Manga Review: Ozmafia


Ozmafia (2 volumes ongoing) - art by Yurino Tsukigase and story by Poni-Pachet Sy and Hobibox

Fuka wakes up without memory in a town divided between mafia families. She falls under the protection of the Oz Family.  Even though the title is a dead giveaway that it's going to be a fairy tale and mob, I've always had these preconceived notions that it'll be sweet and wholesome because of the soft colors and art. It's cute alright but there's a sinister feel in their dialogues and situations. But despite that, the omake really cracked me up. The humor is spot on sarcastically funny.

The characters doesn't use the obvious names of Dorothy etc. Lion was easy to recognize thanks to his clothing. But it took me longer to figure out who Tin Man was though. His personality is so "charming". And logically whoever is left should be Scarecrow. There's a scene where they pointed out that they're all men in the house, so she has to live in a different house. I find it very gentlemanly and a fresh breakaway from the cohabitation trope. By the way, I've also created 'amnesia' and 'mafia' labels or tags. 

The obvious fairy tale names were given to the characters of the other families (or other classic stories). I really though Scarlet was a girl! I can sense there's a hidden secret in their family. All the characters looks suspicious including the heroine. But bad news, the project hasn't been worked on for a long time. On a bright side, this is based on otome so you can implore Google as to what happens next.
