Haridama: Magic Cram School

3.48  ·  Rating Details ·  27 Ratings  ·  7 Reviews

Kokuyo and Harika are a little unusual–and not just because they’re sorcery students. They’re Obsidians, wizards who must use enchanted swords to help them cast spells.

Haridama: Magic Cram School is a fun single-shot manga book that I think should be a series. I quite enjoyed reading it and it ends leaving the impression that there may be more books to follow. But since there isn't a number "1" anywhere on this book, it looks like I may be out of luck.

I did not intentionally pick up this one shot by Atsushi Suzumi because I just finished reading her series Venus Versus Virus... it was purely coincidental! I really liked this one shot. It was sweet and cute and had a fun little storyline. I actually wish there were more volumes to make this a series!
An interesting story about two sorcerers who are completely pathetic on their own but together kick massive butt. It's short (only one volume) so I recommend it even if you're not normally into magic manga..
This was really cute, and it had a lot of solid potential in terms of characters and story, as well as artwork. I would've preferred this to be a two-three volume series - but it was good nonetheless.

Mini-review to come.
