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.
