I think it’s safe to say that Booty Royale isn’t trying to tell a dynamic story – it’s just trying to have fun. It’s more sex than story, more comedy than serious drama, and certainly more porn than plot. Don’t come to this series expecting one girl’s rags to riches story: Misora’s desire to sing gets quickly shifted to her just doing odd jobs and hustling using her bodacious assets, so it’s best to temper your expectations going in.
There’s this intimacy that permeates every moment you spend with her as a reader, and closing the book feels like I’m pulling the curtain back from a peek into a person’s life after getting to swim through their memories. And while there’s lots of genuinely relatable humor, there’s also a lot of tangible pain here on these pages, all illustrated in Nagata Kabi’s evocative, unique art style, with a slick persimmon orange screentone that adds a certain oomph to this volume.

Fans of Komi Can’t Communicate will feel right at home with Amane. I also think there’s some crossover appeal for fans of Please Tell Me! Galko-chan. Even if you’ve never engaged with either of those works, there’s definitely something here for every kind of fan, especially those who really vibe with the shoujo genre in general.
Inside Mari Volume 1 is a really strong first volume in a series that’s haunting, discomforting, and curious all the same. I have no clue where this story will go, though I’m eager to pick up volume 2 and get current with the series. Isao and Mari’s body switch, as well as the mystery of why it happened, is an intriguing hook that will keep fans of mystery and drama eagerly waiting to see how things unfold.
