With all that said I'd say if you love the books and love Manga its worth a shot to get these and see for yourself, good luck!
Please follow me on my blog :) Review originally posted on Vellum Voyages.
This is a two volume middle-grade, direct adaptation of Disney's 2017 film "The Beauty and the Beast" in manga format. I'm reviewing both volumes together because I don't see the need for separate reviews for either book. Volume 1: Belle's Tale is told entirely in Belle's point of view and Volume 2 from the Beast's.
This is definitely intended for younger readers as there isn't a lot of complexity or depth to the storylines and it is very quick reading. Reading from an adult's point of view it falls flat and I wasn't feeling the magic, even though it sticks close to the movie. The prologue in Volume two was a bit strange and felt tacked on.
Overall, the graphics were nice but I wasn't blown away and I preferred the Beast's point of view to Belle's. It's a nice companion to the movie but not a necessary one unless your kids are die-hard fans.

The combination of Manga and Disney's new adaptation of the Beauty and the Beast story. With added pages showing drawing line work and other aspects of the story.
the new adaptation of the story adds to the Disney original with a back story of her mother and that of the beast that changes the tone of the story.
The Manga drawing pattern blends the original Disney concept and the new artist changes to the story in the theaters.
A Manga adaptation of the recent live-action Disney film, Beauty and the Beast. This story follows along closely with the movie and is told from Belle's perspective. The illustrations are enchanting (I agree with another reviewer that the Beast looks better in his Manga manifestation) and the cover is beautiful. For Beauty and the Beast fans and Manga readers.
