader,

I liked this so much, I thought it was so cute and unique. First off the art style was lovely and every panel looks great. I didn't have trouble making out what anything was, while also enjoying the art. The Story was so cute, I can't wait to see how Soara grows throughout the series. I do wish we saw more about the Kirik and his band of dwarf builders, as I am so curious about them. They seem well known throughout the monster kingdom so the fact that Soara has never heard about them is weird but I can't wait to learn more about them.

Overall, a fun new manga series I can't wait to see the next one.
