Yozakura Quartet: Volume 1 is an interesting read that left me a little confused the first time through it. Sometimes, in big battle scenes, it is very hard to tell what is going on. And then when the dialog fails to fully explain what is going on, I sometimes feel left out in the dark with no flashlight. But leafing back through it for this review, I was better able to understand what was going on.

The artwork is very good and the concept has a lot of potential.

The main problem I was having th
I saw the anime (all of them) when they aired. I already had Volume 2 and 3 for this manga, but I couldn't find Volume 1. So you can imagine how happy I was when I found it.

The manga is really fun, it is all kind of short stories, which make up one big story. There were enough new parts, considering the anime didn't cover everything.

I loved the story about the dog and the Germany trip the most. Poor Kotoha though, wanting to go on a trip to Germany and then that happens. I am sure she will get

Synopsis: A supernatural comedy manga created by Suzuhito Yasuda, the series follows the members of the Hiizumi Seikatsu Soudan Jimusho (Hiizumi's Everyday-life Consultation Office), a group of three women with superpowers and one normal guy. As Del Ray (the publisher) puts it, "Hime is a superheroine. Ao can read minds. Kotoha can conjure up anything with the right word. And Akina . . . well, he’s just a regular guy..."

In addition to being a superheroine, Hime is also the mayo

Having watched both of the anime series and read all five volumes that have been translated and I can easily say that Yozakura Quartet is one of my favorite series.
Combining a creative and original universe with a diverse and well developed cast, I found the series to be unique and extremely entertaining.
The story contains the perfect ratio supernatural/fantasy/action elements and slice-of-life moments and ranges from funny and lighthearted to intense and heart wrenching.
I hope that Kodansha

The artwork was so much better than the story, which may be because the creator is primarily an artist. The notes in the book explain the difficulties the editor had with various early versions of this story, and I think that the editor needed to keep on top of the problem a little longer. The story is rushed and incoherent, and never lives up to the art.
I THINK the story is about a city in which supernatural things are occurring, including demonic possessions. I THINK that a small group of teen

I picked up the first \ volume of this series from 2006 from my local library, I needed a break from novels and this seemed like a cute series. The main characters have super powers (all but the young boy in the series) that they use to help catch murderers. My favorite power (besides the one with cats ears, so cute) was one girl who can make things happen with her words alone. It wasn't my all time favorite manga but it was fun to read.

I recommend checking this series out, it is super cute and

I thought this book was a solid start to a new series (and as always, Del Rey is deliciously lovely in its layout, packaging, and translation notes). I'm not quite sure where it's all going, but I really loved the art style (less cute and detailed, more action oriented and clear lines). I'm hoping the second volume will deepen the story a bit. All in all, though, a nice crossover book that should appeal to both girl and guy manga fans.

I'm definitely glad that I watched the anime series before reading the first volume of the manga. The manga doesn't do much to set up the world or the characters, and I think that without already having been grounded in the anime, I wouldn't have understood what was going on.

I'm looking forward to reading more of the series, to see what happens after the anime ended.

So far, I'm thinking that it's pretty good.
This book was one of the books that I got for free at some school thing and I was pretty happy to find manga!
I've started to watch the anime, too, and so far, so good.

I've been looking for a scarf just like Hime-chan's! Maybe I'll cosplay as her for an upcoming anime convention.

I wonder why Del Rey has so many amazing title but also so many amazingly bad titles. Yozakura Quartet belongs to the second category. I couldn't get past half the book.

The premise is kind of silly, and many of the stories are silly, but some are kind of dark. Also, I want a town with giant magic pillars.
