Now on to my review. The manga felt short and rushed, but the story was well-generalized to the book. Like a lot of what other reviewers wrote, I agree that the manga adds to the book if you're looking for visual ideas. If you're not a manga/anime fan though, you might struggle with how quickly the story moves. Just remember: books explain things in greater detail. Whatever's described in several paragraphs might show up as 1/2 of a page in drawing, so in a way, it makes sense why the comic feels like it's moving fast.
The sex scenes in this comic were more tamed. The mangas are marketed toward young adult and adult readers after all. It doesn't bother me too much for that reason but if you're looking for something juicy, as I said, pick up the book! You won't be disappointed.
All in all, I highly recommend reading the book for greater context of the plot, then picking up this manga for visual support or fun reading. I enjoyed this comic as a long-time manga lover and fan of the novels. I thought it was a fun addition to what was already other there.
Also, I took the character designs as they were. I thought Earithen did a good job reimagining them. Even though they weren't as I had imagined, I'm sure it's not easy drawing 12 warriors and their partners without having any of them look the same. I think Earithen did what was needed to make each person look as distinctly different as possible. Also in Japanese manga, it's common to see male characters with some aspect of femininity, hence Torin, Lucien and Paris' seemingly unconventional long hair. You might understand this better if you're used to manga art. Otherwise if you're interested in reading this and you're completely new to this, I say be open minded.
They are aware of the problem but since its on the publishers end, they cant make it available on the other devices.
