Spoiler Free Review:
They look good together, right?!
Alright, Dante’s Blackmailed Bride is based of a real novel by Day Leclaire. And it is good. This manga is fast paced and very nerve wrecking. You end up being on edge from wondering what on earth is going to happen.
Sev is your typical manga male protagonist, stubborn, does whatever he wants, CEO, gets whatever he wants. Resorts to blackmail to get her.
Francesca, not your typical female manga protagonist. She is smart, protects who she loves and goes against him repeatedly. Falls for the blackmail, but hits back at the same time.
The heat of the inferno is kind of a Dante curse or blessing. Any member of the Dante family gets this strong blazing heat the second they lay eyes on their soulmate. This is what happens with Sev as he spots her for the first time. Naturally, he drops everything and proceeds to go after her.
Francesca, an orphan who is trying to keep a job she loves, has problems of her own. Him being the enemy of their workplace isn’t exactly ideal. We get to explore this dynamic and enjoy the story of how this couple met. Personally, I find this similar to so many different manga’s out there. So, it doesn’t stand out to me in any way apart from it being adapted from a novel.
My final verdict: good to pass the time.
Until Next Time!
