did not like it

I find it surprising how many people rate this series so highly. I guess it is an acquired taste. I’m not usually one to judge a manga or anime on the artwork or to let it get in the way of reading it but personally, I cannot stand Tarako Kotobuki’s drawing style. I don’t even like the look of any of her characters. I don’t expect them to be all pretty-pretty but to me they just look odd. Not only because they inhabit a world where hands and feet can be twice the size of your entire head. Most of the time it’s not a stylistic choice, it’s just lazy. The lack of detail is disappointing, even with a simplistic drawing style. There are certain panels that are drawn marginally well so Kotobuki proves that she does have the ability.

Sara This is good art. -_- Trust me. Ive read/looked at thousands of manga. It can get pretty gruesome. If you want to give it a shot, this manga has 2 OVAs. :)

Jennifer Yeah, I agree. I'm usually able to get over an artstyle I'm not too fond of I just.. couldn't. Which is a shame, cause the story seems like a good one.
