Book Rating:8 Characters: Flying Witch, 1 (ふらいんぐうぃっち [flying Witch] Book 1) First published: March 27th 2017Rating: 7.96 stars GoodReads:Flying Witch, 1 Review: This is such a cute feel good manga. Originally I saw this anime as it was simulcast through an anime service and I fell in love with it. So glad that they are publishing it in English so I can continue the series! This first volume and the anime are very similar. Flying Witch is not drama filled or super intense, but if you’re looking for a manga that is laid back I highly recommend it!

Le résumé est seul apte pour le moment à nous donner quelques pistes, le reste étant à l’appréciation du lecteur qui commence à se poser quelques questions. La fin nous dirige certainement vers un début réel de faits dans lequel on aura plus que des histoires diverses, qui sont agréables à lire, avec quelque chose de plus important à se mettre sous

Book Rating:8.8 Characters: 氷菓 1 [Hyouka 1] (Hyouka Book 1) First published: April 24th 2012Rating: 8.76 stars GoodReads:氷菓 1 [Hyouka 1] Review: Not only I read this novel (though online translated), I also recommend everyone to watch the anime. It’s intriguing, exciting, knowledgable and trust me you’d want more when it ends! Hotarou’s character may annoy you at first, since he’s not very sociable and, as I say it, rather lazy though he does not want to waste his time, he makes such a great friend and he has a broad knowledge making you wish to have such a friend.

I thought it was okay, but it didn’t really grab me. To be fair, I haven’t watched Neon Genesis Evangelion, so this might be hurting my impressions on the comic. I’ll probably revisit after I finish watching the show.

The introduction of Kaworu brings with it some ugly homophobia, and Kaworu himself comes across as super-predatory. Shinji wavers between Asuka and Rei, and it’s pretty clear that the material going forward is going to perpetuate this state of affairs as long as possible. That said, there are some scenes that are worth the read, especially when the…

I am very much looking forward to the second volume and have already pre-ordered it!

Not sure how the original’s compared but I really like the artwork and the story is interesting so far. All the characters are very like able.

This was still enjoyable even after I’ve watched the anime, I still laughed.
