LG (A Library Girl's Familiar Diversions)
Ohmigod, ohmigod, I have to buy more volumes of this! Well, actually, I have the first two volumes, and it turns out there are only three total, so I guess I only need to get one more. While I'm happy I won't need to make a huge monetary investment to own all of this, I'm already sad that this series is so short. Because, ohmigod, it's good.

Ok, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying that you should drop everything and go out and buy this - just because I love this series so far doesn't m

Good, the art got a little loose in spots but not bad.

The story surprised me actually, I just thought it was a punk band manga not a supernatural one.

The story was better than I expected it to be, but still not amazing. Personally not a big fan of the art style.

I don't have a lot of English-language manga in my repertoire, so I was first drawn to Lijewski's series simply out of curiosity. The story itself is actually a nice change from the usual manga/manhwa I pick up, perhaps due to the more familiar (Western) environments, settings, characters, etc. The heroine, Cree, is in a struggling rock band desperate for a new bass player to replace her ex-boyfriend.

Second time around, I couldn't give this manga my original five stars.

I think Lijewski has very interesting art, no doubt about that. Her characters are distinct and her idea is pretty original. Good humor mixed with seriousness throughout. But I think this manga was a little too melodramatic for me. I'm going to continue, however, because this manga IS good enough to keep me interested. Plus, I borrowed it from a friend, so no money lost on my part.

Original English Language manga created by Christy Lijewski, who was a runner-up winner for her short story, "Doors" in TOKYOPOP’s third Rising Stars of Manga talent search competition. Cute, cute, cute punk rock illustrations!
