This is my first review in a while! So do forgive me if I am a little rusty.
I went into this series completely blind. To be honest, it came in a package deal I got! It was a part of the Humble Manga Bundle: Fantasy by Kodansha Comics deal! I must state, this is NOT a sponsored review. My thoughts are my own. I will however speak to you of how wonderful Humble Bundle is. I love this site, as I can find new and interesting things and support not only them, but charity as well!
I knew nothing of the series and decided for it to be my first read, and boy am I glad I did!
The story starts out with our protagonist; the fledgling witch Makoto and her cat familiar Chito. The story is very lighthearted and feels like it really could be something that could happen.
From making friends and giving them dangerous plants to meeting the Harbinger of Spring and her adorable little cousin… I definitely will be continuing this series and suggest this to anyone who loves a little magic with their slice of life!
My Rating: 4/5
Would I/Who would I recommend it (too): Anyone who has a good hankering for some light fantasy and homey feeling reads.
