Shonen Jump brings Aliens Area and RuriDragon: first impressions

Two new manga in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine by newcomers: Aliens Area by Fusai Naba and RuriDragon Masaoki Shindo. The first is a story a la Men in Black, the second a teen comedy

Tatsumi he is a student who has to juggle a thousand jobs to support his two little brothers. His parents died in a mysterious fire years ago. But something is changing in Tatsumi’s body, particularly her arm no longer seems under her control.

The boy does not have time to understand what is happening, because his house is invaded by only apparently human entities. The intervention of a very particular police officer will save him, introducing him to the concept of Aliens Area: backward and unprotected areas of the galaxy, where aliens can act with impunity. The earth is, of course, one of them.

The rookie Fusai Naba brings to Jump the first of two novelties that expand the magazine’s catalog. Arrived last week, the work promises action and science fiction without limits.

From the very first tables the inspiration of Aliens Area is clear: everything refers to the famous comic The Men in Black by Lowell Cunninghamobviously in shonen sauce, with hand-to-hand combat and supernatural abilities.

The novelty of Shonen Jump RuriDragon

This week, however, we have another new manga proposed to us by Shueisha: RuriDragon from Masaoki Shindo.

Aoki she is a young student who, one morning, simply wakes up with horns on her head. The girl takes her philosophically and tries to get by with her life, and, in the same way, the people around her are intrigued, but never frightened by her novelty.

However, when Aoki accidentally spits fire during a class reading, her mother has to pick her up and explain what is happening to her. Apparently, Aoki’s father, whom she has never known, is a dragon in all respects.

RuriDragon is a comedy whose atmosphere is very reminiscent of a recent departure of Jump, MaguChan: God of Destruction. Even in this amusing work, the supernatural enters normality without causing terror, but only confusion and curiosity.

Aoki, however, unlike the Ruru of MaguChan, is a protagonist with an unenthusiastic attitude for life. All she wants is to live in peace, but her showy horns will force her into interactions that she finds tiring. The opera has excellent comic potential and is already a worthy replacement for MaguChan.
