  • Recs for A Centaur's Life ?

    Widgets Magazine
    Can anyone recommend Kei Murayama's A Centaur's Life? Is there an overarching plot, or just random scenes from the life of a teenage mythological creature?

    Being a teenager is never easy... especially for a centaur!

    Himeno is a sweet, shy girl, who, like many teens her age, struggles with the trials and tribulations of attending high school. The difference is she's a centaur - but she's not alone. In fact, all of her classmates are supernatural creatures, sporting either horns, wings, tails, halos, or some other unearthly body appendage.

    Yet despite their fantastical natures, Himeno and her best friends - the dragon-winged Nozomi and Kyoko with her spiraled horns - are down-to-earth, fun-loving teenagers who grapple with issues of life and love in a mostly normal daily school setting.
    "The roaring of lions, the howling of wolves, the raging of the stormy sea, and the destructive sword, are portions of eternity too great for the eye of man."

    -William Blake, "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell"

    I haven't read the latest one yet, but the first two were basically slice-of-life with an ambling approach to world-exploration. I'm not sure the worldbuilding is solid yet, but it's basically low-impact moe, with a side of "mildly prurient", at least for the first volume. The least-sketchy of Seven Seas' "monster girl" titles.
