Ral & Grad (vol. 1) by Tsuneo Takano, translated by Tony Cusdin with English adaptation by Kelly Sue DeConnick [in Bloomsbury Review]
Marked with a “Parental Advisory,” this is not your regular kiddie fare. Imprisoned in darkness since birth, Ral and his powerful shadow dragon, Grad, who shares Ral’s very being, are finally released at age 15 to save their world, currently under attack by evil shadow legions.
In the light, curiously naive Ral becomes instantly enamored of breasts and the women attached to them. Given his new obsession, his lifelong goal is to protect and preserve the female race. Guided by his ever-patient tutor, Ms. Mio, Ral, and Grad together are the only hope for future salvation.
