Romance Comedy Manga Chronicles Struggles of Having No Face
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Romantic comedy manga like Monster Musume have focused on the struggles of interspecies romance. What do you do when a harpy needs to lay an egg or a lamia needs to shed her skin? These intriguing twists on the romantic fiction have led to a whole new subgenre about wooing monsters of every stripe. Haru Itaki's Kanojo ni Awaseru Kao ga nai, or literally "I Have no Face to Meet Hers" takes a whole new approach to H.G. Wells' The Invisible Man.
The story follows Mutō, a boy who was born without a face. He's in love with his childhood friend Kaori, but struggles to make his feelings known as he has no visible expressions. Still, the two have learned a way to communicate.
The first volume of Kanojo ni Awaseru Kao ga nai went on sale on June 19. Itaki also serializes the action horror manga Shikabanechō Undead on Mag Garden's Comic Beat's website. That story follows a high school teacher trying to return is zombified sister back to normal.
