Summary:  Chitose is a serious young woman, working for the health magazine SASSO.

In the public eye and on the ice, Kokoro is a gallant, flawless knight, but behind his glittery costumes and breathtaking spins lies a secret: he’s actually a hopeless romantic otaku, who can only land his quad jumps when Chitose is on hand to recite a spell from his favorite magical girl anime!

Opinion: When I found out Kodansha was licensing and releasing a new Ogawa series I was STOKED. Kimi wa Petto is one of my all time favourite 5/5 series, so I couldn’t wait to read this.

I’ve only read the first volume so my review may change as we go along. The one thing that will stay the same is the graphics rating. I LOVE Ogawas unique style. Crisp lines and minimalism the art is perfect.

The characters are a bit odd. It really is kinda weird seeing an adult heroine who really does look like a child. The skater is really cute and sweet. The pacing seems weird but I’m still enjoying it.

Look forward to seeing more from this series!

Final Rating: 3/5

Extra: From the author of Kimi wa Petto and I think there is a drama as well.

I just wanted to say I love how popular the website has become in the past year due to my SEO efforts. I love that I’m reaching more people and making shoujo manga easier to find for so many people! I know hardly anyone ends up on the main page, let alone reads my life posts, but just know I’m so proud of this project.

I’m sorry posts haven’t been as consistent, I know it’s pretty normal for the past ten years of the website but you would think with Canada locked down I would have more spare time. Unfortunately I don’t, I’m still working 40 hrs a week from home which isn’t optimal but it’s the best shot we’ve got. I’m also mildly addicted to Animal Crossing?

I have friends and family I want to see, but friends and family I want to protect. Stay inside! Read manga!

I hope to have more reviews coming up. Even if I I’m not reviewing I’m ALWAYS reading manga so lots more to come. Lots of love everyone, stay safe!
