Opinion: So this is another “mystery” series from the author of Arisa. I’ll be honest I was expecting a lot more since Arisa was so good. This series over the past few volumes just fell flat.

Art is ok, it’s not my favourite. I find the people very child like and I don’t think it works for the josei tone this series is aiming for. It’s very sparkly and run of the mill shoujo.

The characters are so boring. The heroine feels like such a flat character only meant to drive the plot. It feels like the plot came first and everything else was inconsequential. Because of this I really didn’t care about the heroine and her plight, the magic of suspense disappeared.

In terms of romance it’s really flat and boring as well. It feels like there could have been no romance and the story would be the same. Disappointing but if you’re bored you might as well read. It’s not unreadable.

Final Rating: 3/5

Extra: From the author of Arisa
