Disney Mirrorverse: Belle Manga

05 May 2024 - 03:27 AM

So, you guys are probably wondering, "Derock, why the hell are you posting a Disney topic in the Otaku Square?!" Hold on, just a second! This is about a spin-off that release an one-shot manga book and it is an alternative story and universe of Beauty and the Beast. Just to give you guys a heads up, this is not related to Kingdom Hearts!


And you guys are probably asking me, "What is Disney Mirrorverse?"


Disney Mirrorverse is an Action RPG mobile game (yeah, I know but hear me out!) came out in 2022 developed by Kabam Games, which starred various Disney and Pixar characters into an alternate/distorted universe where various heroes and villains having access to stellar magic that boosted up and amplify their abilities or for some heroes that I will provide examples, evolved and giving them new abilities. The premise is that the Mirrorverse was created by two stars or mirrors, one's light: the Stellar Mirror, and one's dark: the Dark Mirror. These mirrors created the universe that is "familiar, yet different". With that magic, it created distorted version of the Disney and Pixar universes. Mickey Mouse was reached out by the Stellar Mirror and became the first Guardian. He then recruited others characters in different worlds to become Guardians so they can access the stellar magic. The Dark Mirror was discovered by Jafar who had shattered it and overused its power. He lost it and it was later discovered by Maleficent, who used the mirror to created the Fractured, mirrored versions of characters whom has no free will and only crave for destruction. She sent them to destroy the Stellar Mirror which forces Mickey to summon the other Guardians to defend it. 


In the game and its updates, it is not just the normal Disney heroes, heroines and villains that were known to fight. As I said, we have some characters that were upgraded, like certain Disney Princesses: Snow White (who now can fight with a battle axe and she has her own novel on how she became a Guardian), Tiana (who is a healer and chemist, also appeared in Snow White's novel) and Belle, in which I would talk about in a moment. Then we have unexpected characters: Disney live-action movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean (Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth Swann) and Jungle Cruise (Frank Wolff), characters that we didn't even know they can fight such as Dory from Finding Nemo, in which she's in a robotic, mobilized fish tank, Tigger from Winnie the Pooh, Baloo (not the Jungle Book version BUT the TaleSpin version) and we have Kermit, YES Kermit the Frog from The Muppets!


This manga is the prequel of how Belle became a Guardian. This version of Belle is not just an Action Girl but an Action Mage!


So, let me give you guys a summary:


Mirrorverse Belle


So, yeah that's the whole manga. No more, no less. I liked this alternate Belle is more snippy and sarcastic to Gaston. However, she is like her original self but more inciteful and resourceful. She had a dream come true of being part of an adventure that she always read about. We also see Adam/Beast more remorseful when trying to save his castle staff from the curse. And he's a bit more Tsundere at the end. So, despite some scenes skipped some stuff, it is a good read.
