Blan Bloody Dining 1

Those of you who still remembers Kindaichi (Case Files) and how he always swears on his grandpa’s name, please raise up your hands. I didn’t read its manga nor seen its anime but I remember watching the live action of it on my local TV broadcast when I was younger. For those who don’t know, Kindaichi was a smart ass who was able to solve murder cases before the police does (or simply, just click on that the Kindaichi link to read more about it). I loved that show!

Anyway, if you’re wondering why I’m talking about Kindaichi when I’m reviewing BLANの食卓, simple, that’s because BLANの食卓 is like Kindaichi Case Files. Except that he doesn’t have a grandpa to swear on. Haha, anyway, read on for the review!

Yakushimaru Tooru is a high school student who has just binded a contract with Blan, an angel who feeds on caught criminals’ souls. As Blan’s servant, Tooru’s mission is to find the culprits behind the murder cases that occur near him. Tooru received his first case immediately after the contract. The art teacher was murdered in a classroom. Upon arriving the crime scene, Tooru managed to deduce why the teacher was leaning in such an awkward position, held a chiselling knife in her hand and why a wooden sculpture was moved away from its original position. After deducing so much it was not long before the killer was caught and the hungry Blan immediately began her feast on her first prey.

I have yet to read beyond the first chapter of the manga, so I can’t say much more lest I give out wrong information. But it’s probably going to continue in a case-by-case manner, much like any other detective case files shows. So if you liked Kindaichi Case Files or mind-engaging stuff, quizzes and puzzles, then this is probably for you!

Humor (How much I laughed): 5/10 (Humor will not be why you read this anyway!)
Plot (Storyline): 7/10
Character Design (Well, just… Character Design): 7/10
Overall (Overall feel of the manga): 7/10 (Read it if you like mind-engaging activities)

This title is currently only published in Japanese, if I am not wrong. Do correct me if I am wrong though.

これが昨日言ってたマンガだね。
金田一なつかしい。ドラマは最初のシーズン1の方は見てた。

推理探偵ものは結構好き。
ガンガンに連載か。帰りにブックオフ寄ろう。

食卓なんて言うから料理マンガかと思ったよ。

ブックオフは日本でたくさん店舗のある古本屋だね。古本だから安く買えるよ、100円(1ドルくらい?)とか・・・

ああ、そうですね。食卓だもんね。でも、あのブランっていうの子は掴まえた罪人の魂を食うのです。それがブランの食卓である。その書評を読めなかったか?

主人公はその天使と契りを交わして使徒になる。彼の使命は殺人の裏にある謎を解いて罪人を天使に差し出して腹を満たすこと。
でないと天使はごちそうにありつけないというわけか。

 そういう意味の食卓ね…

はい。その通りです。バンギンさんの日本語も英語も凄いですね。僕の日本語もそれ程だったら…。

ルル君(と呼んでもいい?)には負けるよ。

日本に来たこともなくてその若さでこれほどの日本語が書ける人はそうそういないよ。
話す方も聞いてみたいなw

いいんです^^呼び捨てもいいんですよ。

そうですね。確かにここまで来たのは本当に苦労だったがヤハリまだまだですよ、僕は。シンガポールである人は日本語を僕より短い間で勉強し、今はもうJLPT1の持主。一方僕はまだJLPT2しかない事は汚辱です。

話す方は本当に駄目ですから…。ちょっと遅いんです。言葉を考える時間が必要ですから。^^でも、僕も話したいんです。そうじゃなければ、一緒うまく喋られないですから。
