Brigadoon is a fairly interesting story about a girl and her struggles, It isnít amazing but I found it to be a worthwhile read.
Marin is a poor orphan girl who lives in a row house with an odd collection of people that take care of her. One day while praying at the local shrine Marin meets a giant blue warrior that calls itself Melan. Melan is an artificial being called a monomekian. Melan vows to protect Marin especially from the other Monomekians that come after her. Although Marin doesnít know exactly the reason she is being attacked she knows that it has something to do with the world in the sky called Brigadoon and the upcoming day of Pasca. Slowly Marin realizes that the very fate of the world could rest on her shoulders, which makes the stress of her every day life that much harder to bear.
Brigadoon is a manga series that is based off of an anime series. While these types of manga are often the bottom of the barrel I found this particular manga to be competently made. Even though this is a manga with robots and strange cat aliens it still manages to capture the plight of a young orphan girl fairly well and uses it as the storyís focus. With a couple of exceptions though the rest of the cast is pretty flat. Although the manga is set in the year 1969 not much is made of the time period giving it a timeless quality. As for my recommendation I can give Brigadoon a tepid recommendation, I am not telling you to buy it but if you do you wonít be wasting your money.
