Captain Corinth: The Galactic Navy Officer Becomes an Adventurer Volume 2 is a manga based on a science fiction light novel series by Atsuhiko Itoh and illustrated by Tomomasa Takuma. The character designs were handled by the artist known as himesuz. The books are published by Kadokawa in Japan and licensed to One Peace Books in the United States.
Shortly after his vessel crashed, Alan Corinth finds himself on a planet where magic is seemingly real. After healing his companion Cleria’s wounds, he sets off with her and helps save a town from some wild beasts. Agreeing to escort the town’s trade wagon, Corinth and Cleria travel with them. Soon after, they are attacked by bandits, and some secrets are revealed about Cleria and why she is in exile.
I think the artwork is very well done. Takuma does a good job of crafting the action, the characters, and showing what is happening from page to page. I also like how they show the roving forests compared to the sterile atmosphere of the space vessels. That was especially well done.
If you are looking for a new sci-fi or fantasy IP to read, this one is where to go. Itoh does a great job of bringing a tale that brings us the best of both worlds. Corinth is brave, smart, and adaptable to the situation. Likewise, Cleria is strong, graceful, and fierce. The two of them have good chemistry working together.
