The Adonis Next Door Manga Adaption

Did anyone know that The Adonis Next Door now has a manga? I’m not sure when it started but there’s around 80 chapters now. Chapter ~130 is around chapter 59 of the manga. You can find the English translation of some chapters on YouTube.

My thoughts:

The art is pretty but I think I prefer the novel. Qin Zhiai feels a bit more weak and timid in the manga than I expected. I guess this can’t be helped since you can’t read her thoughts but I wish she would look less weak and sheepish when she’s in front of people that are not Gu Yusheng (I expect her to look timid in front of Gu Yusheng since she’s so scared of him, but she should look stronger in front of other people). Like the scene with Yu Shali, the novel described her as calm and collected, but in the manga she still looks weak (http://m.wuyouhui.net/lianai/geqiangyounanshenqiangxingxiangai100tian/124910.html?p=6) – I’m thinking it might be a problem with how her character is drawn – the drooping eyes maybe?

Also, I don’t know why, but for some reason, the artist turned the housekeeper into a young lady with glasses.

And Yay! I got the dress described in chapter 115?116? right – the manga version of the dress is a bit more conservative than what is described in the novel though. Really wish I found the manga earlier so I wouldn’t have had to search all over to work out how it was supposed to look like.

Anyway, overall, it is a good adaption and follows the novel very closely so it’s worth checking out. Based on the chapter titles, chapter 80 of the manga is already around chapter 200 of the novel.
