Synopsis

19th century England. Christmas Day.

A young thief, Salt, and his partner-in-crime Pierre come across a strange-looking traveller with a penchant for sweets. The only thing of value Salt finds in the traveller’s bag is an odd compass, so he steals it – only for monsters to come after him a few hours later! Why are they after Salt? And what does the traveller want with him?? It’s a fantastic winter tale of magic!

It is a somewhat common story, although it is a little bit unique; that's how I see it. The story doesn't get very deep, and it only has a little bit of background information. Although I could understand what was going on at the time, I didn't truly know why all those things were happening. The story had a lot of potential to it and could have gone deeper if there were more chapters to it. However, the end did put me in a melancholy state for a little while.

I've never been much of a critic with art. I liked the character's designs, although there read more

This is really the prequel to Noel la Neige, so it is a Christmas story, but the "prequel" is longer than the one shot story. It is set in the 1800's in England. Think of it as Dickens Christmas Carol, meets Oliver Twist meets bischie from Bleach.... If you like different type of Christmas stories like Nightmare Before Christmas try it. It is rather sad, a tragedy, so it might make you cry, it's an original story and I enjoyed it.
If you like different sort of Christmas stories - I would suggest Holy Glory, Noel la Neige and Yoroshiku Master. These are supernatural shoujos with Christmas themes and bishies. Holy Glory and Noel la Neige are related to each other while Yoroshiku Master has a different take on a Christmas magic theme but both have shape shifting magic users.
