Graphics Rating: 5/5
Plot Rating: 5/5
Opinion: Very unique. Slender and yet delicate. Very expressive as well, which is fantastic when you have a very stoic character. The smallest details count.
SO I was too tired to review yesterday so I’m cheating and putting this one up for yesterday and another one up for today. Couldn’t think of anything to review since I’ve been busy. Go to my handy dandy stuff to review list and was floored by the fact I STILL hadn’t reviewed Sarashi Asobi despite starting it when it when the first chapter was scanlated; AND based on the fact that it is so absolutely amazing!
The main character is a sweet tsundere. She is so loveable and a bit of a clutz but an amazing heroine. She never waits for some guy to come save her, she will always stand up for herself and the ones she loves. One of the best heroines I’ve come across in a while. The male counter part and even her friends is/are so amazing as well. Very three dimensional characters that are easy to fall in love with.
The supernatural part of the plot was SO INTERESTING. Like, EXTREMELY creative. Kinda sad that it ended at two volumes… but I’m okay with how it ended. Sometimes it’s better to leave the party at the height rather the hang over.
Final Rating: 5/5
