Graphics Rating: 7/10
Plot Rating: 7/10

Opinion: Graphics had me on the edge of not wanting to read. It looks a lot like American comics, a web comic. Cartoon? Not my thing. But it has some gorgeous moments. Especially for the main um… guy? Haha.

The story seems interesting and cute. I haven’t seen anything new yet but it’s real cool. The main character is funny, but at times I just want to roll her under a bus. If you want to be pretty, stop complaining and just try! And her friends are freaking WEIRD. The guy is hilairious though. And it does have it’s creative moments like the jelly fish so I can’t wait to read more.

Final Rating: 7/10

Extra: None
