Big Hero 6, Volume 2: 11/26/20

Big Hero 6, Volume 2

Big Hero 6, Volume 2 by Haruki Ueno is the conclusion to the manga adaptation of the Disney film. Disney, for whatever reason, only seems to go for duologies for their manga. Big Hero 6, though, has enough world building to really need more volumes.

Volume 1 made so many changes to the world, premise, and basic plot that only the first act of the film was covered. To force this adaptation into two volumes, essentially the last act is cut, thus moving the trip through the portal to the secret island, rather than the epic fight at HQ in the City.

Put bluntly, volume 2 feels rushed and half formed. I really want to see more of Ueno's version of the characters and city. There's a lot of good insight here that isn't allowed to fully develop.

Four stars
