Manga Review: The Strings Dolls



One day, Shiro and his little sister, Koyori, who has been permanently crippled after an accident, download a peculiar game called “Strings Dolls.” Whenever you have someone in your camera screen, the game allows you to move them around like a puppet. Shiro and Koyori are filled with joyl to realize that this magical game can, at least temporarily, restore her ability to walk! Other people, however, use it for much less noble purposes. Among the others who have downloaded the game is a mysterious player called Miyabi, who appears to be using the game to kill off his fellow players. Will Shiro be able to track down who is behind this game, and find the murderous Miyabi before it’s too late? (Source: MU)

The strings doll manga has a unique story. It’s about this game that’s created to control people like puppets and the game is called Strings Doll. Since its a shounen manga there’s bound to be a villain and the main character is obviously the hero. The manga’s art is pretty cool, and idea of the story is unique. The flow of the events was kinda predictable. Though it was a nice read. I also like how violent the manga got halfway through and it had a nice amount suspense. So overall the manga was good.

Overall Rate: 7/10
