My Thoughts


Review covers 25 chapters 

Hello everyone and welcome back to Katie’s Corner! Today is a manga day and I’m covering another work by Kaji Eiri. I’ve covered some time ago her another work, called “My master is a demon”, if you want to you can read the review here. But let me get back to today’s manga. Why did I even reread the whole thing before writing review? And that’s with me having read the story roughly 4 times, maybe even more? Well, I didn’t want to miss anything wanted the review to be as full as I could even make it, while it’s still being translated to English. And while I’m writing, I’m basically covering only 9 volumes. There are 11 volumes in total if I am not mistaken.

See this faces? Aren't they just awesome?
Why is this story s interesting? Well, the art is amazing that’s the first thing, but the whole thing is moving around special investigating police department, meaning many interesting cases, and oh, did I forgot to mention some supernatural things going around there? I did, didn’t I? Well, you have half the picture now. Why only half? Heh, add to that whole mix a gorgeous 17 year old Fuyuki with supernatural powers and a 26 year old handsome Kuze, and you’ll get 4/5 of the whole story. Interested? I advise you to be, because this story is exceptional in everything. The way characters interact, the cases they have to solve, the atmosphere around them. Just remembering, makes my blood boil with excitement and that’s a rare thing to happen to me.

Each chapter is a separate case, well, sometimes two or three chapters make one case, but you can’t say that the story progresses too slow. It progresses pretty fast and even if you do mot see it, trust me it’s there. The small gestures, some words and phrases make the relationship between Fuyuki and Kuze move into the right direction. And right now, Fuyuki’s idiocy is keeping her from completely understand Kuze’s words. Which in the beginning you’ll think that Fuyuki is the more straightforward one, it appears to be actually Kuze. Well, he is much older, so that maybe the reason too. His true intentions could be seen from end of the 1st volume, while Fuyuki understand her feelings only somewhere in 3rd or 4th volume. And from that time you’re really supporting them, shouting j: “just confess normally, stop with the indirect things!” that might frustrate you sometimes, but focus immediately inn other things, such as different cases and the characters themselves.

Fuyuki and Kuze, as always not paying attention to anyone!
Each character has a story to tell, not everything is yet revealed. So I don’t know for sure I might make a mini review when I finish reading the manga. There are may moments that crack you up, especially Fuyuki’s innocence and Kuze’s teasing. Those are just the best. The moment you start reading this manga. You just can’t make yourself put it down. It doesn’t matter if you have already read it once, you’ll still fund other stuff, which will suck you into it.

I hope you’ll get some time to read this manga. You’ll lose it for everything that it can show you. Enjoy every moment of it and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos here, on Katie’s Corner! Happy reading!

XOXO
