I'm not gonna lie, this was a very weird and strange read for me.

I went going in assuming this was a kid friendly, Disney manga. It's Stitch to obviously it's got to be some goofy, kid loving fun... right? Right? This is definitely more of a pre-teen book with the half naked man (who seemed a little sexualized, in my opinion) and the death and murder brought up. It's not a book I'd want to show one of the typical age groups/audience of Lilo and Stitch (which I'd think would be children).

Other than that, this book is an interesting read! We follow Stitch (the famous, blue raccoon... or panda... or alien?) landing on Earth and meeting a group of Samurai (out doing the whole murder thing). The head Samurai meets Stitch and instantly falls in love (like we all did) and then good hijinks and trouble starts. This book was amusing and comedic at points. It'll make you smile for sure. It didn't totally feel like it fit into the Lilo and Stitch world, but it was definitely a cool addition.

I did love the little Stitch icons in the corner of some of the pages. That was a nice touch that made me smile!

My other note was all of the advertisements for Disney Manga. Now I want to read through all of them! I had no idea there was a world of Disney Manga hidden out there... My inner child and 90s baby wants all of them!

Three out of five stars.

Thank you to NetGalley, Disney Manga and Independent Publishers Group for providing me a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

Odd little book with an odd premise. Stitch, instead of landing in modern day Hawaii, lands in sengoku-era Japan and is adopted by a cruel warlord who immediately stops being a cruel warlord because he's too taken in by how cute Stitch is and trying to make Stitch happy. There are a lot of callbacks to the original movie. (Stitch's name still being Stitch for one.) It reads like something the author got a lot of enjoyment thinking up and crafting, but I'm not sure there's anything of great interest for me beyond a mild curiosity for such a unique idea.… (mere)
