Hameln no Violin Hiki  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Pandora's Box led a cursed existence. Through the curiosity of a woman, evil was unleashed and very nearly covered the world in darkness. Miraculously, humanity managed to seal Maou Kestra back into the box, but only with immense sacrifices. Even without their lord, the demons are still a formidable force that has only grown stronger with time, locked in the abandoned capital of the North, Hameln. Fifteen years have passed since that fateful battle...

Enter Hamel, a travelling minstrel who is so self-centered that he'd sooner cook his guardian crow (and family friend), Oboe, than go hungry for even a minute. Welcome to the world of music and hilarious insanity that is the Violinist of Hameln. Watch as Hamel takes cheap shots at his opponents and bashes pigeons with his giant violin and turns them into dinner.

How WILL the world be saved from Maou Kestra (it's a pun for orchestra, if you haven't noticed) with a hero such as this?

One of the best mangas I've come across

If you are after a good story, this is the right choice. The characters are really unique, too. You have all sorts of them here - the bishounen with a dark past (the main "hero") is of course one of the most attractive ones))
This is the only manga, which made me laugh out loud, and not once or twice. Even when the situation becomes really tense, the author finds a way to insert a scene so hilarious that it'll make you laugh, even if you are not disposed to at the moment...
When I found this manga, I read the first chapter and thought "I never cared LESS for a story", but in some time, when I was desperately seeking some - any! - comics to read, I came across it again, and I continued. Oh my god, I think that if I have done a single thing right in my life - that was it. Read it, love it, laugh over it!

Sure, you have to love wacky comedies to like Violinist of Hameln, but if you like wacky comedies, you WILL love Violinist of Hameln. It's one of the only series that make me laugh out loud, with quite the good plot too (chapter 55, can't wait to read the next). I can read it three times a week and never get bored, it's just that good. Sizer-sama...

Great manga. You never get bored with it. There is angs and great humor. You gotta try it. very originally shaped after music and its world. Drawings are not beautiful but very tuned to the story. Check this out!!!

I read the first few chapters, and didn't like it that much. The jokes are too forced, and it got old to me. It IS wacky and outrageous, like all the other reviews say, but this isn't my type of comedy. Its comedy is similar to Bowling King and Mr. Fullswing, but I actually like Mr. Fullswing.

This is the funniest, the most outrageous manga I have ever read. I do not reccommend drinking or eating while reading it.

Nowdays its so very difficult to find this kind of unique theme manga , with comedy adventure mixed well with linear and solid storyline, Violinist of Hameln becomes one of my best fav manga.
How does it feel when your main character first impression is cool guy / bishounen guy , but suddenly he change his personality into jackass guy attitude which always causing trouble for everyone ?
Mangaka of this series know how to make a good varied joke that can makes you ROFLMAO every 5 pages.Despite of how much comedy in this manga , it has serious story sometimes , battle too, both balanced well, and it always keep in the main story track.
Unlike other manga that only dwell into sub quest / side story , in here you already know where the story wants to be headed , but it doesn't get lame because of that. Why ? because as the story progress you will unveil the mystery or unsolved question pieces by pieces.
You will never got bored ,plot becomes interesting as the story progress , as well as twist.
If any of you like playing RPG , this manga had some RPG element in it just like slayers anime .
And if you prefer some unique original theme, you should read this , you probably wants to know how the hell some musician going to fight ogre ,don't you?

The series is bizarre and hilarious with endless wacky moment, with its story that "suppose" to have a tragic plot... it makes all possible serious moments another room to make more hilarious jokes.
