Manala Next Door
is a comic done by Humon
, of Scandinavia and the World
fame. It's actually a spinoff of Niels
in that Jacob was originally a demon only Peter could see, and possibly
a drug-induced hallucination. Characters include angels, demons, and monsters from around the world
Manala Next Door provides examples of the following tropes:
- All Men Are Perverts: Even the angels. In the Youkai Bar strip, the male angel after spotting cute Nini, was pleased to stay...until he spotted a tanuki looking at him.
- All Myths Are True
- Barbie Doll Anatomy: Nini.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Beware Nini. With a perfectly cute Slasher Smile, she commits the most gruesome acts.
- Bizarre Sexual Dimorphism: Tengu and harpies... are the same species.
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Jabob telling to Nini that he, as a shapeshifter, keeps his butt juicy and perfect for her. She literally cries over such a great expression of love.
- Cute Monster Girl: Nini the Kappa.
- Eats Babies: Nini. And it's adorable.
- The Fundamentalist: The angels.
- Gentle Giant: Jacob, at least around other demons. Not so much for humans.
- Groin Attack: One strip presents us with a Sazae-oni, a Youkai that makes pearls with men's testicules. Lilith gives her a high five, Nini properly protects her boyfriend's crotch.
- Hartman Hips: Nini's, described by Humon as "rocking."
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Jacob and Nini.
- Jerkass Genie: When demon law required Jacob and Nini to grant a wish...
- Literal Genie: The guy did wish for them to be a maid and butler, he just never specified who would be in each role.
- Pet the Dog: Jacob likes human children, so won't let Nini eat them.
- Raised by Orcs: Jacob is a nature spirit who was raised by Asura, and thus became a demon.
- Really Gets Around: Has Jacob ever met a female — or male — he hasn't slept with?
- Real Men Wear Pink: Jacob has many pictures wearing pink or making pink flowers out of thin air for Nini. Even commentaries say that he makes pink look manly.
- Straw Feminist: Lilith.
- Too Kinky to Torture: The guy from an Imageboard.
- Voluntary Shapeshifter: Jacob can be literally everything someone wants. Too bad Nini is only interested in his butt.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: Jacob and Nini as a maid and butler (respectively).
