Manga Monday: Love After World Domination, Vol. 1

Series: Love After World Domination, Vol. 1
Author: Hiroshi Nada
Artist: Wakamatsu Takahiro
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Released: October 5, 2021
Received: NetGalley


In a world where heroes and villains exist, how long do you think it would take before they start falling in love with their opponents? It’s bound to happen, right? Enter Fudo Aikawa, aka Red Gelato of the Gelato Five, and Gekko, Desumi Magahara.

They live on opposite sides of this war. One is a hero, the other a queen among villains. Will their love survive? Can they keep it hidden? What will happen should their love come out into the open?


Okay, Love After World Domination, Vol. 1 is a seriously funny and cute series. You’ll probably enjoy this series if you love forbidden romances with a sense of humor and an overall light touch! Given how many dark series are out there, I appreciated this lighter read.

My only regret about this series? It starts with our two leads already in love. I would have adored the chance to see them meet and fall in love. That will have a lot of opportunities if you ask me. However, I understand and appreciate what the author is trying to do here by throwing us into the middle of the romance.

This is a series to look out for, as it will likely be worth following. I’m not sure how long they can keep things a secret – especially in a more comedic telling. That alone means that somebody is going to mess up at some point. Can’t wait to see how it goes.
