Mania: Natsume's Book of Freinds Vol. #03 Review


Midorikawa mentions in the afterword that she's tried to structure the first three volumes so that new readers can enter at any point. Considering this volume's underwhelming closing half, and the fact that she's admitted to struggling to expand the story, it feels like this restriction is starting to hold the series back; the added humor is a nice touch, but always not enough to make up for the surprisingly weak plots tacked onto three of the volume's four stories. Although the one exception to the weak plots -- plus one chapter that's carried by the humor in spite of the storyline -- is probably enough to justify a purchase for people already into the series, newcomers should look to last volume as a better place for diving in.

The story is too old to be commented.
