Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody is an isekai manga series written by Japanese author Hiro Ainana with artwork from Ayamegumu and shri. Volume six was published by the Tokyo-based publishing company Fujimi Shobo with Yen Press bringing it to the United States.
Satou reunites the Elf Princess Mia with her companions. After helping them get ready to go home, the robotic Nana, teen Arisa, dethroned princess Lulu, along with demihumans Pochi, Tama, and Liza are still his companions. As they head to the next town, they are attacked by vicious animals and pinned down. Before long, they find it is not just animals, but a three-headed hydra is stalking them.
When it comes to fantasy fiction, this tale definitely is a cut above. It does a good job of combining humor and seriousness. Of course, there is some lewd humor, but it foes by fast. Satou is an interesting character who uses his knowledge of video games from his previous life to help him learn the magic within this new world.
Now I will admit, sometimes the “rules of magic” get a little confusing, but it makes up for it with its story and sense of humor. I also really enjoyed the creature designs for this one. The three-headed hydra and the wolves were cool.
This is about where the anime left off, so I am excited to see where the story goes from here.
