‘Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody’ Volume 7 Manga Highlight

Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody is a fantasy isekai manga series written by Japanese author Hiro Ainana with artwork from Ayamegumu and shri. The Tokyo-based publishing company Fujimi Shobo released it originally with Yen Press bringing this seventh volume to the United States.

While bringing the Elf Princess Mia to her homeland, Satou, Arisa, Liza, and the rest of his companions find themselves stopped in Sedum City. There, they run into Inenimaana, the apprentice of the Forest Witch who was attacked while delivering potions to a local Prince. Because of the damage, the Prince vows to break his deal unless the apprentice can deliver the rest of the potions. Satou and his group agree to help him, but a conspiracy is afoot to stop them.

As much as I have enjoyed previous entries, this one felt more like a side quest. Oh sure, the artwork was excellent and there was some good character development. That being said, I did feel like the story was misplaced. Previously, the group had dealt with monsters and evil men, but this time they just kind of deal with a political plot. It was not necessarily boring, but it just felt out of place from the current arc. I know that manga and anime are notorious for “filler” plots to help pad the stories. Perhaps that was happening here, but I’m anxious to get back to the main story arc.
